Favorite Lush Products: Face

If you know me at all, you probably know I have a crazy healthy obsession with LUSH. If you don't know what LUSH is, it's an all-natural handmade "cosmetics" line. They make everything from facial cleansers and moisturizers, to shampoo and shower gel, to bar soaps and body lotions, and they have a very extensive and awesome line of bath products. The best part is that all of their products are 100% fresh, handmade, and all-natural, which means they're great for your skin & hair. Ever since I started using LUSH, I've been hooked and have accumulated quite an array of products; I even have some Italian LUSH products from my European adventure this summer! So today I wanted to share some of my all-time favorite LUSH products with y'all, & this first edition is on my favorite face products.

FACE PRODUCTS

These three products make up the bulk of my daily skin care regimen, with a mix of makeup wipes when I get lazy. I don't switch up my skin routine up very often, and this works wonders for me so I have no interest in switching it up any time soon. For the last year +, I've been using these products:

9 to 5: Cleanser, makeup remover, and moisturizer all in one. When I first started using this product, I actually thought it was a lotion (clearly I don't know how to read) because it was so soft on my skin. I use it all over my face after I've used a makeup wipe to get the bulk of my makeup off. The cleanser deep-cleans my face and gets off any left-over residue. I also can't get enough of the citrus smell it has, even though LUSH says that it's made with almond oil & orchid... I have the jumbo 8.5 oz size so it definitely takes me a while to get through this bottle. This is a great product & I would also say it's safe for sensitive skin. A 3.4 oz bottle costs $9.95 and the jumbo 8.5 oz bottle runs $19.95 (obviously a much better value, but the small size is perfect for travel!)

Tea Tree Water: This stuff IS. MY. JAM. Seriously, hands down my favorite LUSH product. I never used a toner before this, but it has completely revolutionized my skin care routine. I spray it on my face after my cleanser to help wipe it off with a cotton pad, and then again before I put my moisturizer on. I just do a couple sprays each time, but the toner mixed with both the cleanser & moisturizer really maximize the product's effectiveness. I also just spray it on my face whenever I want to feel refreshed. Because it's made with tea tree oil, and grapefruit and juniper waters, it also smells amazing. It's an incredible product and I cannot say enough about it. A 3.4 oz bottle is $8.95 & the 8.5 oz bottle costs $19.95. The large bottle is totally worth it, but the small one still lasted me a long time.

Enzymion: The third member of my perfect skin trio, Enzymion is a citrus (surprise) moisturizer with pineapple, lemon, and papaya that is made specifically for oily skin. What's awesome about Enzymion is that it gives your skin a matte finish. Having somewhat oily skin, I love having moisturizer that doesn't make my skin feel greasy or shiny and just lets my skin look natural after applying. This does run on the pricey side; Enzymion costs $37.95 for a 1.5 oz container. It sounds like a lot (and it kind of is), but one container lasts me for 6 months and I use it twice a day, every day. Highly recommend it!

Do any of you use LUSH products for your daily skin care routine? Are there any products for oily skin that I'm missing out on? Let me know in a comment!
