#BeautyCrush: How I made my own Lush Fresh Face Mask

I’m sure most of you know of Lush, the ‘natural’ handmade beauty products. Well, talk about handmade, I got invited to their store in The Dubai Mall yesterday and actually got to make one of their fresh face masks!!

I chose the clarifying ‘Cup Cake Mask‘ which is really good in soothing the skin & getting rid of those impurities.

The recipe:

1. Linseed infusion

2. Glycerine

3. Cocoa powder (clarifying)

4. Rhassoul mud (which absorbs excess oil)

5. Fresh mint (for clearer & brighter skin)

6. Cocoa butter (to softens the skin)

6. Sandalwood oil to soothe & calm redness

Mix the whole lot and off you go! The mask has to be refrigerated and can only be kept for 3 weeks.

Apply the mixture on a clean skin, leave-on for 10 mins and rinse off for a clearer, brighter skin!

Oh and it smells gorgeous enough to eat (but don’t!)!!

These truly are handmade on a daily basis.

Whilst I was there, I bought myself a few treats which I’ll be sure to try out and review!

I selected the Porridge Soap which gently exfoliates the skin AND smells delicious, the Pop Corn Lip Scrub made of coconut and jojoba oils, sugar, sea salt and polenta which are the perfect mix to buff your lips to perfection and leave them smooth & moisturised and finally the amazing Ro’s Argan Body Conditioner.

Time to go try these little gems!!
