Champagne Review: LUSH Warrior Mask

You get what you pay for. When I put on the Freeman Avocado & Oatmeal clay mask, my face felt like it was on fire. I’m not exaggerating either, I was calling my friend saying “It burns! Does that mean it’s effective?”

That was when I decided that I need a facemask replacement. So I tried Lush’s Warrior Mask since I’ve read some raving reviews on it. So here’s what I have to say.



Brief Description
This facemask contains all fresh indigents- including garlic. This must be refrigerated. It lasts up to 3 weeks then you must throw it out.

The warrior mask is meant for people with pimple prone skin. It is also meant to heal the skin and pull out the excess oil. It all sounds great except the overwhelming garlic scent!


Smell
It smells okay/good when it’s cold, but after you apply it on your face you can smell a mixture of Garlic and something equally unpleasant.


Price
$8 for the small can. Each can lasts up to 8 times but you have to throw it out in 3 weeks. So it's fairly resonable.


Effectiveness
I used the whole can and I didn’t get any new pimples but it did not get rid of my current blemishes either. So the result is inconclusive. Though I did feel refreshed after using the mask.


Last Words
I won’t buy this product again since it doesn’t smell pleasant, and I’m not sure if it’s effective on treating blemishes or pimples.

If you have trouble smelling then you will do fine with this mask. But if you’re like me who is used to good smelling things, or if you want to have a kissable face for your bf after the mask, DON’T BUY IT.

    Hmmm... when I was there, I didn't see any couples proposing or anything. The place was swarming with tourists. Imo, I think it was too cold to feel romantic hahaha

  13. umm...i wouldnt want to try this mask since it smells like garlic.

    as for the photoshop thing, i always save them as jpg format and sometime theres a color different after i save it but there is always a color different when i upload them. i mean i use to have window computer years back and never face those problems until i photoshop with mac. so i don't know if its because of the computer or what.

  15. Ew. Smells like garlic? I actually have 2 masks in the fridge now ... the Blazened Honey and The Sacred truth. I dont think any of those help with acne but the smell of it is great. Honey obviously smells like honey and some herbs, and the first time I tried sacred truth, it smelled fruity-ish, but I end up looking like Shrek cuz of my green face.haha
