Catastrophe Cosmetic|Lush Product Review

Don’t worry, the experience wasn’t a catastrophe at all. A few weeks ago, 3 to be more precise, I decided to try a calming and moisturising fresh face mask from Lush.


The Catastrophe Cosmetic face mask is packed with blueberries, calamine and chamomile, rose, and almond oils to soothe and soften the skin.


You just need to smooth a generous layer of this mask onto clean skin and leave for 10 to 15 minutes. I use cold water (you can also use lukewarm water, but avoid hot water) to remove the mask while massaging my face. You can feel a softer skin straight away.


The ingredients:

Blueberries are rich in vitamins and minerals that protect and rejuvenate, helping to repair sun damage and give you a gorgeous glow.


Calamine is soothing, antiseptic powder derived from natural mineral deposits and ferric oxide. It has a high concentration of zinc oxide – an incredibly active material that has the ability to reflect UV rays. This means calamine is often used as (and in) sunscreen to protect and care for the skin.



Chamomile blue oil is used to improve the condition and appearance of the skin, hair and scalp, as well as for its soothing and calming perfume which blends beautifully with other essential oils.


Irish moss has a softening, soothing feel on the skin and hair and a very gentle cleansing effect.

I’m going to review a different mask every month, but for now, this one is definitely IMG_0297approved and recommended! The only thing I would say is that with a use by date you feel a bit rushed to use it all up before it expires. It’s great for me because it will make me stop being lazy and take care of my skin more often, but some people might not like it.


If you’ve tried this mask, please share your experience on the comments’ section. If you have any facial mask to recommend please feel free to share it too.
