If you're a big fan of Lush Cosmetics, then this is definitely for you! If you don't know much about Lush Cosmetics here's a little crash course. It's a cosmetics company that handmakes all natural, vegan products for skin, hair and hair. On every single product, you'll be able to read every single ingredient AND understand it, you'll see who made the product (also comes with a little cartoon picture of the person), and you'll also see when it was made. It goes without saying that this is one of the best cosmetics companies out there.
But of course, it IS a little pricey as you can imagine. Sure, their stuff smells amazing and there's no better feeling than walking out of a Lush store with some loot, but that's not always possible!
So, instead of buying it, why not make our own? Today we'll show you how to make your own Lush Cosmetic Warrior Face Mask. It's easy, the ingredients are not hard to find, and best of all – SO.MUCH.CHEAPER. So let's get started!
How to Make Your Own Lush Cosmetic Warrior Face Mask
First, let's look at the original ingredients in the Lush Cosmetic Warrior Face Mask:
Kaolin, Fresh Green Grapes (Vitis vinifera), Fresh Free Range Eggs, Honey, Cornflour (Zea mays), Glycerin, Fresh Garlic (Allium sativum), Tea Tree Oil (Melaleuca alternifolia), Perfume.
As you can see, it's all natural stuff that you can actually pronounce and that you've heard of before.
This fresh face mask will leave your skin feeling and looking fresher than ever! Great for oily and acne prone skin, as well as sensitive and combination skin, this Lush face mask is truly one for the books!
Ingredients You'll Need:
This homemade recipe will yield about 4-5 uses.
- 10-12 grapes
- 3 tsps Multani Mitti or Fuller's Earth. Since kaolin clay is not easily available, Fuller's Earth does the exact same thing.
- 2 cloves of garlic
- 1 whole egg
- 1 tsp glycerin
- 2 tsps cornflour
- 1 tsp honey
As you can see, you might already have most of the ingredients in your home, except of course for the clay and the glycerin. In any case, you should be able to easily find both of these (especially glycerin), at a health food store, drug store, or of course, the easiest option: online. You can find Fuller's Earth Clay on Amazon and glycerin on Amazon as well. Ok so let's get to it and make this mask!
In a bowl, add the grapes and garlic. Use a hand blender to mash them up. Add the glycerin and blend again. Add the rest of the ingredients to the bowl and blend well again. You can always add a drop or two of essential oil such as tea tree oil, lavender, or mint. The choice is up to you!
Tea tree oil is great for those with acne prone and oily skin.
Lavender essential oil is great for those with sensitive skin as it calms redness and irritation.
Mint essential oil is great for combination skin and will also leave skin glowing!
Apply the mask directly onto your face and neck and let dry for about 10-15 minutes. Rinse off with lukewarm water and pat dry. Follow up with a moisturizer. You'll want to use this mask once a week only. You can make a fresh batch every time, or do like I did and make enough for a few uses. Just make sure to store the mixture in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
Why This Mask Is Good For You:
This is a miracle mask, especially for acne-prone and oily skin. Its got great detoxifying benefits, getting rid of all the gunk and toxins that reside in your skin.
The eggs act as a tightening and softening agent, while the garlic fights acne. Eggs naturally tighten the skin, which is a great ingredient for those with fine lines and crows feet.
The honey, while soothing irritated or sensitive skin, also removes bacteria. It's a natural antiseptic and anti-fungal ingredient which prevents breakouts from forming.
The clay is an all-around beauty must have as it makes your skin amazingly radiant. And of course grapes are known to contain the anti-ageing reservatrol which reduce fine lines and wrinkles and prevents them from happening.
