Lush 'Love Lettuce' Face Mask | Beauty Review

Saturday, 26 March 2016

Hello my lovelies! In my recent Youtube video (you can watch it here) you can see that I went on a Lush spree recently and I bought some lovely goodies this time around! One of the lovely products that I bought was the 'Love Lettuce' Fresh Face Mask! I have used a few of Lush's Face Masks before, such as 'Don't Look At Me' (you can read the review here) and 'Rosey Cheeks' (you can read the review here) and have really enjoyed using them, so I was very keen to see what the other face masks were like!



When I was in my local Lush store, I mentioned how I loved the exfoliating properties of the 'Don't Look At Me' face mask and asked if any of the other face masks had something similar to them. I was presented with 'Love Lettuce' and 'Brazened Honey' (but that's for another time!).

Included in the face mask is Agar Agar Gel which is made from a species of seaweed which helps soften and moisturize skin, Kaolin (a type of clay) which helps exfoliate and cleanse dead skin cells,  Honey which aid to moisturizing and is also used as an antiseptic, Fullers Earth which absorbs excess oil and dirt, Almond Oil which is packed with vitamin E, Ground Almonds and Lavender Oil for a relaxing scent! .'Love Lettuce' also includes ground Almond shells which acts to exfoliate your skin, so its a more of a fine exfoliant than the ground rice in the 'Don't Look At Me' face mask.


As you can see form the pictures above, this face mask has a green colour to it, which I really like about these face masks! It makes applying a face mask so mush more fun and enjoyable! I have to say, this isn't the nicest smelling face mask I've tried, so don't expect any fabulous smelling mask when purchasing this one (but don't worry, it does a great job!).

When applying the face mask, I made sure that I had taken off all of my make up before putting the mask on. I them applied the mask smoothing out any lumps or where the mask became thick in areas, as you only need to cover the surface of your skin. I made sure to keep the product away from sensitive areas, such as my eyes and my mouth. I then relaxed for 15 minutes and then it was time to wash off! I like my mask to become a bit dry/hard before I wash it off, that way I know it's done a good job and has had enough time to get to work! I like to apply some warm water on my hands and start to make the mask wet again, that's when I start to exfoliate my skin. Without washing the mask off completely, I start to work the product in troubled area's, such as my nose and my forehead, and could feel the exfoliating power of the ground almond shells! When I have had a good scrub of my whole face, I then wash the whole mask off and dry my face.

I was really pleased with the results from this mask! As said before, it's not the best smelling face mask, but it did do a fantastic job! I have quite oily skin, and when I dried my face I found that it had completely mattified my face without it feeling tight or dry. I tried the 'Rosey Cheeks' face mask not too long ago, and even though it mattified my face well, it left my face feeling a bit tight afterwards, so it was a lovely surprise to see this result! 

Overall, my face felt clear, cleansed and mattified! I can't wait to try this mask out again! If any of you have tried this mask before, let me know what you thought about it in the comments below!

Lush Bath Bomb | Twilight | Beauty Review

Wednesday, 23 March 2016

As some of you guys have previously seen, I am a bit in love with Lush products at the moment! I went on a Lush spree a while ago (you can watch the video on my Youtube here) and have only just started to use the products and am loving writing reviews about them! This bath bomb is called 'Twilight' and is part of Lush's main range, which means you can buy it all year round! 


What first instantly attracted me to this bath bomb was the scent! I picked it up and as soon as I did I fell in love! It was so calming and warm! The bath bomb includes Lavender Oil, Tonka Absolute, Benzoin Resinoid and Ylang Ylang Oil, so you can imagine on just how good this thing smells! The Lavender Oil is balancing and calming, so this bath bomb is great if you have trouble sleeping as Lavender is often used to help people feel calm and helps send people off to sleep. And it also smells AMAZING! The Tonka Absolute is actually a bean and is known to treat anti-inflammatory. It is also thought to treat joint problems. Benzoin Resinoid comes from Evergreen tress and is actually a sap that is then turned into a gum! This natural preservative and antiseptic is used for its warming qualities, believed to stimulate blood flow and ease aching muscles, and it contains coniferyl cinnamate, an ester, which is said to have powerful relaxing properties. It also contains sumaresinolic acid, which helps to reduce swelling. Lastly, Ylang Ylang Oil has a heady, sweet and floral aroma and is often used in aromatherapy for its uplifting properties and for combating stress and depression.


