FOMO Jelly Face Mask from Lush


FOMO Jelly Face Mask is one of 5 brand new face masks that Lush released in July 2017. Face masks aren’t new to Lush but ones made into jellies are! To look at, the jelly face masks resemble an ordinary Lush shower jelly, however they are used very differently. I had seen pictures of the jelly masks from the Lush Summit 2017 back in February, unfortunately they weren’t however for sale and were simply there only as a display to show the world all of the things to come…

We however didn’t have to wait long as back in July the jelly face masks became available in all stores. I always use a clean tea spoon when it comes down to getting Lush face masks out of their pot. I use a spoon to apply the fresh face masks too, I feel it helps the product to last longer, so many people complain about the fresh face masks having such a short shelf life. My method for using a spoon is to stop any cross contamination happening, grabbing a chunk of it out of the pot with your fingers is quick and easy BUT it risks the chance of bacteria from your hands getting in to the rest of the product that you want to save for another time. Using your fingers even if washed well can leave the leftover product to go mouldy very quickly. Since I started using Lush face masks with a spoon my face masks last months and months passed their sell buy if kept in the fridge too.

Containing calamine powder, neroli oil and rose absolute, there are certain elements to FOMO that remind me ever so slightly of the Don’t Look at Me fresh face mask and the Rose Jam shower gel.

When it comes down to the application of the jelly masks it is completely different from how you would apply the fresh ones. Once you’ve spooned a grape sized amount of jelly from the pot you then work it in your hands to form a paste. This action is very similar to what you do when using the fresh face cleansers however you do not add water.

Unlike the fresh face masks the new jelly face masks do not need to be kept in a fridge, I however do store them in a fridge. Jelly masks also have a much longer shelf life than their fresh-face-mask equivalents. You can easily get 6 to 8 masks out of just the one pot. It  forms up a paste very quickly and application is mess-free, quick and easy. After 15 minutes it is time to take the face mask off, I use a hot and wet flannel. It comes off easily and no residue is left on my face at all.

Once the face mask was off my face felt brand new, the redness had gone down and my face was super soft and perfectly hydrated.

The Birth of Venus Jelly Face Mask from Lush

The Birth of Venus Jelly Face Mask

The Birth of Venus Jelly Face Mask is one of 5 brand new face masks that Lush released this July. Face masks aren’t new to Lush but ones made into jelly are… To look at, the jelly face masks resemble an ordinary Lush shower jelly they are however used very differently. I had seen pictures of them from the Lush Summit 2017 but unfortunately, they weren’t for sale. I just had to forget about them and hope that Lush made them available in the future and this July, they did!

I always use a clean tea spoon when it comes down to getting Lush face masks out of their pot. I use a spoon to apply the fresh face masks too, I feel it helps the product to last longer, so many people complain about the fresh face masks having such a short shelf life. My method for using a spoon is to stop any cross contamination happening, grabbing a chunk of it out of the pot with your fingers is quick and easy BUT it risks the chance of bacteria from your hands getting in to the rest of the product that you want to save for another time.

Containing fresh sea water, lavender, chamomile, frankincense and myrrh, there are certain elements to Birth of Venus that remind me ever so slightly of the Blackberry and Big Blue bath bomb.

Applying the jelly masks is completely different from how you would apply the fresh ones. Once you’ve spooned a grape sized amount of jelly from the pot you then work it in your hands to form a paste. This method left me feeling a little uneasy as I am a germ freak and don’t really like to man handle a product for my face with my fingers like that. I however always trust Lush and the results turned out okay.

Unlike the fresh face masks the new jelly face masks do not need to be kept in a fridge, they also have a much longer shelf life than their fresh-face-mask equivalents. Even with this in my mind, I still decided that I’d use a spoon to get the product out of the pot, with it being a jelly formula I thought this would prove a little difficult, it however worked just fine. I found that a very small amount of the, The Birth of Venus jelly in particular went a long way. You can easily get 6 masks out of just the one pot.

Mashing the jelly mask up with my hands was a strange sensation at first, it however formed a paste very quickly, the application of a face mask has never gone on so smoothly for me, normally with the fresh face masks I get drops of it everywhere. After 15 minutes, I took the face mask off with a hot and wet flannel. It came off easily and no residue was left on my face at all.

After a couple of hours I found it had made my skin a little too oily, at first it felt amazing but after an hour or so my skin felt clammy, although my skin had become a little oily than I like, my skin still have a glow about it. Overall I am still impressed with this jelly face mask as it is so easy to apply, less mess than the alternative Lush face masks and it also smells delicious. The fact it makes my skin feel clammy hasn’t put me off of it entirely, I am just going to save it for when my face is in need of some extra hydration instead. I think it will be perfect after a day in the sun so I will be packing it in my suitcase to take on honeymoon with me.
