A Simple Lush Routine For Stressed Skin

Lush skincare review

Whether its the colder weather or just bad luck, my skin has been stressed out of late. My routine has been fairly solid for a while now, with the odd new product coming in but it's not cleared up the sore under the skin blemishes that have been making their presence known for a few weeks. So I decided to add in some fail safe gentle bits from Lush to work their magic. It's been a while since I used Lush's skincare range so I'd forgotten how good it really is. I'm usually in there fighting my way through the school girls to get to the bath bombs and bubble bars!

I picked up an old favourite of mine, the Lush Ultrabland Cleanser. It's a thick and creamy cleanser which gently but very effectively dissolves makeup and leaves your skin clean yet comfortable. Almond oil helps hydration levels while leaving skin super soft and comforted. It also contains rose water which calms stressed skin and helps soothe it at the same time. There's also honey which acts as an antiseptic, clearing away any nasties and starting the healing process. This is definitely a first evening cleanse for me as it is relatively heavy and I like to massage a generous amount in and leave it to work its magic for a few minutes before removing with a warm flannel.

The Lush Ocean Salt Face and Body Scrub caught my eye as it's designed for both face and body. The name clearly gives away the key ingredient - salt, of which it contains rather coarse chunks to whisk away dry patches and leave your skin silky smooth. It's a bit more abrasive than what I'm use to, so certainly something to bear in mind, however it's cocooned in creamy avocado and coconut oil which are both rather nourishing and comforting to stressed skin.

Whenever my skin is stressed out I always raid my arsenal of face masks so I've been reaching for the Lush Oatifix Face Mask. This mask aims to hydrate skin and leave it soft and comfortable. It's a rather odd consistency and feels a little like you're smoothing cold lumpy porridge on your face but if you can get over that it will leave skin moisturised and happy. Oat actually acts as an antiseptic so it helps calm breakouts while banana adds a boost of hydration. It's one that needs to be kept in the fridge so the cool paste further extinguishes any irritation too.

What do you think of Lush's skincare range?
