Lush Mask Of Magnaminty
The Mask of Magnaminty is quite thick and creamy in texture, as you can see from the picture below the mask is green! I love the scent of the mask, it smells like spearmint, I find it very refreshing!
The scent is just right I don’t find the mask too minty or overpowering just a light mint smell. Although the texture is thick I didn’t have any problems applying the mask, it spreads easily over the skin, it is easier to spread then other masks I have tried previously.
The mask feels very invigorating, Cooling and very refreshing on the skin there is also a cold cooling sensation on the skin when applying, which I didn’t mind. you can feel the mask is working and deeply cleansing and refreshing the skin whilst it dries. The exfoliating granules in the mask are tiny and very gentle on the skin, not too harsh or rough, or scratchy I personally hate masks that are like this. I have sensitive skin so like a mask to cleanse deeply but not too leave me with a red blotchy face.
The mask does not dry really hard or go stiff like some clay masks do, there is also no tight feeling as the mask dries, I did find the mask to flake off slightly after 10 minutes but found the mask comfortable to keep on. The mask easily washes off, I left the mask on for 10 minutes added warm water to rehydrate and then used a flannel to remove the mask.
After removing the mask the skin is left feeling soft, smooth and deeply cleansed with a nice glow. I would defiantly recommend this mask if you like to have a pamper, and if your skin is in need of a deep cleanse. The mask retails at £6.95 for 125g which I think is a reasonable price for a face mask, you don’t need to use a lot so I think this would last a while, this mask can also be used on the body so a multi-use product.
“Easily smoothed over the skin, this mask is made with peppermint oil to stimulate, marigold oil and chlorophyllin to treat the skin; evening primrose seeds and aduki beans to gently exfoliate as you wash it away. There’s mineral rich kaolin to nourish, honey for its antibacterial properties, and we used just the right amount of peppermint oil to stimulate blood cells under the surface of your skin and leave your skin looking bright and refreshed. ”
Lush Sleepy Body lotion
I have seen the hype around the Lush Sleepy Body Lotion and I often struggle with sleep, when I heard how so many people had the best night sleep using this cream and even helped their toddlers sleep! I knew that I needed this cream, I was unsure at first if this would really work or if I had been sucked into buying something again because of Instagram.
There have been so many people using this lotion from tired mums to people with chronic illnesses and insomniac tendencies singing its praises. I have heard of parents using this on children I’m not sure to be honest if this is safe or not so I wouldn’t personally, but if you personally struggle with sleep then I would recommend giving this ago! I have tried so many different pillow sprays ranging from different prices, and have found This Works sleep spray is the best so far but I’m always on the lookout for new products to help with sleep.
When I first applied the Sleepy body lotion I did feel strange applying a purple liquid on my body, but the lotion, however, smells lovely! earthy, creamy and of lavender with sweetness. I popped the lotion on my legs, tummy chest and arms and got comfy in bed, I did notice that I hadn’t spent hardly any time trying to get to sleep. I would recommend to have a shower first pop on the lotion and not to have any coffee near bedtime as it will have competing effects.
The lotion retails at £7.95 for 95g which I think is a good price for a good nights sleep! You can pay more for a body lotion that doesn’t have the same great benefits. I would recommend this body lotion to anyone to try if you also struggle with sleep, you wake up with soft skin and feeling refreshed. I personally love the smell of Lavender so this alone made me want this body lotion but with the great sleeping effects and the soft skin, you really can’t go wrong.
“You’ll sleep well after dipping into this dreamy lotion, made with a gentle oatmeal infusion, calming lavender flower and comfortingly sweet tonka absolute. A rich, malty and floral perfume conjures up visions of sugar plums and hot drinks topped with whipped cream while the heavenly ministrations of creamy Fair Trade organic cocoa butter and delicate lavender water cool and enrich the skin. Blanket your body in this lovely lotion before stepping into soft pyjamas for snuggly nights beside the fire.”
