#BeautyCrush: Lush’s Popcorn Lip Scrub… yummy!!

When I attended the Lush ‘Fresh Face’ event, I treated myself to a few of their best selling products. One of them was the Popcorn Lip Scrub which I proceeded to using every other day for a week & a bit.

Results: HUGE CRUSH!

This little gem is made up of coconut and jojoba oils, sugar, sea salt and polenta making it the the perfect mix to buff your lips to perfection and leave them smooth and moisturised. It also features popping candy sweetness and has a little salted caramel flavour!

Rub it onto your lips (gently) just before you wash your face, rinse off for plumped-up, smooth & soft lips! Do add some lip balm to really seal in the moisture…

Kissable lips guaranteed!

Make your own!

If you fancy making your own Lip Scrub at home here is one of my favorite recipes:

1. Take 1 table spoon of coconut butter (can be found in all major health stores)

2. Add 1 table spoon of brown sugar

3. Mix is all up

4. Rub the mixture gently onto your lips before washing off

Et voila!

#BeautyCrush: Fabulous toner!

You know, I’ve gotta admit, I always liked the idea of ‘natural/organic’ beauty products BUT I’ve always been a little sceptical about whether they actually work and, perhaps a bit scared of how my skin might react to them.

But, I do like a challenge and so when I received a bottle of Herbline Essentials Cucumber & Rose Water Tonic in my VIVA Beauty Awards GlamBox, I decided to give it a try for a least a week (the time it usually takes my skin to say yay or nay).

And well, it has now been a week exactly and both my skin and I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!

The tonic smells divine and feels so fresh! Apply a little bit on a cotton pad, dab it all over your face, apply your usual moisturiser and you’re good to go! I use it morning & night.
