I am a massive fan of LUSH, I could buy everything in there! It all smells super...well lush! And recently I have become
majorly slightly obsessed with their skin care, it is all natural I believe, and they don't include harsh chemicals which is fantastic. I also love how they don't test on animals, and most of their packaging is 100% recycled. The prices are also very reasonable, and I love how you have the option to buy most things in at least 2 sizes if not more, which means they cater for all different budgets. When I was in my local LUSH store around Christmas(woah that seems ages ago now), I was telling one of the lovely women in there how my skin was doing my head in because it was super oily and kept breaking out, after telling her what my skin care routine was at the time she explained that I was being too harsh towards my oily skin so she recommended me a few new products and this was one of them.
She advised me that this was a gentle toning water, and although wouldn't directly treat breakouts like the Tea Tree water they sell, it would help to calm down and reduce the redness in my skin, and the rose water in the product would help to achieve an even skin tone. She was 100% correct!
Firstly, here is what LUSH say:
"This toner is sophisticatedly simple and is intended for skins that need a little extra love and care. Dry, sensitive or mature skins will find the rose water is calming and reduces redness, whilst lavender water will soften the skin and balance sebum production. A gentle tonic for everyday use that will help hydrate the skin without causing it to overreact."
I will never be buying harsh toners again, this is fantastic! It helps to lightly moisturise my skin, thanks to the lavender water, and soothes redness. Since using this my skin hasn't looked nearly, if at all, red and the rose water in the product has definitely helped with some of my scarring and un even looking skin. I spritz this over my face after washing it and then once this is dry I apply my moisturiser and I find this works very well for me. This is very cooling and refreshing and the nozzle on the product distributes the product in a fine mist so that you get even coverage over your face and don't end up with a wet puddle on your face.
I have also found that whilst using this my skin has been less oily, probably because I am not stripping out all the oil from my face and forcing my skin to over compensate for this with even more oil. I love this product and I purchased this 250g bottle and apart from a month or so when I forgot about this, I have been using it twice a day and still have about half left which is great value for money!
As for scent, the scent of this is definitely not overpowering, it is a light smell of rose but you can't smell this once it has settled into you skin, I personally love the scent!
You can pick this 250g bottle up for £7.25 or the 100g bottle for £3.95 which is great if you are trialling the product or want to take it travelling, or even put it in your hand bag to use as a cooling water.
I definitely recommend this, and think that it would be a great product for all skin types!