This bath bomb has so many amazing ingredients and properties, I just HAD to buy it! As I placed it into my bath-tub the colours instantly began to melt into the bath water. Streams of pink and blue whirled around the bath and the bomb happily fizzed away with the scent of all of the ingredients filling my bathroom! 


One of the things I love most about the Lush bath bombs is that they are so enjoyable to watch! As this one fizzed around my bath, I was mesmerized by the colours it was creating. It really is a lovely and calming thing to watch! The bath bomb took about 5-10 minutes to fully fizz-up, which left me enough time to apply a Lush Face mask! I used the 'Don't Look At Me' face mask (you can read the review here) but I only had enough left for that one time! I think I might just have to buy some more! 


After the bomb had done it's business, my bath was left a beautiful purple, which was very calming indeed! I hadn't noticed on the bath bomb itself, but I noticed my bath was glimmering slightly, and it was only then that I realized that the bath bomb had shimmery glitter in it! I don't normally like products with glitter in it because I don't want to look like a Vampire after I've had a shower (and plus, glitter always gets in places you never want it to go, and is a right pain to wash off sometimes!), but I was happily surprised to find out that the glitter didn't really stick to me as much as I thought it would! 

It did make the bath tub look like the sky just before it's getting dark; when the stars are out but there is still light in the sky, hence why the bath bomb is called Twilight!

It's also nice to know that this product is suitable for vegans and Lush are against testing on animals, so you always know that when you buy a product from Lush, you are buying a sustainable and 'do-good' product, which makes the experience all the more special!

If you have used the 'Twilight' bath bomb, let me know what you think in the comments below!

2 Minute Mug Cake!

Wednesday, 16 March 2016

I absolutely LOVE anything chocolate-cake-like for dessert, so when I found a recipe for a CHOCOLATE CAKE IN A MUG, I knew I just had to try it! I have sen a few people make some before, and I think it's a great way if you don't want to buy a whole chocolate cake or if you don't want to make a huge chocolate cake. It's the perfect size for one, or maybe two, I was quite full after mine! SO here is what we'll be making!


Mmmmmm... looks so scrummy! So, here is the recipe I used:

INGREDIENTS:

  • 4 Tablespoons of plain flour
  • 3 Tablespoons of sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons of Cocoa powder
  • 1/8 Teaspoon of Baking Soda
  • 1/4 Teaspoon of Baking Powder
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 Tablespoon of Oil (I used Sunflower Oil)
  • 3 Tablespoons of Milk
  • 1/2 Teaspoon of Vanilla Extract
  • 2 Tablespoons of Chocolate Chips (Optional)

METHOD:


IF YOU WANT TO MAKE TWO MUG CAKES FOR THIS THEN SEPARATE YOUR MIXTURE INTO TWO DIFFERENT CUPS/MUGS.

Because I was only making ONE mug cake, I literally just threw everything into my cup and mixed it together with a fork, but for you less-greedy fellows out there who want to make TWO mug cakes, here is the method!

  1. Mix together all of the dry ingredients into a small mixing bowl.
  2. Add all of the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients bowl.
  3. If you're feeling extra faboosh, now's a great time to add in those chocolate chips that you keep eating from the packet ;) Fold them into the batter.
  4. Pour the mixture into two medium sized mugs (or one huge mug). The batter should reach up to halfway-ish.
  5. Microwave for 2 minutes and tuck into those leftover chocolate chips (or you could save some for decorating the top of your mug cake!). The center of the cake should still look a bit wet, otherwise you cake will overcook and it will be a bit rubbery!

Here is the finished product! You can add any assortment of lovely-ness to the tops of your cakes, whether it be berries, nuts, NUTELLA, whipped cream, marshmallows or double cream! I added some cream to the top on mine and it was DELICIOUS!



I love this recipe as it's so quick and easy to follow, and the cake tastes GREAT! I have tried a few other recipes before and some of them weren't really 'cake-like' and were a bit stodgy in the middle and didn't taste of much... but I'm so glad I found this recipe! I hope you all like it! Let me know if any of you have made a mug-cake and leave a comment in the box below!

I'm off to demolish my cake now...

Love, K :)

V For Vendetta - Alan Moore & David Lloyd | Book Review

Monday, 14 March 2016

Rating: 4/5

"Remember, remember the fifth of November..."

