Fresh Face Masks: Lush's Brazened Honey

I had been meaning to make a trip to Lush for months, ever since my last one. Well, a few weeks ago I took it upon myself to take a solo trip to the mall. I was very proud that I was in and out in less than an hour. It's amazing how fast you can shop when you know what you want/need and when there is no one else with you to slow you down.

I stopped in LUSH as my second store of the day and probably spent the most time in there. I knew I wanted a face mask, and a few bath bombs and that's exactly what I got.

I got a bath bomb I got is Sex Bomb, and I also got a Bubble Bar (which I already used half) that I don't know the name of and can't seem to find on the LUSH website.



I've been addicted to face masks recently and knew I wanted one of the fresh LUSH ones. They have an expiration date, are freshly made, and need to be refrigerated.

I wanted to try the Cup o Coffee mask but my Lush didn't have that one. After looking at all the masks available, I figured the Brazened Honey Mask was best for me. It says it will revitalize tired skin, with herbs and spices, has ground almonds to polish, and honey to moisturize.





The expiration date on my mask is Sept 8th but I still have a hefty amount left after using it three times so I think I may go a little over the expiration date -- even though that probably isn't the best idea.

The mask smells fresh, the moment you open the tub you can smell the freshness of the herbs, honey, and almonds. It's not that bad but I'm not too keen on the fresh smell.

Also, from keeping the mask in the refrigerator, it's extremely cold when you first apply it which I LOVE. It's so refreshing and nice.

The texture is definitely rough, which I think is because it's packed so tightly and because it's so fresh.

I apply it on my forehead, cheeks, nose, and chin, and then leave it on for about 10-12 minutes. I like to feel as if the mask hardened a little bit to make sure I'm getting the most out of it. Because of the fresh ingredients, this mask doesn't get extremely hard to the point where your face can't move an inch, like the other store bought masks.

After the allotted time, I remove the mask with a wash cloth soaked in warm water, and my skin feels clean. It doesn't feel overly clean but a nice refreshed clean. Like I said, I've used this mask three times... I don't know if I notice a significant difference in the evenness of my skin tone, but I do think it helps deep clean.

I had a lot of breakouts which seemed to be whiteheads and clogged pores and with using this mask, in conjunction with my other skincare routine, I saw a significant decrease and they haven't come back.

I think this face mask has sealed the deal for my love affair with Lush. I need and want everything. I will for sure be going back for more face masks and maybe some more skincare items.

PS: If you're a LUSH addict like I'm quickly becoming, don't forget to save your black tubs because once you have 5 empty tubs, you can bring them back to LUSH and get a free face mask! That is a good deal.

What other products from LUSH do you think I should try?
