LET'S REVIEW!Today, I'm reviewing the Body Shop Tea Tree Face Mask. (Woah, that's a mouthful.)
- one jar lasts for 6 months
- makes skin feel tingly and clean
- shrinks pimples
- not too messy once applied
- cost $15
- take a while to dry once applied
- hard to wash off... I waste a lot of water trying to wash the mask off my face
- has a strong smell (some people don't like the smell, but I like it, so hey whatevs)
How I use it: Before using any mask, always wash your face with a cleanser; make sure no traces of makeup is on your face, or dirt, oils, bacteria, whatever. Anyway, I just wash my face (using SpectroJel, purple bottle, right now! It's really good! Anyways..), dry it by dabbing my face with a towel, and then I open the Tea Tree Face Mask jar and apply it with my fingers. I tend to use a lot, but even so, I just began to run out of the mask after 6 months of using it! Let it dry on your face. Usually I let it sit for like an hour, or even two hours, while I'm doing homework, or on the computer. I like it because it doesn't drip or dry really quickly that you're basically just washing your face twice, and that I can multi-task while having the mask on.
After it's dry and your skin doesn't feel so tingly and fresh anymore, wash it off with warm water. This is the tricky part. You don't want to rub too hard, but if you don't rub, the mask won't come all the way off. So this is one of the 'cons' because it takes a longer time to wash off than to apply. After five minutes of gently washing your face, it should come off and you can dab your face lightly with a towel until dry.
Remember to put moisturizer on after! The mask usually makes my skin feel light and clean after, which is great because that's what a mask should do!
Recommend? YES! It's worth the $15, because it lasts so long. It has improved my acne, and it makes my skin feel great! However, everybody's skin is different. But going out and buying this mask won't cost you a fortune, and you should definitely at least try it.
(I know it's a high rating, but I feel like it deserves one! However, if I could, I'd probably give it 4 1/2 stars instead of 5, just because of how long it takes to wash off. But it's nothing big because this doesn't harm my skin in any negative way, so it doesn't really matter.)
Hope you found this review helpful!
Next time, I'll probably blog about some of my natural, homemade masks that I also use whenever my skin feels dull, irritated, or bored (no, not my skin... I meant, when I feel bored... nothing like applying a mask to get the blood pumping)! :P

Has anyone noticed how long my blog posts are getting? Like, whoaa...
Maybe it's 'cause I don't usually have time to blog daily so I just cram everything I wanna say into one huge post...
Does this annoy anybody? If it does, please kindly say so in the comments, 'cause I can totally start writing shorter posts and in shorter time intervals too.
Alright, THOUGHT OF THE DAY (sorry another random thing I'm thinking about now):
Inuyasha theme songs are amazing.
Every Heart - BoA
Shinjitsu no uta (Song of truth) - Do as infinity
Shinjitsu no uta is my favourite.
And Kikyo's theme makes me cry:
I think I'm just a nerd. I've liked Inuyasha since I was in grade 8 (it's really the only manga/anime I enjoy, other than Deathnote (OMG GUYS I MUST BLOG ABOUT DEATHNOTE.. LATER..)! And 5 years later, here I am, reading the manga (here currently) over again, instead of studying or doing homework. =_=
Anyway, what do you guys think about Inuyasha? Or anime in general?
