Review // Lush Cosmetic Warrior Fresh Face Mask

My skin at the moment is TERRIBLE. I'm not over-exaggerating. Not one bit. I think the problem is wearing make-up day in, day out but as my skin is so bad, I feel the need to cover it up with more make-up. Anyone else get this feeling?My skin feels and looks grey and oily. I have dozens of spots and gosh, don't get me started on blackheads.. Luckily I may have a product that could possibly cure all of my problems. Enter, Lush Cosmetic Warrior Fresh Face Mask.

What Lush say about Cosmetic Warrior:
"Spots! Oily areas! Blackheads! The frustration of having breakout prone skin can incite aggressive, 'industrial' type cleaning. Unfortunately, breakout prone skin is very sensitive, so using harsh cleansers can actually make the problem worse. Don't over attack your skin; lead it firmly down the path to salvation with Cosmetic Warrior. Cosmetic Warrior is kind to problem-laden faces thanks to moisturizing egg white and honey, which smooth and tighten the pores. Antiseptic garlic and tea tree oil effectively clean and disinfect spots for a fresh, clear face."

How to use Cosmetic Warrior:
"Cleanse your face and pat dry. Smooth a good dollop of Fresh Face Mask over your entire face, making sure to avoid the eyes and mouth. Leave the mask for about ten minutes (do not allow the mask to dry completely). And finally, wash off with warm water and follow with your favourite toner and moisturiser."

Ingredients:
"Kaolin - Cleanses and exfoliates dead skin cells and debris from the surface.
Fresh Green Grapes - Degreases the skin and gives a thorough cleanse without stripping moisture from the skin.
Organic Free Range Eggs - Maintains healthy skin.
Honey - Moisturising and antiseptic.
Cornstarch - Thickener.
Glycerine - Carries effective ingredients into the skin.
Fresh Garlic - Antiseptic and deep-cleansing which helps to reduce spots and clears the complexion.
Tea Tree Oil - Antibacterial and antiseptic.
Limonene - Sweet, lemon-like odour which is constitute for essential oils.
Perfume - Fragrance."

I have to say, whilst in Lush the lovely girls in the shop were incredibly helpful and were more than happy to help point my sister and I in the right direction with what we were after. They found out what we wanted and picked out products they thought would be perfect for us so, as daunting as it is going into a shop like Lush and having someone ask you if you want help, say yes!

Onto the Face Mask. It is Fresh and has fresh ingredients so it needs to be kept in the fridge and it only has a short shelf life, usually about a month, so don't forget about it as I imagine it will smell a little funky after a while. Also, if you have any relatives that are prone to delving into tubs packed safely away in the fridge, tell them to get their mitts off as, as much as it looks like hummus, I doubt it tastes like it.

Cosmetic Warrior - which, in itself is a fantastic name - comes in a standard 75g black twist-up pot. Inside the mixture looks like hummus with small green pieces in it throughout. If it doesn't look appealing then my gosh, does it not smell it. I can honestly say, hand on heart, I have never smelt anything like it before. And I hope to never again. I applied Cosmetic Warrior how it is suggested, in an even layer all over the face. It is suggested that you leave the mask on for around 10 minutes but I had to take it off after two. The smell alone was so strong and so off-putting, I simply couldn't stomach it. Also, having lumps of grapes slathered onto my face was slightly bizarre and I found myself picking them off as the sight repulsed me!

So far, so bad. After taking Cosmetic Warrior off after it being on the skin for two minutes I was shocked at the results. My skin instantly looked more perked up, any oilyness on the skin had subsided and face felt beautifully soft. Because of this, I will keep at it in hope of getting long term results and I am interested in how it will improve my current spotty situation. I just wish the smell wasn't so bad.

  1. I absolutely love cosmetic warrior, it makes your face feel amazing! I was a bit put off by the weird texture but I actually didn't mind the smell. If your suffering from breakouts try Cupcake. This smells scrummy and makes you feel just as fresh.
