Aesop Parsley Seed Mask

aesop_parsley_seed_mask.jpg wpid-20150629_132049.jpgThis one has received some slap for having irritating ingredients in it. My experience with it was quite good. It has a cooling effect as you apply and unless you keep it on longer than required (15 min), it does not pull on your skin. It soothed my bumpy skin and didn’t feel dry after. Having this used twice in the last two weeks, I have to say it’s not a game changer. The pore cleansing action is mild at best. Which is not necessarily a bad thing. Given how few clay masks work well with dry/dehydrated skin.

There’s another mask that comes to my mind -Apivita Pink Clay. Worth look into if you don’t use clay masks often and don’t need a full size product. This one comes in a pack of two sachets with a generous amount of product for £3.

Parsley Seed mask is quite heavy herbal on the scent, nearly identical to Weleda Skin Food. I noticed how each time it made my skin oily the next morning. Not sure if that’s good or bad. It didn’t break me out. Just wondering if anyone else had a similar reaction? It’s priced at £27, available at Cult Beauty, Mankind, Selfridges, Liberty.

It looks so good on medium tan skin. YSL Rouge Volupte Shine in Orange Impertinent is slightly on the orange side, so summery and perfect for the daytime.

I can’t usually use clay masks because of the horrible way they pull on the skin and leave the skin stripped of any oil. If you have the same problem, you’ll be pleased to know this one didn’t do that!

Weekend Face | Deep Cleansing

aesop_parsley_seed_mask.jpgaesop_parsley_seed_mask.jpgtrevor_sorbie_shampoo.jpgtrevor_sorbie_straight_shampoo.jpgThis month involved ton of tube travel, fish and chips and walking about in London. I feel like I need to detox, fill my tummy with tons of greens and squeeze them gunk out the pores.

Starting with my mini Thermal Cleansing Balm from Omorovicza, love this stuff. Sadly, it’s almost run out. Finally got around to using Aesop’s Parsley Seed mask. This smells so good -essential oils and herbal. I will do a full review on this after. For hair bits, I switched to Trevor Sorbie straight shampoo and conditioner. This is a weekend thing I have been doing for the past few months. Loreal’s Ever Riche range has been my daily shampoo,conditioners for over a year now but overtime, it tends to weigh my hair down a bit. Trevor Sorbie shampoo has SLS in it, which is not ideal but it’s not too stripping either. The conditioner is thick and does a good basic conditioning job.

Better get to it now..Have a good weekend, everyone!
