My go to Autumn Skin Care…
It’s that time of year again where along with the change in weather comes a change in my skin and if I don’t do something about it quick I am left with the most awful breakouts. With many of us girls facing the same problems I thought I’d share some of my favourite skin care products with you which help me through these colder month! And yes they are all from Lush, I love the natural ingredients they use and how they feel on my skin, the fact that they all smell so amazing is just an added bonus.
Movis facial soap
As a rule I don’t use soap on my face, I hate the way it makes my skin feel dead tight and itchy but this cleansing facial soap is amazing. It helps tackle my oily t-zone but doesn’t dry out the rest of my skin too much. I’ve always found it hard to find a good cleanser that works for me, having spot prone combination skin, they always seem to dry my face out too much. Since the Movis facial soap is made with cocoa butter it really helps nourish the skin leaving if feeling refreshed. When I wake up in the morning all I need to do is lightly wet the soap and rub it on my face before rinsing it off with some warm water. There are two sides to the soap, one is slightly smoother for a lighter exfoliation. This product also has antiseptic properties in it which has helped clear my skin up and keep those spots at bay. Not only does this cleanser feel amazing on your skin it also smells amazing like freshly baked sweet bread.
This product is really good for dry/combination skin especially in the winter. Once a day, after I’ve cleansed I’ll use a pea sized amount to hydrate my skin, on day’s when my cheeks may be feeling extra dry I tend to build it up a little bit. I wouldn’t recommend it though for anyone who suffers from oily skin or during the summer for anyone who like myself has combination skin as it is super hydrating. I find a lot of moisturisers tend to feel like they’ve left a greasy coating on my face but this one doesn’t seem to do that for me. What’s great about this product is that it’s suitable for sensitive skin so doesn’t cause me to break out. As with most of Lush products it also smells amazing!
Mask of Magnaminty self-preserving
I absolutely love this one, it is brilliant for clearing up my spots and brightening up my skin! It has to be my favourite Lush product. I use this facial mask all year round as it makes my skin feel so amazing every time. Once or twice a week I’ll generously apply it all over my face, leave it for about 10 minutes then wash it off with warm water. Being made with peppermint oil it has a strong minty smell to it, I love that as it makes my skin feel so fresh but I can imagine if you don’t like mint then this may be off putting. Due to it being self-preserving it keeps itself clean making it last longer – I highly recommend this product as its such good value for money.
