So I’m a Lush Cosmetics convert. I know I’m late to the party but better late than neverI guess. My mum suffers from severe migraines and one of her triggers is perfume / scents, so when I was younger we never had overly smelly products in the house. In my old local shopping centre, you could smell the Lush store from afar and every time we walked past I wanted to go in so much, but dreaded bringing anything home! I’ve just moved into a new flat and my skin has been very bad recently so I headed to Lush to get some bits, as I’d heard their face masks were amazing. And yes they bloody are! I purchased Catastrophe Cosmetic and Oatifix and I love them both.
What Lush says: A calming and moisturising fresh face mask packed with blueberries, calamine and chamomile, rose, and almond oils to soothe and soften the skin.
What I say: This is a fridge staple in my household. I’ve gone through two of these babies so far and I’m ready to purchase my third. It is 100% the face mask to use when your skin is in dire need of moisture and rejuvenation. I’d probably go as far as saying it’s the perfect quick fix for those days when you break out for lord knows what reason and need your face to look normal (actually way better than normal) instantly. And don’t get me started on how good it smells!
What Lush says: 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.
What I say: Oh so sticky, but oh so good. I wasn’t sure about this one when I first got it as it is a very odd consistency, it literally looks like porridge oats in a pot. But when I finally got round to putting it on, I was like “OK, I see where this is going”…
This face mask smells like breakfast heaven and although its a bit sticky and takes longer to clean off than other face masks on the market, I have never felt my skin so baby butt soft. I am a huge fan of this mask and I urge everyone to go out and buy it as it is just too good to keep to myself!
My next Lush adventure will be in the world of cleansers… to be continued my friends.
