The Beauty Product from Another Country I’m Irrationally Obsessed With column features international beauty gems that cross my path about which I feel you, the reader, are on a need-to-know.
I feel the same way about foreign generic beauty items as I do about foreign men. By sheer virtue of the fact that they’re from another country, they thrill the shit out of me–even if the goods themselves are mediocre. To draw a hilarious but pretty effed-up parallel, throw me a man with a similar rating who’s from the States–or a Rite-Aid brand face wash–and I’m dry heaving.
With men, an exotic accent mixed with charming idioms can camouflage frighteningly well a lack of intellect, looks or even cultured sensibility. With products? Slap “revitalising” on the package copy and I’m straight-up enchanted by its replacement of my typical z, which, as you can imagine, makes me want to zzz.
Now to be fair, I haven’t tried the Tesco Instant Benefits Peel-off Mask, but Lynnie over at beaut.ie has and gives it a thumbs up, and I most certainly value her discerning opinion. Bonus? It’s only £1.10.
Have you tried this gem? Let me know in the comments.
