REVIEW: Aseop Parsley Seed Cleansing Mask

Brand: Aseop

What is it? A clay based deep cleansing mask. It extracts impurities that are clogging pores.

Skin type: Most skin types, especially dry and sensitive.

How to use: Use twice weekly and wash with warm water after 15 minutes; that’s taken from the Aseop website. I cleanse my hands and face before use with micellar water. Then apply a light layer all over face and neck. I tend to keep it in a little over 15 minutes.

Ingredients: Water, Kaolin, Aloe Barbadnesis Leaf Juice, Bentonite, Alcohol Denat, Gylcerin, Lavandula Angustifolia (lavendar) Oil, Oenothera Biennis  (evening primrose) Oil, Rosa Canine Fruit Oil, Phenoxyethanol, Ormenis Multicaulis Oil, Carum Petroselinum  (parsley) Seed Oil, Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Methylisethiazolinone, Linalool.


How does it smell? Very strongly of lavender in the tube. Once Applied to the face I got a strong blackjack (the sweet) scent.

How does it feel? My skin felt remarkably soft and smooth after I washed it off. I was left with skin that felt and looked clean, aswell as a little matte. Great for summer when sweating clogs up your pores leaving you with oily skin.

Costs: £30 for 2.4 Oz which is quite alot of product.

Tested on Animal? No. It is also vegan friendly.

How long did I test for? 2 weeks, so 4 uses. My skin felt exactly the same after every use.

What I like about it: It left my skin feeling matte instead of greasy, which when you have dry skin seems to be a reoccurring issue with products for this skin type. This is what gave me a clean feel especially in hot summer days.

What I disliked: Nothing.  It does exactly what I wanted it to.

Would I repurchase/recommend: 100%

Avaliable at: Aseop counters at Selfridges and Liberty of London.
