Make sensitive skin smile…
From discomfort and dryness to aggravating city pollutants, it’s no wonder that according to Google search, interest globally for ‘sensitive skin’ has grown by almost 50% over the past 5 years* – proof that if you have a sensitive complexion (that can at times seem absolutely impossible, right?), you certainly aren’t alone.
Don’t worry, help is at hand. And no, it’s not a super expensive, high-end product you can only order online – this 100% vegan skincare hero can actually be shopped on the high street, and it definitely won’t break the bank.
Yes, beloved UK brand The Body Shop has answered our dry, sensitive skin prayers with its new Mediterranean Almond Milk & Oats Instant Soothing Mask (£17, rrp). Formulated to help ease feelings of dry, tight and itchy skin whilst at the same time gently exfoliating for a smoother looking finish. Great news for those that may have previously steered away from exfoliants because they can be too aggravating.
Enriched with prebiotics to enhance your skin’s microbiome (AKA, your skin’s natural cell community), this gentle yet nourishing formula will relieve discomfort, refine surface texture and restore your skin’s natural defense barrier. Plus, because we’re all striving to be more ‘clean’ when it comes to sourcing ethical and natural beauty products, it’s worth noting that this mask is formulated with oatmeal from the UK and Community Trade organic almond milk from Spain.
Think that sensitive skin products can’t smell amazing? Think again. The Community Trade organic almond milk found in this mask is a pure sensorial delight.
Also, you can feel safe in the knowledge The Body Shop are firmly against animal testing – this mask remedy comes with a cruelty-free guarantee as none of their products or ingredients are tested on animals.
And even if you don’t have sensitive skin, it’ll help moisturise and it’s perfect for a post-gym pamper or a mini home spa treat up to a couple times a week. Used alongside other products in The Body Shop’s sensitive skin range, the Mediterranean Almond Milk & Oats Instant Soothing Mask is guaranteed to #MakeYourSkinSmile.
Don’t let your sensitive skin hold you back…
