I haven’t been to LUSH in some time so I’ve decided to go and get something as a part of my Birthday treat. I’ve picked up one Christmas set with a big discount (obviously) and Rub Rub Rub.
I haven’t tried the Northern Lights soap yet but I’ve used other products several times already and want to share my opinion.
Rub Rub Rub
I personally really loved this scrub as it is such a multi-purpose product. You can use it as a scrub on a dry body, mixed with water as a scrubbing shower gel for a more gentle effect or as… shampoo!
Although it does say that you can use it on your hair I don’t think I would ever do it unless a recommendation from a friend. And, wow, I was actually really impressed with the results.
Actually when I’ve asked a lady at LUSH for her favourite product – she pointed at Rub Rub Rub. And it is lovely. Leaves the body soft and clean when used as a scrub and leaves the hair shiny and light when used as a shampoo.
The only minus is that it won’t last you for a very long time. I am through half of the bottle in less than a month. I will definitely re-purchase this product at some point.
Do you have a Lush scrub recommendations?
This is actually a seasonal shower gel but
It’s time for June’s favourites, and somehow this time it is all about Clarins. I have bought quite a few products from the brand and have been sent some samples, and most products were incredible. After all it is one of my favourite brands for a reason. There are also two beauty tools, self tanning drops and bath salts.
Here we go.
Let’s start with makeup, as there are only two products that really stood out to me. Technically three, but two are the same product just different shades. Clarins Blush & Bronzing Compact (review and swatches) my love for this bronzer is still going strong. Now that I have a tan it looks amazing on, warms up the complexion and adds some definition.
As for the Clarins Waterproof Eyeshadow Shimmering Cream Colour (review and swatches) they are phenomenal, as I’ve already said. Extremely long-lasting and incredibly beautiful on the eyes. Just make sure you don’t apply too much, as they can look a bit dry. I’ve been wearing 03 Silver Taupe at the end of May and beginning of June when I still had a very pale complexion but now 04 Copper Brown is my favourite. It looks perfect now, am I a bronze goddess already?
Kind Natured, an affordable natural brand (it is promised that the products are free of Sulphates, Parabens and Petrochemicals; and are 97% natural in general) brought out two new lines recently, and I was kindly sent some products to try out.
Two new ranges are:
- Shea & Macadamia – described as deeply nourishing and formulated for very dry skin.
- Coconut & Monoi – described as moisturising and formulated for normal and dry skin
Each line has three products so far: Foaming Sugar Scrub (£5.99), Body Lotion (£5.99) and a Hand Cream (£4.99).
So what are my thoughts?
First of all, I think it was a clever idea to bring out the scented products at this time of year when we all are a bit tired of the cold months and crave the sun. Both lines have that sweet exotic scent, and make me personally think of a summer holiday and cocktails on the beach, they are like a summer-in-a-bottle. Although the
Today I want to share about my latest discovery which I love and recommend – Frank Body, Australian brand, and their Cocoa Coffee body scrub in particular.
Before I talk about the product, I just wanted to mention that the brand has gotten every little detail thought through. A cool story about five friends who came up with this idea, quirky fun, and sometimes naughty, which always gets a thumbs up from me, descriptions and pretty design and colours [of the packaging].
In our time and age, when we mostly buy experience, this is crucial, and people behind Frank Body clearly understand that.
There are a few scrubs to choose from over at Cult Beauty (100g – £7.95; 200g – £13.95) Original, Coconut, Peppermint and Shimmer which all come in different colour packaging and with different fun blurbs. The one I have comes in a pretty lilac waterproof bag and has a chocolate cake reference. I’ve just transferred some scrub to a pretty pot I’ve had.
What about the scrub itself?
Today I want to share about the product which was mentioned in my summer beauty favourites.
And it’s a Soaper Duper Ginger Root & Eucalyptus Salt Scrub. I’ve bought quite a few products from the brand recently, and really loved all of them, however, the scrub really stood out to me.
While retailing for only £12, it feels like a luxury high-end product but for the fraction of the price. The texture, the smell, the results, everything is just brilliant about this scrub.
I am a
