In the last few months, I've been trying out lots of products to incorporate into my daily regimen. Is it a surprise that I've Lush-ed out? Ever since I picked up this red lipstick from them, I've been enticed to keep on coming back, if not for their moisturizing bars and creams, it's their fizzy bath bombs (another post, mayhaps!) Of all the products I've tried (so far) these two are my favorites and have been staples in my cabinet.
Cosmetic Warrior is a fresh face mask that's stored in the fridge. One 2oz container lasts me about 2 weeks, and has enough product for 4-5 treatments. After I cleanse and exfoliate, I slather a generous amount on my face and leave it there for about five minutes before washing off with warm water. The mask contains grapes, honey, egg, garlic, and tea tree oil, among other ingredients, and is designed for blemished, acne prone skin. What I love about this mask is that it's an effective spot treatment for my breakouts. Whenever I feel a zit forming, I dab a small amount around the area, leave it on overnight, and by morning, it's gotten smaller without drying out to a crusty looking spot!
Ultrabland is a thick, creamy cleanser that works so very well as a makeup remover. The ingredients list boasts almond oil, honey, rose water, and beeswax. To use, I take a generous amount (about a quarter's size) and gently rub it all over my face (YES! even the eye areas). I remove it using a warm, damp wash cloth or paper towel. It felt weird, at first, not "washing" my face with something that lathered afterwards, but my face is always left really clean and moisturized after using this! Sometimes, when I feel like I need to exfoliate, I use half the amount just as a makeup remover and follow with a cleanser (my current one is Let the Good Times Roll). But most of the time, I just use Ultrabland, especially in the evening.
Have you tried either of these products from Lush? What are your Lush essentials?
