Aesop Parsley Seed Facial Cleansing Mask - The purified clay draws out impurities; the Aloe Vera ensures this doesn't leave your skin feeling tight, while the Rosehip & Parsley Seed extracts deliver a big dose of anti-oxidants to perk up your skin. - Cult Beauty. I use this mask when my skin is feeling congested and like it needs a deep clean. Think your clarifying shampoo but for your face. It's also suited to dry and sensitive skin which not all clay masks are so this is perfect for me. It's thinner than most clay masks which makes applying it easier. I leave it on for 15 minutes after cleansing and then wash it away with a muslin cloth or a Liz Earle Sponge. The scent is a mix of lavender and herbs which makes it relaxing and perfect to use before bed. Once washed off I'm left with fresh feeling and looking skin. It's expensive though at £27 but I've had my tube for a few months and it looks like I've barely used any.
Antipodes Aura Manuka Honey Mask - This is a two in one mask I use when my skin is needing both hydration and deep cleansing. The manuka honey draws moisture to the skin and it has a lovely vanilla and mandarin scent. I apply a thick layer and leave on for around 15 minutes before washing away with a muslin cloth. I find this really calming to my sensitive skin and leaves it feeling very soft. I bought it from Feel Unique for £21.50.
This Works Perfect Skin Super Moisturiser - You can probably tell this post has been siting in my drafts pile for a while as I've since finished this moisturiser and featured it in my June Empties. I know products don't always work for everyone but since this moisturiser was raved about so much I thought it would have to be good. I was quite disappointed with it and wont be buying another tube. It's a good moisturiser and didn't irritate my skin but it's just that, a good moisturiser. It isn't worth the £22.50 price tag. I do really like the packaging though but wasn't a fan of the scent.
