Lush Fresh Face Masks Comparison

I was a bit surprised when I was told by the Lush staff that their fresh face masks are one of their best and finest products. I have tried out 7 out of the total of 9 Lushe Fresh Face Masks and even if I'm missing two more masks to try out (BB Seaweed and Love Lettuce), I still wouldn't agree with that opinion. I do believe that Lush has much better products than these face masks and Mask Of Magnaminty is by far better than all of these sever I've tried, combined together. That's my favourite mask of all time by the way and there's only one fresh face mask that comes close to it. These will be a rather quick seven reviews because I've only tried sample sizes of all and you need to have my type of skin in mind. It's mixed with dryish cheeks and not as oily T-zone, it's slightly oilier than the rest of my face. I get occassional breakouts but I don't suffer from severe acne or oily skin. I do have blackheads on my nose, my under-eye area is prone to millia if I use inadequate products and I think I don't have fine lines yet. I will be only 26 in a few months after all. Also, masks are very individual products and even if we share the same skin type, you might be allergic to some ingredients because Lush masks are freshly made from different ingredients, some even bothered me and my skin isn't as sensitive. The downside of these masks is their shelf life which is up to a month if you keep it properly in the fridge. I wrap them in kitchen foils and then store them in the fridge.

Bila sam malo iznenadjena kada su mi Lush djevojke rekle da su njihove svjeze maske za lice jedni od najboljih Lush proizvoda. Isprobala sam 7 od ukupno 9 Lush svjezih maski za lice te iako mi jos dvije fale (BB Seaweed i Love Lettuce) kako bih imala sveukupno formirano misljenje, ipak se ne bih mogla sloziti. Stvarno sam misljenja da Lush ima mnogo boljih proizvoda od ovih maski a kada smo vec kod maski, Mask Of Magnaminty mi je bolja od svih sedam koje sam isprobala zajedno. To je moja omiljena maska svih vremena i postoji samo jedna od ovih svjezih maski koja joj je blizu. Ovo ce biti relativno kratkih sedam recenzija posto sam ipak isprobala samo testne kolicine i morate uzeti i moj tip koze u obzir. Koza mi je mjesovita sa blago suhim obrazima a T-zona mi nije nesto posebno masna, blago je masnija od ostatka lica. Ponekada mi se pojave male aknice ali ne patim od ozbiljnog oblika niti mi je koza izrazito masna. Na nosu imam mitesere a podrucje ispod ociju mi moze izbaciti milliu ako koristim neodgovarajuce proizvode te mislim da jos nemam neke izrazene fine linije. Uostalom, tek cu napuniti 26 godina uskoro tako da nije ni ocekivati neke bore. Isto tako, imajte na umu da su maske izuzetno individualni proizvodi te cak i da dijelimo isti tip koze, moze vam se desiti da ste alergicni na neki od sastojaka jer su Lush maske napravljene od najrazlictijih svjezih sastojaka. Neki su cak i meni zasmetali a koza mi nije narocito osjetljiva. Negativna strana ovih maski je to sto dosta kratko traju, do mjesec dana ako ih pravilno cuvate. Ja ih umotam u kuhinjsku foliju i onda ih stavim u frizider.


1) Lush Cupcake Fresh Face Mask

Now this face mask is made for young, oily prone skin which should calm down any redness. First of all, I love the chocolate smell. I am a chocolate junkie and I can never, ever have too much chocolate. It smells great (it smells of what? of choclate, duh) and looks great, just like dark cocoa chocolate. It's a bit on the dry side so pay attention not to flake it off while applying. I resolved that issue with splashing my face with lukewarm water prior to applying it. This is a fun face mask, it's not the srious zip-zapper so don't expect miracles. It balanced out my skin, the smell felt really relaxing and it was a very pleasant mask to use. It does make my blackheads on my nose appear smaller but that's a temporary effect. I don't think you can treat serious acne with this one but it definitely is a joy to use if you are in a search of a fun, simple and delicious mask.


Ovo je maska za lice koja je namijenjena mladoj kozi sklonoj aknicama i koja bi trebala umiriti crvenilo. Prije svega, jako volim miris cokolade. Ja sam ovisnik o cokoladi i nikada, bas nikada mi je ne moze biti previse. Super mi mirise (pogodite na sta? na cokoladu) i izgleda super, bas poput tamne cokolade za kuhanje. Malko je suhe teksture i treba paziti da je ne rasipate dok je nanosite. Ovo sam rijesila tako sto se umijem mlakom vodom pa je tek onda nanesem na lice. Ovo je zabavna, neobavezna maska, nije cudotvorno rjesenje za ozbiljne bubuljice. Meni lijepo ujednaci ten, miris mi djeluje opustajuce i generalno mi je bilo ugodno koristiti. Umanjila mi je izgled mitesera na nosu ali mislim da je u pitanju kratkotrajan efekat. Mislim da necete imati previse uspjeha ako ovom maskom mislite tretirati ozbiljnije oblike akni ali je u svakom slucaju jako ugodna za koristenje te ako ste u potrazi za zabavnom, jednostavnom i slasnom maskom – to je to.

