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.
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.
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.
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.
