By a show of hands who here has had a very long week? 🖐
I know I have which makes me want to stay in my pjs, sleep and watch Hocus Pocus instead of having a productive day that I should have around the house involving folding laundry, cleaning, dishes ect.
Something I know that will be accomplished today is a facemask for my tired skin. I’ve been trying to do better about taking care of my skin and making a routine though I will be switching a few products in the upcoming days when they come in but more to come on that later. Something as small as a few minutes with a facemask can truly leave one feeling pampered and the skin softened and clean after a long day.
I bought the following with my own money, I am in no way affiliated with Lush.
Product: 2.1 oz jelly facemask
Scent: Birth of Venus (Camomile and Lavender)
I wont go into great detail as I have already reviewed this one here. A repurchase, Birth of Venus was a very enjoyable mask. Calming, gentle and is just pure pampering bliss.
Product: 0.8 oz Lip Sugar Scrub
Scent: Bubble Gum
My very first haul in a Lush store (There isn’t a store within several hours of where I live) included one of these little babies right here. Though it smelled and tasted amazing, I remember never using it. Now fast forward several years later to my repurchase and a time where I am dabbling in liquid lipsticks and natural dry lips; this is a life saver! The smell alone just brings back memories to my ole Lush fan girl days.
It has just enough consistency to do it’s job without being too abrasive while leaving your lips with a slight moisture. If you like the sweet, pink sugar taste you can lick it off or wipe it off with a cloth.
Product: 2.1 oz jelly facemask
Scent: Bunny Moon (Honey, Rose and Vanilla Infused)
My second jelly mask purchase. Going in with high hopes from Birth of Venus, I expected this one to be just as amazing since so many others have raved about this mask as being the next favorite though I bought it as it would be the next one to go with my skins needs.
So many comments say that “this product smells so good” or “smells just like honey!” I personally wasn’t a fan of its smell. Not to worry if smells throw you off from a prosuct because you can barely smell it if you can smell it at all once it is applied to your face.
It’s consistency is very thick so it took more effort than BOV to form a paste (I expect the honey?) Which in turn left it difficult to apply to the face and spread out evenly. I was left with uneven patches of my face that had not been covered by mask and big chunks of product that never broke down into a paste. Before reaching for more product and being wasteful as I felt I had gotten enough the first round, I added a splash of water to my hands and worked that into circular motions on my face which seemed to help a little.
I waited the 10 minutes and came back to remove the mask. Now I understand the troubles commenters were saying about having to scrub their face with towels or they thought it would never come off. My exerpiece wasn’t that bad but I did have to put some muscle into getting my face clean and in the end left my face red and irritated.
My final thoughts after using this mask a few times is that it just isn’t the mask for me although it is very moisturizing and softening to the skin. Birth of Venus is still my current go to.
So there you are! Have you tried any of the Jelly Mask? Which are your favorites?
