The name of this Fresh Face Mask comes from when BBC presenters Anna Ryder Richardson and Charlie Dimmock came to the Lush factory to create a new product, and BB Seaweed was born.
BB Seaweed is a great mask for everyone as it has a multitude of benefits for all types of skin and is the perfect all rounder.
Don’t be put off by the colour or consistency, it’s grey, feels like wet clay and features little chunks of rose petals and seaweed in it but believe me it’s truly wonderful.
The first ingredient is Lime Tree Flower and Sweet Violet Leaf Decoction, these plants are mucilaginous, which makes them soothing when applied topically. BB Seaweed contains lots of other soothing ingredients such as Rosemary Oil, toning Rose Absolute, revitalising, mineral rich Toothed Wrack Seaweed and Seaweed Absolute and Aloe Vera Gel, all helping to calm down any redness or inflammation.
Cleansing clay based Kaolin works with antiseptic Honey to deeply cleanse the face, drawing out any impurities. It also contains mild exfoliants in the form of both Ground Almonds and Millet Flakes, helping to gently buff away dead skin cells.
Honey also helps to moisturise and protect the skin along with Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
For those looking for a good mask to tone and tighten then this might be a good one to go for. Rosemary, Patchouli, Violet Leaf and Rose are all astringent, helping the pores to contract.
Whenever I use BB Seaweed my face feels remarkably softer, it’s my go to when simply, I just want my skin to feel extra nice. It isn’t drying whatsoever, nor does it add to any excess oils, in fact Bentone Gel and Rose should help to balance out any excess sebum issues. Perfect for those with ‘combination’ skin.
On the face, it is instantly soothing, especially when it’s taken straight from the fridge which is where it needs to be kept due to the completely fresh ingredients. It’s not particularly scented but it gets a natural scent from the earthy and herbal components.
I could go on and on talking about the benefits of this wonderful mask but you should definitely find out for yourself over on the Lush UK website here.
