BB seaweed fresh face mask Lush review



 A while ago I took a trip to my local Lush store and purchased BB seaweed fresh face mask. Now months after I decided to give my honest review of this product. Lately I have suffered from dry skin and a few spots which I thought was stress related. However on closer inspection by the doctor I had a form of mild acne. This meant I stopped using my weekly dose of facemask treatments from Lush for a while until the situation had settled down.

Usually every Friday night has become my relax haven and it is known as pamper night (Since not being a student I have ditched the alcohol and my dancing shoes) which I hope this means I am not suffering a mid-life crisis of some sort because although I currently present on 96.5 Bolton FM and have had amazing blog opportunities lately I am still unemployed (It really sucks)

This week I turned into a baking diva and made some homemade chocolate chip cookies and a Victoria sponge. Whilst literally sticking my head in the fridge, there it was staring at me and looking rather unwanted (My BB seaweed face mask). Of course Lush fans know you have to keep them in the fridge to keep the fresh ingredients from rotting.

Lush say, “Relaxing, Reviving- mineral rich mask to cleanse, soften and beautify. Fresh nutritious seaweed, cleansing kaolin, antiseptic honey, calming aloe vera and rose absolute makes this a great mask for everyone.”

Tuesday night became my pamper night this week, I ran my- self a lovely hot bath, plonked the last of my comforter bubble bar in and covered my face with well erm... seaweed. It was a rather odd thing to put on my face but once I got past my worries it felt lovely. The Seaweed face mask doesn't have a very strong scent which is great because I didn’t want to aggravate my sensitive skin. However unlike other Lush face masks it lacked that bit of oomph for me I’m afraid. After I removed the mask, apart from soft skin I didn’t really notice much difference unlike Catastrophe Cosmetic but I was using my Catastrophe on a weekly basis and since I don’t need to use cream for my mild acne anymore I haven’t tested my BB seaweed mask on a weekly basis.

I would rate BB Seaweed face mask 3.5/5, it isn’t a bad product but it isn’t my one of my favourites out of the Lush face mask range.

Have you tried BB seaweed mask?

  3. I have tried the BB seaweed mask and I love it! But I dislike the fact that I must put them in the fridge cause I always forget about them and then a month gone and they are expired >.<

  4. A good face mask sounds like a good idea! There is actually a Lush store here in Australia..although I am in the country so it is about an hour and a half drive away down the highway! Maybe next time I go to town!
