I’m still a newbie to Lush- not an expert by any means. However, over the years I’ve tried a few things and have been impressed with everything I’ve tried. Their fresh skincare- you know that part of the store with the delicious looking bowls full of creamy goodness? Yes?! Well they’re face masks! Recently at the Bloggers United Au 3rd Birthday Party, I had the pleasure of seeing the Lush Brazened Honey Fresh Face Mask* being made in person and learn about all the goodness that they put in it.
What Lush says about Brazened Honey Fresh Face Mask;
“Wake up your skin with this fresh face mask containing fresh fennel, ginger root, parsley and coriander to detox and stimulate. We use a sage, rosemary and juniperberry infusion with cardamom and clove bud oils for their antiseptic qualities, fresh lime juice to cleanse the skin and free range eggs, honey and almond oil to soothe and moisturise. Smooth a generous layer of this mask onto your face and leave for 10 to 15 minutes.”
- Retails for $13.95 for 60 grams (a small jar)
- All those amazing ingredients mentioned above, well I can say for a fact that they use all those fresh ingredients when creating the Brazened Honey Face Mask!
- Its also natural and cruelty free, however not vegan as it contains honey. However the honey that is used it sourced ethically.
- The texture is quite interesting, it feels a bit exfoliating and is very yellow. The exfoliating texture is not rough at all so don’t be alarmed.
- It was recommended to use this face mask after you’ve been sick as its anti-bacterial and brightening.
- Because these fresh face masks only last 3 weeks when refrigerated its best you apply a thick layer to your face. This is the one time when more is better.
- The down side of having to refrigerate it is that when you apply it in winter its bloody cold on your face! #firstworldproblems
- I tend to leave the face mask on for 20 minutes. While it does dry down, it doesn’t become super stiff like traditional clay masks.
- To rinse off I start by using some warm water to massage the product into my skin. And to remove the remainder I find using a muslin cloth is best. The downside of using a cloth is the masks stains it yellow. If you soak your cloth the yellow will go, but just be warned.
- After my first use my skin did look a bit brighter.
- After regular use, 2 to 3 times a week I found my skin looked noticeably brighter and clearer. When I first started using this mask I had a few pesky spots and I found that this mask helped clear up my skin without drying it.
Overall I was really happy with how my skin looked after regular use of this mask. My only negative feedback is because its fresh you have to use it in 3 weeks. I found I wasted half of the tub and I would have liked to have kept it for longer like traditional face masks.
If you’re on the market for a new mask but don’t want to spend too much you have to check out Brazened Honey! Just make sure to use it a couple of times a week to get your moneys worth.
