LUSH Mask of Magnaminty- Review:
Here I come with a magical product which I came across. I was so very much attracted to the hand made products from LUSH that when my husband went for an office tour to Mumbai I gave him a long list and Lush Mask of Magnaminty was one of the products which I had told him to bring for me.
About LUSH Mask of Magnaminty:
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.

My Experience with LUSH Mask of Magnaminty:
I have an oily skin which is acne prone and this fact made me restless always and I use to search for products which will help me out. I read in a blog about this mask and I made up my mind that I have to get it. Lets go through the details:
Packaging: I love these tub packaging of LUSH, because when kept on the shelf or refrigerator, they looks like a tub of ice cream. The tubs are black in color with a screwed cap, it has the label which contains a lot of information on it. These products are not tested on animals and are freshly handmade and this is the biggest fact which attracted me.
Consistency: The pack is minty green in color with a thick consistency. It has lots of granular substances in it which helps in the scrubbing part while washing it off.
How to use and Results: It written on the label that’s it’s a face and a back pack but I have used it on my face only till now. I take off all my makeup and apply a layer of it and when it dries I wash it with lukewarm water.
It claims to dry in 10-15 minutes but this is not true it takes around 20-25 minutes to dry. As soon as I apply the mask, it gives a cooling tingling effect which kind of relaxes my face muscles. After it is dried, I take little water in my hands, do a little scrubbing and then wash it off. The taking off thing is very time taking because here the mask acts a bit stubborn.
But the after effects are just amazing. It leaves my skin super clean and fresh looking. It adds a little glow to my tired face too. I use this mask once a week and sometimes even twice a week. It has helped me clear my blemishes and control the acne and I am very happy due to this.
I always store it in my refrigerator because fresh handmade masks has very less shelf life but if stored in refrigerator their life can be increased by a month or so.

Final Thoughts: I would again repeat as I did in my last post, “LUSH please come to my city”.