2) Lush Ayesha Fresh Face Mask

This is a tightening mask and you should adjust your expectations to that intent. It's of a creamy texture and of a very herbal smell, nothing fancy but it isn't off-putting either. I just shouldn't have put it on my entire face because it made my poor dry cheeks too tight. I'd use it on the T-zone alone but do know that even this tightening effect is temporary and it doesn't soak up lots of oil. It just tightens skin. I think it's worth a shot if you have enlarged pores. I wouldn't use it on dry skin because it can dry your skin even further. It's classified as a mask for mature skin and I reckon that's where the tightening comes in the picture. I cannot attest wether it does something to fine lines (not to mention wrinkles) but I bet it's a pleasant placebo effect.

Ovo je maska za zatezanje lica i bilo bi pozeljno ako bi toj spoznaji prilagodili svoja ocekivanja. Kremaste je teksture i mirise izrazito biljno, nije neki posebno fancy miris ali nije ni neprijatan. Mislim da je nisam trebala nanijeti na cijelo lice jer mi je jadne obrascice isusila. Koristila bih je na T-zoni ali imajte na umu da je efekat zatezanja privremen te da u biti ne upije ogromnu kolicinu masnoce sa koze. Jednostavno zategne kozu. Mislim da ako imate prosirene pore, vrijedi je isprobati.Ne bih je koristila na suhoj kozi posto je moze dodatno isusiti. Navedeno je da je namijenjena zreloj kozi i to je vjerovatno i razlog tog efekta zatezanja. Ne mogu svjedociti da li stvarno nesto cini finim linijama (da ne spominjem borama) ali se kladim da ima jako ugodan placebo efekat.

3) Lush Oatfix Fresh Face Mask

This is a yummy face softener in a jar. It smells like banana, cookies, nice pastry and oats. Very likeable and delicious smell. This is a good face mask for dry, flaky skin. It balanced out my cheeks perfectly but I wouldn't go near my T-zone with it. It's not for oily skin, it only makes it oilier and somewhat “slippery”. But dry skin will really like it. It is a bit like a porridge regarding consistency. A kid in me felt so good slathering it on. It didn't sting or irritate and made my cheeks and dry skin patches very soft and smooth. I like this face mask and it never break me out besides being creamy and nourishing. Really great for treating chapped, dry skin during winter months.


Ovo je slastan omeksivac za kozu u posudici. Mirise mi po bananama, kolacicima, finom prhkom tijestu i zobi. Jako dopadljiv i slastan miris. Ovo je dobra maska za suhu, perutavu kozu. Moje suhe obraze je jako efektno balansirala ali joj ne bih dopustila ni blizu da pridje mojoj T-zoni. Uopste nije za masnu kozu, moze je samo uciniti jos kliskijom i masnijom. Ali suha koza ce joj itekako biti zahvalna. Po pitanju konzistencije je malo slicna kasi. Djetetu u meni je bilo skroz zabavno razmazujuci je po licu. Nije me pekla niti mi je iritirala kozu a obraze i suhe fleke je dosta omeksala i zagladila. Svidja mi se ova maska za lice i nije mi izazvala aknice i pored toga sto je tako kremasta i hranljiva. Jako je dobra za tretiranje ispucale, suhe koze tokom zimskih mjeseci.

4) Lush Sacred Truth Fresh Face Mask

This is a face mask for mature skin but I loved how passionately recommended it was to me. It has a fairly strong smell which I like but if you don't prefer heavily scented products, be wary. It's creamy, it distributes nicely on the skin and is quite pleasant to have on. At least I thought before it started to heat up. I don't like anything with heating, warming effect and I was actually scared that I was having an allergic reaction due to the heat. I stick throught it and rinsed off but there was no redness in sight which would be the case if I was indeed having an allergic reaction. I am thinking that the eggs it contains might be guilty. My tummy reacts badly to eggs, maybe my skin doesn't tolerate them either? Who knows. I did have nice and soft skin afterwards but I wouldn't try it again. I probably tried a product for mature skin too early in my life. 

