$10.95 | LUSH (only available in store)
A few weeks ago, I stopped by my local LUSH store because I wanted to get one of their fresh face masks. I tried some a couple of years ago, but it’s been awhile and I wanted to review one for the blog. As the sales associate explained each one to me, all I could think was “Will I be able to take a picture of this?” Sigh… the life of a blogger. (Side note: I did add actual rice to my mask for my photos in case you were wondering) Well, I ended up choosing the bright blue one called “Don’t Look At Me.” Supposedly after you use this face mask/exfoliator, everyone should be looking at you because it brightens, exfoliates and moisturizes your skin. It contains ground rice, murumuru butter, lemon AND silken tofu which should “soften” your skin.
You must store this mask in the refrigerator and it generally lasts about 2 weeks. Make sure that you check the expiration date on the bottom of the container when purchasing one. Since I don’t want the face mask to spoil, I have been using it twice a week and slathering that puppy on. When you put on the mask straight from the refrigerator, it feels SO GOOD. It has been exceptionally hot lately, so it definitely helped to cool down my face. I polished off the last bit tonight while watching the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills… my fav!
After waiting for the mask to dry (about 15 minutes), I started rinsing it off with warm water. The great thing is the 2 for 1 special you get with this mask. After you are done letting the mask sit on your face, it’s time to get some exfoliating action from the ground rice and lemon.
Final Thoughts: The mask definitely made my skin feel super silky and soft. I am literally touching my face right now as I write this review. Is my skin more vibrant? Eh, not sure if it LOOKS vibrant, but it does feel like a baby’s bottom. My face feels dry immediately after use, so I’m not sure if the murumuru butter really helps to moisturize it. Also, the smell of the mask got to me a bit as it wasn’t as pleasant as their soap. I give this a 3.5/5. LUSH’s fresh face masks are fun to try, but not something that I will be purchasing often.
*Tip: If you bring back 5 black containers (only the black containers which specifically state this on the lid), you get a free fresh face mask! BUT, I like to use the empty containers to store my lotions and soaps in when traveling.*
