Two Lush products have found their way into my everyday skincare routine. Both of which have given me positive changes to my skin. The two Lush products that I am reviewing today are the face cleanser Aqua Marina and the Eau Roma toner water. Keep reading if you would like to know my thoughts on both products.
I was looking for a gentle face cleanser to clean my skin on days where I don’t wear make-up and do not need a full duty cleanser. When I do not wear make-up I try to treat my skin as gentle as possible and I wanted a gentle cleanser to be a part of such days. I knew right away that I wanted the cleanser to be from Lush and after reading some reviews I quickly decided I was going to go for Aqua Marina
Lush Aqua Marina / 100 g – €9,99
Lush – ”This creamy, gentle cleanser is designed to calm irritated, sensitive skin with skin-soothing ingredients like cooling aloe vera and lovely pink calamine powder in a cleansing kaolin clay base. We wrap it up in mineral-rich nori seaweed to nourish the skin and add a sprinkle of sea salt for a super gentle exfoliation”.
After taking of the lid you clearly see that this is a natural product and it does not look as smooth as drugstore cleansers. Aqua Marina is a light pink paste that looks and feels like soft clay. Mixed with the clay are thin leaves of seawead. I used this as is recommended by Lush. I wet my face, I take some clay with seaweed and rub it between my hands until it creates a creamy paste. Then I massage it on my face, leave it on for a few seconds and rinse it off.
After rinsing it off my face feels clean, but not squeeky clean and dry as most drugstore cleansers leave my skin. After washing it off I also see how it benefits sensitive skin. My skin looks incredibly calm and even in color. I usually tend to have some red spots on my face, but after using Aqua Marina these are minimized.
Aqua Marina is a perfect cleanser for sensitive skin types and for cleansing a skin that does not have make-up on. This is a product that I would buy again when I run out.
Lush Eau Roma Water / 100 g – €6,95
Lush – ”In a world of technology-loaded cosmetics, choosing a toner with just two active ingredients may seem unusual. But when those two ingredients work perfectly to calm, soothe, moisturize and balance skin, why use anything else? Rose water cools irritations and keeps redness at bay, while lavender helps to balance out the skin’s oils, leaving it feeling soft and supple. Eau Roma is simple, effective skincare at its best!”
Eau Roma Water has quickly become one of my favorite products to use on a daily basis. Lush calls this a ‘Toner Water’, but it is much more delicate for the skin than a actual toner, considering the fact that it does not contain alcohol. Eau Roma water is a fresh floral water and it’s main ingredients are Lavender and Rose water. Both of these are known for calming and soothing dry, red and sensitive skin.
The first ingredients listed on the ingredient list are indeed Lavender and Rose water which means that these are the main ingredients and you are buying a potent floral water. My skin is sensitive and I spray this water on my skin after the shower and during the summer I spray it on my face anytime I feel like I want to freshen up and lower my body temperature.
Spraying this on feels so good and incredibly refreshing. After the water has soaked into my skin I can truly see the direct results of it. Redness on my skin fades, my pores look slightly tighter, my overall complexion looks more even and my skin has a healthy glow. I love seeing such results from a product that is so easy to use. It takes just seconds to spray it on and afterwards you just let it sink into the skin.
I am very happy with these two face products. They do the job and I enjoy using skincare even more when I know that what I am using is all natural and mild for my skin. Both of these products have helped my sensitive and red skin to have a more even complexion and none of these make my skin feel dry. On the contrary, they make my skin feel hydrated and moisturized.
Both Aqua Marina and Eau Roma Water are availible in Lush stores or on their website.
