I mentioned this slightly in my Bourjois 1.2.3. perfect foundation review, but, just for the record; I have ‘problem skin’ – uneven skin tone, imperfections, scarring…it’s all going on for me, lately, and as a result, I am constantly on the look-out for ‘miracle’ products that promise to either soothe my skin or combat those ‘problem areas’ without being too harsh.
Lush’s Cosmetic Warrior fresh face mask contains a blend of white grapes, garlic, honey and fresh eggs which promises to do just this, fighting against outbreaks without stripping the skin of its natural oils or drying it out.
I have to admit, I was dreading trying out this mask for the first time; the reviews and comments on the Lush website suggest the smell’s quite unbearable, but I have to say, I really didn’t have an issue with it. It’s not pleasant, don’t get me wrong, but it smells no worse than any Tea Tree products I’ve used in the past, and the results make 10 minutes of a slightly unpleasant aroma so worthwhile.
From the first use, I saw noticeable results in my skin; it appeared more even and less dull, and a few areas which had been inflamed before I used the mask were much calmer and less angry-looking. Whilst it did feel a little drying, initially, a slightly-thicker-than-normal layer of moisturiser solved this, no problem.
I’ve since used this product for just over a fortnight, and I have to admit, my skin’s looking better than it has in years; whilst it hasn’t quite given me a flawless complexion, and I’m nowhere near ready to banish the concealer, it’s given my skin the boost I’d hoped for, and honestly, I’d recommend it to anyone who’s looking for something to combat imperfections.
Lush’s ‘Cosmetic Warrior’ fresh face mask is available from all Lush stores, and online for £5.95.
As the Lush fresh face masks tend to have a relatively short
shelf-life, in comparison to most beauty products, I tend to use them
once every three days or so, and usually find I run out just before the
expiry date, 9 times out of 10.
