Lush Cosmetic Warrior Face Mask



Firstly, I'd like to apologise for not blogging in so long! I have been extremely busy with uni work recently but I'm going to make it my New Year's resolution to be more organised so I have time for blogging and uni work. Anyway, I better get cracking with today's review...

Introducing you to Cosmetic Warrior from Lush. This is the first time I've bought this face mask (and to be honest I meant to pick up Catastrophe Cosmetic - the similar names confused me!) and I'm really enjoying it. The face mask contains tea tree, which is an ingredient that has always worked well on my face, garlic, grapes, eggs, and honey. This product cools my skin and tightens it - thanks to the grapes and eggs. I suffer from quite oily skin but after wearing this face mask for 10 minutes my skin feels drier (without being unbearably dry) and cleaner. If I have spots, I find that they heal quicker after using this face mask than when I don't use it at all, however, it's not a miracle overnight worker. Also, if my skin is really bad, I can use this product on consecutive days without it being too harsh for my skin and my face won't become too dry. The only downside to this face mask is the smell - it's probably due to the garlic but I really dislike the smell of it. Although, you might like the smell of this face mask; it's just not my cup of tea!

In the future I think I'll stick to Catastrophe Cosmetic because it has a similar effect on my skin as this face mask does (but with a nicer smell!). Have you tried any of the Lush face masks? If so, which one is your favourite?

    1. It's not the most pleasant smell! I'd definitely recommend Catastrophe Cosmetic if you're looking for a face mask with similar benefits to Cosmetic Warrior x

  5. Catastrophe is my favorite cold cream from Lush. The smell is just wonderful and it always leaves my face feeling super soft and brings down any blemishes I may have.

  6. This mask is sounds INCREDIBLE! I love using their masks but often their smell is a bit of a turn off, which is why Catastrophe is my favourite mask too :)

    Just stumbled across your blog and excited to see what else you’ll be posting this year! Looking forward to keeping in contact!

  8. A great, honest review! The garlic scent must be a real pity and especially as Lush are renowned for such gorgeous smelling products!

  9. I've tried a few Lush face masks in the past and really liked them, but not sure I would be too on board with the garlic smell!

    1. Lush make great face masks - and this is a great face mask too, it's just the smell that isn't too great! x

  10. I have been meaning to stop into Lush! I'll probably avoid this one (I think I'll stick to using garlic for my food) but the Catastrophe Cosmetic sounds great!

  16. I've not heard of this one before, it's a shame it didn't suit you so well. My skin tends to respond well to tea tree so maybe I'll still give it a go xx

  17. This sounds so good but I know what you mean about the smell. I can't stand the smell of any lush face masks and I remember the garlic one in particular haha. At least it's natural I guess!
