Lush Norwich - Lush Night In 29/03/2016

Hi guys

So on Tuesday 29th March Lush Norwich put on a small event called Lush Night In. The event started at 6.15pm until 8pm. The four Lush Ladies, Claire, Imy, Sara and Lucy made us all feel so welcomed. The night began with a brief introduction from everyone, a sniff of all our favorite Lush products and some background information on the history of Lush. 

Lucy, who is the lady that helped me choose a massage bar back in January (you can read that post here) gave us a demo of the Big Blue bath bomb and explained all about the Seaweed inside the bath bomb. You can also find out the information on the seaweed here. Here is a little pic of the bath bomb once it had finished fizzing away.

We then moved on and started to create the cupcake face mask. After we all took turns to add ingredients and give it a good mix (my mum wowed everyone with her mixing skills) Imy potted the masks and set them aside for us to take home.  

We then moved onto the facial. The Lush ladies gave us two cleansers to try out. Ultrabalm and Ultrabland. The Lush ladies explained about the difference in the products. Sara was talking about the Ultrabalm with such passion that not only did I use it I also ended up purchasing it. I just fell in love with the way it felt on my skin and it smells good enough to eat. My mum tried and purchased the other cleanser Ultrabland.

We also had the chance to try out some toners. I tried one, but I have no idea what one I tried. They all smelt great and I am sure I will end up purchasing one at some point. 

Before we had our shopping time the four Lush ladies treated us all to a face massage using the Full of Grace Serum Bar. Claire was my masseuse and she was great, she made me feel very relaxed and did this really cool tapping thing on my face. We got to keep the half of bar used on us.  I am sure i will buy a serum bar once I have used my sample up. My skin just felt amazing after. Well actually all us ladies ended up saying how amazing our skin felt. 

I ended up buying the Ultrabalm, Bubblegum lip scrub, Sun solid perfume, Hair custard and Aveobath bath bomb.

I wont lie, I have already tried all the products I purchased with the exception of the bath bomb. I will review them in different post otherwise this post would be huge!! 

A massive thank you to, Sara, Claire, Lucy and Imy who made the night so great. 

If your local Lush shop offers event nights then I fully recommend it. I had a 'Lush' night. 

Please do leave your Lush Night in reviews below or any reviews you have blogged about regarding the products mentioned above.

Blogger Beauty Box - February Update

So, today I discovered that my blog has reached over 5000 views!! 

This is a small number to some but to me it is a huge achievement.  I am amazed that you wonderful people have taken the time to read my little creation in this huge blogging world. A massive thank you to you all for taking the time to read what I have to say.

My Blogger Beauty Box - February post has been my most read post to date so I though I would give you a little update on the products I have used from this box. 

Firstly the Mandarin & Chamomile products from JR Naturorganics - These are truly wonderful products.  JR Naturorganics are collaborating and promoting bloggers at the moment which is really lovely to see.  I am yet to take the plunge and join. I guess I will do this once I have more time to develop my little blog.  
I'll be honest and say the Gentle Cleansing Milk isn't really my thing.  It smells lovely and leaves my skin feeling soft but its just not durable enough to get all my make-up off. However, the Hydrating Mist O.M.G!! I could not get enough of this. I was gutted when it ran out.  It is the perfect cleanser for my skin. I used it in the morning all over my face. It is refreshing, leaves my skin hydrated and smelling beautiful. Pay day is fast approaching and I will be purchasing this as a treat to myself. I would like to try the moisturiser in this set but that may have to wait until I have used up the face creams that I currently have. 

Next up is the PureSkin by Vanessa Blake Cosmetics. I get compliments all the time when I wear this on my lips. The product sticks to the areas where you apply it and you do not get any bleeding. Once it has worn off a little your lips will still have a rose tint and the lips remain moisturised the whole time.  This really is a wonderful lip product and if you are willing to splash out then go treat yourself to one of these. So much better for you that other lip sticks that people craze over. 

The Bi Phase Plus Eye Make Up Remover is nice but i wouldn't purchase it. For me I feel as though Nivia  Daily Essentials Double Effect Eye Make-Up Remover is just as good although a little more greasy.  This product is great for removing stubborn eye make-up with very little product on your cotton pad. So again, if you are looking to purchase a high quality brand of eye make-up remover, you will most certainly get what you pay for with this.  Its great, but just a little out of my price range. 

Finally, onto the last product that I have used from this box. The DHC Mineral Mask this is a great face mask.  I have used it a couple of times. It goes on really thick and drys well, easy to remove and leaves my skin feeling great. As this was a full size tube I cant see that I am going to need to buy this product for a while. I am interested in trying some more of the DHC products though.  If I do I will make sure I let you guys know.

So there you have it. These are the products that I have tried and used in the last month since receiving my box. I didn't purchase the March box for money saving reasons and I think it will be the same for April but I hope to be able to buy the May box.
