I tried lots of LUSH fresh face masks and I did not enjoy this product
Perhaps it's because I don't enjoy bananas in general.
But this thing smelled overly sweet and is disgusting.
It looked like vomit. As if someone vomited bananas on me...
It's overly greasy and the smell stayed on my face for AGES.
It was softening, but did not feel natural at all. Felt like my face was purposely caked on with a lot of grease to make it soft.
the whole experience was kind of gross for me and I would NOT buy this again!
However, I do know some that like it and thus I give it a 2. If you like it, it would go good with the porridge soap. which has a similar smell but is less disgusting.
I generally don't use LUSH masks because they need to be kept refrigerated and must be used quickly owing to their fresh ingredients. This is no fault of LUSH's, simply my own preference. In any case, this mask is worth the hassle. It smells delicious, which is a bonus, but it also smooths, soothes and moisturizes beautifully. I have used this after 16 hour shifts when my skin is at its worst and it really makes a difference. Did I mention it smells delicious? It isn't like a typical mask it doesn't dry out on my face and it kind of needs to be smooshed into the skin rather than smoothed on because it is kinda lumpy, more of a slightly gooey paste than your typical mask. But it is worth the effort. Did I mention it smells delicious? The only problem? Constantly sold out.
Smells like yummy banana cake or a vanilla cake, it's just delicious!! =) This has oats and banana and vanilla to cool and nourish the skin. It also has Illipe Butter to reduce redness, and ground almonds to gently polish the skin. It even has Kaolin to cleanse and clarify your skin. It has everything that a skin needs to be smooth, soft and supple.
I thought this was going to be too rich, but this would be a nice soothing and moisturising and delicious mask for all skin in need of pampering. A winter must have! (Unless you really hate bananas or your skin is super oily, then this mask isn't really quite right for you). Remember to keep clear of eyes and to keep it refrigerated! AUD$15.95/black tub. Hope this helps.
For reference: my skin is normally combination/oily/sensitive, used to be a super oily/acne prone, but now that it's winter, it's become combination/dry/sensitive.
