Lush - Catastrophe Cosmetic Face Mask - £5.95

Well, the first thing that I am going to say is that, I look fit in this mask. Haha. Not. However, this is my favourite face mask by far from Lush. It is so soothing and smells great. Firstly there is one new trick that I have discovered with the applications of these masks and that is to lathering it on with an old foundation brush. This stops the product caking up your hands and getting everywhere. With the Lush masks they have to go in the fridge as they are fresh. This also makes them really cold and refreshing when you first put them onto your skin. I then leave it on for around 15minutes when I gentley exfoliate the mask off. I then rinse with a muslin cloth to make sure that no remains of the mask are left behind. 

I have tried around 6-7 different face masks from Lush, because I am a little obsessed, however this Catastrophe Cosmetic has to be my favourite. I have combinational and blemish proned skin. I find that the blueberries calm any redness around my spots and when I exfoliate it into my skin, I feel that the mask cleanses deep into my pores. I always find that the morning after using this, that my face looks and feels a lot clearer and my make-up smooths onto my skin better too! 

I personally think that the mask isn't too expensive for what it is - true, that they don't last long but I think that is just the problem you face with a fresh mask. I personally don't mind it really as my skin enjoys have the freshness on it. :)
