WHAT'S IN: LUSH COSMETICS
I’m the type of girl where I'm happy with papaya soap for my face. Most of the times, I don’t even remove my makeup when I go to bed. Ew, right? but I'm sure I'm not the only one. It came to a point where I stare at the mirror and check my old photos, and be like “what happened to my face?”. Thank God I don’t get pimples that quick, or not even 2 zits at the same time. But reality hits me; I'm getting older and my skin is not getting younger. I have to take care of it!
That’s why LUSH came on the right time. It was lush at first sight! I am currently doing a routine of lush wash and results are showing already after a week of using it. What I love about this is their products contain all natural and fresh ingredients.
To start off with Angels On Bare Skin. This is a cleanser that evens out skin tone and improves the health and appearance of your skin giving it a natural healthy glow.
I was my face with warm water and gently massage the cleanser for 10 minutes giving it time to detoxify my skin and cleanse my pores. I’m not sure if I'm happy with the picture below because the cleanser went to my nostrils looking like a snout but yes, this is how it looks like on the skin.
Featured Ingredient: Ground Almonds - Ground almonds are highly effective as they are gently exfoliating. They 'polish' the skin, improving skin tone and color. Ground almonds are in one of our best-selling products, Angels On Bare Skin. This product is very often the number one best seller in Japan. (via Lush MENA)
After rinsing off with warm water, I use Love Lettuce face mask next. This helps exfoliate skin, clearing away dead skin and softens it at the same time. Since the skin was detoxified by the cleanser, the mask gives it a boost to brighten up the face.
Featured Ingredient: Fullers Earth Textile workers, or fullers as they were once called, would clean raw wool by kneading it in a mixture of water and fine earth. The ‘earth’ consisted of a number of clays. This process cleaned the fibers by absorbing dirt, oil, and other contaminants.Modern fuller’s earth is fine-grained, crumbly and has higher water content.Fuller’s earth is used industrially for a whole range of processes from refining vegetable oil to the manufacture of kitty litter. (via Lush MENA)
To finish it off, I use Eau Roma Water toner. This product might look underrated and not helpful but it actually tightens the skin after applying cleansers and mask. I noticed that my skin is more fuller when I spray it on plus it can be used for removing traces of face products.
Just like washing the face, this toner water can be used at any time of the day as a facial refresher or to cool the face. In my case, perfect; because I go to meetings every day.
Featured Ingredient: Rose Water We use the finest rose absolute (Rosa damascena) and disperse it in water. The rose water is made in small batches and added to our fresh handmade products at the factory. It helps to retain moisture and is mildly astringent, which helps to even skin tone and improve its appearance. These qualities make it an excellent ingredient for a shaving cream and for any product aimed at calming skin.
Am I addicted to Lush yet? Yes, I am. I actually have a hair conditioner, lip balm, and hand scrubs to use and review. To be honest, their products are costly compared to other skin care but it’s all worth it. It’s not like you can only use it for a week or two. The amount on each container could last for about a month and a half depending on usage. I was informed to keep all of them, because, in every 5 containers, I get a free facial mask. How cool is that!
Lush is against animal testing. "The founders of Lush have a history of being involved in the movement against animal testing that stretches back to the late 70s. Lush was therefore founded on very strict No Animal Testing policies and values. The company has campaigned widely on animal issues throughout its existence and is one of the companies’ core values."
So if you’re still not sure about Lush, I don’t know what else to say.
I hope you like this post and helped you out in some way if you’re looking for the perfect skincare. If you are a lush user, tell me what your favorites are and why! I would really love to try your recommendations. :) If you haven’t got hold of Lush yet, I suggest you visit their online store and different branches here in the UAE right about now or as soon as possible!
