Lush Skin Care Routine

Lush Skin Care Routine.

If you know me well and you've been reading my blog for some time, you'll be aware my skin-care is terrible...practically non-existent. Until this summer anyway, I decided it was time to make a change and have a test with what works on my skin and what doesn't. I've kept it simple and stuck to one brand in particular. A natural brand, who concentrate on using the best products which always turn out to work great on my skin.  So I thought I'd share with you the bits I've picked up over the past few months and how they're working with my skin...and to honestly tell you how well I've stuck to a routine. 

Truth be told, this isn't a religiously kept routine but a couple times a week using these products have left my skin feeling super smooth, with my some what crazy schedule...I struggle to find the energy to stick with a routine at night time and I'm still half asleep by the time I FINALLY wake up. But here's the products I've been using to keep my skin feeling fresh, when I'm not. 

I like to use this once I've removed my makeup, either spritzing this over my face or onto a cotton pad itself.  It says it in the name, but I find this so refreshing it smells wonderful too. Makeup can be stubborn and some-times it just doesn't want to leave my face, using this wipes away the rest and yeah, it just helps clear my face straight away! 

I ADORE ocean salt. Before finding this product I wanted something like this without knowing what I needed. When my face is having a breakdown and a breakout I automatically want to scrub at it, just scrub it clean and I never had a product that would do that before. The salt in this citrus filled scrub (which is my favourite scent, oh so fruity) really gets into the areas that I feel need it most...and I'll tell you know, this has been perfect this week as I've had a weird breakout.

Similar to the toner water, this works perfectly to clear up my skin. As a cleanser it really helps to clear out my skin, of both makeup and anything that makes me skin feel uncomfortable. I love the feel of the cream, I leave it to settle a little and then wipe away with a flannel. However one of the ingredients is bees wax and something about that and the smell puts me off this product...but I continue to use this because of benefits for my skin.

So there you have it, a little review and a little insight to my skin care. It's still a little out of routine and I need to work out a way of remember to use all these product in the morning or before bed, but I'm just too lazy for that!

  1. I love the look of all of these Lush products. I've never used any of their skincare range before and I think I need to branch out!

  3. Love Ultrabland - it took me two tubs of the stuff to fall in love with it but once I did, damn I miss having that in my routine! My skin looked and felt great, so soft and smooth! The smell still gets me but the pay off was well worth it!

    1. Oh definitely, the smell isn't all that great but it leaves my skin feeling great. Going to use this more regularly to keep the benefits!

  9. I love Lush products and I've purchased their scrub a few months ago and I love it. It really leaves my skin smooth and it takes off all of the dead cells. Great post.

  10. I'm also SO lazy with my skincare; I just really struggle to settle into a routine! I've heard good things about Ultrabland though, so I think I'll give that a go soon :)

  11. I had heard really great things about Ultrabland, however when I tried it out, I just couldn't make it work for my skin. That was a few months ago, so after reading this post I think I'm going to give it a try again! Love the sound of the scrub and toner water - will have to check them out next time I'm in LUSH. Great post and lovely photos! x

  13. I've got a pretty non-existent skincare routine myself, haha, but I've been trying to get into it with a one-brand routine, too. Not Lush, though!

  14. I've been wanting to try the Ultrabland, it sounds really good, although I hope I'm a bit more keen on the scent than you are! Really want to give the Ocean Salt a go as well. I've been love the Mask of Magnaminty from Lish at the moment!

    1. Give it a try! I hope so, it's such an odd scent...it's like the after-scent!!
      Ocean Salt is my favourite & I could do with re-purchasing Mask of Magnanimity I loved it when I tried it before
