My skin has been super mega sensitive lately which is pretty terrible, because my skin is already quite sensitive at the best of times. I love face masks, but have to be careful about what I use since my skin tends to react badly to parabens, alcohols, perfumes, and tea tree oil (I’m actually ALLERGIC to tea tree oil). Since I was at the Lush store to buy shampoo and conditioner I decided to see if they had any face masks that would work for my weirdly sensitive skin.
After looking at a few different masks (and smelling them, of course), I decided to buy Catastrophe Cosmetic Fresh Face Mask. Fresh Face Masks are preservative free, so you have to keep them in the fridge in order to prevent them from going bad, and because of this, they can only be purchased in-store.
Here’s the description from the website:
Prevent disasters by taking regular care of your skin with our deep-cleansing, nutrient-rich blueberry mask. The little blue bulbs are packed with vitamins, and blended into calamine, rose absolute and chamomile blue oil to soothe redness, irritation and cleanse the skin without stripping it of its natural oils. This one is wonderfully soothing on sensitive skin. Treat your face to Catastrophe Cosmetic as often as you can to keep your skin looking its best.
Sounds like a perfect fit for me!
I’ve used it at least four times since purchasing, enough times that I feel that I can give a solid opinion. I just used it again this morning. After washing it off, my skin feels like it has been deeply cleaned, and it feels soothed and less irritated. It has a very faint blueberry scent, not offensive at all. As will all clay based masks, if you leave it on too long it will start to crumble and flake off everywhere. I find that the easiest way to remove it is with a wet cloth to remove most of it, followed by a couple splashes of water to get any bits and residue left behind. I will definitely be buying this one again!
Catastrophe Cosmetic Fresh Face Mask comes in a 60g tub (which is recyclable, and if you turn in 5 of containers, they give you a free face mask!), and costs $6.95 CAD. As I said above, the Fresh Face Masks can only be purchased in the store due to being preservative free.
Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day!!! ❤ ❤ ❤
