I managed to get a hold of a pot of the Avocado Ice Cream Fresh Face Mask when it was available in April 2021’s Fresh Subscription Box. Previous to this, the fresh face mask had only been available in Lush’s Fresh Shop and Spa in Paris and I believe for a very short while from my favourite Lush store in the world, Lush Liverpool.
Rumour has it that it is soon to become a main line product throughout the UK so I thought it was wise to get my review on it uploaded!
The Avocado Ice Cream fresh face mask has a short and very simple list of ingredients; Fresh avocado, soya yoghurt, kaolin, fresh lemon juice and bergamot oil. It has a refreshingly light, lemony fragrance that is perfect for waking up dull, tired skin.
Consistency wise, the Avocado Ice Cream fresh face mask reminds me a little of hummus. A small amount goes a very long way and it glides on your face with ease.
With Lush’s fresh face masks I always recommend applying them with a tea spoon or face-mask-brush/spatula as this stops any bacteria on your fingers getting into your pot of face-mask-goodness. Using this application technique allows your fresh face mask to stay fresh for longer. Sometimes lasting well after their use-by-date.
All of Lush’s fresh face masks are also meant to be stored in the fridge, some are better left out for a while before applying but I find that with Avocado Ice Cream it is best applied straight out of the fridge. The combination of its coolness alongside the cooling effects of the avocado and soya yoghurt are perfect for this time of year as the weather gets warmer.
What I really liked about the Avocado Ice Cream fresh face mask was how easily it washes off of your face too. I love how effortless using it is, it wipes off just as easily as it glides on and my skin LOVES it. Just 10 minutes of wearing this face mask leaves my face appearing brighter and feeling soft and smooth.
With such a small amount of this face mask going such a long way I don’t think it’s possible to use it all by the date on use-by sticker. As mentioned above, I strongly recommend using a face-mask-brush/spatula to apply it to make it stand the test of time and to get the most out of it.
Overall I am really impressed with the Avocado Ice Cream fresh face mask, if it doesn’t become mainline Lush are definitely making a mistake!
