Oatifix was invented by a group of Lush store managers who took part in a ‘Ready Steady Create’ weekend, they wanted to create a face mask that was gently exfoliating and suitable for dry and sensitive skin.
Oats are a fantastic thing. Not only a nutritious food source, they’ve also been used for thousands of years to soothe skin and relieve itching and inflammation. Oats contain polysaccharides (carbohydrates) which become gelatinous when mixed with water and leaves a protective film on the skin.
The Oatmeal, Ground Almonds and Kaolin work together for a gently exfoliating base which helps remove dead skin as you take it off.
Whilst on the skin, you can already feel the hydrating properties get to work, Oatifix feels really luxurious the whole time it sits on the skin due to the buttery rich texture. Although Lush say to keep it on for around 10 to 15 minutes, I definitely think the longer you can leave this particular mask on, the better it gets!
The Fresh Banana in this product is what gives it it’s richness, bananas are full of vitamins and minerals and are perfect for softening the skin. Also adding to the moisturising qualities we have Illipe Butter, which is often regarded as the richest of butters.
The addition of Vanilla Absolute, Sandalwood Oil and Benzoin Resinoid contribute to the lovely scent of this face mask, it’s smells like honey almond breakfast porridge, tempting enough to eat!
Oatifix leaves you feeling superbly hydrated and soft, it’s perfect for those with dry skin, or those who simply want to boost their skin’s natural hydration! It also really works on dry patches around the body, especially around the elbows and the knees, or if your hands are in need of some moisture, use it as a hand mask!
