These Lush Products, among others are the joys of birthdays, an overflow of lovely beauty/skin care products. Who wouldn’t love that? Am I alone in this, or is this something all beauty lovers/bloggers love about birthdays?
If you don’t already know this, I am the ultimate list-maker, so of course I make birthday lists and hand them to my sister who then tells people what to buy me. It may sound crap because I don’t have any surprises or don’t allow people to pick out their own gifts for me but hear this, I pretty much only get things that I really want. I put a lot of thought and research into these things so people know that I will love what they give me. How could this be bad?
Well having gotten some of the items on my list I can give you a good review.
LUSH Rub Rub Rub: This is right up my alley, it is citrus scented, has some lemon juice and some floral – all the things I love, rolled into one product. Hence my love-at-first-whiff, it has just the right hints of these scents and reminds me of a beach front foot scrub. My problem areas are my legs, probably from shaving and lack of exfoliation, combined with horribly dry skin passed down from my dad – let’s just say it’s not a fun combination. So I’ve just been exfoliating with one of those coarse glove things and it’s been working well. Using this scrub before i jump in the shower and then using the glove has proven to be the winning combination. So if you have this sort of issue try this product in conjunction with a coarse shower glove. Also, if you need a more gentle scrub, you can use this product in the shower. R148 at Lush
LUSH Mask of Magnaminty: This is an interesting first for me. I’ve never really been a mask person, mostly because I don’t like the feeling it has when it’s dry. Most masks feel extremely tight, almost as if I’ve had a few trips to the Botox doctor, which I’m usually not keen for. And don’t get me wrong I feel that when this mask dries but I don’t mind because I’ll do it for the skin that follows. The thing I love most about this is that if I get that itch to pick at my face or squeeze an unwelcome visitor, I just apply a layer of this to my face and it dries out the spot but weirdly does not dry out my face. That’s a huge win in my book! R115-R215 at Lush
LUSH Karma Bubble Bar: It’s coming up again and it will keep coming up, this is another citrus one! Damnit I love citrus scented beauty products. This bubble bath ball is like none other, it’s pretty and smells like a Saturday morning at Babylonstoren – you can’t go wrong with that! As the name states, it’s a bubble ball, so it fizzes under running water and creates orange water (weird but cool) and bubbles. The whole bathroom was enveloped in the citrus smell. Great for Sunday/Monday pamper nights. Also the minty smell makes me happy, it’s so refreshing. R38,50 at Lush
