Hi guys! I hope you’re all starting the month with positive attitude and lots of gift planning. I’m so excited for Christmas, and I bet November’s going to pass by pre-tty quickly as I have so much stuff to do.Moving on, today’s post, as the title states, will be about my first impressions on my new facial mask (another Lush fresh facial mask yes!). For those who have no idea wht I’m talking about, you might want to quickly scan my first post on the matter.
Lush Fresh Facial Mask: Oatifix
For my third fresh facial mask from Lush, I decided to try Oatifix (got this from returning 5 empty pots).
Oatifix is supposed to hydrate, exfoliate and treat your skin ( it costs £6.95 for 75g on Lush.com ). I just can’t stop loving Lush facial masks, why should I? my skin loves them.
“This gentle, nourishing mask is made with fresh bananas and illipe butter to moisturise dry skin. Oatmeal, ground almonds and kaolin work together in a mildly exfoliating base to eradicate dead skin, leaving you soft, supple and moisturised. Smooth a generous layer of this mask onto your face and leave for 10 to 15 minutes and let the ingredients get to work before washing off gently with warm water”.
List of ingredients
Fresh Organic Fair Trade Banana
Organic Illipe Butter
Perfume (safe synthetics)
I love reading the ingredients on every product, it gives me that comforting feeling that I know what I’m putting onto my skin, this is why I love Lush (yes I’ll say it again and again).
First impressions on this product
I’ve never been disappointed in buying Lush products, I was really looking forward to finishing my Rosy Cheeks mask so I could try this one out (and yep not disappointed).
Let’s talk about the smell first people, when I smell my facial mask, it makes mes hungry for some oatmeal (obviously) but not some king of oatmeal, a really special one. Well just see it for yourself if you think I’m crazy … but I loooove the smell!
Another thing I like about this, is that it’s so fresh on your skin (you have to keep it in the fringe to conserve its freshness). It’s that fresh that it wakes you up instantly even though you’re already dozing off while your doing your facial scrub + mask routine … just kidding.
Lastly and most importanly is the effect it has on your skin. I have to say, this is yet another discovery for me, I am currently loving this product. Although I do not really agree on the scrubbing effect (not that I mind because I scrub my face using Ocean Salt before putting on my mask) the hydrating factor is top notch, no need to apply moisturizer after you rinse.
For sure I recommend this product!
