The Review | Lush's 'Cosmetic Warrior' face mask.

Oh look, another Lush review, and this time in comes in the form of a yet again another face mask. 

Not so long ago I did a review of their 'Cupcake' face mask, which went down a treat. But this time after my visit to Lush I opted for a different mask to give a go. For oily to combination skin, Cosmetic Warrior claims to combat spots and smooth troubled skin. With it's antiseptic ingredients, garlic, tea tree, honey and deep cleansing kaolin, it's aim is to banish breakouts and even any redness. 

So does it do the job? Yes, being honest as with Cupcake it doesn't work miracles, no spots magically disappeared nor did I wake up looking like a supermodel after using it but it did the job it claims to do quite sufficiently. The smell when compared to the chocolaty goodness of Cupcake isn't the best, a combination of garlic and tea tree oil is pretty prominent, but it's nothing I couldn't deal with. 

This mask is perfect for the colder seasons, if like me, your skin takes a toll in the winter months it will add  moisture into some areas unlike Cupcake which is a lot more drying, ideal for summer. I found my skin was a lot softer after using it, any redness from spots or marks was reduced and the my overall complexion had a little glow.  


What lush face masks do you use?

November Nail Polish.

 L-R: Rimmel 'Little Bo Peep', Rimmel 'Ruby Crush', LA Colours 'Current', Rimmel 'Beige Babe'.

It's been far too long since I have made a post on nail varnish.. possibly a year actually. Why is it always around this time of year, when the weather takes an inevitable turn for the worst I shift my attention to nail colours? Anyway, as it's currently mid way between Autumn and Winter I thought I would put together a little post on some of the colours i'm feelin' this season.

I'm trying to steer clear of the classic gold, green and red colours for the minute, because I am a grinch that will not embrace the Christmas spirit until it is Decemeber. However, I couldn't not include the gorgeous glittery red and silver colour by Rimmel, I think it is something a little unusual and you don't have to go the whole festive hog and paint every nail with it, you could just paint your ring finger for a less full on effect.   The rest are quite muted colours such as grey and brown that are sleek and subtle that go perfectly with a matte overcoat and lastly the only colour not by Rimmel, 'Current' is the ideal transition colour that will see you through both Autumn and Winter. 


What colours will you be wearing this season?
