A quick storytime leads up to how I acquired this mask: Basically I went in to Sephora the other day to pick up my VIB Rouge card since they RAN OUT during the holidays. I was browsing their masks just to see what was new when a sales lady began trying to convince me to buy a clay mask from the Perricone M.D. line. That is, until she told me it was $96CAD!
I know it’s good to invest in your skin, but it was not a $96-mask-impulse-purchase kind of day. I’d rather invest in a moisturizer or serum that doesn’t get washed off. I left without satisfying my craving to try a new mask.
A few days later, I was out doing errands and realized I had parked by a Lush, and Lush has masks that aren’t $96. I went in and immediately was drawn to a new blue mask called ‘Don’t Look At Me’. Loved the drama queen name, loved the blue, loved the $10.95CAD price!
This mask is meant to brighten and exfoliate the skin. It is formulated with alpha-hydroxy acid, lemon, and brown rice. The blue colour is basically added for fun. I was a bit worried it might stain my skin but it didn’t! It must be kept in the fridge and you should get about 5 masks from the pot, more if you stretch it. As always with Lush, it is cruelty free.
-Smells like Fruit Loops. I’m not even kidding.
-It doesn’t feel rough on the skin when you apply it or remove it.
-Made my skin feel really soft
-My usual red patches were totally calm
Wow I love this mask. I don’t think I’ve EVER given a product a 5/5 on my blog before. So glad I skipped out of Sephora and bought this instead. I love Lush masks and how they are made with fresh ingredients and actually have to be put in the fridge.
I honestly noticed a difference in my skin and I think it must’ve been from the AHA and the way it gently exfoliates, along the brightening effects of lemon. I literally said “daaaaaang” in the mirror. Did I mention this makes for the best selfies? Skip the overpriced preservative-laden masks at the makeup counter and go to Lush.
