I went to the Lush store at Universal City Walk this past Friday. The store was pretty busy. I found the salespeople to be very helpful although at times they can be a little overbearing about wanting you to try everything. For reference, I have normal/combination skin, occasional mild acne and I'm in my 30s. I ended up taking home the items above:
- Herbalism Cleanser - I originally wanted to get the Angels on Bare Skin Cleanser but the salesgirl advised me to get Herbalism since it's summer and my t-zone tends to get oily in the summer. She told me to save the Angels Cleanser for the winter since it is more moisturizing. I also asked about Dark Angels since it has charcoal but I was advised that it is recommended for people with oily skin who are prone to breakouts. Herbalism expires in 3 months. The amount I purchased above is good for 1 month.
- Cupcake Mask - I wasn't sure which fresh face mask to get when I walked in. I was thinking maybe Sacred Truth but based on my skin and the season, the salesgirl recommended Cupcake. I was excited since I actually wanted to try this one but on the Lush website it's recommended for teenage skin. A teenager I am not, that's for sure. Smells like...cupcakes! This masks expires in 3 weeks or less. It needs to be refrigerated.
- Mint Julips Lip Scrub - They had 3 flavors to choose from: Bubblegum, Mint Julips and Sweet Lips (chocolate). I chose Mint Julips because I like mint and chocolate together. The scrubbing granules in this are huge. Smells delicious though!
- Honey Trap Lip Balm - Had read about this and wanted to try it. Very moisturizing and smells yummy.
I will try to review my these items later, after using them for a while. You can find Lush products here: http://www.lush.com/
