Keep your skin looking fresh and clean with an exfoliating mask

(Dr Sebagh)

Loved by beauty insiders and celebrities such as Elle Macpherson and Anna Friel, Dr Sebagh’s award-winning deep exfoliating mask (£59) is a red-carpet treatment for your skin. Containing a potent blend of lactic acid and azelaic acid, this powerful exfoliant removes impurities and surface dead skin cells that dull the complexion, thereby increasing radiance. Lactic acid has been selected for its powerful exfoliating benefits, removing impurities and waste products from the skin. The antibacterial properties of azelaic acid can stop the development of germs and pigmentation, while peptides from the silicium derivative can help plump up skin. Dr Sebagh also has a deep exfoliating mask for sensitive skin and both masks should be applied once or twice weekly. Save 20 per cent when you shop #boxfree online at, using the code “DeepEx20”.
