Mid November favourites – Caudalie detox face mask and yellow diamonds

I really felt like writing a weather appropriate post, especially as it would clearly be too late to do that at the end of November, when everyone is in festive spirit,munching on mince pies and devouring mulled wine. I clearly cannot wait.

For quite a few months I’ve been using a face mask by Caudalie, in fact the detox mask and without noticing, it’s actually extremely good. I like the packaging, particularly the lovely wooden cork and I’m very much fond of the idea that it’s very easy to use – just apply for the face for 5-10 minutes and the clay drying on your face will notify once it’s time to wash it off. The mask looks a little pinkish red, so before drying off one might look slightly sunburnt.  

The mask is enriched with grape marc (solid remains of grape, includes skins, pulp, seeds and stems if you didn’t know) to detoxify, pink clay and coffee to clarify, and papaya enzymes for a boost of immediate radiance. One thing I can say with certainty is that I feel the mask pull all the crap off my face and leave it nice and silky. Quick detox option on a rainy day and I can imagine it being handy during the festive period.  

Detox face mask can only be accompanied with a good book and Andrew Martin’s The Yellow Diamond is just that. Set in Mayfair, my favourite part of London, this crime story takes the reader through the beautiful streets, cafes, bars and restaurants of Mayfair, whilst investigating a crime related to a yellow diamond. The protagonist is DI Blake Reynolds, a northerner, who has taken over from a Mayfair resident George Quinn, who has fallen under an attack himself. One of those books you don’t want to put down before it’s finished.

All the above should be accompanied with a cup of tea or glass of wine, depending on preferences.

      This mask has the scent of lavender, which I find really calming and don’t mind in large quantities. Last time I put the mask on and had a bath with lavender essential oil at the same time and it was fabulous, very calming. However, it’s quite individual and if one is not a fan of lavender then obviously it won’t work 🙂
