Ah, finally a Wine to pair with my mask this Wednesday - this week's pairing is featuring "Apples"!
Here is my Mask of the Week:
The Face Shop Character Mask - Monkey "Soothing" ~ $4.00. This moisturizing soothing character mask moisturizes and soothes the irritated skin with apple extract rich in moisture and vitamins. Dermatologist Tested & Formula without 6 additives (Sulfate, Talc, Mineral oil, Quarternium, Polyacrylamide, Paraffin)
Oh you guys know my love of crazy masks - these character masks are always hilarious/scary to wear! I love them!
I am generally pretty happy with the masks I get from TheFaceShop - I love that this company is really making k-beauty accessible in malls and they are very well priced.
This mask is used like all other sheet masks - wash face, apply toner, apply mask and leave on for 15-20 minutes, remove mask and pat remaining essence in to skin.
Oh this mask is so cute and weird all at the same time! It came with a good amount of essence and adhered well to my face. I thought the fit was pretty good, but it was a little loose around my chin. This mask lasted about 30 minutes on me and had a faint apple smell, which I thought was great! It did make my skin feel super smooth and soft after and it was perfect - I was in need of a soothing mask tonight!
And, here is the wine I paired my mask with:
Dirty Laundry "Hush" Rose ~ $20.99. Red apple & watermelon on the nose, with a hint of strawberry on the palate.
This wine is a blend of Pinot Noir, Merlot and Cab Franc making it on the deeper and dryer end of roses - but it does still finish with a light, crisp fruit note! This wine is delicious! I love the lightness, but full bodied flavour of this wine! It is a beautiful bright, almost coral colour wine and I call this a must-try!
This wine suggests paring it with bold Asian or Indian flavor dishes - it would absolutely stand up to bold flavors. I also thought it paired nicely with bachelorette watching and mask night, so a wine that can do both is great!
Also, Dirty Laundry is one of my favourite vineyards to go to in Summerland, B.C. They really make their wine tasting a whole experience and have a lot of fun with it! The property is beautiful and if you are making any stops on the Bottleneck Drive wine tour, make sure to go here!