'Set in an imagined future England that has given itself over to fascism, this groundbreaking story captures both the suffocating nature of life in an authoritarian police state and the redemptive power of the human spirit which rebels against it. Crafted with sterling clarity and intelligence, V for Vendetta brings an unequaled depth of characterization and verisimilitude to its unflinching account of oppression and resistance'


I had never read a graphic novel before, so I thought that this was a very interesting read! I had watched the film a few times before and really enjoyed it, so I was eager to see what the book/graphic novel was like.

As stated earlier, I had never read a graphic novel before, so I found it a bit difficult to understand the layout at first, but quickly took to it. Where I am used to just reading the descriptions of locations and can usually tell who is speaking, this wasn't the case for this book. The illustrations give you the location and the speech bubbles allow you to see who is speaking, so this was something that I had to get used to, but thoroughly enjoyed! It's quite refreshing to read something in a layout that you aren't accustomed to and actually made my brain work harder as I was looking for clues in the illustrations as to what is going on and also had to focus on who was speaking. 


Once I had gotten over understanding the layout, the story was intriguing me. I had seen the film a few times before, but not recently enough to remember what actually happened. As I was reading, some memories from the film came flooding back, but there was some content that I hadn't seen before, which was nice to read through.


Story-wise, this is a tale that I love! I'm all up for a dystopian society! It reminded me a lot of George Orwell's '1984' in a way. Although, this is quite a complex plot and I would recommend this book to someone who was over 16 years old, as it does include some graphic content.

The character of V is very elusive and upon the first meeting with him, the reader instantly want to know more about him; his true identity, his true meanings, but all is revealed at the very end for an understanding reader. I have to admit, I did find the storyline difficult to follow at times (I might blame it on me being a  'first-time-graphic-novel-reader') but overall understood what was going on. This story does make the reader think. It makes them think in the same way the V does. It makes them think like a society in ruins. This book also raises some very interesting questions and can be seen as very controversial for its time since it's first publication in 1988. As we read further into the novel we see topics such as totalitarianism, faith and identity.

I think you can analyse this book as much as you like or as little as you like and it will still be a very enjoyable read. If you do, however, decided to analyse this book, there are so many different themes to delve into and pick apart, like some of the topics/themes mentioned above.

Overall, I really enjoyed reading this book! Like I said, it was my first time reading a graphic novel and I really enjoyed the experience of a new layout and having to examine the text and images in a different way. This will certainly not be the last graphic novel that I am reading!

Let me know what you thought of this book if you have read it!

Lush 'Rosey Cheeks' Face Mask | Beauty Review

Friday, 11 March 2016

So, after using Lush's 'Don't Look At Me' face mask and seeing brilliant results, I thought I would try my 'Rosey Cheeks' face mask as well! I've heard a few good things about this mask and was asked to test it out in my local Lush store and was very surprised by it!

Firstly, this face mask smells absolutely AMAZING! Just like roses (if you hadn't already guessed by the name)! Although it's not a fancy colour like the 'Don't Look At Me' face mask (you can read the review for here) it makes up for it in the smell and it's effectiveness! 


This face mask includes Rose Oil, Calaine Powder and Kaolin. The Rose Oil helps balance and restore your skin, and also makes the mask smell like you've just planted your head into a rose bush! This also helps if you have oily skin! Calamine powder helps calm the redness in your skin, so this is a great product for even sensitive skin types! Lastly, Kaolin cleanses your skin and helps to absorb all of the dirt and excess oil on your face! This is also a clay based product, so this really is a good choice if you have combination/oily skin like I do!

To apply the product, I start off by cleansing my face or by making sure that all traces of make-up is removed before applying the mask. I think smother the mask all over my face, but making sure the product doesn't go too close to my eyes. Afterwards, it's time to relax! If you are using this product for a bath-time, now would be a great time to turn the taps on! I leave this mask on for about 10-15 minutes and then rinse off under warm water. Because this isn't an exfoliant and doesn't have any exfoliating particles, there's no need to scrub, so once again, this is great if you have sensitive skin!

Afterwards my face feels smooth and restored! My overall skin tone seems to be calm and the scent left from the mask is divine! I usually apply some moisutriser after using this face mask as where it is a clay based product, it absorbs all of the oils and usually makes my skin feel a bit dry after using, but that may be a different case for some of you :)

It is also safe to know that all of Lush's products are suitable for Vegetarians and most of their products are suitable for Vegans too! They also don't test their product on animals, so it's nice to know when you're buying from Lush that they offer all of these things and it also makes you feel good about buying a product!

