Bubblegum Lip Scrub - Scrubs Up Well!

Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub With the cold spell every year comes…for me at any rate…dry lips. This year has been particularly unforgiving and so I have really tried my best to stick to my resolution of regularly applying lip balms to alleviate the problem, rather than my usual trick of aggravating the problem by biting my lips. When I heard through the grapevine about Bubblegum Lip Scrub from one of my favourite places ever – Lush – I decided to treat myself. And I have recently done just that. A Brief History of Lush I jest, of course. The most important things you need to know about Lush is that it’s a company which makes hand-made cosmetic products which contain, where possible, natural, ethical ingredients. All of their products are suitable for vegetarians, and the vast majority are suitable for vegans too. This is all helpfully indicated on their packaging, which is, as it happens, rather environmentally friendly as packaging goes. They encourage recycling of their packaging, using incentives such as a free face mask for every 5 black pots you return to the store. The products are responsibly labelled so that you can exactly what goes into the product, when it was made (and who by) and it has a best before date on it. Bubblegum Lip Scrub The lip scrub comes in a small glass pot containing 25g. Being glass, you can see the product, the bright pink was certainly enough to catch my eye. The lid is a screw-on lid which will stay firmly in place if you screw it on tightly. However, you need ...

L'Oreal Lash Renewal Serum 01/01/2010

Lush Long Lashes

L'Oreal Lash Renewal Serum As far as make-up goes, I am all about the lashes. Whether it's a subtle day look, a glitzy evening look or a downright outrageous night time look, lashes can really open up your eyes and totally change your look. While I occasionally opt for a pair of falshies, mascara is normally my weapon of choice (I think lash curlers look like some kind of torture device and can't bring myself to use them). A few strategically placed adverts and some very positive reviews convinced me that I needed to add L'Oréal's Lash Renewal Serum to my artillery. L'Oréal The giant that is L'Oréal must be one of the best known cosmetic brands. I think it's also a pretty well-known fact that they do test on animals. This product, part of the L'Oréal Paris brand, has been clinically tested, so should be suitable for contact lens wearers and those with sensitive eyes. There's no information as to whether the packaging is recyclable. L'Oréal are a brand that I have a certain amount of trust in, at least when it comes to producing good quality products and I've purchased several of their mascaras in the past. Having said that, they're not my favourite brand, so I was interested to see if they would deliver with this product, which promises to fortify lashes and give them a nourishing boost. Packaging This lash serum comes with no outer packaging - great for the environment, but means you won't be able to get your hands on a full list of ingredients. I don't tend to worry too much about what goes ...
