Let me tell you a story…..hopefully you like these long stories I get into. Ok, so I’m a big Lush skin care fan but lately I’ve been cheating with Korean brand, the Skin Food. This stuff is really great for my skin and I’ve been using it’s super power human strength to make my skin glow.
One thing I’ve never been too big a fan with when it comes to Lush is their face masks. I love some of the interesting promises that the masks make but I’ve never actually experienced the benefits for myself after using them. They are nice to have items but I’ve never had the pleasure of seeing incredible, awe aspiring results from ’em!
I discovered The Skin Food Face Masks and I swear I can’t live without this good stuff! Now we’re talking results!
I’ve pitted The Skin Food Wash Off Masks against Lush Face Masks in a Beauty Battle. It’s easy enough to see who’ll win this battle but take the jump to find out for yourself!
First off let me rave the great benefits of a Skin Food Benefit versus Lush Masks.
Here’s the deal.
- Skin Food Mask Pros:
Good from anywhere to 3-4 months or more.
No need to refrigerate
Big 100g size!
- Lush Face Mask Cons:
Needs to be put in the fridge
Only good for 7-12 days or less depending on which mask you purchase
Smaller size at 75g.
Expensive (especially since you’ll toss it out way before you’ve used it all)
I’ve always found it utterly irritating that I never use a Lush mask completely before having to toss it out because it goes bad on me. Lush suggests using a mask one to two times a week. This means you really need to get to work using the mask quickly before it expires in as little as two weeks. You have to pack on alot of the mask to use it all up plus I find some of the masks are a little too harsh to use that often so again they get tossed partially full before I use them all completely. I also find that if I place them in the fridge I sometimes forget to use them. I have a tiny fridge for Lush in my bathroom however I’ve been known to stick a mask in their and completely forget about it. I wish I could just shove it on my skincare shelf as I’m more likely to remember to use it.
The Skin Food Masks, so much better! They don’t need to be tucked in your fridge plus they are good for 3 months or longer! And best of all? You see the results where as Lush I’ve never had the pleasure.
In regards to variety both Lush and Skin Food do come up lacking with around 7 to 8 masks each (perhaps a bit more I haven’t officially counted). Each mask addresses various issues so it’s not as if you’ll be missing out on anything because they are lacking in a formula, it’s simply that the lines are limited to only a few masks and not a HUGE array of ’em.
Of course, Lush is easier to come by considering that the Skin Food is sold exclusively within Asia however in my opinion it’s worth the extra work of tracking them down.
Honestly, it’s a bad idea to even place a Lush Skin Mask in the fighting ring with Skin Food because Skin Food will knock it out within the first round.
Skin Food Wash Off Masks win this Beauty Battle hands down. No fists needed, a cool puff of air can knock Lush out of this ring.
Stay tuned for some reviews on Skin Food Masks coming at you soon.
Anyone try Skin Food Masks before?
How about Lush ones?
Battle ’em up if you tried both, which one wins?
