This month I decided to try out some products from Lush as I really liked their lip colour that I received in my January Lust Have It beauty box (previous post here). I have read a lot of great reviews about their Dream Cream doing wonders for people who have eczema so I decided to buy it and try it out when I went in to get a free sample of their 9 to 5 Cleanser.
The sample cleanser came in a little plastic container and you could easily get around 4 or 5 uses of the cleanser however I went a little crazy when I first tried it and used up too much! It has quite a strong scent as it has ylang ylang oil and having sensitive skin I am used to using products that are unscented so I immediately thought that I might break out after using this. Having used it for about 3 days now, it works quite well however doesn’t remove my make up so overall I think I might stick to my cleanser wipes as they are easy to use and easily remove my make up at the end of the day.
I purchased the Dream Cream for $28.95 and was really excited to try it out due to all the rave reviews. Again like the cleanser however, it has such a strong scent from the lavender and tea tree oil. My eczema has somewhat gotten quite bad over the past few weeks and I don’t know if it’s the change in weather or my lack of sleep etc but I really wanted to find something that would make it all go away. After using the Dream Cream for the first time on Wednesday my skin felt soft and I felt quite a cooling sensation when I applied this after my shower. Yesterday however, I used it again and I got quite itchy after wearing it for a while 😦 I might try using it again but just on a small part of my arm or something to see what happens because I really want it to work!!
Another new thing I tried recently was the 5am organic yoghurt and OMG it tastes so good!! I initially bought the coffee bean flavour but after tasting that it was so deliciously creamy, my hubby and I went back to Woolworths to buy all the other flavours and they too tasted amazing!
It’s such a gamble sometimes when trying out new body creams and mositurisers as my skin is so sensitive but I guess that’s the only way you get to finding out what works and what doesn’t work right?!
What are some new things you have tried so far this year?
