Lush is known for their bath bombs and various natural products. I have very acne prone skin, and so I was constantly recommended the Mask of Manaminty. With 4.5 star reviews on the Lush website, it is known for being able to help acne, some people even claiming it “cleared their skin in one night”. That was not the case for me. The mint green mask made my skin dry and while I figured that there could have been a bit more drying, in order to help with acne, this brought out the dryness side of my combination skin. I decided to give it the benefit of the doubt and try it a few times before judging it too harshly. However, after trying it out for a few weeks, I have come to realize that this just is not the mask for me and I would not recommend it to anyone whose skin gets dry. It did not do a very good job of helping my skin feel better or helping with my acne. I would like to say that lush has an amazing variety of other products, this one just did not work out for me. I could see it potentially working out for someone with maybe fully oily skin, just to try it, but not combination skin because it will dry you out. I personally use a few different masks which I would fully recommend and I will be doing another blog post about that soon!
