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.
