Lush Cosmetic Warrior Mask Review

Product Description:

A superhero face mask to combat spots, cleanse dirt, calm and soothe all troubled skins. Antiseptic fresh garlic and tea tree essential oil, reinforced with deeply cleansing kaolin and fresh grapes, are aided by softening honey and free range eggs. Apply to clean skin, avoiding the eye area. Leave for five to ten minutes, and then rinse away with warm water. Keep chilled.

Cosmetic Warrior


Rs. 670 for 100 gms.


Lush masks come in a round, plastic, black coloured jar/tub with a screw off lid.  It’s a simple, no fuss, basic and easy-to-use packaging.

My Experience with Lush Cosmetic Warrior Mask:

I always prefer to use fresh face masks/packs over readymade/ready-to-use ones with high chemical content. So, I was using chickpea flour (besan) + curd or oats + milk masks mostly since the last few months. These masks do work well for skin, but I wanted something that would help my breakouts to settle faster and reduce them gradually as I was sick of using chemical ointments.

Cosmetic Warrior

I have to admit I am very satisfied with the results.

Lush Cosmetic Warrior Fresh face mask is a judicious blend of Garlic, Honey, Tea Tree Oil, Grapes and as per my (little) knowledge till date, all of these are great for acne/troublesome skin.

The mask has thick consistency, but doesn’t trouble much in spreading on the face. It is not a clear mask and has some particles, seems like grape skin/peel to me, but which are not abrasive at all.  The mask dries up in about 10-15 minutes of application.

Cosmetic Warrior

The mask opens up (like the top note :P) with the smell of eggs and garlic. Now, that can be annoying for some. Even I was a little taken aback by the smell when I used this first. But soon after applying it on, the smell of tea tree takes over and garlic-egg smell subsides. I have been using this mask for a while and seriously the smell does not bother me at all now.

Post washing off, the mask gives a good tightening effect to the skin (without making it dry or stretchy), I guess because of the eggs in it. Tea tree manages to soothe the skin and my face looks super clean like thoroughly deep cleaned.

Cosmetic Warrior

Since the last few weeks, I gave up on using my acne gels to treat breakouts and I am only depending on this mask for some relief. Now, I can’t say that the mask works overnight, finishes off breakouts in one use, but it does work, at its own slow pace. I don’t mind the slow healing it does, but at least I am not bothered about my skin and any side effects when I use this as compared to all the chemical treatments.

Overall, I am satisfied with the mask and I would definitely recommend these to girls/ladies with combination-oily-acne prone skin. Needless to mention, I would repurchase too.

Pros of Lush Cosmetic Warrior Mask:

  • Made up of skin-friendly ingredients.
  • Works on acne/breakouts (at its slow pace though).
  • Reveals a super clean face post washing off.
  • Gives a tightening effect to the skin without making it dry-stretchy.
  • Tea tree in the mask soothes the skin and reduces redness.
  • Lush masks are made with almost nil chemicals and preservatives.

Cons of Lush Cosmetic Warrior Mask:

  • The egg-garlic smell may put you off initially.
  • Lush products are a little expensive.
  • These need to be finished within 1 month of purchasing and you need to store them in the refrigerator. So, you can’t take these on travel 🙁
  • The biggest con for me has to be the availability. I think they have just one Lush store in Delhi.

  1. Thanks for this review Nupur,….I havent tried any of the Lush face masks so far, since I felt they very expensive because of the short shelf life….this one looks too good,…

    btw when you say chickpea flour (besan) + curd or oats + milk mask do you use fresh milk or the malai (layer on boiled milk)….. Also how often can besan be used on the face ,……

    Before winter hits , I want to try some natural DIY stuff

    1. Lush masks r reallyy good Supriya :victory2: :victory2:

      Besan+curd / even rose water works well and i use fresh milk n not cream…. some one with dry skin can use malai though 🙂
      Besan can be used from daily to every alternate day on face 🙂 as per ur requirement.. i know a lady who uses just besan pack only for washing her face , no soap/face washes 🙂

  2. I lurrvveeeee DIY masks… :teddy: I always have one container filled with dry ingredients of wat my skin is in need of & I mix it with wet ones as & when required.. :makeup: DIYs are fresh + natural + economical + ye + woh + pata nahi kya kya.. :haanji:

    Nice& Detailed review..But 670 rs & 1 month’s validity..Ye baat kuchh hazam nahi hui.. :nonono:

        1. haan batao shilpa…plzzzzzzzzzz….main abhi turmeric + rose water + curd laga ke baiti hoon…morning morning :teeth

          1. Ok to phir…latesht & bestesht chal raha hai aajkal…

            Have mixed Oatmeal flour + Besan + Turmeric + Saffron + Flaxseeds Powder + Muscovado Sugar + Nutmeg Powder + Cinammon Powder + ground Vit-C & Multivitamin tablets ( In a nutshell chunnu munnu sa.. Grocery Shop + Spice Shop + Medical Shop)…& stored it. Whenever feel like pampering myself I mix it with curd or raw milk or honey or vinegar+water…kabhi kabhi betu ka leftover make it Chocoface pack.. :makeup:

            1. Muscovado Sugar nahin milega yahaan but baaki I can get…. :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: but vinegar in a face pack…. :waiting: :waiting: :waiting: :waiting: :waiting:

              1. Brown Sugar milta hai naa…I guess in FabIndia mil jaayega..I add sugar for that Glycolic Peel effect & diluted vinegar is good for my oily skin & freckles.. :haanji:

                1. okay, I think Shilpa, you should share more of these masks with us…like daily one mask you share with me :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: and thank you so muchhhhhhhhh….I have heard of cinnamom powder being good for skin, should I add one pinch of it :yahoo:

                  1. Cinammon is quite strong ingredient for facemask…thoda zyada hua to it will start burning.. 😥 Pinch wuld has anti-bacterial properties & helps in controlling acne..!!

