We alllllllll know I’m a massive Lush fan and today I want to talk about potentially one of my favourite Lush products and one that I think doesn’t get the attention it deserves.

The Let the Good Times Roll Cleanser.

I purchased this product about 4 months ago now and I can safely say, I am a convert. I bought it as I wasn’t really getting along with the Aqua Marina face cleanser (namely the smell) and so I purchased it on a bit of a whim and I’m SO glad I did.

Firstly, it smells heavenly. Like sweet popcorn. But not sickly sweet.

Secondly, it is made with polenta so it has really tiny grains in so acts as a lovely light exfoliator.

Thirdly, when you wash it off your face just feels so silky soft it’s unreal.

I can’t get enough of this product. I’ve been using it 3-4 times a week and as I’m getting closer and closer to the bottom of the pot, I know this is going to be a definite re-purchase for me.

Like most Lush cleansers, you take a a small amount in the palm of your hand, add a little water or put it straight into a wet hand and gradually mix it into a paste. The paste is just so smooth an beautiful to apply, and the small grains really feel like they clean the skin.

I’m not too sure about the actual bits of popcorn in it, I’ve tended to just pick those out, but I guess it adds to the theme.

The only slightly confusing element of the product is that I would say it’s nothing like a cleanser, and everything like an exfoliator. It’s too gritty for everyday make up removal, or at least for my skin it is. But it’s perfect for using a few times a week to brighten your complexion.

It’s all natural and cruelty free as well, so  I would definitely recommend giving it a go.

Let me know if you try it!

What are your favourite Lush products?

So guys, a Lush Haul was well overdue. It’s been about 3 months since I ventured into my local Lush and BOY was my skin unhappy about it.

I picked up a few different products I haven’t tried before, including one that I have been waiting to try in forever: Million Dollar Moisturiser.

Now I’m pretty late to the party on this one, but what with buying an Apartment, my bank balance wasn’t loving Million Dollar quite as much as the rest of Blog World, but I thought the time was right to invest in this wonder product so I can see if it really lives up to the hype.

I’m excited to try it!

For those of you who haven’t heard about or used Million Dollar Moisturiser before, it gets great reviews on Beauty Blogs for being a really smooth, non-oily easy moisteriser that hydrates your skin and is brilliant for using underneath make-up. I haven’t heard any bad reviews about it so far, so that’s a good enough reason in my book to give it a go!

I’m pretty picky when it comes to moisturiser. I have quite normal skin I think, but I like moisturisers that I can’t feel or I’m not aware of throughout the day. I don’t like them to make your make up feel heavy or oily as the day goes on. And for that reason I probably try out new moisturisers less than I should.

I used to swear by Clinque’s Dramatically Different Moisturising Lotion and I used it constantly, day and night for about 3 years, but I’m fairly sure they changed the formula slightly about 1 year or so ago because it started to feel really different on my skin and not as luxurious – plus unfortunately Clinque aren’t a cruelty free company, so I won’t be repurchasing.

So all in all, it was time for something new. I’m more and more aware of how important it is to look after my skin and protect it as much as possible. Million Dollar is SPF 30 which is brilliant protection for your face throughout the day.

I’ll report back and let you know how I’m getting on and whether or not this really is the holy grail of moisturisers.
