Face Mask Friday–LUSH Cosmetic Warrior!

Image

What LUSH says: “Spots! Oily areas! Blackheads! The frustration of having breakout prone skin can incite aggressive, ‘industrial’ type cleaning. Unfortunately, breakout prone skin is often very sensitive, so using harsh cleansers can actually make the problem worse. Don’t over attack your skin; lead it firmly down the path to salvation with Cosmetic Warrior. Cosmetic Warrior is kind to problem-laden faces thanks to moisturizing egg whites and honey, which smooth and tighten the pores, and cleansing garlic and tea tree oil for a fresh, clear, happy face.”

Hey lovelies! I’m sorry that I have been absent on the blog recently, I’ve been spending my birthday week in Chicago with my best friend of fourteen years! It’s been absolutely amazing and crazy, I have barely had enough time for makeup, let alone blogging! You know me, I can’t resist anything made by LUSH, especially their face masks, so I stopped by one here and grabbed up a few more. This one happens to be my favorite LUSH makes, and is absolutely a must have for acne prone skin. If you don’t read any more, read this. You need it.  Continue reading

Face Mask Friday! LUSH Brazened Honey

Image

What LUSH says, “Brazened Honey was inspired by traditional Indian Ayurvedic principles, which put emphasis on balance as the foundation to health. Fresh free-range eggs and honey soften, lime oil brightens, spices warm the skin and ground almonds exfoliate. Kaolin clay reaches deep down into pores to pull out dirt and impurities, leaving your skin noticeably brighter and fresher. Our deepest cleansing mask, Brazened Honey is the perfect way to revive sluggish or congested skin.”

I’m in a love/hate relationship with Brazened Honey, and while it may not be a LUSH favorite of mine, it certainly is still a mask to check out if your face is oily and congested. Here’s why.  Continue reading

My Winter Skin Saviors

Image Brr! Baby, it’s cold outside! I don’t know about you, but all of this snow, hail, wind and rain is not what my skin ordered. I’ve been extremely diligent about making sure my skin is moisturized and free from dry patches, and so far I’ve succeeded. Last year was a different case, and it seemed as if my skin would permanently be red, dry and irritated. I refused to let dry skin get the better of me and I came up with a regimen that my skin adores. These are just a few of my favorites! Continue reading

Face Mask Friday-LUSH The Sacred Truth

Image

What LUSH says: “Can you handle the truth? The truth is, your skin needs more regular maintenance and care as you get older. As you age, your dermis is thinning, losing its elasticity and ability to retain moisture, which can make the skin appear dull or sallow. Don’t fret! Taking care is easy thanks to this nutrient-packed mask. The Sacred Truth contains a powerful combination of rich, softening ingredients like linseed, eggs and shea butter to deeply moisturize and nutritious wheat grass, papaya, green tea and ginseng root to restore essential vitamins and brighten skin.”

Oh man has it been a long time since I’ve had a Face Mask Friday post! I’ve missed it! How’s your skin looking? A little dull? Lack luster? Needs a little somethin’ somethin’? LUSH has got what you need! Dull skin beware, you’ve met your match.  Continue reading

But really, these are purely made of sin.   Continue reading
