There is no denying that I don’t love a good face mask, and Lush do some of the best face masks on the market. I have previously reviewed both their Bunny Moon and The Birth of Venus masks and I found them both to be fantastic so I was quite excited when I discovered Lush had added a new jelly face mask to their festive range.
This new face mask is named Rudolph and contains orange and cocoa powder to both help tone and brighten your complexion. Also the combination of these ingredients mean that this mask smells exactly like a Terry’s chocolate orange but not in a overpowering sickly way.
I found the texture of this mask is similar to the Bunny Moon mask as it has a very creamy consistency once it is worked into a paste. Due to its smooth texture I found that it glides onto my skin quickly and with minimum effort meaning you can apply this mask within seconds with no fuss whatsoever. I have been leaving the Rudolph facemask on for around 20 minutes and I have been pleasantly surprised on both occasions with how the mask / my skin doesn’t have that horrible tight feeling that many masks cause after they have dried out. Nope, I am still able to move my facial features when wearing this facemask without feeling like my face is turning to stone.
Once I come to remove the Rudolph facemask I have noticed it tends to dry a little bit like liquid latex and I am able to peel parts of the facemask off my face. It is an oddly satisfying feeling and I don’t feel as if I am damaging my skin in doing so. However, if the idea of peeling a mask off your face is not appealing then don’t worry, I have also found that you can remove this mask with some warm water and a face cloth.
After removing Rudolph my skin does look brighter and feels both firmer and smoother. Also, I have noticed that the following day when applying my makeup my foundation glides on and stays in place better throughout the day.
Crunch time though, will I buy this face mask again? Yes, yes and another yes! I am actually slightly devastated that this face mask is going to be an exclusive product and not part of the main line as I feel this is the best Lush face mask I have used to date, and you know I have tried out quite a few! Fingers crossed it will freeze well as I feel come the end of 2018 I will have stockpiled enough tubs of this face mask to last a fair few years!
