Lush Oatfix Fresh Face Mask 

Hi All,

Some of the most satisfying things w have are things which we get for free. Same’s the case with me. The minute I accumulated 5 empty Lush tubs, I practically sprinted into the Lush store to get my free fresh face mask. There were so many to choose from like the Mask of magnanimity and what not..but I chose the Oatifix mask simply coz the SA explained it was one of the best masks for my dry as dust sensitive skin this winter.

Product Claim

Use Oatifix to clean and soften dry and sensitive skin. It was invented at our Ready Steady Create weekend by a group of enterprising Lush shop managers. You will be delighted to hear that a blend of fine oatmeal, fresh bananas, ground almonds and vanilla smells as tempting as a very posh breakfast, and even more delighted when you try it. Oats are a wonderful thing, they calm your skin and help to reduce cholesterol (when you eat them, anyway). Ground almonds give you an exfoliating scrub, bananas are a lovely, nutritious skin softner and illipe butter reduces redness. Get the Oatifix you need.

About Lush Oatifix Fresh Face Mask:

  • Packaging – This comes in a tub like all other fresh face masks. I usually buy the100gms dabba simply because these masks stay fresh and usable for 2 weeks and its hard to finish the entire 100gms as it is, let alone 200gms…
  • Quantity & Price: 100gms for 450, 200gms for 1100
  • Color & Texture – The face mask is a light brown color…just like normal oat do.. It quite grainy in texture since it contains almonds which really help n exfoliating the skin. The grains are not abrasive though..they are quit sot infact..when I rub it on my face with water , it actually disintegrates into a cream texture which is just amazing.

  • Fragrance – It actually smells strongly of almonds and I I’m not too fond of the smell. It feels like I’m sniffing honeyed almonds soaked in milk for a day…Not that I’ve done this mind you..but you know us gals…overrun with a wild imagination. I would suggest however that you smell this before you get it…All I can say is…it’s an acquired scent 😉

 

My Verdict:

I have a 50-50 view on this one. I spread it out on my face after cleansing and keep it on for 20mins or so. Now I store this in the fridge (as recommended) so it feels a bit tough to spread. Sp I usually keep it out 5-10mins before using it. I need a very tiny bit…like about a teaspoon worth of product to spread over my entire face and neck area. It actually melts a bit on the face an moisturizes as well. After 20 mins, I wash it off. When washing, I first wet my palms and move them in circular motions over my face to exfoliate. The almond grains actually melt in while I do this and moisturize as I exfoliate. I then rinse off and Voila!! I have nice moisturized skin! I don’t need to use a moisturizer for an hour atleast J

 

But on the other side..it did nothing else..I’m sure I sound really stuck up but I did expect some brightening atleast. I am extremely satisfied with the mask but there no ‘extra’ I can look forward to. So it’s just a normal daily kinda FM…but no miracle creation, if u know what I mean..

  6. mere pass sirf do 3 dibbi hai 😛 maine toh try nahi kiya kabhi.yea wala.but mom liked dis during winters for d mosturizing effect 🙂

  7. I make my own homemade oat mask and love it..just take oats..add a spoon of honey and a tsp of lemon juice 🙂 i have even tried to wash my face with oats and i really love how it made my skin soft and supple 🙂
    this one looks fab too but a bit expensive na 😛

    • Haan kya? Is there a substitute I can use for lemon juice? Sometimes when I use it it starts itching like crazy..

      Thanx for the tip pari..this I super useful 🙂

      • No problem Tulips and Zara 🙂
        Zara..try adding just one drop of lemon essential oil..that too helps 🙂 or add a pinch of turmeric powder 🙂 hope this helps!

        • hey thats cool! i have the lemon wala esential oil..ill try tht! 🙂 Thankies! ur such a sweetheart..

          Hey btw Pari..i had a request…u do alot of pastry and cake making na? can u do some posts on desserts which can be made in a microwave? i luv mking desserts but dont have an oven 🙁

        • this also takes care of moisturization..you dont need to apply a separate moisturizer unless you have extreme dry skin 🙂 for my combi skin it works absolutely fine and no dry patches which i usually get by using any face wash! do try out and let me know your how it worked out for u.
          You can even use only oats to wash your face..below is the technique 🙂 hope this helps!
          Just take a spoon of oat in your palm and add 2 tsp of water and mix well until white liquid comes of oats..donot throw away this liquid but use it to wet your face and now start scrubbing your face with oats mixture just like you face your wash..i do it for couple of minutes..wash your face with cold water and get gorgeous supple skin!

      • :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: u comin kya??? I want to go to the new mall in KP we are probably going to have our first mac store there apart from tat chotu pop up store :tap-dance: :tap-dance: :tap-dance: me so so excited..wahan clinique and forest essential bhi hai :-))

  8. Looks like a tub of mashed bananas :laugh: What happened to their black label Z? This white label looks so unprofessional. When u pay so much for a product u expect the packaging to look good… atleast i do 😀

    • arre this is a fresh face mask na….they dont have the sticker coz its packaged right in front of u..not pre-packaged like the other cleansers n all…thats y…othrwise the tub n all is the same 🙂
