I have been a huge fan of Lush for such a long time. I love that all their products are fresh, handmade and ethically sourced. My skin can quite sensitive so it’s great to know exactly what is in each product. I love Lush bath bombs and soaps but these two products are skincare favourites of mine that never disappoint and I will continue to repurchase.
Mask of Magnaminty
Whenever my skin is in need of some TLC, I always reach for Mask of Magnaminty. It is great for treating breakouts due to its antibacterial and soothing elements. As you can probably guess… the mask smells minty, but not too overpowering and has a slight tingle when applied to the skin. I currently have the self-preserving version of this mask, which means the product keeps itself clean without the use of added synthetic preservatives. This version has extra honey in it, giving the mask a thicker consistency, this also means the mask doesn’t dry onto your skin the same way the original does. The only downside for me with Lush products are the expiry dates. I don’t use face masks all the time and I haven’t been able to use the 125g size product before the use by date.
For a ‘spa experience’ apply this product with a clean foundation brush, it is so relaxing. Using the product this way also saves your nails from getting dirty. I’m sure the Mask of Magnaminty was one the original faced masks released by Lush. Now they sell lots of different scents, I really want to try the Cupcake mask.
Ingredients: Honey, Kaolin, Bentonite Gel, Talc, Glycerine, Organic Ground Aduki Beans, Evening Primrose Seeds, Peppermint Oil, Tagetes Oil, Vanilla Absolute, Limonene, Perfume, Chlorophyllin – Lush (See here)
This mask costs £6.50 for 125g – This is the best size to purchase if you haven’t used the product before.
Popcorn Lip Scrub
If you have ever purchased something from Lush before, you have most probably seen these at the till. These lip scrubs come in little jars in the most tempting flavours: mint, bubblegum, popcorn & honey. Not only do they feel great and exfoliate your lips but they taste good too!
Ingredients: Caster Sugar, Organic Jojoba Oil, Fine Sea Salt, Polenta, Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, Popping Candy Flavour – Lush (See here)
This lip scrub costs £5.75 for 25g – Yes when you see the size of the container you are thinking, how much! But this does last so long. If you are going to try your first few products from Lush, I would probably recommend choosing something else. I have made lip scrubs before at home, they just don’t smell as nice, but pretty much did the same job. Nevertheless I can’t help but pick one of these up when shopping at Lush.
