Lush Fresh Face Mask Love Lettuce [review]

8 comments
Contrary to what the face mask is called, there is no lettuce in this face mask at all. What it does contain is plenty of almonds - shells, oil and all. There's also lavender oil, which you can definitely smell, although it's more of a refreshing scent rather than the traditional lavender scent. Other ingredients include Agar Agar Gel, Kaolin, Honey, Fullers Earth and Chlorophylin. It's green in colour, which is probaly why it's called Love Lettuce. The texture is grainy thanks to the ground almond shells, which means that you can exfoliate your skin while you wash it off. Also, because it has to be kept in the fridge, it's always cold and refreshing to apply.





I apply it quite thick and leave it on for around 10 mins, until it's semi-hardened and it feels tight on my face (which is due to the Fullers Earth). When removing it, I rub my fingers in circular motions in order to fully exfoliate my face to get rid of dead skin cells. There is a slight oily residue left on my skin once the mask has been washed off, but this is removed wheh I dry my face, leaving the skin soft and smooth. I've noticed that I've been getting fewer spots (even though my eating habits have been pretty unhealthy) and when I do get spots, they don't last for very long on my face.

I try to use it every 2-3 days (if I can remember) and my sister uses it as well but there is still quite a bit left. There is a use by date on the tub, which states that it should have been used up three days ago, although I am going to freeze part of it using the sample tubs from Lush, so they contain enough for one mask. Also, there doesn't seem to be an odd smell or any mould growing, so hopefully I should be able to use it up within the week.



I purchased this face mask from Lush about a month ago after trying a sample at home and it seems to be working well. This is recommended for normal to oily skin, which I clearly didn't take into account because I have dry/combination skin. Considering that I got at least 10 masks out of this tub, I think it's well worth the price, although I do wish that Lush would sell them in smaller quantities so that there isn't any left by the time the expiry date comes around. Next time you're in Lush, ask for a sample of the face mask and let me know what you think =)


Next time (after P10P) I'll be purchasing a different fresh face mask. Any suggestions?

    1. Lol, the scent is not too bad! I'd recommend getting a sample of it first (should be enough for two masks), but Lush do other one's too. Another favourite has to be catastrophic cosmetic, which is made with blueberries =)

    1. inshaAllah! It's a shame that they can't ship the fresh face masks because they have to be refridgerated (although it does make sense). I definitely need to use up my Lush products before buying more! =)

  4. I love this mask, it's worked quite well on my skin and the exfoliator in the mask is ever so gentle. Need to get my hands on this mask again1

    1. I love it but it's definitely not right for my dry/combination skin. And it smells good too! (can't have something that smells horrible on my face). Looking at trying the oatifix one next =)
