Review of the cruelty-free, clay-based, ginger and honey Brazened Honey facial mask from LUSH


Brazened Honey is a deep cleansing kaolin clay-base facial mask.

Ingredients such as ginger, fennel, cardamom and turmeric stimulate and impart a healthy skin glow (per the maker!). The skin does tingle a bit when you first apply the mask, which may the due to the ginger. The turmeric and cardamom also give this mask its yellow-greenish appearance. [Tip: Do a small skin patch test to make sure you will not have a allergic reaction to any of the ingredients.]

Other ingredients include lime oil and honey, which brighten and moisturize, respectively, and ground almonds, which gently exfoliate the skin. The texture of the ground almonds resembles that of espresso ground coffee, just a bit coarser. [Tip: Keep the mask refrigerated to extend the the 3-week shelf-life to 5 or more weeks.]

How to use
To use, apply generously all over your face and leave on for 15 minutes. Remove the mask by rinsing it off with warm water, and massage (exfoliate) as you do so.

Overall, I really enjoy this mask. I don’t use it often to see any brighting, but I’m very pleased with how it tightens and deep cleans, while still leaving my skin feeling soft and moisturized.

This mask retails for $9.95 US/2.1 oz and it’s available here.
