A good face mask can do wonders for your skin – so you know I’m trying all the Lush fresh face masks!
My latest trial is of the Oatifix Fresh Face Mask which is supposedly great for dry and sensitive skin as it’s very moisturising and full of nourishing ingredients that will clean and soften your skin.
Oatifix is a fresh face mask so it needs to be kept in the fridge and should be used ASAP. That said, I’ve never followed the expiration dates on these masks and nothing bad has ever happened. I like to go by the smell test, and the mould test. If it smells or looks off, don’t use it.
It has bananas, vanilla, almonds, plenty of oats, and I believe a hint of cinnamon-y goodness which makes it smell just like breakfast. It’s very refreshing and great to use first thing in the morning, I find that it helps reduce my redness and the puffiness around my eyes.
As you can see, it’s a very grainy mask with lots of chunks, you can literally see the oats. This can make it a little difficult to apply as it tends to stay in its clumps and is a little difficult to spread.
It also makes you look a little like you have a super weird skin disease…
It isn’t any better up close.
I do love this mask though, it definitely works and leaves your skin soft and smooth, and smelling great!
