Skin Deep - Soft to the touch...

When I was younger, I didn't wear much makeup, washed my face with soap and water and used whatever creams were lying around the house. I wasn't fussy, despite struggling with eczema, having the usual spots on my chin and very sensitive skin. It wasn't until I started at working at Lush, that I really started to care what I was putting on my skin. I don't think many people realise that the lovely sales assistants in all Lush shops are trained on skin, hair and how ingredients work, so when you ask them a question about what you need for your skin, they should know and understand what is best or find out for you. I have loved learning all about ingredients and so want to share some of my favourite things with you!

This will be a weekly post, so if you have a question about your skin or something you have tried, Lush or not, send me your question and I will post your question with a response. I'm really interested in cosmetics, skin and everything surrounding it so let me help you :) You can comment below to send me questions or email me directly, and I will include a couple of questions a week with answers and suggestions. For this week, I am going to share my favourite three body products from Lush that I use almost everyday.

My top three body products from Lush are Vanilla Dee-Lite Body Lotion, Ro's Argan Body Conditioner and King of Skin Body Butter. I chose these three because they all have special qualities and can be used  by everyone. I also use them everyday and just can't get enough of them!

Vanilla Dee-Lite Body Lotion- I use this cream everywhere during the summer (even on my face) and anytime it's humid. It smells like a vanilla milkshake, is a light smooth texture and is full of lovely kiwi fruit which  has an enzyme that helps dissolve dead skin, thereby keeping your lovely fresh and vibrant skin soft and lookin' good.

Ro's Argan Body Conditioner - This is just like a hair conditioner, so you put it on while in the shower and leave it on while you do other showery things. After a couple of minutes, you just gently rinse away any excess, hop out of the shower and pat yourself dry. You will feel so soft, smell like Rose Jam, and as an extra tip, this makes an amazing after leg shave product. I can't get enough of this smell - if you are near a Lush shop, go in and have a smell and test it out.

King of Skin Body Butter - This body butter is amazing, I use it everyday, even if I have already used other moisturisers because I just can't get enough of it. This bar can be used on wet skin in the shower or when you are dry. It has cocoa butter, shea butter, extra virgin coconut oil, organic jojoba oil, almond oil, avocados and fresh bananas. If it's good enough to eat, it's good enough to put on your skin - seriously try this! :)

So there you have it, the beginning of what I hope is something you can help me with! Pop me your questions in the comments below or by email toodalookatie @ !
I can't wait to hear from you all!


  1. Hi Katie, I just found your blog today, from your link of the simply be FB page. I'm really enjoying your posts :)

    I'm new to Lush products, and popped into the Bristol store a couple of weeks ago for a face mask. The woman was very helpful and pointed me in the direction of the oat face mask. (I have very combination skin, both very oily and dry.) I liked the mask, but found I can only use it in the bath or shower, because it is so textured that bits keep falling off. Is there a Lush mask for combination skin that you could recommend that I can wear whilst I'm pottering around the house? Many thanks :)
