Attack of the Beauty Masque
4/3/2009 3:01:00 PM

Ben is wonderful.  He is 4 ½ years-old, sweet and very funny.  He wants my attention always.  We have a snack and read a picture book.  Lately he is interested in the Greek myths.  Medusa, the 12 labors of Hercules.   It is easy to be fascinated with these stories.

To get a moment to myself I have a secret weapon so I don’t end up looking like Medusa: The Beauty Masque.

I choose Weleda’s Almond Facial Masque because it is soothing for sensitive skin.  My skin is blotchy and sometimes dry.  The masque is a beautiful saffron yellow color because of the carrot extract in it. The carotene in the carrot and natural plant ingredients is important to the health of skin.

I wash my face with Almond Cleansing Lotion then use the Wild Rose Facial Toner .  Then, I put the masque on.  It feels really great brushed on with a soft facial brush.

I’m doing this in the bathroom-and Ben hasn’t noticed my absence yet. He’s playing with his toys—knights and clashing swords.  Whenever I put this masque on he doesn’t want to come near me. “Take that beauty masque off!”, he screams.  An advantage when I want a little me time.

He doesn’t notice my bright yellow face as I sit on the couch and read a magazine.  Soon I hear “Mommy!?  Oh no you have a beauty masque on! You look like a monster!  Ewhhh!”.  I make like I am going to get him and he runs off,  back to his toys.

Ahhh…a few blessed moments to myself.  Eventually all good things come to an end.  I wash it off with warm water and a washcloth, pat dry and put some Wild Rose Moisture Cream on.  My face feels great. I had an oasis of peace in a busy day. Now back to the reality.
