Lush Skincare

Usually I am no big fan of products that carry along a intruding fragrance, especially when you can smell it from almost 200m outside the store. I mostly just walk past the Lush shops as fast as I can to avoid the smell but my friend recommended me to go inside. So I went inside the store to find the shampoo that she recommended for hair loss and walked out with a empty wallet.

Lush is for the girls/boys that:

  • have sensitive skin
  • specific skin problems
  • the vegan
  • are eco-friendly
  • those who simply enjoy to eat their skincare products

An Addition to my skincare products

IMG_0001

What happened was that I met this really friendly and sweet girl with the nicest british accent. When she approached me, I was a bit taken aback by her sudden enthusiastic presence. I told her about the problems with my hair: hair loss and thinner hait (for 6 months I have been dyeing my black hair to brown) So she told me about the shampoo and conditioner. After that I found myself confiding all my problems to girl, like she was some friend instead of a shop assistant. I could clearly tell that she enjoyed her job and truly loved the products that she sold.

I envy those who do what they love and love what they do. I don’t have to be a Bill Gates or the next Steve Jobs but I would love to find a job that keeps me motivated and strives me to challenge myself, whether it’s in a small or a big company.

On to the products, I am generally satisfied with the products. They are fulfilling their purposes but not exceeding, except for one product: Ro’s Argan Body Conditioner. This product is simply amazing, you apply in on while showering and it makes your skin baby-smooth. The fragrance is very pleasant and remains the entire day. I was so happy about this product because I have been struggling with dry skin and small pimples on my arms/legs (it looks like ingrown hair) The product not only made my skin softer but also reduced the amount of pimples. It may be a pricey product but it’s definitely worth it.

Beauty review: Minon

A good friend of mine went to Japan a few weeks ago. The offers of beauty products in Japan is very broad and available in almost every shopping mall. As she walk along the streets of Tokyo, she found this brand. This mask is specially designed for the easily irritated skin and can be used to calm down the skin. I was dying to try this and the result was so surprising, that I wanted to share it. So below you can find the description of the product and my review.

Minon amino moist mask 

FullSizeRender

This Japanese sheet mask includes 9 amino acids for dry and sensitive skin. The hypoallergenic mask is infused with a gel serum that use a mixture of Natural Moisturizing Factors (NMF) which restores the skin barrier and protects the skin’s natural moisture and balance.

How to use: after cleansing and dapping the skin with lotion, position the sheet to nose and mouth and then smooth it out to fit the face. Remove the mask after 15 minutes and blend the serum with your fingers into the skin.

The mask can be purchased on Amazon.com for $19,50

My review

The packaging comes with 4 sheets. It’s kind of hard to unpack the mask because it is covered in gel and very sticky. After I untangled the mask and smooth it out on my face, I waited 15 min. The mask sticks to the face and one can walk around and do other activities while waiting. After that I removed the mask and rubbed the remaining serum. The result was amazing, my skin was so dewy and soft. It felt like a baby’s skin, I didn’t have any break out or allergic reaction. The most surprising thing was that the result lasted a few days.
