Lush BB Seaweed Fresh Face Mask: REVIEW

Lush BB Seaweed Fresh Face MaskFor softening, cooling and reducing redness.

Instructions

In the tub

Fresh mask

Dried mask

Ingredients


Lush BB Seaweed Fresh Face Mask £5.95/75g (buy here)

Lush describe it as:
"Honey, seaweed and aloe vera to soften and soothe. Olive oil to moisturise. Fresh rose petals and rose absolute to reduce redness. Rosemary oil to regenerate the skin. All of this held together with kaolin, ground almonds and millet flakes - so when you wash this off you are also gently exfoliating and removing dead skin."

I bought this from the store in the Trafford Centre in Manchester on a trip the other week with my friend Kirsty. As this is my first Lush face mask I asked the lady in the store to help me out. She was very friendly and after explaining what I was looking for she chose three face masks. 
Now let me tell you, seeing the face masks in those silver bowls was not appealing considering I didn't know what to expect. I was used to pumping a small amount on to my hand rather than digging into a pot so I was a little taken aback by the sight. The lovely woman explained what each one did and the ingredients inside. After much thought I decided to go for the BB Seaweed one.

The thought of keeping this in the fridge with the rest of my food was quite odd! But the lady said that it was to keep it fresh as there are no preserves in the masks. 
Putting the mask on your face is a little scary at first because the mask is so cold. The thought of applying it kind of puts me off, but you could always leave it out of the fridge for a bit so that it reaches room temperature.
The mask has both big and little bits of seaweed in which freaked me out (I don't know why!) I didn't put any of the larger bits on my face - I left them in the tub. 
The mask goes on white and dries in a sort of clear-ish way. The bits of almonds and flakes become more visible once the mask has dried too.
Also, I don't know why I wasn't expecting it - but the mask dries hard. As in you can't move your face. I guess I should have realised this would happen as it is a mask after all but it just didn't cross my mind (duh!)
Once the mask has come off my skin is left feeling baby soft. The radiance side to it... I don't really see a huge difference, but then again I'm doing it at night where the lighting isn't too good.
I'd say that if you apply this mask twice a week like I do then it should last you around a month or so, maybe more depending upon how thick you layer it.

For just over £5 I would recommend this product - especially if you're a newbie to Lush masks like myself!
Oh and they really are freshly made! This one was made on the 20th of May, and I purchased it on the 21st!


Have you tried any of the Lush Fresh Face Masks?

  1. I'm also a newbie to lush, and was wondering what is good in lush. May try this face mask out, I've read seaweed pulls out the toxins in your skin, so hopefully it will help with blemishes!xx

  2. I love the fresh face masks from Lush, but I've only really tried a few which are for combating oily skin, so I need to give this one a go! xo
