Over the past few weeks I’ve been using this new minty face mask from Lush. The shop assistant in White City told me that this is their best mask for cleaning your pores and preventing breakouts. I find that if I don’t take care of my skin and keep it clean I get acne really easily, so of course I was willing to give it a go. You can use it on your body as well as your face but I feel like this small tub would run out quickly if I used it for my face AND body.
The mask reminds me of a really strong pack of chewing gum; It’s probably not for everyone though as it’s quite a strong, clean scent. I read that the peppermint ingredient actually stimulates the blood cells in your face which makes your skin look brighter, which is definitely something that my skin needs. As soon as autumn arrives and my tan fades, my skin feels really dull and dry so I’d say I’m definitely in need of some brightening up at the minute.
One of the things I love about this mask is the fact that it doesn’t dry like most face masks. Even after having it on my face for 15 minutes, the mask is still wet and sticky. Sometimes if I use face masks that dry quickly and feel tight on my face then my skin looks red and irritated afterwards. I don’t think there’s any point in investing in a product that’s just doing to dry out your face. This is by far the most gentle but still the most effective face mask I’ve ever used. I even love it more than my Lush Cup O’ Coffee mask, which I didn’t think would ever happen.
At the minute I don’t actually have any spots, but I do have a little bit of scarring on one of my cheeks from having them previously. I’ve found that since I’ve been using this face mask, the redness on my cheeks is slowly disappearing. Another thing that I love about it is I only have to use it once or twice a week for it to make a difference to my skin. I usually apply it after I’ve been to the gym because my skin’s always a sweaty mess. Sometimes, just washing your face isn’t enough.
I’ll definitely buy this again once I’ve finished it, especially seeing as it was only a little over £6. Compared to other face masks I’ve tried and heart about, it definitely seems like the best value for money.
Thanks for reading!
Let me know if you have any face mask recommendations because I’m sure this one won’t last for long…
