As promised in 6 Ways to Feel Better When You’re Under the Weather, here is my skin care routine (at least for my face)! I love Lush products. They are natural, cruelty free, smell amazing and are generally fun to use. I have tried many different skin care routines, but none have been a great fit. I have very dry, sensitive skin and the products would either cause my skin to overreact and become oily, break me out, or turn me red. I was pretty much at the end of my skin care rope when I walked into Lush that day. I explained my concerns and past experiences and the employees listened carefully and set me up with an amazing regime, and I have never looked back.
Here is what I use:
Ultrabland facial cleanser. The primary ingredient in here is beeswax which makes it ideal for removing makeup.
Let the Good Times Roll Facial Cleanser. This stuff is incredible, it smells like salted caramel popcorn, it does a great job of exfoliating, but it is still gentle enough for my sensitive skin. Enough good things cannot be said.
Eau Roma Toner Water. The main ingredients in here are lavender water and rose water. Lavender is excellent for sensitive skin and there are endless benefits to rose water. Rose water nourishes and hydrates skin, while giving it a natural glow. Perfect for my skin type. Not to mention it smells lovely!
Skin Drink Moisturizer. The name really says it all, but this bad boy does a great job of giving my skin moisture without causing it to become greasy. This is especially awesome for the harsh midwest winters.
Celestial Moisturizer. Although I have been using skin drink for a long time, and I do love it, I decided to switch it up recently and try this awesome concoction for sensitive skin. With its key ingredients of almond milk and cocoa butter, it is still very moisturizing while calming down redness. It has only been a week, but I’m loving it already!
Oatifix Fresh Face Mask. This smells like the best banana bread you have ever had. Both bananas and oats have awesome moisturizing properties and BONUS: Oatmeal helps to normalize your skin’s PH levels while banana, full of vitamin C and B6 give your skin a youthful glow. What more could a girl ask for?
Mask of Magnaminty. This gem smells like delicious peppermint and is excellent for clearing your skin up without drying it out. I love alternating this with oatifix and I do about two face masks per week.
Lush overall is a great company and their products have benefited my skin tremendously, but I would also recommend reading reviews and asking questions. I know at Lush stores you can sample any of the products and you should definitely do so before purchasing. Finding the right routine is definitely a process of trial and error, but I am glad I have found what works for me! If you have any questions for me, always feel free to email me, I would love to help in any way I can.
You are loved,
