"magnaminty is mega-minty"

Prepare your nose to be blasted with minty-ness when you open this tub of grey/green gunk with bits in.

Another of Lush's early-but-staple products, the mask of magnaminty is described as a deep cleaning face and back pack, with clay to draw out impurities from your skin, ground adzuki beans as an exfoliant and peppermint oil to tone the skin and close pores. Like most things Lush, it takes a while to use as you simply smear a blob of gunk all over your face, neck and anywhere else that needs a thorough clean. Wait for 10 minutes or so (basically, until it sets on your face and bits start to flake off when you smile) and then wash off thoroughly. Then admire your lovely, soft, clean skin. Not only is it perfect for normal to greasy skins, but it's also very good for calming many skin problems (I have psoriasis and eczema, magnaminty is superb for calming irritated scaly bits) and is wonderful if one of your PMS symptoms is greasy skin.

Unlike a lot of Lush's highly scented products, this is suitable for both men and women (it's also a very good excuse for getting your partner to massage your back twice: once when applying it and again when washing it off). Just make sure you are careful to use plenty of water to remove it (my advice is to use a flannel and rinse it thoroughly in clean water after use)

Depending on how much you use and how often you use it, a pot can go a long way - if you leave it open or keep it a long tims, it can appear to dry up, but this is resolved if you add a little water.
