Despite them being one of the staple handmade products that natural cosmetics pioneers Lush offer, I have only very recently tried their Fresh Face Masks. Shocking I know for such a Lush addict, but hey, good things come to those who wait!

Yesterday, I tried 'A Crash Course in Skincare', a nourishing mask made from mashed avocado, fresh natural yoghurt and freshly squeezed lemon juice. This is a perfect mask if like me, you have combination skin. The avocado and yoghurt will provide gentle moisture to dry areas while lemon juice will help tighten pores and keep oil at bay.

When applying the mask, it is clear that the mask is packed with fresh avocado and yoghurt because, well, you can smell it. While it is not the most pleasant smell, it isn't too bad, and the smooth cooling texture of the mask more than makes up for it. When you wash the mask off, the only smell you are left with is that of the fresh citrussy lemon, and it really did leave my skin smelling gorgeous.

What's more, the difference in appearance and texture was really noticeable. My skin was left fresh, supple and glowing, perfect for perking up booze bedraggled skin after a heavy weekend!
