I love me some Fresh Faced Masks from Lush. Whenever they have a new vegan one, I gotta check it out. I talked about Rosy Cheeks already, so now let's talk about Don't Look At Me.
This bright blue mask has a lot to offer. It's got lemon juice to brighten, ground rice to gently exfoliate, and murumuru butter to moisturize in a base of kaolin clay.
The texture really reminds me of like frozen yogurt or sherbet. The color only adds to that! The scent is herbal, it's not the greatest but it's not terrible either.
Despite my super sensitive skin, I didn't have any issues. The rice was ground enough that it wasn't tough on my skin. I can say that my flaky skin, which I had some around my nose and chin, was buffed away with ease. I was impressed!
What really stood out to me was this murumuru butter. I know nothing about it, like I can barely pronounce it. Lush did a better job explaining it than I did, so the following paragraph is taken directly from their website:
"Murumuru butter is the white to yellowish fat obtained from the seeds of the murumuru palm.
The murumuru palm trees grow in Brazil and around the Amazon and are a dominant tree. It’s one of the dominant trees in this region. It has a thick trunk and a shuttlecock-shaped bushy crown.
The nutritious, edible fruits are an important local food source and materials made from the tree, fruit and seed kernels are commercially significant to the region. Hammocks are made from the tree’s fibres.
Murumuru butter is highly emollient and moisturizing. It’s also film-forming and naturally glossy. These qualities make it very protective. It contains vitamins and has a high content of beneficial oleic acid. The oil from the seeds is traditionally used to soften and protect hair."
Basically, it's awesome. I was amazed by how soft my face was afterwards. Like I thought I had stuff left on my face afterwards that I couldn't wash off, I couldn't believe my face was that soft.
You can only find this in Lush stores because it's so fresh it needs to be refrigerated. It's $10.95 and totally worth it!
