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?
