LUSH Catastrophe Cosmetic

I finally managed to collect 5 black pots and hand them in to my nearest LUSH store in exchange for a free face mask! I decided to try Catastrophe Cosmetic this time as I hadn't tried it before.

What's in it and what does it do?
This face mask contains calamine powder, fresh blueberries and various oils. I leave this on for 10 minutes and I make various funny faces to loosen the dried face mask so it comes of easily. After using this my skin feels siginficatly softer (I got a feeling that's the powder) and my skin looks much calmer - The face mask intends to reduce inflammation and acts as a mild antiseptic, so it's great for calming the skin. One slightly negative point is that this did leave a slightly white'ish sheen after washing it off - Again I presume this is the powder.

How much and how long?
For £5.50 you get a 75g pot. Last time I used their face masks it lasted for 2 months (using it twice weekly) so it's not bad at all! As always, you have to keep their face masks in the fridge.

How does it smell?
The light, sweet, powdery scent reminds me of a bit of Parma Violets!

Other comments:
Would I buy this myself? Yes, I probably would! I do love Cupcake a little bit more than this but if I want to mix it up then CC it is :)
Would I recommend it? Yes! On my combination skin it was a nice treat but if you have suffer from redness then maybe this will would even better for you :)
