Helloooo lovelies! ❤️
Sorry for the late post! I’ve been so busy trying to get my life together these past couple of weeks (the stresses of final year and trying to still have a social life haha)! 😩
Anyway. Hope you’re all doing awesome. Who’s excited for christmas?! I hope we have a white one this year! 😍❄️
Today, I wanted to do a quick review on some Lush face masks I have been using these past two weeks or so!
Some of you will know how much I ADORE Lush face masks 😍 they feel so luxurious on the face, not to mention they smell amazing (catastrophe cosmetic, cupcake & oatfix just to name a few!). They are perfect for a girly night in ❤️
The two masks I have been using these past few weeks are ‘Catastrophe Cosmetic’ and ‘Don’t look at me’.
Let’s start with ‘Don’t look at me’!
This is a vivid blue gloop that is hard to miss! I loved the smell of this mask. It was a very citrussy, zingy smell (due to the fresh lemon juice inside 🍋) and left me feeling so refreshed! Other ingredients include Kaolin Clay to draw out impurities, ground rice which is the PERFECT exfoliator for me in terms of how gentle yet effective it is, and murumuru butter to moisturise!
This is quite an easy mask to apply unlike some masks from Lush (Achem oatfix) and left me looking like a smurf! Safe to say I scared a few people whilst walking around with this on 😂. I left this on for about 15 mins and it does tighten ever so slightly due to the kaolin clay. When I went to wash it off, I scrubbed gently in circular motions to help exfoliate my skin.
This mask left my face looking so BRIGHT and GLOWY! 😍 I love the fact it’s a mask and scrub all in one!
However, one thing I was a bit disappointed by was the fact it didn’t help much with marks and scars. I would have expected the lemon juice to help slightly. But that doesn’t mean I wouldn’t use it again! I think a longer use would help with any scarring. 😊 I would definitely buy this mask again! Fun to use with effective results! ❤️
The next mask I purchased was ‘Catastrophe Cosmetic’ (possibly my all time favourite after Brazened Honey!).
First of all, let’s talk about the scent! THIS IS AMAZING! It smells of fresh blueberries with a slight powdery scent! Love love love ❤️❤️❤️
This mask contains fresh blueberries and chamomile blue oil which are packed with anti-oxidants to calm and heal the skin, perfect for them pesky breakouts and sensitive skin!
This is also a blue coloured mask, albeit not as vivid as the previous mask mentioned 😂
This is quite a thick mask and is a tiny more difficult to apply than don’t look at me. I left it on till it started to crumble slightly (it can get very crumbly if you leave it on too long).
When I went to wash this off, I noticed that it wasn’t much of an exfoliator but that didn’t bother me. This feels like VELVET when you wash it off 😍😍 so powdery and smooth (a bit messy though).
I noticed that after washing, my face looked very even toned and any redness I had around the t-zone was gone! So this mask does work! I felt refreshed and calm 💪
One thing I HATE about the fresh face masks are the expiry dates! I had to use both these masks within 2 weeks so I would recommend applying a very generous amount (they seem to take ages to finish which doesn’t help haha!), but I understand that they are freshly made. Better safe than sorry.
I would highly recommend these masks to everyone! They have something for all skin types! They would also be perfect for a girls night in! 😍 so luxurious and they smell amazing! *squeals*
I hope you enjoyed this review! If anyone has some other fresh face mask recommendations, please let me know! I’d love to try them out!
Hope you all have a lovely day! Love you guys!
