The subtitle to this post is “What I thought on stuff I bought: lush edition”, considering that I’ll be showing you the empties that I’ll be bringing back to lush with quickie reviews on them. and then I need your help in choosing what mask to redeem for!

I actually have 6 empty pots and I’m not 100% sure if those clear pots qualify considering that on LUSH’s site it states: “Bring back 5 empty, clean black lush pots…”

If you’re not aware, lush uses a trade-in program:

The black pots we use are made with 100% post-consumer recycled plastic.
Bring back 5 empty, clean black lush pots to your local shop for recycling and we’ll give you a Fresh face Mask, FREE!

I’m taking a chance by bringing in those 2 clear pots but they do state on the lids to bring them in for the trade-in program:

In fact, now that I take a look at the lids a lot more carefully, the only one that doesn’t state the complimentary mask offer is the dream cream even though it’s the same packaging as the Turkish delight shower Smoothie. Hrm, this is all very confusing. I’ll let you know how I fare.

As you may recall, I was a bit of a lush newbie when I hauled all these items (haul post here). and now that I’ve tried a broader range of their products, I will say this: lush is very hit and miss for me. Here are quick notes and ratings about each item that I’m trading in (all photos taken before they were used up ):

Refresher shower Jelly – loved this! A fun item that actually delivers on its function of cleaning and it also lathers up well. 9/10 [shown here]

Dream cream – smelled great but never fully dries down and left my skin sticky. 6/10 [shown here]

Turlish delight shower Smoothie – a substantial letdown. smells bad and a useless product. 2/10 [review here]

Bouncy Bunny shower Jelly – limited edition from last Easter; I was bummed that they did not re-release it this year. Smelled like orange Creamsicle! 9/10 [shown here]

The sacred truth Fresh face Mask – took pleasure in this very much and am actually considering trading in these pots to get this mask again. 8/10 [review here]

Lemony Flutter – a good cuticle butter with a great lemon scent but way too much product in this pot. I couldn’t possibly use up 45g of cuticle butter before it went bad. It’s also quite greasy and messy to use. 6/10

Based on these six items, the average score pertains to 6.67 which isn’t stellar – that’s like a C+ grade at school. Not shown here, and not included in the calculation is the lush cream Eyeshadow in sophisticated that had horrible staying power (reviewed here), which I would score only 3/10… have I somehow managed to get mostly bad lush products, or what?

So, I’m going to trade these empties in and I’d like your input! If you’re familiar with lush Fresh face Masks, what would be your recommendations? I am sensitive to mint oils and citrus ingredients (both of which lush seems to love including in their masks!) so I’d rather stay away from masks consisting of those. I’ve scanned through the ingredients on a lot of of their masks and have narrowed down to theses as possibilities:

Catastrophe Cosmetic

As recommended by Danniijane of A stunning thing blog!
“Blueberry-packed balancer: stop disasters by taking regular care of your skin with our calming, nutrient-rich mask.”

BB Seaweed

“Soothing, smoothing seaweed mask: created especially to care for sensitive skin, this gently scrubby mask is incredibly calming.”

Cup O’ Coffee

“Wakes up worn out complexions: If you’re a sucker for the strong, scrubby, stimulating type, this coffee-filled mask is just the thing to kick-start your day.”

Ooor, just get the The sacred truth again?

“Divine intervention for dry or mature skin: The truth is that fresh ingredients are best for making dry or dull skin look bright and vibrant, so this mask is full of enzymatic papaya to eliminate dryness and antioxidant-rich wheatgrass to give skin a nutritious boost.”

Let me know what your lush Fresh face Mask recommendations are (even if not provided above). Also, what lush products must I try next that would knock my socks off? (Sorry, I don’t take baths so no bath bombs for me) What’s your much-loved lush product?
