Why I love: Aspect's pretty amazing Fruit Enzyme Mask

Beauty writers/editors always rave on about the perils of dull winter skin, but in my humble opinion it can be just as bad – if not worse – in summer. I find it is mainly down to a hell of a lot of reapplication of sunscreen (a good thing) as well as using dry shampoos and the like on your hair that can have a trickle down effect on the skin making it a little more congested than usual. Add in the humidity and oil production in overdrive and BAM – lacklustre summer skin at its worst.
This means that regular exfoliation is key – like once a week religiously, rather than overdoing it and aggravating an already touchy situation. Finding the right product is key too, and I’m very picky when it comes to that.
I’m not a huge fan of harsh, granular manual exfoliation due to the stresses it can put my often-sensitive skin under, but love using a great enzymatic-style exfoliator that gobbles up dead skin cells like Pac Man for an instant glow when and where I need it.
High performance but super lightweight to use, Aspect’s Fruit Enzyme Mask one I have tried and become a huge fan of. Not only does it smell bloody lovely, but it’s a power packed, potent antioxidant-rich exfoliation mask that has been carefully formulated to gently digest and eliminate dead skin build up without irritating or harming sensitive – and even post-procedure - skin.
The blend of powerful antioxidants in the delicious formula include Coffee, Green Tea, Pomegranate and Acai Berry, all of which are beauty “buzz” ingredients with very good reason. Also in the “plus” column, Aspect Fruit Enzyme Mask is free of pesticides, parabens, perfumes or dyes so you know it isn’t bringing any nasties along with the good stuff.
I’ve been using it once a week for a few minutes at a time, applying it sparingly and then gently rolling it in using circular movements with my fingertips and so far, so awesome. It’s so gentle that it can be used post peel and post all in-clinic procedures to address flaking skin, and the calming, soothing and hydrating properties mean that it heals as well as gently sloughs off all in its path. You can massage it in and leave it on for anywhere between 10 – 15 minutes depending on your skin type – I usually go for the former and have nothing but amazing results. The Best Enzymatic Exfoliator on the market in my humble opinion – and that is no small call!