Ovo je maska za zrelu kozu ali mi se dopalo kako mi je sa takvim zarom preporucena, morala sam je isprobati. Prilicno je jakog mirisa koji mi se srecom dopada. Ipak, ako ne podnosite proizvode jakog mirisa, budite oprezni sa njom. Kremasta je, lijepo se razmazuje i prilicno je ugodna na licu. Barem sam tako mislila dok mi se nije pocela zagrijavati na licu. Ne volim proizvode koji zagrijavaju kozu i stvarno sam mislila da je u pitanju alergijska reakcija na neki od sastojaka. Izdrzala sam svo vrijeme koliko treba odstojati na licu ali kada sam je saprala nije bilo nikakvog crvenila. Bilo bi crvenila da sam alergicna na nesto iz sastojaka ali eto, nema ga. Sumnjam da su mozda jaja koja sadrzi “krivci” jer mi ih stomak tesko preradjuje pa sam pomislila da ih ni koza ne tolerise? Tko zna. Poslije maske mi je koza bila fina i meka ali ne bih je ponovo isprobala. Mozda sam jednostavno previse rano isprobala proizvod za zrelu kozu.

5) Lush Brazened Honey Fresh Face Mask

This is heavenly scented of honey and I used to sniff it around my house since I loved the smell so much. It's texture is a bit grainy and it can be difficult to spread but if you're over the sink, no need to worry. Due to its grainy texture it's nicely exfoliating and you can feel it scrubbing your skin while you're applying it and rinsing it off. Believe it or not, this one is intended for oily and congested skin. I say that because based on the smell, I'd thought it's for dry skin. I did notice it minimizing my blackheads on my nose and it did the job amazingly. It really does help with getting rid of them. I think it's a great mask for combination skin because it doesn't dry out the skin and yet it gets rid of impurities. What I am on the fence is the tingling sensation. Eggs strike again, just more toned down this time? It isn't too strong, goes away when the mask dries but if you're sensitive to such products I think that it's good to know this. 

Ova maska bozanski mirise po medu i cesto sam znala hodati po kuci, sa njom u ruci dok je snjofam. Toliko mi se miris dopao. Tekstura joj je malo zrnasta i malo je nezgodno razmazati po licu ali ako to radite iznad umivaonika, nema problema. Zbog te malo zrnaste teksture lijepo pilinguje kozu dok je nanosite i kada je sapirete. Vjerovali ili ne, ona je namijenjena za masnu i necistu kosu. To kazem zbog mirisa jer bih na osnovu njega pomislila da je za suhu kozu. Primjetila sam da mi stvarno jeste ublazila mitesere na nosu i to je odradila odlicno. Stvarno ih smanji. Mislim da je dobra za mjesovitu kozu posto je nece isusiti a fino je ocisti. Ono oko cega jos nisam sigurna je blagi osjecaj da mi koza trne. Ponovo jaja u sastavu napadaju, samo ipak dosta blaze nego sa proslom maskom. Nije neki previse iritantan osjecaj a i nestane cim se maska osusi. Ali ako ne podnosite trnjenje mislim da je ovo informacija na koju bi trebali obratiti paznju.

6) Lush Catastrophe Cosmetic Fresh Face Mask

This is my favourite of all fresh face masks and the one that comes close to Mask Of Magnaminty regarding the effect it has on my skin. Catastrophe Cosmetic is an all-round winner in my book. It smells very fresh, pleasant and of a beautiful blueberry juice. Very enticing and fruity. It looks amazing as well. It's a mix of blues and purples and every time you pick up some more out of the jar it releases a beautiful blueberry blue tint. I find it very entertaining for some reason. It's deeply cleansing and it's texture is similar to clay. I love that because I really dislike “wet” face masks. It can be somewhat difficult to distribute when you take it out of the fridge but I love the “dry” texture and how it's cooling on my skin. The smell de-stresses me as well and I truly enjoy in the entire face mask experience. When I rinse it off, it leaves my skin so clean and matte. I usually don't like any mattifying products but this one feels so pleasant. Skin is soft and smooth to the touch but feels very “dry”, without any excessive hydrating effect, fingers aren't slippy when they touch the skin. It's hard to describe but I love it. I also love that I can use it on my entire face. It does make my dry skin areas tight but not dry or flaky. T-zone is marvellous and clean afterwards. It also gets me rid of bulgeoning undersurface acne (over night usually). I really love this face mask and it's just a little bit less effective than Mask Of Magnaminty.


