A little bit of Lush

Hello m'loves...

Over the last couple of weeks I've been trying some new products from Lush and wanted to share my thoughts...

Oatifix Face Mask

Oatifix is aimed at people with dry and sensitive skin and contains banana, vanilla, oats and almonds. The most noticeable thing straight away about oatifix is the smell. My immediate reaction was 'uugh' but actually it really grew on me, you can definitely smell vanilla and banana but to me I can also smell something a little Cinnamon - y. The texture is quite thick which makes it really easy to use on the face and contains oats which provide quite a mild exfoliation...

It is maybe not the prettiest of Lush face masks but I think it might be my favorite...My skin felt so soft all night and the scent lingers on the skin. Oatifix is undoubtedly the most moisturising face mask I have used - Love!


Apparently during this particular lush trip I was loving oats! Porridge is so creamy and smells really quite lovely! Again it contains oats meaning it is not only a soap but also an exfoliant - however it isn't abrasive and leaves skin feeling really cleansed and moisturised.

Something I worry about when soap contains 'bits' is that it will make a mess of my bath but importantly there was no mess - if you haven't tried Porridge, you definitely should!


I want to love Noubar - it looks nice, it contains pistachios and it is really quite moisturising. But I really do not like the smell. There is a definite hint of nuts (there are peanuts, pistachios and walnuts) but it also smells....smokey? It smells a little to green and earthy for me which makes me a bit sad as that green colour is beautiful!

Let me know if you've tried any of these.

Lots of Love
