The challenge begins again! And this time, we have a special guest: my sister Maddie! (Also known as Aggie).
Today we’re trying one of Lush’s famous fresh face masks. We would have gone for the chocolate one, but it had sold out. Alas. Instead we’ve purchased the Catastrophe Cosmetic mask, which is blueberry flavoured. Yay!
20:30 – Effie: Oh dear. There’s a puddle of liquid in the bottom of the tub. I knew I should have put it in the fridge…ah well, mixing it around a bit can’t hurt.
20:31 – Effie: Trying to get it to stick to my face. It sticks better than expected, which is good, but the blue/grey colour of the mask makes me feel like Shrek with a cold. At least I smell better than Shrek.
20:31 – Aggie: Blueberries blueberries!
20:31 – Effie: How does it feel Aggie?
20:32 – Aggie: I feel a bit like an avatar. Cos my face is blue.
20:32 – Aggie: I don’t really know. I don’t wear that many face masks. How am I supposed to feel?
20:32 – Effie: *checks packet* Calmed and cleansed. With blueberries.
20:32 – Aggie: Oh.
20:33 – Effie: For fun facts, it also contains calamine and chamomile, rose, and almond oils to soothe and soften the skin.
20:33 – Aggie: My top lip itches.
20:33 – Aggie: YOU CAN’T WRITE THAT!
20:33 – Effie: It’s supposed to be truthful. My face is starting to go hard.
20:34 – Aggie: Mine already went hard. Now it’s kind of cracking.
20:34 – Effie: Maybe we should stop talking…
20:35 – Effie and Aggie both start rapping in French, because the last episode of Sex and the City is on the telly. “La belle et le bad boy” just came on.
20:36 – Effie: This is a really cool song.
20:36 – Aggie: MC Solaar.
20:37 – Effie: Alexander Petrovsky is such a twat.
20:37 – Effie: How does your face feel now?
20:37 – Aggie: Um. Um. Um. Hehehhehe.
20:38 – Effie: Don’t laugh, your face will crack.
20:38 – Aggie: Um…it feels…HAHAHAHA.
*both start laughing*
20:38 – Aggie: Kind of softy and cleansey.
20:39 – Effie: That works.
20:39 – Aggie: But my cheeks feel tight. Don’t say that out of context. My face cheeks. MY FACE CHEEKS.
20:39 – Effie: Is ok Aggie, my lips feel tight too.
20:39 – Aggie: And the corners of my nose feel tingly.
20:39 – Effie: My forehead itches.
20:42 – Effie: Is it time to wash it off now?
20:42 – Aggie: I dunno.
20:42 – Effie: It did say 5 to 10 minutes…
20:43 – Aggie: Lololol.
20:43 – Effie: What?
20:43 – Aggie: I burped…
…A few minutes later…
Effie: That was easier to wash off than I expected. It sort of melts under the water.
Aggie: I’m sleepy.
Effie: How does your face feel?
Aggie: It feels soft but not in an oily way. Most of the time when I do face masks, my face feels really tight afterwards, but this one just feels cleansed and not tight.
Effie: Yay! Thumbs up?
Aggie: Yeah. Would’ve liked more blueberries.
