I always love being inside a Lush store because it smells Ah.Maaaziing !! But I have to accept the fact that Lush is not available here in Indonesia anymore. I used to love buying their soaps (my favorite is Sultana!) but I haven't tried any of their skincare range before.
So when I started to delve into the world of skincare I started to see Lush products being featured by fellow skincare enthusiasts. It made me crave for Lush products so much I finally put an Australian order via a local online store. The closest country to get Lush is from Singapore & Australia (I'm not sure whether Malaysia have it or not).
I originally wanted to try one of their fresh masks but after reading some info I realized that the fresh masks were made very fresh that it only has about 3 weeks lifespan. I then figured it would take about a week to get my order from Australia, so by the time my order came it would already cut 1 week out of it's 3 weeks lifespan. So I canceled the fresh masks and only ordered the products that have longer lifespan such as these two below :
1. Angels on Bare Skin Facial Cleanser (has 3 - 4 months lifespan).
2. Eau Roma Water (Toner - long lifespan)
>> My current skin condition is sensitive-combination with blemishes.
I've been researching a bit before buying my first Lush skincare products and these two products were among the ones that were recommended by a lot of women with similar skin condition.
Lush Eau Roma Water is one of the toners that are available from Lush. Many people recommended this toner so I chose this one. I know some of you might wonder what's so special about a toner? It's just a spray of water after all. I used to think the same too, but now I'm beginning to realize the importance of toner in a skincare routine. It helps calm your skin down after a rigorous cleansing, and it helps tone and refresh your skin, and in some cases it also helps get rid of dirt and makeup residue that wasn't picked up by your cleanser.
This toner has a formula of rose water which will help to calm and reduce redness, whilst lavender water will balance and soften the skin. It is meant to hydrate and soothe the skin both gently and effectively. At least that's what they claimed it to be. In real life, I felt that it is indeed a soothing and calming toner, with a lovely aroma to freshen up your skin and uplift your mood. The formula also helps with my combination skin and it is a great combo if paired with Angels on Bare Skin.
Lush Angels on Bare Skin is one of Lush's best seller product. It is a facial cleanser made from 100% natural ingredients. Inspired by a medieval recipe, this cleanser contains kaolin to absorb grease and dirt, mixed with ground almond to tone and brightens the skin, and topped off with lavender flowers. It also contain lavender oil and rose absolute to help calm the skin.
The texture is very unique. It's not like your usual facial cleanser, this one has a rather solid form but you can easily peel it bits by bits as you use it along the way. You can see the lavender flowers on top and don't be afraid to use it on your skin. As you buff it away it would help soothe and calm your skin while the mixture of ground almonds and kaolin would clean your skin, leaving it fresh and nourished.
How to use it :
- Pick up a small amount of the solid cleanser, put it in your hands, and mixed with a little water to create a paste.
- Put the paste on your face and scrub it away to cleanse.
- You can also let it sit on your face for a little while as a face mask after you finished scrubbing. After a few minutes continue to rinse it with water.
Before I tried this cleanser I always wonder why so many people raved about it, so I was intrigued and wanted to try it for myself. Now I know why so many people love this cleanser because I love it too!! This is probably my most favorite cleanser everrrr. It made my skin feels clean without stripping the oils, and it also makes my skin looks brighter and more refreshed. The scrubby smooth texture makes the exfoliation process such an enjoyable moment. I love scrubbing my face with this cleanser. It feels soft and smooth on my skin and it really helps with my combination skin too. I simply love love love this cleanser and would recommend it to all of you (^_^).
Overall, I really really love my first experience with Lush skincare, and I am eager to try another skincare product from Lush. I'm eyeing their Mask of Magnaminty and one of their fresh masks (I'm still curious with them!). If you have similar skin condition like mine I recommend you tried these duo and lemme know how they works on you !
Hugs & Kissies !
