BB Seaweed fresh face mask by LUSH

BB Seaweed Face Face Mask By LUSH

Hi guys!
Oooooo I am back reviewing one my my favourite products ever, a LUSH face mask woo!!!
Okay, so my Momma bought me this for Christmas, but the sales lady didn't tell her it had to be used within a certain time, so she let me have it early, much to my excitement! (first punch-scorrrreeee).
I am obsessed with LUSH face masks, they are amazing, from the smell, the quality and the price, I really cant fault them!
LUSH describes this mask as:
A mask made with men in mind, but without excluding women.
For softening, cooling and reducing redness-Great for anyone with sensitive skin
Honey, seaweed and aloe vera to soften and soothe. Olive oil to moisturise.  Fresh rose petals and rose absolute to reduce redness. Rosemary oil to regenerate the skin. All of this is held together with kaolin, ground almonds and millet flakes – so when you wash this off you are also gently exfoliating and removing dead skin
At the moment, I am suffering with my skin from eczema and dryness, so this ticked every box perfectly when reading about it!

Now BB Seaweed isn't a face mask that would usually grab my attention. I tend to go for the 'pretty' masks or the ones that smell the nicest! However as it was a gift, I was more intrigued to try this than excited!

The masks texture looks basically like sl'op' (no other word to describe it gals!) with bits of seaweed in it. There is no way of making this mask sound pretty haha. I usually have to apply Lush face masks quite thick as they are stored in the fridge they go quite tough, but this was perfect! I scooped a good amount out and smothered it without any trouble all over my face. The mask felt a lot more 'sloppy/gunky' to the other masks I have previously tried and i preferred it this way! When on my skin, that is when I really took in the Scent of the mask. It has a real fresh smell to it and after a while you can really smell the honey and rose in it! Whilst waiting for the mask to dry (I left it on for 15 minutes) I feel stress free and just so so fresh!
The mask dries but doesn't dry in a way where your face goes stiff, again a point from me!
I washed the mask off with warm water and a flannel, patting dry with a soft towel.
After applying
After 15 minutes

Afterwards my skin felt literally as soft as a baby's bum. It was gorgeous to touch and my skin had a bit of a glow to it, kind of dewy in fact!
For anyone who needs a de-stress/has sensitive skin/is male, I would really recommend this too you! However if you are squeamish about gunk and seaweed, I advise you to go for a more 'pretty' mask which you can find here.
Have you tried this mask before? I'd love to know how you found it!RRP: £5.95/75g
