Breath of Fresh Air Toner

To continue with the cleanser theme… I wanted to review the Breath of Fresh Air toner from LUSH! This is a great toner… I think LUSH has three different toners one can choose from. These are Tea Tree toner, Breath of Fresh Air and Eau Roma Water toner. I have been using my toner for quite a while now and just purchased the Eau Roma Water (you will see it in a haul coming up!) Here is the lovely Breath of Fresh Air:

SKIN TYPE: This is a fantastic toner for all skin types. It does help with damaged skin though… I like using this in the winter because it helps to refresh and rehydrate my super dry skin!

SMELL: I love the aroma of this toner. It is very light and airy. To me, it smells like rose water with a hint of salt! I think LUSH actually says that it is a seaweed and rose water mixture!

FEEL: I love how light this is on the skin. It is not chemical-y at all but rather super light and fresh. It actually really hydrates your face! You can feel that immediately once it is sprayed.

INGREDIENTS: The fresh ingredients in this toner are aloe vera gel, spring water, fresh sea water, rose absolute, patchouli oil and much more! This is basically the perfect seawater toner! The aloe vera helps with damaged skin such as dryness, cuts, etc.

USAGE: I have had this toner FOREVER. This was actually one of my first facial LUSH products. I did not use it a lot but recently I have used it almost daily! It is very refreshing. Remember, a little goes a long way like with most LUSH products!

Overall, I would recommend this toner to anyone who deals with damaged skin or anyone who loves the sea! It is a great refreshing toner which helps to balance the skin with the aloe vera gel and seawater.

P.S. – I am curious to try Herbalism! I have never used it or even sampled it before! What do y’all think about it? Does anyone use it?!

Full Of Grace

Hallo all! To continue with the cleansers/face products, I wanted to do a product review for the Full of Grace serum bar! I love this thing… Mine lasts a while because I only use it before a mask. It really hydrates and sets the skin for any type of mask. Here is my bar:

SKIN TYPE: This product is super gentle and comforting. I think it would go well with any skin type since it does nothing but moisturize! I have dry and sensitive skin. Full of Grace works miracles on me! 

SMELL: This product also has a pretty soft smell. To me, it has a soft lavender smell that has a floral perfume punch to it! I think LUSH says that this product has many butters, chamomile and mushroom! But it is a lovely sweet smell. Nothing to over powering at all! 

TEXTURE: This serum works exactly like a massage bar. You just rub it on your face or hands and then it melts down and turns into an oily texture. Full of Grace is nice because it is no to oily at all! You can feel it on your skin after you use it though! It is light and very moisturizing. 

FRESH INGREDIENTS: Like every LUSH product, Full or Grace has many many fresh ingredients. There are murumuru butter, chamomile blue oil, organic almond oil, fresh portobello mushrooms, fresh rose infusion and so much more! The ingredient list for this product is jam packed with lots and lots of amazing butters and oils. 

NO PACKAGING: I also love how this bar has zero packaging like some LUSH products. It is wonderful to just pull this out from my cabinet and start using it immediately! Also, less waste the better! Full of Grace is also preservative free and Vegan! Two pluses! 

I suggest this serum for anyone who uses any type of face mask often! It helps moisturize your skin while the mask is on and prevents it from dehydration! This serum bar is available all year round from LUSH online and in stores. Have you tried Full or Grace?!

 

Buche De Noel Facial Cleanser Review

So I want to reivew another holiday LUSH product… this time it is the Buche De Noel facial cleanser! This is a up in the air product for me. I like the idea of it… but not sure if I truly LOVE the product.

Here are some product images:

Positives:

  • Great cleanse – this cleanser does clean my face pretty well. I feel refreshed, hydrated and ready for my moisturizer and toner once I use it! I have been starting to use it a lot more… but still not sure if it is worth it!

Negatives:

  • Chunks on chunks – there are way, way to many chunks in this cleanser. Mine especially has lots of dried fruit (I think cranberries?). These pieces of fruit get stuck in my sink and do not even get the chance to make it one my face!
  • Seaweed explosion – I am not a huge fan of this one wrapped in seaweed… especially since it is in a pot, the seaweed smell is VERY strong. I mean VERY STRONG. It is hard for me to smell the actual cleanser because of the seaweed.

Overall, I am not a super fan of this facial cleanser. I will still use it all up since it is only a small amount! So far, my favorite facial cleansers from LUSH are Angles On Bare Skin and Let The Good Times Roll… those both have a great consistency and smell! Let me know your thoughts on Buche De Noel!
