Multi-masking: Lush Fresh Face Masks (Love Lettuce & BB Seaweed)

Tuesday, September 27, 2016

Pozdravljene.
Danes se bom posvetila naravnim sestavinam v Lushevih maskah, katere so verjetno edine sveže maske, ki jih lahko tudi kupite. Ne vsebujejo konzervansov ter so iz najbolj svežih sestavin, zato jih je potrebno hraniti v hladilniku. Rok uporabe je 4 tedne, vendar se nekatere sestavine običajno pokvarijo kasneje. Sama to opazim po spremembi vonja, teksture ali pa sestavine v tubici dobesedno splesnijo. 
Pred tem sem že omenjala Cupcake svežo masko za mastno kožo, tokrat pa sem preizkusila kombiniranje mask za obraz. Zakaj? Ta trend sem opazila na spletu in se mi je zdel super ravno za moj mešan tip kože. Na T coni je koža precej mastna, zato sem tam uporabila Love Lettuce, za uravnavanje sebuma. Na licih ter ob straneh pa je koža bolj suha. Torej ko je koža zmešana, ne uporabite samo ene maske za obraz, temveč se fokusirajte na kaj posamezen predel na obrazu potrebuje (globinsko čiščenje, pomirjanje, vlaženje...). Maska se na obrazu pusti 10-15 minut, med tem pa se lahko stuširate, usedete v bano ali pa opravite hišna opravila. Zato ni nujno, da bi si morali vzeti čas za razvajanje kože ! Seveda pa sem maski preizkusila tudi posamezno, da Vam ju lahko dodobra opišem.

Hello girls.
I'm sure you've heard of Lush face masks. But did you know they have the fresh ones, which contain only the freshest natural ingredients and no preservatives which works the best and you can see the changes on the skin quicker ! That's why you keep them in the fridge and use them up in 4 weeks. Well I had their masks for longer than that and they didn't get spoilt right away. You just have to make sure it doesn't get mouldy, change a scent or texture, otherwise you throw it away.
Also I wanted to talk about multi-masking. I've heard bloggers talk about it and I wanted to try it out. Multi-masking actually means to use different face masks on the face, so you actually focus on what each area needs (deep cleansing, calming, hydrating...).
So because my T zone is oily, I used Love Lettuce to balance the oils. And then on other areas I used BB Seaweed to calm the redness on my cheeks and such. The mask is supposed to be on the skin for 10-15 minutes and then you wash it off. Meanwhile you can hop into the shower, take a relaxing bath or just do house chores. Your skin needs some pampering once in a while, so you don't need lots of free time available ! Of course I tested masks separately as well, to give you an honest opinion.


Love Lettuce - balansing / balansira


Sestavine:
Agar Agar gel, Kaolin, Med, Fullerjeva zemlja, Glicerin, Mandljevo olje, Mlete mandljeve lupine, Mleti mandlji, Sivkino olje, Klorofil

Ta maska ima nežen vonj po sivki, kar je lahko super za pred spanjem, da te pomiri in malce uspava. Je malce bolj tekoča, verjetno zato ker vsebuje mandljevo olje, vendar se zato zelo enostavno razporedi po koži. Takoj so vidni delci mandljeve lupine, ter ob odstranitvi delujejo kot piling. Če masko spirate s krožnimi gibi, opravi kar učinkovit/intenziven piling, zato morda ni primerna za občutljivo kožo. Po odstranitvi je koža zelo mehka in sijoča. Predvsem pa imam občutek, da je zelo dobro očiščena, vendar brez, da bi jo zategovalo ali izsušilo. Čeprav je namenjena balansiranju, vsebuje mandljevo olje. To kožo navlaži in lahko pusti nasproten učinek, da pore ne proizvajajo veliko sebuma (olj), zaradi navlaženosti kože. Na dolgi rok sicer ne deluje tako, da bi popolnoma odpravila masten sijaj, vendar imam občutek, da vredu balansira olja na moji koži.

"Brighten your complexion with nutrient-rich agar seaweed gel, soothing and moisturising honey and almond oil, and gently exfoliating almond shells. This mask is simply fragranced with French lavender, which has a calming effect on the mind and helps to balance the skin’s sebum production."

List of ingredients:
Agar Agar Gel, Kaolin, Honey, Fullers Earth, Glycerine, Almond Oil, Ground Almond Shells, Ground Almonds, Lavender Oil, Chlorophyllin *Geraniol *Limonene *Linalool Perfume

This mask is lightly scented with lavender, so it is soothing and calming - might be perfect before going to bed. It doesn't have a thick texture so it's really easy to apply on the skin. You can see the almond shells which work as a scrub. If you wash it off with circular motions, it will give you an intensive scrub, so I don't recommend it for sensitive skin. Still, you can wipe it off with water without doing an intensive scrub. After removing it, my skin feels really soft and glowy, however not greasy at all. Almond oil actually helps balance oils on the skin, so think of it that way: if you put oil on oily skin, the pores won't produce as much sebum as there is enough moisture already. I feel like it does do that on my skin, however it probably doesn't work long term.

