Review: Lush Fresh Handmade Cosmetics | Sensitive Skin

Hello hello,

I hope everyone had a lovely first day of 2018; I still can’t believe the year is over, how can we stop time?! I had an amazing NY night with the soundest bunch of people, one night I’ll never forget. But I was a little hungover today and I noticed my face was looking a bit dull so I went for a nice 30 minute walk on the prom and then treated my skin to a nice exfoliation and a mask. I know this brand has become very popular in the last year or two so I had to try it out. I purchased these two products in America when I was there in September so I’ve been using them for 4 months. Again, they are perfect for sensitive, dehydrated skin.

I had no make up on today so I proceeded to take a chunk of the Let The Good Times Roll Exfoliator, added a couple of drops of water and gently massaged it onto my face. It’s made out of maize flour, polenta and a popcorn topping and combined with glycerin and corn oil to leave skin moisturised yet polished and clean. The texture is quite grainy but soft. And it smells yummy. I use more pressure around areas where I think there is built up of oil and impurities so in places like around my nose and my chin. I do this for a minute and wash it off.


I then applied this Lush Hunny Boon Jelly Mask. When the girl at the counter recommended a mask in jelly form I didn’t really know how it was going to work but it’s so cool I love it. I just take a small amount of it and rub it between my hands and it starts to sort of melt and you just apply it all over your face and leave it on for 10 mins. This is perfect for us poor creatures with dehydrated and irritated skin. It has a lot of soothing ingredients in there like white rose, chamomile and vanilla while the honey syrup locks in the moisture. I then wash it off with a hot cloth.


Trust me your skin will feel so soft, moisturised and plump. They retail between 11-13 euro – proper cheap! Also when you walk into one of their stores, you might confuse it for a candy shop or something because it literally smells so good inside and their displays are just out of this world! My boyfriend actually asked me whether some of it was edible. I was like no, no you can’t eat soap…..

P.S you can buy Lush products on their US website or for my Irish readers they have a store in Dublin (33 Henry Street).

Have a brilliant week everyone,
