The other day, my husband surprised me with a bag full of LUSH goodies! Some things were old favorites like the Sultana of Soap (read about it here) and Ro’s Argan Body Conditioner (review). But, there were also three newbies to try: LUSH Neon Love Soap, LUSH Ayesha Fresh Face Mask ($6.95), and LUSH BB Seaweed Fresh Face Mask ($6.95). With the goodies, he also brought some bad news – LUSH got rid of one of my other favorites, Alkmaar soap! I’m sure I’ll find something else to replace.
LUSH Neon Love Soap
When my husband handed me my bag of LUSH goodies, he said “There’s soap in there to help moisturize your skin. It has yogurt in it.” The LUSH Neon Love Soap was created especially for Valentine’s Day. It includes fresh passion fruit to cleanse, and soya yogurt to nourish.
It smells really nice; it’s a combination of fruity and citrus if that makes sense. Neon Love soap lathers well, too. The lather feels creamy and smooth. My skin, after using it did not feel dry. If you look closely enough you’re able to see the fig seeds, which softly exfoliate your skin.

LUSH Ayesha Fresh Face Mask
I have no clue why my husband picked this up for me because it’s clearly for mature skin, and people with wrinkles. I am not even thirty yet! Maybe the LUSH salesperson didn’t explain that to him. I definitely do not have wrinkles, but, maybe this mask can be used as a preventive measure? We’ll see. Since it has ingredients to brighten dull spots and help hydrate skin, it wouldn’t hurt me to use it.
“Ayesha is a blend of tightening and toning ingredients to refresh tired-looking skin.” Ayesha Fresh Face Mask contains Vitamin C-rich kiwi, which helps brighten dull spots, asparagus to aid in nourishing and to absorb excess oils, and honey to hydrate the skin. “This fresh mask is named after the fictional priestess who discovered the secret to immortality – ten minutes with it on and you’ll see why! Dull, tired and mature skin transforms for a bright, youthful glow.” – LUSH

LUSH BB Seaweed Fresh Face Mask
The LUSH BB Seaweed Fresh Face Mask is a mask created for people with sensitive skin. Lately, any and everything has been breaking me out. My husband pays attention! Since receiving this mask, I’ve used it once. After using it, my skin felt smooth for a few days, moisturized, and not tight. It rinsed clean, too, and I had no irritation afterward.
The BB Seaweed Fresh Face Mask contains locally-harvested, nutrient-rich seaweed to help nourish the skin. Finely ground almonds help to gently exfoliate the skin leaving it nice and smooth. There’s also aloe vera gel and rose absolute which aid in calming and soothing sensitive spots, as well as honey and olive oil to moisturize.

I’m happy with all of the LUSH items that I received, especially the LUSH Fresh Face Masks because I’ve wanted to try a few of them for some time now. After I use these up, I will trade in my canisters and try another mask.
