Someone passed me these facial herbal compresses recently. I’d tried them before, having bought a few when I was in Bangkok. They work great for facial massage and are best used as spot treatments for cystic acne. Although the compress does not get rid of the acne, it helps the skin clear out the pimple faster when used regularly enough.

Test the compress before using

These compresses are very easy to use. I think they can be microwaved but I prefer to soak them in hot water. In fact, the instructions is to leave the compress in hot water for 5 minutes before using it on your face. To ensure the compress is suitable, it’s best to test it on your neck before using the compress over your face. The temperature should be warm, but not uncomfortable to hold against your skin.

MVO Paper Box Packaging Marie Veronique Organics Desert Island Duet in boxes
My new order for the Marie Veronique Organics MVO Desert Island Duet just came in and I was so surprised that the two products came individually packed in a box! Check them out! I know the brand made some adjustment to the names of their products like the Marie Veronique Organics Moisturizing Face Screen SPF30 is now MVO Everyday Coverage SPF30. But packaging too? I’m guessing it is a new positioning they’re adopting to make their brand more premium, especially given the fact that they now have a store front at Mill Valley and their products are being carried in some spas.
