Another week and another face mask. I’m surprised by these Lush jelly face masks, I honestly thought they’d be a bit of a novelty product to start with but the FOMO one I tried last week made me excited to give this 1000 Millihelens Lush Jelly Face Mask a go. This one is also £4.95 for the small pot but, judging by the previous one I tried they’ll last quite a while as you really don’t need much.
The 1000 Millihelens mask is meant to target problem skin with witch hazel and green tea which seem to be common ingredients to help acne prone skin. It’s another clay based mask, though I don’t think this formula has as high percentage of clay in there as the FOMO one did. As these are jellies and self preserving there’s no need to keep them in the fridge, you simply tear a piece off, rub it between your hands and the leave it on for five to ten minutes, then wash off as you do with most traditional clay masks.
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.
I think almost all of my Lush orders end up being this time of year with the Valentine’s, Mother’s Day and Easter products as I tend to like the scents they come out with in the ranges. This time there were a couple of the Kitchen products I wanted too so I got them as well. They were the Happy Blooming Jelly and the Happy soap. The Kitchen makes products, a different one each day of the week, and these are only available in small batches so they run out quickly. These are either old products that have been discontinued or sometimes exclusives like perfumes, Oxford Street Store products or products that are going to be released in the future.
The Valentine’s Day range doesn’t really have a theme scent wise, at least that I can tell, and some are old scents returning from previous years. I only ordered four things from the range as they were the ones that appealed to me the most. The ones I chose were Prince Charming shower cream, Roses all the Way soap, The Kiss lip gloss and the Unicorn Horn bubble bar. All of the products that I bought in the valentine’s Day range are vegan friendly. The remaining two are a lip scrub in the same scent as the lip gloss and the Lover Lamp bath bomb that has a chocolate orange scent which I am not really a fan of in bath products.
As far as I know these products are going to be available until Valentine’s Day, that’s the way they normally work but if something goes out of stock close to Valentine’s Day I think in the past they haven’t restocked them. Other times there have been limited edition products a while after they’ve been discontinued.
