Happy summertime! The birds are chirping outside my window, the sun is shining, and life feels pretty darn good.
Since it’s summertime and my skin gets a little extra loving from the sun, I thought this would be the perfect time to make a post about some of my favorite products from Lush. I’ve said this many times before, but Lush is a GREAT COMPANY! Seriously, if you haven’t checked them out yet you’re missing out!
So, without further ado, welcome to my little Lush collection!
Love Lettuce: $6.95 (in stores only)
* * *
Love Lettuce was the first ever fresh face mask that I bought from Lush, and it’s perfect for my sensitive/dry/acne prone skin! It’s calming and gentle while still being a scrubby mask. I give it 3 stars out of 5 based on the fact that it doesn’t necessarily create much difference in your skin–it’s just nice to use every once in a while to give your face a little extra lovin’ and attention!
Jackie Oates: $16.95
* * * *
This is a colour supplement that can be used as either a tinted moisturizer, concealer, or foundation. I typically use my Jackie Oates as a foundation because it’s incredibly lightweight and it has wonderful coverage! It never looks cakey and it genuinely feels like I’ve just got a bit of moisturizer on my face. It also gives off a more dewy look, which is great for dry skin that’s in need of hydration! This product earns 4 stars from me because the only negative about it is the price; it’s a little steep for the amount of product you get (0.7 oz) but I just make sure to use it wisely!
Aqua Marina: $12.95-$31.95
* * * *
First of all, this just might be the strangest hygienic product I have ever encountered! I decided to give Aqua Marina a try after reading the positive reviews on it, and I am extremely pleased that I did. This is what’s known as a “cleanser roll” and you essentially just take a chunk out of it and add a bit of water to it, rub it into your hands, and apply it to your face (or anywhere else you desire). The seaweed in it helps to nourish the skin, while the pink extract is useful for sensitive/irritated spots. I’m a huge fan of this cleanser and I’ll definitely be restocking whenever I run out! The only “bad” thing about this product, in my opinion, is the slight smell it gives off–it’s not awful, but it’s certainly not my favorite scent.
* * * * *
Prior to Celestial, I had struggled to find a facial moisturizer that suited my skin type, but now I can’t imagine myself using anything else! Not only does this product smell wonderful (vanilla and almond, mmm) but it leaves my skin feeling soft and hydrated. Since it has almond oil as an ingredient, there is a tinge of “greasiness” that comes along with it, so if your skin is naturally oily I would check out the many other Lush moisturizers that could better suite your skin type. Just a dab of this does the trick after each face wash, and your face will be thanking you in return!
Mask Of Magnaminty: $12.95-$24.95
* * * * *
Minty, minty, minty! This face mask is one that will definitely wake you up and liven up your skin! Much like the Love Lettuce face mask, it is an exfoliant that goes on easy and is a sure treat for your skin. I use this mask once or twice a week because I don’t want it to overdo it (trust me, just a few times a week is plenty) and I always end up feeling rejuvenated and awake. I love everything about this mask, especially the fact that my dull skin comes to life whenever I use it.
Let me know if there are any Lush products that you’ve tried (and love) that I haven’t mentioned here! I hope this summer is one filled with laughter, memories, and happy skin!
