I love LUSH. Love. Too much. Love the store, love the smells, love the awesome people who work at the store closest to me (Hello, Mohegan Sun Casino!), love the online Kitchen with the cool rare products, love that LUSH supports some good causes and uses locally sourced ingredients. Love. AND now I'll stop. You get the point, yes? :)
One of my favorite items from LUSH are the Fresh Face Masks. You can only get them in store! They must be stored in the refridgerator and, according to the package, they are only good (read: fresh) for a few weeks.
There are about a dozen, I believe, that treat different skin issues. I have tried Oatifix, Rosy Cheeks, Brazened Honey, and this one, The Sacred Truth.
According to the website, "The Sacred Truth contains a powerful combination of rich, softening ingredients like linseed, eggs and shea butter to deeply moisturize and nutritious wheat grass, papaya, green tea and ginseng root to restore essential vitamins and brighten skin."
I love this one! The papaya/melon/clean smell is a standout. The mask is smooth to apply and is not chunky (Oatifix, I am talking to you) and it does not leave any weird bits on your skin. It dries pretty quickly, and it does tend to start to flake if you move your mouth and facial features (am I the only one who makes funny faces in the mirror when I have a mask on? Yes? Hmm, ok, moving on).
When I washed this off, my face was so soft! My normally reddish cheeks were soothed and not at all red. This is a great mask for my skin and I would definitely re-purchase this product.
