Review: Lush Ltd. "Oatifix" Face Food

I'm pretty sure you'll be sick and tired of my Lush Ltd. reviews by now... so I apologise for adding yet another one to my ever growing list!! I just had to write a post dedicated to the decadent Oatifix face mask.... 
After another trip to my local retailer, I returned with a bag filled with goodies and a satiated "Lush" thirst!
My latest haul consisted of the following: 

1. "The comforter" bubble bar - £3.99
2. "Honey Bee" Ballistic - £2.95
3. "Eau Roma Water" Toner Spray - £6.75 (250g)
4. "Breath of Fresh Air" Toner Spray - £3.45 (100g)
5. "Oatifix" face mask - R.R.P £5.25

The team at Bath Lush threw in this face mask for me for FREE - everybody likes a freebie right? Especially when it's from the most fantastic store in the WORLD! Maybe it's because I practically live there... they decided to treat their most loyal customer? Hmmm... 

Moving on... 

Here's what Lush claim: 

"Use Oatifix to clean and soften dry and sensitive skin. You will be delighted to hear that Oatifix smells as tempting as a very posh breakfast. Oats are calming, ground almonds give you an exfoliating scrub, bananas are softning and illipe butter reduces redness. Get the Oatifix you need."

My tools:

The Almighty Oatifix mask! 
Textured body puff
Hair band

What did Katie think?:

One word:   I.N.C.R.E.D.I.B.L.E!!!! 

This is one of the best face masks I've ever used and for a face mask addict like me, that's a big statement. The texture is perfect (even if it does feel a little bit weird... ) and it melts into your skin as you apply it. Some other masks are stodgy and difficult to apply, to be honest this one looks like it would be - but it's lovely! 
You could do with a spatula of some kind to help you plaster your face in the stuff, but the "melting" does make it easier... 
The product smells gorgeous, like a cross between marzipan, oats and sweeties - good enough 
to eat (although I didn't attempt it this time!)

It was easier to remove this time after I acquired a particularly handy textured body puff... 
My face felt fresh and pampered afterwards, I love the feeling of flushed out pores and tightened skin after a good facial! 

I'm yet to try the Cupcake face mask from Lush, I think that'll be my next purchase. It'll be interesting to see how it compares to Oatifix... if it even compares at all! 

Love Love LOVE this one!!! Good going Lush Ltd.
