My sister started her mock exams for her Leaving Cert last week and I thought she needed some sort of treat to de-stress, calm and refresh her. I found myself wandering around Avoca for some sort of cute pick me up, but didn't find anything satisfactory. I popped around to Lush, and was helped straight away by one of the girls working there, who happens to live just down the road from me. I told her I was looking for something to revitalise and pamper, and she immediately lead me towards their fabulous array of facemasks. I picked out Brazened Honey, which I was told was quite refreshing and nourishing. Perfect I thought. It was only then that I got distracted by their amazing range of creams and moisturisers that I knew my sister was definitely going to be spoilt that day! I had heard from some of my followers on Twitter that Lush do an amazing body cream called Dream Cream, and instantly I was drawn to that. Why not I thought!? It didn't stop there. I eventually found my way back to the till and was distracted yet again by their hair products, and was informed that the BIG Shampoo was perfect for giving volume and shine. Something my sister tends to moan about alot! So I picked one up and handed over my dosh.
These three products came to a total of €47, which might be leaning towards splurge territory for some, but I thought they were a perfect bundle of pick me ups for a little sister who needed cheering up. I also intended to try them out too, you know, to make sure I was getting my money's worth. :)
The facemask is so rich and smells to me like crazy exotic plant life. It states on the tub that it "exfoliates, detoxifies, stimulates and nourishes", and I really really like it so far. Worked into the skin in circular motions and left for ten minutes before rinsing off, it leaves a noticable difference to my face. My face feels smooth, clean and fresh after using.
I was told that this cream was invented for psoriasis, and I purchased it for two reasons. Well three. It has been recommended to me numerous times, it smells divine, and I figured if I was to use it, it would be perfect for my dry, work ridden hands. So far, it delivers. And there is just so much product in the tub! Happy out.
Overall I am quite impressed with these three products, and would most definitely purchase Lush products again. :)
