Lets just get this out of the way first: yes, Lush’s Brazened Honey mask looks like a wholegrain mustard dip. No, you can’t eat it. Don’t even try, buster.
Rather than being something to slather on a cracker, this mask is a refreshing cocktail of warming herbs like rosemary, sage, coriander and parsley; fresh ingredients like lime, fennel and honey, and finished with ginger and almonds. Designed for all skin types that need a bit of a kickstart, it’s half mask, half exfoliant, and all delicious.
Brazened Honey is laughably easy to use: get it out of the fridge (you gotta keep your Lush fresh masks in the fridge, trust me – I accidentally left one in my bathroom for a week and it was not pretty), paint your pretty face in greenish yellowish masky goodness, and wait ten or fifteen minutes for it to set. To remove it just wet your hands and gently massage it away. The coarsely ground almond gives a very gentle exfoliation without being scratchy, leaving me with a buffed visage worthy of a skincare commercial.
Best for: all skin types, fans of Lush’s Angels on Bare Skin, ingredient queens.
