I’ve only really dabbled with LUSH skin care in the past. The Fresh Face masks are nice for an occassional treat, but I found their solid cleansers such as Herbalism and Angels on Bare Skin too fussy to use. I wash my face in the shower in the morning and can’t be bothered with trying to keep water out of a tub of solid cleanser and trying to mix a paste in my hands before it all crumbles down the drain. But I have discovered two products from the LUSH skin care line that I am really loving now.
First up is Skin’s Shangrhi La, I received a sample of this in a giftset. This is a super thick moisturizer, definitely for the dry skinned girlies. And even then I only use it at night and on the weekends when I know I won’t be going out. This stuff is greasy! But it’s perfect for getting dried out winter skin back into shape. The only thing I dislike about it is the scent. It contains wheat grass and vanilla, and it smells like wheat grass and vanilla. It is not a pleasant scent.
And the second product is the 9 to 5 cleansing lotion. This stuff on the other hand smells divine, it’s very floral so if that’s not your thing, I would avoid this. I use this on a cotton pad in the evening and it will completely dissolve all of your makeup, including waterproof mascara, it’s very gentle and won’t sting your eyes. I then follow-up with my Boot Botanics All Bright Cleansing toner.
Have you tried any LUSH skincare? What are you using to combat dry winter skin?
