Lush Cosmetics Review

Hi lovelies,

Hope you all had a great start to your week!

Two weeks ago I went to LUSH Cosmetics and bought myself some goodies. I wanted to try these out before posting about them so I could do a little review, so here it is!

First of, I got the Roots Hair Treatment. My hair is very fine, thin and lacks volume so this treatment is supposed to make your hair shine without weighing it down. You leave it in your hair for about 20 mins and then shampoo. It has mint in it so it it makes your scalp tingle, I really really like it. Afterwards my hair is so shiny and soft, and smells really good.

Next is the Dark Angels face & body cleanser. This contains black sugar and charcoal that absorb excess oils. I have oily skin which can sometimes break out, especially during that time of the month or the summer months. So this was right up my alley! The only thing is I recommend taking this off in front of a mirror to ensure you remove everything from your face, I did it in the shower and when i came out half my face was still black from the charcoal, it looked as if I had a beard. lol.

The last thing I got was the Mask of Magnaminty. I absolutely love this! It has China clay and peppermint which help extract all the nasty stuff living in my pores, it also leaves a tingly feeling, I love mint! Aside from this, it also has honey and vanilla which help calm redness and soothe the skin. I leave this on for about 15 mins and then wash off in the shower.

Skin Care Essentials

Hi there & welcome back!

I live in Houston TX, proud home of the Houston Livestock Rodeo, Beyoncé and the most unpredictable weather! This “winter” we’ve seen temperatures as low as 35° and as high as 85°, this change in weather can be tough on my skin, which is why I need to stay on top of my (face) skincare routine.Below are some essentials with info on price and where to buy.

I provided the price is for full size items. Sometimes skin care can be a tad-bit expensive, but it is important to remember that you are investing and not spending. Besides, your skin is the largest organ, so it’s important to take care of it! Also, do some research before you go into a store, sometimes sales associates (although helpful) may try to get you to buy the most expensive item, if you have a problem saying no, like me, you could end up buying something you don’t like or need.

TIP: 
Always ask if there are trial/travel/sample sizes available for a product. This way you can test on your skin and see if you like it before investing in it.

Not included in the post is a good face-friendly SPF. Currently in the market for one that won’t leave an oily residue. Any suggestions?

Thanks for stopping by, until next time!

¡Adios!
