CHANEL COCO ROUGE SHINE

As April approaches, I thought I'd give my makeup collection a streamline clean in time for the spring sunshine. As I did so, I happily unearthed last summer's favourite; Chanel's Coco Rouge Shine Lipstick (£25) in Interlude. This peachy lip shine product delivers a glossy, coral pigment in a super hydrating balm formula that makes for a dreamy, addictive application. It's infinitely wearable and looks glorious on sun-kissed skin, and need I mention the beautiful classic black and gold packaging? 
Spring's lip service is served. 

Have you tried the Coco Rouge Shine lipsticks?

AĒSOP PARSLEY SEED CLEANSING MASQUE

A few weeks ago I snapped up the ever coveted Aēsop Parsley Seed Cleansing Masque (£27) and my skin is nothing short of in love, this game changer has worked wonders on my congested complexion.

The clay based, parsley-packed masque is my first foray into Aesop's superlative skincare collection and I'm certainly a fan. It acts as a deep-cleansing treatment that's designed to extract impurities that clog the pores. On my mug in particular, blackheads are a consistent problem and so I was peachy keen to slap this on and sample its claims. 

A slinky thin veil over the face and neck is all you need before the watery beige cream gets to work. Fifteen minutes in, the masque is ripe, tight and ready to remove with a hot cloth. If you look closely at your skin just before hitting the flannel, you can actually see all the little dots of grime and pollutants that the masque has sucked up and eradicated (totally gross but fascinating). 

Post masque, my face feels cleansed and revitalised whilst the surface of my skin is soft and smooth. I noticed a real difference when I went to apply my makeup the next morning too which looked über fresh as a result. 

The product is intended for use twice a week and works on most skin types but isn't recommended for sensitive faces, so just be aware. The toothpaste-esque tube will last for ages too as I find a little goes a very long way. I for one am all for the parsley seed goodness and can't enough.

Have you tried this masque... if so what were your thoughts?