Overall, I really enjoyed this product and can't wait to buy some more face masks from Lush and try them out! If any of you guys have tried this product I would love to know what you think!

Love, K :)

International Womens Day

Tuesday, 8 March 2016

Regarding my last post (which you can find here), I talked about the 17 Global Goals and which one's I was going to support. Even though I am working towards supporting those goals, I feel the need and  the right to support Goal number five, which is gender equality.

Today is International Womens Day, and Global Goals and everyone who is supporting Goal number 5 are bringing awareness to this event and day and are continuously supporting the movement towards gender equality. You can visit the Global Goals website (link here) for more information about the Global Goals. They also have a page dedicated to International Womens Day which includes charities and organisations to help progress gender Equality (which you can find here).

So, as it's a day of celebrating women and bringing to light notable charities and organisations to benefit women all around the globe, I thought I would share with you four women who inspire me! These women have impacted me greatly and have done some astounding work for the progression of women and men in today's society. So, (in no particular order) we have Angelina Jolie-Pitt, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Malala Yousafzai and Emma Watson.

Angelina Jolie-Pitt
I grew up watching Angelina Jolie as Lara Croft in the Tomb Raider films, and from a very young age have always wanted to be like Lara/Angelina in the way that they have both embarked on amazing adventures. But as I have gotten older, I admire Jolie not just for her film work, but for her astonishing humanitarian efforts throughout the years. Jolie is a UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador, but later got promoted to the rank of Special Envoy to High Commissioner, the first to take on such a position within the organization. This promotion was recognised after 10 years of humanitarian efforts. Jolie has visited many places in need of desperate humanitarian aid, such as Cambodia, Syria, Iraq and Kenya. As well as this, she has campaigned for many issues such as wildlife conservation, child immigration, community development, education, human right's and women's rights. She has also contributed and funded the building of at least 10 schools, education centers and medical centers in Cambodia. Jolie has also campaigned against 'sexual violence in military conflict zones', and in 2012 launched the 'Preventing Sexual Violence Initiative'. So, there are just a few of the amazing things the Angelina Jolie has done, and I'm sure you can see why she is one of my top inspirational women!

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
I first heard/saw Adichie in a TEDx Talk video on Youtube (which you can view here) where she talks about why she thinks everyone should be feminists. As the issue of gender equality has been very widespread on social media and on the internet this past year or so, I have never really thought about being a feminist or associating myself as one, until I watched this talk. It is a very thought provoking talk as Adichie addresses issues such as masculinity, femininity and how this has evolved throughout time. For the Beyonce fans among us, Adichie is featured in Bey's song 'Flawless' where parts of this speech was used. I really do recommend that you watch the entire speech as it truly does raise some interesting questions and made me view feminism in a different way. As well as this very famous talk on TEDx, Adichie is a renowned Nigerian novelist. Her works include Purple Hibiscus (2003), Half of a Yellow Sun (2006), The Thing Around Your Neck (2009), Americanah (2013) and We Are All Feminists (2014). 


Malala Yousafzai
Malala Yousafzai is a very inspirational young women. When she was just 11 years old, Yousafzai started writing a blog under a pseudonym for the BBC detailing her life under Taliban occupation. On this blog she also shared her views for promoting education for girls in the area that she lived in. This made Yousafzai receive a vast amount of media attention, in both print and broadcast, even seeing a documentary being made about her family and also receiving a nomination for the International Children's Peace Prize by South African activist Desmond Tutu. In October 2012, Yousafzai boarded her school bus and was shot in an assassination attempt by a member of the Taliban and survived. After being in a critical condition for many months, she was stable enough to be brought to the UK for continued treatment. She now resides is the UK and continues her work on activism and education. In 2013, Malala co-founded the Malala Fund to bring awareness to the social and economic impact of girls' education and to empower girls to raise their voices, to unlock their potential and to demand change. You can visit the website here. She continues to promote and raise awareness of female education, not only in her home country, but around the world.

Emma Watson
I think I have always admired Emma Watson, and have grown up with her watching her play Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter films. I identified with Hermione (and Watson) in many ways, mainly because I love learning and reading, and that is something that both Hermione and Watson are known for. But recently, Waston has been delving into activism, more specifically womens rights. In 2014 she was appointed as a UN Goodwill Ambassador after travelling to Bangladesh and Zambia promoting education for girls and afterwards, helped launch the UN Women campaign HeForShe (website you can find here). Her speech at the UN went viral and spawned a vast movement for the HeForShe cause. Its goal is to engage men and boys as agents of change for the achievement of gender equality and women’s rights, by encouraging them to take action against inequalities faced by women and girls.



