I popped into Lush after almost 2 years because I wanted to stock up on an old favorite. Back then, I bought the Lush Breath of Fresh Air Toner and I really liked it and I kept saying to myself I would stock up but I had other toners to use so it didn't happen until a few weeks ago. This time around I didn't end up buying it rather I was convinced by the ladies who work there to try the Tea Tree Toner as my skin is prone to acne and it is a bit on the oily side. I listened to them and also picked up the Lush Grease Lightning Spot Treatment which I had heard many good things about.
I am pretty sure you have already heard about Lush but it won't stop me from rambling a little bit about their background in case there is an off chance that someone here has never heard of them. They are a cruelty free beauty and skin care brand which specialise in mainly skin care items ranging from Bath soaps, Bath Bombs, Spot Removers, Toners, etc. All products are handmade is brilliant.
Lush Tea Tree Toner
As mentioned earlier, I had already tried the Breath of Fresh Air Toner which I really liked but I was keen to try something new and this toner was highly recommended by the Sales ladies.I like the packaging because it’s black and really stands out from all other packaging. However, as expected with all black/opaque packaging, you can’t see how much product you have left so you have to guess or estimate. It smells of Tea Tree Oil which is its main ingredient but it’s not an over powering scent. I use this straight after cleansing and it is really refreshing. Sometimes, I spray it directly on my face and other times, I spray it on a cotton pad and swipe it across my face. Tea Tree oil in itself has numerous benefits for the skin including reducing inflammation and redness that accompany acne and it also helps clear the acne. It does exactly what it says but I won’t go as far as saying it works really fast. It is an effective and natural way to help keep the skin free from nasties and I find it really refreshing on my skin.
Lush Grease Lightning Spot Treatment
I have seen this floating around a few blogs and I thought it was about time I tried it for myself. I was not disappointed. It come in a smaller bottle compare to the toner but it also has a pump which is really handy. In addition to it Tea Tree Oil content, it also contains Grape Juice, Aloe Vera , Seawater, Rosemary and Thyme which all have various functions ranging from antibacterial to antiseptic to acne/spot blasters. I really love the combination of ingredients because it treats the acne and also helps nourish the skin around. many spot removers end up drying out the spot and the skin around the area but that;s not the case with the Lush Grease Lightning as it leaves the area really smooth and soft while effectively treating the spot. The only snag is it may take a longer time to clear the spot completely compared to other fast acting spot treatment gels. The product itself has a gel-like consistency so it is rather easy to apply. I rally don't have anything bad to say except the length of time it takes to work compared to others I have tried but the fact that the ingredients are natural and handmade scores it really high points in my books.
I am really pleased with my purchase and I think Lush products are fantastic. Their Tea Tree Oil range is super for acne and combination/oily skin which is what I have so I have no complaints with it. I guess they are never going to change their packaging because it 's their signature look so I can stop complaining about not knowing when the product finishes or not. See you in my next post..toodles...x
