LUSH skin! Yes please!!

A while back ago I had a bit of a meltdown with my skincare routine! I was in a rut my skin just looked dull and super dry my base wasn’t right so my make up wasn’t right. You can’t build a sturdy house on shakey foundations!!
So I did I got on line and did a bit of tapping away on les internets and low and behold after much hmming and hawing I clicked add to basket on a brand new 3 step routine all for me!! Out with the old my dearies!!
So I turned to lush. I am a big fan of natural products. My skin is super sensitive and dry so the fewer additives in my skincare the better
I love LUSH! What’s not to love! Fresh ingredients turned into pure magic so I lent my face to natural remedies hoping my skin would be silkier by winter! Fingers crossed! (It worked!)

the cleanser
ultra bland
Ultrabland is a beautiful blend of essential oils, honey and beeswax. It takes off make up so easily and leaves your skin feeling super soft and hydrated. It’s got yummy rosewater which reduces redness and iris flower extract and smells really lovely.It’s gentle enough for everyday use and suits all skin types.

the toner
Eau Roma

Eau Roma water is a soothing herbal toner perfect for Dry, sensitive or mature skin that’s in need of some tlc. It’s made from two essential oils rose and lavender. Eau Roma is just the most wonderful thing in the world I love love love love love it. A spritz feels like your skin is being Kissed by angels it’s pure heaven!

the moisturiser
Skin Drink
Super Hydrating avocado and aloe Vera moisturiser. I should start by saying it looks like mud and smells well like mud! But is really wonderful on your skin. It rids your skin of that horrible tightness feeling that goes with uber parched skin. It’s jam packed with nourishing ingredients like moisturizing rose petal extract, fresh avocado and aloe vera extract to keep your skin feeling soft and loved. Added Evening primrose, neroli and rose oils improve the skin’s texture and leave you with that healthy looking glow.

I’m happier than ever with my skin! It’s flawless my dry skin was so frustrating but now I’m delighted!! I love LUSH!! X

Make a Splash!! REVIEW MAC CHARGED WATER

M.A.C Mineralize brought out there Charged water Collection last year. Needless to say I was very excited. This collection was brought out especially for people with incredibly dry skin. (That would be me!) I Bought Charged Water Cleanser, Charged Water Skin Hydrating Mist & Charged Water Moisture Gel/ Gel Creme.

I love this Collection the Gel Moisturiser soothes skin and makes it feel instantly refreshed. My only problem with it was that I had used the whole pot in a month and at €35 it wasn’t something that I’m in a hurry to buy again. Although I absolutely adore it and my skin felt like silk after it it’s too dear to buy monthly. (Update… I have since repurchased this four times and have learned to use it sparingly…very sparingly)

The Cleanser is the best! its a non rinse formula which I find just so handy I leave this on my night stand, which mean I no longer wake up every morning looking like Alice Cooper. Again It’s fairly easy to fly through this cleanser but I find it the best I’ve used so far. It’s nice and rehydrating and feels just like water. I can’t stand anything oily on my face and this is the most natural cleanser I’ve found so far.

The Skin Hydrating Mist is okay. I wasn’t as blown away by it as I was the other two. It’s supposed to be like a “drink of water” for your skin. It refreshes your skin and also sets make up. To be honest I’ve had this for well over a year now and I’ve barely made a dent on it. If you tend to get cakey makeup from powder this is a great product to bring your face back to life. It pretty much does what it says it will so no complaints really here. I like to use it for wetting brushes to use on eye shadow to get an intense colour. Its so good if you have any mineralize Mac products just spritz your brush with this and the intensity of colour will knock your socks off!!!
it’s good but really not a product i couldn’t live without!

Basically if you have sensitive dry skin like me I reckon you will love these products but your wallet probably won’t…
