LUSH Catastrophe Cosmetics Fresh Mask

LUSH Catastrophe Cosmetics Fresh Mask

Another day - another LUSH mask. Haha, I'm just kidding. I just want to review them while I'm using them as the memory of their performance is still fresh. It makes sense, right? 

This time we're talking about the mask Catastrophe Cosmetics which is full of fresh blueberries.
That's also the first thing you notice when opening the pot - a deliciously smelling mask that has a funny texture. It feels like a bit of a regular clay mask (even if it doesn't contain clay) with a bit of a stickiness (during application) and chunks of blueberries. It's a different mask.

A calming and moisturising fresh face mask packed with blueberries, calamine and chamomile, rose, and almond oils to soothe and soften the skin.   

I use it when my skin is irritated or when I notice that I have some pimples forming. And well, when I do, I use a lot of it because it is only good when it's fresh - as it's a fresh mask. That's about a month and it also should be refrigerated.

We use wholesome blueberries as they are rich in vitamins and minerals, including the antioxidant vitamins A, C, and E that help to protect the skin from damage. 

The application is simple - wash your face, and apply it directly from the pot using your hands. Spread is as evenly you can and you're done. Wait for 10-15 minutes (don't over do it as it has calamine and it is on the drying side) and wash it off with lukewarm water. You're done!

The chunks of blueberries can make the application a tad harder - it happened to me a couple of times. But once I realized that it's the blueberries that are "blocking" the application, I laughed and fixed it in one move.
It wasn't a big deal :).

Overall:

I enjoyed using this mask. It calmed my skin down, it smelled delicious and it was fun to use. I love sticking my fingers in several different pots. I know some people don't enjoy that, but I do. 
I also like their recycle program - You bring back 5 empty pots (that have a recycle symbol on them) and you get one fresh mask of your liking. It's really simple and I can't wait to turn in my 5 pots. Once I empty them all. :D 
Overall it's a nice mask, calming but it may not be optimal for those with dry skin as it can feel a bit drying when left on for too long. 

Have you tried the Catastrophe Cosmetics mask? If yes - how did you like it?
