Lush Brazened Honey Fresh Face Mask Review

I received this Lush Brazened Honey Fresh Face Mask for free for turning in my Lush black pots and I have mixed feelings about it.

The Lush Brazened Honey Mask is good for two weeks and needs refrigerated which makes it a bit hard. However I was able to spread the mask on my face and it felt amazing going on. It has ground almonds for exfoliation which I love.

Brazened Honey also has ginger, fennel, cardamom and turmeric which warm and stimulate the skin. It also has lime oil and honey moisturizes. It has a kaolin clay base and it dried like a clay mask on my face. My mask didn’t feel hot or uncomfortable but it did leave my face a bit red which I didn’t mind.

My only issue is with the strong scent that lingers for a long time. It’s a spicy scent that I’m not sure I love.

Overall I loved the results of the mask (my face felt nice and tight) but the smell is a bit too much for me.

Lush Love Lettuce Fresh Face Mask Review

I am a face mask addict and I want to try the entire Lush line. Today I tested out a Love Lettuce which is a fresh mask. You can only buy fresh masks in a Lush store. Here’s a great article from the Lush blog about Fresh face masks: How to choose your Fresh Face Mask.

This is a sample of Love Lettuce that I was given for free at Lush. Lush is extremely generous with giving samples out, just ask at the store. They will give you a small pot which will last you for 2-3 uses.

What I love about Lush Love Lettuce

I am 46-years-old with combination skin that tends to be more on the oily side, I also have large pores. Love Lettuce gives me a nice rough scrub to tackle my pores using ground almonds but it also has some soothing elements like French lavender oil with seaweed and honey.

I removed the mask with a warm wash cloth after 5 minutes and was left with noticeably smoother skin. I swear it was glowing!

The only con for me was the smell which is a bit on the earthy side. Oddly I didn’t notice the smell until after I applied the mask. It smells great in the tub. My guess is that the earthy smell comes out as it dries.

So a big “Yes” for Love Lettuce. My face feels so FRESH! Get it…Fresh. OK, that was lame.
