I don’t know about you, but summer is not an easy

I don’t know about you, but summer is not an easy, breezy season for my skin. The moment the temp hits 80 here in NYC, you can give up all hope of staying small-pored and matte-finished.  Dirt and grime positively rise from the streets and embrace yo face.           With this lovely scenario in mind, I present the SUMMER 14 CULT MASK SERIES … a rundown of 5 fresh-making, dirt-sucking genius products you’ve (probably) never heard of. Today we start with this organic apricot mask from cult Hungarian brand ilike.                  Ilike is actually a person, an auntie to be exact (known as “Aunt Ilcsi” - I love her already) who began making natural skincare from Hungary’s abundance of healing herbs in the 50’s. This small batch product is made from organically grown, handpicked herbs and fruit, and it shows.  The mask is a completely unique formula that feels like apricot pudding.  Slather it on, try hard not to lick yourself, and 20 minutes later you’ll emerge soft, smooth and radiant. This mask is ideal for combination skin and is great for any time you want a refresh. It pairs particularly well with a pre-party bellini.
