You all know how much I love Lush products, this is my second chance trying something new from the Harrogate branch, the first time was trying out the toothy and mouthwash tabs. Read it here if you’ve haven’t seen it.
It was very busy on a Sunday so couldn’t get picture of the jelly mask display. I took the hubby with me as well and he was non stop smelling every single thing on display going “mmmmm”…”what’s this…”….
I love the ingredients on every Lush product, personally I think a large majority of their products are highly suitable for people who have dry or eczema sensitive skin. I have dermatitis on my hands and find that using Lush products help immensely with flare ups, I hardly ever get one these days.
There are 4 types of Jelly masks available right now. To apply, simply pinch off a bit of the mask, work it into a paste with clean, dry hands, apply it to your face and leave for 5-10 minutes and then wash off with a warm water rinse or with a cloth.
Introducing the first Jelly mask- “The birth of Venus”, a lovely light blue colour with fresh sea water tones and lavender oil. The carrageenan seaweed gel leaves your skin irresistibly soft.
“Fomo” – cream white in colour, contains calamine powder which calms and soothes, whilst the touch of bright neroli evens out skin tone.
“Just to clarify”- colour of papayas, contains brightening papaya juice and bamboo stem to exfoliate. The only jelly mask in this collection that contains a natural physical exfoliant.
Lastly “1000 millihelens”- the colour of green tea and smells like Granny Smiths but not as sharp. This is my favourite from the word go, contains fresh apple juices and toning green tea, a touch of antibacterial and a natural astringent witch hazel extract. I used this tonight and my skin feels wonderfully soft yet firmer. I had some slight inflammation on the side of my nose and chin, after the mask I felt that this has certainly reduced the redness in those areas. Despite it being astringent, my face still felt very moisturised.
They all smell really pleasant, typical of all lush products.
The Jelly mask comes in a little pot, the lovely Lush assistant cut this into 8 pieces, however half of an 8th was enough to cover my face! At £6.95 for each pot of Jelly mask, divided by 8, that’s only 86p per facial and you can also apply as many times as you like.
Lush Harrogate kindly gave me a sample piece of “1000 millihelens” and “Just to clarify”, I knew I was going to love “1000 millihelens” so I purchased the pot anyway.
Handmade, ethical, against animal testing and fresh, what more reasons do you need to purchase this?
Thank you for reading and go, get yourself to Lush already!!
