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!
