This is the first fresh mask I have used from LUSH. They were trying to sell me one and I wasn't interested so they gave me one for free. hm. Well I have been using it lately and I am so in love. The scent is lovely, the mask made my skin feel plumper immediatly after use. My skin does feel and look 'detoxed'. I didn't feel any burn or notice any yellow tinge from the tumeric - but I did cleanse after with Tea Tree Toner. My skin doesn't feel moist after using this... it feels a little dry. I moisturise and that problem is fixed. Overall a great mask - I am not sure if I will even try the others, I'll just stick with Brazened Honey. I've tried Mask of Magnaminty and it was awful so I was skeptical about these masks. A+ Lush, this is a great product.
This is my favorite of the LUSH Bio-Fresh face masks. I'm "older" but my skin still gets clogged sometimes, and the Brazened Honey detoxes my skin and makes it soft and smooth. I use this as a third step - cleanse, use Ren Glycolactic Skin Renewal peel mask, rinse off and apply Brazen Honey. Using these together makes my skin really smooth and youthful-looking. And keep the container (which is FAR superior to LUSH's old plastic tubs), rinse, save up 5 containers and you can turn them in for a free mask (this works for all of the LUSH black plastic containers).
I have combination skin and have tried many face masks, but so far this is the best one. I like the honey and herbal smell, it exfoliates well, feels good on my skin and leaves me with a nice glow. I noticed less oiliness and breakouts after using it for about a month and will repurchase when I run out.
i found that this mask did not work for me. i did not notice any improvement in my skin after i used it. and i think it broke me out because after i used it i started to break out. glad i got a sample of this one because for me it is not worth it. i will stick to cupcake mask. which is my hg now.
I wanted very much to like this mask, especially after all the rave reviews. However, I found that the bits in it were too large and rough for me. I am tolerant of most skin products and don't really find anything wrong with anything, but this just didn't work for me. It didn't leave my skin feeling as smooth as Cupcake. It's not that spreadable, and I have to say that the smell isn't for everyone. I wish I had gotten a sample of this before I purchased it... I just used up my last bit and will definitely not be repurchasing.
Great mask, one of my favorites! It does a great job detoxing my pores, exfoliating, and brightening my skin while not being too drying. I've been using this mask whenever I've been able to get my hands on it (I don't live near a LUSH and these aren't available by mail), and it's a potent addition to my skincare routine. My only qualm is that its size, though deceptively small, is a bit too generous given the short self-life of this product. I appreciate the all natural, preservative free aspect of LUSH's Fresh masks, but there's no way a single person will go through an entire tub on their own before the expiration date on the tub if it's only used on the face. You don't need much, so even if you use it 3-4 times a week for 3 weeks (which is about the shelf life on these things), you're likely to have quite a bit left. For this reason, I wish they'd offer these in even smaller sizes for a slightly lower price. I hate throwing stuff out after only a few weeks!
Also, very pleased to see them use sturdier containers for these than they used to. For a long time they used cheap, clear plastic disposable tubs which would crack and break pretty easily. The switch to the standard black plastic tubs was a very welcome change. Even better, you can now turn in tubs (5 I think?) for a free face mask, so not only are these tubs much sturdier, there's incentive to recycle them!
I bought 75g Brazened Honey (and The Sacred Truth & Ayesha) from ebay for £2 with £2 next day deliv.
Its a mustard yellow thick paste with gentle exfoliators (ground almonds). I have it on my face right now and it smells like herbs and grass/flowers, kinda bitter but sweet at the same time lol, i dont smell any honey though which is strange considering the name of this product, my mum thinks it smells like the dentist! it is a strange smell, but i like it, and with all LUSH products, the smells and just the fact they're all natural makes them addictive-to me anyway!
its very thick and not that easy to spread but it feels good coz its cool from the fridge. it dries like a clay mask and feels slightly tight, the smell lingers the whole time your wearing it which i like. what i dont like is that is flakes when ur wearing it so it can get messy, theres flakes of it on my pj top now!
i left it on for 15mins. it was quite easy to wash off, just like any other facemask..i got my face wet and massaged in circles before gently splashing my face repeatedly with warm water to rinse it off, then i splash my face with cool water to close my pores and patted it dry with a towel.
my face instantly looks so clean and fresh, it doesnt feel tight or like it needs moisturiser, my pores look alot smaller and my skin feels REALLY silky smooth, its made my skin radiant! love loveloveee x
I use a gentle cleanser and have a hot shower before i apply it on my dry face, then leave it for 15-20mins (i always leave masks longer than the recommended 5-10mins, i dont think thats long enough to get the full benefit, although if u have sensitive skin listen to LUSH not me lol.) then i splash my face with warm water and gentle rub in circles to exfoliate, keep splashing til its all gone then splash my face with cold water to close pores.
This is the best of the Biofresh masks, IMO (especially since they discontinued the Enzynamite a few years ago - LOVED that one). It makes my skin feel really soft and smooth, perks up the color immediately, and is just all-around really nice.
One of the things that does piss me off about LUSH, though (don't get me started - I love their products, hate some of the other BS they pull) is that these masks last far beyond their expiration date. Oh, well, I guess if you don't know that they are trying to get you to buy more than you really need - I mean seriously, they say you should get TWO uses out of one container? I can easily get 7 or 8, and I don't apply sparingly - then I guess it's just a lesson you will eventually learn. But I've had Biofreshes that I've used up to a month after the "expiration" date and they've been fine.
Love this! There is actually a noticeable improvement in my skin after using this...even immediately afterwards. The pores on my nose are smaller and the overall tone and colour of my skin is more even. Very calming and lovely mask and I will definitely repurchase.
I haven't done a review in a really really long time...and I'm talking YEARS. Tho this might be too quick of a review after only one use, I have to say I'm pleasantly surprised. I have had pretty bad skin on and off for 9 months now. Mainly getting pimples or not-quite-formed pimples along the jawline, chin and sides of my face. SO I thought I'd bite the bullet and try this mask.
As I'm writing, my skin is so beautifully soft and I feel really clean and exfoliated. I have a feeling that it may have drawn up more bumpies and they'll prop up tomorrow, but that's a good thing I guess...drawing out all the toxins!
Will definately update my review again once I use up the tub. But so far I am very impressed. I have used the cosmetic warrior mask before, ....used up 2 tubs. And I'm more impressed with one application's results than that! Hopefully it'll help heal my skin.
