REVIEW: Lush Cosmetic Warrior Face Mask

Bye bye breakouts

Last month I was invited to the first birthday party of Bloggers United Australia, which was held at the new Lush store in Perth’s CBD.

It was an awesome event, especially for us beauty lovers as Lush showcased their awesome products and let us try a few things (if you want to know the deets of this event, The Illusive Femme wrote a great post).

To top if off, they let us choose one product off the shelves to take home (yeah, they rock!) and I chose their natural face mask Cosmetic Warrior.

Lush Cosmetic Warrior Face Mask

Lately I’ve been really breaking out on my chin, so I told the friendly girl at Lush I wanted a really deep cleaning skincare product.

She immediately recommended Cosmetic Warrior face mask, heralding it as a ‘superhero’ product for its cleansing, calming and antiseptic benefits.

Because it’s made by Lush, Cosmetic Warrior is made entirely of natural ingredients, including:

  • Kaolin (a naturally occurring soft clay) – deep cleaning
  • Grapes – anti-oxidants
  • Honey – antibacterial
  • Garlic – antiseptic
  • Tea tree oil – antibacterial and dries out spots

Lush Cosmetic Warrior review

It also contains free range egg, so you need to keep it in the fridge and you only have about a month to use it up before it expires, so don’t forget about it!

I used Lush’s Cosmetic Warrior face mask once a week for three weeks. You apply a thick layer and let it get to work for 5-10 minutes. The longer you leave the mask on, the tighter it gets. Your skin gobbles up the ingredients, while the creamy clay remains.

The garlic and tea tree in the formula dominate the other ingredients, so that’s all you can smell when you cake it on. This is a bit off putting, but don’t worry, it doesn’t leave a scent on your skin once you’ve cleaned it off.

I washed it off with a muslin cloth, and each time my skin was left feeling refreshed and incredibly clean. My face also felt hydrated, which really surprised me as it contains so many ingredients that work to really clean the skin, not moisturise it.

As for my bad boy pimples, they really decreased in both size and number. Now instead of 2-3 juicy ones plus a few smaller, I only have 2 or 3 tiny red dots left, so it has worked a treat!

If you suffer from breakouts, give Cosmetic Warrior a go and feed your skin some spot fighting food.
