Flopsy Face Wash Jelly from Lush

Flopsy Face Wash JellyThe Flopsy Face Wash Jelly is the second of its kind. Prior to its Easter 2017 release, only one other face wash jelly had ever been available, the Papa Noël was the very first and it was available back in 2016’s Winter range. Although the Papa Noël had a few teething troubles at first, Lush quickly rectified them and a product that was first seen as just a novelty became very popular because of how well it actually worked as a face wash.

Last year (2016) I was more than apprehensive when I heard that Lush were bringing out a jelly face wash. Don’t get me wrong, I trust Lush and all of their ideas completely, it just took me a bit of time to get my head around. I had however had the very same feelings before I tried Lush’s shower jellies, with this at the back of my mind, I didn’t hesitate to pick up a pot. As you can see from my review of Papa Noël, I was very impressed with it. I was therefore really excited when Lush announced that as a part of their Easter 2017 line there would be a brand new one for us to try.

As you can see from the photograph below Flopsy is not just a face wash jelly but also a novelty mask of some sort, making it the perfect prop for a good selfie or two. Luckily for you I will not be modelling it on my face, the below photo will have to suffice!Flopsy Face Wash Jelly insertAlthough I’m a little mad at Lush for not bringing back last years (2016) Bouncy Bunny shower jelly my anger dampened somewhat when I learnt that their Flopsy face wash jelly shared its scent with the Snowman shower jelly and Bunch of Carrots reusable bubble bar.

Flopsy has a very uplifting and refreshing fragrance, packed with zesty lemon and bergamot oils it’s the perfect product to brighten up tired skin. Getting the whole thing out of the pot is quite the task. It’s easy enough but once it is out it’s really hard to control, after all it is jelly.. I decided that it would be easier to have my Flopsy broken up into smaller more manageable chunks.

Since breaking it up, the Flopsy face wash jelly has been much easier to use. It lathers up very quickly and the smallest amount is needed to wash your face. Each chunk of the jelly can be used several times making it excellent value for money.flopsylulu.pngDeclaring that my skin is the ‘combination’ type is the understatement of the century, it’s indecisive, annoying and a nightmare to keep on top of, therefore when it comes to face washes I am very, very fussy, so far Flopsy used alongside some Tea Tree Water Toner Water has however kept my face in check.

My skin appears brighter and it has also become a lot smoother since using Flopsy. Overall I am really impressed with the Flopsy face wash jelly. It is an excellent face wash and I am glad I tried it as I know if I hadn’t I’d still just think of it as a novelty product not giving it much attention at all.

Will I buy it again? possibly. It’s a good product, I find I however have to change up my skincare routine every few weeks as my skin becomes used to a product very quickly. Alternating between Flopsy, Let the Good Times Roll and Herbalism seems to be working really well for me at the moment, although I may not be buying it again very soon or stocking up before Easter is over, my Flopsy face wash jelly will be placed at the front of my shelf for easy access.

Papa Noël Face Wash Jelly from Lush

Papa Noel Face Wash Jelly.pngWhen I first see that Lush Cosmetics had created a Face Wash Jelly I was a little apprehensive. Don’t get me wrong, I trust Lush and all of their ideas completely, it just took me a bit of time to get my head around.

When it comes to my face I am always wary, I have the craziest skin that can never make its mind up. One day it can be crying out for hydration, the next I’m spotty and then sometimes it can also be super greasy and then the vicious circle begins again.

Declaring that my skin is the ‘combination’ type is the understatement of the century, it’s indecisive, annoying and a nightmare to keep on top of.

The first time that I actually see the Papa Noël Face Wash Jelly was at the Lush Creative Showcase 2016. I was still uncertain at the thought of trying it, I had however had the very same feelings before I tried Lush’s shower jellies, with this at the back of my mind, I didn’t hesitate to pick up a pot. After all, it was such an interesting and new concept that I couldn’t not pick one up, even if it was just for the novelty factor…

As you can see from the photograph above Papa Noël Face Wash Jelly is in fact a mask of some sorts. Some people have chopped theirs up into pieces using a chunk a time, I have however left mine all together – for now anyway.

It has a refreshing citrus scent although it’s not quite as tangy as the likes of the Snowman Shower Jelly. I am a huge fan of all things citrus and although Papa Noël is by all means a citrus scent it’s slightly more delicate than I am used to from Lush. This could however be a  positive point. After all, the product is for your face so, (no pun intended) the less in your face the scent is, the better.

I was pleasantly surprised when I first used this face wash. It lathered up within seconds and left my face feeling well cleansed, brighter and smoother. I found that it was really good at clearing out my most troublesome and stubborn pores too.

What has also impressed me is how long it has lasted. I have used it several times now and there doesn’t appear to be any signs of it getting any smaller. One of the things that won me over with the shower jellies is their staying power. Papa Noël, is just as I had originally described my first shower jelly Santa’s Belly, almost indestructible!

I am very, very surprised at how well I got on with this brand new face wash jelly. I wasn’t expecting very much at all, I thought it was just a novelty product that would be a prop for a good selfie or two.

After I have used it my face feels really clean, it seems to have helped the condition of my skin too, since using it I still get the odd dry patch but it seems to keep any excess oil at bay throughout the whole day.

As I have said, I am really fussy when it comes to products for my face and I really wasn’t expecting such positive results from the Papa Noël face wash jelly. I am sorry Lush, I underestimated you again and by now I really, really should know better…

One thing I would like to add to this review is that I wouldn’t recommend using Papa Noël every day, this is however how I feel about all cosmetic products. I find that alternating cosmetic products keeps your skin on its toes. There’s nothing worse than a product that works great for you but because you use it so often your skin begins to get so used to it that it doesn’t do such a great job anymore.

Overall I am thoroughly impressed, when it comes down to skin care it’s near on impossible for me to be so impressed. I am no longer apprehensive in regards to further releases of Lush face wash jellies, I can’t wait to see if Lush have any more on the horizon?
