Lush Face Masks Review! (Part 1)

Now I’ve had time to extensively try out the three lush masks I bought a while ago, it’s time for my review! I’ll also be reviewing a couple of other lush masks I’ve bought and used in the last few months. I’ve split these reviews into two parts, just because it was getting longer than expected. In this first part, I’ll be talking about Oatifix and Rosy Cheeks.

First up is Oatifix!

Lush says:

This gentle, nourishing mask is made with fresh bananas and illipe butter to moisturise dry skin. Oatmeal, ground almonds and kaolin work together in a mildly exfoliating base to eradicate dead skin, leaving you soft, supple and moisturised.

Lush Oatifix Face Mask

When I first opened it, my first thought was that it smells delicious. The scent is mild, and I’d describe it as soothing and a little sweet, like vanilla porridge. From the description I was expecting it to smell a little like banana, but it didn’t at all. The texture is also a bit like porridge. I suppose it’s inevitable with it being made from oats, but the texture is probably my least favourite thing about this mask. It was quite stiff and difficult to spread on the face. That said, it was very effective for gently exfoliating the skin without being too scrubby. So I can’t criticise too much!

I applied the mask while bathing, coating my face as evenly as possible, relaxed for 10 minutes, and then gently rubbed it off using small circular motions with my fingertips. After using the mask, my skin felt smooth and soft. This is definitely one that I’ll repurchase!

Next is Rosy Cheeks!

Find the happiness you seek by cleansing cheek to cheek with this gorgeously soothing fresh mask. A simple blend of kaolin, calamine and Turkish rose oil to delicately calm the skin and restore balance.

Lush Rosy Cheeks Face Mask

This one has the best texture of all the masks I’ve tried from Lush. It’s so smooth and easy to spread. Unsurprisingly, it smells like roses. I found the actual smell pleasant, but it was a little overpowering. I haven’t reached for this one nearly as often because I find it too strong to want it on my face for long. However I do tend to be sensitive to smells, so if you normally like rose-scented things, you will probably enjoy this mask. I found that this mask left my face feeling a bit dry, and didn’t have any noticeable effect outside of what would be expected from any clay-based mask. It was effective when used as part of Fiddy’s Pore-Minimising Method, but I feel like there are plenty of options for a simple clay mask that are better value for money. Overall, it’s a nice enough mask but I won’t be repurchasing it.

In the second part of my Lush masks review, I’ll be writing about Cosmetic Warrior, Ayesha, and Catastrophe Cosmetic, so look out for that in the next few days!

      I keep uhming and ahing about whether to try the magnaminty because my skin occasionally gets irritated by mint things (but not always?). Might pop in and ask if they could give me a little blob to patch test with before buying a full size.

    I love lush products, I haven’t been in there for a while but I’m tempted to pick myself up a face mask now for a bit of much needed pampering. I quite like the look of the Rose scented mask but not to keen on the idea of it drying my face out, I do love rose smells though so would probably like it if it smells amazing. Great post, Thankyou for such an informative and honest review :).

      It probably depends on your skin type. On an oily skin it might not feel too drying. They’ve just released another Rose mask on their website called Rose & Lemon but I do worry about Lemon being too harsh for my skin. Thanks for reading!
