Just a small review about Lush’s Bubble Gum Lip Scrub < note that this is a link to the American Lush as our UK site is still down after the Christmas hacking!
I’ve looked at it since it was launched and always felt it was a bit gimmicky so never bothered. As this was to be my first Lush purchase for myself so I thought I’d give it a twirl.
Oh man, I wish I’d bought this years ago dammit!
The smell and taste of bubblegum is strong but not overpoweringly so and the sugar crystals provide enough gentle exfoliation to turn the flakiest kisser in to a smooth plump pout without it being painful and ‘raw’
I like to apply this morning and night right across my lips and slightly extending in to the skin to make sure the lip line is smooth too. I follow it up with a slather of a thick lip balm to provide further moisturising.
The scrub itself leaves a little deposit of oil on the lips after scrubbing but its no where near enough to rely on as a balm.
For £4.99 this is a perfect little pot to keep in stand by for lip emergencies. The tub will last me a very long time as a little goes a long way. It is very easy to use while it is full but I think I might struggle as it gets near the bottom, without the aid of a long nail or something to fish the grains out of the bottom.
Just a quick one today as I am still struck down with the mystery lurgy – I’d like to declare my love for Method Baby Squeaky Green Body Lotion!
Originally designed as a green line of baby products I have fallen in love with their lotion. I keep a bottle of it in my desk drawer, one in the car and one by my bed for softening hands and elbows. It keeps my hands nourishes and soft without it feeling claggy or like an oil slick.
I picked my bottles up at Home Bargains, after a tip off, for 98p each and they are the cutest little bottles either, all round and pale. The smell is divine, it reminds me of Kellogs rice crispy squares – YUM. Its not an over powering smell but it does gently linger on the skin.
I can’t comment on the eco-merits of it being a green baby brand but it is amazing as a hand / body lotion! 1 pump dispenses enough to do hands, elbows and a light rub over the fore arms. I mostly just use it on my dry ‘workmans’ hands and wrists to keep my tattoo looking fresh and moisturised.
All in all, a top buy and I’d recommend it to anyone!
I’m struck down with sickness at the minute so i’m having to fight the urge to go to bed to write this for all my lovelies!
Both the limited edition Graphite palette and the Primer palette are now both in my possession (it’s love!) and i’m super impressed!
I don’t have the energy to do a full review on them yet as I haven’t tried them out for an EOTD or even swatched every shade but my god….. the pigmentation on the primer palette is beyond amazing! So dense and bright!
These paints will be the perfect base for an EOTD or even as a beautifully blended shade of their own. I did a quick swatch of the black and blue (between sneezies) and they are so velvety soft, vivid with 1 swipe of a finger and easily blendable with a light finger.
My main delight so far is the PP came in a cardboard sleeve box rather than the usual rigid clear perspex, many times ive given myself a papercut style gash to the finger trying to rescue the palette… hello cardboard – please come again!!
Let me set the scene… I wear ballet shoes 7 days a week, without socks or tight, and I walk really heavily on my heels. As you can well imagine I have skin on my feet harder than trying to work out the VAT increase on the spot while sales shopping!
I have tried Flexitol before when it first came out but for the price, I didn’t rate the results.
I’m tempted to try Cold Cream and a pair of cotton socks over night to see if it softens up any…. But I hate wearing socks to bed – ARGH!
Can anyone recommend a nice thick nourishing product to cover my tootsies in to have them silky smooth again?
