Q:Should I damp my face before applying this mask?Asked on 1/15/2015 by Stephanie
A:Hi there! Thanks for your question!
Yes I would recommend always wetting your face before using a mask or a cleanser, so it will grab a hold of your skin better :)

Q:Hi, I've asked my parents to bring me some LUSH goodies from Italy this weekend since we don't have it here in Greece. Say they're buying Catastrophe Cosmetic on Monday, refrigerate it till Tuesday and then fly back home on a two hour flight (plus the extra time waiting at both airports)...will it survive these few hours out of the fridge and the flight in general? Thank you in advance!Asked on 11/14/2014 by replicant from Athens, Greece
A:If you're travelling with one of our Fresh Face Masks, we recommend packing it with an ice pack just to ensure it stays in top condition.Answered on 11/19/2014 by Serena from LUSH Direct
Q:I was given this mask as a gift, but the giver didn't realize it needed to be refrigerated. It was kept out of the fridge, unopened, for 2 days. Is it still okay to use?Asked on 3/31/2014 by Mindy from Vernal, UT
A:I would recommend returning it to a shop for an exchange.Answered on 4/1/2014 by Kayla from LUSH DIRECT
Q:Can this be used on oily skin? My skin is also very sensitive. Thanks in advanceAsked on 2/1/2014 by Ashley
A:Yes, this mask can be used on your face if it is both sensitive and oily. There are a number of ingredients that will work to help combat the oiliness as well be gentle enough for your sensitivities.Answered on 3/21/2014 by Kendra M from LUSH Direct
A:Yes it can! I have very oily skin and get irritated rather easily, but I have had no problems with irritation or grease with the Catastrophe Cosmetic. If you really want something to help the oils on your face, I would also recommend the Love Lettuce, it just eats up all that oil!Answered on 2/22/2014 by Chrissy from Austin, TX
Q:I've used this mask twice and it's made my breakouts worse. Is this normal?Asked on 1/30/2014 by Jasmine
A:The first few times you use this mask you may notice break-outs. Our masks reach very deep into your pores to pull out all the dirt and debris located there, so until your face gets used to this, you might have some breakouts. However, after a few uses, your face should adjust, and the benefits of the mask will be much more apparent.Answered on 3/21/2014 by Kendra M from LUSH Direct
Q:My mask has passed the expiration date but I have kept it in my fridge the entire time and not yet opened it. Is it still ok to use since it has not been opened it or does it expire right on the expiration date regardless of if it has been opened?Asked on 10/19/2013 by Nicole
A:With all our fresh face masks, we do not add any preservatives to them, so it's recommended that you use it before it's expiration date, even if it hasn't been opened. You should also be keeping this item refrigerated at all times.Answered on 11/28/2013 by Anonymous
A:The Catastrophe Cosmetic Fresh Face Mask does not contain any preservative ingredients, so we do not recommend that you use it after the "Use By" date, even if it is unopened.Answered on 11/28/2013 by Anonymous
A:No might cause a skin reaction a day or two might be OK to useAnswered on 11/18/2013 by yaya from Oakland , Ca
Q:Unlike other face masks I've tried, Catastrophe Cosmetic seems to be a thick, creamy texture than a liquidy texture. Is it supposed to be like that?Asked on 3/24/2013 by Moondancer from San Antonio, TX
A:Our fresh masks do vary in texture as they are made with different ingredients,so some may be thicker than others.Catastrophe Cosmetic is indeed one of our thicker face masks as it's made with fresh blueberries among the other ingredients.Answered on 9/20/2013 by Anonymous
A:Yes! It makes it feel really good on your skin. :)Answered on 5/12/2013 by Kyndal from Louisiana
Q:If I use this product but not all of it, can I put it back in the fridge and save it for later?Asked on 3/24/2013 by Gracie
A:All of our fresh face masks have a three week shelf life on them, and both the "made on" and "use by" dates are marked on the face stickers on the bottom of the pot. Each pot should give you about three or four uses, and is fine to use until its expiration date!Answered on 8/20/2013 by Melissa S from LUSH Direct
A:Yes! You should get a few uses out of each container, I usually use my masks about 4 times. Just make sure that you use it all up before the expiration date.Answered on 4/5/2013 by k80h from New York
