Review: Lush Love Lettuce Face Mask

I bought this late August with five empty Lush pots that I had built up (if you're not a Lush fanatic - five empty Lush pots = free facemask!). I had already tried Cosmetic Warrior and Cupcake but before declaring the latter my favourite face mask of all time I wanted to try the entire range, just to make sure. My skin is really bad and I want to make sure I never miss out on a brilliant product. I picked this up believing that it was the final facemask of the collection suited for oily skin but have since realise that Catastrophe Cosmetic would also suit, so there is one more to try before deciding on my fav. 

First off, like a lot of fresh toiletries, it looks a little disgusting. It's green and has exfoliants in it and whilst it doesn't have a strong scent, lettuce hardly drums up connotations of luxury. So yes, the appearance put me off a bit. But if it does the job then it shouldn't matter if it is green and lumpy. 

Application wise I found that a thin layer would dry more easily than a thick layer. If you want to wait for a really thick layer to dry upon your skin then you'll be there are while. So if you do purchase it - then a thin layer works better. 

Immediately after using this mask my skin did feel refreshed and really clean. And also soft. So it was good if I was heading somewhere special the next day. Or would make a good mask to pamper myself with before going out (I learnt, on the contrary, years ago that a mask will bring dirt to the surface so don't do it the night of a big date - this mask felt different). 

However, overall I didn't notice any long term improvements to my skin. I still got new spots and my blackheads didn't seem to get smaller. I have really stubborn skin that would still be more suited to a fourteen year old so I'm sometimes not the best person to review products from the 'average' person perspective but if you're like me and have oily skin then I'm not going to thoroughly recommend this product. I know that Hayley of Water Painted Dreams loves the stuff so it obviously works for some people, but for my spotty skin it's looking like Cupcake it still the magical product that kept the spots at bay! I imagine if you have normal skin that you still want to pamper each week then this might well just be the mask for you!

I also want to apologise for all my product reviews recently being very 'not good for oily skin but could still be good for other skin types'. It's just my honest opinion for a lot of the products I've been trying recently. Hopefully I'll find a product to rave about soon!

How I Looked: Primark Interview Outfit

Playsuit: Primark
Tights: H&M
Shoes: Primark (old)
Nails: Zoya

As said recently I landed myself my first graduate job and for anyone wondering this is the outfit I wore to said interview. I'm not really a plain black pencil skirt and white shirt type of gal (what fashion blogger is?) so I decided to really rack through the shops to see what I could find. I already had my outfit from my other interview but decided to pick up something a bit plainer because my previous interview had been for a creative media agency and this one was for a company doing in-house marketing who didn't comes across as so quirky. So I matched my outfit to suit. 

This time I also went for thicker tights as the lengths of the playsuit is a bit risky for an interview or office. I think New Look are good for sheer tights but then H&M are best for thick winter tights that are practically leggings. Neither brand has been bad for ladders or ripping in my experience. 

The shoes are the same as the last interview though and these generally are my go-to smart shoes though they were bought pre-vegetarian days so are leather and I'm looking for some new smart got-to shoes if anyone has any ideas?
