Lush Swap with Natalie ~CatchAnEye

IMG_4987Hi everyone! ❤

My Lush obsessed has grown slightly since the last time I blogged…Oops..BUT I have found someone equally as obsessed as I am! She is called Natalie and she has a blog on BlogSpot. You guys should defiantly check her out here.

Im kinda stuck in a rut with Lush, I tend to stick to what I know I like and what works for me. We came up with a great idea to do a Lush swap. We gave each other a budget of £20 to pick out our favorite Lush items for each other. Getting the package was like Christmas.

I tried everything she got me so I wont do a full on review but I will give my first impressions of everything.

Angels On Bare Skin – Fresh Cleanser

This fresh cleanser is both for the face and body. It is supposed to leave your skin nourished and feeling soft. It certainly does what it says on the tin. It smells very….earthy with a hint of lavender. That’s the only way I can describe it. It isn’t unpleasant but it isn’t great! “This incredibly gentle cleanser is made from 100% natural ingredients. Inspired by a mediaeval recipe and topped off with lavender flowers, this contains kaolin to absorb grease and dirt, leaving skin clean and nourished. Lavender oil and rose absolute calm the skin. As you mix your solid cleanser with water to form a paste, the ground almonds create almond milk which helps to tone and brighten the skin. This can be used all over your body as well as your face.

I put a small piece into my hand and added a small amount of water to turn it into a gritty paste. After cleansing my face my skin felt super soft and clean without that tight feeling you get with some cleansers. Iv been using it for around 2 weeks now and have seen a huge improvement with my skin!

Would I buy this again? 100% yes!

Cupcake Fresh Face Mask

This is funny because I ordered this for Natalie to try out! Iv tried lots of the Lush masks and never really found one that my skin loves…or lets be honest…smells that great! Hallelujah I have found my facemask!!! I think this is my favorite item Natalie picked out for me. It smells amazing…Doesnt taste as good as it smells…Dont pretend like you havent tried! It leaves my skin silky soft. “Rhassoul mud, which is highly absorbent, works with cocoa powder to draw out all the dirt and impurities and give a deep cleanse. Fresh mint stimulates and tones the skin, whilst linseed and cocoa butter soften and moisturise. Smooth a generous layer of this mask onto your face and leave for 10 to 15 minutes.”

I’m not sure how often you are suppose to use this but I use mine around 3 times a week just because it’s so damn easy! I have seen a MASSIVE improvement with my skin…So much so I bought one for my boss to try!

Would I buy it myself? I already did!

Space Girl – Bath Bomb

I had to hop in the bath as soon as I opened my package! Holy Moly it smells sooo good! ITs a very fruity,almost blackcurrant kind of smells. I was a bit worried the red glitter would get everywhere but it really doesn’t! The smell lingered on my skin for a good 24 hours! “A space-dust filled bath bomb with a sweet and fruity fragrance. Once you drop this into your bath, Space Girl crackles with space dust (popping candy) as it spins around your orbit, restoring your good cheer. Grapefruit oil is refreshing and uplifting for the mood, clarifying and toning the skin, while bergamot makes you feel relaxed and cheerful.”

Would I buy this myself? Oh yes! Its going to be one of my favorites!

Rose Jam – Bubble Bar

Yet again I had never thought to try this. It just didn’t look as exciting as some of the others. The smells is so sweet but not sickly like I found The Comforter to be. Unlike some of the others you do need to use the whole thing to get a decent amount of bubbles. It left my skin silky soft and smelling of roses! It’s such a gorgeous little bubble bar! “Pep up your spirits in a bath filled with Rose Jam: lemon, rose and geranium oil will help perk you up, while coconut oil and shea butter leave you feeling gorgeous. You’ll end up feeling as cheered as though you’d been given a bunch of flowers. Rose oil and rose absolute give a double dose of rosiness, helping to clear the mind and boost your mood.”

Would I buy this for myself? Yes!

So that was our little swap! I absolutely LOVE everything! Girl…you did good!! I would recommend doing this to anyone.

Stay tuned for our future swaps and don’t forget to check out what I picked out for the beautiful Natalie here!

Have a beautiful day xxxxx
