Lush has been a love of mine since the very early days of my obsession with beauty. Their stores are well and truly a beauty lover’s playground. I used to spend endless hours in there trying everything and buying more bath bombs than any one person needs. Back in the day, there were also a couple of Lush products in my skincare routine that I loved, namely the Breath of Fresh Air Toner and the Lemony Flutter Cuticle Moisturiser. But it’s admittedly been a while since I’ve checked out the Lush skincare range. There’s something refreshing about being able to read an ingredients list without feeling confused.
Luckily, I got to celebrate Bloggers United’s second birthday at Lush a little while back and had a bit of time to try everything out. We were all able to take one thing home free of charge but I ended up buying another bit too, excited to try out a little more of the range. Funnily enough, both of the bits I grabbed were recommendations for my lovely friend, Sophia, who seems to know her stuff when it comes to the Lush skincare range.
The range of moisturisers at Lush is more than a little overwhelming. I read all the info on the tubs and this one said that it was wonderful for oily skin or on T-zones so of course, I was sold. The name had me envisaging a lightweight, fuss-free moisturiser that I could slap on in the morning in the hopes of it keeping my oily t-zone in check. And it definitely delivered. It slotted perfectly into my morning routine. I’ve been really enjoying how nourishing this one feels on the skin while still being so lightweight, it provides lasting hydration and leaves my skin feeling really soft and ready for makeup, if I’m wearing any that day. I’m not normally a fan of lavender scents but this one is fairly subtle, so didn’t bother me.
I hear so much about the Mask of Magnaminty so I was excited to give it a try. I was always put off by it’s use-by date but now it’s self-preserving – awesome. Mask of Magnaminty is, as the name suggests, a minty face mask which cleans, calms and clears the skin. On the skin, it feels really comfortable and soothing. Often after taking face masks off, my skin looks a little red, but this left my skin glowing and bright. It does a great job of calming down angry spots but I’m not sure it shortens the lifespan so much. Still, I can definitely understand the hype. I think this is going to become a bit of a mainstay in my bathroom. If you need a do-it-all kinda mask for your collection, this is definitely a top recommendation for me, now!
