I've just finished one tub. It works a little bit, calm down my acnes on cheek, faded my acne scar,instantly smooth after first apply. However, it only last for 2 weeks, I keep in the fridge at third week , it smells really weird like egg mask. Even it works a little but it's too pricey for 2 week usage.only calm down my acnes but it won't cure it until disappear. I won't repurchase this mask


Fragrances -LUSH -Breath of God

on 11/18/2017 8:48:00 PM

This is a perfume that will depend heavily on personal tolerance/preference, and on the way it works with your body chemistry. I do not enjoy smelling like a campfire, which is what this smells like on me. It never mellowed out the way it seems to for other reviewers, and it really only ever smelled like campfire with a faint note of powdery old lady perfume. I never got any citrus, vetiver, pepper, floral. After an hour of suffering and forcing my brother to smell it on my wrist ("Isn't this gross? No, smell it, really, isn't it?") I gave up and tried to wash it off. Operative word: tried. This one is a nasty lingerer!

Lotions/ Creams -LUSH -Sleepy Hand and Body Lotion

Smells incredible, easily one of my fav Lush scents. I love to apply this before bed, this lotion is very moisturizing, leaves my skin feeling very soft by morning. It absorbs well enough that my skin is not left feeling tacky. Does not seem to cause any body breakouts. Would certainly repurchase.

I have super sensitive skin that reacts and turns red and hot from most cleansers. The Lush SA recommended this to me and demonstrated it on the back of my hand in the store. It's a weird product. I'm glad I bought a small tub. Its sticky and thick and waxy. My skin doesn't react to the ingredients in the product itself but the process of wiping it off with a warm to hot washcloth does aggravate my skin. I've been using this as the first step in a two part cleansing routine. I rub this on my face and eyes to break up my makeup and then I was it all off using Cerave foaming cleanser. I'm just using it this way to use it all up, it was expensive and I won't purchase again when it's gone.

Masks -LUSH -Mask of Magnaminty

I never used to suffer from acne breakouts before. However, the past month and a half I have been battling breakouts (comedones, cystic acne and blackheads) in my T-zone like never before.

Did this mask solve the problem and clear my acne? No. Acne treatments including antibiotics, benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid are mainly to thank for the healing of it.

HOWEVER, I am continuously enjoying and using this mask. It comes at a very good price considering the amount (a small pot of 125g came at approx 7 euros here in Spain) and has lasted me more than 2,5 weeks with more than half of it left.

I find myself using it almost every night, focussing mainly on my T-zone. The reason for this continued use is the calming effect it has had on my skin. Inflamed acne along with harsh acne treatments turn your skin into a sensitive mess and the peppermint in the mask appears to help in decreasing the inflammation in the spots.

It feels fresh and makes your skin feel clear, there are no miracle products but this is a cheap, calming and fresh addition in your cleansing routine, should you be looking for one.

TIP: I found the ingredients to act better when applied onto dampened skin, rather than a patted dry skin.

I bought this for the times when i need to relax and when i'm stressed out. It's the first face mask i have ever bought. My skin isn't really acne prone but with this mask, while it left my skin feeling clean and soft, within 5 minutes I already felt bumps on skin, which later turned into pimples. I tried the mask a second time just to see if it was a one off thing but the same happened.

I'm not saying this is a bad product, it just doesn't suit me. I looked on this website to see if the same happened with anyone else which it did so I just decided to drop a review for other people wondering. :)


Masks -LUSH -Bunny Moon

I wasn't entirely sold on LUSH's new jelly masks, but I picked up Bunny Moon because my skin was freaking out and I wanted something soothing while it sorted itself out. Packaging is standard LUSH packaging - tiny clear tub (which I was told by the sales associate also counts toward their tub return perk). It's easy enough to use, pinch off a little bit and work it into a paste, smear all over one's face. Let it dry for ten minutes or so, and then rinse off (also doesn't take too much elbow grease to rinse off - another added bonus). The Bunny Moon has tiny flecks of gold glitter at the top, and is so pretty! Scent is soothing, not overpowering.

Man, when I wash this off after ten minutes, my skin is glowing, and so, so, soft. Redness has diminished, and it helped soothe some of my really inflamed areas. I follow up with a thick moisturizer and my skin has never felt happier. This mask hasn't caused any adverse reactions for my very sensitive, acne-prone, dry or reactive skin. If you're looking for your first mask for a foray into the jelly masks, this is it!

I'm about half-way through my tub, and I've used it about seven times. The sales associate told me they last longer than their traditional face masks, and that you can probably get a good 15+ uses out of one tub.

Shampoo -LUSH -Daddyo shampoo

I love this! Really nice product, I'm pretty blonde (dyed), I use this once a week, it gets rid of the brassiness and makes me look even blonder!!
The trick with this is wash in and wash out pretty much immediately, as it contains pretty natural dyes it could colour your highlighted or natural hair if left on for too long!
I really like the smell of this too, only thing is that it is pretty pricey the smallest bottle is $11 Canadian but considering I only use it once a week I can get over it!


Masks -LUSH -1000 Millihelens Jelly Face Mask

on 11/16/2017 7:50:00 PM

This is my first foray into Lush's new jelly face masks. When describing my skin (acne prone combo skin, oily t-zone and normal elsewhere) the Lush sales rep actually recommended me two of the other jelly masks. FOMO and The Birth of Venus, I think. I ended up going with this one in the end, partly because FOMO seemed very similar to Rosy Cheeks which I currently have a tub of, and partly because of the inclusion of green tea and witch hazel in 1000 Millihelens. My skin has always reacted well to Lush products containing witch hazel in the past, and this turned out to be no exception.

