Beauty | Lush Skincare Haul
So it’s no secret that my love for Lush is eternal. Ever since I received one of their Christmas gift boxes a couple of years back I’ve been hooked – the smell, the appearance, the ethos; they’ve got everything down to a T. Every couple of months I like to treat myself to a couple of new products from their skin care range to see how I get on with them. Lately I’ve been making my way through their fresh face masks which so far have been pretty impressive.
Ocean Salt | Face & Body Scrub
When I picked this up it seemed to be exactly what I was looking for. Promising to brighten and soften my skin, I thought I had to give this a go. I’ve been looking for a decent face scrub for a while now, one that wouldn’t rip my face to shreds and make it blotchy from the harsh exfoliating beads. Lush skin care is always so kind to the skin and I was completely sold when I took a peek inside the tub to discover it was a white and blue swirled formula that resembled the ocean – sweeeet! Out of the three products I bought, I was most excited about trying this little beaut out and I wasn’t disappointed. The salt granules are pretty chunky so you can really feel them cleansing your skin and giving it a good ole’ clean! The fragrance was an added bonus creating an infusion of zesty limes and a dose of cool, fresh air. When I washed the scrub off I felt instantly revived and ready to start my day – my skin was lovely and soft (despite having a couple of inflamed spots) and it was noticeably brighter.
Cosmetic Warrior | Fresh Face Mask
My main reason for this purchase was to see if it could help banish some of my embarrassing blemishes. Despite leaving my teenage years behind a couple of years ago, it seems as though my skin doesn’t want to grow up just yet so it continues to be a pain in my arse. Cosmetic Warrior aims to gently combat spots and sooth troubled skin. The slightly bitty formula feels surprising soft on the skin yet applies a little on the lumpy side. After leaving it on the recommended 15 minutes, I washed it off to find my face felt clean and a little tighter than before. Whilst my angry spots were still visible, the redness had reduced which is great considering it was my first application – I’m hoping by using this mask on a regular basis my skin will clear up completely (a girl can dream, right?!).
Charity Pot | Hand & Body Lotion
Whilst this trip was primarily to pick another fresh face mask and to try out one of their face scrubs, I made a last minute decision to purchase a charity pot of hand cream which was sitting by the till as I waiting in line. Although it took me a while to get the bloody lid off, the cream is thick and luxurious – a little definitely goes a long way! Whilst my hands felt instantly softer than before, I was a little put off by the smell which reminded me old women (I don’t mean to offend!). I probably wouldn’t buy this product again due to the smell, however I’d love to try the other freagrances they have available.
