(Don’t) Look At Me Now

Don't Look At Me

Minty aroma with a touch of zest – Don’t Look At Me Fresh Face Mask is one of the newest non-holiday products to debut in LUSH North America. As with all LUSH face masks, this product is only available in-store and should be refrigerated and used before the expiration date.

Reminding me of a texture similar to the beloved Ocean Salt, this mask gently moisturizes and exfoliates the face. Plus, the refreshing scent makes it the perfect morning pick-me-up! I highly recommend this product for not so sensitive skin types, since the citrus ingredients mixed with the rice exfoliant could irritate the skin.

Cinco de Ocean Salt

Who celebrated Cinco de Mayo?! Many, many companies did over social media! Cinco de Mayo is mainly celebrated in the U.S. and Mexico. It is always on May 5th and recognizes the historical connections between the two countries. Here are some of my favorite social media Cinco de Mayo posts:

eos – I love eos balms! They are so cute… and these mustaches make them even more adorable (mustaches seem to be so popular)! Eos did a phenomenal job promoting their product in a festive light.

kate spade – kate spade hit two birds with one stone. They created a post that celebrated Cinco de Mayo and the Kentucky Derby! What a smart idea. I also love how they incorporated their blog into the post. The term “Cinco de Derby” is pretty smooth and catchy!


LUSH Cosmetics LUSH posted a Cinco de Mayo DIY! They created a post that shows how to create a “LUSHious piñata!” What an adorable idea. What would you fill a LUSH piñata with?! Share in the comments!

I ended with LUSH since it is the perfect transition into my Ocean Salt product review! I love this scrub. It can be used for the face or body and smells strongly of lime vodka- very Cinco de Mayo if you ask me!

AROMA: This product is heavenly! You can smell the limes, grapefruits, and vodka immediately after you open the pot! I enjoy the smell and think it is one of the more acceptable and likable smells from LUSH. It is very popular!

DUO USE: Ocean Salt is a face and body scrub. I have heard of many LUSHies using it on their face and loving it! That is not me. I only use this scrub on my body because my eyes and skin are very sensitive to salt. Hence the name, Ocean Salt has a ton of salt in it!

EXFOLIATION: Similar to BIG Shampoo from LUSH, Ocean Salt has a ton of salt that exfoliates the skin. It is a soft exfoliation and not to irritating or harsh. Ocean Salt is the perfect product to use when shaving (but watch out for cuts with the salt – ouch)!

COLOR: As you can see from the LUSH Facebook post, Ocean Salt has a beautiful top layer of light blue. Once you reach the bottom of the pot or mix the product, it turns into a light, creamy color! The cream color still has a lot of salt and smells the same! I wish the entire product was blue… but oh well.

INGREDIENTS: The ingredients in this popular LUSH product are fine sea salt, fresh grapefruit infusion, fresh lime extracted in vodka, coarse sea salt, fresh avocado butter, and much more! From the description of the ingredients, one could probably tell this product is very similar to the popular Mexican drink, the margarita! Ocean Salt comes in two sizes and is not vegan.

I LOVE Ocean Salt. I always have a pot of it in my bathroom. I just finished this one (it looks very loved, doesn’t it?). Share your thoughts on Ocean Salt in the comments! Happy Cinco de Mayo !
