Lush - Oatifix - Face Mask

After being inspired by my friend Fiona's beauty blog I decided that I would try some beauty blogging myself.  Since I use a lot of beauty products it makes sense.  I will probably specialise in nail polish since I always have my nails painted and own an obscene amount of polishes. 

I'm also going to get back into the habit of using a face mask at least once a week.  I used to use one weekly and then I just stopped...I think I got too busy with uni work and my bottle of mask ran out.  However since I have started my new job and I'm working in an air-conditioned environment my skin has dried out something awful.

One of the best face masks in my opinion are those that Lush make - all fresh/natural ingredients - so nothing that is going to be bad for your skin.  Unlike some skin products that are full of things like alcohol which just dry your skin out. I usually use the face masks 'catastrophe cosmetic' or 'cupcake' from Lush but I decided to try one I haven't tried before which is good for dry skin.

The ingredients are:

  • Banana's - which are a rich oily fruit - good for sorting out dry skin.
  • Illipe butter -  to moisturise the skin and leave it supple.
  • Oatmeal,ground almonds and kaolin bind -  act as a very gentle scrub to lift dead skin away and leave the face looking brighter.
  • A soft fragrance based on vanilla absolute finishes off this nourishing mask.

I'm a big fan of banana's and the way they smell so I found this mask simply define but it also leaves your skin full of the moisture that it was robbed of.
