Masks -LUSH -Bunny Moon

I wasn't entirely sold on LUSH's new jelly masks, but I picked up Bunny Moon because my skin was freaking out and I wanted something soothing while it sorted itself out. Packaging is standard LUSH packaging - tiny clear tub (which I was told by the sales associate also counts toward their tub return perk). It's easy enough to use, pinch off a little bit and work it into a paste, smear all over one's face. Let it dry for ten minutes or so, and then rinse off (also doesn't take too much elbow grease to rinse off - another added bonus). The Bunny Moon has tiny flecks of gold glitter at the top, and is so pretty! Scent is soothing, not overpowering.

Man, when I wash this off after ten minutes, my skin is glowing, and so, so, soft. Redness has diminished, and it helped soothe some of my really inflamed areas. I follow up with a thick moisturizer and my skin has never felt happier. This mask hasn't caused any adverse reactions for my very sensitive, acne-prone, dry or reactive skin. If you're looking for your first mask for a foray into the jelly masks, this is it!

I'm about half-way through my tub, and I've used it about seven times. The sales associate told me they last longer than their traditional face masks, and that you can probably get a good 15+ uses out of one tub.



Shampoo -LUSH -Daddyo shampoo

I love this! Really nice product, I'm pretty blonde (dyed), I use this once a week, it gets rid of the brassiness and makes me look even blonder!!
The trick with this is wash in and wash out pretty much immediately, as it contains pretty natural dyes it could colour your highlighted or natural hair if left on for too long!
I really like the smell of this too, only thing is that it is pretty pricey the smallest bottle is $11 Canadian but considering I only use it once a week I can get over it!


Masks -LUSH -1000 Millihelens Jelly Face Mask

This is my first foray into Lush's new jelly face masks. When describing my skin (acne prone combo skin, oily t-zone and normal elsewhere) the Lush sales rep actually recommended me two of the other jelly masks. FOMO and The Birth of Venus, I think. I ended up going with this one in the end, partly because FOMO seemed very similar to Rosy Cheeks which I currently have a tub of, and partly because of the inclusion of green tea and witch hazel in 1000 Millihelens. My skin has always reacted well to Lush products containing witch hazel in the past, and this turned out to be no exception.

I am currently battling some hormonal acne, and while I don't know how much this mask does for my active spots, it certainly clears up clogged pores and brightens my skin a lot. It's certainly a very enzymic mask, and it gives me a slight tingle when applied - though nothing crazy. Lush says to only let it sit on the skin for 5-10 minutes, and for sensitive and/or drier skin I'd definitely stay within that time limit. Personally I let it sit for about 10-15 minutes, and when it wash it off my skin is brighter, clearer and smoother. Not a miracle mask, but a nice one all the same. In the future I don't think I would use it in the winter though, as I think it will be a little bit too harsh and drying for me when my skin becomes more prone to surface dryness due to the cold. I can see myself repurchasing it and use during the summer, though.

I've seen others say that this mask is harder to turn into a paste than the other jelly masks, and I hope that is true, because it is a bit tricky to use. I can never get it to a smooth paste, it's always chunky and therefore hard to spread evenly on the skin. On the plus side, it's not one of those masks that you need a really thick layer in order to get results. It really is a unique face mask, and the consistency means a little goes a long way. Much, much longer than Lush's own estimate, which I believe is something like 5-6 uses if I remember correctly. I've probably used mine 6 times already, with at least 2/3 of the pot left. So don't be intimated by the price per application, as it'll probably last a lot longer than it seems.

Having just tried this one mask, I feel the same about it as I do about Lush's shower jellies - not the most user friendly, but they're childishly fun to use. A sweet fun fact is that every mask is apparently inspired by a "badass Lush babe", i.e. Lush businesswomen. This one they say is inspired by Lush co-founder Helen Ambrosen. Girl power face masks is the new face masks!

+ Cruelty free
+ Vegan (4 out of 5 jelly masks are, only Bunny Moon isn't due to the inclusion of honey)
+ Clarifying, brightening and smoothing
+ Smells like apples and green tea - really fresh!
+ Doesn't dry down on skin, so no itchy stiff feeling
+ A little goes a long way - it feels very potent!
+ Self-preserving, so no artificial preservatives
+ A lot longer shelf-life than Lush's fresh face masks, at 4 months. Can also be stored in room temperature.

- The inclusion of perfume seems unnecessary when you have so many natural fragrances in there
- The skin can feel slightly tight and dehydrated if left on too long
- Doesn't turn into a smooth paste like the other jelly masks seem to

Cleansers -LUSH -Ultra Bland

I️ am on my third tub of this stuff and I️ have to say I️ really enjoy it. I️ don’t use it daily, but when I️ feel like my skin could use a break from all the harsh washes and scrubs I️ use on a weekly basis but I️ still need to remove my makeup, I️ turn to this and I’m always really satisfied afterward. I’ve noticed a lot of people saying they feel as though it leaves a “film” on your skin afterward, well isn’t that the point? After I️ use this stuff I️ feel like I️ need less moisturizer than normal. I️ massage a decent amount all over my face then either remove with a warm wash cloth or toner and a cotton round (I️ use Lush’s Breath of Fresh Air). I️ have pretty sensitive skin and this has always done a good job of removing my makeup and never causing irritation.

I gotta say I'm really loving this stuff, after suffering from numerous breakouts, dry skin, etc., I was desperate to find something that worked. After using this for a few days I noticed my skin started getting more supple and the breakouts were improving a lot!
