The Body Shop is helping you to get your green fix with the new Japanese Matcha Tea Pollution Clearing Mask (NZ$44·95). This gorgeous, creamy mask hosts the antioxidant properties of matcha green tea, and dandelion extract from France that works its magic to reduce and remove pollutants, eliminating the effects of environmental aggressors from the skin. Natural loofah particles work to exfoliate, while alœ vera soothes the skin, making this mask gentle and ideal for all skin types. After one use, skin is left feeling purified along with a brighter complexion, as this mask rids pollutants causing dullness, resulting in overall refined, glowing skin.
The mask is matched with the new Chinese Ginseng & Rice cleanser and toner. These are enriched with ginseng and rice, and sesame seed oil which leaves skin looking brighter and revitalized. It is also ideal for all skin types.
The Clarifying Polishing Powder Wash (NZ$30) is a gentle illuminating powder that cleanses, soothes and exfoliates the skin. Mix the powder with water for your desired strength of exfoliation and gently polish your skin for a more radiant and luminous complexion. This clever cleanser is a great travel size, and smells fruity fresh with added papaya extract.
The Clarifying Milky Toner (NZ$36) is the Body Shop’s first brightening milky toner. It is boosted with ginseng root for a healthy glow and even skin tone, and formulated without alcohol, but still aids to remove make-up and cleanser residue. This toner revitalizes and smooths skin and a little goes a long way with this milky magic, making it a glowing must-have.
