Bloggers made me buy it | LUSH haul

 Ok, I think I should start post series called 'Bloggers made me buy it'. Literally.

When it gets to skin care, LUSH is one of the favorite brands for many bloggers out there. Everytime I log in to my Bloglovin account, there will be at least one post about Lush products. And for a person like me, who is living under the rock, this post would be just a quick scroll down through the page. Until the day I've got three, yes THREE, nasty spots on my cheek next to each other. And you know those deep, painful, red, size of a pea spots? Yup, them ones. I thought I need to raise the bar and step out of my comfort zone. So I decided to trust all those bloggers and went on LUSH website to check what they have to offer. Oh sweet heaven, pretty much all of the products rated five stars? Too good to be true. Spent good few hours on the internet reading and making a list of the names I would like to check in store (I decided to pay a visit reading half way through the reviews). Next couple of hours and I am at the Lush store. Does anyone else gets super excited about a simple bar of soap or a teeny tiny tin of  lip scrub?

So where do I start? Ok, Lush store. Omg, where have I been all those years? 
First thing first, the design of the store and decorations - it makes you feel like tasting not testing everything. Those face masks and scrubs looks so delicious! The store staff were extremely helpful so they guided me to the right direction. I have told them my problems and we were standing there for about half an hour talking about what is good for what. I have learned so much! Thanks to those lovely people working there.

What did I get:

HERBALISM - Nettles, rosemary and rice bran vinegar work to cleanse the skin, removing dirt and grease, leaving bright and beautifully clean skin. Chamomile blue oil and rose absolute are used for balancing skin tone. Rice bran and ground almonds will gently exfoliate the skin and when mixed with water, the almonds create a soft cleansing milk. Our chlorophyllin is extracted from alfalfa, which is rich in vitamins and minerals and is great for revitalising the skin.

I have been using Herbalism for a week or so twice a day, I don't want to scream how awesome it is because in such a short amount of time you can't really tell much. But I can definitely say my skin is left so much cleaner after every wash and it healed those 3 nasty spots within 2 days. Very happy so far!

DARK ANGELS - This is for those of you who really like to scrub your skin to feel clean, with black sugar and charcoal to exfoliate, and rhassoul mud to deeply cleanse. We also use cold pressed avocado oil and vegetable glycerine to moisturise and soften your skin after all that scrubbing, leaving your skin feeling balanced and fresh. Sandalwood and rosewood oils give a rich, earthy fragrance and have a cooling and antiseptic effect on the skin. We buy our powdered charcoal locally in Dorset. It’s a great way to exfoliate and is deeply cleansing, whilst black sugar is in here to scrub away any dead skin cells, leaving you with bright, refreshed skin.

I only used this once and omg, that blackness freaked me out! haha First thing came to my head 'How am I going to wash this off my face?!'. But luckily it came off very easily (*phew*). My skin felt squeeky clean. I will be making full reviews on all of the products soon, so I will let you know the results.

AMERICAN CREAM - A milkshake-thick conditioner with a strawberries and cream fragrance to leave your hair soft and shiny. Fresh strawberries help cleanse the hair, and are rich in vitamin C. We've added a splash of orange juice to add gloss too, since its acidity makes the hairs' cuticles lie flat and allows it to reflect more light. To top it off, this contains soothing clary sage and calming lavender for your scalp.

I used this conditioner last night and I am not sure still if I liked it. I will keep using it everytime I wash my hair and see if I finally be able to say Yay or Nay.

HONEY I WASHED THE KIDS - A caramel-scented soap that lifts your mood and soothes and softens skin. Gentle enough to wash young skins, it’s like washing with crème brûlée in solid form. This soap contains mood-brightening sweet wild orange and bergamot oils as well as the soothing properties of honey and aloe vera gel.

Oh, this soap reminds me of my grandma for some reason. Smells like clean, just washed bed sheets. It's feels so creamy on the skin and lather up very well. This soap leaves my skin super soft after every wash!

SANDSTONE - An uplifting and skin-smoothing citrus soap that brings to mind the beaches of Brazil. Waves of sand and a lemony scent will transport you to a tropical beach, sipping seaside cocktails. We've used the incredibly uplifting litsea cubeba oil to wake up your mind, then wake up your skin with the sandy scrub. It's the perfect soap for summer, or whenever you want to feel bright and breezy.

The smell of this is amazing! So refreshing and kind of sour, I just love it. I think it's a lot better than any scrub I have ever used and it's so easy to apply and totally mess free. Tiny sand bits exfoliates really well, but if you have very sensitive skin this might be to harsh as it's damn painful sometimes! haha

TEA TREE WATER - Keep skin clear and refreshed. Tea tree is antibacterial, antifungal and antimicrobial, so can help keep away the bacteria that can cause spots. Grapefruit is rich in vitamins and is also lightly astringent on the skin, whilst juniperberry is antiseptic and helps keep skin clean and clear. Use any time of day to keep skin refreshed, or to remove traces of makeup or cleanser.

I love how refreshing this stuff is. I spray it directly on my face and wipe it off with cotton pad, it's not drying my skin. Skin feels very clean after every use.



Also, I bought DIRTY shaving cream for my boyfriend and he absolutely loves it! Lovely people at the store gave me few samples aswell, but my man took it all of me so I never got my hands on those cute little pots of goodies. As I mentioned earlier I will be making full reviews about all of those products soon. I will let you know if it worked for me, so stay tuned! Let me know your favorite LUSH product, I would love to try them all!
