Hello, my loves!
Today I am going to be doing a review of the mask of magnaminty. This is one of the most popular masks from the brand Lush Cosmetics and it is one of the masks I have returned to time after time when my skin is more blemish prone.
First of all – if you haven’t heard of Lush, it is a cruelty-free, vegetarian based brand which uses a lot of fresh ingredients to make their products. There are many products that I would recommend from Lush, but the one I started with and the one I keep returning to is the mask of magnaminty.
The mask of magnaminty is a mask made up of the following active ingredients:
Kaolin clay and peppermint oil : rid the skin of impurities
Ground aduki beans : exfoliate the skin
Vanilla absolute : calms redness
Honey : provides moisture and antibacterial properties
Because Lush uses active, and mostly natural ingredients it is recommended you keep an eye on the expiration date because the products do tend to turn more frequently than those bought at the drugstore or department store. Pro tip: put your mask in the fridge to keep it cool and maintain the ingredients.
To apply, you simply add a layer of the mask to your skin, wait until dry, and then remove with a wet, warm washcloth. The mask is slightly abrasive so you skin may be left looking slightly red, but do not worry it will fade quickly and you will be left with soft, and glowing skin. I feel this mask is best done only once or twice at most a week because the mask is truly ridding your skin from toxins and it could become too harsh to do regularly.
The mask retails for $15/$30/$40 USD depending on the size of the container you purchase. I recommend buying a small container if you are using the mask for the first time because it does have the peppermint essential oil in it and it could be too much for someone with sensitive skin.
If you’re looking for a new mask, I recommend going to Lush and at least trying it out in a sample. The atmosphere at Lush is like no other that I’ve experienced in my time of shopping for skincare or cosmetics. They have an amazing staff and are happy to help with any questions you may have or concerns about your skin.
So enjoy your Sunday pamper, do a mask, paint your nails, have some lemon tea, and happy beginning of autumn to all of you as well!
If you have any questions or have used this mask before, let me know in the comments!
