Lush The Sacred Truth Fresh Face Mask Review

I love a good face mask, and Lush do some of the best around - so of course, I've made it my mission to work my way through the range. Brazened Honey currently holds the favourites position - could The Sacred Truth knock it from that hallowed spot?

Lush describe this as a 'serious, complex mask' and from that I deduce two things. Firstly, that this is aimed at a slightly more mature audience than many of Lush's offerings - though in fairness, the 'anti-ageing' tag is also a clue! And secondly, that it targets a number of skin complaints in one.

So we have ingredients like evening primrose oil, shea butter, coconut oil and honey, which should make for a really nourishing product. There are also clays to draw out impurities, and papaya for some light exfoliating action. Ginseng, green tea and wheatgrass are included for their antioxidant properties. This all sounds great for my mature, dehydrated, oily and blemish prone skin. I'm sobbing as I type out that sentence...

The mask itself is quite thick - though not as thick as Brazened Honey - and an avocado green. I'm not mad on the scent (I think it's the wheatgrass), but when I wash off the product, my face feels incredibly soft.  I can see a difference in my complexion after the first use. 

Sadly I make a rookie mistake with this product. The fresh face masks are preservative-free and should be stored in the fridge. I remember the fridge bit, but forget the expiry date. I get two uses from it before I forget all about it, just to discover it weeks after the best-before date. 

LUSH face masks cost from €6.90 for 75g each. This is one I will definitely revisit, but after I've worked my way through a few more in the range. Any tips for what I should try out next?
