5 lush face masks to mask your stress away

If you're a big face-masker like I am, then you've probably tried Lush before. But have you tried these 5 Lush masks?

5 lush face masks to mask your stress away
Alyssa Owings

I love wearing face masks. On a Friday night, a Tuesday morning, while I'm drinking a coffee on Wednesday while I''m writing an article and watching a true crime documentary... It doesn't really matter to me. I have a lot that I like, but my favorite place to buy my masks is from Lush. They have so many different ones that all target different things, and over the last three years, I've found some awesome ones that I think are really good at getting rid of stress and helping me to relax.

1. Birth of Venus Jelly Mask


​This is the mask I'm wearing in the cover photo. It was gifted to me as a birthday present last year and I grew to really love it. I had never used a jelly mask before I was given this one, and I can attest to the fact that they're a cool experience. I really like the way it smells, too, which is crucial if you're trying to get rid of some of your stress. Just don't be dumb and use it after the expiration date like I did because it will make your face itch.

2. Cup o' Coffee


This was the first mask I ever tried from Lush. Freshman year, I thought I would try to be cute and take really early morning classes. As you can imagine, it wasn't one of my greatest ideas and I really struggled. I tried not to look like absolute garbage when I went to class in the morning because I usually ended up having really long days, so I wanted to look at least semi-presentable. This mask was the perfect solution to that.

On the days that I had early morning classes, I would put this mask on for ten or fifteen minutes while I did the rest of my morning routine stuff and when I washed it off, my skin looked awesome. I looked like I had been up for two hours and had six cups of coffee and was ready to tackle the day. That was literally never true, but at least I looked like it was.

3. Mask of Magnaminty


Another of my absolute favorites. If you tend to get breakouts because you're stressed or you just want to better exfoliate your face, this is a good one to use. You don't have to keep this one in the fridge but I like to because it makes it extra-cooling when you put it on.

It's very cleansing and as someone with mildly sensitive skin, I think this one is probably a good one for any skin type!

4. Catastrophe Cosmetic


This one is really nice to help calm your skin. It's another one of those masks thats great if you've got some breakouts or if you have a lot of redness on your skin. It has actual pieces of fresh blueberries in it which for one is just really cool but for two smells really nice.

Since it has fruit in it it is required to be refrigerated but that's something I don't mind. I pretty much refrigerate all of my face masks from LUSH because I just like the cooling sensation they give you if you do that.

5. Rosy Cheeks


Last but not least is this doozy. I personally have never used this mask (because I don't like the smell of rose very much) but I know people that have and swear by it. Like a lot of LUSH's masks, it is supposed to give a calming effect to the skin, but this one is also supposed to leave your skin looking more matte! Can I get a round of applause from my oily-skin community?

With the coming school year looming on the horizon (it's just over a month away for some people!) these face masks will definitely help you reign in your stress and stay looking your best... even when you do have three books to read and five papers to write in one week.

Stay calm and mask on.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Urban Intellectuals

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.
