|Haul Recap and reviews|
Now to the main attraction:
I wandered around the Lush website after tossing my Lemony Flutter in my cart and stumbled upon this. I have pretty oil skin and this boasts a power to keep that in check and help keep blemishes at bay. I have been a Salicylic Acid slave when it comes to face wash and I wanted to try to wean myself off it. When I didn't use it, my face would be a nightmare and it didn't keep hormonal outbreaks in check. The ingredients in this looked pretty promising. The Kaolin is supposed to draw impurities out while the Chamomile is supposed to soothe and serve as an anti-septic.
Ground Almonds (Prunus dulcis) , Glycerine , Kaolin , Water (Aqua), Lavender Oil (Lavandula hybrida) , Rose Absolute (Rosa centifolia) , Chamomile Blue Oil (Matricaria Chamomilla) , Tagetes Oil (Tagetes minuta) , Benzoin Resinoid (Styrax tonkinensis pierre), Lavender Flowers (Lavendula hybrida) , *Limonene , *Linalool
I have been using this for roughly one week now. My skin has broken out less and the cystic spots I had have shrunken much faster than normal. It was a learning curve adapting to using this. You pinch off a pea sized amount of the crumbly play-dough like cleanser and mix it with water in your hand to form a paste.
This paste is then your face wash. I dropped a lot at first until I learned to cup it in my left hand, add a smidgen of water and then use my right ring finger to work it into a paste. I then would quickly slap this on my face and scrub away. My face definitely felt smoother and nice after using this. It did feel a little filmy right after being rinsed off, but after a rub from my towel, this film was gone. In the winter, I might scrub a little less afterwards to leave some extra moisture on.
This product is great even though it can be a little messy and time consuming. I use mine in the shower so I don't have to worry about the mess. If you can get your hands on a sample, I would definitely recommend giving this a try!
