Lush Brazened Honey - the cure to hung-over skin?

A little while ago I went on a little spree in Lush and picked up Brazened Honey fresh face mask. It's said to be a powerhouse of effective ingredients for all tired skins, exfoliating, detoxifying, stimulating, and nourishing. If you've never used one of Lush's fresh face masks before, they are basically completely natural and contain no preservatives. While this is great, it also means they have to be kept in the fridge and run out of date pretty quickly. Each pot probably contains enough product for about ten uses, and has a sell by date of about 5 weeks, so it works out to about 2 uses per week. As the product has to be used in a certain amount of time, it may even make you use face masks more...well this is the way I try to look at it. It makes me feel less guilty for spending £5 on a product that only lasts just over a month.

The first time I used Brazened Honey I wasn't entirely impressed as I had a few spots on my chin and it didn't feel like it deeply cleaned my skin and got rid of oil like I had needed at that point. But after trying it another two times I have fallen completely in love with it for the following reasons:

  • It smells gorgeous, kind of like incense, and the smell stays on your skin for ages after use
  • After taking the mask of my skin felt incredibly soft and supple
  • When I applied my moisturiser after using the mask, it completely sank in rather than just sitting on top of my skin

My overall review on this mask is that it's the perfect product for if your skin is looking tired or hung-over!

Have you got any recommendations for Lush fresh face masks or any other Lush product you love?




  1. I haven't been overly impressed with Lush face masks in the past. I've used about three and none have done anything great for me so i don't really have any recommendations for you. I love all other Lush products though! Especially the bubble bars, and i am a serious fan of the lip scrubs :)
