Lush Brazened Honey and Cosmetic Warrior!


I got a little caught up in the shop, and playing around with my camera, and working on new projects!

But, I'm back!

So, working at Lush I'm always tempted to try different things, and I usually do it, whether it's good for my skin type or not, just to see how it feels [it's also the blogger within me!]

Wanna see my Lush collection?

Here are two of Lush's Fresh Face Masks!

Brazened Honey is first up! 

So many people [who work in the shop, and who are customers] love this face mask, and I wanted to try it to see what the hype was all about! I can explain what it's supposed to do to skin, but I wanted to feel what it feels like and see the results! 

For starters, Brazened Honey has tons of honey [shocker!], ground almonds to exfoliate, and lots, and lots of different herbs like rosemary and sage to cleanse! 

It's supposed to be very detoxifying, and helps with getting rid of, and preventing black heads.

I washed my face, dried it, put on my toner, patted my face dry and then applied the face mask. 

You're supposed to leave it on for 5-10 minutes. 

I couldn't leave it on for 30 seconds. my cheeks started to burn, so I immediately rinsed it off my cheeks, but I could leave it on my forehead and chin for a few minutes longer, so I did.

Now, I'm not saying it's going to burn your face, because my skin is different from yours. But, what I am saying is, that my skin is very sensitive, and Brazened Honey was trying to do it's job like it does on everyone else, but my skin wasn't having it! 

I do want to say that my skin was super soft and glowing afterwards though! 

Next up; Cosmetic Warrior!

This mask is supposed to be deep cleaning just like Brazened Honey, but for sensitive people like me! 

It has garlic, tea tree, grapes, honey, and eggs! 

I can read minds, so I know what you all are thinking, "Garlic and eggs? That has to smell freaking gross" Well, it's not as bad as you would think! It's not very pleasant, but it's not going to make you throw up.

This is a very soothing but deep cleaning mask, which is perfect for sensitive skin, and it makes your skin super smooth. Combination and not so sure? No problem! I have, what I call, an oily 'I' zone, which means I'm oily on my forehead, down my nose, and across my chin, which makes an 'I'! The point here is that, the eggs in it [which normally are very hydrating] doesn't make me more oily, my oily-ness seems to stay the same when using this mask, and I've used it many times! I think the everything else that's in it, balances it all out. 

bottom line, very soothing, didn't burn, makes my face super clean and soft! 

What's your favorite Lush face mask?? Which one are you dying to try?
