Brazened Honey // LUSH £5.95
LUSH or Lush. Do I shout or whisper? Whatever, this brand still holds some mysticism for me. Even though I've been living in London on and off for almost a year and a half and Lushs are kind of like Starbucks or McDonalds (on every dang street corner it seems sometimes), it's still this very magical, affordable, quirky UK brand that was denied to me when all my favorite beauty v/bloggers were talking it up. Of course, they've now put one in Indianapolis, but I think the Los Angeles diaspora is still pretty pathetic.
This is the second Fresh Face Mask I've tried (my maiden voyage with Oatfix is available on Blu-ray and demand) and I really like it. It was actually brought to my attention in the comments of derpinaMODE. Shout out to Courtney!
Brazened Honey is, as demonstrated by my face, very green. If you're ever trying to recreate that scene in that movie where the teenage girl has just put on her night cream when the doorbells rings. She shuffles downstairs, grumbling about staffing the butler 24 hours, opens the front door, and finds her hunky dreamboy crush standing on her front porch. Quick push-in on protagonist decked out in expression of mortification. Yes, this mask can achieve all this for you...
But there's more! Some notes on the experience: it dries in different colored green patches (flattering!), I could feel my skin tightening as it dried, and eventually couldn't really move my face without "snowfall"--little dusty bits raining everywhere. But what face mask is pretty?
Verdict: Like. It exfoliates and clarifies my combination/oily skin leaving it brighter and soft to the touch. And at £6 with about ten uses per pot, I can definitely see myself repurchasing it... after I've tried all the other fresh face masks ;]
Do you prefer another Lush face mask? Or one from a different brand? Leave a persuasive pitch in your comment.
