Last Sunday evening I had such a pamper sesh. Perfect timing, too; it was cold and grey and rainy outside, all the more reason to cosy up at home, run a hot bath and generally be happy indoors. I was also really tired, and could feel a cold coming on (it threatened for days, and actually arrived proper yesterday morning, boo). But a long hot soak and read in the bath makes many things a million times better, and should never be underestimated!
I used two face masks, the Cupcake and the BB Seaweed. The Cupcake is for oily and "teenage skin" and some of my skin, even at 32, is far too teenage for my liking – I still get acne on my chest. This has been massively improved by the Herbalism cleanser (also by Lush) but it still needs a bit of extra help, and Cupcake is just that. This stuff is AMAZING. It smells like chocolate (I've heard people say they want to eat it) but also a bit of shoe polish, so while I'm not tempted to eat this stuff myself (probably a good thing, really) I will always have it in my fridge. I use this once or twice a week and it soothes and clears my skin incredibly well. Top notch, much needed, and absolutely necessary product.
The BB seaweed went on my face. I am pleasantly surprised with this one. I really like the smell – fresh and salty rather than sweet and flora – and it kind of polishes my skin up a treat, leaving my face brighter, clearer and smoother. Not as much of an essential for me as the Cupcake is, but still very good, and something that will end up in my shopping basket more often than not. Do like.
disclosure: both face masks were gifted to esme and the laneway (from Lush), with no expectations placed on them re. making it to the blog. All views are, as always, 100% my own. Sharing because I LOVE them! x
