The Review | Mask of Magnaminty

I feel like I'm a little bit obsessed with Lush lately. I cannot get enough of them and I keep finding myself creeping onto their website to have a look, and then quickly shutting it down as I could easily spend hundreds in there. This purchase was definitely a necessity for me though (so I say with all of them). I can't actually pronounce this but here we go.

Mask of Magnaminty is a mask made specifically to try and combat spotty skin, it's also one you can use for either face or back. I purchased this with my back in mind. Back-acne (or back-ne) is a real pain in the arse, if you excuse my french. I hate it and have never really found anything that gets rid of it. So I picked this up to see what it could do.

It has mineral rich kaolin to nurish, honey for its anti bacterial properties and peppermint oil to stimulate the blood cells to look refreshed and nourished. I use this before I go in the shower, I slather it on my back (where I can reach), then wait for 10 minutes before I pop in the shower, then rinse off. 

I found the first couple of times you use this it really doesn't make a difference, not one I saw anyway. My skin looked cleaner and fresher yes, but there wasn't any difference in terms of spots. It was about the fourth go that I saw more of a difference and my back started to look a bit clearer. I use this a couple of times a week to get this. It's not life changing I have to say - in face I am a tad disappointed and it's not really done what I bought it to do. All in all it's a nice mask, but for me it's not quite doing the job. Also, the scent is incredibly strong - if you're not a mint fan then you won't like the scent. I'm not a huge fan if I'm honest.

So basically, it does clear the skin a touch and it does clean your face. But if you're looking for that miracle cure for back-ne then you may want to look elsewhere. I got the 125g pot so I could try it for £5.25 or you can get the larger 315g pot for £9.25, you can get both here from the Lush website or from your local Lush store.

What masks from Lush would you recommend? Do you know of a back-ne cure?
