After my two month battle to restore my skin back to it’s normal/combination self, things got a bit low on the ground when it came to skincare (and eyeshadow too, actually). How was I meant to recommend anything – minus the odd moisturiser – when my skin was completely out of sorts and looked terrible? I’m happy to say it’s much more on the normal side now, and I feel like my old self again. Once my skin started to return to it’s normal self the first thing I tried out was the Aesop Parsley Seed Cleansing Masque. A present from Luce (could you have guessed?) that I’d been itching to crack open since I unwrapped it!
So, thoughts? I’d heard other girls say a hundred times over that this mask almost works as an undo button if you’ve neglected your skincare throughout the week. I’m pretty good with my routine so I can’t vouch for that one – yet – but I’ve noticed my skin has been much better behaved since I started using this. I use it on a Sunday and a Wednesday to draw out any nasties lurking below the surface of my skin, making it look much clearer, and to perk up my complexion. Most masks I’ve used that extract impurities have been a little on the drying side but this mask is a good one for not being overly drying or leaving your skin feeling tight after – having just got out of a serious dry skin rut, I really appreciate this.
My Origins Clear Improvement Mask has officially been cast aside in favour of this, it really is such a great mask. If you’re looking for a good cleansing mask I’d definitely look into this one. However it is worth being aware that it can really break some people out at first. Most people I know have been fine but there are some cases where it can be a bit too much for some peoples skin, so if you’re prone to break outs you might want to speak to one of their consultants on counter before taking the plunge.
Seeing as my first Aesop experience has been a really positive one, I think I might invest in some more products from them – any recommendations? Pen and paper are at the ready…
