Lush Sacred Truth Face Mask - In here, we have ginseng and green tea for their antioxidant effects. Fresh wheatgrass for its natural superoxide dismutase (SOD) – which are free radical scavengers. Rich, softening ingredients like linseed, eggs, evening primrose oil, shea butter, lanolin, coconut oil and honey to be soothing and moisturising. Clays of kaolin and talc will help clean the skin and papaya will help dissolve dead skin cells. This is a serious, complex mask to give maximum benefits for those who know that a little extra help and care will keep their skin at the height of its game.
Lush Fresh Face Masks are one of my favorite skincare products. Made with fresh, organic, natural ingredients - so fresh and preservative-free that they have to be stored in the fridge and used up in about 2 weeks - these are, in my opinion, the easiest way to pamper your skin. I have oily skin, so I generally stick to Cosmetic Warrior - a garlic and tea tree based mask that cleans up blemishes and oiliness - or Brazened Honey - perfect to brighten up dull skin. This time, though, I decided to try out the Sacred Truth Fresh Mask that promises a boost of antioxidant power.
|How To use Lush Fresh Face Masks: Apply to clean face, leave on for about 10 minutes or completely dry and wash off to healthy, rested skin :D|
Unlike some of the other fresh face masks from Lush, this is quite evenly textured, smooth, and easy to apply. It has a pleasant smell, but with Lush, I do find minor variations between batches, and sometimes it tends to smell a tad too strong. For my oily-combination skin, I found this too rich a mask, leaving behind an oily film that did no favors for my already acne-prone skin. My mom, though, loves this mask - it's her favorite Lush mask - and I really do notice a difference in her skin whenever she uses this. Overall, I would recommend the Lush Sacred Truth fresh face mask to anyone who really does need antiaging/antioxidant care for their skin and better suited for the normal-dry skin types, at least in my opinion.
Lush Sacred Truth Fresh Face Mask - Ingredients
My Verdict on the Lush Sacred Truth Face MaskGenie in a black tub, yes, - but use it only if you need it. I don't quite buy the theory that if you are over a certain age (and a rapidly decreasing number) you need to start using antiaging products. Sunsceens and good basic skincare, yes, but not every skin needs a dose of everything - especially if it's already oily. This does work great on drier/mature skins, though, and I suppose that is the market this it is aimed for. Remember to clean and save the little black tub - collect 5 and exchange at any Lush store for a fresh face mask of your choice.
