Last night as I was applying my favourite face mask for a bit of evening pampering, I decided I would write a blog post about it to share with you all. I have a lot of favourite products that are not new to the market and therefore haven’t written about them, but then I thought, why not write about them? Some of the greatest products out there are classics! So going forward I’ve decided to add a new section to my blog called ‘My Faves’.
For this post, I’m talking about my Eve Lom Rescue Mask. This face mask is by no means new on the market, in fact many of you may have already tried it, but it’s the best one that I’ve come across in a long time and have been using it for over a year now. I apply it usually around every two weeks or so and still love it as much now as the first time I tried it.
The Rescue Mask is made of a clay called Kaolin Clay and contains some great ingredients such as honey and sweet almond. According to Eve Lom; Kaolin Clay (absorbs excess oils and reduces puffiness), Camphor (cools and decongests), Ground Almonds (gently exfoliates) and Honey (conditions the skin).
The mask is quite thick, as you would imagine from any clay mask, and I tend to apply a generous amount all over my face, obviously avoiding my eyes and mouth. The mask smells amazing, and starts to dry into the skin and harden quite quickly after application, so be prepared to sit quietly for ten to fifteen minutes while the mask does its work. The perfect excuse for some quiet time!
After roughly fifteen minutes, I splash some warm water over my face, then using a warm damp muslin cloth, gently wipe and remove the mask from my face.
The softness of my skin after this mask is just incredible, and it also leaves skin looking fresh and glowing. So in other words what I’m saying here, is that Eve Lom is very justified in its product description. It reduces puffiness, it decongests, it exfoliates and it conditions. What more could you need in a mask?!
The 50ml tube that I have will set you back €45 so it’s not cheap, but it will last you around three to six months depending on how often you use it. So given the lasting time, to me that’s not bad.
If you’ve tried this, or decide to try it then I’d love to hear your thoughts, and I’d love to hear about your favourite masks too. As you know, I’m always on the lookout for new things to try so send them on!
