LUSH: Battle Of The Face Masks

LUSH: Battle Of The Face Masks
LUSH: Battle Of The Face Masks
 Having tried numerous LUSH face masks in the past I thought I now have a fair amount of knowledge to write a post on what face masks do what and maybe help out what one is best suited for your skin type too. I have oily to imperfected skin thanks to my Dad! It is not all bad I guess because I won't get wrinkles as fast! But, it comes with a price and that price is buying numerous face masks to treat any imperfections or oiliness!

Catastrophe Cosmetic
This is a recent face mask I've tried so my knowledge on this will be up to date whereas my others will be based upon previous posts! So far this mask has been amazing for reducing any redness or dry skin even though I am oily skinned I still get dry patches off products. I did find it a little hard to remove from my face and it took longer time to apply which is probably my own fault because I tipped all the liquid out of the pot - DON'T DO THIS. Other than that it has been great! This smells like Palma Violet sweets so it is a very pleasant scent to have on the skin and it comes out in a blue consistency! Once washed off my face it already feels incredibly soft as though I have drunk a gallon of water typical comparison to say but it did! I didn't notice any results regarding my imperfections straight away but you do start to see a slow result the more you use it, my redness was reduced the next morning and my face looked a lot healthier! - I am still waiting for some results regarding my oily skin.

Love Lettuce (full review)
Out of all the face masks I have tried from LUSH this one is my favorite purely because it has an exfoliating texture to it which is great for oily skin! This did everything I expected a face mask to do: reduce redness, access oil, any blemishes and moisturized don't ask for much do I?. BUT, that is not the best news...I was able to see fast results within the first use which is incredible and tells me a lot about the mask. My face looked and felt a lot healthier within the first use and when I did use this it smelt pleasant and sat nicely on my skin. This mask is the easiest to wash off probably because it has the exfoliating formulation. I definitely recommend this face mask if you have oily to spot prone skin. Holy grail? I think so.

Cosmetic Warrior (full review)
I think from personal preferences this mask was the one I found smelt the worst. The other two smelt pleasant and refreshing this has abstract of garlic in which is probably the reason for the scent - despite the scent it's pretty good! This face mask has tea tree oil in which again is supposedly good for breakouts but, me and tea tree don't see eye to eye at times. I never experience much results from tea tree products but I definitely did with this face mask. Very similar to Love Cosmetics in the sense I saw fast results however I found this face mask only focuses on reducing any redness and adding a healthier fix. I don't recall seeing many results regarding my oiliness but it definitely reduced any redness I had, so if you get a lot of blotchy, red skin this could be a shot to try! 

Hopefully these personal thoughts have helped you decide which face mask might be best for you to try! I love LUSH face masks I have not used one that has let me down. I still want to try the chocolate/cupcake face mask sometime soon so I may update this post in the future!

What is your favorite LUSH face mask?

  5. Mine is Cupcake.. albeit the only one I have tried from Lush it was brilliant, so soothing and smelled delicious. I think it's brilliant how you can trade in black pots for a free facemask .. I love Lush! www.inkandnonsense.blogspot.co.uk

  13. I LOVE Cosmetic Warrior, it cleans my skin up literally overnight. However, I do agree that it smells awful! My boyfriend doesn't come near me for hours after using it!
