Lush Skincare Haul


It's not new news that I'm obsessed with looking after my skin, I've always had a good routine full of good products and it's certainly paid off, proven by the fact I only get about 3 spots a year, probably hormonal. 
All my skincare was running extremely low and it was time to stock up on a new cleanser, toner, mask and moisturiser. I had tried a sample of the Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel from Space Nk and loved it, so that was the cleanser in question, which I'll review separately later on. 

I've avoided Lush products for a very long time, fearing they'll upset my sensitive skin, but when I saw that they'd released a coffee scented mask, I just thought why not? The worst that could happen is that I'll go red for a while and burn and I could wash it off. I usually only trust skincare from Space Nk. so this is a huge move for me, it'll also be a money saving one if they work well.

But thank GOD that isn't the case at all, I came home after work, applied my Oskia gel and then went in first with the Mask Of Magnaminty I wanted to try this first because it's the largest pot, and I've seen so many YouTubers such as JustJodes talk about how much they love it.
This mask was so refreshing, it felt like it totally deeply cleansed my skin and drew out loads of rubbish, my skin was left super cool, soft and my pores had minimized. This mask also has an amazing soothingly cool scent and it didn't irritate my face at all.
I applied this to my body in the bath the following night and again, I felt incredibly clean and soft and refreshed, it didn't fire up any irritation at all which I am extremely pleasantly surprised about. This mask reminds me a lot of the REN Invisible Pores Detox Mask. It's a thick green paste that should be left on for 10-15 minutes.


Next I grabbed the Cupcake mask out of the fridge, which again is a thick brown paste that literally looks like somebody smothered poo all over your face, but it smells much nicer. This is the mask that I think has the least effect, it didn't make any noticeable change, but it's just a nice mask to apply but I'm not overly impressed, thankfully I only got the small tub of this.

Another from the fridge is Catastrophe Cosmetic, a thinner texture and the ingredients make it smell and feel really cool and refreshing. It feels like it really soothes my skin and I feel like it would be a great mask to apply if your face was burning up or irritated. It's also the easiest to wash off and the least exfoliating, it's very gentle. Again, it left my face feeling clean, smooth and generally just with a nicer texture. I feel like this mask will be a joy to apply when I'm hungover to really perk my skin back up and restore it back to tip-top condition.

Last but certainly not least, a new mask from Lush and my second favourite of the bunch, Cup' O Coffee.  
I am a huge coffee lover, so the smell of this makes me so happy, it smells like super strong coffee like the type you'd find at Starbucks. (Which makes me even happier.)
This is very exfoliating, it feels like it almost removes a layer of old skin and brings out this fresh and much softer new one.
It can feel very rough because of all the coffee grains in it that act as the exfoliant, but it didn't irritate my face because I ensured I washed it off as gently as possible.


Of course, I could not do a Lush haul at this time of year and NOT buy a bottle of the Snow Fairy shower gel, this is a must have and I ensure I get a bottle every year. If you haven't tried this yet, go and get it. This is the most incredibly smelling shower gel you'll ever use I promise.

I'm a sucker for Tea Tree products, it's one of those things you love or hate. Although this toner 'Tea Tree Water,' is for spot prone skin and that's not my skin at all, I got it anyway just because I love Tea Tree and I haven't had anything with it in for a long time.
This bottle is huge so it's going to last me a log time, I like to freshen up with a little spritz in the middle of the day, and I apply it with a cotton pad at night when I go through with my skincare routine. It's incredibly refreshing, it's like a breath of fresh air for your skin and even after cleansing it manages to draw out more rubbish. I do wish it was a little more moisturizing but I did chose this knowing it wasn't for my skin type anyway.

Last, but certainly not least, I picked up Dream Cream, which is sold as a body and hand lotion but I have been loving it as a facial moisturiser aswell.
I have a post just solely about this amazing cream coming soon so I won't talk anymore about it here because this post is long enough.
