After a day of blogging adventures the other week, I stopped via Lush and picked up one of my staple skin care items - BB Seaweed fresh face mask. On my way home, I thought to myself, I love this mask so much I need to tell everyone about it.
I have been using BB Seaweed for about two years now. I have tried some of the other Lush fresh face masks - Cupcake, Catastrophe Cosmetic, Oatifix, The Sacred Truth... but BB Seaweed surpassed them all performance-wise on my skin. Cupcake is also fantastic and has seen me through some serious problem skin moments, so I shall give credit where credit is due there. But BB Seaweed trumps them all (for me!).
The product description on the label states:
Relaxing and reviving fragrant, mineral-rich mask to cleanse, soften and beautify all skins. This blend, inspired by the sea contains fresh, nutritious seaweed and seaweed absolute. Cleansing kaolin, antiseptic honey, calming aloe vera and rose absolute make this a great mask for everyone.
BB Seaweed does it for me, as it completely calms my skin during rosacea flares - it completely knocks out all the redness, cools and calms my skin, and makes it feel balanced again.
The kaolin in BB Seaweed is enough for a gentle cleanse only, and therefore does not leave my skin feeling tight and dehydrated, a problem I find with more hardcore clay based masks.
The aloe, rose, and seaweed leaves my skin feeling nurtured and nourished.
My skin is left feeling soft, calm, and looking more even toned.
I use BB Seaweed on an as-needed basis. When my rosacea is playing up, I try to relax with BB Seaweed on my skin to calm it down. I also like to use BB Seaweed before a night out, to calm and soothe my skin so it looks its best.
BB Seaweed is suitable for all skin types, however with that being said, it is important to note that this mask does contain seaweed and essential oil extracts. Some people are highly intolerant to these ingredients, so please proceed with caution, and always do a patch test if unsure.
A single 75 gram pot provides
on average four to five uses. Lush fresh face masks typically last
about three weeks in the fridge, and are clearly labelled with a date of
manufacture, and use by date.
BB Seaweed retails for $15.95 in Australia, $6.95 in the US, and £5.95 in the UK for 75 grams. As Lush fresh face masks are biofresh, refrigerated, and preservative free, you must buy them in store. Lush also have an incredible recycling scheme - the return of five black plastic pots will earn you a free fresh face mask!
So if you are looking for a mask that is soothing, reviving, and gives the skin a bit of a boost, definitely take a look at BB Seaweed.
I have tried many face masks over the past twenty years since I first got into skin care, and BB Seaweed is without a doubt one of the best masks I have ever used. This mask will be a staple item in my skin care rotation for many years to come!
