LUSH Love Lettuce

Sorry for so many LUSH posts! They don't exactly have the longest shelf life and I want to review them while they're still fresh in my mind :)

WHERE TO BUY:, lush stores/counters

MY THOUGHTS: I got this as a freebie when buying some other products, so I wasn't expecting too much from it. It smells like a combination of lavender and vegetables. It sounds weird but it's not too offensive. You have to keep it stored in the fridge since it's as fresh as food. It's kind of a hassle to have to run down to the kitchen when I need it, but the coldness feels really soothing. It's spreads onto my face easily and has little scrubby bits that exfoliate as you rinse it off.

My skin is left feeling clean, calm, and smooth. The face mas
ks that I've used before made me break out in a pimple or two the next day. I always just figured it was my skin purging itself of impurities. Love lettuce didn't make me break out at all which is awesome. It expires within 3 weeks which is kind of a downer; but that's the price you have to pay for fresh and natural, right?

- Applies easily
- Makes my skin feel clean and smooth
- Doesn't irritate my face or make me break out
- Affordable
- Fresh

- Only has a shelf life of 3 weeks
- Must be stored in the fridge

Silly picture! -_O

LUSH Creamy Candy Bubble Bar

WHERE TO BUY:, lush stores/counters
PRICE: $6.65

MY THOUGHTS: This bubble bar smells amazing. It's sweet like cotton candy and bubblegum. The bar itself is kind of small. I used half of it for one bath and it made tons of big, fluffy bubbles. At first, it made the water a milky light-pink color. Unfortunately, the color disappeared really quickly. It was gone less than 5 minutes in. Although the scent doesn't linger on my skin, it does linger in the bathroom. My bathroom still smelled strongly of creamy candy the next day which was a nice surprise. Overall, the scent and bubbles are enough to make me repurchase.

- Smells good
- Made tons of bubbles
- Scent lingers in the bathroom

- Scent doesn't really linger on my skin

- Color disappears quickly

LUSH Comforter Bubble Bar

WHERE TO BUY:, lush stores/counters
PRICE: $8.75

MY THOUGHTS: This is my first time using a bubble bar from LUSH. I crumbled a piece into the running water as soon as I started filling the bath. It has a yummy berry scent which smells fruity and sweet. It turns the water a cute pink color. The scent doesn't linger very long afterwards on my skin, but it does linger in the bathroom. I don't take baths very often but this made it fun. I like it! Although this is one of the more pricier bubble bars, it's also one of the biggest. The website says that 1 bar is good for two baths; I only used 1/4 of the bar and it made tons of bubbles! At around $9, you can get at least 4 baths out of it.

- Smells yummy
- Made tons of bubbles
- Turns the water pink
- Good value
- Scent lingers in the bathroom afterwards

- Scent doesn't really linger on my skin

Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion

WHERE TO BUY: & some drugstores (their website has a store locator)

PRODUCT CLAIMS: Skin MD Natural is a shielding lotion, a very special type of lotion helping the skin restore its integrity, enhance its protective functions so that the skin is able to heal naturally and regain its youthful appearance. Skin MD Natural works by bonding with cells of the skin's outermost layer to form what works as an invisible shield. This layer of protection prevents environmental irritants and pollutants from penetrating the skin, while sealing in the skin's own natural oils and moisture, helping resolve the dry skin condition.

MY THOUGHTS: This lotion moisturizes really well, feels light, doesn't smell, and sinks in quickly. It's made with natural ingredients which makes it ideal for people with sensitive skin. This lotion also claims to help people with problems like eczema. I don't have any particular skin conditions, so I can't say whether or not it helps based on my experience.

The only con is the price. The bottle is small compared to other lotions like Aveeno or Nivea and costs 3 times as much. This is fine if you use it for your face or your hands, but a bit too pricey as a body lotion. If your skin can't tolerate regular lotions, then I think this is worth a try.

My favorites ways to use this:

- I applied this to my face before putting on my makeup and my skin felt so smooth. I felt like I didn't need a primer anymore. I've also mixed this with my foundation to make a tinted moisturizer.

- I absolutely hate the feeling of a greasy lotion inbetween my fingers. It's kind of one of my pet peeves. This stuff feels light and sinks in quickly, so I can use it on my hands without a problem.

- Moisturizes well.
- Makes my skin feel super smooth.
- Feels light, not greasy at all.
- Sinks in quickly.
- Made with natural ingredients.
- Gentle enough for sensitive skin.
- Doesn't have a strong smell.

- Expensive. Price is a big factor for me. One bottle is only 4 oz and costs $18.

Dreams About Makeup, Formspring

Have you ever actually had a dream about makeup? Just this week I dreamt that my MAC 187 broke. It just fell apart. The bristles fell out and the ferrule was torn off. I guess I would classify that as a nightmare, haha.


Also, it seems like everyone is using formspring now-a-days. It might come in handy since I do get questions every once in a while. It can be about makeup or anything random. I'll answer as long as it isn't crazy personal. I'm not gonna tell you guys my address or anything, haha. You can put your name or remain anonymous.
