5 Pots For 1 Free Mask

Recently I have been going to LUSH stores A LOT. At least more than I do once my semester starts. Each time I have been returning around 5-6 empty black pots for a free face mask! LUSH started this system to use pots that are post customer recycled plastic! So when you return pots, they recycle and reuse them.

Here are all the LUSH fresh face masks you can chose from (the picture is a bit small, I know):

I have tried a few of the LUSh face masks. Some of my favorites are Cupcake, Brazed Honey and Love Lettuce. I actually have gotten 3 of the masks with the return 5 pots for free mask deal recently. The three I picked out were Brazed Honey, Cupcake and Catastrophe Cosmetic.

  • Brazed Honey – I think this is the most gentle and simple face mask that LUSH offers. The smell is not to strong and the texture is smooth. The fresh ingredients in this mask are eggs, honey, lime oil, ground almonds, Kaolin clay and probably much much more.
  • Cupcake – This is definitely one of the most popular masks. It is sometimes hard to find this one in stock at stores. This is for skin that is more acne prone. The fresh ingredients in this mask are cocoa, mint, vanilla absolute, spearmint oil, Rhassoul mud and much more. When using this mask, you feel like your spreading mint chocolate icing all over your face!
  • Catastrophe Cosmetic – This is another popular face mask from LUSH. This one is especially nice in the summer months. The fresh ingredients in this mask are blueberries, calamine, rose absolute, chamomile blue oil and more. This mask is especially made for people with sensitive skin.

Soon, I will be reviewing all three of the detailed masks above. If you would like to purchase a mask or return your pots for one, you cannot order them online but only find them in stores. This is because the masks are made super fresh and have an expiration date about two-three weeks after they are bought. Also, you should keep your mask in the fridge to make sure it stays nice and fresh!

Lilly Pulitzer Social Media Favorites

As a Southern Bell, I am a huge fan of the tropical and colorful prints Lilly Pulitzer creates. I especially love all of the prints which make you want to bathe in the sun, attend a party on the beach or make you want to travel through all of the Florida Keys.

Since my love for Lilly is growing and I appreciate it more (I currently am trying to survive a frigid winter), I have started to follow Lilly Pulitzer on almost every social media outlet. I picked three of my favorite posts in the last year to share with y’all!

1. The Bow Tie Post: I really like this post and think it stands out from the rest because it talks about BOY Lilly. Who knew?! It makes sense that Lilly has a hard time relating to the male crowd because they create very feminine prints. But it was a joy to see the company posting about bow ties for once!

2. The Zodiac Post: This is one of my favorite Lilly posts because… I am a Leo and really enjoy reading my horoscope! Another factor that makes this post interesting is the line “We’re celebrating Leo!” because it makes you feel important and special. It was also a good move to make a Leo print that relates with all of the “Leo’s” out there. It will be interesting to see if Lilly makes prints and creates a horoscope for all of the Zodiac signs.

3. Sweater Weather Post: This post probably relates to a lot of people right now because of the beginning of the winter and holiday seasons. This is a very interactive posts because it shows the results of a previous contest. Although only a few letters are available, it was important for Lilly to note that more letters will be added and another competition will be held. (I actually just ordered the “A” sweater for myself!)
