Review: Lush Ayesha Fresh Face Mask

Every year since I started blogging, I have written more reviews on Lush than any other brand. I especially love the Lush Fresh Face Masks, but they are super pricey in Japan, being around $17 vs $7 in the US. I always stock up on a few when I go abroad!  This time, I picked up the Lush Ayesha Fresh Face Mask.

Lush Fresh Face Masks are made with fresh ingredients and do not contain preservatives. In many Lush stores, they are stored chilled and should be kept in the refrigerator at home.  Lush stores tell you to use them up pretty quickly, so I put these masks in single use containers and freeze them.

What it does: (from the Lush US website)
Ayesha is a blend of tightening and toning ingredients to refresh tired-looking skin. We use vitamin C-rich kiwi to brighten dull spots, asparagus to nourish and absorb excess oils and honey for hydrating and soothing red areas. This fresh mask is named after the fictional priestess who discovered the secret to immortality – ten minutes with it on and you’ll see why! Dull, tired and mature skin transforms for a bright, youthful glow.

Price: $6.96 for 2.1 oz in the US, 6.25 GBP for 75g in the UK. Although the UK price looks more expensive, it contains 25% more product.

Scent:  I didn’t think it was so bad, but many other bloggers commented that they really dislike the smell. I thought it smelled like the typical herbal smell of many Lush products.

Availability: Lush is available at Lush stores in several countries around the world. Although you can buy many Lush products through Lush’s website, this product is only available in stores.

Pros:

  • This product really brightened up my skin, although the effect was temporary
  • I felt that the product absorbed the excess oil in my skin without drying it out

Cons:

  • The smell, if you don’t like it.  
  • If you want a product which really absorbs oil, I recommend the Lush Mask of Magnaminty, which is much stronger than this product
Would I repurchase?  Maybe. This is a nice product if you want to see an immediate effect.  I might buy it again in preparation of a special event.
Hope you enjoyed this review!
