I'm surprised that the reviews for this aren't better! This is the only mask I've ever repurchased from Lush & the main reason why I go in there at all. The first time I used it, maybe a couple of years ago, I was really impressed by 2 things; the way it cut down the redness in my skin, and how matte & fresh my skin looked afterward. I have combo to oily skin with moderate redness in my cheeks and t-zone. This just seems like a very calming mask. Didn't cause any irritation/breakouts for me, and my skin's pretty finicky. This isn't a staple in my skincare routine; not a must have. But when I have some extra cash, or my skin's acting really wacky, I'll treat myself to this. As another reviewer said, if you've got redness, give this a go.
I love this mask! I buy it whenever I go to LUSH! It smells so fantastic and is is the perfect combo of drying and moisture for my combination- acne prone skin. It makes your pores shrink up super small and controls oil for days after use... without sucking your skin dry. Fantastic.
This is good for my combination/super dry skin. It controls my t-zone and I can really see a difference after I use it. My skin would feel less dead and look less dull.. maybe that's just a psychological effect. I love the smell too. It's made of blueberries which is great for detoxifying. Anyway, it's quite a nice mask- but it's not remarkably miraculous, etc. Some of my friends swear by this, so maybe it would work for you too!
I bought this after reading the reviews. This did nothing for the redness in my face or acne. However, it does crack and leave a big powdery mess all over your bathroom and clothes!
This is the first mask I've tried from lush in a while, and I have to say I was pretty pleased with it. Its a lovely lavender colour and smells gorgeous too. I found it cleared the redness on the top of my cheeks and left a softening oily residue on my face ( you may find you need to cleanse again after this) which was quite nice. However don't expect it to magically remove pimples, its more a complexion refiner and probabley best suited to those with normal to combo skins.
I got this as a gift and it is not made for my skin type but since I had it I had to try it. It was OK, but left my skin quite dry and a little itchy. I love the colour and the smell though! It didn't came in the usual box eather, but in a poor, thin one that easily brakes.
I love this mask! I have fair skin that tends to get very red in the cheek area. I have found that this mask tones down the redness and doesn't upset my sensitive skin. I also love the smell! The only down side to me would be the chunks of blueberry skin that will flake off as the mask dries.
I wanted to love this mask, but I honestly felt like it didn't do anything for my skin. It just felt/smelled/looked great on it. It does leave your skin plump and moisturized afterwards. I can't stand masks that strip your face of moisturize. Sadly I feel like the reason why it is so moisturizing afterwards is because there is a layer of filmy oil left after. You'll have to re-cleanse and tone your face after this. Didn't do anything brightening and didn't help with my blotchy forehead.
This is my favourite Fresh Face Mask from LUSH! And I've tried almost all of them. Catastrophe Cosmetic gets rid of all the red blotchiness on my face! Leaving my skin eventoned and brightened. The effects also last well into the next day, in other words I don't have to wear foundation the day after using this just a little concealer . It also reduces the appearance of my pores and leaves my skin feeling super smooth. When my skin is acting up I can always count on this to save my skin. It is a beautiful lavender colour and smells great too! It's also really cheap, I get 4-5 uses for only $6CDN. Oh and just as the reviewer below mentions, make sure to stir it before using. Have repurchased twice and will continue too. TIP: with all LUSH masks if you use damp fingers you'll use less product and get a smoother, more even application.
It smells yummy =)
I put this one while I was in the bath so didn't have problems of flakes as some others mentioned!
It smelt yum and felt nice on my skin!
When I took it off, i still had redness on my skin, but overall skin looked brighter!
Would keep using it!!
