Over the past few months, my skin had started to feel clogged and irritated. This is probably due to the amount of suncream I have been applying daily while travelling. So, while I was in Sydney I popped into Lush to pick up a natural remedy to help me out.
After reading through the different options available, I decided on the BB Seaweed Face Mask. This calming concoction combines fresh seaweed, ground almonds, rose absolute and aloe vera to soothe and soften the skin. It also contains rosemary oil for its regenerative qualities and kaolin to remove any excess dirt or oil. It sounded pretty perfect – so off I went back to the hotel to try it out!
To use, simply apply a generous layer onto your face avoiding the eye area. As the product contains seaweed, it has a very earthy smell. This is very different to other Lush products I have tried, but I did like it. The mask will harden after about 5 or 10 minutes. Then, it is time to remove it with warm water.
The beauty of the Lush face masks is that each pot contains enough product for 4-6 applications. For the best results, I would recommend using the mask once per week for 4 weeks along with your typical skincare routine.
I have been using the BB Seaweed Face Mask for the past month, and I am really happy with the results. The condition of my skin has improved, appearing brighter and so much smoother over time. It is important to remember that face masks should not be used as quick fixes for bad skin, especially those with detoxifying ingredients. These ingredients work by drawing the toxins deep down in the layers of your skin to the surface. So, you may actually find that they make your skin appear worse before getting any better.
