Another Aesop Parsley Seed Mask

To relate beauty products to food is a bit of a stretch, but we all have our pantry staples: quinoa, maple syrup, and loads of almond butter...loads. We all have our beauty staples too, whether it be mascara to concealer; one of mine is the Aesop Parsley Seed Deep Cleansing Mask. You've seen this black and white printed tube a few times before, non? Perhaps it was in the arsenals of other beauty stashes, or, most likely, you've seen it on Parisian To Be, because the times I've spoken of it are not far and few between. With my initial review out of the way and my first tube down, I've now tapped the most remarkable characteristics of this skincare miracle.

Unlike most clay masks that leave the skin squeaky stripped, this one balances the edge between "clean" and "nourished;" perhaps it's the parsley seed oil--whatever that is. Above all though, most clay masks always aid to draw impurities out of the skin. But it's rather ironic that these masks cause breakouts, instead of shoving them to the curb. That's what I adore about this mask--it minimizes spots, not makes them worse. Impurities aside, one application of this and you're left with baby smooth skin. And this mask is also cleansing, yet perfected for sensitive skin types, as well. Although the price may deter you, it will last you a long time; mine lasted nine months (and for a period, I was using it twice weekly).

No matter what your skin type, you need this in your arsenal. You won't be disappointed. And who doesn't want a spot reducing, smoothing, and slightly nourishing treatment?


  1. Oh this is honestly the best mask I have tried and trust me I have tried a lot!

  3. I walked past the Aesop store in NYC when I was visiting last weekend, and I regret it so much that I didn't walk in and buy this!


  4. I really need to try this! I've only ever heard good things

    I heard so many good things about this and it's on the top of my to-buy-list :)


  6. That's great to know, even though I feel the same way; I'm sure there are masks that you have tried that I haven't. And Aesop still reigns supreme. x

  7. Hmmm, may it just didn't work with your skin or you don't have congestion issues (lucky you). Everyone's skin is different. x

  8. Birthday list? (: x

  9. Ah, I would love to go into one of their stores, just to wash my hands at one of their lush sinks and get some samples. x

  10. Give it a go! x

  11. Ah, that's so exciting. x

  12. Well said about this mask, it is just a perfect balance to use prolly 2x a week and not feel like a heavy treatment has been done. I've gone through a couple samples, but I have a feeling I'd like this in my collection in the near future :3
