Lush – Catastrophe Cosmetic December 20, 2011

Am incercat pentru prima data o masca proaspata de la Lush. H. foloseste de mult timp masca cu afine, Catastrophe Cosmetic astfel ca m-am hotarat si eu sa o incerc. Mastile proaspete se tin in general tot timpul la frigider pentru ca au termen de valabilitate scurt (aproximativ 2-3 saptamani).

Masca Catastrophe Cosmetic are la baza ingrediente naturale (afine, musetel, ulei de migdale, etc), are un miros delicat si este o masca antioxidanta care reduce iritatiile si roseata lasand pielea fina si curata. Masca am aplicat-o intr-un strat subtire pe fata, apoi am mai adaugat un strat mai gros in zona T si pe pometi unde am porii mai mari. Masca iti ofera o senzatie incredibila de racorire, este cremoasa si contine din loc in loc bucatele de afine. La final si pe masura ce masca se usca am realizat ca arat exact ca si Mystique din X-Men :). Glumesc, nu chiar asa … ca nu am parul rosu :).

Masca am lasat-o 10-12 minute sa actioneze timp in care s-a uscat foarte bine inclusiv in zonele in care stratul a fost mai gros. Pe masura ce masca se usca si vorbeam sau imi miscam muschii fetei, bucati de masca uscata cadeau peste tot prin jur :). La final cand masca a fost uscata am inceput sa o spal cu putina apa. Masca s-a facut ca o crema, iar adaugand din ce in ce mai multa apa masca se dadea jos, imi exfolia si imi curata tenul. Aveti grija ca se cam face mizerie de la culoarea albastra, dar partea buna e ca nu pateaza obiectele sanitare. Oricum, a fost destul de greu sa dau masca jos, iar la final am observat ca zona de deasupra buzei (mustata) si pe langa perciuni s-au albastrit. A trebuit sa spal cu multa apa si sa frec mult pe zonele respective sa scap de albastreala.

Dupa spalare mi-am simtit tenul catifelat, mat, cumva cremos la atingere, dar in acelasi timp simt ca tenul are aderenta la atingere. Cutia cu masca proaspata are 75 de grame, la o aplicare nu trebuie foarte multa cantitate, cred ca in total ar ajunge pana pe la 7-8 aplicari, depinde si de grosimea straturilor aplicate.

Concluzie: Abia astept sa incerc si restul mastilor proaspete de la Lush in special masca cu ciocolata Cupcakes si pe cea cu migdale si lavanda Love Lettuce. Dupa ce voi mai incerca cateva masti proaspete de la Lush voi reveni cu notele si cu clasamentul. Pana atunci incercati si voi macar una…

I tried for the first time a fresh Lush mask. H. is using for a long time the blueberry mask, Catastrophe Cosmetic so I decide to try it myself as well. Fresh masks are to be kept refrigerated because they have a short expiration period (approx. 2-3 weeks).

The Catastrophe Cosmetic mask has an all natural ingredients base (blueberries, chamomile, almond oil, etc), it has a delicate smell and it is an anti-oxidant mask that reduces irritation and redness leaving the skin clean and smooth. I applied the mask in a thin layer on my face, then added a thicker layer in the T area and on the cheeks where I have larger pores. The mask gives an incredible sensation of coolness, it is creamy and contains blueberry bits. In the end and as the mask dries out I realized that I look just like Mystique from the X-Men :). Kidding, not exactly like that… I don’t have red hair :).

I left the mask on for 10-12 minutes to act and dry out really well, including the areas where the layer was thicker. As the mask dried out and I was talking or moving my facial muscles, bits from the masks would break down around me :). In the end when the mask was dry I started washing it with a bit of water. The mask turned into a cream and adding more and more water it came off, exfoliating and cleaning my complexion. Be careful because it may leave some mess around from the blue colour, but the good thing is that it does not stain the sink porcelain. Anyway, it was pretty difficult to get the mask off, and in the end I noticed that the area above the lip and next to the sideburns were blueish. I had to wash with a lot of water and rub those areas to get rid of the blue spots.

After washing I felt my complexion velvety, matte, somewhat creamy to the touch, but in the same time I feel that the complexion has some adherence when touching. The fresh mask box has about 75 grams, you don’t use that much for one application, I guess a box would be enough for 7-8 applications, depending also on the thickness of the applied layers.

Conclusion: I cannot wait to try the rest of the fresh masks from Lush, especially the chocolate mask Cupcakes and the one with almonds and lavender Love Lettuce. After trying more of the Lush fresh masks, I will get back with marks and a classification. Until then you should try yourselves at least one…
