I got a sample of this when I was in London!
What it’s supposed to do:
Refreshing herbs and fruit juice are blended with warming Ayurvedic herbs and spices. With almonds to polish and moisturising honey, this blend leaves the skin vibrant and re-visited.
Price: 6.45 GBP ($10) for 75 g (in London), 1650 yen ($18.50) for 50 g in Japan
Scent: (I strongly suggest you smell this in the store before buying it since scent is a personal preference and Lush products tend to smell very strongly)
This products smells like honey and herbs. I liked it, but I can understand why people wouldn’t!
- The almond bits left my skin feeling EXTREMELY smooth!
- The sample was VERY generous! I used it almost 10 times!
- It’s a little bit hard to apply to my face, but it’s fine when I added a bit of water!
- more than twice as expensive in Japan as in London (about 14 cents/g in London vs 38 cents/g in Japan… wow, with the current exchange rate, it’s almost 3 times more expensive in Japan!!!!!)
- Like all Lush Fresh Face Masks, this needs to be used up within 3 weeks or it will go bad
- Like all Lush Fresh Face Masks, this is not sold on the Lush USA website due to the expiration date
That really summed up how I feel about this product! I loved it, I loved how it smelled, I loved how it made my skin feel, but I would not buy it in Japan because it is just so much more expensive here. I’m not willing to spend $20 on an exfoliator when I can get something almost as good for half the price!
I blogged about this before, but I wish that Lush sold their Fresh Face Masks in smaller containers. The 75g packages that I found in London were too big for me to use up in 3 weeks (I did kind of find a way around this which I will blog about soon!). Seriously, this sample size was exactly right for me to use up in 3 weeks!
I’ll leave you with a scary pic of me!
What is your favorite exfoliator?
