Self Date Sunday: The Luck O' The Irish
Last weekend Z and I took to the mall for some shopping. I'm finally starting to convince him to get a jump on the christmas shopping we have to do. Anyway, while there we took a quick trip into Sephora. I'm getting really into skin/face treatments these days in preparation for (beginning to age) skin. We were planning to pick up some of our favorite Origins Active Charcoal Mask. Among a whole wall of Sephora's Favorite we found Peter Thomas Roth's Irish Moor Mud mask. While more than double the price, we were intrigued, especially since we had just been discussing a potential trip to Ireland! We bought it and headed home for a little date-in. We opened a bottle of wine from our trip to South Africa and applied the mask to our needy faces.
What I loved about this mask was it's thickness; I love a thick mud or charcoal mask that really feels like it's getting deep into my pores. The smell wasn't too chemical.
The only negative was that upon first application it stung. Like a trooper, I stuck it out and within about 5 minutes the feeling subsided.
I left it on for the suggested time and took it off with a warm wash cloth. My face ended up feeling clean and fresh after.
All in All, we may have a new favorite face mask. Who would have thought a thick Irish mud would be the cure-all to our dry, winter skin?!