                    Baaki vaartalaap phir karein.?!..abhi neenee karne jaaon.. :methinks:

                    1. Supriya, you had reviewed that spicy mask na….great….I want cinnamon in my mask :jiggy1: :jiggy1:

    1. i love them too Shilpa 🙂

      lush products are a little pricey, but at the price u pay, u get great quality stuff that WORKS !!!! :victory2: :victory2: :victory2:

  3. Supriya……I too vouch for this chickpea + curd + turmeric formula. You can try this one. Also, I am not sure if you are using curd, milk is necessary, but surely Nupur will answer that for you. O:)

    1. it is nice kimi, 🙂

          1. abhi nahii…will make once my OTG comes.. 😀 and it is gonna take some 1-2 weeks :waiting: :waiting: :waiting: :waiting: :waiting: :waiting:

  5. Great review, Nupur. :toothygrin: 😀 I need a mask like this too. I am going to order it online the next time my mum orders that weird henna slabs that Lush sells. :woot: :yahoo: Just one worry though – does the garlic-egg smell go away thanks to the later tea-tree effect or does it come back on your face once you wash it off? :-/ Sorry, if it seems silly but it’d be dreadful to have a stinky face. :yikes:

    1. thanks JW 🙂
      nooo the egg+garlic smell doesnot linger on after washing…. actuallyy it disappears after a minute or so of applying 🙂
      u wont have stinky face coz of this , just clean clean face
      :makeup: :makeup: :makeup: :makeup:

  6. I am not a fan of lush ……. I find their products to be too cumbersome …… eg: why not pack the soaps into small molds for individual use rather than giving the customer one big lump that they struggle with and end up wasting ……. are the companies today about making the experience easier and less time consuming for the customer ? ……. its like they don’t care

    I had this mask …….. i find the smell wayyyyyyyyy too strong ….. the garlic just assaults your senses …….. the mask in itself was ok …….nothing miraculous just the skin felt generally soft after use like it does with any other mask …… the worst part -they don’t have anything less than 100 gms for masks ……… how many times a week is one supposed to use it so as to finish it ……. I had a lot of it left but sadly it developed some sort of a mold even after refrigeration … expensive + wastage = too much loss ……I’ll stick to DIY when in the mood for “natural”

    1. woowh…. u seem to be really upset wid Lush, swati 😛
      u can always cut the soap pc. u get as per ur requirement…. i always do that…. 🙂
      plus, do u get normal soaps(like lux, rexona etc) in market in the form of small chunks/molds whatever u meant???
      THe only thing i dont like personally is that they dont give less than 100gms quantity of any mask… apart from that I have absolutely no qualms at all with Lush Products :victory2: :victory2:
      the masks are supposed to be kept cold so that they dont spoil in heat.. i dont think that adds on to wastage or loss…. 😐 I like DIY , natural masks , but Lush masks are almost Natural too

      1. Nupur, i bought a couple of soaps from them and they just dissolved in the water and vanished ……… like *poof* …….. the diff from normal soaps is that those soaps don’t dissolve this fast …. with lush, you have to literally take to the shower only what you will use in one wash ……. otherwise its all gone ……. its so inconvenient for every day use

        And the masks … i got this one and cup cake(which btw smells awesome) ….. and both of them got spoiled in spite of refrigeration ….. had more than half a tub left of each since i don’t have anyone to share with …..

        The sheer wastage broke my heart 😥 ……… plus the results were just about ok ………. So i guess I am a little upset with them ….. it was my first time with lush …… i’m pretty sure i won’t be repurchasing

  7. I was planning to get this but does it do anything for the spots? reducing the redness is fine..but if any spots on the skin? any job of that kind? :-/ :-/

  8. egg n garlic :hihi:
    I am so proud of you nupuriiii 😀
    but seriously i am so scared as the summers are getting closer . Trying to take as much care as possible…can you recommend some nice wet wipes tht i could carry to college n that wont give me that sticky feeling

    1. Ritika 😀 😀
      thnkooo thnkoooo :toothygrin:
      yess summers mei , my also skin neeeds super extra dose of TLC :toothygrin: :toothygrin:

  9. Nice review.. :yes: :yes: Nupur, my acne subsided completely.. I am ready for makeup.. :happydance: Any packs for hydrating skin available in lush? Though I dont have lush here, i may pick it up when I go for vacation.. :))

  10. Nupur maine wo matrix ka fortetherapie b laya which you reviewd..awesome hai :yahoo: isko bhi wish list mein putting 🙂
