LUSH recently launched their new Jelly Face Masks and I raced down to my local LUSH to pick one up. There are 4 available: The Birth of Venus, Bunny Moon, FOMO and Just To Clarify. I was immediately drawn to The Birth of Venus because 1. I am a sucker for the colour and 2. It had me at “sea water and fresh rose”.
Each mask features 60g of product and retails for $13.95 CAD. NOTE: The 5 empty black pots for 1 free mask DOES NOT apply to these jelly masks. I tried cashing in my 5 empties and failed.
“When you want to feel as gorgeous as a goddess (or god), treat yourself to this skin-balancing masterpiece. Mineral-rich fresh sea water tones and refreshes skin, as lavender oil and a fresh rose infusion calm irritation and soothe redness. All of it’s whipped up in an intensely softening carrageenan base for buttery smooth skin. Seashell not included.”
This mask is self-preserving meaning it doesn’t require refrigeration. It has a 5 month shelf-life.

HOW TO USE:
Pinch off some jelly, work between dry hands to form a paste and apply on the skin. Leave on for 10 minutes, then rinse clean.
One pinch, blended into the palm of your hand, will cover your entire face. This mask was cooling and rinsed away clean after 10 minutes. My skin felt fresh and clean afterwards but the biggest change was the following day. I woke up to a huge reduction in my hypepigmentation. It was shocking. I have been using azelaic acid for months trying to fade PIH and this did more in 10 minutes than azelaic ever did! Plus my skin was baby smooth. This is a huge hit for me and I will repurchase.
DIG IT OR DUMP IT:
DIG IT ! I am in love with this THE BIRTH OF VENUS jelly mask. It smells great, makes my skin glow and has worked wonders on reducing post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. It doesn’t cause me to breakout and for a change, it is paraben free: YAAAY LUSH!
