I’ve been using the Aesop Parsley Seed mask for quite a while now and after the bout of sun we had last weekend which caused me to reach for it more than usual I decided it might be time to review it.  ‘ve been really into face masks lately and I was finally excited to get my hands on this much talked about mask when I went to London in the middle of April.  I’ve heard so much about it and was particularly interested in it due to it being ok for sensitive and dry skin.

Essentially, this is a clay mask and Aesop describe it as ‘an anti-oxidant clarifying masque designed for frequent deep cleansing.’  As with most clay masks, the idea is that it will draw out all the impurities whilst gently cleansing the skin.  I’ve been using it once a week after cleansing my face.  I paint it on to my face with my ‘face mask’ brush and leave it for anywhere between 15 and 30 minutes depending on how congested my skin is feeling.  Then I wash it off and continue with my standard evening routine of toning and moisturising.  I find that after using this mask my skin feels even cleaner than it did after the cleansing stage of the routine (something which I didn’t think possible.)

This product has been a life saver the past few weeks and as mentioned this bank holiday weekend I couldn’t have been without it.  Due to being so busy lately I haven’t been spending as long as I should on my skincare routine and this came back to bite me in the bum when the sun came out to play.  All my toxins were bought to the surface and my face was more like a dot to dot puzzle than anything else. Que the Aesop mask to the rescue as a few uses of this calmed down my face and reduced redness and spot size.  It’s not a miracle worker and it took a few applications over the course of the week but my skin is looking a lot better than it was.

Price wise, this is a little eye watering at £27 for  60ml but it has honestly lasted me ages as you only need a think layer unlike most other clay masks.  I honestly feel like I’ve barely dented the tube in the last seven weeks.  Speaking of the tube, I adore the simple apothecary packaging that Aesop use.  Their range is instantly recognisable.  It is also worth mentioning at this point that that every Aesop counter I have visited has been a wonderful experience.  The sales staff let you play with the products and throw in lots of samples when you purchase something.

I picked up mine from Selfridges, but i know you can pick it up from liberty’s and online at Cult Beauty and Beauty Expert with free delivery(at the time of writing).  I’d love to get something else to try from Aesop, any suggestions?
