Today I'm super excited to share with you some beauty-related items that I got for Christmas! This post has kind of been delayed because one of my gifts was a gift card to Sephora, so I wanted to wait until I had used my gift card so that I could talk about everything all at once! I'll be reviewing one of my gifts for you today. : )
What did I get??
e.l.f Beauty-On-The-Go Set
e.l.f Brush Collection 10 Piece Brush Set
Both sets can be found here.
Too Faced Natural Eye Palette
Too Faced Smokey Eye Palette
Benefit Primping with the Stars Set (All Time Greatest "Fake-Its" Kit)
2 Sephora Doe Eyed Felt Eyeliners
Super excited to try this stuff out and review it for you!
Now for the Christmas present I'll be reviewing for you today...
LUSH Winter Wishes Gift Set
I'm dumb and forgot to take pictures of this before I started using it, so all pictures are from Lush's website!
This set includes:
100 ml Ponche Shower Gel
100 g Snow Globe Soap
30 g Each Peach mini Massage Bar
100 g Sugar Scrub
Ponche Shower Gel
Snow Globe Soap
Grapefruit, lemon, and lemongrass oils to brighten up those winter days
Ylang ylang oil to relax and calm you
All of Lush's soaps are made by hand and poured into moulds... the pieces aren't actually in packages in the store. They are sitting on a shelf in a variety of sizes...the size of the piece of soap you pick determines how much it will cost. This allows for less overall packaging...isn't that cool?? There are TONS of fun options...you'll never find soap boring again! This particular scent is $7.95 for 3.5 oz (a regular bar of Dial soap is 4 oz).
Each Peach Massage Bar
Avocado and mango kernel butters mixed with cocoa and shea butter base
Lime, mandarin, and orange essential oils to lift your mood
Even just using this as a way to de-stress would be perfect: have someone rub this into your skin while giving you a back massage...sounds heavenly to me!! This product is $10.95 for 2.2 oz.
Powdered ginger to stimulate circulation and warm your skin
Fair Trade sugar to buff away dead skin and leave you glowing
Calming lavender to promote healthier skin
This definitely feels rough on your skin, and you kind of have to get used to it, but wow it really did diminish some of those gross little bumps!! WARNING: Do not let the ball of sugar scrub get under the running water!! I failed to pay attention to this direction, and now my sugar scrub is a gross, ruined lump. Sighhhh. I'm definitely going out and buying another one, because this is a product to keep using! This product is $6.25 for 3.5 oz (and also package-free).
That sums up my gift set!! Bottom line: I LOVE LUSH!! I just think their products are so cool and unique and the thought of using all of those natural products on my skin somehow makes me feel healthier. This is just not something you're going to find at the drugstore or Target, and that alone justifies the prices for me. They have a TON of other products (even makeup!) so check them out here.
The Justice section of this post should be obvious: LUSH! They are doing a ton of stuff to help our world, communities and environment. This post is already long, so I'll direct you here so that you can read up on them, and learn how you can support!
This was a fun post...I hope you enjoyed it!!
