This week I try …a butt mask

The lowdown Aceology’s Cheeky Butt Mask Trio had me intriguedenough to do my own test drive at home. First time ever, as I usually prefer to have all the work done for me. There are three varieties in the pack: one hydrates, one firms, and the third soothes. I start with the Juicy Peach Butt Mask, the hydrating one. First I shower, then towel myself dry, then pop a gold patterned sheet mask on each cheek. Lying on the bed face down, I read for 20 minutes before taking the mask off and massaging the remaining serum into my legs and stomach.

These masks have hyaluronic acid and allantoin to help improve circulation, and my butt is now soft and smooth.

Can’t wait to try out the other two: the Bouncy Butt Mask, with peptides and soybean extract to firm, and the Smooth Operator Butt Mask, with liquorice extract, rosemary and centella to soothe and reduce redness. That’s every angle covered!

Pain factor Zero.

Post-shower, work these glimmering wonders over the spotsyou want to highlight. Tom Ford gives us a platinum shimmer in a citrus-floral-muskoil, Salt is all bronze and jasmine, and Chanel’s oil is a smoothing, citrusy affair.

Ask Stephanie

How do I apply face toner?
After washing your face, soak a cotton pad in toner, then swipe it over your face, neck and chest(use your hands if you want to avoid cotton pads). Follow that by applying your favourite serum and moisturiser. Try Kiehl’s Calendula Herbal Extract Alcohol Free Toner (, $58).
