LUSH Mask of Magnaminty

Tuesday, 18 December 2012

My skin is feeling really aggravated and unhappy right now and this is the product I've been reaching for to make it happy again. LUSH Mask of Magnaminty is a face mask which fights break-outs and troublesome skin. Unlike the Fresh masks, this one has a much longer shelf life which is perfect for me because I always end up wasting some of my Fresh masks by forgetting about them or not using them up before they go 'off''. As you can see, this is a bright green face mask and the consistency is thick but it glides onto the skin quite easily. It contains ground aduki beans, so I like to scrub as I'm washing it off to get a wee bit of gentle exfoliation. The peppermint oil in the mask makes it so refreshing to use and it also stimulates the skin to revitalise dull and tired skin, whilst helping to treat any blemishes. This doesn't dry out my skin at all, which I find can happen when trying to treat break-outs, but instead leaves my skin feeling refreshed, cool and any blemishes are calmed down.

It's not a miracle worker - ie, my spots haven't miraculously disappeared after using this - but it does help to calm break-outs, minimize their appearance and I really do feel like it does something positive to my skin. I bought a smaller 125g pot which costs £4.95, but I'll definitely be investing in the larger 315g pot at £8.75 because of the longer shelf life! I've used the mask maybe 5-6 times already, and my tub is still 3/4 full. You don't need to use a lot of the product, and I tend to use it just on my problem areas (chin, jawline and t-zone).

What do you reach for when your skin is throwing a tantrum?

  1. I am a big fan of their fresh mask but I don't have a store near me. When I visited the store last time, this was what the nice sales associate recommended to me as this has a much longer shelf life. I tried on a generous sample and quite like it. Very minty. I find this very similar to the Catastrophe Cosmetic mask. Has that calming breakout effect.

  2. I hate it when the fresh face mask goes off too. This one looks really good.

  3. Sounds like this makes a real difference to your skin. Its nice that it helps calm your spots without drying out your skin. I love LUSH fresh masks they have such a great range for all skin types. I treat myself to one every couple of months

  15. I love the names of all lush products. Never tried one from Lush but this sounds good. The whacky colour masks are always the best ;)
