I'm a sucker for a Lush fresh face mask.
Whenever I'm feeling like a little pamper session and to treat my skin, I head down to Lush and pick up a new fresh face mask, the fresh ones are £7.50 each. Which I always think is really reasonable, so long as you get a good use out of them. As they are fresh, they need to be kept in the fridge and have an expiry date which is usually about a month. You can buy non-fresh face masks, if you're looking for something a little more long lasting.
This time I decided to try something new. I went for Catastrophe Cosmetic rather than my usual faves Cupcake or Oatifix, which is described as:
"A calming and moisturising fresh face mask packed with blueberries, calamine and chamomile, rose, and almond oils to soothe and soften the skin. We use wholesome blueberries as they are rich in vitamins and minerals, including the antioxidant vitamins A, C, and E that help to protect the skin from damage."
The thing that sold me, when sampling a few in store, was the instant smell of blueberries. The mask itself when applied feels really calming and afterwards my skin had some much needed moisture and felt super soft. Which is just what you need in winter.
I like to apply my mask just before a bath, which again is usually filled with lots of Lush products, as you can see from the picture below, which included a sprinkling of a Creamy Candy bubble bar and a Ickle Baby Bot, which I bought just because it was so frickin' cute (and only £1.95)
