Anyone who knows anything about makeup knows how good skin and hair plays a very important part of our overall look! Not just makeup, whether its hitting puberty or ageing they bring about different kinds of issues which makes our nights sleepless and days restless. Now the key is using the right products, taking care of our skin and hair, getting regular facials and treatments. But with the kind of busy lifestyle we all have, it gets almost impossible to actually relax and pamper ourselves. #Sadlife!
SO, what to do?
Let’s get on with the skin part first. It’s a MUST to have a TCM routine before going to bed. That is toning, cleansing and moisturizing. Trust me on this one, when I say that following this routine does makes a huge difference to your skin especially in the long run like 20-30 years down the line when we will be becoming grannies.
There has been a lot of buzz of LUSH! The international brand which makes fresh handmade products with fresh and natural ingredients. I being a major sucker of all things natural and using my kitchen supplies on my skin time to time, just had to try these products. So I got their 9 to 5 cleansing lotion and Breath of fresh air toner water.
Lush 9 to 5 Cleansing Lotion
This amazing cleansing lotion is made of orchid extract and almond oil. Almond oil is overall really good for skin, it removes dark circles and brightens complexion. I cannot begin to explain how amazing this product is. Just a bit of it on a cotton ball is enough for my face and even neck. It removes all the dirt and excess oil instantly, leaving it all pure and clear. HELLO, GORGEOUS GLOW! ;).Plus the smell is oh-so-good, just like fresh flowers.
However, this product is quite gentle on the skin and if you want to use it as a makeup remover then it might take 2 to 3 applications, which I feel can be a waste of too much product.
Breath Of Fresh Air Toner Water
This actually feels like real water as it’s so light and mild on the skin. As if I dipped the cotton ball in water and used it to tone my skin except that the water smells like ROSES. YES!! I use it after the cleansing lotion and my skin feels instantly fresh. But you know what the best part is? You can use it anytime of the day. For a quick cleans, spray the toner on a cotton ball and just use it to clean your skin. TADA!!! Fresh and healthy skin ready to flaunt! 😉
Also, one amazing thing about it is, this can be used for aromatherapy. Sounds like a package? Spray on your bed before going to sleep or on your couch while watching your favorite movie and smell and feel amazing all day long.
Don’t spray a lot on the cotton pad as it can leave the skin a bit sticky. Just one spray is enough to tone.
LUSH products expire early as they are made up of natural and fresh ingredients. Some of their fresh masks are to be used within 3 to 6 weeks so please do your research before buying. However, these two are best used within a year!
R&B Hair Moisturizer
I think it’s still a new concept here in our country to use hair masks and moisturizer. It did really fascinate me as I was dying to try one since ages but thanks to me being a lazy caterpillar all the time I delayed it. It was high time now, I read amazing reviews of this one on the internet and decided to order it and give a new life to my hair. BTW, is it just me? Or do you all have bad hair days 5 days a week?
This hair moisturizer is basically for very thick, curly and frizzy hair but can be used for straight or dry hair too. I have some frizz in my hair 🙁 so it sounded like a safe purchase. OKAY SO I FELL IN LOVE. In all honesty I haven’t been using it as regularly as the other two products but it’s an amazing product. I take a pea size bit on my palm rub it well and smooth it over on my shampooed and conditioned hair. The packaging says use on dry hair but it works just as fine on wet hair too. The moisturizer is like a thick paste. Once it dries, my hair are so soft, smooth, easier to comb not at all tangled (the best part) and I can rub my fingers through them quiet easily.
And I don’t want to sound like a psycho because this is for like the 100th time I’m going to write about how amazing the smell. Your hair will smell like roses and lavenders all day long which I’m sure can keep anyone feel refreshed.
Dear ones, you got to take a little amount of it on your hands. Using a lot of it will make your hair look sticky, as if you just oiled them.
