Lush Love Lettuce Fresh Face Mask

When it comes to face masks, Lush’s range of Fresh Face Masks are up there in my favourites. Out of their range, The Sacred Truth has been my face mask of choice for quite some time now but after I finished my last pot I decided to go back to one I’ve not used in years – Love Lettuce.

Lush Love Lettuce Fresh Face Mask

When you go to a Lush store you’ll usually see a table in the middle with metal pots of gloop sitting in ice – this is where you’ll find the face masks! They’re on ice to keep them cool as they’re made with 100% natural fresh ingredients and no preservatives, when you take them home you need to keep them refrigerated. They have a use-by date, but if your fridge is cold enough they’ll usually stay good beyond that date. I’ve only ever had one pot go mouldy on me and that was because I forgot about it!

Love Lettuce is the grey-green, gritty-looking mask. It contains: kaolin and fullers earth to deeply cleanse and absorb oil; seaweed, honey, glycerine and almond oil to soften and moisturise; lavender oil to balance oil production (and make it smell nice); and ground almonds and ground almond shell to gently exfoliate. Perhaps the formula has changed since I last tried this mask, or maybe my memory is just not as sharp as I think, but this mask seems a lot more gritty and the lavender is much stronger than I remember!

I use this mask by massaging it onto my cleansed face so that my skin is exfoliated before the ingredients get to work, I leave it on for about 15 minutes (the label says 5-10 minutes but I like to leave masks on for longer), then I massage it off again with warm water, giving my skin a second round of exfoliation. It’s so gentle that my skin can totally handle - in fact, loves - this double whammy of exfoliation, but you don’t have to do this if you don’t want to. Love Lettuce is really effective at leaving your skin feeling super clean and fresh; my skin loves pretty much all of the Lush Fresh Face Masks but this one and The Sacred Truth perform really, REALLY well.

Lush Love Lettuce costs £5.95 for 75g and I tend to get about six applications from one pot, depending on how thickly I apply it. That works out at less than £1 per application which is such good value for money, especially for a product that does actually deliver results. You can also do what I do which is save five of your empty pots and take them back to a Lush store to swap for a free mask.

Let me know if you Love Lettuce – see what I did there! (sigh)

  5. I'm definitely keen to try a LUSH mask and this sounds great, especially from all the ingredients you have listed! Is there one you'd recommend for dull skin? Mine seems to be lacking vitality at the moment. xx

    1. This one would give you a boost as it exfoliates as would BB Seaweed, otherwise The Sacred Truth which has papaya xx

  7. Love lush fresh face masks, they're so lovely! I used to use Love Lettuce a couple of years ago, but as my skin's got drier and more sensitive I now use oatafix which is perfect :) x

  9. I'm addicted to the Lush face masks, they are the best! My fav is Oatifix, I actually never even seen this one is it new? I'm definitely going to try it because I need to give my congested skin some love. The combination between hydrating and exfoliating is right up my alley

    1. Oatifix is great, that one is really good for my fiance's skin. Love Lettuce isn't new, are you in the UK? Perhaps it's a UK only one xx
