If you're not too familiar with the brand Lush it's a handmade cosmetic company headquartered in the UK that produces and sells a variety of products made from fresh organic ingredients, and that do not test or buy from companies that test on animals. It's a great brand with some great ideas and although I avoided the shop for a long time due to the intense smell that usually emanates within a 5 metre radius of the shop, I'm so glad I finally bit the bullet a little while ago and ventured inside!
As you can see in the photos above, the ingredients really are fresh. Each batch comes with a sticker for when it was packaged (and by whom, how cute!), and for when the product will expire. Because the ingredients in these masks are of a nature to expire quite quickly (fresh organic eggs for example) the masks have to be kept in the fridge and do have a bit of a short expiry date, but it just gives you more of a reason to be treating your skin on an even more regular basis like it deserves.
This mask is described by Lush as "A superhero face mask to combat spots, cleanse dirt, calm and soothe all troubled skins. " I have previously tried the brazened honey mask which has a bit better smell than this mask as this one contains more potent ingredients like garlic and tea tree oil to help soothe troubled skin, but once it's on your face it's nothing noticeable at all.
You apply a fairly thick layer of the mask and it dries within 5 - 10 minutes, then rinse clean with warm water leaving a fresh smooth surface. I'm not particularly prone to acne, but I do have a few spots here and there, and this mask does soothe my skin like it describes. It's not drying at all which I love, and my skin looks instantly brighter and more energised once I'm done with the mask.
For me not being too prone to acne I don't know that I would use this particular mask again, but I would definitely recommend it for anyone who does suffer these issues. Your face will love it! I did see benefits from this mask even though my skin is pretty clear though so give it a try if you like how it sounds and see how you like it. :)
