Night in with Love Lettuce

This past week amongst stressful organisational duties and the reality of signing up to help out at lots of things, I have discovered and unused Lush Love Lettuce facemask in my fridge! How it went unnoticed and forgotten I'm unsure, but due to its impending expiry date (due to the 100% natural ingredients they use in all their products) I have found myself multiple times sitting down in the evenings with this slapped on, trying to relax.
And I took a few snaps.

I absolutely adore love Lettuce - mainly because of it being bright green!! But it also smells good (lavender-scented) unlike many other Lush face masks which may do your skin wonders but are a bit iffy with their scent choice.
The last two photos are after it has dried. Love Lettuce is quite a speedy drier, but is best left for 20 minutes or half an hour or so (until the point when you cannot move your face, at all.) It then takes on the appearance of mushy peas on your face! mmm

Guide to removing Love Lettuce Face Mask:
1. Locate a flannel
2. Dampen your flannel in warm water
3. Wring it out
4. Press flannel against section of face, 
and push whilst moving downwards - 
effectively dragging the facemask off your face

Why? Because filling a basin with water and washing it off is way more time consuming, and ultimately messy. This is an easy surprisingly quick and effective way of removing your facemask where the flannel gets greener than you! Hooray

If you are having a busy day, week or even month, remember to take some time out and pamper yourself. Little things can make big differences to your psyche!
