Face Masks Review! | Superdrug & Lush

Nothing calls summer relaxation like face masks. I bought quite a few from Boots, Superdrug and Lush but thought I’d share my thoughts on Superdrug’s own brand of face masks (Orange and black lava & sugar and spice) and Love Lettuce by Lush:

Superdrug’s own masks: I tried two of their masks – the orange and black lava mask and IMG_20170628_120817the sugar and spice self heating masks. Both left my skin feeling extremely soft even without moisturiser. The first one (orange and black lava) gave me an uncomfortable burning sensation for a few minutes and then stopped, and so I wouldn’t personally use that one again but it did have a great smell and I liked how it hardened into a clay consistency after a few minutes as when washing it off it felt very refreshing and my skin felt exfoliated. I definitely preferred and really loved the sugar and spice self heating mask. It was more of a sticky, jelly like texture with an amazing smell of caramel and Mediterranean clay as well as being of a mild caramel colour. I absolutely love the self heating element; it was one of those masks you could easily fall asleep in. I kept it on comfortably for 15 minutes and to be honest did not want to take it off! It left my skin extremely soft and smooth!

Lush: Love Lettuce – I can never decide which mask to buy from Lush so tried this one after a sales assistant recommended it. It has quite a rough texture with a very earthy smell which I really liked as a change from the more fruity/artificial smelling facial masks out there! I kept it on for 15 minutes without any discomfort and the whole way through it felt highly refreshing and I had that feeling of it really working on my face. After removing it the effects were amazing – it was a strong replacement for an exfoliator and left me with very radiant and healthy looking skin. Can’t go wrong with Lush!

LUSH REVIEW: Old Father Time Soap!

Today’s post will be on the Old Father Time soap which I bought on the Boxing Day sales where some soaps were half price and so this one cost around ¬£2.50 for about 150g – total bargain! It is one of their Christmas

specials for this year and it definitely is one of the most beautiful and coolest soaps from the few I’ve purchased from Lush in the past year, and so I have been using since I purchased it. It’s hard to keep away from Lush!

Price: £3.50/100g РA bargain for what it offers!

For a start, although this is not to do with the soap itself, there’s something so satisfying and appealing about Lush’ paper packaging of each individual product!

As always, Lush’ bar of soaps are always such a nice feeling, with an amazing formula, often smothered in natural ingredients which is a plus. This one is 100% vegan, with natural ingredients such as coconut, rapeseed and rosewood oil, which seems to make application all the more soothing and perfect for sensitive skin, leaving your skin so soft! I feel like it has an instant calming effect, especially after a long day which I’ve found as a common asset of all¬†Lush soaps! This scent is very herbal and festive, with sweet undertones. it’s unlike most soaps which are usually either quite fruity/zesty or overly herbal which I don’t really like so this is the perfect compromise!

This particular soap looks amazing! In terms of looks, which attracted me initially to this soap over others, it looks phenomenal, unlike a typical soap. It’s infused with a sort of mystical look, with a blur of colours. It has tones of blue and green swirling over each other with golden blocks, and an imprinted sun on the other side of the soap. It’s almost a work of art; it’s very creative!

It’s no surprise this isn’t available all year. It’s one of the best! I would definitely recommend it!

Lush Products REVIEW! | Soap, bath bomb + massage bar

I got some lush products for my birthday a few months back, and have used them for a long time (they are my favourites!) and so I’m going to review the ones I have ūüôā Lush is one of my favourite stores for body products. I love the blend of different fruity and minty scents when you enter, and the packaging is the best! They are also not tested on animals and made with natural ingredients, rather than chemicals which are a bonus! And I have realised that all of the products I got are all pink, which is my favourite colour!

Lush online:

The Godmother Soap: https://www.lush.co.uk/products/godmother

Price: £3.10/100gthe godmother soap

This soap stood out because of the attractive purple – pink colour to it, but when I actually¬†smelt it, it stood out from the rest. It has a sweet, fresh and fruity smell to it, which is perfect if you don’t like minty scents. The¬†cost, ¬£3.10 for 100g is a bargain as the soap lathers well but doesn’t use up much, and so it lasts for ages! The price is reasonable for the size of 100g and I will definitely be trying different ones, as the variety means there’s one for everyone! I’ve still got mine after four months, and it’s still going strong. It can be used for hands or body, and it gives that sense of cleansiness after usage. The fact that it’s made with 100% natural ingredients means it doesn’t irritate your skin, like some do with chemicals in them. It’s much healthier than pump soaps!

Think Pink Bath Bomb: https://www.lush.co.uk/products/think-pink

£2.65 each Think pink bath bomb

This bath bomb is all about pink! It looks great with the decorative flowers added on, and as it dissolves, your bath tub fills with rice paper pink hearts, giving ultimate relaxation and joy! The scent is indescribable – it’s full of vanilla, fruit and joy, and very floral, adding to that sense of femininity. I love how your bath tub turns completely pink and the scent uplifts the entire bathroom. It’s perfect if you just want to be relaxed after a day of stress, and at ¬£2.65, it’s one of the more cheaper bath bombs, yet looks one of the best in my opinion!

Strawberry Feels Forever Massage Bar: https://www.lush.co.uk/products/strawberry-feels-forever

£5.75 each

This massage bar smells amazing – it’s very uplifting and has a real scent of strawberry, without being too overpowering, but I wouldn’t recommend this one if you’re not into fruity scents, though it isn’t overly Strawberry feels foreverstrong. You’re supposed to rest it on your skin for a couple of seconds to allow it to melt in with the warmth of your skin, and then lather it easily onto the rest of your body, but this takes a bit of time. It does feel really oily at first, which may be some people’s worst nightmare of a massage bar, but it absorbs into your skin fairly quickly and is extremely moisturizing and relaxing. Like Lush’s soaps, it lasts a long time, as not much product is used on each usage. It’s perfect after a warm bath! At ¬£5.75, it did feel a little pricy to regularly buy, though the fact that it lasts such an incredibly long time means it’s worth it in the long run.
