If you read my blog regularly you will know that I love a new lush product, but what I love even more than a new product is a brand new type of product that has only just been invented and is a new concept all together. As part of this years Lush summer range, there has been the release of lots of new products and lots of newly invented products. One of these newly invented products is the Jelly Face Mask.
I first saw the jelly face mask when I went to this years Lush Summit. The very exciting and brand new face masks were there to touch, smell and experience but unfortunately they could not be brought. I instantly fell in love with the concept of this new product and being a skincare junkie I couldn’t wait to get my hands on these new face masks and give them a try.
I was therefore very excited when I found out that that the Jelly face mask were being released this summer and couldn’t wait to try them all out. Out of the selection of the five new jelly face masks the one that I decided to try first was the 1000 Millihelens.
This jelly face mask is a dark green colour and contains a whole host of yummy ingredients including apple juice, green tea and witch hazel. What I absolutely love about all of the Lush face masks is that each ingredient is specifically picked to help with a certain aspect of your skin. The 1000 Millihelens jelly mask is no different. Fresh apple juice, lemon oil and orange oil are included to help brighten the skin, green tea helps to tone and witch hazel is a great antibacterial. The 1000 Millihelens mask also has lots of neroli oil. Neroli oil is a great mood booster making this a great mask to help brighten you mood as well.
The 1,000 Millihelens Jelly face mask has a beautiful fresh scent. The inclusion of the apple gives it a lovely crisp element and really reminds me of the Jonny Appleseed bath oil. The scent is very fruity and refreshing making it a lovely mask to help freshen you skin.
The thing I love the most about these Jelly face masks is that they have a really long shelf life and unlike the fresh face masks from Lush they do not have to be kept in the fridge. This means that these face masks are a lot more handy and can even be taken on travels or left at the side of you bath or shower for easy access.
The jelly face masks are super easy to use. All you have to do is pinch a small amount about the size of a grape (you really don’t need much at all). Then mush it up into a paste, you can add a little water if required and pop onto face like you would with an average face mask. Once on the face the consistency of the mask is a lot thinner than the fresh masks from Lush, but you only need a thin layer for this mask to work.
Once washed off my skin was left feeling very fresh and clean. Although maybe not as much of a instant noticeable change in my skin I did notice over the next few days that my skin look a lot clearer and brighter than normal.
Overall I really enjoyed using the 1000 Millihelens face mask. The concept of the jelly mask is really fun and I think it’s great to have a mask with a much longer shelf life.
