Aesop Chamomile Concentrate Anti-Blemish Masque

A no fuss, no hassle but genuinely works for you masque I wanted to introduce to you - Meet my Aesop Chamomile  Concentrate Anti-Blemish Masque (£33.00/ HK$380).

Walking into an Aesop shop or its specialist counter within any big department store, you might find yourself wandering around inside a laboratory - taking you way back to your school days, perhaps?

Inside this dark brown opaque glass jar, it contains this dusty pink slightly clay-looking masque.  The scent of this masque is very natural and herbally.   Some of the ingredients include: Chamomile Bud, Tea Tree Leaf and Evening Primrose - all anti-flammatoray and calming stuff, good for your skin.

Ever since I relocated from London to Hong Kong, I encounter more episodes of blemishes on my face, in particular the forehead areas.  I needed a remedy to treat this.  This masque serves the problems really satisfactorily.  

I have dry and sensitive skin, and from the past 4 months that I have been using this, I have not had any reactions from this masque.  Whenever my skin feels irritated, bumpy and distressed, I slap this on after I cleanse my face in the evening, then let this good stuff dries slowly on your face, roughly it takes around 10-15mins.  Rinse it off the apply toner and a serum/ moisturiser.  My skin feel instantly calmed and less red, in my face.

I feel that my skin is not left stripped off either after treating it with this masque.  The effect lasts until the next morning, areas where affected by blemishes are a lot more controlled, and some are even dried up which speeds up the healing and recovering process.

I don't overdo my skin with this though despite such a great result, meaning: I only use this once a week maximum.  NB I found that if I overdo it with my skin treatments - too many masque applications, it distresses my skin.

Is Aesop a brand you have tried before?  What's your favourite anti-blemish masque?
