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.
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.
This post is kind of a mix of first impressions, a recent purchases haul kind of post and some mini reviews as I bought a mix of new things to me and old favourites. I’m going to go into more detail with a couple of them in the future when I’ve tried them out some more. Two of them are from the Lush Kitchen which means they’re limited edition, the one is online only but the other is available in Lush Oxford Street store if you live near there.
In this order I bought the Olive Branch shower gel in the 250g size, the Self Preserving Dream Cream and a 250g chunk of Dream Wash from the permanent line as well as the Comforter Shower Jelly and the Perspective lipstick which is the one from the Oxford Street store. There is a version of Perspective available on the website, it’s in the original Emotional Brilliance glass bottle style packaging, but this is the more solid stick lipstick style, I’m not sure how they compare but just to know this exact product isn’t available online any more.
