Catastrophe Cosmetic Face Mask

I promised this post a long time ago when I reviewed the Brazed Honey face mask! So here it is! Before Valentine’s Day LUSH conducted a face mask campaign in support of all their fresh ingredients! There was even a social media campaign called #LUSHfreshselfies!  The instructions for this social media event are pictured below in an Instagram post:

So this was my #LUSHfreshselfies I posted in the Catastrophe Cosmetic face mask:

Obviously, this face mask was super super fresh! I got this one because I returned 5 of my used pots. I have tried this mask along time ago and wanted to review it so I picked it up again! It works miracles and really soothes the skin. The smell is also pretty enjoyable compared to other face products. According to LUSH, this is a great mask to use when trying to prevent break outs! If you are a blueberry fan I suggest picking this one up. Here are a list of some of the fresh ingredients:

  • Chamomile Blue Oil
  • Calamine Powder
  • Irish Moss
  • Fresh Blueberries (of course)
  • Almond Oil
  • Rose Absolute
  • Sweet Wild Orange Oil

These are a few more social media posts that previewed during this campaign:

  1. The one on the left is from the LUSH Willowbrook Mall’s Facebook Page. I liked this one a lot because it shows the beautiful set up and design that are normally in LUSH stores for the face masks.
  2. The other one is from the LUSH Cosmetics Facebook page – this one is a contest post! Whoever can guess what face mask these rose petals are going in would win (I think they picked 10 winners)! I even commented on this one! Does anyone want to take a guess to which face mask this is?!

5 Pots For 1 Free Mask

Recently I have been going to LUSH stores A LOT. At least more than I do once my semester starts. Each time I have been returning around 5-6 empty black pots for a free face mask! LUSH started this system to use pots that are post customer recycled plastic! So when you return pots, they recycle and reuse them.

Here are all the LUSH fresh face masks you can chose from (the picture is a bit small, I know):

  • Brazed Honey – I think this is the most gentle and simple face mask that LUSH offers. The smell is not to strong and the texture is smooth. The fresh ingredients in this mask are eggs, honey, lime oil, ground almonds, Kaolin clay and probably much much more.
  • Cupcake – This is definitely one of the most popular masks. It is sometimes hard to find this one in stock at stores. This is for skin that is more acne prone. The fresh ingredients in this mask are cocoa, mint, vanilla absolute, spearmint oil, Rhassoul mud and much more. When using this mask, you feel like your spreading mint chocolate icing all over your face!
  • Catastrophe Cosmetic – This is another popular face mask from LUSH. This one is especially nice in the summer months. The fresh ingredients in this mask are blueberries, calamine, rose absolute, chamomile blue oil and more. This mask is especially made for people with sensitive skin.

Soon, I will be reviewing all three of the detailed masks above. If you would like to purchase a mask or return your pots for one, you cannot order them online but only find them in stores. This is because the masks are made super fresh and have an expiration date about two-three weeks after they are bought. Also, you should keep your mask in the fridge to make sure it stays nice and fresh!
