Multi-Masking at Bangalay Luxury Villas

Multi-Masking at Bangalay Luxury Villas

To celebrate the launch of the new Minenssey Clay Mask Exploration Set, we’ve partnered with luxury boutique resort, Bangalay Luxury Villas in Shoalhaven Heads, New South Wales. During September and October (while stocks last) guests will be gifted a Clay Mask Exploration Set in their villas. Immersed in the raw and verdant beauty of the Australian South Coast, Bangalay is the perfect spot to showcase Minenssey’s local botanical ingredients and allow guests to unwind and relax with an indulgent face mask.

The Clay Mask Exploration Set features each of the four mask varieties and is a convenient way to sample their varied activities. It’s also the perfect opportunity to try multi-masking. A technique where you apply different masks to alternative zones of the face, multi-masking allows you to target skincare concerns with specific ingredients. 

Skin Exploration Set

With the partnership beginning in September, I took the opportunity to escape from the grind (and our young families!) for some pampering and bonding time with my good friend and photographer, Alice Mahran.  

The villas at Bangalay are spacious and airy with gas fireplaces and large balconies that look out onto expansive native gardens. There’s a sparkling aquamarine pool, a quaint garden swing and an impressive restaurant that features an adventurous menu full of indigenous botanical ingredients.  

Over a glass of wine Alice and I sampled the Clay Mask Exploration Set and did some multi-masking of our own. The Deep Cleansing Mask is best applied to the T-Zone of the face, or wherever you experience excessive oil production. It contains green clay, parsley seed and pepperberry to draw out impurities, prevent breakouts and fight free radicals. 

Alice wanted to address some pigmentation she has on her cheeks so I recommended she apply the Rejuvenating Mask to the area – the blend of pink clay, Kakadu plum and pomegranate helps minimise pigmentation and create an enviable even-toned complexion

I was suffering from dry flaky skin, so I decided to combine the Hydrating Mask with a few drops of quenching Flannel Flower Absolute. This supercharges the mask with a double dose of moisturising Flannel Flower and helps skin retain hydration for hours to come.

The great thing about the Minenssey Clay Masks is that they don’t dry and crack so you can wear them comfortably for twenty minutes (ample time to get stuck into a good book – or in this case - a cheese board with a girlfriend). We removed the masks with a warm, damp face washer, which helps exfoliate the skin slightly, too. Cue beautiful, glowing skin. 

Demonstrating both brand’s respect for the local and the natural, the Minenssey x Bangalay collaboration is the ultimate way to experience multi-masking at one of New South Wales’ most tranquil locations.

How do we know if our skin is in good health? What even is good skin? How can we invite practices to support our relationship to our skin and cells, and in turn our relationship with our body? Always honest, we’re aware that skincare is an industry built on external ideas of achieving the illusion of perfect skin. In the eyes of the skincare industry, skin must be dewy yet malleable, able to support makeup yet acne free, sans wrinkles yet aged gracefully. It is an industry that invites speculation on what constitutes healthy skin, but not enough discussion and...

Why You Should Try Gua Sha Facial Massage

There are few things you can do at home that make as much difference to your skin – and your soul – as facial massage. It’s one of those totally under celebrated practices that people just forget to do. They’re too busy to carve out the extra few minutes in their routine, or maybe they’d rather leave it to their facialist, because, well, relaxation. However, a few minutes of self-care is not only distressing, there are actual tangible results to the skin.   We have over 40 muscles in the face, and stimulating them – with fingers, a jade roller, or...
