Review: New FOMO Lush Jelly Face Mask

When I saw that Lush were coming out with new products I had to check some of them out and the new range of jelly face masks really intrigued me so I decided to get the two that seemed like they’d suit my skin needs the most. They come in the same size pots at the older style fresh face masks so I thought I’d get a few face masks out of each. They also claim to be self preserving and don’t need to be kept in the fridge which are both real bonuses for me as that is one thing about the older style that puts me off getting them more. These face masks are cruelty free, all Lush products are, and it says these specifically are suitable for vegans.

FOMO is aimed at evening skin tone and calming your skin with Calamine, Kaolin and Rose Absolute. It’s a solid jelly that you take a piece off, rub between your hands and then apply it to your face for five to ten minutes before washing off so I was interested to see how this would work. The new jelly range is available online or in stores and cost £6.95. I’m not sure if they’re included in the masks that you can get free with the black and clear pots, I’ll have to ask next time I go in as that’s how I get all my Lush face masks at the moment.

Review: Lush Rosy Cheeks Fresh Face Mask

Rosy Cheeks is one of the newer Lush Fresh Face Masks and comes in the 75g black pots for £7.25. It’s also in the offer where you take back five empty, clean black or clear pots or their lip colour tubes and you get a free face mask which is how I get pretty much all of my Lush face masks. This pot can then be used as one of your five different your next one if you want as well.

Rosy Cheeks claims to be calming and a good face mask to reduce redness which is why I decided to give this one a go. My cheeks are pretty pink and it gets even worsein the heat so something to even out any redness on my face is always a good thing. It’s a clay based mask with various rose infusions and rose parts in as well as glycerin, all of which are meant to be calming and cooling for your skin.

Old Vs New: Lush’s Dreamwash Shower Smoothie

dreamwash2

Lush recently released a lot of new products, some of them are reformulated or reshaped versions of existing products so I thought I’d get a few of the new versions of old favourites to see how they compare. The first one and the one I’ve used the most is the Dreamwash shower smoothie. I can’t remember the old price, but it was around the £10 I think for the 250g tub, this isn’t available any more online so if you want to try either of these it has to be the new roll style. The roll style costs £5 for 100g (the size I bought) or a larger 250g chunk is available for £12.50 and you can find these either in Lush stores or online.

The idea of Dreamwash is that it works in a similar way to the Dream Cream which is well known for being good for sensitive skin and eczema sufferers. I have found that when my skin flares up, I have slightly sensitive skin from sunburn or if my skin reacts to something then cool baths and only using the Dreamwash has really helped. It contains calamine, chamomile, aloe, tea tree and lavender which are all ingredients used for sensitive skin and treating acne prone skin.
