LUSH needs no introduction, I Believe..! 


Deep cleansing, minty face and back pack. Do you ever feel so grubby you think you'll never get clean again? After an overnight flight, a marathon in a rabbit suit or a walk along the Marylebone Road during rush hour, do you feel a deep need to be scrubbed clean? Here's a cleansing mask to do exactly that, with china clay and bentonite gel to suck the dirt out of your pores, ground aduki beans and evening primrose seeds to exfoliate away your mucky, surface skin cells and loads of peppermint oil to make you feel so clean, fresh and minty that you'll forget you were ever grubby.

PRICE- INR 440 for 125 gms & 900 for 315 gms

I couldn't find the complete list of Ingredients on the official Lush Website, So here s what the package reads

The Mask comes in a wide mouthed, round, black colored, sturdy, plastic jar like most Lush products. ( and if you take back 5 such empty jars to Lush , they give you a fresh face mask free :D )


 I picked up this Magnaminty mask in August, shopping with Jinal, from Mumbai's Lush Store @ phoenix mills mall. I have to tell you that they have the most inimical & inhospitable  SAs there . So, Jinal and I went around the store checking products ourselves and on random I picked up this mask & Jinal picked Love lettuce , since we badly wanted to buy something from there
 Coming to the mask, true to its name, its an overdose of mint and my face feels super cooled off when I have this on. While the lush website suggests this is a cleanser, but I use it like a normal mask. I scoop out some quantity (the amount I have shown in the swatch picture), let it stay on my face for about 5 minutes till it dries. 
It leaves my face clean and completely cooled off like I mentioned. It also has these small scrub particles, so I prefer to scrub/massage it lightly and not just remove it off with water. I notice some reduction in appearance of pores around my nose & cheeks along with a slight glow.
This mask/cleanser would be an excellent product for hot summers, but probably not for this time of the year when Winters are just about to arrive.
I have slight oily, sensitive skin and this suits me well. Dry skinned beauties will have to moisturize well after using it though. 
Well, its a good ,cooling mask basically & I like it a lot but not something that can deal with your skin issues like acne etc. At the moment I am going to finish this jar soon as I was directed that it should be used up within 6 months. I will get a refill of this only after May in summers.
Have you used Mask on Magnminty by Lush ? Let me know your thoughts about it .
