In love with this!!!! =] My first fresh face mask from LUSH, and I'm very impressed. It is supposed to help correct redness in the skin, and it does exactly that. It made with real blueberries, and the coolest thing I saw when applying this was that the blueberries sometimes come out in chunks, so that's really neat =] The only thing I don't like is that it's very dusty/crumbly when it dries, so I look down at my shirt and see little pieces of blue dust on it. That's a bit annoying, but for all the good the mask does, I can live with it. After taking the mask off, my skin was like a GHOST! But it really took the redness away, and kept it away even until the next morning when I put my makeup on. It does leave your skin feeling/looking powdery which is kinda cool. Overall, great product. It comes in a cute little tub which is good for 2-3 weeks, and you can get more than 4 masks out of!
All I can say is NO for this product. I bought it and had such high hopes for this. If I only write one review for this username (ridemebigsheldon) has my other reviews - it will be for this.
Cystic breakouts on my cheeks. Awesome. Too bad since this product seemed so fresh and lovely, and I loved how my skin almost felt powdery afterward. Must have been a film or something, but it just didn't do my skin good. Oh well.
I tried this for the first time last time and i will say straight away it is the nicest smelling product i have ever used on my face, lush should make a solid perfume out of this smell... mmm delicious, it applies really well and has little bits of blueberry in it... heavenly, i dries very nicely and it easy to wash off, leaves the skin sooo nice and soft. this is THE best facemask I have ever used and would reccomend it to anyone even those with sensitive or sore skin as it cools and soothes with cammomile
if you're only going to try one face mask from lush, it should be this one. i wish i lived closer to a store so i'd never have to be without it. unfortunately the closest one is about an hour away and i can only get out there once every couple of months.
this makes my skin SO soft, i can't even believe it. and it calms down my redness big time, which is major for me. it even smells nice! i love this. i just ran out of my second jar, thank goodness i'm visiting lush sometime this week. i can't live without it now.
Edit: Ehhh, I don't love it that much anymore to warrant a 5. I find myself buying brazened honey much more, possibly because I'm more into the detox/cleansing masks and my acne just got worse (nothing to do with LUSH, lol). I can see myself reaching for this one when my skin calms down though!
I really, really like this product! I can't refrain myself from writing a product, even though I've only just tried it yesterday night. Because I'm scared of aggravating my acne in ANY way, I am usually wary of perfumes and dyes and whatnot in my skincare products. I've been avoiding Lush all these years because, well, it simply SMELLS too much. I was convinced that it would harm my skin.
I used it yesterday and wow! My face felt so smooth. To be completely fair, I don't know if it's PURELY because of this mask because I used Mask of Magnanimity right before, rinsed it off, and layered on this one. The grains of... whatever it was in the mask (azuki? blueberry?) wasn't prickly at all but still gently exfoliated my skin. The mask just felt so... LUSH. My skin felt pampered. I rinsed it off and followed with my usual skincare. I ended with 2 drops of 5% oregano oil in kukui nut oil instead of my usual moisturizer. That night in bed, I could not stop stroking my cheek. Maybe it was the kukui nut oil. Either way, this combo works for me so I'm sticking to it! This mask definitely doesn't dry your skin out and when it "dries," it doesn't crack and crumble like normal clay masks, so it still feels good. Definitely a keeper (:
I love this stuff! Besides the fact that it smells gorgeous, everytime I use it I am still amazed with the results. After using this my skin looks toned like I never knew it could. I don't usually suffer from redness or irritation, but still this makes a major difference on the tone of my skin. My skin just looks like porcelain! And feels very soft and smooth. When I rinse it off it always looks like there is still some residue, so I rinse it with a face wash. I have never gotten any break-outs from this. I pick this up every time I'm at a Lush store.
Update: I've fallen out of love with most of lush's skincare, except for this product (and the other fresh face masks). I love this product and I've repurchased it many times.
Total bummer. Really want to like this but I'm gonna throw in the towel. I've used it 3 times now and each time I've woken the next morning to find a new zit or 2 - the bad kind, cystic. I love the way this stuff smells, that it's all natural and that it has blueberries! It's just fun and I wanted it to work for me so badly. Now I have 3/4 of the jar left and am scared to try it again. I'm pretty sure the residue from the clay clogged my pores, or maybe it was the essential oils. All I know is that residue just refused to wash off - no matter what, I never felt clean. I would've lived with it tho if it weren't for the breaking out - that's a deal breaker. Maybe a different LUSH mask is waiting to rock my world, hope so, I really love the idea of them.
After reading all the great reviews of this product I wanted to try this mask for my moderate rocasea. It was soothing at first, probably becuz it's cold, but after I removed it my face felt very tight and now the morning after I have hot spots. Plus it left a film on my skin and I didn't care for the scent. I will use again just to see if it gets better with time, but will probably not purchase again. Major disappointment so far!
A very soothing mask that is perfect for sensitive skin. My face felt like it had a residue after rinsing, but upon drying, my skin felt soft. Redness was subdued from the calamine and I didn't break out. It smelled nice too and had bits of blueberries in it.
Rosacea Girls, listen up!
THIS. IS. IT. No, seriously. I don't use anything prescription, I use this. Actually, this stuff works so well I barely even need it any more! I keep a pot on hand at almost all times, because my triggers are spicy foods (which I love) wine (which I love) heat and air conditioning (which I need) and stress.
SO. Here's what happened the first time I used it. I cried. Yeah, you heard me. I am lame, and I cried. Because my skin hadn't been not-red in years, and I had forgotten that it could be. My husband went "WOAH. Damn baby". Because he hadn't seen me not red....well, ever. It can be a tad drying, true. And if you don't rinse well you may see a chalky cast, but that comes off. And it's WORTH it. If they dc this I will truly perish.
I keep my rosacea under control, my combo skin on the normal side and my blackheads at bay using my own personal regimen of LUSH products, but this is the go-to, emergency product for sure. I even rec'd it to an MUAer who got burned by a chemical peel the day of a big event and it worked for her just like it does for me.
ETA: It's fresh and has to be refrigerated, so unfortunately you can only get it in-store.
Please, if you have rosacea, try this. Use it daily for a few days if you don't have the immediate results like I did, and you will see. If I am wrong, you're out $8 bucks. But if I am right..... continued >>
