Diary of a fashion intern: The mud mask

Fashion intern Diary
Arrived to work (late as usual) and noticed a brightly coloured pearlescent package on my desk, the envelope attached was addressed to me. Without hesitation, I tore open the package expecting find to something magnificent, to my despair I find 4 small mud masks samples. I slump down into my chair, open the envelope and let out sigh. Unbeknownst to me, I am going to be the guinea pig for these mud mask samples and I’m going to write about it so they’ll send us in more free stuff. My skin is as sensitive as the male ego, so I was more than hesitant to try them.  After a mediocre day in the office I arrive home and decide to try the mud mask sample that claims to banish lines and brighten one’s complexion, this little sachet promised quite a lot. So I go about my skincare routine and then I apply the mud, it smells fine, but it has chunks or tea leafs and mint in it, as it begins to dry I can feel my skin ‘tingle’ which is a nice way of saying burn horribly. I fan my face and wait for the 12 minutes to finish up. The next morning I notice I have some divine blotches on my cheeks, forehead and jawline, just what any gal wants on a Thursday morning. Throughout the work day I feel spots growing on my face, I haven’t gotten spots on my cheeks/forehead since I was about 16, I knew instantly the mud was the culprit.  All day in work I could feel peoples eyes on me, judging my now ruined face. How could my pores betray me? Did they absorb the mud? Am I a human sponge? I ponder these questions as I go about my ‘coffee run’ AKA standing behind the carpark where I chain smoke in secret. I go back to my desk and write a scathing review of this so-called miracle mud. I wanted people to know that this €100 product is a sham. In the conclusion of my review I simply say ‘This product absolutely destroyed my skin, I’m going to look awful for over a fortnight. 10/10 would recommend to a friend that’s hotter than me.’    Image: Pinterest
