♥ Review: BB Seaweed Fresh Mask by Lush ♥


As promised in my Lush haul, I've been waiting to use this mask for a few weeks before reviewing it for you. I picked up the BB Seaweed Fresh Face Mask almost at random, I just read a few positive reviews and went for it. Here is what the website says about it:

'Created especially to care for sensitive skin, BB Seaweed is a best-seller for its soothing, smoothing effects. No surprises here, it’s packed with none other than the ocean greenery itself! Seven pounds of it in each batch, in fact. This locally-harvested, nutrient-rich seaweed nourishes the skin, while finely ground almonds ever-so-gently exfoliate leaving skin perfectly smooth. We use a generous helpings of aloe vera gel and rose absolute to calm and soothe sensitive spots, and a gorgeous combination of honey and olive oil to moisturize. You look beautiful, BB!'



And actually, this is exactly what it does! This is a very gentle mask, that will soothe your skin and give it moisture. Every time I use it, I am amazed at how soft the texture is. It almost feels like apply whipped cream to your face, I thoroughly enjoy the process. Because the texture is so rich and creamy, you don't need to use much product each time. The bits of seaweed are soft too, and provide a gentle cleansing effect. If you're looking for a proper scrub, you should not go for this mask as it is more targeted as sensitive skins I'd say.
The only downside to this was that unfortunately, this mask is too moisturising for me! I have oily skin, and I wanted this mask to keep my skin from dehydration in the colder months. I think I was planning too far ahead, because as it's not really cold yet, my skin isn't in much need of moisture. As a result, my skin tends to get oily more quickly when I use this mask than when I used the Love Lettuce mask for example. This is a personal thing however, and I love this mask nonetheless because it really does what it says on the box and I know it'd work perfectly for me this winter.

So if you have a rather sensitive skin, in need of moisture and gently cleansing, then this is the one for you! Also, the skin looks so bright and clean and pretty when you wash it off, it is quite amazing I have to say!

Have you ever tried the BB Seaweed mask? Do you have a favourite face mask for this time of year?
