Meet me in France, mon chéri!
Now that little Miss Aev is on a somewhat predictable schedule, I’m excited about getting back into skincare and herbal remedies. Let’s play in this deliciously green purifying mask by L’Occitane en Provence!
If you enjoy the smell of thyme, you’ll love this mask. Organic thyme is high in zinc and known for its ability to reduce skin imperfections. The texture is mattifying, and is designed to slurp up excess sebum.
I was excited to see olive leaf on the ingredient list. If you’ve been around since the early days of my blog, you know how much I stan olive leaf. Olive leaf powder provides gentle exfoliation
I had to rush through the rinse-off process because Aevrie was screaming from boredom, but the application was so pleasing.
How to Apply L’Occitane en Provence’s Purifying Mask:
1) Apply a thick layer to clean, dry skin.
2) Leave on for 5 minutes.
3) Rinse with water while gently massaging your skin.
I’m so used to products being overhyped that it’s always a bit surprising when a product actually does what it says it will. This mattifying mask did absorb the excess oil on my skin without stripping it or making my skin tight from dryness.
The ingredient list isn’t the cleanest, but the organic thyme is a nice addition.
