“When it comes to face masks, jelly’s probably not the first thing that comes to mind.”
That’s how Lush begins to explain its latest line of products known as jelly face masks. How can jelly even work as a face mask? It’s not the first time the international cosmetics retailer has introduced jiggly-wiggly products to their stores. Their shower jellies became popular as a fun way to wash up, and now, you can add a little more excitement to your skincare routine.
What is a jelly face mask?
According to Lush, the jelly face masks introduce seaweed as the main ingredient to create a lavish, moisturizing blend filled with carrageenan extract, fresh fruit, and cleansing clays. The fresh fruit is one of the many natural ingredients to give each mask a wobbly texture.
There are four products currently available in U.S. stores:
- Bunny Moon: Unleash a sprinkle of gold dust with a mix that’s best to use when your skin is feeling sore. The gold-dusted jelly mask contains honey, rose, chamomile, and vanilla to help relieve your irritation. Your skin will be bouncing back to normal in no time.
- Just To Clarify: Filled with papaya, orange, and grapefruit juices, expect your skin to brighten up with all these fruit enzymes. It’s the extra polish from the bamboo extract to keep your smooth skin glowing all day long.
- Birth of Venus: Don’t feel blue about your unbalanced skin anymore. Instead, treat your face to mineral-rich fresh sea water tones, lavender oil, and a fresh rose element.
- FOMO: Tired of your redness? Don’t worry, some roses can wash away those worries away. Along with using neroli oil and mineral-rich carrageenan, your skin never looked so clear and smooth.
How does it work?
Each mask is easy to use: all you have to do is pinch a piece of the jelly and blend it on your dry hands until it turns a cream. You smooth the cream on your face and let it sit for around 10 minutes. When ready, wash off with warm water and see how much your skin has changed.
Is it worth buying?
This Lush product doesn’t disappoint to keep your skin smooth. But, what makes it more valuable than other face masks is that this jelly face mask lasts to 4 months. It’s also a great addition for anyone looking to pick up their skin after a long day of work. Besides, seeing the jelly wiggle is half the fun.
