Lush Face masks…I have heard so much about these face masks but I have never tried them.
I have to be honest here, the smell of Lush stores is too overpowering for me. It is just too strong for me personally. Some people like the smell but I just cannot handle it. For that reason alone, I have not tried many of their products. Even getting this face mask was difficult, I started to feel the back of my throat itch when I walked into the store. I react to things quite quickly, so it is probably just me.
I really wanted to try their face masks though, so I braved it and walked in.
There are several different types of face masks, so the sales assistant advised me based on my skin type to go for Brazened Honey.
What does Lush say about this face mask?
‘Wake up your skin with this fresh face mask containing fresh fennel, ginger root, parsley and coriander to detox and stimulate. We use a sage, rosemary and juniperberry infusion with cardamom and clove bud oils for their antiseptic qualities, fresh lime juice to cleanse the skin and free range eggs, honey and almond oil to soothe and moisturise. Smooth a generous layer of this mask onto your face and leave for 10 to 15 minutes.’
The smell of the face mask was strong but not overpowering and it was bearable. It felt cool and refreshing on my skin and was easy to apply. After a 15 mins I took off the mask and wow! My skin looked brighter and felt smoother. It really got rid of the dead skin on my face which makes can make my face look dull. I have this monster spot on my face and it helped to reduce the size of the beast and it was less sensitive to touch.
My only problem with this mask…well it is not really a problem but more of an inconvenience. Due to the use of fresh ingredients, it only lasts for around 3 weeks, and must be kept in the fridge. So if you are testing them out, I would advise you to get the smallest pot available, which is what I did. (I just realised that there is a date on the bottom which shows the expiry date!)
The smallest pot can do at least 5-6 face masks (depending on your application) over a period of two weeks which is not bad at all.
There are different types of face masks depending on your skin type and your skin concerns, so it is worth trying one out. Each of them have different ingredients which help tackle different skin concerns.
Here are the different varieties:
