I collected up my 5 pots and traded them in for this face mask. Originally, I was looking for rosy cheeks or don't look at me but they were out of stock so the saleslady pointed me toward this face mask. It was blue and smelt delicious, so I thought "why not?"

I have combination skin which gets very, very dry across my nose and cheeks due to swimming. I washed my face with lâncome's crême-mousse confort then applied this mask and sat down to watch 10 minutes of America's next top model. When I rinsed it off, my skin felt hydrated and glowing. I know you aren't supposed to, but I couldn't stop touching my face. After my toner (tea tree water from lush) and moisturiser (Model co), my skin felt amazing.

All time favorite mask.. Good for toning down redness and shrinking pimples. It's mild enough to be used every night on problem areas. I have combination skin and this is not drying on the cheeks. Only thing is the expiry date, it's too soon.. So I try to slather on a thick slab everytime I use this if not I end up discarding at least half tub when it reaches the expiry date..

I'd never been interested in trying lush's skincare but I figured I should since it's decently priced and I'm on a budget, plus it's more natural. This is my new favorite face mask in the history of skincare! I have sensitive, combo skin that is prone to some acne and redness. This mask feels like absolute heaven on my skin. I love how it feels going on; it's thick, cold, and soothing. It has great ingredients like blueberry and calamine that really calm inflammation. But the winner is how amazing my skin looks when I take the mask off. It GLOWS, people. I am a heavy foundation wearer and this makes me want to go without it, that's how good it looks. My one and only complaint is how the mask crumbles a bit off your face when it dries but it's a small price to pay. I usually take it off when it starts to do that anyway. All in all, I absolutely love this and will continue to repurchase!

I think this might be the first Lush product that I actively hate. It was recommended to me by the SA to help combat the redness in my cheeks (I've tried Rosy Cheeks and wanted to try something new). The texture is almost gritty due to the blueberry pulp mixed in and the scent isn't unpleasant. The problem- It's. So. MESSY! It was literally falling off in clumps as I was trying to apply. It wouldn't adhere to my skin at all and by the time I finally got fed up and said "good enough" my sink and vanity were FILTHY. I even found chunks down my shirt. Not worth the price and I'm going to see if I can exhange it for Rosy Cheeks. If I could give negative stars I would- very disappointed.

Pros:
smell isn't terrible

Cons:
slightly gritty texture
VERY messy, will literally fall off your face during application

I have been using this for a month (took a sample earlier and then finally decided to buy it). I use this product only when I am having those "pimply" days.

Pros:
1) It helped me to slightly lighten my mild acne scars, perhaps because this product contains calamine powder which apparently helps to fade scars

2) It made my skin brighter and helped me to remove my tan

3) It helped me to tighten my pores

4) Keep my zits here and there in control

Cons:
1) It is not suitable for people with dry or flaky skin. I use it only once in a week or two weeks. So, if you use this you have to follow up with a good moisturizer or sleeping mask

2) It is pricy for the amount you get (and the expiration date)

3) Lush's Aqua Marina cleanser (which also contains calamine powder) would give you the same benefits but aqua marina is slightly cheaper, has a longer expiration date and comes in a bigger tub.

This face mask cools my skin that can at times get very flushed and red and does a tremendous job at calming down my hormonal breakouts. The smell is so lovely and relaxing after a hard day at work, and the fact that it helps with my breakouts and flushes makes it a triple threat! It's by no means a miracle cure in terms of treating hormonal/moderate/cystic acne, but it works really well with existing treatments to give you a completely natural and indulging face mask that moisturises while it soothes. As my skin is quite oily, this mask whisks away oil without drying it out, but I have friends with dry skin try this and not be pleased, so keep that in mind if you have very dry skin! A part from that, it's fab!

This mask works amazing for my skin. I loved it when I had acne and very oily skin, but I also use it on my combination skin with scars right now. It makes my skin feel extremely soft but it doesn't make it more oily at all. I also really like to smell of it.

The only downside of lush masks is the fact that you can't keep them for a long time and they come in a jar instead of a tube. And, this mask has some little chunks of blueberry in them. I think they work fantastic for the skin (with all the antioxidants) but I prefer masks that are 100% smooth. Nevertheless, I've repurchased this a few times and I will defenitely keep doing that!

This product seriously cleared up my skin, and has improved it as well! I don't get much acne on my forehead anymore, and my skin glows these days. Sure, the texture is weird and I don't care much for the smell. But this mask is seriously great for oily, acne-prone types because it just clears up your skin! But after washing this mask off, it left a weird white cast on my skin, probably because it was a little drying. But that just makes it so any product you put on top of it will absorb so much more effectively. If you decide to use a nice serum or layer products on after this mask, your skin will soak up the moisture so well. This mask paired with Grease Lighting is my dream skin combo. Will definitely repurchase it.

Skin: Normal, Fair, Not Sure

Hair: Brown, Straight, Medium

Eyes: Green

Advantages:
+ very nice blueberry smell ( which is unusual for lush, all their masks have...specific smell)
+ has real chunks of blueberries which can't be even more natural and beautiful
+calms down skin in case of redness
Disadvantages:
- because of the real blueberries it HAS to be used before the date due
- makes skin dry, so I have to put two layers of moisturizer afterwards
- oily texture ( you might like it, you might not)
Overall, I don't think this product fits normal type of skin, catastrophe mask makes it feel dehydrated. However, does its job against greasiness

This mask saved my skin when it was going through a rough time. I'd had some bad reactions to a few new products I'd been trying and my skin was red, flakey, broken out in large, sore pimples, and just generally looked like hell. I'd used this mask before a while back but it was during a time when my skin was ok, so I never really noticed much of an effect.

This time was different. I applied it every night for 3 or 4 days in a row, and in addition to an overall gentle routine with a few trusted products, my skin quickly got back on track. The redness calmed significantly, the flakes were gone, the pimples were all healed. My skin even had a bit of a healthy glow again. I have skin that usually takes a long time to "bounce back" from bad reactions, and this sped up the process remarkably.

I enjoy the smell - blueberries and calamine. It's a little strong, but fresh. This mask needs to be kept in the fridge (per product instructions), so it feels nice and cooling when applying it. The texture of this is strange: it's creamy, but very thick and almost a little dry. I find the easiest way to apply this is to scoop it out, mix it with just a little bit of water in my hand to make the texture a bit thinner/moister, and then apply to my face.

This mask does start to crumble/flake as it dries on your face, but it's actually meant to be taken off before it dries completely, anyway. I usually leave it on for about 15 minutes. When I'm ready to remove it, I pat water onto it first to soften, which turns the product kind of creamy and spreadable again. I'll spend a minute or so massaging it around on my face, then rinse and pat dry. When I do it this way, I find I don't need a cloth to remove it.

I'll definitely repurchase this, especially if my skin needs an intervention again.