So, as you can probably tell, these women are very inspirational and have made vast changes for the progression and equality for women an many other causes throughout the years. One day, I would hope to achieve something similar to what these women have done as activists; I want to make change, I want this world to be better!

So, help us celebrate #InternationalWomensDay by supporting a charity, spreading awareness or by standing up for womens rights! I'll now leave you with a famous quote:

If you educate a man, you educate a man. If you educate a women, you educate a generation.
- Bringham Young

The Global Goals

Sunday, 6 March 2016

I've been wanting to talk about this project for a while now in one of my posts as I think it's an amazing project! The Global Goals consist of 17 'global goals' with 169 targets that aid in developing a better world for everyone; humans, animals and the environment, by the year 2030. It was set up by the UN (United Nations) in September 2015 and many of the goals are already backed by many celebrities, business leaders and world leaders.


The 17 Global Goals are listed as:
  1. Poverty - End poverty in all its forms everywhere.
  2. Food - End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture.
  3. Health - Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages.
  4. Education - Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all.
  5. Women - Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls.
  6. Water - Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all.
  7. Energy - Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all.
  8. Economy - Promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all.
  9. Infrastructure - Build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization and foster innovation.
  10. Inequality - Reduce inequality within and among countries.
  11. Habitation - Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable.
  12. Consumption - Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns.
  13. Climate - Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts.
  14. Marine-ecosystems - Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development.
  15. Ecosystems - Protect, restore and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, and halt and reverse land degradation and halt biodiversity loss.
  16. Institutions - Promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all and build effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels.
  17. Sustainability - Strengthen the means of implementation and revitalize the global partnership for sustainable development.

Everyone is encouraged to support one 'Global Goal', but as there are some many important issues that I care about, I found it very difficult to decide on just one!


In the end, I decided to support goal 14 and 15 as I believe that we need to support our planet as it is the only one we have. I have always had a deep connection with nature and just love to wander in forests and see things grow! I have also always lived by the sea, so the ocean also holds a dear place in my heart! I would hate to live in a world where my children couldn't wander in forests because of deforestation. I would hate to live in a world where my children couldn't swim in the sea because of ocean pollution! Animals on both land and in the sea need protection and we need to be the one's who can promise a new generation that by 2030 these goals will be achieved!


WAYS TO GET INVOLVED:

If you want to find out more information about the Global Goals, you can head over to their website at www.globalgoals.org or you can watch this video by Michael Green at a TED convention! It's a very interesting video as it talks about when and how we can achieve all of these goals in the time-span given.


On their website they have a page where you can view all of the charities you can support to make the Global Goals a possibility! You can view that page here! They also have a page dedicated to images you can use and share on all kinds of social media, from quotes, infographics and the goals itself! You can view that page here!

I hope you can support a Global Goal! I know there are so many to choose from, each with their own importance, but please make sure you support one (or more if you wish!) so we can make our world a better place to live in! 

Love, K :)

World Book Day 2016

Thursday, 3 March 2016

World Book Day has to be one of my favourite days of the year! World Book Day is usually celebrated on the 23rd of April each year, but here in the UK, Ireland and Wales we celebrate it on the first Thursday of March, and this years that's the 3rd of March, which is today! When I was in Primary school, I used to LOVE getting dressed up as my favourite book character for World Book Day! I have dressed up as Harry Potter, Matilda and Cinderella, but sadly do not have any pictures to prove it :( It was always such a fun day and I always really enjoyed making my costume and looked forward as to what character my friends would dress up as!

In the UK, World Book Day celebrates the wonders of reading and is mainly aimed at young children and pre-teens to encourage them to read, although I personally think World Book Day should be celebrated and aimed at everyone as there are adults who do not read and should be encouraged to do so!

I believe reading is very important to people of all ages and backgrounds as it allows us to connect with the characters created which in turn exercises our imagination! It also helps with how we speak, our spelling, our vocabulary and overall mental health among many other things!

I have recently made a video on my Youtube channel about World Book Day and talk about the event in general and about my favourite Wolrd Book Day book from the past!


