From the past couple of weeks, I have been on the hunt for a refreshing face mask for myself. If you know me well, you would know how much I love LUSH and all their products. The store smells so frickin good! Also, the variety of products that they have is insane. From luxury bath bombs to masks to soaps, they've got it all! 

When I entered the store, one of their sales girls walked up to me and we got talking about all things skincare. I had already done some research myself and heard good things about their Catastrophe mask. People raving about this mask described how invigorating their skin felt and how it helped in calming the redness on their face from acne. 

Believe it or not, I have slathered every product possible on my face to help calm my angry skin. With Lush, I know that their stuff smells amazing and I am going to see results. Even if I don't, at least I'm putting organic, fresh ingredients on my face and not a whole lot of crazy chemicals. I was really excited to try this out. This particular mask has some great ingredients like fresh almond oil, blueberries, chamomile blue oil and sweet wild orange oil to name a few. It claims to reduce redness without stripping the skin of its natural oils. For dry, acne-prone skin like mine, I needed an exfoliating mask like this. What I do is, I apply a thin layer of this mask and let it sit for about 10 minutes (as instructed in the box) and rinse it with warm water while it is still not completely dry. 

I have only tried this once but I am already in love with this. Not only did my skin feel rejuvenated, it also had an instant glow! Definitely recommend this to anyone who has acne-prone skin that is dry. I still have to use it regularly to see results but I am quite impressed with it in the first use itself. Also, extra points for the fragrance - smells fantastic. 

Hope you enjoyed this review and let me know what kind of posts you would like to see!
