I am a die-hard Rodan + Fields skincare fan. I should be, because I’m a consultant. But I sell it because I love it, not the other way around. No other skincare brand has affected my skin like Rodan has. I almost NEVER get breakouts and the texture of my skin is ridiculously soft and smooth.
My graveyard of miscellaneous skincare products has dwindled to virtually nothing. But I’m still a sucker for trying something new – with little expectation, but just to make sure Rodan + Fields is still at the top of its game. My 12 year old daughter insisted I try Lush’s Love Lettuce face mask.
I will take a step back. My daughter knows more about makeup than I do. When I walk into Ulta with her ( one of my many favorite stores), she can rattle off all brands of makeup in every category from nails to eyebrows, and the highlights of each product until you scream for mercy. She scours YouTube vlogger’s opinions of new products and does her best to purchase new products and try them for herself, playing with new techniques constantly. I often ask her for advice when I am getting ready to go out and need some help ( often).
One spring Saturday, we were strolling along an outdoor mall with no agenda, when she almost shoved me into incoming traffic as she spotted the Lush store in the distance. I had seen Lush’s products before and knew vaguely of their cult following, but I agreed to give the Love Lettuce face mask a try. I despise following trends, but boy, was I happy I did.
I was truly surprised at how soft my face felt after 10 minutes under its cold green clay- like mask. It contains crushed almond for exfoliating dead skin, as well as honey and seaweed to help with oil production and to promote soft skin. It is lightly scented with French lavender for a mild pleasing and calming scent. This mask is everything it claims to be. I just wish it lasted longer than a few weeks. And you have to keep refrigerated due to its fresh ingredients, which is inconvenient. But I do love the idea of fresh and vegetarian ingredients. I will definitely be giving at least some other Lush masks a try to mix in with my Rodan microdermabrasion paste, which is a little less fluff, and a little more serious business.
