Hello lovelies, i hope your all having a pleasant Monday. Today i wanted to talk about two Lush products i got at Christmas and have been loving. As always for Christmas my dad gave me a Lush voucher and this time round i wanted to branch out from my normal bath products and try a few new things. I also really wanted to see if Lush would be able to offer me something that would help with the redness in my skin and a good gentle but efficient daily way to remove all the make-up i wear. The lovely woman that i was speaking to recommended ultrabland which is a facial cleanser and eau roma water which is a toner water.
Ultrabland: "Ultra effective, ultra gentle face cleanser. A rich soft, oily cleansing cream that cares gently for all skin type. Invented by them, for them, this is the Lush founders number one desert island product." This is a lovely thick cream that i massage into my face at night when i want to take all my make up off. As it contains bees wax it removes make up really easy but more important it's really gentle when doing so. I'm not crazy with the smell as it does smell quite waxy but it's not overpowering and it quite a light fragrance so i can happily live with this. You only need a little bit as it does go a long way even if you have a full face of make up on, so i can see this little tub lasting me quite some time. You can use a damp warm flannel to remove it or a cotton pad, i personally use a cotton pad with the eau roma water.
Eau Roma Water: "Kind aromatherapy water to cherish your face. A gentle tonic for everyday use that will help hydrate the skin without causing it to overreact." As this contains lavender water the lady recommended this for the redness in my skin, which i can say i have noticed a difference. I am completely won over with this product and can't see myself not having this in my skin care routine now. Before this i never used a toner in my routine as i found the ones i tried left my skin feeling taught and made my dry skin really bad, this is completely the opposite and leaves my skin feeling amazing. I can understand why they call it aromatherapy water as it smells so pleasant and relaxing because of the lavender in it, and it's really refreshing to use.
For me using these two together they are a dream team and make removing my make up easy and quick, which doesn't have a million steps to do and i can also do it whilst I'm watching TV haha. The only other step i do before this is removing my mascara with a wet wipe, although i use the ultrabland on my eyes i don't want to use it on my eyelashes. On adverage with a full face of make up on it only takes three cotton pads to completely remove my make up and the ultrabland. I have also been pleasantly surprised with how long the toner water has lasted as i use about four sprays on each cotton pad and a few on my face each time. I thought doing this it wouldn't last that long however it's done the opposite and hasn't gone as quickly as i'd imagine.
Have you tried any of Lush's facial cleansers or toner waters? Thank you for reading, hope you have a wonderful day and i shall see you all again soon x
