Don't Look At ME ;)

Today I will be reviewing the super awesome ‘Don’t Look at me’ face mask from LUSH. β€ͺ#β€ŽLush‬

This vivid pastel blue face mask, unlike the general powdery or creamy masks, is a gritty moist mask with ingredients like ground rice, murumuru butter, silken tofu and zingy lemony fresh smell.

This is a fresh mask and is available only from Lush stores.
The gritty ground rice particles scrubs away all dirt and grime but since the particles are not fine, it has to be massaged gently.

Smear the mask directly to cleansed face and let it dry. It doesn’t dry out to the point that it becomes flaky. This just sits as a thin creamy layer on the face. Wash away with warm water after gently massaging for additional scrubbing action. The skin feels really smooth, visibly brighter and squeaky clean. The lime fragrance is like a splash of freshness after a tiring day and just wakes up the skin in no time.

It did not dry out my skin but I have read reviews that said it was a bit drying on sensitive skin.

Now the only disappointing thing is that you have to use it up pretty fast as this being a fresh mask. The expiry was around after 20 days as I had bought it after few days of preparation.

Juicy Chemistry : Choco-Vanila Body Butter

#β€Žjuicy_chemistry‬ My favorite body butter for winter. My tub is already over.

Product : Choco vanilla body butter.

 

juicy2

Price : 400 INR for 50g. Now I noticed that the price is not written on the tub.

Product claims : Moisturises and nourishes, protects from sun damage, aroma therapeutic.

Smell : It is a blend of chocolaty vanilla smell…very different from the smell of normally available cocoa containing products.

Packing : Out of all the natural handmade products I have bought so far, juicy chemistry stands tall in terms of packaging. Each product even though bubble wrapped is enclosed in a very sleek looking black packet.
Also product comes in a light plastic tub and juicy chemistry provides a cute wooden spoon to take the product without contaminating it with your fingers.
Aweeeesomeee!!!

Ingredients : It is made of all natural butters- coco, Shea and essential oils- jojoba, sweet almond, vanilla, coconut, olive, vit-e oils.

Feel : Perfect for winters. As you can see the swatch, it easily melts on contact with skin and spreads evenly. A bit oily in the beginning but once blended leaves the skin smooth and soft.

I got this body butter from them last year. Since then I have bought products from them thrice. This is a great product. Especially the smell, as it lingers for a long time. I feel it is more apt for winters as I prefer light creams for summer.
For summers you can try other variants of body butter from the brand : they offer a lot of varieties.

As you use up the butter, you get these dark chocolate bits (see the swatch below). It just melts on skin and nourishes and gives a glow to skin over a period of time. I am not quite sure of the sun damage claim as this didn’t really protect my skin from tanning and there is no SPF mentioned in the tub. But I guess the natural oils has the protection factor in it that soothes the skin on exposure to sun.

My first tub is over. Can’t wait to try the other body butter variants from the brand smile emoticonsmile emoticon

This was my very first purchase from Gayatri who is the owner, artisan and proud mother of cute little Georgia.

And let me tell you, there are only pros that follows in this review and no cons. The ingredients list and quality of this soap justifies the price.

Smell: Divine cocoa chocolate smell. Alternative to bathroom fresheners πŸ˜‰ as the fragrance just lingers in the air when kept open.

Feel : It is an exfoliating bar that is highly moisturising as well as it has cocoa, milk, cream and liquid silk. Lathers well and doesn’t dry out the skin.
The exfoliating particles on it are not harsh on skin and gently cleanses away dry dead skin.

It lasted me almost a month.

The luxurious smell and decadent feel of this bathing bar on skin is truly divine. You don’t need to moisturise your skin after using this, unless your skin type is very dry.

For my combination skin this was a treat. My friend used it as well after my recommendation and she loved it.

VERDICT : Super awesome <3 <3 <3
