I bought AOBS today: thanks to the many fab reviews here: and it was so refreshing when I washed my face with it tonight! My face feels a little tight now however, but it says to moisturise afterwards.
My friend bought me two of the bubble bars for my birthday. One called "Pop in the Bath " bubble bar. It smells beautiful, quite light and flowery. Kinda reminding me of baby talc.
The other is called " Sunny Side" bubble bar. It smells lovley, very citrusy (is that a word? lol) Only thing is, it is very glittery and when dry the glitter sticks to you. Once it is wet though, it doesn't stick and the water looks like golden lava.
i love lush! i go there a LOT.
just a few days ago i got:
Emperor of Ice Creme: its a buttercreme or something.. basically a bar of 85% body butter, its got orange, honey, and vanilla in it and its so nice! its going to last forever too, i can tell, just rub a bit on a loofah thing and youve got massive bubbles.
Heavenly Bodies: also a buttercreme, this one's chocolate and orange with little chocolatey shreds on the top, i've yet to use it.
MMM (Melting Marshmallow Momennts) - its pink, it smells great, and i havent used it yet! (a bath melt)
I'm currently trying Sweet Japanese Girl. I read all the reviews on makeupalley and seems quite mixed. I have dry/combo skin which has lots of raised comedones. Actually the first time I felt great. Second time I freaked out because I had so many more lumps than before...I'm not using it every day because apparently it's too strong to use. So I use every other day and give my skin a break inbetween. Anyway here's the amazing thing...I'm a squeezer I'll admit it. Anyway I've been staying away from my skin, just trying SJG. So there was this one big comedone on my forehead which usually I would have squeezed and then it would re-infect and I would get into a week or two of big cysts but...I left it, used the SJG and...yesterday the comedone had totally solidified and...I pushed it and...everything came out in a big lump! No bleeding, no nasties, nothing. It just popped out. I was really amazed...that has never happened to me before. I think what this stuff is doing is bringing all the scunge and nasties to the surface (and there are a lot of nasties on my skin)...so it will get a bit crap for a while and clear up. I don't even need to use moisturiser..it's a real revelation. We'll see how it goes
I feel really relaxed when I use SJG. I put a mirror on my knee and then sit under my desk lamp (which gets pretty warm) so I can see what I'm doing and it heats up my skin and the bar. I massage it in for about 10 minutes just because I find it so relaxing...it does get a weeeee bit messy...you can stop that by thoroughly cleaning your hands and using your hands to massage after a while instead of the bar.
My skin isn't particularly sensitive so..I don't know. I eithr hear people saying how great it is, or saying it wrecked their skin so it seems to be very divided.
Ok used SJG a bit more. Mythoughts...my forehead LOVES this stuff. It's clearing up my problem skin. My nose..doesn't like it. I'm starting to get a cyst. Is that because it's clearing out the gunk? Who knows. I'll keep using it and see.
