From the very first moment I walked into a LUSH store I was hooked. Over the years I have come to incorporate quite a number of their products into my beauty regime, which also means that I have accumulated A LOT of their black pots. Luckily, LUSH has a great recycling program that allows you to bring in 5 Empty Black Pots in exchange for 1 Fresh Face Mask. This time around I had enough pots for 2 Fresh Face Masks, and while I couldn't stray from my beloved Love Lettuce I did decide to test out BB Seaweed, a face mask that is entirely new to me.
Love Lettuce will always be my ride or die when it comes to LUSH's Fresh Face Masks. Made up of a kaolin clay base to tighten pores and loaded with ground almonds to exfoliate and brighten, your skin will never look more radiant. LUSH also blends in french lavender oil, seaweed and honey to nourish and soften skin, as well as balancing oily T-zones. I love it because the kaolin clay really tightens and minimizes my pores, while the ground almond buffs my skin to reveal a healthy glow. And it doesn't hurt that the scent of the french lavender oil puts me into a total state of bliss after a long work day.
BB Seaweed may not have a wonderful scent like Love Lettuce, but it sure does make your skin look beautiful. Similar to Love Lettuce, this fresh face mask is made up of a kaolin clay base and loaded with ground almonds to exfoliate your skin, revealing a brighter complexion. However, BB Seaweed is better tailored to those with sensitive skin than Love Lettuce is thanks to the inclusion of calming ingredients like aloe vera gel and rose absolute, which can also help to diminish redness. I truly notice a difference in my skin after using this mask; the redness seen in my cheeks almost completely disappears, my complexion is radiant and my skin is left ultra hydrated thanks to the combination of honey and olive oil.
LUSH Fresh Face Masks retail for $6.95CAD and are only available within stores, as they need to be refrigerated and have a 4-week shelf life. What mask is your favourite?
