Assalamualaikum and hello lovelies!
Yeahhhh the review is finally here! hahaha I apologized for the long wait, it is totally my fault due to my carelessness. :D Today I will be sharing with you lovelies my favourite face mask at the moment which is the Mask of Magnaminty from LUSH! ^_^ I included this face mask in my January 2014 Favourites and also my 2013 Beauty Favourites. Check out the links if you haven't read that. :)
Mask of Magnaminty is face mask that can be used as back mask too. This mask contains China clay and fresh peppermint that helps to deep clean your pores and leaves your skin squeaky clean. Ground Aduki beans is also included in this mask to exfoliate flaky and dry skin. Other ingredients such as vanilla is used to calm redness and honey to soothe troubled skin. Mask of Magnaminty is one of the LUSH's 'fresh' range therefore you need to use the mask in the duration given. For example, my Mask of Magnaminty was made on the 26th November 2013 and will expire on 26th February 2014. The duration is 3 months but just check your tub for the expiration date. The reason for the short shelf life is because LUSH 'fresh' range does not contain chemicals that usually used to keep a product's shelf life longer.
LUSH is against animal testing and the plastic pot or tub is made out of 100% recycled plastic.
The texture of Mask of Magnaminty is very thick. It has harsh particles which I believe is the Aduki beans. When you touch it, it is a bit wet and cooling. The scent is definitely peppermint. The way to apply this mask is as same as you apply any clay mask. Cleanse your face, apply the mask all over your face and neck, avoiding your eye and lips area. Let it sit on your face for 15 minutes.
The moment I apply it on my face, I can instantly feel the cooling sensation. I really like that! Reaching towards the end, I can feel my skin tightening and you know it's time to wash it off. After 15 minutes, rinse it off with water. Massage your face while rinsing it off. Despite being a clay mask, Mask of Magnaminty does not leave my skin dry. I do not experienced the 'tight-feeling' after using. As a matter of fact, my skin feels soft and supple, I enjoy that feeling! I have dry/combination skin so at first I thought this would be too drying for me, but I was wrong. I use this mask once or twice a week after exfoliating my skin to get best result. What I noticed is that, whenever I have break outs and I use this mask, it totally helps to calm down the redness. I highly recommend Mask of Magnaminty if you have acne-prone skin or if you have that occasional breakouts. I can really feel that this mask really pulling out all the impurities I have on my face.This mask can be a great deep cleanse mask! I love this mask so much but sadly LUSH is not available in Malaysia. WHY OH WHY??? :( But if you happens to be in Singapore (that's the closest to Malaysia) or any parts of the world that have LUSH, make sure to check out this mask. ^_^
