Lush Cosmic Warrior Fresh Face Mask Review

I got a pot of the Lush Cosmic Warrior Fresh Face Mask when I turned in 5 of my recyclable black Lush pots which was pretty cool.

What’s to love?

I’ve read the review of Cosmic Warrior and while a few people think it smells like wet dog I’m going to differ on that.

Cosmic Warrior is made of Kaolin, Fresh Green Grapes, Fresh Free Range Eggs, Honey, Corn Starch, Fresh Garlic and Tea Tree Oil and the scent I pick up most is the garlic and I didn’t find it to be that offensive.

I actually love this mask. I apply a thin coat to my face and it dries to an almost clear glaze which I think is from the eggs. I could not smell it on my face at all. After 10 minutes I wiped it clean and my face looked amazing. I feel like it works on my oily areas and replenished my dry spots and my pores looked mush smaller which was great.

This is a fresh mask so you have to keep it in the fridge and it only lasts for about 2 weeks.

I would buy Cosmic Warrior again…and I love the name!

Price: $8.95

Lush Cup O’ Coffee Face & Body Mask Review

Today I bring to you a delightful treat!

I happen to LOVE the smell of coffee, ironically I hate the taste and only drink tea so I get my coffee fix from candles, coffee beans and now  Lush Cup O’ Coffee Face and Body Mask.

The Cup O’ Coffee mask is now my go-to morning treat. I use it about 2-3 times per week which might be too much if you have sensitive skin. My skin type is on the oily side (I know weird for someone over 40) but I definitely get greasy on the T-Zone.

What I love about Lush Cup O’ Coffee.

Aside from the smell (which is a super deep, deep rich coffee bean aroma) I love the texture. Most masks are either clay or sticky peel off types. This mask is about the consistency of Karo Syrup (which makes sense because it’s got Organic Agave Syrup) with a nice grit from the coffee. I love how easily it spreads on too. Just coat your fingers and rub on your entire face or your problem areas.

The other thing I love is that it does not slide off or feel like a goopy mess. I leave my mask on for 5 minutes then wash off using a wash rag and warm water. Afterwards my skin is silky smooth and more pores are noticeably smaller.

I get zero irritation or redness from this product and it keeps my face looking great year round.

You can also use this product in the shower. I use it on my arms and shoulders for a great glow. Another bonus is that the coffee smell lingers for awhile.

Here is the product on my arm. That weird circular mark is from my Apple Watch (told you I was a geek)!

Price: $10.95 for 5.2 oz. or $19.95 for 11.4 oz.

I do recommend that you get the 5.2 oz tub unless you’re sharing it. The product expires fairly quickly (4 months) and if you’re only using it 2-3 times per week as a face mask you’ll be better off getting a new 5.2 oz. tub every month or so.
