Hope your all okay?
On Friday me & Gareth jumped into the car, popped on the radio and drove 2 hours to a summer skincare bloggers event over at Lush Luton.
I was super excited for this event as I was in desperate need of new skincare as I want my skin looking a lot better with my moms wedding coming up and wanted to check out sun care with Gareth been deployed in a few months.
As soon as we arrived Rosie, Nikita & Lauren welcomed us to sit down and enjoy the snacks they had provided - and I was not going to turn down Percy pigs & pretzels!
Once all the other girls arrived we were shown the itinerary and hoped straight into it!
I started by getting a colour reading while everyone else tried out toothy tabs (they weren't something I really liked the idea of - it is basically toothpaste in a solid tablet that you chew then rinse..)
I fell in love with the colour intuitive - a apple green with gold shimmer in it and really may be picking this up soon as it really pops on blue eyes!
I then went on to have a skincare consultation with Lauren - who was a genius if I do say so myself.
I have been looking for a new cleanser for a while now so Lauren showed me how amazing Ultrabland is on the back of my hand - I did go on to buy this but I have a skincare haul coming up tomorrow do keep your eyes peeled for that!
I explained to Lauren that I love exfoliated face scrubs but having sensitive skin some scrubs can really irritate my skin and this is when she showed me the most beautiful smelling cleanser called 'Let the good times roll" which had popcorn in which gives you a really light exfoliation, perfect if you like to scrub yourself like me but want to have skin left afterwards!!
Finishing off to skin care consultation I decided to pick out a Fresh Face mask since I had 5 pots to hand in.
If you didn't already know if you take 5 clean pots back into lush you are rewarded with a FREE face mask.
While I made my decision Gareth popped over to Nikita who helped him pick out a solid shampoo bar.
I adore these inventions and they have really helped change my hairs condition!
They lather up beautifully on the hair and leave your locks smelling so good.
They are perfect for travelling as they are very lightweight,last up to 80 washes and mean your not having to take liquid into your suitcase - you can buy tins to store these in too but I just leave mine out on the side of my shower to be honest (just remember not to get them wet!)
Rosie then was kind enough to talk us through the sun care range.
They have a range of factors from 10,15 & 30 which is fantastic.
That said though sadly the factors aren't quite high enough for me - I tend to go for a factor 50 because of my pale skin & being post transplant, but Rosie had an AMAZING idea, I could use the dusting powder as a setting powder for that extra protection.
I will defiantly be getting this in the future, so do let me know if you would like to see a separate post about this.
We also looked at the other products which would be great for pre holiday pampering - scrubs,massage bars,body sprays,toothy tab, lib scrubs & lots more.
Just like last time LUSH Luton were really generous & gave us a great summer beauty related goody bag.
These are the goodies we got..
Strawberry Feels Massage Bar which smells alot like D'fluff Shaving Cream and we all want silky smooth legs come the summer right?
A Solid Shampoo Bar I chose 'Honey I washed My Hair' which is great for giving your hair shine and a amazing toffee scent - Yum!
Sugar Scrub which is a really intense scrub which will help you buff away any dead skin,giving you perfect summer skin.
Somewhere over the Rainbow Soap this was part of the spring range and smells like yummy lemon drops ( I already have some of this in my collection so VERY happy to get some more)
Shower Jelly in 'Pot O' Gold' which was also from the spring range and smells so decadent and gorgeous. Top Tip for Shower Jelly's I have to say is pop them in your fridge and they are super refreshing on hot summer days!
The boys were really impressed to he he!
I just want to say a HUGE thank you to LUSH Luton for holding another great event, and I can't wait for the next one.
Be sure to keep your eyes peeled tomorrow for my LUSH skincare haul - there is some real beauties in there I promise.
Stay Safe & Speak Soon
