I am a huge Lush fan and go through enough black pots that I often quality for a free fresh face mask. For those who are new to Lush, many of their products come in black pots, if you collect 5 empty ones you can trade it in for a fresh face mask of your choice! It's a great incentitive to keep coming back.
I was always a little bit put off by the Fresh face masks as I presumed you only got one use as it would go off but how wrong was I. If you keep the face mask in your fridge it will last around 1 week and is big enough for around 4 uses depending how thick or thin you like to apply it. The product is 'fresh' because it contains no preservatives but only fresh ingredients, making it much better and healthier for your skin as it contains loads of vitamins, minerals and goodness that other face masks don't, as many use synthetic flavours and contain no goodness just nasty chemicals.
I was drawn to this face mask as I am very fond of blueberries and liked it's purple colour. This product contains fresh blueberries and has chunks of them in the product making it looks like a tasty desert.
Blueberries are an important ingredient as they contain vitmains and minerals and are rich in antioxidants which are beficial to the skin. They not only help to reduce inflamation on your face but also act as a mild antiseptic. Calamine is another important ingredient to rescue your skin which is combined with Chamomile to soothe the skin and irish Moss helps to cleanse whilst Almond oil gently adds softens.
I loved putting this product on my skin. Always clean your face first to remove dirt and apply to a damp face. It has like picking up a really thick yoghurt or a nice creamy desert which has a wonderful purple colour with chunks of Blueberries in it. It feels nice and cool on my skin and smelt amazing.
It did not sting or feel bad in any way, it actually feel lovely and fresh. It seemed to tighten slightly when it dried a litte, but it didn't go rock solid which was great.
I left it on for around 5 minutes as I was using it in the shower whilst trying 'Stepping Stone' and 'Glorious Mud' but if i was in the bath i often leave it on a good 20 minutes.
It's so easy to wash off and afterwards my skin felt thoroughly cleansed, refreshed and revitalised. My skin was so soft to the touch and smelt fantastic. My skin looked healthy and glowed.
I would definitely use this again. One pot to buy, costs £4.95 in store for a 75g pot or £6.45 online due to it being fresh it needs shipping out much quicker. Or save 5 black pots and get it for free.
Summary: Best used in the bath with a nice glass of wine! or pop for the teenagers!
