I accidentally shopping

August 4, 2013 § 11 Comments



Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you’ve all had a lovely week! On Friday I decided to do a little pick-me-up beauty shopping (my boyfriend has just gone offshore for 2 weeks and I already miss him!) and since I had to hang around Edinburgh for a couple of hours to wait for my parents, I ended up with quite a reasonable haul! « Read the rest of this entry »


Review: Lush “Love Lettuce” Fresh Face Mask

May 2, 2013 § Leave a comment


There’s nothing better to make you feel fresh and a little bit pampered than a really nice face mask, and Love Lettuce from Lush is my favourite so far. After using it, my skin feels wonderfully soft, smooth and nourished; I have to force myself to limit using it! « Read the rest of this entry »

Review: Lush “Ocean Salt” face scrub

April 23, 2013 § 4 Comments

I have quite sensitive skin and with several face washes and scrubs I’ve tried previously I’ve found most really irritate my skin and leave my face feeling raw, and most  perfumed products make me itchy as hell. So far the only products I’ve found that work well for me are Simple face washes. Somehow, though, while being quite sensitive my skin still manages to feel quite rough and dry without a good exfoliating scrub in the mornings, and I’ve got pretty bored of having to use bland products every day.

After finding that Lush products are delicate enough to do what they’re supposed to without damaging my skin while still smelling great, I just had to find myself an exfoliating face scrub to try.

Would I buy this again?: Yes

At £6.95 for a 100g pot, this scrub is a little pricey, but I think it’s more than worth it and I’m definitely recommending it to anyone who likes a good exfoliating face scrub.

It contains rock salt as its exfoliating agent, and smells of coconuts and limes which makes it a great one for brightening your morning. The base itself has quite a nice, creamy texture, doesn’t lather up like most scrubs on the market and doesn’t leave my face feeling as dry as some products have. The salt in this scrub does mean it’s very rough, but I found that with a very gentle pressure it works fantastically, plus this roughness means you can use it on other areas of your body besides your face.
