Dry, itchy, inflamed and flaky skin is not something you go around glamorizing. For a long time I suffered in silence, until I finally exploded. Last years eczema episode was the last straw for me. I heard plenty of great reviews about Lush Cosmetics through the grape vine and decided to give them a try. Angels on Bare Skin and Dream Cream were recommended to me by the Lush employees and I have never looked back since. If you have sensitive, flaky, eczema prone skin I would HIGHLY advise you to keep reading.
Angels on Bare Skin: I use this gentle exfoliating cleanser as an all over body scrub. This product buffs away all of my dry, flaky skin and makes way for soft glowing skin. The best part about this product is that it has lavender in it. Lavender helps to even out your skin tone = goodbye dark spotty patches. The lavender also helps with the smell of the product, not that it is a bad odor, but it smells very natural, not floral or fragrant like other soaps. Before using Angels on Bare Skin, my skin would instantly become dry and irritated after a shower. Now I leave the shower feeling instantly hydrated and smooth. If I am having eczema breakouts on my face, I use this scrub as well. It is gentle enough to use on your face and body which is great because it helps me stretch my dollars.
How To Apply:
- Take a small handful of product and dampen it with the shower water
- Roll product into a ball
- Roll the ball of product all over your body in a circular motion, paying extra attention to dry patches.
Dream Cream: Hands down the BEST lotion I have ever tried. I feel like my skin is literally drinking this product. It sinks into my skin and leaves it looking instantly hydrated. It is not greasy nor does it adds unnecessary shine. Your skin will naturally glow. My favorite thing about this product is the longevity. It last all day and even when you stretch or twist you will not have that dry itch feeling like you need to put more lotion on.
Ro’s Argan Body Conditioner: I decided to try this on my own after reading several reviews. Although my skin had begun to improve drastically by using Angels on Bare Skin and Dream Cream, I was still running into some irritation issues when I would try to shave my legs or armpits in the shower (there is no such thing as TMI when it comes to beauty blogs). After shaving, my legs would be so damn itchy and would even burn when I put lotion on. The shower smoothie is essentially conditioner for your body. After you wash your body, apply the shower smoothie as lotion and rinse. I adore the smell of this product, and how it gives my skin a lot of slip. My legs and armpits no longer feel irritated after a shave, and my skin is so hydrated that using lotion becomes optional (gasp!)
I SWEAR by Lush Cosmetics because (so far) these are the only products that have given me true results. I have even used prescription lotions and creams from the dermatologist and NONE have gotten my skin as soft and glowy as Lush has. My only downside is the price. It is expensive to keep up this regimen but I know if I don’t, I will be forced to deal with awful skin. I would rather bite the bullet, spend the money and live a stress free life (dramatic but true).
