Review: Lush's Catastrophe Cosmetic face mask

 Well hello to you my reader chums! I've been obsessed with Lush's facemasks for years and most things I've tried from Lush. It's certainly been the brand of the beauty community since I began blogging and a brand I'll continue to use in years to come. This time of year, my Lush obsession comes out in full force as it's the season where I'll take lots of baths, utilise pamper nights a bit more and moisturise heavily.

I used to be obsessed with both the 'Brazened Honey' and the 'Cupcake' mask, however, on my last trip to lush I wanted to try the 'Catastrophe Cosmetic' mask out. My skin had been breaking out lately and I thought this can be the mask to sort it out, or at least calm it in some way. I've heard a lot of good things about this mask and wanted to see if it was worth the hype.

Review: Lush's Catastrophe Cosmetic face mask

What is the Catastrophe Cosmetic mask?

The Catastrophe Cosmetic is designed as a calming and moisturising mask. It's packed with plenty of fresh ingredients including calamine, antioxidant blueberries and balancing rose. The mask is ideal for those with sensitive skin and needs a little help feeling balanced and mattified.

Texture and scent

All Lush facemasks are designed to be kept in the fridge, that's the beauty of them and it adds to the texture when they're applied. This mask, in particular, is blue in colour and slightly abrasive as it's swept onto the skin. It's also really cool in temperature which adds to the lovely sensation of application. The texture is firm but soft enough to spread over the skin.

The scent of the mask I would describe as fresh with an underlying smell of blueberries and fruit. It also has a subtle rose tone flowing through it which is ever so moreish. 

How it feels on the skin

The mask is like heaven on my skin. I like to leave the mask on for a good fifteen minutes to give the full effect. When it's on my skin, it's so light and the fresh scent lingers under my nose that I can't help but love it.

Lasting effects of the mask 

Once I wash off the mask, my skin instantly feels incredibly soft, replenished and moisturised. It's the perfect pick me up on a day when my skin hasn't been feeling the best. I found the results to be even better when I used it at least twice a week, and it gave me the opportunity to have more time for my skincare.

Overall thoughts

Overall, I absolutely adore this mask and would highly recommend giving it a go if your skin needs a little boost at the minute. It's become my favourite mask out of all the ones I use and I'll definitely be repurchasing again and again when it runs out.

I hope you enjoyed this post. What's your favourite face mask?

  7. I have to be honest, I'm not a fan of Lush but that's down to being pounced on as soon as you set foot in store, not the products themselves. This mask sounds gorgeous though, a real treat, I might have to brave our local Lush!
