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 doesn’t really matter if you celebrate Valentine’s Day or not, any reason to get a lill’ treat for yourself or someone else would work, right?
So here are just a few ideas of what you could get! By the way, I plan to make my own beauty wish list this weekend, so will definitely share next week.
Illamasqua brought out a set with wicked reds called I am the One which retails for £50 and includes four products: two of them are new actually – Intense Lip Gloss in Touch, Lip Colouring in Feisty, and two best-sellers – Nail Varnish in Throb and Lipstick in Maneater.
I personally love myself some Lush for VDay, in fact,
Love it or hate it, but VDay is this weekend. For me this is a very special day, as on 14th of February I wrote my first feature for Makeup4all. And it was 7 years ago! Time flies…
But back to the beauty releases. Here are some that are worth your attention. Of course, you can always get anything from any new collection but these were created just for the Valentine’s Day.
Bobbi Brown Brown Red and Pink Collection. There are lip glosses, nail polishes and lipsticks in red and pink. Above you can see Rich Lip Colors (£20) in Ibiza Pink and Blazing Red. You can get these from Selfridges and Nordstrom.
Being a rose fanatic, I wouldn’t mind getting this for myself, ha! Diptyque Eau Rose Roll-On limited edition (available from Space NK for £65 and $150 from Neiman Marcus for 100 ml). The notes are: Bergamot, Lychee, Rose, Cedar, Musk. The print for this LE was created by Olympia Le-Tan.
Lush always bring out a collection to celebrate love. I like the look of
I am very happy to share that today Makeup4all turns 9, it is as if I wrote this feature about it turning 5 yesterday. I honestly can’t believe it. So much has changed since that time. Considering that it is also Valentine’s Day, I though I would share some features that are appropriate for the occasion. And for me VDay means red and roses, not like any other day is different.
Everything You Need To Know About Red Lipstick (here). I have written so many articles about red lipsticks over the years, and that is just a round up. And if you are wondering about my current favoruite red – that is this one.
And let’s not forget about the red Nail Polishes (here). Especially about
It’s that time again when I share my seasonal favourites. Here is a look at my Summer picks, in case you’ve missed it. And here is what I’ve been loving this Autumn.
- Victoria Beckham Beauty eye makeup as seen here. I’ve been looking forward to the launch of the VB Beauty line, and picked up the eye products the day they launched, and was not disappointed. I have a very detailed review (linked above) so won’t repeat myself. While I did not pick up anything else, I am excited to see what else Victoria is going to launch. There is definitely a foundation coming our way.
2. Darphin Intral Environmental Lightweight Shield SPF 50, ( Space NK, John Lewis ) probably the best city spf I’ve ever used. Lightweight and slightly tinted, it is not greasy or oily at all, gives you that healthy glow and protects the skin. Darphin is one of my favourite beauty brands in general, and this product is not an exception.
