The Best Lush Face Masks

the best lush face masks
I'm pretty new into the world of 'Lush' face masks, and by pretty new, I mean that I've previously tried and loved their 'Cupcake' face mask and loved it so much that it's the only one I ever tried and yeh. Stuck in my ways one might say. But before Christmas I said to myself 'Jess you gots to try some of the other masks, stop being so boring!' and here I am, knee deep in Lush face masks. 5 clean pots and you get a free one!! It's such an incentive to buy more of them, damn you Lush.

I've recently been using three different Lush face masks,
  1. BB Seaweed
  2. Ayesha
  3. Catastrophe Cosmetic
all completely different, yet all fantastic for use on sensitive acne prone skin - my kinda masks.
My skin is prone to acne, but I would consider it combination. Oily forehead, dry cheeks and dry chin. It's a bit of a mess really so finding products that don't upset the balance can be quite tricky, I'm weary about products that are heavily scented but oddly enough I'm okay with heavy scents when it comes to Lush face masks. I suppose it's because I know its a natural scent and not artificial/chemical. the Lush face masks also have quite a short shelf life because of the fresh ingredients so I'd advise you to use them before the best before, they also have to be kept in the fridge (if you didn't know but I bet you did already).
lush bbseaweed face mask review

'BBSeaweed' is a face mask my brother brought me back from Dublin a few weeks ago. I meant to text him to say pick up 'Catastrophe Cosmetic' but I forgot and after some guidance from the Lush gods, he arrived home with this one. I was instantly intrigued, I'd never heard anything about 'BBSeaweed' and because I never had any intentions of purchasing it, I hadn't done any research. Thankfully, I've been really enjoying using it. My favourite thing is the texture, it reminds me of a mousse and glides onto my face effortlessly, some face masks take that extra bit of work but this just goes straight on. I've also noticed since I started using this mask, that certain areas of redness on my skin have reduced. I wasn't expecting this at all. Apparently seaweed is a natural anti-inflammatory and works wonders on acne prone skin and resulting redness. Who knew!? I highly recommend this mask if, like me, you have blotchy skin that needs some TLC.
lush ayesha face mask
ayesha face mask review
I have a love/hate relationship with Lush 'Ayesha'. It smells awful. I mean absolutely awful, but it feels incredible on my skin. I don't know how to describe the smell but it's unlike any Lush smell I've come across. If you hate the cutesy Lush scent you may love this, it smells like eh death.
I love love love how tight this makes my skin feel! I may only be 22 but it's important to me to stay on top of wrinkles and things like that now, rather than worry about reversing any damage years down the line. I'm also quite expressive with my eyebrows (Cadbury advert) and my forehead needs all the care it can get but yeh, I imagine botox to feel like an extreme version of 'Ayesha'. Shocking comparison, I know but that's just how great it feels. It soaks up all the oils on my forehead too so I've started to focus this more to my oily areas rather than the dry. It feels quite tough when you apply it to your skin and it can be a little awkward to move about but once you get it on it feels great. If you're quite young with dry skin, this isn't for you but if you're a little bit older and looking to inject some life back into your face without anything extreme, 'Ayesha' is for you.

catastrophe cosmetic face mask review
Do not be fooled by these pictures!! The Lush 'Catastrophe Cosmetic' mask is in fact a delicious blueberry blue and not this washed out brownish color, editing problems. But yuss 'Catastrophe Cosmetic' is my favourite out of the three, it smells amazing, it looks good enough to eat, and after snapchatting it on my face, a number of friends commented that it looked like mint ice cream was pasted all over my face. A good compliment in my books. I know many bloggers have said 'Catastrophe Cosmetic' helped rid them of their acne, but for me I found that not to be true, however it did help soothe my troublesome areas and left my skin feeling soft afterwards. Ridiculously soft. When I applied it to my face, my skin felt instantly refreshed. For some reason I found this mask was a lot cooler on application than the other two and I really liked that. It was definitely the best smelling of the three, and one I will repurchase again and again.
Do you have a favorite Lush face mask? or any mask? Comment below and let me know.
