Just recently I’ve come home from a family holiday from Fuerteventura. Just before I left for holidays I purchased a few Items from Lush, I’ve wanted to use them for a while so with going I holiday I thought I’d jump at the chance to try them out. Plus it meant I could give an honest review.
Powdered Sunshine – Powdered sunscreen, SPF 15.
This product is ideal for people who hate the sticky feeling of lotion. It’s a light loose powder, that you apply over your skin, leaving a shimmering matte finish that keeps you safe in the sun. It has a lovely fruity, yet earthy aroma. I feel its better suited to darker/sallower skin tone, I say this more with it having an SPF of 15. I followed the instructions and reapplied every two hours or so & found it brilliant even in the 30 degree heat! I’d give it 5/5 & definitely be repurchasing !
The Sunblock – Solid Sunscreen Wash, SPF 30 High.
Lush advice when using – Each 1/3 of the block gives protection to the whole body, hop in the shower & apply over the skin, the cocoa butter & sesame oil make it a smooth application. In my opinion, (as well as as the opinions of many other people) I feel its best to use it like a massage bar, applying to the body & allowing it to sink into the skin, yes it can take a few minutes & leave a light oily residue for a few minutes. But I feel its the most affect by of use, especially cost wise, making the product last a good number of days.
*This product has ingredients that are prone to melting in heat.
I don’t know about you but the heat causes havoc with my hair, making it so frizzy. So when I read reviews about this product I had to try it. The ingredients include lemon juice & honey which counter the static charge of frizziness, so in turn your hair looks & feels smooth for longer. Comb through towel dried hair & leave it to dry naturally, it dried straighter then normal. A few hours later I sprayed it on a brush & brushed through my now dry hair & it looked lovely & smooth again. I love that it doesn’t feel to oily or heavy, also that its so good at de-tangling my hair. The only thing is I found it made my hair slightly greasey, so I’d give it 4/5. But with that I’d still repurchase & use it ever summer. It makes me want to try ‘Sea Spray’ even more now!
As always, Thanks for reading! Until next time!
