Get Herbed Up

$10.75 per 3.5 ounce

Lush has some great all natural products that actually work. Though they can be a little pricey their products have ingredients you can actually pronounce, so you know exactly what you're getting, which is a plus. Lush has amazing facial washes that really do clear up acne, inflammation along with evening out skin tone without drying out your skin. Herbalism is a great cleanser it is really good for the winter months because it is non drying and it cleans very well! Herbalism is a green soft almost dough like cleanser that you buy by the pound. You actually can buy it in large quantities because Lush cleaners are made without liquids so they do not expire.

"Herbalism is a a preservative free, clay-based, herbal cleanser that is made to help absorb excess oils and leave the skin looking less shiny, making it great for skin on the oily side"- We do find they're claims to be true. The gentle cleanser is great for sensitive skin it helps heal and dry up blemishes without further inflaming them. The clay helps dry out extra oil and the chamomile helps sooth skin. It also exfoliates using oatmeal. We do find that there is a little residue left on our skin after this cleanser so follow up with a toner, but we would suggest that with any cleanser. This cleanser does not remove makeup very well, so we suggest using a makeup remover to remove eye makeup or heavy face make up. After you have a clean face the cleanser does exactly what it is supposed to do: cleans, calms and moisturizes skin. If you prefer you can use it in the morning when your face has no make up on it to help combat pimples and oil during the day.

Wet your face first with luke warm water then apply a small amount to each section of your face in circular motions. We find if it is applied in sections (left cheek, right cheek, chin and forehead) it is less messy and easier to work with. Follow with a light oil free non comedogenic moisturizer/anti wrinkle cream.

I always walk by Lush. From what I'm reading their products seem really great I have problem skin and it is very sensitive I am going to try this product now.

Thank you.

That looks like a pile of green poo! Hopefully it doesn't smell like it.
