A few weeks ago I had my very first facial which was a great experience but it also told me a lot about my skin. Sadly i’ve always been pretty bad with any kind of skincare routine and stuck with it for a week and then stopped doing it. I’m lucky to even properly take off my make up at night. This is why when I headed to Lush’s Oxford Street store face care products were on my mind. I had the time to talk to a sales associate try out a whole host of products and make some choices.
The first thing I bought was an amazing face and body cleanser called ‘Angels on Bare Skin’ which like the name suggests is light and very good for slightly sensitive skin. You only need a tiny bit of the cleanser which you then create into some sort of paste with the aid of some water and lather up all over. For the past three weeks (and counting) I have used this every single night and I am amazed and how smooth my skin in afterwards. The great thing is it takes me literally a few minutes in the evening which is probably why i’ve been able to keep up with it.
I also opted for the ‘Ocean Salt’ exfoliation which again is something I rarely used previously. Because of the harsher texture of this product it’s only recommended to use about once a week so it is a great weekend pamper treat. It’s rough enough to feel like it’s doing something but not so rough that my skin is left sore or red afterwards which is always a bonus. The great thing is the pot is pretty big and you don’t actually need a lot of product so it’s going to last quite a while.
The final scrub I opted for was the ‘Bubblegum Lip Scrub’ which smells incredible, so much so I have to keep stopping myself from eating the little tub. The scrub is made with a caster sugar base mixed with other things which creates a slightly rough scrub to spread over and ever since using it my lips have been really soft and i’m even finding my lipstick sits on my lips better. The fact that it’s bright pink and smells of bubblegum is just an added bonus.
Lush might be well known for their quirky brightly coloured bath bombs but you should make sure you check out their skin care when you’re next in store as there are some amazing products there.
