LUSH MASK OF MEGNAMINTY

Hello peach tarts,

Today I have a skincare product with me.There are a few things in skincare which impress me instantly and when they do I never let them go.Was the mask of megnaminty that ONE thing or was it just an average over expensive product.Read to know.




















Lush says:

Makes dirt a distant memory

"Mask of Magnaminty isn’t technically a daily ‘facial wash’; it’s actually a deep cleansing face and back mask. China clay and fresh peppermint reach deep down to pull the debris from your pores, giving you that delightful tingly-clean sensation. We add loads of aduki beans to exfoliate flaky or dry skin, vanilla absolute to calm redness and honey to soothe. Our inventors created Mask of Magnaminty to be the ‘ultimate face mask’, intense but not harsh or abrasive on the skin. We recommend using Mask of Magnaminty weekly to keep the skin in good condition."


The 4.4oz tub available for 12$ at Lush USA wesbsite.11.1oz is available for 18$.I got the 4.4.oz for PKR1800 which was not too bad.



It comes with a manufacturing date,an expiry date and the cartooned picture of the person who made it.The idea is genius.This mask has a short shelf life.As you can see its only 4-5 months.However, a major problem was tackled by LUSH when they made it self preserving.This not only improved the shelf life, but also avoided the necessity of refrigerating the mask,as was the case with previous formula.



The packaging is just average.Owing to the environment friendliness the plastic used has been recycled and so its not super sleek.However for me its a big plus.The brand is Eco friendly and I love the black simple look of its jars.



The product is not only green, but it is laced with peppermint.You are greeted with the refreshing tantalizing scent the moment you open the jar.It is a bit chunky because of all the grounded aduki beans.It has a cool sensation and a yummy smell of vanilla and peppermint mixed together.Its a total treat for senses,this mask.Some people do not like the texture or look of this mask, but I think the appearance completes the whole "all natural and vegan" feel beautifully.You don't feel like you are applying a whole lot of chemicals on face, but something very natural and skin friendly.


This mask can be used as often as possible, but I use it at least twice weekly.
Its time to answer the real question...performance?

Well,It is a great addition to my skincare regimen.I have used it from winters to the scorching summers and now through the humidity.My skin is very oily, but it becomes combination type in winters and sometimes I have dry patches too.However, it never disappointed me.Every time I took off this green mask my face looked hydrated,supple and glowing.On application the tingling and cooling makes you feel that the mask is working.You feel relaxed and all calm.When it is dried up and rubbed off it provides some amount of exfoliation too.Finally,a brighter,calmer and glowing skin is revealed.It does draw out dirt and cleans pores.


It works great for oily skin,but it is equally good for dry and sensitive skin too.


It reduces redness really effectively.So much so that I even use it on my pimples.It might not kill the zit, but it certainly controls the monster and calms it down.I even apply it on my troubled areas of face and go to sleep.The next day I wake up to a clearer skin which does not look like a war zone anymore.Applying it regularly can even lead to fewer breakouts and less pimples.


The best thing I like about this mask is its oil control properties.I sometimes use it before I have to go out.When I wear makeup after using it my face looks brighter and makeup stays on for longer.The shiny face is delayed greatly.


Overall, I love love love this mask.It is like a super avatar of my Queen Helen Mint Julep Mask(review here).Everything that I expected from queen Helen, magnanimity has given me.It has now become a staple,an HG and a permanent part of my skincare arsenal.I will not purchase the 11.1 oz because 4.4oz is adequate fro my needs and I can finish it easily in its 5 months of shelf life.


GOOD POINTS:

Great for all skin types.

Vegan and Halal

Calms down acne.

Draws out dirt and impurity.

Leaves skin hydrated and glowing.

All natural and chemical free.



BAD POINTS:

Availability is a problem.

Price is a bit steep.

Shelf life is shorter even with a self preserving formula.

  6. This really is the type of product our local companies should be manufacturing instead of harmful whitening face products.Natural ingredients are cheaper here so they would retail cheaper here. My kind of product :) Really helpful review -Sadaf

  12. I think Lush products are too over priced. Their soaps etc are sold by weight so every soap has a different price. The smell is so pungent when walking by the store that it get nauseous. Going into their store stirs my sinuses and causes me to sneeze sneeze and sneeze. I'm sure their products are good. I would really like to have one mild smelling soap for my bathroom just for freshness but for me there are more cons than pros. Love the review!
