Welcome to the third part in the ongoing series on Lush Cosmetics, a newfound favorite of my group of best friends. Today’s recommendations come from Ryann, who’s the ring leader to blame for our love of Lush. You can read the other parts here: 1 & 2. Keep reading to find out which Lush products Ryann recommends!
As the best friend who first recommended Lush to Nikki, I’ll admit it was not long ago that I had no idea what Lush was. I first heard of the company when a nail blog mentioned the awesomeness of Lemony Flutter cuticle cream. I have awful cuticles, so I wanted to try it, but (surprise, surprise) there was no Lush store in Columbia, Missouri.
But a few weeks later, I moved to San Diego, and made it a point to visit the Lush store just a few miles from my apartment. I bought my Lemony Flutter, and four months later, have deposited great sums of money into this store — but my face and skin has never looked better.
AI heartily recommend all of Nikki’s favorite products (especially Fresh Farmacy — seriously a lifesaver), and I have a few more to add. Like Nikki, I am not paid by Lush at all, but have flirted with the idea of getting a part-time job there just for a discount!
Breath of Fresh Air Toner ($8.95 for 3.3oz, $19.95 for 8.4oz) has aloe and seaweed it in, which is apparently very good for your face, but my favorite use for this spray is as a setter for my liquid foundation. It’s light, but believe me, it works!
Token to the Forest Gods Toner Tabs ($1.95 each) brings the facial experience to your home. I heat up a bowl of water in the microwave for 3 minutes, pop one of these babies in, put my face over the bowl with a towel over my head, and steam away. You can then save the water in a tupperware container as a toner — just keep in the fridge, for some reason. Pro tip: cut the tab in half before using, and use less water (I usually use 1/2 cup with 1/2 tab and it’s sufficient). More for your money!
Brazened Honey Fresh Face Mask ($6.95 for 2.1oz) is available online only. These masks are so fresh that you gotta keep ‘em in the fridge! I’ve tried every single fresh face mask (I think there are currently 9 or so), and Brazened Honey is my favorite. It’s like a detox for the skin, and has ground almonds in it for a gentle exfoliator. I can usually get 3 or 4 uses out of one pot, which costs about $6. Find out what masks will work best for your skin type, but my other favorites are Cupcake, Catastrophe Cosmetic and Ayesha. And save your black pots — 5 empty ones gets you a free face mask!
Have you tried any of these products? If not, would you? Share in the comments. I personally haven’t, but I plan to try out the Breath of Fresh Air Toner this month.
