Aesop Primrose Facial Cleansing Mask Review

My Experience with Aesop Primrose Facial Cleansing Mask
Although I have normal to dry skin, but the lady at the Aesop counter suggested that I could use this mask as well because it is a deep cleansing treatment for the skin. And then follow it up with  a moisturiser. After using it a couple of times I have to say that this mask is strictly meant for oily skin.

It is a pre-prepared thick clay mask. You just have to apply it directly on your skin and, if required, use water to spread it evenly. One me, the face pack dries completely in 4-5 minutes but I let it sit around for another 10 minutes or so. The skin feels quite tight once the mask dries. It smells very soothing, a little lavender-ish. Once you wash it off your skin looks and feels very clean. But I have dry skin and if I don’t apply a moisturiser within minutes of using it it makes my skin super dry, stretched and flaky. It feels as if it soaks up every last trace of oil and moisture from my skin. Once I forgot to moisturise for 15-20 minutes and my skin was literally peeling. 😐 So I would strictly suggest you stay away from this if you have normal to dry skin. But if you have acne prone or oily skin, this pack may really help you in keeping your pores clean and keeping oil at bay.
It comes packed in a simple glass jar with screw cap. I quite like the packaging of all Aesop products. I like how minimal and simple they are.

Overall this did not work for me mostly because it is not meant for my skin types. But people with oily skin could give this a try.
