Want It: Lush Oatifix Fresh Face Mask

Lush+Oatifix

Although I’m the first one to admit that my beloved Lush does have some products that don’t work…..

Ahem….Lush Fresh Face Mask.

No worky.

I’ve tried them all and I honestly never see incredible results after use. You’d think with all those good for you bits inside that your face would be glowing after use, not so much.

But that doesn’t stop me from wanting the brand new Lush Oatifix Fresh Face Mask. It’s too tempting with it’s blend of fresh bananas, oatmeal, almonds, and vanilla..god my stomach is grumbling sounds good enough to eat to me!

Ground almonds exfoliating dead skin, bananas are a great nutritious treat for your skin as they soften and reduce redness. Although I don’t sport redness I could get on board with some extra softness.

I’ll take two thanks so much.

Available now from Lush UK and soon to follow around the rest of this world.

Musings of the Day: Who Influences Your Beauty Purchases?

You read beauty blogs, you read consumer reviews on forums and beauty sites, you read magazines, and you watch TV adverts.

Question is of all those things who is it that influences your beauty purchases the most?

musings

Is it something that you see on your fav beauty blog? Or maybe a friend told you how you have to try out this new shampoo she loves. How about TV advertisements or magazines?

Who Influences Your Beauty Purchases?

Jump ahead to hear my influences!

For the most part I’m influenced by some of my fav beauty bloggers and also websites and the like. Say I wander onto Sephora and see something that captures my interests, that will likely cause an immediate need to purchase an item. I’m one that loves pretty pictures and the likes. If I see something advertised on a model such as items from many Bobbi Brown launches, I instantly want it as the model is always so picture perfect and flawless.

I’m also a huge follower and reader of beauty blogs so those also influence my need for product.

Forums and online communities also feed my need for beauty.

How about you?

Would You Buy It? Kate Somerville Deep Tissue Repair Cream

Kate+Somerville+Deep+Tissue+Repair+Cream

The Muse does so wonder how far are you willing to go for your skin? Me, I’d probably go far but not too far….

I recently came across Kate Somerville Deep Tissue Repair Cream and noticed that a 1oz size is $150 but that’s nothing get this a 5oz size is $500 bucks!

Whoa.

Do you think it does dishes and walks the dog for that price?

This is an age-defying moisturizer which contains something called Peptide K8. Supposedly it’s one of the most advantaged anti-aging ingredients ever. This is supposed to literally transform your face!

I actually find myself craving fine lines at the moment just so I can try it and see what happens…is that terribly weird?

Question is would you buy it for that price?

Jump ahead to hear my babble.

I’d possibly dish out $150 but I’m unsure I’d go for $500 dollars for a moisturizer. That’s a bit above my budget and I sure could think of a dozen other things to do with $500 big ones and it doesn’t involve moisturizer.

Ok, I’ll be honest, I’m kinda second guessing even $150 bucks….the most I’m willing to dish out for skin care of any kind is in the $50-$65 range.

How about you?

Big spender?

Would you buy Kate Somerville Deep Tissue Repair Cream?

What if I told you it takes out the garbage and gets wrinkles off your face?

Convinced now?

Tips and Tricks: Cool Your Tired, Dull Skin Off

tips

Dramatization:

You come home. You’re tired, you’re hot, you’re skin is dull, lackluster, and suffering from a long stressful day.

Ever have these days?

Here’s the key to perking yourself up after a really long day.

Take your favorite cleansing wipes, remove one from the package. Now get yourself a sandwich baggie preferably one with a zip lock of some sort. Place your cleansing wipe inside the bag and freeze it in your freezer.

Picture+138

When you get home from a hot day, pop the cleansing wipe out and let it thaw for a few seconds, now wipe your makeup and stressful day off your face!

Ahhhh cool, refreshing. Great way to distress!
