A Mask to Solve My Skin Woes... Lush Mask of Magnaminty Review

Friday, 30 August 2013

Having clear skin for me is an unusual and heralded occasion, it doesn't happen often and it requires lots of hard work to achieve it, so when I find a product which gets me one step closer to perfect skin, I grab tight and don't let go. First it was Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish as my holy grail product and now my beloved C&P has been joined by Lush; Mask of Magnaminty.

Mask of Magnaminty is a 'face and back pack' a rather gruesome green colour, with a strong minty smell, this mask is definitely one of my skincare favourites. I've been using this mask for about over a month now, using it twice a week on problem areas. I generally pop it on when I get out the shower, and whilst it's on I put on my body lotion; two birds one stone hey?!

What I love about Mask of Mag' is that it's gentle yet effective, I only leave it on for about 10 minutes max, it feels a little tingly and cooling because of the mint, and leaves my skin feeling super smooth. I love using this in the morning as my skin is the perfect base for make-up after using it. I have tried Lush Cupcake before but it was a little harsh for my skin.

Another major plus for me with this mask is that it doesn't need to be kept in the fridge, it is not a fresh face mask and has a much longer shelf life, and it's a great face mask for those on a tighter budget, as one tub lasts ages!

Having clear skin for me makes all the difference, it increases my confidence, I wear less make-up and feel better about myself. I am not as self-conscious as I used to be about my skin but I still feel uncomfortable when my skin flares up, especially if people see me without make-up. And thankfully Mask of Magnaminty is miraculously helping me and I'd recommend it to anyone!


  1. My skin has been awful at the moment so I will definitely have to try this, thank you for mentioning it :)

  2. I keep reading about this and wanting to try it but always forget when I'm actually in town near Lush :L it always gets positive reviews!

  3. Oooh I really want to try this now, my skin has not been too happy of late so I'm willing to try anything! xx

  4. This is one of my all time favourite Lush products. I love the cooling, tingly mint feeling.
