I’M BACK! Hello internet friends I missed you all. Sorry I’ve been absent, I know I was planning on doing day to day posts but I ended up relaxing a bit too much… However an outfit diary is still definitely coming your way! If you want a sneak peak on what I was wearing then you can definitely have a peak at my instagram (if you’re on a social media spree then add me on snapchat – cfwood, and twitter too!) How is everyone? Lol I feel like I’ve missed out on so much haha even though it’s only been a week!
Anyway… here is another product that I bought recently when I really shouldn’t have… but oh well!
The reason why I’ve been picking up odds and ends despite my big haul is that my skin is really really not in a good way at the moment – it doesn’t seem to know what it’s doing. Part of it is lumpy, other bits are dry and peeling, I can’t find a foundation that doesn’t cling to my dry patches etc etc… its not fun! So I’ve changed up my skincare regime and am trying to get it back to normal. Hopefully I’ll be able to do an update skincare routine for you if it manages to sort itself out!
But anyway, the mask. I went into Lush to look for bathbombs, but on a whim took a look at the mask table. I had a bad experience with Lush masks a while ago, which is why I’ve avoided them for ages. There was one of their super helpful sales associates there though, so I explained what was going on with my skin.
She apparently had the same skin issues as me and this was the mask she picked out! It has lavender and honey, which both act as oil regulators, so they can help my skin balance itself. It also had almond shells in it (I think that’s what she said), which act as the all important exfoliators. Dry skin people, you know the exfoliating struggle! I was a little hesitant because I know some skins react badly with lavender, and mine is very sensitive, but I’m very glad I picked it up!
So, to the actual product. You keep it in the fridge, like all Lush masks, and it lasts 3 weeks, so its recommended to use this twice a week. The pot seems small, but there is a lot of product! I’ve used it more than 6 times I think though and still have one use left, so you do get a fair amount of product! You leave it for 5-10 mins, and then wash if off, whilst exfoliating.
This is honestly such a good mask. It is pretty pricey – 6.50, (considering my Quick Fix masks are only a fiver each and you get 10 uses in those) – but I still would re-buy this a million times over! After use, my skin pigmentation looks more even, my face feels unbelievably soft, and my dry patches are really reduced, as well as my skin in general looking and feeling less congested.
If you have combination skin, or skin that’s a bit off at the moment then I would highly recommend using this to try and bring it to heel!
What other Lush masks have you tried?
