The Body Shop Aloe Calm Sheet Mask and Vitamin E Quench Sheet Mask Reviews


The Body Shop brought out their first sheet mask at the start of the year and has recently released three more. There is Drops Of Youth, Seaweed, Aloe and Vitamin E. I love sheet masks and have done quite a few reviews here on my blog on various ones. I was really interested to try three of the four sheet masks from The Body Shop. I chose Drops Of Youth, Aloe and Vitamin E, as I thought these sounded the most suitable for my skin type. In this post I will be reviewing the two newest ones Vitamin E and Aloe and will be reviewing the Drops Of Youth in another post, at a later date.


Both of the sheet masks are a single use and the actual sheet mask is biodegradable. On the back of the packet it says “Delivers an optimal soft and smooth feeling on the skin and is produced with environmental responsibility in mind. Its’ fibres are created using a sustainable and eco-friendly process and are developed to fully biodegrade in accordance with the European EN13432 standard”.


Remove the sheet mask from the packet. Unfold and apply to the face. Smooth over the skin and I like to massage the product into my skin a bit. Leave on for 15 minutes, then take off and massage in any excess product.

Aloe Calm Sheet Mask

Available The Body Shop UK £3.50

The Aloe calm sheet mask has been formulated for sensitive and dry skin. It is enriched with Community Trade, hand filleted Aloe Vera from Campeche Mexico, which is known for its soothing properties. Also it is enriched with cucumber extract. This sheet mask is fragrance and alcohol free, so is perfect for sensitive skin. They say after using this mask, it will leave your skin feeling settled, soothed and gives it 24 hours hydration. 

They say after 4 weeks (using the mask twice a week) the overall appearance of the skin is improved, skin feels at peace and skin looks healthier. 


This sheet mask is thicker than the other ones I have tried before. It is easy to apply and smooth out over the skin. It fits the face quite well and has lots of product on the actual mask. Whilst wearing, it feels comfortable and stops in place.

When you take it off, it leaves excess product on your skin, which I massage in and you can feel it soaking into the skin more. It will take a few minutes to fully soak into the skin, but once it has it doesn’t leave it feeling sticky or greasy.

My skin feels so soothed and when I had some red blemishes it had calmed them down as well. The skin looks so much fresher, brighter and more plumped from the boost of hydration. It leaves the skin feeling so soft and looks smoother. Also it feels so hydrated, which my skin loves. I didn’t find my skin needed anymore skincare products applying over the top, so just left it overnight. The next morning my skin was still feeling really hydrated and soft. I just love how my skin feels and looks after using this mask and can see such a difference.

Vitamin E Quench Sheet Mask

Available The Body Shop UK £3.50

The Vitamin E sheet mask is suitable for all skin types. It is enriched with Vitamin E, natural-origin hyaluronic acid from Pomacle France, Wheatgerm oil and Community Trade Aloe Vera from Campeche Mexico. They say its moisturising effects can help ward off dryness, giving you instantly locked in moisture and 24 hours of hydration. They say after using this mask, it will leave your skin feeling softer, smoother and gives it 24 hours hydration. 

They say after 4 weeks (using the mask twice a week) the overall appearance of the skin is improved, skin feels plumper and skin looks healthier. 


It has the same scent as the Vitamin E skincare range, which you can smell whilst wearing the mask, but then afterwards I didn’t really notice it.

The mask leaves my skin feeling so soft, it looked smoother and I also noticed that my pores looked smaller. It leaves my skin looking fresher and brighter. Also it feels so hydrated, making the skin plumped again from the hydration boost. The same as the last one I didn’t feel my skin needed anymore skincare products adding to it. The next morning my skin was still feeling soft and hydrated. I really liked how my skin felt after using this mask and could definitely see and feel the difference it had made.

I really liked both of the sheet masks, but the Aloe was my favourite, as my skin really loved that one and will definitely be repurchasing. 

These are available to buy from The Body Shop UK

    1. They are both fab masks and yes I love a good sheet mask as well. You'll have to let me know what you think, if you buy any.

  2. I am not a fan of sheet masks, I prefer traditional ones, but I do enjoy the Vitamin E line from The Body Shop.

    1. I love sheet masks and the traditional ones. The Vitamin E range is lovely and my favourite product from the range is the lip care one.

  3. I'd like to try the Aloe one but the last time I tried some Vitamin E products, they really stung my face! xx

  4. I've been on the quest to find sheet masks I actually love. My biggest pet peeve is when they don't fit my face (which is a common issue for me). I've been wanting to get into more skincare from the body shop as I've loved what I've tried.

    1. I love sheet masks and Garnier have a couple that are favourites of mine. I also loved The Body Shop Aloe one and have repurchased some more today. The Body Shop have so many great products, definitely worth checking some more out.
