Jelly on your face…?
Seems like it! The Jelly face masks were revealed earlier this year and they are now to be found in Lush stores everywhere, and they’re really interesting. I had this pot sent to me by the lovely Storm and I really fell in love with it and how fun it is.
Get back the skin you myth’d with toning witch hazel and antioxidant green tea. Why not give it a Troy?
This face mask contains ingredients like apple juice, green tea, witch hazel, Sicilian lemon and Brazilian orange oils, and neroli oil. All of these will help brighten your complexion and work on any trouble spots you might have. All of the ingredients are ethically sourced and they are all vegan so it’s safe to use for pretty much anyone. The ingredients used have exfoliating, rejuvenating and moisturizing properties so they will be a treat for your skin.
What is made kind of obvious by the name, is that they have somewhat of a jelly texture to them. It honestly feels like Lush accidentally combined a shower jelly with one of the fresh face masks one day and just rolled with it. It works, although it is a bit lumpy when you use it. You’re supposed to either rub the jelly directly onto your face, or break off a piece and rub it between your hands to form more of a paste before applying it to your face. I chose the latter, and it kind of looks and feels like the Mask of Magnaminty from Lush.
It is not as tingly or cooling, but it does feel good on the skin, and you can really feel the witch hazel work on any impurities you might have. I had a very recent breakout around my nose and boy did it attack that area. My skin felt a lot better afterwards though, so for me it was definitely worth the pain as it stopped the spot from growing bigger.
The mask is to be left on for 5 to 10 minutes before rinsing it off with warm water. I used warm water and a washcloth and it was fairly easy to remove, it just took a couple of wipes here and there to get it all off. I didn’t feel any immediate miracles happening with my skin but as time went on it felt better and better. My skin felt really rejuvenated the morning after and I am definitely going to use this again, at least enough times to use up everything in the pot it came in. The pot is part of the recycling program Lush has too so you can keep it and trade it in for a free fresh face mask when you have five empty ones. Unfortuately the jelly mask doesn’t count as a fresh face mask so you can’t exchange the pots for it.
All in all, I would give this mask 8/10, it would have been a full score if I had felt any immediate effects.
Have you tried a jelly mask before? What did you think of it?
