Oh! Lush


I was in Lush a few weeks ago and picked up some toner tabs, BB Seaweed facemask and Breath of fresh air toner. When I go into Lush I always let them pamper me and try out everything they have to offer, plus you get a better feel of what's for you and maybe what you shouldn't be using on your skin.

I don't know about all their stores but the one in Leeds has the friendliest staff ever. I went in just over a year ago when my psoriasis was really bad and I had horrible red flaky patches all over my body and the girl that came up to me couldn't have been nicer! I was looking for things that wouldn't dry my skin out and not irritate the psoriasis. She grabbed loads of products and brought me over to a table and grabbed hold of my arms to test some of the products out, one of the first things she said to me was "is it psoriasis". Super chuffed, I don't even like looking or touching it when I have it and here was this relative stranger being lovely about it and not bothered by it at all. So I left very happy that day with a bag full of lovely natural products.

Anyway, back to these 3 lovelies... I couldn't decide which toner tabs I wanted so the girl explained what they all did and i ended up taking 2 of each (oops!). The facemask was next she grabbed about 5 different ones and asking me different questions about my skin and stuff she narrowed it down to 2 that we tried out to see which one I liked best. She did say that there isn't any point in them selling you a product you wont like or suit your skin because that's not what their about - which is fantastic I reckon. Countless times i've been into boots or somewhere and you almost feel pressurised into buying things both you and the staff know you don't want/need and let's be fair most of the time you might use them once of twice and then it gets stuffed into a drawer or thrown in the bin. waste.

So, the facemask! BB seaweed is the one I settled on as the other one left my skin feeling a bit tight. I'm loving this to be honest, I use it once (maybe twice) a week and it really wakens up my skin and leaves it glowing. There's huge chunks of seaweed in it which I think adds to the charm but I know some people don't really like this feature. All in all it's one of my favourite facemasks, but i'd really recommend getting into Lush yourself and testing some of the others out to see what suits you. I want the cosmetic warrior facemask after this BB seaweed runs out!


Lastly the toner, I haven't liked a toner since my Dior one ran out, I've tried at least 11 others since then and they just haven't fit. This one is number 2 out of all the ones i've tried, its really nice and calms my skin. It's a spray pump so you can spritz it onto some cotton wool and dab over your face or do what I do and take a deep breath and spray directly onto your face - the nozzle ensures it feels like being sprayed in the face with a water pistol - i quite like it, wakes me up in the morning!

Ophrys Skincare

If you have been following my blogs and social media you will have seen that I am currently partnering with Therapie Clinics and trying out their range of specialist facials to try and improve my skin. Alongside the facials (my second of which is coming up in April!) I have really tried to up my game with my skin care. Rather than just slapping everything that says hydration on I am really trying to target specific areas and problems.
This has not been without it's troubles as my sensitive skin tries to adjust to this higher level of care. As a result of this - and a few other internal factors - I have been experiencing a few more breakouts than normal but I have been coping with them better. It's all about the give and take.

And when it comes to the 'give' I was very lucky to be approached by Ophrys Skincare to talk about their new range of low molecular hyaluronic skincare with their patented Mini-Hax particle. "Low Ma-what?" I hear you say? Well... Low Molec…
