Review: Lush's Cosmetic Warrior Mask

4/30/13

Ironic, as a cosmetics addict, that I'd be using a mask called "Cosmetic Warrior" but as you would have it, I am! I've used products with weirder names before (like Orgasm, Rage, or Topless&Barefoot - can you guess what each of these guys are?).

Today, I'm really going to review this item, since I've been able to really use it a few times. 
This mask is definitely a quick mask, after about 5-7 minutes I can feel it tightening and it's time to take it off! It smells amazing, like... amazing, almost as if I've put blueberry candy on my face - not too sweet and not too tart. 

Cosmetic Warrior Mask: "A cooling, calming, deep cleansing blueberry mask for sore and troubled skin."

Love the feel of it, it's almost like clay but not as thick. 

The Cosmetic Warrior mask on my skin. 

Texture: Like I've just stated, the texture is great: it's not too thick. It goes on the skin smoothly and a thin layer is all you need. There are small blueberry chunks but nothing daunting or too large that it would fall off, were you to walk around your house (I hate it when that happens).
Packaging: Lush masks all come in a pot with a screw top. I'm not sure if this is the most sanitary way of keeping a mask, I'd prefer a small squeeze-bottle with a wide hole (for any fruit chunks in the mask). But these are recyclable! 5 empty pots back to Lush earns you one free mask pot :) 
Product: On my skin, the product feels nice, but at first I was scared it would dry out my skin. I was happy when I took it off, that not only did it completely cleanse and calm down my skin, it really locked in the moisture. This is probably one of the only Lush masks where I really enjoyed the smell! It smells like delicious blueberry candy. It's easy to apply, but a little bit difficult to take off. One down side is that this mask only lasts 3 weeks, the expiration date is short so be sure to use this as per the expiration date! 
Long-term effects: I'm happy to report that my skin is calmer, and that I have fewer blemishes since applying this. I tend to get stress/hormonal blemishes on my chin but this has really helped me out. While moisturizing my skin just the right amount, for combination skin, it has helped clear my skin and brighten it as well. As my boss put it "you look so fresh faced today!", but I didn't share my secret with her ;)
Price: These guys are not so expensive, about 7$CAD each and you will get 4-5 uses from each pot. 

I'm giving it a 7/10, docking points for the quick expiration, the packaging and it could be a little more pleasant to apply! I would definitely repurchase this, the benefits it gives my skin are great. 

So far, this is my favourite Lush mask!

What do you ladies think? Do you have any favourite Lush masks?

    1. Hi! Thank you, I always love getting feedback :)
      This product is definitely worth a try if you have a few blemishes here and there but not serious acne.
      I haven't tried Avene yet, any favourite masks?

    1. They're great, the only downside is their quick expiry. I suggest going and asking the SA's for the best mask for you skintype, it's an nice thing to be able to relax with!
