Over the past week or so, my skin has just felt a bit blah. I think it was a combination of hormones, stress and just being busy, but the result was just not feeling 100%. It’s not a fun feeling, and I hate having to worry about my skin when I have to go to work meetings and events, so Lush’s new Rudolph Jelly Face Mask couldn’t have come at a better time!
Before I even get started on how much I love the mask (and really, I do) I am absolutely in love with how it looks. Yes, in my photos it looks quite plain, but it comes complete with the cutest little red jelly nose, and the effect is just adorable. I, however managed to drop the nose on the ground (I take my photos outside for the best light) and the effect was ruined somewhat, but top marks to Lush for creativity!
The mask itself is pretty genius too! Designed to combat all the damage winter wreaks on skin (think dryness, dullness and acne) Ruldoph gets to work on them all. I’ve been using the mask every couple of nights, and it’s truly dreamy. After cleansing, I apply a few finger-fulls of the mask when my skin is still damp, making sure to massage it all into an even covering.
It smells absolutely divine – it’s a real hot-chocolate scent, thanks to the cocoa powder in the formula which softens skin, whilst also having antioxidant properties. There’s also a hint of orange in there, thanks to a Meadowsweet and Orange Peel infusion which tone and soothe skin, as well as fresh orange juice which cleanses and rejuvenates skin. There’s also the all-important rhassoul mud which effectively cleanses skin. Honestly, the mask smells good enough to eat – and the difference it’s made in my skin is impressive. I wash it off after 10-15 minutes, and my skin feels so soft and smooth afterwards – it feels like I’ve pressed a reset button!
