Multi-Masking: Two (or three) is better than one

multi-masking face masks

Face masks and I are good friends. Rather, I have a problem and keep buying more and more! But, shopaholic tendancies aside, I find them so effective and in my ever increasing arsenal I've got something to treat pretty much anything that my skin throws at me. Sometimes though, I like to indulge in a little mask mixology and treat myself to a home spa-like facial. Because why the hell not?

I approach this very much like a facalist would, really looking at my skin and seeing what it needs; is it dry, maybe a bit dull or reactive? The autumn weather and central heating has been taking its toll and my skin is feeling quite sensitive as it's breaking out, while also being quite dehydrated and dull at the moment. So once a week I've been pulling out all the stops and going to town with this little trio of goodness.

To slough away dead skin and brighten my complexion I've been keeping away from manual exfoliators and opting for the gorgeous Elemis Papayza Enzyme Peel to prep my skin and allow everything that follows to really penetrate and get to work. It's a comforting cream mask that's nourishing in its own right and I always have this in my bathroom. As my skin is feeling a bit sore this is the perfect way to exfoliate and resurface without causing any damage or trama.

For a gentle cleanse and to unclog pores and heal blemishes I've been reaching for the Aesop Parsley Seed Cleansing Masque. I wouldn't say I love this, it does the job but I don't find it as life changing as most people do. I've been using this more frequently lately as my all time favourite Antipodes Aura Honey Mask is all used up so I'm going to see how I get on with this Aesop number. It's a clay mask but I don't find it makes my skin feel tight or breakout, but it definitely helps heal those little boo-boos and provide a great base for some hydration to sort things out.

The pi├Ęce de r├ęsistance has got to be the Aurelia Cell Revitalise Rose Mask. Seriously pricey but seriously dreamy, this rose infused pot of loveliness delivers so much hydration to my skin. It's packed with probiotics, peptides and omegas and after rinsing off my skin feels absolutely awesome. I find it super soothing and my skin has much more life in it afterwards. Fine lines are plumped and I look less like a corpse. Rose is one of my favourite scents so the hint of damask rose goes down a treat. It's pure luxury but also extremely effective. The Aurelia Cell Revitalise Rose Mask is the first product I've tried from the brand so there may be more going on my christmas list!

Have you tried multi-masking and if so what are your favourite combos?
