This week, Weleda’s Iris Hydrating Masque has been a complete life saver. I should probably explain, having a beauty blog has a whole lot of pluses – I get to play around with wonderful products, and I love learning all about new products, but sometimes I come across products which have a less than great outcome. Case in point? The glycolic acid peel I was sampling last weekend. It was all good until Tuesday when, just before I was meant to head into a meeting, I realized my face had become super dry, and my skin started to look flakey. A quick pat of moisturizer and foundation was a quick fix, but when I got home, I knew I had to break out the big moisture guns.
After using a cleansing oil, to keep my skin as hydrated as possible I patted on a generous layer of the Weleda Iris Hydrating Masque and it was completely heavenly. The Masque has a lovely light, almost gel like texture and floral scent which my skin just sucked up. If you just need a quick shot of moisture, you can tissue your face after 10-15 minutes, but because my skin was so parched, I decided to just leave it on overnight.
I can’t even tell you what a difference the masque has made. Before using it, my skin felt super dry, tight and uncomfortable, and this really settles my skin, leaving it smooth and healthy feeling. It has completely healed my flaking skin, and I’ve been using it every night to keep everything calm and settled in light of my brush with facial acids.
The Iris Hydrating Masque costs £13.95 and is available here (UK) and here (US)
