Good morning. I hardly ever give bad reviews for Lush products, so it’s with a heavy heart today that I write my first negative post about the brand. Scandalous! After a bad incident with a new product a few weeks ago that left my skin not looking its finest, I thought I’d treat myself to a fresh face mask. Sounded like a good idea, right? Not so. What It Claims: So the claims of this product are pretty straightforward. It’s formulated for acne prone skin, claiming to soothe troubled skin.
What It Did: Despite its claims to soothe skin, this dried mine out, only irritating it more. In addition, I got two new breakouts after using it. Thinking that this might be a fluke, I decided to use this product again. No new breakouts, but my skin felt worse for the wear after using.
Application: Another thing I wanted to say about this product is that I did not like the application at all! Compared to the other masks I have used, this one felt slimy and refused to go on evenly. Beyond that, this is formulated with garlic. While the smell isn’t too bad for me, others have commented that it smells absolutely awful to them when their skin warms up
Cruelty-Free: Yes, it has at least that much going for it
So what do you think? Have you tried this mask? Let me know in the comments below