The books available this year are:

Nursery

Kipper’s Visitor by Mick Inkpen
Supertato: Ha-pea ever after by Sue Hendra and Paul Linnet

KS1

Daisy and the Trouble With Jack by Kes Gray
The Great Mouse Plot by Roald Dahl

KS2

Welcome to the World of Norm by Jonathan Meres
Star Wars: Adventures in Wild Space by Cavan Scott
Harper and the Sea of Secrets by Cerrie Burnell
The Boy Who Could Do What He Liked by David Baddiel

KS3

Spot the Difference by James Dawson
Kindred Spirits by Rainbow Rowell by Rainbow Rowell

Let me know if you have got any of these books for World Book Day, or tell me what your favourite World Book Day book is!

Love, K :)

Lush Bath Bomb | Dashing Santa | Beauty Review

Wednesday, 2 March 2016

I got this bath bomb as a present for Christmas and have only just had the chance to use it! It was part of Lush's Christmas Range and unfortunately they are no longer selling it, but it will be back in stock near the Christmas period! So if any of you lovely folk have one lying around in your bathroom like I had, you best start running a bath!


This bath bomb is made using  Bergamot and Mandarin oil, as well as Orange Flower so it has quite a zesty and citrus feel to it, perfect for those who like the smell of dried oranges over the festive period! As soon as it dropped it into my bath it began to fizz away, slowly making the bath water turn a pale red. Overall, the bath bomb took about 10 minutes to fully dissolve, so that give you plenty of time to relax or even apply a face mask! 

I really enjoyed watching the bath bomb melt away into the water, and this one was quite foamy! The different colours burst away and left a trail in the water and I have to say, it was quite mesmerizing! 


The whole bathroom was filled with the zesty scents of the bath bomb and I was feeling totally relaxed! My skin felt pampered and as I don't usually use bath bombs, I really enjoyed having my bather water turn a different colour and the scents lifted my mood.

I have to say, being a new user to Lush products, I am loving the experience so far! I love that their products are suitable for vegetarians and most of their products are suitable for vegans too and they are against testing their products on animals, so I really feel like I've made a good choice whenever I buy a product from Lush! 

I hope you have enjoyed this review, and let me know what your thoughts are of this bath bomb if you have used it already!

Love, K :)

Lush 'Don't Look At Me' Face Mask | Beauty Review

Tuesday, 1 March 2016

A while ago, I went on a Lush Haul (you can watch my video about it here) ad I bought some really great items! I don't really go to Lush often as there isn't a store near me that is very local, so whenever I do go, it's always a good journey away!

I am a lover of face masks and scrubs (you can see my other face-mask/scrub reviews here!) so I was looking to find a new one that made my face feel cleansed and fresh, and I found the perfect one!



Lush's 'Don't Look At Me' Fresh Face Mask was a delight to use! It is a bright blue colour, which instantly attracted me to the product! I tested it in the shop and only after a few minutes of sampling it on my hand, my skin felt a lot smoother.

When talking to the shop assistant, he told me that the mask has ground white rice in it which acts to exfoliate your skin whilst your scrubbing! The product also contains organic Lemon juice and Grapefruit oil for a refreshing feel. I loved the colour of this mask as it made me feel like some sort or warrior applying face paint to scare off  deadly invaders!


If any of you have read my reviews before, you'll know that I have quite troublesome skin. My skin is quite oily and I'm always dealing with spots and redness, but after using this mask on the first try I could instantly see the difference! My skin looked healthier, refreshed and all of the redness had gone! IT WAS AMAZING! I was gawping into the mirror afterwards just to try and get a closer look at my own skin! 

For best results for this product, please ensure that you remove any traces of make-up before you apply the mask onto your face. Smother the mask all over your face, but avoid going too close to your eyes! Leave it for about 10-15 minutes and then wash and scrub away! 

I personally like to leave it on for about 15-20 minutes and then apply a bit of water and scrub at it for a few minutes to really exfoliate my skin and then wash it off.

Overall, this is a fantastic product and I can't wait to buy more of Lush's face masks from their range! I will definitely be buying this again! And it is also nice to know that most of Lush's products are suitable for vegans, use organic produce for their products and that Lush are against animal testing! So whenever I buy a product from Lush, it's nice to know that I'm not supporting cruel behavior towards animals and am supporting the use of organic produce!

Thank-you for reading this far! I hope you have fond this review helpful! Let me know what you thought of Lush's 'Don't Look At Me' face mask in the comments below!

Love, K :)
