Since becoming a mum, pampering myself has taken a bit of a back seat in terms of things that I have to do on an everyday basis. I manage to shower every couple of days and wash my hair, but dry shampoo has become one of my best friends and you’ll often see me without make-up on. I know that I should be taking care of myself as much as taking care of my daughter, so I’m really trying to spend some time on myself – reading, taking baths and making more of an effort to do things that make me feel good – and I really am trying. So, recently, I decided to take a look in my local LUSH store and see what I fancied treating myself to. I picked up the Sleepy body lotion to aid in my ongoing quest to get a full night’s sleep (at least 9 months and counting) and also decided on the Mask of Magnaminty. I don’t have skin that is prone to breakouts, but it was incredibly well-reviewed online and it smelt amazing, so I decided it could only do my skin the world of good.
From the LUSH website:
“A minty, multi-purpose mask with a mixture of gentle yet effective ingredients, including honey and kaolin, to help you maintain your magnificent skin.
Easily smoothed over the skin, this mask is made with peppermint oil to stimulate, marigold oil and chlorophyllin to treat the skin; evening primrose seeds and aduki beans to gently exfoliate as you wash it away.
There’s mineral rich kaolin to nourish, honey for its antibacterial properties, and we used just the right amount of peppermint oil to stimulate blood cells under the surface of your skin and leave your skin looking bright and refreshed.”
This is easily the best face mask I’ve ever owned and have had to stop myself from using it several times a day. When it runs out, I will definitely be stocking up on the larger pot and do not regret treating myself to this little tub of heaven one bit. Everyone will have their own skin requirements when it comes to picking up products like this as everyone is different, but I can truly recommend this if you are considering it. I’ve not been someone who has raved about all of the products from LUSH, as I feel that they are quite a luxury when I’m trying not to spend too much on beauty items, but I won’t hesitate in looking into getting more. I think next time I’ll treat my hair to something special!
