Erborian Milk & Peel Mask
[sample/affiliate] As soon as I saw this new offering from Erborian, I knew I’d love it. The ‘milk’ in question here is sesame milk although the softening effect comes from a ferment that gives a similar result to AHAs or lactic acid.
I’m not sure anyone saw this ‘milky’ micro trend coming (yesterday’s Clarins milky collection and no doubt more on the way) but I can’t say I’m complaining. So, it’s a quick five minutes for this mask that feels clay-ish in texture (softened greatly by sesame oil although it is predominantly kaolin) and unlike the ferocity of Kate Somerville’s Exfolikate you don’t feel any activity on the skin. However, when it comes to wash-off, you will see a smoothness and gleam that’s extremely pleasing. It had what I can only describe as a similar but more mild effect to a blur product – so a little bit matte but with the natural skin light bounce still in tact. I put Clarins Milky Boost over the top and could see a clear and positive difference between yesterday and today’s finished effect thanks to Milk & Peel.
As you can see, there’s also a cleansing balm that I haven’t tried yet but as soon as I do, I’ll report back. I wouldn’t waste the soft focus effects in the evening but instead use Milk & Peel as a speedy wake up mask in the morning when you can see the results. It’s wipe off with a warm cleansing cloth, by the way. It’s expensive at £35 especially as I could easily use this every morning due to its gentleness and good result and be through a tube in no time at all. You’re warned!
