The power of the mask.
During Covid-19, we have been turning to cloth face coverings to protect ourselves and our communities from contracting Covid-19. We want to take a moment to honor how one small act of self-care (wearing a cloth face covering when outside the home) can have a big impact on your community.
This year for National Face Mask Day, we are celebrating things differently. We want to elevate the people who take care of others as well as the power of the mask, self-care and fresh ingredients.
Self-care has never been more important.
We believe in the power of fresh ingredients. That's why you'll find so many of them in our handmade products, including our face masks. We encourage you to always listen to your skin and determine its needs, then take a deep dive into our ingredients to discover the benefits that will work best for you.
Our iconic face masks especially are made with fresh ingredients and are great for every skin type. Need a little bit of a wake-up? Cup O' Coffee is made with real coffee to liven up tired skin. Want a deep cleanse with a tingly feel? Mask Of Magnaminty uses kaolin clay and peppermint oil to clean up your pores and leave your skin feeling smooth and revived.
You can also brighten up skin with Don't Look at Me which uses lemon juice to tone and ground rice to gently scrub. Looking for something to soothe those sun kissed cheeks? Rosy Cheeks uses calamine and Turkish rose oil to calm the skin, soothe red tones and restores balance. Feeling a little sensitive? Oatifix uses softening mashed banana and ground almonds to soften dryness.
Buy them online and pick up in-store!
Now that our stores are reopening, we are so happy to welcome back our fresh face masks. While we won’t be demoing them your skin (gotta keep safe), you can order your freshly-made faves online and pick them up in-store any time you need a face mask ASAP. Please note: we ask that if you’re coming into our stores that you wear a cloth face covering of your own.
Skin need a wake up? Cup O’ Coffee is the perfect mask for that.
Mood feeling lifted just thinking about them? Us, too! So mark your calendars: August 11th is National Face Mask Day!
Why National Face Mask Day?
Let’s face it—masks are seriously underrated. That’s why, last year, we petitioned the powers-that-be to create a day to celebrate all things face mask!
This year, it’s going to be a little different. We want to celebrate all the hard work cloth masks have been doing this year to protect our communities.
Join the celebration
We want everyone to experience the joy, relaxation and skincare benefits of face masks, so we’re encouraging you to take 15 minutes out of your busy day to feel the power of the face mask. Think about how cloth face coverings have allowed you to get closer to your friends and family, as they have become part of life as restrictions are eased.
On August 11th you can join the celebration on Instagram: simply snap a selfie of you wearing your cloth face covering or using your favorite Lush face mask and tag it using #nationalfacemaskday. You’ll be entered to win a $500 USD Lush gift card plus a one-on-one private virtual consultation with our brand and product expert, Erica Vega. Check out the full terms and conditions for more details, and happy masking.
