Lush Guide: Fresh Face Masks

Now that you've determined what your skin type is and what your perfect cleanser is, you can also figure out the best face mask for your skin! LUSHs face masks are great for when your skin needs a little pick me up. Personally, I'm a lover of the Cupcake face mask. I usually use it once a week and I keep it in my fridge when not in use. 

Fresh Face Masks are like the name, made with 100% fresh ingredients! Since they are considered 'fresh', they are only sold in-stores. This means that if you don't live near a LUSH, you're out of luck. No worries! There are plenty of other amazing LUSH products that you can use!

  • Cupcake
    • Chocolate and mint is perfect for troubled teenage skin. Great for calming and toning down redness. It really is hard not to grab a spoon and start eating this sweet confection. My personal favourite! Recommended for those who have oily, troublesome skin.
  • Catastrophe Cosmetic
    • A great starter mask for those with normal skin. Maybe you don't need an extra helping hand but you just want to maintain healthy and glowing skin. Blueberries are packed with vitamins and the added calamine lotion makes any problems disappear.
  • The Sacred Truth
    • As you get older, your skin needs more maintenence and upkeeping. This mask is for those who have more mature skin. Eggs and shea butter help lock in mature skins precious moisture. 
  • Love Lettuce
    • Lavender and almond are perfect for those who suffer from dry skin. This mask will get rid of those icky little flakes and leave your skin smooth and soft. Honey is super moistursing and your dry skin will love to drink it up.
  • BB Seaweed
    • Sensitive skin? Look no further! BB Seaweed contains calamine and loads of exfoliating ingredients. This amazing mask will smooth your skin without causing you to break out due to harsh chemicals or bad ingredients. If you have sensitive skin, the best thing you can do is go all natural! Believe me! 
  • Cosmetic Warrior
    • If you find yourself breaking out and with oily patches and aren't afraid of a little garlic, add this to your arsenal. Cosmetic Warrior uses garlic and tea tree oil to their full potential. Both are amazing at clearing up blemishes, blackheads and tightening your pores. Your skin will be looking fab in no time.

  • Brazened Honey
    • Balance your skin with a little bit of everything. Almond oil moisturises while lime oil acts as an astringent. Perfect for those with combo skin. 
  • Ayesha
    • If your skin is tired, Ayesha will tighten and give your face a boost. Witch hazel has been used as an astringent for agents, so you know this mask will clear up those blemishes in no time.
  • Oatfix
    • Oatmeal is a great way to naturally ex foliate your skin. Oatfix is perfect for those with all skin types. Consider it a more formulated version of the ever popular oatmeal and banana face mask.

If I could give you all one tip, it would be don't turn away from these amazing face masks because of their appearance and smell. I'll admit, some of them aren't that pretty! But they will do amazing things for your face! Plus, if you bring back 5 empty, clean black LUSH pots, you'll get one for free! What are you waiting for?!
