We recently went on holiday to Ireland, spending a week on a boat with my family and cruising up and down the Erne. Unfortunately, the weather was pretty terrible, so we spent much of our time indoors, but it was still great to get to spend time with someone, even if I may have gotten a little competitive over the nightly Phase 10 games….

After recently posting about LUSH‘s Angels on Bare Skin cleanser, I’d like to introduce you to my go-to moisturiser as well. I’ve mentioned lots of times that I have really awkward skin, and pregnancy hasn’t helped that at all. In a moisturiser, I look for a product that will soothe and hydrate my sensitive and dry areas without giving extra ammunition to my already-too-frequent breakouts. Enter Imperialis. [ Read More… ] …
A couple of months ago, a beautiful soul I was lucky enough to go to uni with and who now works at Lush (lucky her) snuck a little gift into my purchase. One of the items was Ro’s Argan Body Conditioner, which was not a product I would have ever considered purchasing, but which I now don’t think I can live without. Too dramatic?
Unlike regular body lotions, which I love but can be a pain to apply when you have to get dressed really fast because of your unfortunate tendency to get out of bed 30 minutes before you have to leave the house, Ro’s Argan Body Conditioner is applied, as the name suggests, like a conditioner. You apply it while you’re still in the shower, quickly rinse it off, and are sufficiently moisturised for the day without being sticky. Genius. To me, this alone would be reason enough to repurchase.
I do, however, also have to talk about the scent. One of the reasons why any of the Lush rose products have never really been on my wish list is because I simply don’t like the scent of roses. Not in perfume, not in really roses, not in potpourri, I always keep roses at an arm’s length. For that reason, I wasn’t going to shell out £16.50 for something I didn’t think I would like. However, the rose scent in Ro’s Argan Body Conditioner is so delicate that I was surprised to find that I actually enjoy it! It isn’t the heavy, slightly bitter scent I was expecting, but instead very light and breezy, perfect for an every-day product. I love it!
It’s certainly a bit pricey, and I don’t think it will become a staple product. However, it makes a wonderful treat and it’s definitely going to become one of those items I regularly give as gifts!
Have you tried using a body conditioner rather than a body lotion? Which do you prefer?
I’ve got another Lush review for you today! I’m trying really hard to catch up with a backlog of posts while I get myself back into the blogging groove, so bear with me if things seem a little unbalanced over here for a little while.
I’ve a huge fan of bubble baths, and, as you probably know yourself, no bath products leave your skin feeling quite as smooth and supple as the ones found on the gorgeously arranged shelves of everyone’s favourite vegan-friendly luxury cosmetics store.
The Orange Bubbleroon is absolutely no exception. It isn’t huge, meaning that the price tag of £3.65 seems a little excessive at first. However, you can twist the two sides apart (the way you would when eating an Oreo… no? Just me?) and easily get to ample baths full of beautifully-scented bubbles from it.
Filled with coconut oil, shea butter and citrus oils, this particular Bubbleroon is both soothing and refreshing at the same time. While I prefer to have baths in the evening to help me drift off to sleep, I can easily imagine using the product in the morning for a gentle wake-up bath.
It’s taken me a little while to take the plunge and buy a Bubbleroon, although I’m not entirely sure why. perhaps the size-price ratio was putting me off a little. However, I’m glad I finally did, because I’ll certainly be buying it again!
Have you ever stayed away from a product, only to find that you really like it when finally giving it a chance?
