The Body Shop Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask | Review

I’ve been using this cult face mask for 5 months now and I’ve only just got round to reviewing it since I need to take my time with skincare items.

What is The Body Shop Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask?

The Body Shop Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask is described as:

This invigorating charcoal face mask draws out impurities and refines the appearance of pores for healthy-looking skin with a glow that shows. Complete your facial at home expert by applying this purifying blend with our Facial Mask Brush


The mask claims to pull out all the impurities from your face to leave you fresh and glowing.

It also says that it leaves you with a tingling sensation which I can totally confirm.

Don’t quote me on this, but in beauty blogger circles it’s pretty much known as a Dupe for the Glamglow Youthmud mask which retails at £42 and is heralded as a facelift in a jar.

The Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask retails for £17.00.



I really enjoy using this mask even though it really tingles after a few minutes, but that’s when I know it’s working.

I put it on with the Facial Mask Brush which at first seemed a bit excessive, but is actually not only more hygienic because you’re not dipping your fingers in, it makes the product last longer as you use less of it.

If this mask is still unaffordable, one of my lovely readers gave us a wonderful DIY recipe which is slightly cheaper!

Have you ever tried The Body Shop Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask and if not, would you?

    I remember your aloe vera and Multani Mitti post. I just bought myself a good supply of pure aloe vera gel from India, and I’ve been using it as facial moisturizer (aloe vera on its own), hair mist (mixed with tea), face mist (mixed with rose water with vitamin C, bought in Karachi), and face primer. The only thing left is for me to actually eat it now, haha. Oh, I also bought Multani Mitti and sandalwood powder (but hadn’t gotten around to making the face mask yet). I haven’t used any commercially available face moisturizer for a month now and I think my skin feels better, alhumdulillah.

    I’m intrigued by the sandalwood powder! I’ll have to look into that and see if I can find it in the stores here.

    What a wonderful plant aloe vera is, and I’m so glad you’ve found so many uses for it!

    I’ve not tried it but been meaning to! How often are you supposed to use it?

    Hi Britpak girl and thank you for taking the time to comment! I think it really depends on your skin. It’s quite a “heavy” clay mask My husband has more sensitive skin so only uses it once a month, whereas I have quite oily/combination skin so I should use it every 2 weeks especially on my T-zone but I’m really bad at sticking to a skincare routine, maybe there’s a post in that haha!

    I’m very impressed if your husband uses it too! I have trouble getting my husband to go to the steam room when on holiday let alone a put on a mask. Yes definitely no one has time or really wants to spend time on skincare but we all know we should!
