LUSH-ous Stress Relievers

Hello all! We are back with another “little” beauty review. As a college student trying to balance eight things at once and a full-time nurse, stress has now become more of a second nature to us (and for most people we’re sure). Even though we have come to accept it we still look for small ways to relax. One of our favorite ways to treat ourselves is with Lush products. The all-natural ingredients and luxurious scents make us feel like we’re getting the spa experience from the comfort of our own homes. Keep reading to discover some of our favorite products from the company…

One thing I can’t ever seem to resist is a face mask and Lush’s Mask of Magnaminty has quickly become one of my favorite masks of all time. Peppermint is one of the top ingredients that go into this product and it leaves your skin feeling fresh and clean. Mask of Magnaminty is meant to deeply cleanse your skin and I can tell you that it does just that. The bentone gel in the mask helps absorb oil which is something my very oily skin appreciates. Overall, it leaves my face feeling incredibly soft and it really helps keep my skin in check and keeps major breakouts at bay.

My next product has to be the Whoosh Shower Jelly and it might be on the list just for the smell alone. The label on this product says it is a wake up call and that it is exactly the way I see and smell it ☺. I am one of those people that absolutely hates mornings and the refreshing lemon and rosemary scent helps to make early mornings a little better (or at least tolerable). Not only does the gel smell great but it also leaves my skin feeling super smooth and moisturizing. This is just the thing to turn a speedy shower into a relaxing and somewhat luxurious experience.



I have a love/ hate relationship with lotion. I love the difference it makes in my skin, but I hate having to wait around for my lotion to sink in after a shower so I can get dressed. Because the only thing I hate more than this is the struggle of having to put on skinny jeans after I’ve just applied lotion to my legs. I skip the gym on those days. Well I skip the gym a lot of days, but still. Ro’s Argan Body Conditioner is really moisturizing and has a great scent. It’s super convenient as it allows you to skip lotion after a shower. You just apply it all over as if you were applying lotion, rinse, pat dry, and presto! I love the feel of my skin when I use it, and I love that the scent stays with me throughout the day.

Another favorite of mine is the Angels on Bare Skin Face and Body Cleanser. This scrub works great on my combination skin as it exfoliates while moisturizing. The clay and ground almonds in this make it a gentle but effective scrub. One of my favorite things about this product is that it doesn’t give my skin that dry, tight feeling that many exfoliators do after use, yet it still feels very clean and fresh. The scent is amazing! It’s a light lavender scent that is not overpowering, and the addition of small lavender flowers gives it a luxurious feel.
