Review: Aveda Wedding Masque
I'm not getting married in the morning, but ding dong I want my skin to shine.
Cue the new launch from Aveda, an overnight Wedding Masque (£48.00 aveda.co.uk / $65.00 aveda.com) designed to bless you with the kind of luminous skin you'd kill for on your wedding day. It claims to not only provide instant radiance but give you brighter, firmer and more-even toned skin over time.
The Wedding Masque is part of the Tulasāra™ collection. Meaning 'moving toward balance' in Sanskrit, the Tulasāra collection is a range of advanced performance skincare products and tools designed to help accelerate the skin’s natural ability to restore itself.
The new Wedding Masque drew inspiration from the Indian Haldi ceremony - a pre-wedding tradition in which a homemade turmeric paste is applied to the bride and groom for glowing skin on their wedding day. However to create a more powerful skin saviour, Aveda added tomato, potato and red raspberry plant stem cells and organic apricot seed oil into the mix.
The mask has a rich, creamy consistency that applies to the skin like a moisturiser. Only a small amount of product is needed to cover the entire face and neck and the skin absorbs enough product to prevent it transferring onto your pillow as you sleep.
Unlike some other overnight masks I've used previously, the Aveda Wedding Masque doesn't leave any residue on the skin the next morning and, as a result, doesn't need to be removed. You simply cleanse the skin just as you would every morning.
What's left is healthier, more radiant looking skin. After using the mask 3-4 times a week for the past month, I've noticed a great improvement in my skin tone. Tiny red marks (left over from various past breakouts) have gone or significantly reduced and dry patches - that would fuck-up my foundation game - gone. I'm hooked.
