Green Mile

I hope you all had a great Christmas! What did everyone get? Good stuff?

My Christmas was pretty relaxing. Except an afternoon with relatives, I've been either just at the park or at home. During this two-week holiday, I am determined to make a dent in The Wings of the Dove, and enjoy the gym.

My search for the paraben-free, 100% natural mask finally led me to Jeanne Piaubert (Paris)'s Green Paradise Gentle Facial Mask. The 50ml handy tube contains a white cream that spreads easily onto the skin, and slowly becomes absorbed over the course of 10 minutes. Just rinse or wipe off afterwards.

Now, the truth is my skin type doesn't need masks. But I thought I would enjoy a true chemical-free moment with this product. With a wealth of essential oils, my skin feels baby-soft after the treatment. I recommend this to someone who has normal to combination skin.

I tried a few samples from Jeanne Piaubert's other lines, but they are not worth the trouble.

Thank you for reviewing a paraben-free product. I like that cosmetics companies are more into paraben-free production. 'Green' products are wonderful as well. I would be a bit scared of some essential oils, though, as they can be a bit harsh on some sensitive skins (like mine)

Oh,btw...I mailed out your Nix'ie today :D

Oh wow, that mask sounds really good. I can't wait for my Blue corn mask from the Body shop to finish before I invest in something new. This is on the list now.

I love organic and natural products. But when I use 100% natural ones, my face doesn't seem to like it too much. I still want to try them though haha.

You don't need masks?! I'm so jealous! My skin loves them and craves them.

I love finding new beauty products that are more natural! My favorite products I received for Christmas were from Garden Girl (I got the Chill Out lotion and body wash). Everything is free of parabens, sulfates, phthalates and petroleum products. Plus the packaging is adorable and they smell incredible!
