Elemental Herbology- Facial Glow Mask



As it feels like we’re still in the dead of Winter here in the UK I’ve been desperately seeking the perfect face exfoliant. Something gentle yet effective that will give my skin a new lease of life, and rid it of dry patches and generally give my somewhat sallow complexion a bit of a kick start as Spring is (fingers crossed) just around the corner. Now of course I can fake it all day long, I can dust myself down in piles of Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Powder (I am so in love with it- perfection) and contour my cheeks all day long with Laguna, and ta dah I look nearly radiant. However I want the real deal- I want to have luminous radiant skin without all the slap.

Cue- Elemental Herbology the Facial Glow mask. EH are a brand I’ve long been intrigued by as their ingredients are 100% natural- no pesky mineral oils woohoo! They’ve been on the peripherals of my beauty vision for a while now and recently whilst on a Space NK peruse I was plied with quite a few sachet samples of the EH facial glow mask. Packed full of Papaya, Vitamin C and Manuka Honey it definitely sounded right up my street and with zero mineral oils I was fairly sure it wouldn’t aggravate my skin.

After pre-cleansing with my L’Oreal Micellar Water and cleansing with my Emma Hardie Moringa cleansing balm I slathered it onto my face and neck. It has a sort of grainy yet milky consistency synonomous with exfoliators, however, they were not too harsh- just grainy enough. It is barely noticeable on as it dries quite clear, so you don’t scare any boyfriends/husbands or family members whilst you wait for 4-10 minutes.

I left it on until I felt a tingle and then removed it with a warm flannel. My skin instantly felt baby smooth. I finished up with my usual Effaclar Duo and Dermalogica Intense Moisture Balance and went to bed.ElementalHerbology-nextday

The next morning I could hardly believe it, my complexion was completely boosted- totally clear and supple to touch. My makeup went on like a dream. This is definitely a product I intend to buy the full version of. I would recommend either using this once a week as an exfoliating and radiance enhancing mask/peel or if that feels too indulgent- save it for the night before a big event as the next day your skin will be beauty editorial good!
