Lush Oatifix Fresh Face Mask

Today I'm back with another Fresh Face Mask from Lush! This time I'll be reviewing Oatifix ($6.95/60g), which is meant for dry to very dry/flaking skin. Now, my skin isn't super dry, but I do love a good hydrating mask, so that's why I decided to give Oatifix a try!

"Few things are more soothing than a big bowl of banana porridge, all sweet and squishy. Did you know the same is true for your skin? Sensitive, dry or irritated faces love Oatifix for its calming oats, softening mashed banana and ground almonds to slough away flaky skin. Keep in mind that dry skin doesn’t just occur in the winter! The sun can be equally harsh, as UV rays penetrate the dermis and heat can leave you feeling tight and dry. Use Oatifix year-round on sensitive, dry skin in need of nourishment to keep it flexible and soft." - Lush

First things first (I'm the realest), this mask smells amazing! If you like the scent of bananas, then you need to check out Oatifix. Banana is one of my favourite scents (and fruits), so of course I love the scent of this mask. There are also notes of vanilla and oatmeal, making this a very calming, relaxing scent.

Oatifix is a very rich, creamy mask. The second that I started to apply this mask, I knew that I would love it. This formula has an oily base, which makes it very hydrating. There are small chunks of banana and oatmeal, but this mask actually stays together quite nicely, and I didn't have any issues with it being too messy. I left this mask on for 15-20 minutes, and then rinsed off with warm water. My skin felt incredibly smooth, hydrated, and calmed. Oatifix definitely gives my skin an intense boost of hydration, but it didn't leave my skin looking or feeling oily.

I think that Lush's Oatifix would be the perfect mask during the cold Winter months, but I'm surprised that I'm also loving it in the middle of Summer. My skin loves moisturizers and hydrating masks, so it really shouldn't have been a surprise to find that I really love Oatifix. If you have dry skin, or skin that just loves to be pampered, I would highly recommend checking out Lush's Oatifix! This is a fresh face mask, so you need to keep it in the fridge, and it has a three week lifespan before it will expire. Have you tried Oatifix, or any of Lush's other fresh face masks?
