Hi everyone,

How are you all? ☺♥

Lately, I’ve been trying out new products to help keep my skin soft as the weather begins to get colder. Today I thought that I’d write a review on a relatively new face mask that I’ve been quite impressed with in the short amount of time that I’ve been using it – ‘The Birth of Venus’ jelly face mask by Lush.

‘The Birth of Venus’ Jelly Face Mask

The Lush ‘The Birth of Venus’ Jelly Face Mask is great for toning, soothing and balancing your skin. Fresh sea water tones and refreshes skin, lavender oil calms and rose absolute soothes and balances. Carageenan seaweed gel is intensely softening and will leave skin irresistably soft. To use, simply pinch off a piece of the mask and work to a paste between clean, dry hands. Apply to the face and let it work its magic for 5-10 minutes.

I bought ‘The Birth of Venus’ Jelly Mask for £6.95 at the Oxford Street, London store.


My initial thoughts on the mask were that the texture reminds me of melted marshmallows and once you start to rub it between your hands it the jelly mask starts getting thinner and looks a little like lather. The smell is itself is amazing, as you work it through your hands the smell of the lavender oil and chamomile blue oil becomes more and more prominent.

After smoothing out the jelly mask, I must admit that I found it a little difficult to put on evenly across my face. It was easier to get on my cheeks and forehead, but getting the right amount of consistency on my nose, jaw and near my hairline was what made it harder for me. Once I got the hang of it, I felt more confident getting the mask on – I found it easier to take off smalls chunks, stick it on the different parts of my face and even out with my hands instead of the other way round.

Normally, I like to leave on face masks longer than the recommended amount of time, mainly because I like the face mask to be completely dry before taking it off. So I left the jelly mask on for about 15 minutes, and once the mask had dried completely I washed it off with luke warm water. As I was washing it off, I felt that my skin was visibly more softer and was glowing, and after drying my face my skin was smooth and firm – it’s no wonder they called it ‘The Birth of Venus’.

I would definitely recommend this mask for you all, especially before you sleep! I hope you all enjoyed my review of the ‘The Birth of Venus’ Jelly Face Mask. ‍💆🏽✨
