Brazened Honey is a detoxifying mask to use when you are thoroughly ashamed of what you’ve done to your skin. Let’s face it, if it has come to this, you are probably ashamed of what you’ve done to your whole body, it’s just that your face is the place where it shows most. Brazened Honey is made with seven Ayurvedic herbs to deep cleanse your skin and fresh chlorophyll to help repair the damage you’ve done. Honey soothes and calms troubled skin and we also add a detoxifying infusion of sage, juniper and rosemary plus a squirt of organic lime juice. Parsley, ginger, coriander and cardamon help boost your circulation and restore some life to your face. Just because we fix your face it doesn’t mean you can forget to take care of your body. You mustn’t start relying on Brazened Honey to bail you out!
(ingredients and description from LUSH)

LUSH Brazened Honey Fresh Face Mask is a mask designed to exfoliate, detoxify, stimulate and nourish all skin types and is made with natural ingredients. The mask is bright yellow in color and has a strong sweet smell. I actually find the scent to be quite pleasant. Since this mask is made with fresh perishable ingredients without preservatives, it has a shelf life of about 3 weeks. Therefore it can not be ordered online (USA) and must be purchased in a Lush store. You must also keep the product refrigerated. The product is now available in a new smaller 2.1 oz pot for $5.95. A lot of people used to complain that it was too much product in the larger container and the mask would expire before they could finish it. Lush introduced the smaller size as a solution. The SA told me that I could get about 3 uses out of the jar, but I was actually able to get 5 uses and could have gotten 6 if I had used it a bit more sparingly. If you return 5 empty pots to a Lush store, you will receive a FREE mask which is really cool.

BOO! lol

I use the mask at night before bed about twice a week. Upon applying it, you can feel the ground almond shells which are used to serve as an exfoliating agent. The mask applies pretty thick and you must move quick because it begins to dry and tighten immediately. As the mask begins to tighten there is a tingling sensation. I did not find the tingling uncomfortable at all, in fact I enjoy it and it makes me feel as if I am getting a thorough cleansing. I leave the mask on for about 15 to 20 minutes. I then wet it with warm water and gently massage it into my face to exfoliate before rinsing off.  I find that the almond shells scrub very well but are not too harsh. The mask leaves my face feeling very clean, fresh, soft and smooth. A day or two after using it, I do however notice some new short lived blemishes. Since this is a detoxifying mask, this is expected. Your face is just purging the toxins that the mask draws to the surface.  I did not find the mask too drying, but I do follow with a moisturizer. Using this mask twice a week along with other LUSH skincare products, I have seen a noticeable improvement in the appearance of my skin.

Overall I love the LUSH Brazened Honey Fresh Face Mask.  It pretty much does what it claims for your skin and gets a thumbs up in my book. This mask is not too expensive for the amount of product received and I will definitely be repurchasing.

When I’m not hunting down the latest and greatest beauty products, beating a face or lacing a do, you can find me roaming the streets of NYC in my stilettos looking for the next best restaurant. Or in the kitchen trying to outdo myself from the last time.
