Ahhh Lush Mask of Magnaminty I have such a love/hate relationship with you! Some days you work, others you don’t…sometimes I see the glow you leave behind, other days I feel like you haven’t done anything at all.
What about you?
Do you love Mask of Magnaminty?
Mask of Magnaminty (not to be confused with milk of magnesia and yes, I’ve made the mistake of calling it that once or twice) is the only “fresh” facial mask that Lush sells online (anything else you’d have to get in store) that doesn’t need to be refrigerated although I do recommend sticking it in the fridge for a cool, crisp feel thought anyway!
This is a deep cleansing facial mask made from clay and fresh peppermint. Yeah, I’m always sold on ANYTHING with mint in it. It’s supposed to yank out debris from pores while exfoliating dry skin and calming redness. So basically it’s a one hit wonder to address many needs.
What does it actually do…
Well it’s kinda that stereotypical green mask you’d see someone wearing in a rom com or in a horror movie. Ya know, getting ready for bed at night, green mask in place, door bell rings, dead of night, pouring rain, a man with a hockey mask and a big knife on the other side of the door, you screaming, green mask dripping off your face as you run around the house with your hair in curlers chased by said dude in hockey mask with big knife…
Or you’re at home, sitting on the couch, pity fess, big quart of Blue Bunny Ice Cream in hand, in front of the TV watching those really bad can’t take your eyes off them train wreck 90210 remake episodes, door bell rings, it’s your crush, but you’re wearing a big giant fluffy robe, lambie slippers, and a green slimy mask on your face, what do you do!?!??!
In all seriousness it really is kinda a stereotype for all masks everywhere. Green? Yeah, very stereotypical.
It’s thick and creamy and it smells like chocolate chip mint ice cream! But don’t eat it. Smear it all over your face, sit around (still perhaps watching those bad 90210 remake episodes) for 30 minutes or so and allow the clay to set and dry. Now rinse! BAM! Glowing skin.
Really depends…I sometimes have crazy cool results with this bad boy. My skin glows after use…it tingles during the wear too and feels all minty, cool fresh! And sometimes…sometimes it doesn’t do much of anything….so I stick to using it for really bad 911 episodes. When my skin is super dull or extra shiny, flaky, etc…I think the key is not to over do it with the mask. For example every two weeks, single treatment, will result in glowing dull-free skin but say once a week or even twice a week and you won’t be as wowed by the results.
As it dries down it begins to tighten considerably now is time for the rinse off. Since it is a tad on the chunky side as you rub it off you’ll be exfoliating your skin a bit with it as well!
Sadly, it only lasts for three or so months before needing to be tossed so I recommend purchasing the smaller jar and using it two or three times a month. Your skin will thank you and you’ll get back that glow you might sorely be lacking. Over use it and you won’t notice the change so much!
P.S. You can use it on your body too!
What sort of results do you see from it?

P.S. I’m pretty sure I have a crush on Byran Johnson. He’s like the bully at school you shouldn’t laugh at but secretly do anyway because he makes such comical snarky ass comments. Loved him in all of Kevin’s movies but really find him even funnier in his candid takes in Comic Book Men (P.S.S. don’t watch the show if you’re a comic book reader it will seriously make you realize what a dork you are! I’ve been confronted by my nerdy personality far to often for comfort when watching it!)
