LUSH // Mask of Magnaminty Cleanser Review

Hey guys! I went to the new opening of Lush in New Orleans last week, which was so exciting because I’ve been seeing their products all over the internet and the stores look so incredibly cute. And as a fan of all things organic and natural, I fell in love immediately with the fruit and clay masks, homemade exfoliants and scrubs, bath bombs, and basically everything that was in there. The staff were so incredibly kind and helpful, and I would have gladly spent my whole day there.

 

 

 

 

One of my dreams is to have a makeup or skincare brand one day, and visiting Lush really sparked that desire. I’m not afraid to dream big, and neither should you guys…^^
So while I was there, I picked up the Mask of Magnaminty mask, which the attendant told me wasn’t a daily facial but actually a deep cleanser, great for blemishes, flaky or dry skin, or to use as a good skin pick me up. The scent is amazing- it smells just like mint chocolate chip ice-cream, and looks like it too.

For those who don’t know, Lush is known for its all natural cosmetics, meaning there are no chemicals and unknown substances going into your skin. The ingredients in the mask include honey (known as the ultimate skin softener), peppermint oil (hence the minty fragrance), aduki beans (to exfoliate), and vanilla absolute ( to combat redness.) All ingredients you can find in your pantry. 🙂

The store attendant recommended me to do a steam facial before using the mask, because the steam really opens up your pores, thus making the mask twice as effective. So after a 5 minute steam facial (which is just taking a bowl of steaming hot water, putting your face over it, and covering your head with a towel), I cleansed my skin, and applied a good amount of the mask on my face, starting with the t-zone area and working my way through. The only thing I felt was a slight tingly sensation. There was no irritation whatsoever, and after a minute or so the mask started to harden.

I set the timer for 15 minutes, and then washed it off with the warm water left from my steam facial ( recycling, aha!), scrubbing gently in circular motions with two fingers. As soon as I washed the mask off and toweled dry, my skin was drastically smoother. I didn’t experience any dryness, which is what a lot of masks I’ve tried previously have resulted in.

This mask was definitely what I needed for my skin, especially with the cold weather and it appearing especially dull these past few weeks. I think I’m going to add this to my skincare essentials, haha.

I give this mask a 4.5/5. The only con about it is the product is a bit messy and gets everywhere, so be sure to push your hair back. Due to it being completely organic, Lush products are a bit on the pricey side. I bought the small sized mask, which was $14. The normal sized is priced at $25.95. If you’re interested in buying this mask, you can check it out at the official Lush site or find a Lush near you. 🙂

Lots of love,

Keliee

P.S: I’m currently editing my Skincare Routine Winter Edition video, where I actually do the steam facial and put the mask on for the first time. It’ll probably be up sometime this weekend, so look for that for a more in-depth demonstration. 🙂

No matter how much it sounded, this post is definitely NOT sponsored. I purchased the item with my own money, with no affiliation to Lush whatsoever. As always, all thoughts and opinions are mine.
