Hurry, someone help before it’s too late and I sink back down into the amazing rabbit hole that is Lush! Lush was my first obsession before falling next for candles and soon after; wax. Lush, while on the pricer side (but for good reason) has some very nice products when it comes to pampering oneself. Once I heard about these new face mask that didn’t require being refrigerated and could ship from online (I do not have a store close to me), I was sold on trying one. Unlike normal face mask that have a short shelf life before they expire and have to keep in the fridge, the new jelly mask have a shelf life of up to four months and can live wherever your heart desires. Though I hear for a more relaxing experience with your mask, popping it in the fridge can give cooling properties which is always nice after a long day.
Vendor/Brand: Lush Cosmetics
Product: Jelly Face Mask, 2.1 oz
Scent: The Birth of Venus
First sniff once opening the jar it smells of calming chamomile tea and soft lavender sprigs. Its been too long Lush.. ugh, this just smells so gorgeous. Once on the face it isn’t strong if any noticeable scent at all if that is a worry of yours.
If you’ve ever had one of Lush’s shower jellies, it feels a bit like that on the top but more of a sponge type when you break into it. Once you begin to work a small chunk into a paste the texter changes into more of a cottage cheese consistency before creaming out into a smooth mask you can spread on your face. (And yes, it will make you resemble a Smurf but a very cute Smurf!)
5-7 minutes wearing this mask it did begin to tighten on my face. It wasn’t uncomfortable though unlike some mask I have experienced that have left my face unable to move with it on and caused redness afterwards. After the 10 minute mark it was pretty much completely dry. Now to rinse it off!
This is where I’ve heard mixed reviews. I’ve heard with it being a jelly mask that it never fully dries causing the removal process to be difficult while others say it was a piece of cake. A few swipes with a warm washcloth had it completely off my face in no time, no scrubbing required. Simple, easy removal. I think it all depends on how thick you put on the mask in how your results come out. I believe putting it on thinner is better.
Finishing off my short night of pampering, I enjoyed an older bath bomb I’ve hoarded since last Christmas; So White. It may have not preformed very well on account of it being old but it still smelled wonderful and did it’s job of softening the skin.
Have you tried any of Lush’s face mask? Which is your favorite? Any recommendations? Let me know!
