Welcome to a brand new blog post. I recently got to try some of the new Beauty Sleep mask from Lush, and, I thought that today, I would talk to you all about it.
List Of Ingredents:
Lemon Verbena and Valerian Root Extracted in Honey Glycerine Mullein Leaf and Linseed Decoction Kaolin Talc Ground Organic Aduki Beans Orange Blossom Honey Water Extra Virgin Coconut Oil Bentone gel Orange Flower Absolute Neroli Oil Myrrh Resinoid Lavender Oil Benzoin Resinoid Tonka Absolute Ylang Ylang Oil Organic Jojoba Oil Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil Fresh Coconut Illipe butter Organic Avocado Oil Organic Cold Pressed Evening Primrose Oil Evening Primrose Seeds Wheatgerm oil Fresh Lemon Juice Fresh Pineapple Juice Fresh Orange Juice Organic Cold Pressed Grapeseed Oil Water (Aqua) Titanium Dioxide Synthetic Fluorphlogopite Tin Oxide Stearic Acid Triethanolamine Cetearyl Alcohol *Benzyl Benzoate *Benzyl Cinnamate *Cinnamal *Coumarin *Farnesol *Geraniol Hydroxycitronellal *Limonene *Linalool Perfume Colour 17200 Colour 42090.
Directions To Use:
Run a warm bath, put on some relaxing music and apply this beautiful face mask to clean skin. Sit back and relax. Inhale the neroli and let the valerian and lemon verbena get to work. Once you’re feeling relaxed and ready for bed, rinse away with warm water.
The texture of this mask was a complex one for me. When I grabbed some of this mask out of the tub, it was quite creamy, but when I applied it to my skin it became quite scrubbing and matte. I haven't experienced this much with a Face Mask before, as normally scrubbing/matte based products don't tend to be as creamy as Beauty Sleep was when I applied it.
When I was washing it off, I adored the tiny scrubbing sensation that I got from removing the Aduki Beans from my face. Due to lactose based spots my skin can have a nasty reaction to abrasive scrubbing so I loved that it wasn't a harsh scrub. I also adored the softness that this product gave my face, due to the dollop of 'Gorgeous' Moisturiser that is in Beauty Sleep.
The smell of this product, was a peculiar one for me. Even though there is a few citrus based ingredients in this product, Beauty Sleep had an overwhelming smell of Lavender to me. Beauty Sleep smelt like the Lush product 'Twilight' to me. After five minutes of leaving the mask on, the product changed slightly from full on Lavender to me, to a mixture of deep Orange Flower and Lavender to me. I think if the same formula based mask came out with a more Citrus scent that was called something like I Woke Up Like This, then I would absolutely adore that. I'm just not the biggest fan of Lavender.
Would I buy this again? I'm not sure. I think I'd buy it every once in a while because I love the more softening formula to it. However, if I want a scrub based mask, I would probably stick to the ones that are already a part of my beauty routine. I think that I would use this every so often but its not a mask that, personally, I would instantly go to when I want a pamper. As I said above, if it was more citrus scented I would gravitate to it a bit more.
