This little face mask I most recently left out of my latest LUSH & Body haul maybe because I’ve hoarded my fair share of face masks recently (*hides in shame*). I was surprised to find that there’s been a whole host of new face masks added to this section and I just had to try one of them out.
“A simple blend of kaolin, calamine and Turkish rose oil to delicately calm the skin and restore balance. Whether you’re feeling hot and bothered or just fancy showering your complexion with roses, cleansing calamine and kaolin will gently remove dirt while exquisite rose oil nourishes and tones your face.”
Personally, I look for generally more calming face masks. Ones that are suitable for sensitive skin, ones that are for slightly more dry and/or dehydrated skin and just generally more ‘my face feels like a desert right now’ skin types. This face mask is supposed to combat exactly that.
One thing that differs this face masks to the others from LUSH is how ‘normal’ it looks. Rather than little lumps and bumps and bits of seaweed in this face mask (looking at you BB Seaweed), this face mask has quite a smooth texture. It has no overwhelming smell and smells slightly of roses. (hence the name) This face mask was just so much more appeasing to try out, just simply because A. it didn’t smell B. Easier to wash off
This mask is neither moisturising nor crazy detoxifying. It lies quite nicely in the middle for sensitive skin types. It feels very soothing, but also does the job cleansing wise. The main ingredient in this face mask is Calamine Powder, which is Zinc Oxide. From doing a little bit of googling, I’ve noticed that this ingredient is used to treat rashes, sunburn or just generally irritated skin. It’s a slight antiseptic as well.
Naturally, this face mask is very soothing, if you’ve got irritated skin it might be one to try out. I’d say this mask is pretty much suitable for all skin types. Even if you’ve got acne, blemishes or eczema it might be one to try out if you find yourself scratching your skin or irritating it. The skin type for this face mask is exactly what it says on the pot, for those with rosey cheeks.
