When was the last time you tried a product and loved EVERYTHING about it? Thinking, thinking, still thinking… Right… It hardly ever happens. I often find it takes several trial and errors before I fall in love with something and immediately go out to buy it when the bottle is empty.
BUT, I will gladly yell from the mountain tops about the love I have for LUSH products.
If you don’t know much about LUSH, here are their values and articles on each:
In short, LUSH considers the ethical, environmental and sustainable aspects of the products they create. Their products are for everyone and anyone – created by us, for us.
I am very picky about the products I put on my skin, as our skin absorbs almost everything – think about this the next time you wash your face or use a moisturizer.
I have combination skin, so finding a cleanser which does not dry out or over moisturize my skin can be tricky – as can all skin types.
At night-time, I can be lazy. The last thing I want to do is scrub my face for five minutes and jump into bed uncomfortable. I previously used products which dried out my skin, caused overall redness or left an unpleasant residue – none of which are ideal.
Where is the appeal?
As my values began to change, I knew my products needed too as well. This lead me straight to LUSH and more specifically to LUSH’s Ultrabland facial cleanser. I am halfway through my first pot and I love it. I have never enjoyed washing my face, until I purchased this product. My partner even comments on the softness of my skin afterwards.
Ultrabland is a thick cream, which contains beeswax, honey and rose-water (among other essential oils). The beeswax locks moisture in, while the rose-water soothes and reduces redness – perfect for sensitive skin.
The only drawback I found with Ultrabland was during my first few uses. It caused small red dots under my eyes the morning after. This only lasted the first couple of days, as I find my skin usually reacts to new facical products.
Besides the slight drawback, it is certainly the most refreshed I have felt after washing my face. Not to mention there is no intense scrubbing needed. My makeup glides right off! – Great after a night out.
(note: I do not use any waterproof makeup, as most of my makeup is natural)
I also recommend Cup O’ Coffee face and body mask if you are a coffee lover – It’s great on Saturday mornings.
If you have been thinking of giving LUSH a try, I highly recommend it. This something simple writer, is a LUSH believer.
I could recommend products all day – If you need a good pampering session, visit a LUSH store – they love to test their products on customers. When I bought my first natural shampoo/conditioner, they gave my hands a nice massage as they tested it on my skin.
