My hubby asked me if i had my breakfast on my face, typical man. My response was no, but it smelt & looked like my breakfast. I had put on the Oatifix Fresh Face Mask from Lush. I have declared WAR on my face. I have been hunting out hydrating products & came across this face mask whilst in Lush. I have tried their Love Lettuce Mask a few times and really liked it, but noticed on the blurb the Oatifix one is aimed at dry skin.
I know i said in a previous post that my skin was really acting up and was over the top oily, i booked in for a Facial and the lady said that although i had a slightly oily T Zone my skin was in fact really dehydrated. So i have booked in for a Hydrating Facial next week. I will let you know how i find it. In the mean time i have been slapping on the night cream & thought it best to try and hydrate before i go back.
‘A mask for dry skin.
Bananas are a very rich oily fruit – so are perfect for a mask that is trying to get goodness into dry skin. Also in here is illipe butter to moisturise the skin and leave it supple.
Oatmeal, ground almonds and kaolin bind the ingredients and act as a very gentle scrub to lift dead skin away and leave the face looking brighter. A soft fragrance based on vanilla absolute finishes off this nourishing mask.
Altogether, a gentle mask that is perfect to feed dry or sensitive skin.’
I agree. I found it to be quite thick to apply and hard to spread, i put a fair amount on and waited about 2 minutes until it had warmed up to my skin temp then i found it alot easier to apply evenly to my whole face. It smells exactly like breakfast porridge and made me quite hungry. The Oatifix Mask is one of Lush’s Fresh Face Masks and states on it that it needs to be kept in the fridge so that is where it lives. Very cold too.
The mask doesn’t harden or make your face feel tight. I left it on for a little over 10 mins then washed it off in the shower. I used the mask in the morning and noticed that after using it my skin was quite bright and felt smooth. I barely used any, so the 75g tub will do quite a few masks. I am looking forward to using it and seeing the results.Oh and its £5.75 for 75g that’s not a bad deal.
What masks are you using and do you know of any good ones for re hydrating sad tired skin.
