I’ve been on a look out for a gentle yet effective cleansing mask for a quite some time now and in the past 6 months i’ve been loving the Aesop Parsley Seed Cleansing Mask. This was actually gifted to me from a friend in Hong Kong just as we were about to board the plane to Seoul (Thank you Vee).
Before we talk about the product here is a little background about my skin; I have normal to sensitive skin, I do get the rare break outs but I am blessed with decent skin with no problems. Of course, my skin does get quite dry in the winter and for the summer months i’m prone to getting freckles even with layers of SPF, but for the most part it is not oily and quite manageable.
Now lets proceed!
Aesop Parsley Seed Cleansing Mask 2.40z – 60mL $60.00 CAD
Absolutely amazing! The aroma is soft with a very clean lavender scent, it’s almost musky in a way.
Simple and easy to read. Colours are minimalist – black and cream tones.
Clay – a thick paste texture.
How I use the Aesop Parsley Seed Cleansing Mask
Once a week mostly Saturdays, after cleansing I use a little more then nickel size amount and apply it thinly all over my face avoiding the eye area.
After about 15 minutes I would splash cool water to lift the product off. I tend not wash the product off my skin too harshly as I know my skin is quite sensitive after a deep cleanse.
I do want to stress that on the label it does state to use this product twice a week, I find that for my skin type twice a week is a little too much for my skin to handle. I was getting red patches as well it dried out my skin. So by using it once a week it has worked out perfectly for me, adding this is into my weekend pamper routine.
Rating this product about 8.5/10 as it is at a higher price point for the amount you do get but using it once or twice a week does make it last longer. Some of you may not need more then a nickel size although…I don’t think I even need more then a nickel size. But as for the way it works, I would say it is very effective for my skin type.
Hope you all had a great Monday!
