My Skin Care Routine // Lush

Hello again lovelies! Big thank you again to all my followers for getting me past 50! I didn't think I'd get past 10! Thanks for all the lovely comments and emails I've received too! I'm thinking about doing a giveaway when i reach 100 followers or do I wait till I get 150 or 200? Let me know what you think in the comments. Over the next few days I'm hoping to get a few more blog posts up, I have loads of ideas and keep your eye out for guest blogs I'll be writing. Now onto the post. :)

I've always been lucky when it comes to my skin, while everyone got 20 spots at a time, I'd get the odd couple and they'd be small. I also have dry skin (around my nose, sometimes my forehead) and foundation made it worse, so I decided to take better care of my skin. After using up the first bottles of what I'd been using (nivea, The range they bought out for teens) I repurchased. Disaster struck and these products were awful, it was like the formula's changed, they played havoc with my dry skin. This is when I switched to LUSH. Since then I have never needed to switch brands again. I also use two products from Neutrogena.

The products I use:
  1. LUSH - Angels On Bare Skin - Cleanser. (every day, once or twice)
  2. LUSH - Ocean Salt - Facial scrub. (every other day)
  3. LUSH - Aqua Marina - Cleanser. (every day if i don't use AOBS)
  4. LUSH - 9 To 5 - Cleanser. (Evenings)
  5. LUSH - Eau Roma Water - Toner (every day, twice if i can)
  6. LUSH - Brazened Honey - Face mask. (weekly, I'll switch up the face masks)
  7. LUSH- Ayesha - Face mask. (weekly, I'll switch up the face masks)
  8. Neutrogena - Multi-Defense - Daily Moisturiser. (for dry skin) (twice daily, before makeup)
  9. Neutrogena - Multi-Defense - Gentle Purifying Wipes (To take makeup off, before other products)
Now I've used LUSH skin care products for about 2-3 years now. I'm happy to say I have finally found what works for my skin. I rarely get spots, only around my time of the month -.- joy. I get compliments about how clear my skin is and healthy. We aren't perfect sometimes I'll skip a day if I really don't have time. Just remember to make sure you know what skin type you are, buy products for that skin type and even look at what foundations there are out there for your skin type! You'll have even better results.

If you have dry skin or sensitive skin I really recommend giving these a try, plus lush do give you samples of the products for free. I've also found that what the staff recommend you for 'dry skin' is not always the case. But everyone's skin is different.

Let me know about what products you use or if you've tried any of these!

  5. Hey hun, I really like Lush products, I use a lot of the bath stuff and I have the ocean salt too and love that.
