Lush Face Masks Review! (Part 1)

Now I’ve had time to extensively try out the three lush masks I bought a while ago, it’s time for my review! I’ll also be reviewing a couple of other lush masks I’ve bought and used in the last few months. I’ve split these reviews into two parts, just because it was getting longer than expected. In this first part, I’ll be talking about Oatifix and Rosy Cheeks.

First up is Oatifix!

Lush says:

This gentle, nourishing mask is made with fresh bananas and illipe butter to moisturise dry skin. Oatmeal, ground almonds and kaolin work together in a mildly exfoliating base to eradicate dead skin, leaving you soft, supple and moisturised.

The Beauty Box With Customisation: You Beauty Box!

My first ever You Beauty Box arrived just last week! Before I show you what was inside, I thought I’d give you all a quick review of the service. I’d like to say here that I’m in no way affiliated with You Magazine or You Beauty Box, so this is just me talking as a regular subscriber.

I’ve had subscription boxes (Birchbox and Glossybox) in the past, but I quickly fell out of love with them once the initial novelty had worn off. While they tried to take into account your basic skin tone, type and hair type, there was little else in the way of customisation, so I kept getting things that I had no interest in. The amount of perfumes and silicone-based hair products that went straight in the bin was bother disappointing and wasteful, so I cancelled my subscriptions.Continue reading

L’Oreal Paris Pure Clay Glow Scrub Review

Today I’ll be reviewing the new L’Oreal Pure Clay Glow Scrub. I picked this up in Superdrug while on its introductory offer, priced at £3.99. The regular RRP is £5.99. Typically I prefer to use chemical exfoliation, but I’ve been wanting to incorporate the occasional physical exfoliant too. Scrubs are really satisfying and I like the super-smooth feeling you tend to get afterwards. I thought the clay would be a nice bonus and that it would possibly double as a quick clay mask too. I chose the red ‘glow’ scrub as brightening up my skin and having a nice smooth base for makeup is my main skincare goal right now.

My Top Skincare Picks

Today I’m going to be talking about my top skincare products. These are things that I’ve been using for quite a time now, and that I see no reason to try and replace (even though I’m usually the type of person to always want to try new products!) because they serve me so well. Naturally, what works for me may not work for you, so bear that in mind while reading this list.

For reference, my skin is combination, often dehydrated, and very acne prone.Continue reading
