I am a teenager with acne and will literally try anything for clear skin, I thought I'd give this a try. Firstly, it smells lovely, very strong mint scent, it easy to allow and feels good on the skin. I brought the smaller tub as I didn't feel like paying for the bigger one.
I wouldn't say I don't like it, but it hasn't improved my skin, I haven't seen my acne clearing up after using this, which is disappointing.
However, it is a good mask, it leaves me feeling fresh and clean.
This mask is absolutely amazing!! Since using this mask I have noticed such a positive change in my skin. It clears up my acne really well. I tend to get acne on my back (gross I know) :( but this helps out with that as well as my face. It feels so good and soothing and it smells amazing. For the amount you get I think the price is really nice also. I see negative reviews saying that it's a huge mess?? Which I don't get.. I use it in the shower and it's so east to just wash down the drain..not at all messy. Anyway I love it and would recommend it to anyone!!
When you first use this, it feels SO intense! Like a reeeeally cold burning feeling on your face (doesnt make sense I know) but stick with it :) this has really really cleaned up my skin, and leaves it feeling so soft. Only annoying thing is how far away from me lush is and the fact that there's a short enough sell by date, but overall it's still a good product.
The first thing you notice when you use this mask is the smell. AMAZING!!! It is so easy to apply and take off and it exfoliates really well, must be the ground aduki beans.
My acne has not decreased by my skin is generally less red overall.
Another great thing is if you take back 5 clean pots you get a free face mask! Yay!
I have very oily skin, with mild but stubborn acne. I had high hopes for this product but it did NOTHING to help my acne, maybe even made it worse on my forehead and cheeks. :( it smells really really good though
My skin is prone to blackheads, whiteheads all types of acne but also dry and sensitive. This product is a life saver. I bought the big version for £9 in July last year and still have a good amount to get through. It's really great for calming down irritated skin and lightly exfoliating.
Probably one of the best masks I have ever bought. I do however find it kinda difficult to apply, at first I used to apply it dry. Now I have figured out a way to apply it much easier, use damp hands and it slides on much better. Literally removes all blackheads and makes skin incredibly soft. The peppermint is really good too has a very nice clean feel. It is pretty messy and when it starts to dry it crumbles off onto clothes.
Somedays it seems to be far more effective than others, so I only use it once a week because I feel it works better that way. Pretty drying though, so use moisturiser afterwards.
Love this stuff! Makes my skin feel super soft! Even my boyfriend likes to use this any chance he gets because he loves the minty smell and the fresh cooling feeling it gives to the skin. When ur wearing the mask u can definitely feel it tighten up ur skin, but i feel as though its pulling all the impurities from your skin! Definitely something i would reccommend and repurchase.
Wow! I seriously love this stuff! I have combination/acne-prone skin and this mask works like a charm! It leaves my face feeling so smooth and matte. It's minty, it stings a bit, and it feels very drying (almost like chalk) once it has dried, but it is so worth it! A bit expensive but it was a fantastic investment for me. I go a good 6-8 hours after using this without seeing any oily skin and my face remains hydrated (not even moisturized, but hydrated). It worked very well for me. 10/0.
AMAZING, minty fresh smell, mild exfoliating, calms my breakouts, improves my skintone..... it's an absolute dream. You don't have to pop it in the fridge like the other lush masks either so you can keep this for a while! Bonus!
DO NOT BUY THIS!!! UGH! I'm so mad at myself for letting that sales rep sway me! What a waste of time and money! How could I be so STUPID and GUILIBLE! This product is TERRIBLE, and do you know why? Because both mint and African merigold oil are irritants that cause CONTACT DERMATITIS! (Source: Encyclopedia of Common Natural Ingredients Used in Food, Drugs and Cosmetics, 2nd Edition, John Wiley & Sons, 1996). But my god was that girl convincing!
Listen, my skin is not fragile, or sensitive. It's pretty hearty, and I like to take care of it. But like anyone, I had been having problems with blackheads on my chin, and nose, so I wanted to do something about it. The girl sold me this, and one other product, and they were GARBAGE! I threw the other product out after the first use (it was a sea salt scrub) thinking that the insanley large salt chunks were what caused the irritation. Simply put, it was both products.
This product is suppose to be like a mint infused clay mask to draw out the excess oils in your face. What it does do is it dries out your skin WAY TOO MUCH so that your skin over produces oil later. I felt like I had washed my face with dish soap. The mint and merigold left my skin inflammed, irritated and ITCHY! MY GOD! Like I said, I don't have sensitive skin, and I'm not allergic to these ingredients. Look at the labels, not only did LUSH include these two known irritants, they also dumped a bucket of perfume into this. Terrible product. DO NOT BUY! I ended up using this as a foot scrub, it wasn't very good, but it was a way to get rid of it on skin that is much thicker, and less likely to errupt in red, itchy patches.
Overall rating: 0/5
Price: 0/5: (this was expensive to buy, and more so after having to buy a replacement product in it's place, and a product to help calm the irritation)
Packaging 1/5: The more I think about it, the more I realize that the LUSH jars are honestly pretty unsanitary. Plus the excess product always seems to build up on the screw lid, it dries there, so everytime you take it off, or put it on, dried flaky bits get everywhere.
