An Introduction to Lush

Lush has been a brand I've never really been into. I always walk past their shops and the heavy scent puts me off and immediately makes me think it's all artificial but when I had a spare few hours I decided to take the plunge, go in and speak to an advisor.
To me, lush seems reasonably priced. I went in with the intention of getting some information about face masks and came out with a purchase and a little tester.

Lush Brazened Honey: £5.95/75g, Mask of Magnaminty: £4.95/125g

When I look for skincare I'm always looking for something to unclog my pores and brighten my skin - after telling the advisor this, she recommended the Brazened Honey mask to brighten and Mask Of Magnaminty for my problem areas.

The Brazened Honey mask is a fresh face mask that has to be kept in the fridge, it roughly lasts around a month and comes in a little pot which the advisor said would get 7-8 applications out of it. The mask is a thick grainy texture which dries on the skin and once the 5-10 minutes has passed, I exfoliate my skin using the grains in the scrub and wash off.
I notice after I've used this my skin does seem brighter and smoother. I apply the mask to my cheeks and forehead while the Mask Of Magnaminty is on my nose and chin. The only thing I dislike about the Brazened Honey mask is the scent, it's not overpowering or off putting, it's just something I'm not too keen on.

The advisor kindly gave me a little sample of Mask Of Magnaminty after telling about problem blackheads. Unlike the other mask, this has a strong minty scent which I like. To maximise effects of this mask, I cleanse my face beforehand with hot water to open pores then apply this mask to problem areas, which are my nose and chin. I leave this on when the other mask is on and again, it dries hard. It's tingly which really makes me feel like it's working. I'm looking to clear blackheads and I think so far so good, this seems to be reducing them in size but I'm not sure about removing them, I think I need something more industrial for that.
I've also noticed that blemishes have appeared on my nose and chin but I think that's a good sign that it's working - fingers crossed!

Do you like Lush? Have you tried any of their face masks/skincare products?
