Review: Lush The Sacred Truth Fresh Face Mask

Whoa man it's Wednesday!! That means exam tomorrow!!!!! I haven't had time to prepare a post this week so this is a something I prepared a month a go (reminds me of those cooking shows and here's what we prepared earlier lol).
................................................................................................
The other day I was in the city, I walked past the Swanston St Lush store. I thought to myself that I haven't bought any Lush face mask in a while so I picked up The Sacred Truth Fresh Face Mask. The lady at Lush said this was the best seller of the day so I gave it a go.

According to Lush "The truth is, we all need protection from ageing. The vital antioxidant action of wheatgrass, ginseng and green tea combines with fresh papaya, cleansing clays and nutritious butters to defend the skin. This mask delivers live, fresh, active ingredients, which enhance and refresh the complexion. Apply to clean skin, avoiding the eye area. Leave for five to ten minutes, and then rinse away with warm water. Keep chilled."
Application: Apply a thick layer on a clean face avoiding the eye area. Leave for 10 mins then rinse off with water.

Additional info:
  • Made in Australia
  • RRP $15.95 75g
  • Not tested on animals

What it feels like: A smooth thick texture. From the photos it reminds me of black sesame ice cream.

What I like:
  • Does not irritate my skin
  • Leaves skin feeling soft

What I dislike:
  • My face felt oily the following morning
  • Not a fan of the scent of this face mask, smell lingers for a while
  • A little harder to wash off, I had to use a wash cloth to get most of it off

Overall: This face mask isn't for me but everyone's preference and skin type is different. Personally I wouldn't buy again. My all time favourite Lush face masks is still Love lettuce and BB seaweed, they are so awesome my face felt so smooth and clean.

Thanks for reading!!!

  2. I really like this mask, it makes my skin feel bouncy and tightened in a good way. I'm also not a fan of the scent though.

  4. Oh good luck with your exam tomorrow hun! I'm sure you'll do well! :)
    This one sounds a bit... odd? I actually have never used a Lush mask, and have never even heard of this one? I have heard of the Lettuce and BB Seaweed though, so not sure if she was telling the truth in being a best seller ;) haha!
    Either way, you gave it a go, now you know what works for you!

  7. Sounds amazing! I've yet to try fresh masks, I feel like they're gonna be wasted because I can't use them too often, but maybe I'll just go for it!

    1. Hi Judy, they usually have an expiration date of about 3 weeks so gotta use it quick otherwise they get moldy.

  8. Lush masks drives me up the wall! Lol!! I'm not one to use them everyday cause I don't actually have the spare time to use them as often and I felt like I was in a race with the expiration date! I did enjoy the cooling sensation on my face when I apply the mask cause I always keep them in the fridge! Perfect for summer! =D

  9. I love the LUSH face mask too... This one is on my next shopping list. I'm currently using BB Seaweed. I find that I need to use a wash cloth on all of there masks. I'm hoping it will make my skin more moist :)

  10. It totally looks like black sesame ice cream :) I'm a fan of the love lettuce mask as well but don't use Lush masks often because of the short shelf life.
