Is it just me, or does winter just throw your skincare routine onto its head? I know I need to double down on products which moisturise and nourish skin, but in addition to feeling parched, my sky just sometimes feels all over the place. Which is why I’ve been looking to add as many balancing and nourishing face products into my regime as possible. The most recent of which is the stunning Birth of Venus Mask from skincare-favourite Lush!
A member of Lush’s new Jelly Face Mask lineup; the Birth of Venus promises to tone and soothe skin, thanks to the inclusion of chamomile and sea water in the formula. It’s a great option if you’re looking to balance your skin, and eep it look its best for Christmas Party Season!
I’ve been using the mask once or twice per week, and have just loved the result. After cleansing, I take a little of the jelly in between my fingers, and rub it together until the consistency changes to an almost sticky balm, then I rub it into my face. It smells absolutely incredible – fresh and slightly herbal. Lavender and Rose Absolute work together to leave skin looking and feeling brand new, whilst the seawater in there works as a gentle toner. I tend to leave it on for five to ten minutes depending on how much work my skin needs. Then I use a hot, clean flannel to wipe it all off. Once it’s off, my skin feels absolutely brand new! It’s so soft and smooth, and I’ve also found that the mask works well in reducing redness too!
It’s the perfect quick-fix for winter ravaged skin, and thanks to it’s cute and dinky packaging, I think it would be a perfect stocking-stuffer too!
Lush’s The Birth of Venus Jelly Face Mask is priced at £6.95 and is available here.
