Bloody hell! It's February already... Valentine's Day is just around the corner and it's certainly the perfect excuse to give your skin a good 'ole pamper (as well as being spoilt of course).
Who doesn't love a little bit of LUSH?  Every time I walk past their shop I can smell how wonderful and perfect everything is inside, then I suddenly find myself walking through the door and smelling everything in there... (who doesn't do that though?) 
A few weeks ago when I was out shopping in Middlesbrough I came across the LUSH shop, obviously I went in and looked around.  I came across two items 'Angels on bare skin' cleanser which I'd heard so much about and 'Love Lettuce' face mask which I read a review on recently and liked the sound of, both items came to around £13 which isn't exactly breaking the bank and I was really excited to hurry home to try them both out...
Angels On Bare Skin:-  this is a cleanser which can be used for both face and body.  It has a very gritty texture which scrubs away dirt leaving it soft to the touch, the 'grit' is actually ground almonds.  I use this morning and night to thoroughly cleanse my acne prone skin, it's lightly abrasive so it's gentle enough to use daily and I find that it removes makeup quite well too.  The scent isn't the best but if the product itself does a decent job then the smell doesn't bother me.
Love Lettuce:-  this is a fresh face mask which doubles up as an exfoliator.  It leaves my skin feeling soft and clean, again it doesn't have the best scent but as long as it does a good job then I couldn't care less about how it smells.  These face masks are best kept in the fridge to stay cool, when you apply them on your skin it feels very refreshing which is a big thumbs up!  I normally use this mask 2-3 times per week.

It's been almost 4 weeks since using both products and my skin has noticeably improved.  It's certainly nowhere near perfect but the acne which flared up after Christmas has now pretty much none existent, my skin feels cleansed and soft to the touch after using both of these skin products and I'm so pleased I gave them a try.  The packaging is basic but has all the information you need to know including ingredients and a best before date.  I'll definitely repurchase both of these items especially the cleanser and I'll be giving some of the other face masks a try.

Also:  Did you know that if you take back 5 empty (and clean) full-size Lush pots or tubes, you get a free face mask?... what a good little incentive!

Have you tried any of these? let me know in the comments below...
