Glamglow Mud Mask | Aesop Parsley Seed Facial Cleansing Masque

Santa and I have a bit of a tradition going on. For the past couple of years, come Christmas morning, he treats me to a couple of masks to help keep my skin in check and help prevent any potato induced breakouts ;) He is a kind old fellow and if you remember my post from last year (which you can find here) he is pretty darn great at picking out a winning option, or two! This time around Santa graced my stocking (and face) with these two gems, the GlamGlow Mud Mask and the Aesop Parsley Seed Mask. Both of these have been at the top of my wish list for quite a while, it’s like he had a little elf or something letting him know what was on my list (thanks Mum!) Cult masks that have received a lotta love in the beauty world throughout 2013, it’s time to slap them on, sit back, relax and let them work their magic.

The most well known out of the two would probably be the Aesop Parsely Seed Masque. A purifying and hydrating mask combined, this is one of those all rounder products that can be used on any occasion. Place a thin layer on your skin and it will begin to set similar to a clay mask. Either used alone or as part of a triple threat facial night, this helps to clear up my skin without stripping or leaving it feeling dry. The lesser known of the two goes to the GlamGlow Mud Mask. An expensive little number however you only need to apply a small amount (I’ve already used this mask twice and you can hardly notice a dent in the pot). This mask is unique in the way it tingles once applied, nothing to worry about it just means it’s doing it’s job. A more traditional clay mask this sets on the skin after the tingling has ended. I’ve found this mask gives me the most instant results after it’s removed. My skin looks brighter, more radiant and any blemishes look less angry. This small pot will still last you a while and it is also the perfect size if you want to take a mask on holiday with you. Thank you Santa for helping to make my skin beautiful