BB Seaweed - calming / pomirja


Sončne opekline? Razdražena koža? Želite le nežno masko? Tale je za vas! Helen je razvila pomirjujočo, poživljajočo in mineralov polno masko, ki očisti, zmehča in izboljša videz kože. Vsebuje sveže, hranljive morske alge, čistilno kaolinsko glino, antiseptični med, pomirjujočo aloe vero in absolut vrtnice, ki skupaj ustvarjajo čudovito mešanico, ki bo uravnotežila in poživila kožo na vašem obrazu. Namig: fantje, uporabite jo pred britjem!

Sestavine:
prevretek lipovih cvetov in vijolice (Tilia europaea and Viola odorata), kaolin (Kaolin), med (Honey), glicerin (Glycerine), mleti mandlji (Prunus dulcis), nazobčana haluga (Fucus serratus), organski gel aloe vere (Aloe barbadensis), proso (Panicum miliaceum), organsko ekstra deviško olivno olje (Olea europea), betonitni gel (Bentonite Gel), sveži vrtnični cvetovi (Rosa centifolia), absolut vrtnice (Rosa damascena absolute), olje pačulija (Pogostemon cablin oil), rožmarinovo olje (Rosmarinus officinalis), absolut morskih alg (Fucus vesiculosus absolute), *citral (Citral), geraniol (Geraniol), benzil benzoat (Benzyl Benzoate), *limonene (*Limonene), *linalool (*Linalool), parfum (Perfume)

Ta maska pa deluje kot običajna glinena maska, saj ima gosto teksturo ter se hitro posuši, ob čemer malce zategne kožo. Vonj je prijetno nežen ter predvsem naraven: voham vrtnico ter rožmarin. Hkrati pa deluje sproščujoče. V teksturi pa so opazni deli alg. Po uporabi je moja koža zelo čista, mehka in pomirjena. Nimam občutka, da bi bila ekstra navlažena, vendar je koža lepa, sijoča. Preizkusila jo je tudi moja mama, ki je imela malce opečen obraz od sonca ter ji je rdečico na licih takoj pomirilo.

"A calming fresh face mask with fresh seaweed, ground almonds, rose absolute and aloe vera to soothe and soften the skin. We also use rosemary oil for its regenerative qualities, kaolin to remove any excess dirt or oil, and millet flakes to gently exfoliate away dead skin as you scrub it off."


List of ingredients: Lime Tree Flower and Sweet Violet Leaf Decoction, Kaolin, Honey, Glycerine, Ground Almonds ,Toothed Wrack Seaweed, Fair Trade Organic Aloe Vera Gel, Millet Flakes, Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Bentonite Gel, Fresh Rose Petals, Rose Absolute, Patchouli Oil, Rosemary Oil, Seaweed Absolute *Citral *Geraniol *Benzyl Benzoate *Limonene *Linalool Perfume

The initial thoughts, when I tried this mask for the first time is that it works as a normal clay mask. It has a thicker texture (where you can see the seaweed) and dries quite fast which gives you a bit of tightening effect. But it is not just that. The scent is very natural and gentle: I can smell the roses and rosemary. At the same time it is very relaxing. After I was is off, my skin feel nicely clean, soft and mostly calmed down. It's not hydrating, however still very pleasant on the skin. I also gave it to my mom, which had a bit of sunburn and after a mask I could definitely see the difference in her skin. Her red skin was instantly calmed down and look normal as it should.


Cena mask: 10,45€ /45g (na voljo v trgovinah Maribor, Koper ter Ljubljanatudi v spletni  trgovini - tukaj )
Za 5 Lushevih lončkov na navoj (ali tubic za obarvane balzame) jo lahko dobiš zastonj !

Z maskami imam res dobre izkušnje in tudi te se po 4 tednih niso pokvarile. In kot vidite je moja koža po uporabi res sijoča in ima zdrav izgled. Sama imam 1 lonček za 10 uporab.

    1. Ultrabland si verjetno imela :) Meni so njihove maske fajn. Veliko ljudi reče: ja pa sej to si lahko namešam doma. Res je, ampak pol je tolk packarije, pa hitreje lahko splesni. Te formule oz. sestavine so pa določene količinsko in tudi naj bi res delovale :)
