Lush Love Lettuce Fresh Face Mask

Love Lettuce was the third fresh face mask I ever tried from Lush, the first being Brazened Honey which still remains to be my favourite (see review here) and then Catastrophe Cosmetic, another favourite of mine (see review here) Unfortunately, I only got to use Love Lettuce twice. Although all the fresh face masks from Lush have, as with all the products from Lush, an expiry date, usually I can make them stretch a week or so after their expiration date. That said, a week before the expiration date for Love Lettuce, I went to use it and it was... fluffy. It had grown mould! Obviously, it went straight in the bin and I was gutted that I had only got to use it twice. But I still wanted to review it for you as it is another fresh face mask from Lush that I have enjoyed using!

Like all the fresh face masks from Lush, this is full to the brim with lovely ingredients. It's main ingredient is a seaweed gel which is made using agar, added to this is honey and almond oil to soften and moisture the skin. Kaolin and fullers earth deep clean, absorb grease and debris as well as tightening the skin. And there is also ground almonds and ground almond shells, so that when rinsing off this green hulk like mask, you can use it as an exfoliant to exfoliate away any dead skin! It is fragranced with French lavender as well, which balance the skin's sebum production, meaning this is a mask for oily skin as well as other skin types! 

As with all of Lush's products, this fresh face mask is completely cruelty free!

This mask applies really nicely and although all of Lush's fresh face masks are kept in the fridge, this to me had the most cooling and refreshing affect when applied to my skin. The ground almond and ground almond shells work as a perfect exfoliate and overall the mask isn't too heavy. It's a very pleasant mask to use and I know I'll be repurchasing because I enjoyed using it and will make sure to get more use out of my pot next time!

I am currently trying out a fourth fresh face mask from Lush, and that is Cupcake, which I shall be reviewing soon. I also really want to try Oatfix and BB Seaweed!

You can buy Love Lettuce either in store or on the online Lush website, here, and it costs £5.95 per 75g pot!

  5. I've never used Lush before but I have been in a Lush shop but the strong scents burn my nose! Not because they're horrible but I think it's because they're so potent! When some of the products are separate and not all crowded into one shop then they do smell nice! Looking to try out some various types of skin care as well xo
