Good morning everyone! Today’s post is all about one of my all time favorite stores…LUSH!!!! Can you feel the excitement? LUSH is a cosmetics store that offers some of the coolest products from shampoo bars, to bath bombs, to face masks. I love this company because they choose to make their products from amazing ingredients maintaining ethical standards throughout the process.

When I visited LA, I knew I had to stop by lush and try some new products! My skin went a little crazy this winter, so I decided to try 2 face masks for added benefits into my skin care routine. After reading the ingredients on serval products, I chose Brazened Honey and The Sacred Truth. I’ll give my review for each product below.
Brazened Honey was inspired by traditional Indian Ayurvedic principles, which put emphasis on balance as the foundation to health. Fresh free-range eggs and honey soften, lime oil brightens, spices warm the skin and ground almonds exfoliate. Kaolin clay reaches deep down into pores to pull out dirt and impurities, leaving your skin noticeably brighter and fresher. Our deepest cleansing mask, Brazened Honey is the perfect way to revive sluggish or congested skin.
The Brazened Honey mask was great on days that I needed a thorough exfoliation. It has a thick consistency, slightly dry and cakey feeling. It takes a little effort to apply. I don’t follow directions (or read them for that matter) so I left the mask on too long the first time. It was more abrasive than what I needed and I experienced a burning sensation. My skin is a little sensitive, so I should have followed the directions. Using the mask correctly, my skin felt smooth, clean, and bright! If you’re in need of a really good cleaning and exfoliation, CHECK THIS OUT.
The Sacred Truth
Divine intervention for dry or mature skin
Can you handle the truth? The truth is, your skin needs more regular maintenance and care as you get older. As you age, your dermis is thinning, losing its elasticity and ability to retain moisture, which can make the skin appear dull or sallow. Don’t fret! Taking care is easy thanks to this nutrient-packed mask. The Sacred Truth contains a powerful combination of rich, softening ingredients like linseed, eggs and shea butter to deeply moisturize and nutritious wheat grass, papaya, green tea and ginseng root to restore essential vitamins and brighten skin.
This was definitely my favorite of the two masks. It goes on smooth and has a nice smell in my opinion. I left this mask on too long as well (do you guys see a trend here??), but I still had a positive reaction. I washed it off and felt like the Good Lord touched my face Himself! Hahaha Too much? Well, this was something serious. It left my skin so moisturized but without a greasy feel or appearance! I was a new woman. Smooth, moisturized, and refreshed. Because this mask was so gentle and effective, I think I could use it every day. I’ll most likely buy this one again in a larger pot!
I hope these reviews help you! My goal is to try all of the LUSH face masks eventually. I really do love the message and the products they deliver. If you guys have any suggestions for the next mask I should try OR any other ethical lines to try out, leave a comment below! I love to hear from y’all ❤
