Lord of Misrule Shower Cream by Lush.

I’m a shower person. I’m not really into having baths, although I do like Lushs sex bomb and cinders bath bomb. 

I’m always looking for a shower gel/cream that can help soften my dry skin. However this wasn’t the reason for me buying Lord of Misrule. I brought it because it’s bright green! My favourite colour. Also I’ve been really into the scent of black pepper.

This smells……incredible. it smells very earthy, spicy and herbaly but slightly sweet which balances it all out. I’m so addicted to this scent and I can’t explain why. It lingires on my skin for ages which is nice and as I can keep smelling my skin through out the day!

I didn’t expect it to make my skin so soft but it does. All of Lushs other shower gels/creams haven’t really made an impact on my skin. Very impressed. Yesterday I brought the big bottle in the picture even though I’m not running out… its a limited item so want to make sure I have Pleanty to last me.

This scent won’t be to everybody’s taste but if you like green shower creams that smells spicy, give it a try before it runs out!

Bad hair day.

You guessed it, here’s another Lush review. Over the last few (4+) months I’ve noticed my hair has been acting out with bad split ends!

When I saw Shine So Bright I knew I had to try it. It is a hair balm for spilt ends with some great ingredients. Extra virgin coconut oil, Shea Butter, Free Range Eggs, all these ingredients I know work well with my hair.

I have a broken camera, sorry!

I love using this! Every morning after brushing my hair I warm a bit of this balm in my hands and rub it into my ends and my bangs/fringe to keep my hair soft. It has a beautiful orange scent to it which is very uplifting. I was worried it would make my hair look greasy but luckily it doesn’t.

I can’t say it repairs split ends (it doesn’t claim to) but I do feel I’m doing my hair some good by giving it as much nutrients as possible. I notice after using this my spilt ends do look less noticeable and healthier, win win !

Thanks for reading. X

Lush skin care update. Winter.

I went into Lush a while back with a few skin complaints. My skin was breaking out bad and my skin tone was uneven and bright red. I explained that my normal routine was a face wash (bioré which I love!) And tea tree toner water. She said she was concerned that I was striping my oils away.

She recommend Ocean Salt which I was very against. I like a good scrub but felt it would be too hydrating for my oily skin. When I tried it I was amazed, my skin felt smooth, clean and also soft with out feeling oily! I love this scrub as it has good effects on my skin and smells like a cocktail without alcohol, amazing. I use this twice a week. Ocean Salt is £7.95.

She also recommend Eau Roma toner water to spray over my face when I want to. This toner has lavender and rose water which helps hydrate my skin without over doing it, and keeps skin tone even. A perfect winter saviour ! I normally use this after I’ve washed my face, toned with Tea Tree water (i refuse to give it up) and done my make up. I use it before I leave the house and go into the winter weather. At £4.50 for 100g I think it’s great value.

After loving Ocean Salt I felt it was time to become more adventurous with skin care. I was always intreagued by Ultrabland. I had never tried it as the ingredients seemed too much for my skin. It has honey, beeswax and almond oil (for full list go on their website). It’s so fun to use, massage it onto dry skin then wash off with a damp cloth. Ultrabland made my skin feel so clean and so soft (again without feeling oily or sticky). The honey is good for spots as it’s an antiseptic so my spots have gone done and look better. The only con is I don’t like the smell at all, but luckily it doesn’t stay. I felt so confident in myself after using it I even got my boss to feel how soft my face felt, she was amazed ! I feel ultrabland is perfect for my skins needs. You can also double cleanse with this, I sometimes use bioré after. This cost me £7.50 for 45g and think it will last me ages!

Longleat Festival of Lights 2015.

I adore winter, always have. Something about the winter months I find romantic, perhaps beacuse i met J 6 years ago during winter. Last year my Grandparents (In Laws) gave J and I both Longleat passes. We were thrilled. The first thing we did was attend the festival of Lights as a family.

The festival of Lights is a Chinese celebration so of course the whole theme is Chinese myths/Beliefs etc.

Today J and I decided to head to it alone.. yet again I was so happy with it!
