Lush Flopsy Face Wash Jelly might arrive in your Easter Basket this year. But let’s hope not.
So what, is Flopsy anyway? I couldn’t help but think, “Wow, what a fitting name for a crummy product!” And you might be thinking, “….but it just launched how would you know?” Allow me to refresh your memory about the horror show that was Lush Papa Noel Face Jelly which launched with the Lush Holiday/Christmas 2016 Collection.
I mean it’s terribly cute isn’t it? A jelly-like cleanser shaped like a rabbit’s mask. But I digress, I just want to discuss the fact I find it dumb they shape it like a mask. Seriously, though, what do they expect us to place it over our face and run around like Jerome Valeska, not that that isn’t a bad thing, or have our own Hannibal Lecter moment? And by the way, EVEN IF BY SOME CHANCE we’d want to put it on our face and hop around our house wearing it think of the germs and bacteria. Ew…! Like we wear it, put it back in the jar, and what? Clean our faces with it? Why?! Needless to say the need to shape this jelly as a mask doesn’t sit well with me.
Don’t get me wrong I love Lush but their shower jellies have always been a sore spot for me. When they introduced jelly face I had my doubts too but decided to try it and as suspected it was just as bad using the shower jelly. Most of it ends up down the drain and cleansing your body or in this case your face with this product proves fruitless. The idea is interesting, unique, but more of a novelty really. I had problems getting Papa Noel to lather up and even to break down which means chunks of it ended up down my drain.
The new Flopsy Face Wash Jelly is created with seaweed gel, almond oil, and glycerin with zesty lemon and bergamot oils. Depending your skin type those oils, especially lemon, might not be fab picks for you.
Moral of the story?
If you loved Papa Noel and didn’t want to see it go, good news! It’s back, kind of, in a different formula but still the same “great” format.
Personally, though the name for me is terribly fitting, it’s a flopsy.
Do not want.
