What LUSH says: “Can you handle the truth? The truth is, your skin needs more regular maintenance and care as you get older. As you age, your dermis is thinning, losing its elasticity and ability to retain moisture, which can make the skin appear dull or sallow. Don’t fret! Taking care is easy thanks to this nutrient-packed mask. The Sacred Truth contains a powerful combination of rich, softening ingredients like linseed, eggs and shea butter to deeply moisturize and nutritious wheat grass, papaya, green tea and ginseng root to restore essential vitamins and brighten skin.”
Oh man has it been a long time since I’ve had a Face Mask Friday post! I’ve missed it! How’s your skin looking? A little dull? Lack luster? Needs a little somethin’ somethin’? LUSH has got what you need! Dull skin beware, you’ve met your match.
You all know I love making my own masks, it’s one of my favorite things to do. But there are some nights where I don’t feel like getting all of my ingredients out to do the work, and I just want to be lazy. Enter in this mask. This mask helps draw out all of the impurities from your pores with the Kaolin Clay and also uses enzymes from the Papaya to help exfoliate and brighten the skin.
What’s amazing about this mask is that even though it contains clay, it doesn’t strip your skin of moisture. In fact, my skin always feels so soft and balanced after I take this off. The Honey, Yogurt and Glycerin really help put the moisture back in your skin. I was a little skeptical about Talc being in it, but I haven’t had any breakouts or clogged pores from it. It seems to just help everything adhere to the skin smoothly and evenly.
I usually leave this on for about 10-15 minutes, before it gets too crackly dry and then gently rinse it off with warm water. My skin looks and feels much more even and balanced after. This mask is truly a LUSH favorite of mine!

I wish there was a LUSH in Idaho, I’d be the happiest girl in the world. But for now I’m just going to have to rely on friends to grab some for me when they come back home from Seattle.
I’m thinking about recreating some DIY masks modeled after LUSH. Anyone want to see that? Let me know!
