New Lush Purchases

Working in the City Centre makes shopping way too hard to resist. So on my lunch break last week I decided to pop into Lush and pick up a couple of treats. After a very long week, I picked up the perfect products to help me unwind.

Mask of Magnaminty.

I really wanted to pick up a new face mask, but as most of their masks have to be kept in the fridge I didn’t think it would last in my bag all day. Luckily I found this mask which is self-preserving, which means it doesn’t need to be kept in the fridge which is amazing!

I used to use this mask all of the time, but for some reason I have recently forgotten how good it is. The mask can be used on both your face and body, and is great for battling breakouts. I also love how long these little pots last, as you get plenty of uses out of it.

The peppermint in this mask leaves the most incredible feeling on your face. It’s also great if you’re looking for something to get you ready for the day, then this mask is a must.

Big Blue Bath Bomb.

This is one my favourite bath bombs from Lush. Not only does it turn your bath bright blue, but it is the perfect product to leave you feeling relaxed and refreshed.

This bath bomb contains lavender, so as somebody who doesn’t tend to like the scent I was pleasantly surprised with this one. The lemon and lavender scents complement each other beautifully. 

One thing to note about this bath bomb is that it contains seaweed that softens when placed in the warm bath. I personally love this as it makes you feel like you have been transported to the sea.

 

These two products work so well together and they are perfect to help you wind down after a long day at work.  I can’t wait to stock up on more Lush products ready for Christmas!

Lush Snow Fairy Collection

It’s that time of year again, which only means one thing – Lush has their Christmas stock out on the shelves!

Every Christmas I purchase at least one product from the Snow Fairy collection. I was beyond excited to find that my boyfriend had purchased both the Snow Fairy Shower Gel and Fairy Dust Dusting Powder for me this weekend. If you haven’t tried these products out, I would definitely recommend you give them a go, the scent is incredible!

Snow Fairy – £7.95 250g

I can honestly say that Snow Fairy is the best shower gel I have ever used. The Bubblegum and Candyfloss scent leaves your skin smelling and feeling beautiful all day long.
It brightens up any day and is perfect for a relaxing bath.

Fairy Dust – £7.50 70g

Fairy Dust Dusting Powder matches perfectly with Snow Fairy Shower Gel, or is great on it’s own for a toned down scent. The glittery shade of the powder makes the product great as a highlighter and is perfect for dusting your whole body if you want to leave your body smelling gorgeous all day.

Another tip for this product is to dust it on your bed sheets as it leaves the scent on your sheets until you next clean them. If you’re as obsessed with the scent as I am, it’s definitely worth trying out.

I love both of these products and recommend that everybody tried them out – the only bad thing I can say about them is that I wish they were sold all year round!

My Top Five Skincare Products

5skin

I have decided to pick my top five skincare products and explain to you guys why I love them. I am such a hoarder when it comes to skincare products, but these are five products I swear by.

The first item I chose is not really a skincare product as such, but my Magnitone Barefaced! Daily Face Brush is one of the best things I have ever used!
The item itself is £70, which may seem a little pricey, but you should definitely think of it as an investment. This may sound exaggerated, but after just one use of this brush, my skin felt silky smooth. After a few weeks of using this my blemishes have decreased significantly and I don’t think I could ever live without it.

The best part about this product is that it’s so easy to use! I use mine everyday in the shower and it has a timer which tells you when it’s time to move on to the next section of your face. It’s so easy you could clean your face in under a minute.

The second product I chose is my Kleem Organics Vitamin C Serum. My first attraction to this product was definitely the citrus scent it has. I personally love the scent and having my skin constantly smell this way is a dream. I use this product everyday before applying my moisturiser and the fact that you can instantly feel your skin tightening is amazing. My pores have definitely reduced a lot since using it.

The main reason why I love this product is the fact that it protects your skin from issues such as environmental pollution. As I live in a busy city, this is definitely very important to me. Again this is definitely a product worth investing in.

The next product I have chosen is Mask of Magnamity face and body mask by Lush. I have tried way too many face masks and I am so happy to have finally found one I can stick with. I use this mask on my face at least one a week and it is perfect for a pamper night.

Once it starts to dry, this mask leaves an amazing tingly feeling on your skin which is one of the main reasons why I love using it. My skin is quite sensitive to harsh products, but every product I have tried from Lush agrees with me which is perfect. If you’re looking for a product to help sort out problematic skin, I would definitely recommend you try this product.

The fourth product I chose is the Yves Saint Laurent Touche Éclat Blur PrimerI have expressed my love for this primer before and you can read why I adore it so much here. If you’re looking to try out a new Primer I would definitely give this one a shot.

The last product I chose is an all time favourite. The Dove Summer Glow Nourishing Lotion is a self-tanner which I always seem to go back to. If you’re looking for a natural glow to your skin, this lotion is definitely what you need. The price of this is very reasonable and I always find it on offer at my local drugstore or supermarket.

Unlike many other self-tan lotions I have used, this product dries pretty quickly so you don’t have to stand around for ages waiting for it to set. It also leaves your skin feeling silky smooth which is an added bonus!
Dove is a brand I can always rely on and I feel like I will continue to use this product forever!
