Top 5 Lush Favourites :)

Saturday, December 19, 2015

Hey beautiful girls!!

I've been busy lately with a job transition in which I was a bit stressed out, trying to adjust to the new culture and the super abundant work load that I wasn't used to it! My previous job was so much more relaxing.

Although it's been really stressful in the beginning, I finally get the hang of it! Thank God!
I also learned a lot from my current position so putting my complaints aside, I am grateful for my job!

Having said that, my skin was really awful in the past few weeks due to stress. It looked a bit dull and grey! I quickly had to find new remedies to get my glow back!

And thank God for Lush! I can't stress it enough how much I love them! Their staff are amazingly helpful and super nice. They always know what to recommend to me a product for whatever skin conditions I may have! It is also super affordable considering its quality and how fresh and organic their products are! No wonder their stores are always jam packed!

Today I want to share with you guys my current top 5 Lush products!

A little bit of background about my skin, I have a combination skin, dry around the nose and cheeks, oily around the T zone. My skin is also a bit sensitive with eczema. I have problems with blackheads around my nose and my pores are a bit large!

1. Let the good times roll cleanser - $17.50

This is DA BEST cleanser I ever tried so far! First off, I LOVE the smell!! Oh gosh... It smells like banana pancakes topped with caramel popcorn! I use it everyday, once at night, to exfoliate my skin.  The grit in it is gentle enough to exfoliate your skin without drying it out. It leaves my skin feeling superb clean, soft and smooth; perfect for my combination and sensitive skin! I always look forward to cleaning my face with this since I got it. It has replaced my Cetaphil cleanser for sure!

2. Enzymion - $34.95

I don't really like applying thick creams on my face including sunscreen, however we all know how important it is to have an adequate sun protection everyday! So I was really happy to find a good sunscreen that is not heavy on my skin, it's my biore gel sunscreen. The only drawback is, it is drying my skin out as it is alcohol based. It's only natural I went on a hunt to find a good moisturiser that will keep my skin moist without feeling greasy.
Enzymion fits the bill perfectly! It is very light and smells citrusy. The cream sinks in very quickly on your skin without leaving you with that heavy feeling. I've been using it religiously since I got it, I can layer my sunscreen on top of it during the day and after my serum at night.
If you love wearing make-up, you can also layer it underneath and trust me you won't feel greasy at all.

3. Ro's Argan body conditioner  - $32.95

I got this as a gift and at first I was using it as a lotion! Silly me, I didn't read the instructions carefully. You are supposed to use it as how you use conditioner for your hair but on your body! There are two ways of using it, you leave it on for a few minutes after your regular body wash and rinse it off or you can slather it on your damp body and leave it on, depending on your preference! I prefer the second one so that my skin can absorb all the benefits from it. This will leave your skin extra smooth and smells heavenly! My boyfriend loves this smell on me so much!

4. Catastrophe cosmetic fresh face mask - $13.95

I went to the shop asking for recommendations for my large pores and the lady suggested me this blueberry mask! I don't know how effective this mask for my problem skin, but I love how soothing and cooling this mask is. It has no overpowering smell, the colour is slightly blue and best kept in the fridge! The only downside is how short its shelf life is :(

5. The olive branch shower gel - $ 7.95

I also got this in a gift box and I love how it smells, you can use it on your hair and body! I only use it on my body though! I am not great at describing scents, it has that woody scent that is very sweet. It also leaves your skin soft and supple after you shower.

I hope you enjoyed my post and see you on my next one :D
