Serve Your Skin A Treat
Meet the new masks here to help you step up your skincare routine…
Awesome ingredients like acai berries and ginseng are no longer just what you put on your plate to be #Instahealthy – they’re now trending in our skincare, too!
The Body Shop has created five new face masks, inspired by traditional skincare remedies from around the world. Brimming with naturally-derived, 100 per cent vegetarian ingredients, these good-enough-to-eat masks will get you feeling gorgeous inside and out…

Use your 5-10 mask minutes to make a smoothie or meditate. 5 Follow with serum and moisturiser.
