Erborian Milk & Peel Mask

I am a huge fan of the brand Erborian and have featured them here on my blog many times, especially with the Ginseng range which I adore. Today it is the turn of the Milk & Peel Mask (priced at £34*) and from the description, I knew it was going to be something I really liked.
Erborian Milk & Peel Mask
The Milk & Peel Mask is described as being a "new skin" effect and a brighter complexion in just 5 minutes! The 'just 5 minutes' definitely capturing my attention. There are times when I don't have that spare hour to have a proper pampering session and there are times when I just want a quick fix, so I was intrigued to see just how well this worked.

Developed with nurturing plant-based ingredients, it is formulated using sesame milk which is known to visibly smooth skin's surface texture. There is also the inclusion of exfoliating enzymes which help to lift impurities away from the skin and rich hydrating fatty acids which leave the skin feeling soft and supple.

The mask is quite highly concentrated, so when using, you only need to apply a thin layer to the skin, avoiding both the lips and the eye area. Once on the skin, leave it for 5 minutes, which is ample time to make a cup of coffee and check your emails, once that time is up, the directions are to massage the face using wet hands and then in circular movements, then rinse off with water. One of the ingredients is Kaolin, so as the mask settles on the skin, it does have that clay-like feel to it, only not as hard owing to the sesame oil.  My skin reacts to most clay masks, so I wasn't too sure it would like this at all, but surprisingly, I had no flare-up, no itching and no redness at all.  

With all Erborian products, you have a whole list of ingredients which are amazing and the Milk & Peel Mask is no different. Alongside the 7 Herbs Complex, a regular feature in Erborian products which are known for their soothing properties and include the likes of Tiger Grass Extract, Green Tea Leaf Extract and Japanese Knotweed Extract, you will also find:
  • Sesame milk - Visibly smooth the skin and improve the quality of the skin texture, Improve the hydrated aspect of the skin
  • Sesame oil - Helps to nourish and soften the skin
  • Exfoliating enzyme - Resurfacing effect, Smooth the microrelief of the skin and Improve the skin’s texture
After using this mask there is a huge difference in the skin's texture. I was pleasantly surprised as to how smooth my skin was to the touch, especially on my cheeks which is where I suffer from some dryness and flaking skin.

At £34 it is on the expensive, but absolutely worth every penny and it is a lovely treat for just 5 minutes of your time and you only need to use it once, possibly twice a week!

  1. Ohh this looks wonderful, how insane is that packaging! I love their products, every one I've tried really delivers! x

  2. This sounds like something I’d really enjoy! X

  3. I like these kinds of things that only need to be on for about five minutes, as anything longer and I find I run out of time x

  4. This sounds amazing and taking only 5 minutes is an absolute bonus! I struggle the time to do anything so this fits well with trying to do a little self care

  5. I really love using products that improve my skin's texture, so i think I'd enjoy this after reading your review xx
