Hello! It's been a while since I've done any Skin Care Sunday Posts! I haven't tried anything new on my face in the past few months, but a few weeks ago I picked up a fresh face mask by Lush called Cosmetic Catastrophe.
For the rest of this month, I'm going to be reviewing a diffenret face mask every Sunday!
I'm obsessed with Lush Products, you all know that! Cosmetic Catastrophe is the first of the Fresh face makes that I've tried from Lush
, and I bought this one on a whim. I do love their Mask of Magnaminty and have been using it for years, but I wanted to try something new.
This is about $7 for 2.1 oz, which is fairly cheap but I'll talk more about that later.
After telling the person who was helping me about my skin type (combo oily, sensitive, slightly acne prone but not too much, and have some redness) this is one of three that she recommned to me. I picked this one because it's made with blueberries. Yum.
Here's a little bit more about this mask from Lush's website
Blueberry-packed maintenance mask
Calm catastrophes: We use calamine powder for its calming and soothing effect. Use often for a smart skincare routine.
Here is what the mask looks like swatched on my skin.
-First I wanted to say that I love Lush because they use all natural ingredients. This mask is made from fresh things, it's vegan and Lush is cruelty free.
-I mentioned before that this is $7 to 2.1 oz. I wanted to touch on this again because I think that is a very good price, and you do get quite a lot product since you don't need too much to cover your face. The down side to this though, is that these only have a shelf life of about 2-3 weeks. They expire because there are no preservatives in these because they are fresh, like the name states. I've used mine about 5 times and am only half way done with it.
-The texture is pretty thick but it's easy to spead over your face.
-These need to be kept in the fridge since they are fresh ingredients, but the coldness gives a really nice cooling effect to your skin. They can also be stored in the freezer to help them last longer.
-I do agree with the claims of this being very soothing and deep cleansing. My face always feels amazing and clean afterwards.
-I can see how this would be great for all skin types too. My always feel hydrated but oil free after I use it.
-I've been using it twice a week, so it's gentle enough to do that as where other masks I've used, I only used once a week.
Over all I am really enjoying this mask! I definitely will repurchase it in the future, but I'm curious about their other fresh masks so I might try out some more first!
