Aesop Primrose Facial Cleansing Masque - 60ml/£23 - 120ml/£33
It was around a year ago my sister first introduced me to Aesop, an amazing shop in Soho (with various others in London) but she always made it clear I didn't need anything from there. Without her there to warn me off from buying anything and a voucher in my back pocket, I took a trip there and purchased my first product. You may be familiar with the Parsley Seed range, for all you combination spot prone girls out there, I've never read a bad review about the products and my sister swears by the masque.
When you arrive at the shop, one of the girls will take you over to the sink to start your consultation where they ask you questions about your skin, you know the usual things, before applying products onto your hands which they feel will be best for you. I've found that these girls know their stuff so trust them, they're well trained and will help you. I explained that I have dry skin what is reacting to this weird weather at the moment, however that it's turning slightly oily and I need something to get rid of that. She suggested this one as it's described as a 'clarifying clay formulation which decongests and refreshes skin while delivering optimal hydration'. One of the main ingredients is Vitamin E which will ensure that it won't strip my skin of hydration.
They suggest to use it twice weekly so that's what I've been doing so far. I will apply a thin layer to my skin, wait for it to dry before washing it off with warm water. I've used some masques before, but from what they've left my skin like, it was clear they were never right for my skin. This leaves it feeling fresh, glowing and smooth, with the right amount of moisture left in my skin. The oiliness on my t-zone is wiped away and I find that it also gets rid of those pesky little blackheads I can never make disappear.
If you're ever in London, pop by the store on Broadwick street (seriously the store alone will make you want to buy things), or you can buy them online here. Plus I've just found out there's a store in Borough Market, which is literally at the top of my street. Guess where I'm going on Saturday?
Have you tried anything by Aesop?
