Are you ready for this jelly? After the incredible popularity of Lush‘s Shower Jellies it was no suprise when they decided to use a similar formulae to create the new Jelly Masks and Jelly Bombs. Not only are they pleasing to the eye and extremely fun to jiggle, they are also a brand new incredible invention for your skin! Let’s take a closer look the masks and see what they have to offer.
Carrageenan Seaweed is used to achieve the jelly-like base – it’s extremely moisturising, hydrating and gentle to the skin. It’s simple to blend with fresh fruits, natural ingredients and cleansing clays to create masks tailored to suit different skin types and needs. The masks have a light and weightless feel on the skin and leave a noticeable difference as soon as you remove them!
Unlike the fresh face masks there is no need to store these masks on ice or in the fridge to keep them fresh and they have a 4 month shelf life with plenty of time to use the product inside. They are also self preserving and free from synthetic preservatives with enough product in each pot for 5 luxurious uses.
The masks are simple to use, just grab a small piece into the palm of your hand and mix with your fingertips until it breaks down into a cream. The warmth of your hands helps to change the product within a few seconds before your eyes and masks are so simple to apply to the skin. They can be left on for up to 10 minutes then easily removed! As the product settles into the skin the seaweed forms a luxurious layer so it can help to use a warm flannel or cotton pads when removing it.