Ovo je meni omiljena, moj apsolutni favorit od svih svjezih Lush maski za lice i to je ta maska koja mi po efektu na kozu slici Mask Of Magnaminty. Catastrophe Cosmetic mi po svemu odgovara. Mirise jako svjeze, ugodno po prekrasnom soku od borovnica. Jako mi je privlacan miris i vockast. I lijepog je izgleda. To je mjesavina ljubicastih i plavih tonova a svaki put kada prsticima zagrabite komadic maske, otpusti prekrasno borovnicasto-plavu boju. Iz nekog razloga mi je to strasno zanimljivo. Duboko cisti kozu i tekstura je slicna glini. Meni se to svidja jer uopste ne volim “mokre” maske. Moze biti nezgodna za razmazati po licu ako je nanosite odmah po vadjenju iz frizidera ali mi se strasno svidja “suha” tekstura i kako mi lijepo hladi kozu. Miris me rijesi nakupljenog stresa i uopsteno uzivam u citavom procesu njenog koristenja. Koza je poslije nje tako meka i glatka na dodir i dosta je “suha” u smislu da nema nikakvog filma na njoj, nije ljepljivo hidratantna i prsti nece kliznuti kada predju po kozi. Tesko je opisati efekat ali sustina je da mi jako odgovara. Super mi je i sto je mogu koristiti i na cijelom licu. Suhi dijelovi budu blago zategnuti ali se ne perutaju. T-zona je u fenomenalnom stanju poslije koristenja. Pomaze mi i da se jako brzo rijesim (preko noci) potkoznih bubuljica u nastajanju. Mnogo volim ovu masku i samo je za koplje manje efektna na mojoj kozi od Mask Of Magnaminty.

7) Lush Cosmetic Warrior Fresh Face Mask

This is by far the least loveable mask I've ever tried. Let me rephrase that, I haven't tried it at all because it's so off-putting to me. I don't even hate the garlic in it because (this is embarrassing) I actually like the fresh smell of raw garlic (I know you're probably disgusted by me right now) and I actually smell the strong tea-tree more than garlic inside. What I find completely revolting is how it looks, it's texture. It looked like it had mushrooms inside, bits of mushrooms. It has the color of sappy mushrooms, dark bits of something inside and a wattery liquid that's floating around the jar. There's no way I'm putting that on my skin. I've read that it's great for blemishes and oily skin but I can live without it. This one I have no idea how I'd ever get myself to get near to. My stomach feels a bit disturbed when I think of it. No. Just no.

Ova maska je ubjedljivo najodbojnija maska koju sam probala. Ustvari, zelim to preformulisati. Uopste je nisam imala petlje isprobati jer mi je toliko odbojna. Cak mi nije grozan ni bijeli luk u njoj jer (ovo je malo nezgodna informacija) meni se cak i dopada miris svjezeg bijelog luka (vjerovatno vam se sada gadim). Ono sto mi je jace, sto preovladava je zestok miris ulja cajevca. A ono sto mi je potpuno odbojno je izgled ove maske, njena tekstura. Meni djeluje kao da su u njoj komadici gljiva. Boje je gljiva koje nisu bas najsvjezije, neki komadici necega koji su tamnije boje i neka vodenasta tekucina koja se prelijeva preko nje. Nema sanse da cu staviti to na svoju kozu. Citala sam da je odlicna i jako efektna po pitanju akni i masne koze ali mislim da cu prezivjeti i bez nje. Jednostavno nemam pojma pod kojim uslovima bih je stavila na kozu. Stomak mi je osjetljiv kada samo pomislim na nju. Ne. Jednostavno ne.

      Jako su one privlacne i ako "kliknes" na prvu sa mirisom odredjene maske to djeluje jako obecavajuce. Ipak, opreza nikad dosta jer ja barem nisam znala da sam na neke sastojke osjetljiva.

      Onda pretpostavljam da ti koza naginje ka suhoj? I meni je ta maska odlicna za suhe dijelove lica i krasno mi mirise 🙂

    Super post! Ja sam vala probala smao Mask of Magnaminty i obozavam je. A onda su se zatvorili i kraj 🙂

    • April 7, 2013 / 12:23 pm

      Hvala ti puno <3
      Mask Of Magnaminty i meni jeste najbolja a mene je dosta sokiralo da se u Srbiji zatvorio Lush, iskreno, pomislila sam kakve su onda sanse da u BiH ostane otvoren? Nadam se da ipak hoce, stvarno su mi bliski srcu 🙂

  2. April 7, 2013 / 11:23 am

    nisam probala nijednu masku ali bih definitivno volela da ih probam 🙂
