#48 Daily Lust – Lush Catastrophe Cosmetic Fresh Face Mask

9 Feb

I love a good face mask. I have been using Soap and Glory’s No Clogs Allowed face mask which is incredible but unfortunately it is slowly coming to an end and I want to try something new this time around. Enter Lush and their Fresh Face masks. They have a wide variety of masks targeting different skin types and problems. For me, it would have to be the Catastrophe Cosmetic mask.

Lush Catastrophe Cosmetic Face Mask – £5.95/75g

Firstly, it is full of blueberries, one of my favourite foods ever as well as being great antioxidants. Secondly, because I have been having a bit of trouble with my skin recently and a deep cleansing mask of this would do it the world of good I’m sure. And as you would expect from Lush, it is full of natural ingredients that your skin will love. Have you tried any of Lush’s fresh face masks before? Leave a comment and let me know what you thought!

#42 Lush Tea Tree Water Review

4 Jan

Not so long ago my boyfriend and I went to Cambridge for the weekend, and we had a stroll around the city centre and just happened to stumble into Lush. I have only purchased one product of theirs before (Bubblegum Lip Scrub, I did a full review of it here) so I decided to have a look around. I don’t currently own a toner and I thought my skincare routine needed one so that is what I was looking for. The lady who served me was so friendly and was really helpful as she discussed the differences between the different toner waters they had to offer.

I ended up buying the Tea Tree Water, 250g which is the bigger size. I was going to get a smaller size bottle just to give it a try but they didn’t have any in store so I just bit the bullet and purchased the full size.

I haven’t been using this toner for long but WOW my skin is looking so much better. I had been coming out with a lot more blemishes that I normally would have and this has helped to clear them. The tea tree is an antibacterial, antiseptic and antimicrobial ingredient so it works wonders for oily or spot prone skin. I personally have dry skin and I haven’t found that this product dries my skin out further. After using this toner water, I always moisturise due to me having dry skin.

I use this in the evening after using my Soap and Glory Fab Pore Hot Cloth Cleanser (full review here) and I apply it with a cotton pad or two. You can also just spritz directly onto your face and I sometimes do this in the morning to refresh the skin. This product is so quick and easy to apply so is good for those who are on the go. My skin is looking so much clearer and healthy looking, and like I said before the blemishes have cleared too.

Overall, I would definitely recommend this product and I would also repurchase this item. I also love that Lush place stickers on the products saying who made the product and when it was made. It is such a great touch!

ps. I purchased this product before my spending ban that I mentioned in my New Years Resolutions post. Anything I review from now will be products I purchased before the new year or from my boxes full of products that I haven’t used yet :)

#16 Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub Review

20 Nov

I have never purchased a Lush product before but I have been into a few of their shops. The staff are always really friendly and offer great tips and advice about products. I popped into the Sheffield branch last weekend with a couple of my housemates and ended up buying my first product! I brought the Lip Scrub in Bubblegum. I tested it in the shop and knew I had to buy it.

Firstly, the smell. Oh my god. This smells incredible, it does smell exactly like bubblegum (as the name would suggest!). As a lip scrub, it works a treat. It really does exfoliate the lips, but without being too abrasive and tastes yummy too. Once you have used it your lips feel so smooth. I found myself just licking my lips after I tried it! My lips always get really dry and chapped,especially during winter and this has helped so much. It also contains organic jojoba oil which is super moisturising.

This 25g pot cost £5.25, which does sound quite costly especially as the scrub is pretty much made up of castor sugar with a few added extras. But this really does work, and you don’t have to use a lot when using it. So it will last for a long time, and I have used it everyday since I brought it so I know I will get my moneys worth. I like the packaging too, and it tells you when exactly it was made (13/09/12) and who made it (thanks Lukasz!) which I thought was a nice little touch.

Overall, I am really happy I brought this scrub. My housemate brought it in the Mint flavour, they also had a popcorn flavour. But for me it just had to be bubblegum. I would definitely buy this again, and I am definitely going to look into the other products that Lush make :) Also, they have some great Christmas gifts if you are looking for some presents!
