One of my favourite things to do on a Sunday is to relax with a facemask on mentally preparing myself for Monday morning and the week ahead. I've tried a whole variety of face masks over the years but I always come back to the Lsuh ones. So I thought I would put together a list of 3 Lush Face Masks you need to try including Oatifix, Catastophe Cosmetic and Mask of Magnaminty (Don't worry Cupcake you still have a special place in my heart).
Probably my favourite, and the one I've been using the longest, is Oatifix (I've even recreated it with my own DIY). Oatifix is the mask I run too whenever my face is in particular need of hydration because it just leaves my skin feeling nourished. The oatmeal and ground almonds are also great at exfoliating the skin to help eliminate any of my pesky dry patches. The only thing I don't like so much is that it's quite crumbly so when I'm applying it to my face, it can fall on the floor. But overall, I highly recommend this one to anyone with dry skin.
Another one of Lush's Fresh Face Masks you have to try is Catastrophe Cosmetic. This mask is great at calming the skin, so whenever my skin feels inflamed or sensitive, out comes this bad boy! It is also slightly exfoliating (which is always something I look for), so again helps with those dry patches, but not as well as Oatifix. I do need to moisturise after using Catastrophe Cosmetic but once I have, my skin is left feeling smooth and relaxed. I feel like this one goes on my easier than Oatifix and a small amount really goes a long way!
Mask of Magnaminty
The newest addition to my skincare routine is the much raved about Mask of Magnaminty. This one is a little bit different to the others as it is what Lush call 'self-preserving' so it doesn't need to be kept in the fridge or have the short lifespan that the other two masks have, which is great because sometimes I end up using the other masks just for the sake of it because they will expire. The is a multi-purpose mask that can be used on your face or body, although I've only used it on my face so far. I tend to use this mask when I have a breakout as Mask of Magnaminty gently cleanses the skin and really works to calm my spots down. Do you know what the best bit is though? The smell! Oh I love the minty freshness...