I am currently battling some hormonal acne, and while I don't know how much this mask does for my active spots, it certainly clears up clogged pores and brightens my skin a lot. It's a very enzymic, acidic mask, and it gives me a slight tingle when applied - though nothing crazy. Lush says to only let it sit on the skin for 5-10 minutes, and for sensitive and/or drier skin I'd definitely stay within that time limit. Personally I let it sit for about 10-15 minutes, and when it wash it off my skin is brighter, clearer and smoother. Not a miracle mask, but a nice one all the same. In the future I don't think I would use it in the winter though, as I think it will be a little bit too harsh and drying for me when my skin becomes more prone to surface dryness due to the cold. I can see myself repurchasing it and use during the summer, though.

I've seen others say that this mask is harder to turn into a paste than the other jelly masks, and I hope that is true, because it is a bit tricky to use. I can never get it to a smooth paste, it's always chunky and therefore hard to spread evenly on the skin. On the plus side, it's not one of those masks that you need a really thick layer in order to get results. It really is a unique face mask, and the consistency means a little goes a long way. Much, much longer than Lush's own estimate, which I believe is something like 5-6 uses if I remember correctly. I've probably used mine 6 times already, with at least 2/3 of the pot left. So don't be intimated by the price per application, as it'll probably last a lot longer than it seems.

Having just tried this one mask, I feel the same about it as I do about Lush's shower jellies - not the most user friendly, but they're childishly fun to use. A sweet fun fact is that every mask is apparently inspired by a "badass Lush babe", i.e. Lush businesswomen. This one they say is inspired by Lush co-founder Helen Ambrosen. Girl power face masks is the new face masks!

+ Cruelty free
+ Vegan (4 out of 5 jelly masks are, only Bunny Moon isn't due to the inclusion of honey)
+ Clarifying, brightening and smoothing
+ Smells like apples and green tea - really fresh!
+ Doesn't dry down on skin, so no itchy stiff feeling
+ A little goes a long way - it feels very potent!
+ Self-preserving, so no artificial preservatives
+ A lot longer shelf-life than Lush's fresh face masks, at 4 months. Can also be stored in room temperature.

- The inclusion of perfume seems unnecessary when you have so many natural fragrances in there
- The skin can feel slightly tight and dehydrated if left on too long
- Doesn't turn into a smooth paste like the other jelly masks seem to

I️ am on my third tub of this stuff and I️ have to say I️ really enjoy it. I️ don’t use it daily, but when I️ feel like my skin could use a break from all the harsh washes and scrubs I️ use on a weekly basis but I️ still need to remove my makeup, I️ turn to this and I’m always really satisfied afterward. I’ve noticed a lot of people saying they feel as though it leaves a “film” on your skin afterward, well isn’t that the point? After I️ use this stuff I️ feel like I️ need less moisturizer than normal. I️ massage a decent amount all over my face then either remove with a warm wash cloth or toner and a cotton round (I️ use Lush’s Breath of Fresh Air). I️ have pretty sensitive skin and this has always done a good job of removing my makeup and never causing irritation.

I gotta say I'm really loving this stuff, after suffering from numerous breakouts, dry skin, etc., I was desperate to find something that worked. After using this for a few days I noticed my skin started getting more supple and the breakouts were improving a lot!


Masks -LUSH -Catastrophe Cosmetic

i have a stash of masks at home, korean and western clay masks, TBS masks etc. But nothing beats Lush mask. Went to the store and bought home some samples to try and damnnnnnnnn!!! I enjoy and always look forward to using it. Catastrophe Comestic smells so good and earthy. It was like putting blueberry oatmeal onto my skin. And best part is that it is super easy to rinse off after 5-10 mins. Didn't break me out nor cause any tingling sensations, which TBS masks do. I'm sticking to their fresh mask because im hooked, and it's fresh so it kept me motivated to use instead of putting it aside to rot at one corner.

Moisturizers -LUSH -Imperialis

on 11/15/2017 7:56:00 PM

Lush products are incredibly expensive here in Singapore, it would cost me SGD$54 for the Imperialis, so I got a friend to buy it for me at australia. This is my second repurchase of this item because for some reason almost every lush item that I purchase works wonders to my skin.

It is hydrating for me and I didn’t break out from the ingredients from it. I actually like the smooth feeling on my skin after it’s absorbed. It doesn’t smell super great , very herb-y just to warn you so don’t get this is you cannot accept it. I think that it dries too quick and it’s a little difficult to apply if you are somebody who like to rub products into ur face. Tapping it onto ur skin is perhaps better in this case.

Overall I’ll repurchase again if I have the budget because I’ve tried many moisturizers and this is the only product that I will always empty.

Masks -LUSH -Don't Look At Me

This mask didn't do much for me. Although it has a great packaging - blame it on my aesthetic obsession. I guess is a good mask if you just want something good to put on, because it does feel good in the skin and gently exfoliates. But afterwards my skin just feel the same.

Love this stuff. I'm surprised so many people are bothered by the smell because mine didn't bother me at all. I felt like mine had more of a tea tree smell, I actually didn't notice the garlic at all. You only need a very tiny thin layer and it's really refreshing. anytime I have a breakout this helps tremendously. If I get a flare up I like to use this before going out and doing my makeup because I feel like it works almost immediately to take down any redness or irritation. I have more normal/oily skin if that helps anyone.
