I love going to my local Lush store of a weekend, and this Saturday afternoon was no exception. It’s not just a shop, it’s a whole sensory experience. As soon as you walk in you’re hit by the aromas of all the natural ingredients and the pure freshness and care of the whole operation… I don’t know how the staff spend whole days in the shop as I swear I would lose my sense of smell, but it’s fab for an hour or so!
What I also love so much about Lush is the exceptional knowledge of all the assistants… if you have a query or a problem, they have an answer or solution. This week it was problem skin. Now I normally have pretty clear and smooth skin, but for some reason or other it’s decided to have random break-outs and get really greasy of late. So off to my local Lush in Covent Garden… The two products I purchased this time were Angels on Bare Skin and Ocean Salt.
Angels on Bare Skin is a cleanser and exfoliator which contains rose and lavender oil – it comes in a kind of thick clay which you have to break off and mix with warm water to create a thinner paste. This is then applied to the skin and washed off like a normal face wash. I’ve never used a product like this before so it was a little strange at first, but after a few days of using it it’s fabulous. It really gives you a glowing and ultra-smooth complexion instantly and I can feel a real difference in my skin.
Ocean Salt is an amazing smelling facial scrub which contains citrus fruit juices, avocado and coconut. You really feel refreshed and like you’ve been to the spa after using this one… especially thanks to the big salt chunks on the top which make it look exotic! I’ve been told to use this once or twice a week for a deeper cleanse and I’m addicted already. I got a little bit in my mouth by accident and it even tasted nice!
I’m really concerned about the amount of junk I put on my skin, but after using the Lush products I can feel the benefits of using natural ingredients to do the job as good as, if not better than, the chemical-filled products that we all buy so easily. So, get yourself down to Lush next weekend – it’s an order!
