Keep in mind that these are the products that work best for my skin and everyone should figure out what works for them. I have combination skin and I break out mostly on my forehead and cheek bones. My forehead breakouts are usually credited to having bangs--but the ones on my cheek bones usually come from the natural hormone changes a woman goes through every month. I normally do not have a severe acne problem--and I also do not have dry skin on my face, so those of you who are looking to this for solutions to those kinds of problems, please take what I say with a grain of salt. =)
For those of you who don't know, I am a huge Lushie! I pretty much consistently use Lush products for everything, and for that reason I have tried a bulk of their masks.
Lush Brazened Honey: This wonderful mask is perfect for brightening your skin and is very gentle. I feel that my face can handle using it twice a week (vs. the Healing Clay which should probably only be used once a week--and I have oily skin so probably even less often for someone who has dry skin) and it smells wonderful. There are also crushed almonds in the mask that provides a fantastic exfoliating effect when you wash it off. Absolutely perfect if you want to get rid of some dead skin or brighten dark spots from previous acne-prone areas.
Sana Hadanomy Deep Moisturizing Mask with Collagen: This is probably the worst mask I have ever tried--but it could be because my skin really doesn't need moisturising... I wanted to try out one of the paper masks, and this one is very popular. I found it all over the place when I visited family in Chicago last year, so I took the plunge and picked up a box. They come in a set of four, and is loaded with product. It's dripping with the lotion/moisturiser that they advertise, so I didn't feel like I was being ripped off. I broke out so badly after using it, and no matter how much I tried to wash my face with water after using it, I could not get rid of the oily feeling it gave my skin. (The directions say to just remove the mask and let the extra product soak into your skin, but even after half an hour I felt like I had excess oil.) Looking back on it is, it is a moisturising mask, and I definitely don't have dry skin, so it was just a bad idea on my part. Since then I've been super wary of buying any other Asian masks (I have a mask I purchased from a Korean store just lying around that I haven't used yet because I don't want another repeat of this instance), and am probably going to stick to the sloppier kind you have to spoon out of a tub vs. the cloth masks.
Masks I have yet to try:
My Beauty Diary Mask -- Aloe: This is the mask I mentioned picking up from a Korean place earlier. It has good reviews on Amazon and I feel bad just letting the box fester around, so I'm probably going to try it when I'm back in my own apartment in August.
