Aesop Parsley Seed Cleansing Masque


I first heard the gushings over Aesop's Parsley Seed Cleansing Masque from Anna... and like all her recommendations, this face mask that stands up to the hype. [ side note: my beauty trifecta team = Lisa Eldridge, Anna, and Caroline Hirons... they will NEVER steer you in the wrong direction. #blindfaith ]

Slap it on, rinse off after 10-15 minutes, and you're one mask application closer to gorgeous skin. The man at the Aesop store on Fillmore St. (San Francisco) told me this mask is so gentle that you could potentially use it every day. Now, I don't use it that frequently -- as I'm typically running a rotation of Biologique Recherche Masque Vivant, REN Glycol Lactic Radiance Renewal Mask, and Dermalogica Gentle Cream Exfoliant -- but it probably gets busted out of the medicine cabinet at least two times a week with happy results. However, when it comes to balancing my temperamental skin, I must say that the aforementioned Biologique Recherche Masque Vivant still holds the #1 place in my heart.


  1. My chin is the danger zone as well like you say yours and I am desperate to find a mask that works for me!


  2. I love this mask! I just recently tried what Caroline Hirons said in that pixiwoo video and paired it with the Aveda hydrating aloe mask. Holy smooth plumped skin the next day! Seriously, if you have it, try it.
    (oh and I also went to town with an oil and my moisturizer afterwards)

  3. Something about this mask grosses me out. I don't know why! But I still use it anyway cos it makes my skin feel great.
