Lush Catastrophe Cosmetic Fresh Face Mask

Happy Good Friday everyone! I hope you're enjoying your day off :) I slept in today, such a nice treat!

I normally choose Lush's Cupcake, and you can see my review here. While I thought that nothing could top my love for this mask, but I thought I should venture out and try something new. I was recommended Catastrophe Cosmetic by a Lush employee, since it is made for similar skin types as Cupcake. So, I picked up a little black jar of Catastrophe Cosmetic, and I couldn't be happier! This mask might just be my all time favourite face mask, and I think I like it more than Cupcake!

Catastrophe Cosmetic contains blueberries, camomile, Irish moss, and almond oil, and is a greyed out blue colour. There are small pieces of what I assume are blueberries in the mask. The scent doesn't astound me in the pot, but I absolutely love it once it's on my face! I can't really describe it, it's very soothing and light. You'll have to visit a Lush store to check it out for yourself!

Before I use a face mask I exfoliate, and right now I'm using Benefit's Refined Finish Facial Polish, which I am loving! Then I apply the mask all over my face in a thin layer, avoiding my eye area. Lush says to leave the mask on for 5-10 minutes, but I normally leave it on for longer, about 20 minutes. I just love having a face mask on! The mask will harden, but not so much that it's uncomfortable. I rinse with water, and my face is left incredibly smooth and soft! I really couldn't believe how soft and moisturized my face felt the first time I used this mask!





I also love Lush's recycling program, you bring back 5 clean Lush black pots, and you get a free Fresh Face Mask! Score! I got 7 uses out of this one pot of Catastrophe Cosmetic, which was awesome. I highly recommend this mask to anyone who loves Cupcake but wants to try something else out, or who just loves Lush and wants to try one of their face masks. :) Have you tried Catastrophe Cosmetic?

  1. That's really odd, they must have changed it since i worked there as it use to be pinky in colour. Anyway fab face mask I swear by this, it's great on my spots, and leaves my skin soft too.

    1. Oh really, weird! I always remember it being blue, but I could be wrong. I love it, it's gentle but so soothing and hydrating! :)
