Though the smell of this is nice, and it cools your skin---it really dried my skin out and made it flaky. Lots of people rave about it though so YMMV, thankfully I won this at a store event and used up the whole tub, but I really don't think I'd purchase it in the future
Mmmm...this is gorgeous. Use it straight from the fridge for a soothing, cooling treat. Smells delightful, I have combination skin (it used to be quite dry, and then it went normal and now it's gone all weird and a mixture of everything so I'm calling it combination) and recently been suffering a few breakouts - I had to wear a hat yesterday so that people knew which head to talk to). I applied this straight from the fridge and it seems to be very soothing on my sore skin. I've only applied to my spotty areas at the moment, I'll try it all over another time and update this review. In the meantime, lovely mask, will buy again, however it's a girl's perogative to change her mind...
i had no trouble removing this mask at all. how difficult can a mask me to remove????? also had no trouble at all putting it on....
its quite a beautiful product, v soothing and gorgoues straight out of the fridge.
i'd buy this again after a big night out or a red break out (which is y i tried it this time....medication break out)
I like this softening smell and the calming down effect.But i thought it should take away some blemishes or so.It's a really cool mask how i would buy again.
I've tried a number of LUSH masks, and I would buy this again (along with Cupcake and, occasionally, Crash Course in Skincare). It really is packed with blueberries in a creamy base. I had no problem applying it, and it smelled wonderful (a light, natural berry-floral scent) and left my skin looking smooth and clear the next morning. I would give two slight warnings. One: this mask would be too drying for normal-to-dry skin, due to its generous amount of calomine. Two: it is difficult to remove. I thought I had rinsed the mask off, but when I looked in mirror, I saw that my skin still had a pale, powdery lavender tint, like the face of John Singer Sargent's famous "Madame X," although much less glamorous. I needed to use some gentle cleanser to remove all the residue.
The texture of this mask is kinda wierd. It is very thick and dry. It is good when I mix it with some milk. (Milk is really good for your skin!!) It smells really good and makes my skin look more healthy.
My face is quite oily and I get the odd breakout. Since using Catastrophe Cosmetic (two months now), I have not had a single blemish. My skin is brighter and looks great without foundation. This mask has become a staple. It does take a bit of rinsing, but it is well worth the effort.
I do think this is very calming and its my favourite Lush mask. It makes it feel really soft and look brighter.Oh, and it also comes off very easy.
This is supposed to help calm skin, but all it did was make it more red. Waste of money
When you smell Catastophe Cosmetic in the container, it smells nicely of blueberries, but after washing it off a subtle and beautiful rose scent emerges. It's a very nice and calming mask if you have agitated skin. The calamine takes the redness away, and it is one of those masks that feels so comforting and soothing while it sits. Anything with calamine should be washed off very well though or else you can get a filmy residue.
