I mentioned in a few posts back that I'd read a few reviews and was going to pick myself up the Tea Tree Water from LUSH. I'm a pretty recent toner user but I bought this hoping it would calm my spots down a bit, as they've been flaring up again lately due to some circumstances. And I really like this toner. It is an extremely simple product, yet helps my skin feel super fresh and maintain a healthy appearance. The packaging is absolutely wonderful because I love that it includes spray pump so that you may spritz the product on your skin instead of actually pouring it onto a cotton pad. This way you end up using much less product like this, and therefore can get months of use with it. Personally I would say that this toner is great for really any skin type, but particularly combination to oily skins that are acneic, I totally recommend it.

I apply this every morning. And at first I sprayed it onto my hands and then applied it to my face, rubbing it in. But now I spray it directly onto my face and leave it. I get spots every now and then, especially the last few weeks and I bought this to see if it made a difference to them. To be honest I'm not sure if it has worked on my spots, just yet. But I don't think I've been using it long enough to see if thats ture or not but it works wonders making my skin feel soft, clean and refreshed.

Normally I don't use face scrub very often but when I was in LUSH the other week one of the lovely girls in there was telling me about Ocean Salt, and well LUSH is definietly my weakness and I ended up buying it. Ocean Salt is a coconut and lime body and face scrub. Straight away when you open Ocean Salt the gorgeous smell hits your nose straight away, even my boyfriend commented on how good it smelt when he had a look at it. The texture is extremely course on the top as that's where all the salt is, but if you dig into the pot a little more and there's a smoother layer.

My skin is very indecisive at times and depending on the weather it always changes but majority of the time it is very, very dry.  I've only been using it once or twice a week because I was worried it'd be too harsh for my face. But after using this product my skin felt so soft and smooth. Despite the scrubby nature of it, it doesn't feel too harsh because the texture of it is less hard, but more of a grainy texture and you can always scrub more gently if you find the salt crystals a bit painful.

I've been using this for just over a month now and apart from the amazing smell it is also really moisturising and as soon as I put some on my face I can't stop myself from putting it all over my body too,  it's quite expensive to use it this way, but I definietly feel its one of those productst that a little bit goes a long way. I think the smell is divine and if you have definite non-sensitive skin it's worth a try, because it really is a luxurious treat.

I have pretty sensitive skin especially on my face which means I can only use certain products or else my skin will explode into a blotchy, itchy red mess. I have tried other face masks before which have not worked at all but I found that this one is really gentle on my skin yet leaves it feeling hydrated and refreshed. This is a mask to help keep skin hydrated, especially if it’s prone to dryness. It is made from fresh bananas, illipe butter, fine oatmeal, almonds, vanilla. My skin has felt a lot more supple, moisturized and hydrated and I love using it especially because its improving my skin and smells amazing.  It literally smells like banana bread batter.

I was recommended this by one of the girls in LUSH. And so far this face mask seems to balance everything out; it makes my skin ridiculously soft, and it smells literally good enough to eat, although the texture can be hard to work with because its quite lumpy but once you get the hang of it it fine, I put this on before I usually put this on just before I get in the bath so probably I usually leave it on my skin for about 25 minutes and  I think it worked wonders. It is one of the most moisturizing masks I've found and I will definitely repurchase!!
