Skincare Update

DSC_0038DSC_0015I find that after a while my skincare products stop working or aren’t as effective so I’m constantly adding new products into my regime to mix things up a little bit. I’ve been absolutely loving LUSH products and my fridge usually consists of more fresh face masks than actual food, does anyone else have this problem?

Just before Christmas I used the last of my Angels On Bare Skin so I popped down to LUSH and had a browse of their cleansers. I initially picked up a charcoal cleanser but soon put that down when I clocked the BΓ»che de NoΓ«l. Obviously Christmas is over now and I’m pretty sure this is no longer available, however, it’s almost the same just with a more Christmassy scent. It’s packed full of natural ingredients or course (with a cheeky hint of booze) and I just love how clean it makes my skin feel.You simply take a small amount of the cleanser, add a drop of water and massage it between your palms until it forms a paste – It is very messy, there’s no way of getting away from that, although it is so worth it! I would 100% recommend Angels on Bare Skin as an alternative if this looks like something you would enjoy.

Another LUSH product I’ve been loving is the Don’t Look At Me fresh face mask. Rich bought me this as a little stocking filler, I think he just chose it because he liked the colour, but it’s so good. It has tiny exfoliating beads in it that leave my skin looking so fresh after a bath. I usually leave masks on for about 30 minutes while I’m having a soak and then wash off with warm water while gently exfoliating.

Well, hello, don’t be shy. I caught you looking at my rich, exfoliating texture, filled with nourishing murumuru butter. I saw you checking out my ground rice. Let me assure you that I’m all substance: they’ve packed me full of zingy lemon juice to tone your complexion, Tunisian neroli to brighten and organic silken tofu to soften you up in all the right ways. A dash of rice syrup and grapefruit oil will have you coming back for more of my scrubby, softening skincare goodness.Β Smooth a rich layer of this vibrant blue mask over the skin and allow it to sink in for 10-15 minutes before gently removing with fresh water.

Finally I’ve been using this Liz Earle Exfoliator a lot since Christmas. It’s not like normal exfoliators as it’s so gentle so can be used more than once a week. It states that it isn’t suitable for sensitive skin and maybe really sensitive skin should steer clear, however, I think it would be absolutely fine. It contains eucalyptus, cocoa butter and jojoba beads that really do bring dull skin back to life – perfect after the Christmas period. And it smells AMAZING too!

Have you tried and of these products? Let me know if you love them as much as I do.

    1. Ohhh you definitely should! My favourite one is cosmetic warrior, it’s such a weird smell but it’s so good at getting rid of spots πŸ™‚ it has garlic in it so might not be everyone’s taste but I love it.

      I hope you enjoy your pamper night x
