LUSH Routine: Banish those blemishes

After an in-depth twitter chat about tackling my ever changing problematic skin, Freya from norsesouth (one of my favourite bloggers btw) suggested I try ultrabland; a thick cleanser made with almond oil, rosewater and honey just to name a few of the naturally good ingredients. I’d liken the cleanser to a really thick lard-like consistency and you only need to use a teeny-weeny bit. I use the cleanser to wipe away makeup, simply by rubbing it into my skin and then wiping it away with a warm damp cotton pad. I use it to freshen up my skin too, it doesn’t leave my skin feeling sticky or oily at all which is a double thumbs up for me!

After wiping away the cleanser, I spray a toner called breath of fresh air onto a cotton pad and wipe over my face. The toner is said to be the sea breeze captured in a bottle and I’d definitely vouch for that as my skin feels soft and fresh afterwards. The seaweed and rose extracts help to reduce the red patches on my cheeks and it’s a lovely little refreshing pick-me-up during the day too.

To finish up this routine I’ll be purchasing celestial ASAP. I used a little tester pot and loved it, the consistency was thick but a little went a long way. It didn’t make my skin any oiler either. YAyyyyyyy

Do you have any skin products that you swear by?! I’d love to know!

    Lush toners are the best! I've been using them for years and they definitely leave your skin all fresh 🙂

    That cleanser sounds so good! I'm not so interested in their bath bombs and that but I'd like to try Lush's skincare, it always sounds really nice x

    I swear by Elemis Facial Sensitive Wash and Nivea Regenerating Night Cream – they're amazing!

    I've heard amazing things about Ultrabland, I'll definitely have to try it out! The only thing I've purchased from Lush's skincare range is their masks, but I'd love to try more of their range soon.

    My biggest problem is crazy dry skin. I've been into Kiehl's for consultations a few times, I'll have to give Lush a go! x

    Breath Of Fresh Air is a fantastic toner, works wonders on my skin! I use Let The Good Times Roll instead of Ultrabland and the moment and I love both x

    i actually just picked up the ultrabland cleanser because one of my friends got a christmas job at lush and hooked me up with her discount! i've not tried it just yet because i want to try and use up at least one cleanser before i open anything new but i've heard so many good things about it and it smells lovely.
