Lush facemask review - 'BB Seaweed'

Lush facemasks are something that in the beauty blogger world are raved about endlessly, and having had absolutely not experience with them I was always a bit curious. So when I was on my big payday spending spree, living like I'd won the lottery I popped into the Lush in the shepherds bush Westfield, where I spent a good 15 minutes going through all the different facemasks with a very sweet (albeit a bit odd) man that worked there who kept massaging my fingers and making up rhymes so I could remember the ingredients in the mask.

I eventually settled on the BB Seaweed mask because I wanted one which was exfoliating but not too drying because I do tend to get dry around my nose but blocked pores everywhere else.

Lush say: "Relaxing, reviving, mineral-rich mask to cleanse, soften and beautify. Fresh nutritious seaweed, cleansing kaolin, antiseptic honey, calming aloe vera and rose absolute to make this a great mask for everyone."

The mask itself is a greenish grey with a grainy, thick, houmous like consistency with bits of seaweed in it. It doesn't feel like the most pleasant mask to apply in my opinion, but this is the first ever fresh facemask I've tried so maybe that's how they're supposed to feel. The smell is one thing I definitely don't like, it's a sort of herbal smell which reminds me of lavender which makes me gag at the best of times! The mask feels lovely and soothing when it's on, and when i washed it off I did really appreciate the exfoliating particles in it and left my skin feeling beautifully soft and really clean. It didn't dry my skin out and felt like a really lovely treat for my skin, i think in future I'd like to try some of the other different lush facemasks and see how I get on with them.

Q- Whats your favourite lush product?

Lots of love, Daisy xxx
