The Mask of Magnaminty by Lush

I have never tried a Lush face mask before despite wanting to for years! I have no idea why it took me so long but nevertheless, here we are with my first Lush mask review.

I chose this one because it is one of their best sellers and probably one of the most talked about in the beauty world, so I thought it was a safe bet. The texture is really thick like a clay or mud mask, and then it has chunks of ground up beans for an added exfoliation property. Since it has mint in it, it obviously feels super cooling and tingly when you put it on which I always love in skin products. This mask uses Kaolin clay however it doesn’t completely dry on the face like other clay masks, it dries to semi-dried sticky consistency.


This is the description of the product on the Lush Canada website:

“This tingly, minty face and body mask was formulated to be intensely cleansing but never harsh or abrasive. Kaolin clay and peppermint oil rid your pores of debris, giving you a delightfully tingly clean sensation. We add loads of ground aduki beans to exfoliate flaky or dry skin, vanilla absolute to calm redness and honey to soothe and moisturize.”

So from this it claims to unclog pores, exfoliate, relieve redness and moisturize. I’ve noticed that it definitely helps unclog pores because of the physical exfoliation that I get when I wash it off. I went for a facial the other day and my lady said that the best thing I can do for my skin is to use physical exfoliators along with chemical exfoliators since I had so many clogged pores. I think this has definitely been helping with that. I don’t have too many issues with redness so I can’t really speak to that, and it definitely feels moisturizing as my skin doesn’t feel tight after I rinse it off like it does with some other masks.

What I love about Lush is that all the ingredients are natural and the packaging is super eco-friendly, but because it’s all so fresh the product expires a little quicker than other brands that aren’t all natural.

I’m excited to try more Lush skincare in the future, I’d love to hear your recommendations in the comments!

That’s it for now,



How to Have The Most Relaxing Bath

It’s the winter time in Canada… it’s freezing all the time. I’m not the type of person who just warms up as soon as they get inside, the cold lingers with’s not a fun time. So to relieve this, I pretty much go in the bath like once a day, if not at least a few times a week. I’ve mastered the process, and so I thought I would share my knowledge with my readers.

Step 1. Get all your props ready. I’m talking bath bombs, bubble bath, bath salts, body scrubs etc. My favourite place to buy all that stuff is Lush Cosmetics. I’ve tried bath bombs from all over the place and I can honestly say nothing compares to lush. Their bombs make the water the most opaque with whatever colour it is, and they produce the most bubbles, even more so than liquid bubble bath. It can get pretty pricey especially with how much I bathe, but I honestly think it’s worth it.

Step 2. Tell your family (if you live at home) that you’re going in the bath and don’t want to be bothered. It is truly the most annoying thing to have to scream across the house when you’re in the bath trying to relax.

Step 3. Find some sort of entertainment. Some people are simple and just like relaxing music and to sit with their thoughts, I personally can’t stand my thoughts so I distract myself with TV. I bring my Macbook into the bathroom and rest it on a stool and watch Netflix. My pick of choice currently is Ozark season 2. It’s intense, not necessarily relaxing but man do I love that show.

I just soak until I look like a grandma and then voila!
