Lush Fresh Face Masks review!
Hey guys so this blog will be about Lush Face Masks. I have tried most of them, but some i haven’t because the scent wasn’t to my liking (scents are where I’m most picky).
Lush fresh face masks are made fresh, like literally fresh. The mashup the ingredients and pot them all in a pot. No artificial anything. And they are made in small batches to ensure freshness. They will only last for 3-4 weeks and you will need to keep them in the fridge to keep them fresh, just like food!
I love these fresh masks so damn much. Really, they are not like any other mass produced face masks at all. These, you can really feel the texture and smell of the ingredients. And when I wash them off, I can really feel the difference.
Before we go on, I also have another blogpost on my Lush hair and body products, so you can check that out as well on the link below.
Oh and the best bit? You can bring 5 empty Lush pots to exchange for a Fresh face mask, because Lush in probably the most environmental friendly in the word. I always go through my hair masks pretty quickly, and so it’s so much fun to experiment with these fresh face masks when I go exchange the pots.
And over the years, I’ve found a favourite: BB Seaweed.
I first tried BB Seaweed when I was studying in the UK, and I wanted something to calm my skin. I went into the Lush shop and tried different masks until I landed with this. Mostly I made my decision on the scent lol.
But when I got home and used it for the first time, I was immediately hooked.
Here’s Lush’s description of this mask: This gentle seaweed softener wants to cherish your skin with protective honey and Fair Trade organic aloe vera. Sail away on waves of refreshing and regenerative rosemary oil. Kaolin will cleanse the skin as millet flakes gently exfoliate. Adorn your face with a layer of this calming rose petal and toothed wrack seaweed mask, then put your feet up for 10 minutes before gently rinsing away.
Here’s the amount that I layer on. It might look flaky on my face, but it feels amazing! Don’t worry about the ingredients falling apart, they won’t.
And here’s a photo of it after it’s “dried”. It doesn’t really dry down at all, my face still feels amazing before I wash this off. I didn’t wanna wash it off at all haha.
I suggest using a wet tissue to wipe off the chunky parts first, in case you want to prevent the drain from clogging. But if your drain is wonder woman, then you can just wash it off like a normal face mask. It might take a bit of effort, but while I wash mine off, it feels like in massaging cream into my face. And it feels great even while I’m washing it off!
OK next is a mask so colorful I wanna eat it already. Don’t Look At Me is a “new” mask which means it was recently introduced.
This mask is super softening, and exfoliating at the same time. It soothes my skin while I put it on, and the scent is super relaxing at the same time too. It’s like doing a spa at home.
And when I wash it off, the grounded rice in there gently exfoliates. it’s such a multi benefit product.
Here’s the description from Lush: Well, hello, don't be shy. I caught you looking at my rich, exfoliating texture, filled with nourishing murumuru butter. I saw you checking out my ground rice. Let me assure you that I'm all substance: they've packed me full of zingy lemon juice to tone your complexion, Tunisian neroli to brighten and organic silken tofu to soften you up in all the right ways. A dash of rice syrup and grapefruit oil will have you coming back for more of my scrubby, softening skincare goodness. Smooth a rich layer of this vibrant blue mask over the skin and allow it to sink in for 10-15 minutes before gently removing with fresh water.
Here’s a closeup. See the rice bits?
Next is a relatively new face mask as well, which was introduced exactly when I was studying in the UK, so of course I had to try it.
It’s pink and called Rosy Cheeks. Who wouldn’t wanna try it?
Here’s the description: Find the happiness you seek by cleansing cheek to cheek with this gorgeously soothing fresh mask. A simple blend of kaolin, calamine and Turkish rose oil to delicately calm the skin and restore balance. Whether you're feeling hot and bothered or just fancy showering your complexion with roses, cleansing calamine and kaolin will gently remove dirt while exquisite rose oil nourishes and tones your face. Smooth a generous layer of this mask over your skin and relax for 10-15 minutes, allowing the ingredients to get to work, before rinsing. Uncover calm, matte skin which says you've been kissed by a rose.
As seen in the description, this is a cleansing mask. This mask dries down, so I wash it off immediately after it dries, or else my skin gets itchy. I like the scent of the calamine and rose oil. I have not used this recently, because my skin has gotten drier as of late, and this mask is a little drying.
Want to guess what the next mask is made of? It’s called Cupcake. So it should be made from dessert right? Well the mask is named Cupcake, but is actually made from coffee!
Here’s the description: Rhassoul mud, which is highly absorbent, works with cocoa powder to draw out all the dirt and impurities and give a deep cleanse. Fresh mint stimulates and tones the skin, whilst linseed and cocoa butter soften and moisturise. Smooth a generous layer of this mask onto your face and leave for 10 to 15 minutes.
I do not drink coffee (or tea or soft drinks or anything but water), but I love this mask. I think this is a more moisturising alternative to generic clay masks.
Most clay masks dry down and if you leave them on for too long, they suck out all the moisture on my skin. For this mask, I don’t have that problem. Linseed and cocoa butter helps add moisture to this mask.
Another factor that I love is the mint! I love everything minty and I love the cooling sensation this mask gives. It’s such a relaxing feeling. If you love coffee, you need to try out this mask!
Next is Catasptophe Cosmetic. The name may sound scary, but its actually very gentle and soothing. It also protects skin from damage. It protects skin from catastrophes that result from the use of cosmetics I guess?
Here’s the official description: A calming and moisturising fresh face mask packed with blueberries, calamine and chamomile, rose, and almond oils to soothe and soften the skin. We use wholesome blueberries as they are rich in vitamins and minerals, including the antioxidant vitamins A, C, and E that help to protect the skin from damage. Smooth a generous layer of this mask onto clean skin and leave for 10 to 15 minutes.
The mask looks greyish blue, from the blueberries!
Now this is a mask I have not tried, because I can’t stand the smell of ginger.
Here’s the description: 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.
Seriously the mask is yellow from the ginger and parsley. The ingredients are so beneficial to skin, too bad I can’t stand the small.
If you hate ginger or coriander, stay away!
Next is also another mask I have yet to try. Why? Because of the scent again. This one has garlic. And although I love eating garlic in my dishes, I don’t particularly like them splattered all over my face. If not for the garlic, I would have loved this mask: its cooling, its got tea tree, and honey. If you can stand the garlic scent, you should check out this mask.
Here’s the description: Fighting for clear, pacified skin? Cooling, fresh green grapes set the rhythm, while a battle cry of garlic, kaolin and antibacterial tea tree calms and cleanses. Smooth on a generous layer and sit back for 10 minutes as free range eggs and delightfully moisturising honey get to work. Then simply rinse away with warm water.
Next is Oatflix: This one is all bananas and almonds and oatmeal! I have not tried this but seriously, is sounds good enough to eat!
Here’s the official description: This gentle, nourishing mask is made with fresh bananas and illipe butter to moisturise dry skin. Oatmeal, ground almonds and kaolin work together in a mildly exfoliating base to eradicate dead skin, leaving you soft, supple and moisturised. Smooth a generous layer of this mask onto your face and leave for 10 to 15 minutes and let the ingredients get to work before washing off gently with warm water.
It does look like Oatmeal right?
So that’s it for my blog on Lush Face masks. I hope you enjoyed it!
