. I usually like to do this mask (or any other mask for that matter) after using the conair spa face steamer. This helps to open up the pores and draw out any gross dirt and impurities and makes ur skin soft like a freshly peeled hard boiled egg :3 This also helps to enhance the effectiveness of the masks and products that you are going to use afterwards :D so anyway, back to the mask. This blueberry infused mask claims that "the blue bulbs are packed with vitamins, with a gentle calamine base to cleanse the skin without stripping it of it's natural oils." For a quick go to mask, I felt that this mask did a reasonable job in deep cleansing my skin as it did look less irritated and felt fresher afterwards. But like most other face masks, the effects only lasted for like less than a day or so. I suggest to use these before going to bed when you have a special event or date the next day...you will definitely feel a difference when you wake up the next morning ;)
✔The smell- smells like freshly ground blueberries...and a hint of black current?
✔Deep cleaning effect- love the cool tingly feeling as the mask hardens.
✔Makes skin smoother
✖Messy application- thick and hard to apply. drags on the skit a bit. careful. dun go near your delicate eye areas!
✖Ash like fall out after the mask dries - do not touch your face as the mask dries, you will get white ash all over ur clothes like you have dandruff @@~
✖Short shelf life- all the ingredients are natural and freshly made, therefore do not last that long.
✖Hard to get a hold of- Since these masks are always made fresh, they are not available for sale on their website and they only come to the store like once a week. And every time they are sold out within like a couple of days. So if you want to look for a specific mask, like this one, its better to call and check with your local lush stores before u go in all excited and just end up with disappointment.
To sum up, the likes > the dislikes, and i did enjoy this mask as a treat for my post-examified skin, but it's not something that i absolutely LOVE and would rave about. When i go to lush next time, i would much rather look into the other face masks that i haven't tried, because i am still just new to the lush brand but am totally intrigued by just how fresh and organic all their masks are. and o yea remember to keep all your black tubs after u finish your masks because if u bring back 5 black pots, lush will give you the 6th one free!! hell yea, now who doesn't love free shit <3
