Blueberries for Your Face: Lush Catastrophe Cosmetic

by Joyce in


We all know that blueberries are good for you, but Lush Cosmetics has now taught me that blueberries are good for my face too!

I've been meaning to properly try out the face masks from Lush for a while, so I recently traded in 5 of my empty Lush pots for their Catastrophe Cosmetic Fresh Face Mask.

Meant to soothe the skin, this creamy mask contains the previously mentioned blueberries as well as chamomile and calamine. I love the almost whipped texture of this mask, which also smells lightly of blueberries. It is easy to wash off, and it leaves my skin feeling smooth and looking even toned. It doesn't feel drying either, and is meant for all skin types. 

My fiance and his mom also tried this mask, and both of them enjoyed it as well. I do have to say that I saw remarkable results when my fiance applied this mask after shaving in lieu of aftershave. No redness or post-shave irritation to be seen, and everyone reported less redness overall! 

For those new to Lush, their face masks are freshly made in stores and as a result are not available online. They retail for $6.95, though you can trade in 5 empty Lush pots for a face mask in store. It is also important to note that these masks need to be refrigerated and expire within a few weeks of your purchase, so be sure to plan ahead. 

I definitely plan to get this mask again and look forward to trying other masks from Lush. Have you tried any of Lush's Fresh Face Masks? Do you have a favorite mask that I should try? I'd love to know!
