Body Shop: Honey& Oat 3 in 1 scrub mask


I've been in the market for a new exfoliator for a while now as i've been using my St.Ives one religiously for years.  After a little on the The Body Shop website I decided on a mask/exfoliator that sounded rather appealing.

When i first used it on it's own i must say i was quite disappointed. It didn't really exfoliate my skin; at all.


However, my skin was left feeling softer than it was previously so i did a little experimenting. I exfoliated with my St.Ives exfoliator and used this as a mask afterwards- i was WOWED by the results. My skin was left feeling plump and soft (i got really odd looks on the tube whilst constantly stroking my face but it just felt so smooth!).


I think the word "Exfoliator" is a bit misleading as it barely exfoliates, it's more of a skin booster.


Overall this is a fabulous product; as a mask. It leaves your skin feeling as smooth as a babies bottom and as fresh as a bright summers day. It retails for £10 at the body shop. Buy (here).

  5. I'd love to try it as a mask, never seen this before!
    Have you tried liquid exfoliators? Most of them I've seen talked about are really expensive but Pixi do a good affordable one and I'm using one from Aveda that's incredible. They're definitely worth giving a try.

  15. Maybe add some sugar when you need to exfoliate ,since it does sound like an amazing skin nourisher .

    1. I found it moisturising but not overly moisturising. As for sensitive skin i can't be 100% sure but my skin wasn't red at all or sore after using it so my guess is yes!

  29. It's disappointing that this product doesn't work well as an exfoliator. It sounds like a very yummy smelling mask though~ Good that you still like how it works as a mask ^-^
