It’s been a good month for Lush. First, they put Jesus to shame by inventing a bath bomb that turns water into jelly. Then, their ‘Sleepy’ lotion went viral as a ‘miracle product’ for insomniacs, selling out instantly. Now, they’ve got us all excited about the launch of 5 new jelly-based face masks, each of which has been inspired by an outstanding woman within the company.

The jellies are formed from a blend of mineral-rich seaweed, carrageenan extract, fresh fruit and cleansing clays – with each mask also featuring unique added accompaniments, but no synthetic preservatives. Remember those slimy jellies that we all used to play with at school? They feel like that.

Let’s look at the 5 in more detail:

Birth of Venus – This one takes its name from the National Venus Award for British businesswomen, which was recently awarded to Lush Co-founder Rowena Bird. The mask is a rose-petal infused with lavender and fresh sea water to refresh the skin (potentially should’ve been called re-birth of Venus but still)

Bunny Moon – Dedicated to the manager of the Oxford Street Lush Store, Claire Constantine, Bunny Moon incorporates honey, rose and sweet vanilla to calm and soften your skin

FOMO – We all know what it’s like to miss out on perfect skin, so hopefully this mask will banish its namesake. Ideal for those with sensitive skin, FOMO was named is for Lush Co-founder Mo Constantine, and features calamine, kaolin, rose, and neroli.

Just to Clarify – the clue’s in the name: this mask aims to clear pores and exfoliate the skin, with a combination of fresh orange, papaya juice and bamboo stem. It was inspired by Liz Smith, the Manager of Lush UK Manufacturing.

1000 Millihelens – One for the vegans, 1000 Millihelens was inspired by another Lush co-founder, Helen Ambrosen, and is a mix of green tea and hazel leaves with the aim to “soothe and tone”.

To apply: pinch a piece of the jelly and rub your hands together until it becomes a creamy paste, before rubbing it evenly onto your face. After about 10 minutes, rinse it off with warm water. And that’s all there is to it!

The facemasks are £6.95 each and can be picked up in Lush stores or on their website.

We all know there’s absolutely nothing better than anything with a feminist message that also makes you look great. So yes Beyonce, we are ready for this jelly.
