Heya Gorgeous people.. you all know face masks are an important part our skin care routine. I am kind of addicted to face packs or face masks a lot. I try out many of them, but there are few ones which I always have as back up. Apart from this kind of addiction, I prefer natural or handmade masks over the ones which are filled with chemicals. This is just my preference but not a rule; I do pick up some masks which have less natural ingredients.
Today I will be reviewing one of my favorite face pack which is from the brand Lush. This face pack is called Brazened Honey.
To begin with Lush is one such brand which I always trust, I am a huge fan of their products. When it went from India I felt horrible since this was a only brand known to me who provided you with fresh hand made products like face masks. Yeah fresh because they prepare and give it to us. When I came to USA I was so happy that Lush has its store nearby.
Now on my shopping trip, I happened to stop by Lush for some haul. I had planned only to pick one or two products. But the brand being so exotic and the tempting products I ended up buying 3 face packs, heena and one hair pack. The SA was very friendly and she asked me some skin related questions like if I am having a dull skin, oily skin etc. Also she asked me about my work culture if I feel stressed in evening after work. My main concern these days was stress due to office work and so my skin used to become dull. I wanted something to lift up my skin. The SA suggested going for Brazened Honey Face Mask.
Price : 6.95 $ for 60g

About Brazened Honey Mask: Revitalize tired skin with warming Ayurvedic herbs and spices, ground almonds to polish and moisturizing honey
There is an extensive list of ingredients in this mask, but what caught my mind the most were ground almond, honey, lime juice and fresh range eggs. These are anyways great for skin so I couldn’t skip buying this mask. The SA also mentioned that this mask has a scrub kind of particles and once after it dries up we can scrub it lightly on our face to get rid of skin impurities if any left behind. The mask comes in a regular black colored opaque tub.
The mask is in light yellow color with ground almond particles in it. It’s a bit hard to spread but that’s really not my concern as I mix 2-3 drops of water in it and then apply it to the face. Also this mask needs to be refrigerated and should be taken out only during application. The sad part of Lush Face Masks is the expiry date; you got to use it within 20-30 days. So be careful while buying these, and I would suggest buy 1 or 2 facemasks at a time. Here is the swatch of Brazened Honey face mask:
Here’s my take about the product. I applied this mask medium thick layer on a clean face. It took around 10-15 minutes to dry off. I observed once it dries off it becomes quite hard. While washing it off, I patted some water on my face and then when mask was softened I started using its scrubbing effect. The scrubbing effect is mild and doesn’t feel harsh at all. I later after a minute or two of scrubbing washed off the complete mask. I use a bit of face wash after this as I don’t want any acidic residues on my face since it consists of lemon.
After this complete process my skin felt fresh and soft. Moreover all the impurities were wiped off and there was no oily residue left behind. Also after a regular use for a month I found my skin feels fresh after its use. However I feel once you stop using it your skin will go back to normal mode but probably that is what happens after usage of any face masks.
I enjoyed using Lush Brazened Honey face mask, and I would surely recommend it to everyone who has a dull skin. I feel this is suitable to all skin types so it’s a blessing to every beauty. And yeah I will be picking up again and again for sure.
