LUSH CATASTROPHE COSMETIC FRESH FACE MASK REVIEW.
First of let me start by wishing everyone a very very happy new year. Hope you had a great holiday week and though it sucks to be back to routine… well, we’ve got to!!
If there is one thing I love and religiously follow in a skincare, it’s applying a face mask. I kid you not!! I am hopeless in applying moisturizer or serum or even body butters
(Although I hoard them like a crazy cat-lady!). So I’m always trying various masks and even whip out stuff from the fridge and it’s no surprise that LUSH and TBS are my hangouts to find them And on one such visit I got this.
LUSH calls it as :BLUEBERRY INFUSED MAINTENANCE MASK.
Prevent disasters by taking regular care with our deep cleaning blueberry mask, Catastrophe Cosmetic. Use this one weekly as a deep cleansing treatment to kick off your regular skincare routine.
Contents : blueberries, soothing chamomile, irish moss, almond oil, calamine powder and talc among others. The ingredients are supposed to act as an antiseptic, calm and soothe the skin and overall reduce inflammation with essential vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.
Cost : $8 for 75gms
My Experience with the Product: I was mainly looking for something to soothe my winter-harmed flaky skin. I am so happy that the SA suggested I get this. This actually has little bits of blueberry which melt on your skin as I blend it on my face. For some reason that made me giggle. It also has a distinguished odour. not pleasant or unpleasant, just a smell. As soon as I applied it, my skin started to feel more calm and the inflammation I was feeling for a couple of days was cooling off. After 10 mins I washed it off with lukewarm water and was pleased to notice that It did NOT dry my skin like a lot other masks do. Also, that one zit troubling me was looking much better now. That evening my skin looked healthy,radiant and Luminized. Love this stuff!!!
The only cons I found was:
- KInda expensive in terms of quantity.
- It’s a fresh mask so the shelf life is 3 weeks (putting this in con because most times I can’t finish in 3 weeks :()
- DIY ppl can whip this up easily. (I should try that).
Verdict : I really like this mask and I will definitely recommend it. IMO, its great for winters and works for all skin types.
So What’s your favourite face mask? Do you like the “squeaky clean” feel, or do you prefer your skin to feel more moisturised? What’s you favourite mask? Let me know in the comments below
