I Review - Mask of Magnaminty

On my way to the #Zomgblogger blogger bash I spotted a Lush store in the station, I made a hasty dash, all while frantically trying to remember the many recommendations that I have seen by beauty bloggers.
So in I go, looking at the names in hope that something comes back to me... no, my dreadful memory fails me once again!

Being my usual chatterbox I start jabbering to the sales assistant and was recommended Mask of Magnaminty.

I was promised by the sales assistant that this wouldn't cause my skin to break out into an ogre faced cretin, being somewhat sceptical that any new face products will bring all the nasties to the surface and let's face it (sorry dreadful pun) there is never a good time for a break out is there! So I decided to leave starting a trial on this product until I had a few weeks with less social engagements.

I have used this product once to twice a week for about 3 weeks now, I am so happy with it! The sales assistant didn't fib, I didn't break out in spots, my skin feels lovely and soft and I have seen a slight improvement in it's over all appearance and condition.

Warning, it does make you look like Princess Fiona when you use the mask!
When the mask is on there is a slight cooling feeling, this is not uncomfortable, it easily washes off and leaves no residue. The idea of the mask is to exfoliate, it can be used on the face, neck, back or if you really wanted anywhere on the body.
It's created for sensitive skin, it has peppermint oil in it designed to stimulate the blood and give a fresh feeling with the marigold oil and chlorophyllin to help treat the skin. The aduki beans are not coarse so won't cause any discomfort or small tears in the skin. In all I really like this product and sure it will continue to be a staple in my skin care routine for some time.

The ingredients -
Bentonite Gel, Kaolin, Honey, Talc, Ground Aduki Beans, Glycerine, Evening Primrose Oil, Peppermint Oil, African Marigold Oil, Vanilla Absolute, *Limonene, Perfume, Chlorophyllin, Methylparaben

  1. Love the Fiona face :) I might try some of this as I suffer with my skin.

  2. I too am sceptical of using new things, especially things that harden on your face for a while! Glad it didnt do anything nasty! Might try this at some point!!

  3. Well I have to say not everyone looks as cute as you when they do a face mask!

  4. My little butterfly, please put the make-up back on!! i hoped the family connection to the shrek's would never come to light
