As the name suggests, this Fresh Face Mask is very much Rose based. Roses aren’t just beautiful flowers, the oil that the petals produce has numerous benefits for the skin.
Rosy Cheeks is quite a simple face mask. A blend of Rose, Calamine and Kaolin are basically the only ingredients meaning this mask is perfect for sensitive skins.
Kaolin, or China clay, is a naturally occurring porous soft clay rich in the mineral, kaolinite. Its ability to absorb moisture into itself means it is an excellent ingredient to support product formulas that are self-preserving, by hiding water within itself away from bacteria, yeasts or molds. It also absorbs the impurities from the skin making it an effective cleanser.
Calamine powder is mainly zinc oxide, a white powder, with a dash of iron oxide, combining to produce a pretty, light pink powder. It is a very gentle ingredient on the skin and has great cleansing and PH balancing qualities. However, it’s main benefit is that it’s incredibly (and gently) soothing and calming for the skin.
The main feature is of course the Rose. Rosy Cheeks contains Turkish rose in three forms. An oil, an infusion and in a clay. Roses are the Queen of Soothing and this is why this particular mask is perfect for anyone suffering with any irritation, any redness, sunburn or any sort of inflammation.
The scent of rose is used by aromatherapists to lift the mood and restore balance, Rosy Cheeks is gorgeously scented with a strong and almost powdery rose scent.
Because of it’s really smooth clay-like texture it’s easily applied to the face and immediately starts the soothing action, especially when it’s taken directly from the fridge where it’s supposed to be stored. A great thing about Rosy Cheeks is that unlike most of Lush’s other masks, it doesn’t dry out that much or become flaky at all.
I really love this mask, it makes my skin feel so good after and is beautifully mattefying once washed off. It’s great for use in the summer to help with sunburn or when you’re feeling flushed.
