I decided to buy this product because I was looking for a new but effective good face mask. I came across this one Mask of Magnaminty. Reading the description it sounded amazing and it had great reviews. So I got it along with another product. I have used a lot of face mask over the years. Some expensive ones and some cheap ones. In my opinion this one is very fair priced for what it is. The day it was delivered I used it that night. To my surprise you only had to keep it on for 5 to 10 minutes. To me that's awesome. I always put my face mask on with a foundation brush so it's even on my face. After about 5 minutes you can actually feel it start to work and the product will start to dry on your face. After the 10 minutes is up I get in the shower to wash it off with a warm wash cloth. My skin feels so clean and smooth after I use the mask and after a few weeks so 2 mask I saw a huge difference in the size of my pores on my cheeks and nose. That right there alone made me fall in love with this mask. I have no black heads and my skin doesn't get dried out or oily through the week because this mask will absorb all the bad oils and dirt while filling my skin with all the great ingredients this mask consists if. I don't have sensitive skin so I don't know how that would effect that type of skin but I do know this is a face mask I will keep around for a very long time. I would highly recommend this to anyone and will repurchase before it's gone. Thus is one of my must have beauty products.
A newer addition to the Lush lineup, the face masks are each individually designed for a set of specific skin types, issues and problems. My partcular favorite, which I am constantly restocking, is the Mask of Magnanimity. It is actually a rarity amony the face masks in that it addresses a range of issues, from acne to blackheads, and can be used on any type of skin, though dry skin gets the greatest result. Recently, Lush reissued the product with a slightly altered mix die to an issue with synthetic chemicals in the older recipe. This runs contrary to the very core of the company, as Lush has always been devoted to using naturally occurring ingredients without preservatives. This means most products have a use-by date. Always be sure to check and make sure your facial mask is still usable before applying Mask of Magnanimity. There should be a sticker attached to the bottom of the container.
Asfar as face masks go, this one is super easy to use, and extremely soothing. You can use it on your entire face, spot treat your face, or on your body. I have tried all three methods and found the face is best. Using it on your body wastes a ton of product and you just don't have the same kind of invigorating experience as when you are using it on your face.
The Mask of Magnanimity is my spot treatment go-to. If I feel even the slightest hint of a budding pimple, I will be certain to spot treat it that very night. I usually just leave it on as I sleep. A bit does flake off during the night, but it works wonders regardless. It has literally not once ever failed me. The stuff is like magic, I swear.
By far my favorite method, though, is traditional face mask, and this is what I recommend for any new users. The mask is gently exfoliating as you apply it. The ingredients include crushed aduki beans and primrose seeds, giving it that slight texture. It is not as harsh as most other methods. This is a specialty of Lush. Once the mask is smoothed over your entire face, sit back and enjoy a sllight, pleasant tingling sensation of cold warmth from the peppermint oil that is a major component. The scent clarifies and soothes as you breathe. It is truly an experience.
The mask is light, and stays that way throughout the 15 minutes it is designed to be kept on. I STRONGLY urge you to keep a timer and rinse on time. If you leave the mask on too long, it can begin to feel like it burns. Additionally, people with very sensitive skin should be cautious with this one. Try a small section of your face for 5-10 minutes before going gung ho the whole 15. The most active of the ingredients in this magical concoction is kaolin clay, which sucks all the toxins, and much of the oil, out of your pores. This can cause irritation for some. If you know you are prone to acne post-mask treatment, I recommend applying a light moisturizer post mask. For most people, however, a warm rinse, with gently massaging hands is enough. The mask leaves you with the glorious sensation of truly clean, pure, minty, cool, and slightly glowing skin. It looks and feels incredible.
Because the Mask of Magnanimity is so effective, I find it best for the simple deep clean 2-3 times a week at most. I do not want to accidentally overdry my skin. Experiment to find what is best for you.
Overall, the Mask of Magnaminty is an effective, lovely feeling, deeply cleansing mask. It is truly a hidden gem among facial products. I recommend it to just about ever person I know. (My brother steals my tub whenever he gets the chance.) I know you will love it just as much as I do.
You can buy the Mask of Magnaminty online or in store. Pick your method, and get a move on. Bliss awaits.
First of all, the mask is super easy to apply. While it definitely has some chunks that are larger than what you might see in a typical face mask, they didn’t cause a problem.
The second thing I liked about this mask is that it mattified my skin. My face is constantly oily, and this mask seemed to remove that oil for about a day before it started to get bad again.
The third thing I liked about this mask is that it gets rid of large whiteheads. If you want to use this mask to clear a whitehead, leave it on for an hour or two INSTEAD of the recommended 5-10 minutes. I found that the mask was able to dry out those bigger pimples almost instantly.
Buy this mask! Your skin will thank you :)
This is hands down the best face mask I have ever tried! I have been struggling with acne for years (even after two sessions of Accutane/isothretinoin) and I honestly wish I had discovered this mask sooner. I love the concept behind Lush, but unfortunately I have extremely acne prone skin, which is why I avoid all products with almond oil or coconut oil, two ingredients that are commonly used in Lush products. Mask of Magnaminty does not contain either so I decided to give this a go and I am so happy I did! This mask soothes my breakouts, hydrates my skin, cleans my pores and makes my skin look so glowy! And it smells so nice! I love that the main ingredient is honey, which is antibacterial, and that it contains kaolin and bentonite, which are known for their purifying properties. I also like that no artificial preservatives whatsoever were added. This mask has earned its place in my skin care routine and it never ceases to amaze me... I reach for it a few times a week, leave it on for about ten minutes and it always manages to decrease my breakouts. After trying a small pot, I quickly moved on to buying a full size pot and I will most certainly repurchase. Don't let the price keep you from trying this mask, you actually get quite a lot of product, especially if you buy the full size pot.
