Lush Skincare ConsultationSaturday, February 15, 2014
Last Month I replied to a tweet from Meadowhall Lush asking if any Bloggers wanted to do a Skincare swap and I sent them a message straight away asking what was Involved.
They explained If I took in products I was using at the moment or disliked products I had bought they would swap them for Lush Skincare product samples for my skin type. The products I took in for my swap were the Philosophy Purity Cleanser and the Elemental Herbology Cell Pumping Facial Hydrator. Both of these products haven't work for my dry skin.
I arrived at the store 15 minutes before opening but they had a little beauty morning on so invited me straight in. I had a little look round until they were ready for me which wasn't long at all.
I was asked my skin type and what I looked for in a product and then we went through each step of a skincare routine choosing product they felt would be perfect for my skin type.
The first thing we went through were face masks now I had tried a few face mask from here but normally for girly pamper nights so I have picked ones that would suit all skin types rather than one specifically for me. I had 4 face masks picked out and put onto my hand to see which I preferred the feel of.
The one I decided on was Sacred Truth this felt amazing on and Lush say Ginseng and ginkgo leaf help to stimulate, whilst honey, yoghurt and free range eggs leave skin soft and moisturised. Green tea and fresh wheatgrass are full of antioxidants, allowing your skin to feel fresh, cleansed and revitalised. This has to be the best face mask Ive tried and left my skin feeling and looking fresh and moisturised I even got the boyfriend to wear it!
We then moved onto Cleansers and we picked out a few but decided on 2 Ultra Bland This was chose as I have redness to my face and my skin is sensitive and dry this is what they say about this product. Honey softens and conditions the skin, and has antiseptic properties; whilst rose water and rose absolute reduce redness and help to balance the skin. I also told her I have to exfoiliate often to get rid of flaky skin on my nose and she advised Ocean Salt as it is not too harsh and also cleansers too I fell in love with this from the first time I used this.
Moisturisers were next and we decided on 2 again the Skin Drink for really dry days and Celestial. In the Shop I loved skin drink more I liked the smell but on my face I thought It a little over powering I can't really put my finger on what it smells like I said It smelt like sandwich filling herby mayonnaise but the boyfriend disagreed. It was lovely for my dry skin though.
Celestial has to be my favourite now I have used it a few weeks and feel so moisturising Almond milk and Cocoa butter help soothe and moisturise the skin.
The last product was my absolute favourite and I have already repurchased this and that is the Full of Grace Solid Skin Serum. I have been using this on my face every night and it feels amazing and leaves my skin looking beautifully soft.
Any one who is stuck in a rutt with their skincare routine I would urge you to go to Lush and get a skincare consultation. They are so helpful and my skin feels so much better. I will be purchasing most of the items above and you will see full reviews on them shortly.
I have really sensitive skin and I have not reacted to anything that they advised for me so I am so happy.
Thank you Lush for giving me the opportunity to sample your skincare range and I have a feeling that a lot more of the products will be in my collection soon.
