As I blogger I tend to test WAY too much makeup, skincare, fragrance, and beauty bits and bobs. One thing I never did get into testing was skincare. For a very long time, I avoided trying out new lotions and potions because I always blamed my great skin on Lush Cosmetics and was quite happy with my skincare regime from them.
About a year and a half into my adventures on Musings I started to testing way too much skincare from various brands. I was switching up my moisturizer, my toner, and just about everything else. I dunno what prompted me to cheat on Lush when I was so very die hard, faithful to them for such a long time……
Last month I realized that I needed to embraced my Lush again because my skin just wasn’t looking as great as it did when I was using it. Dullness, oily forehead, and even tiny break outs on my jaw line were some of the problems I had been experiencing after leaving my beloved Lush behind.
Although I’ve shared with you my secrets of Lush in the past, I’ve never really sat down and reviewed the items I’ve spoken about in past posts and I think that needs to be changed right now.
Because everyone should about the joys of great skin care.

I’ve traveled alot in my day but I’ve never been to Havana. Do you think it’s all Copacabana-like with Lola, Rico, and Tony? God, I hope so. I’d dance the night away with yellow feathers in my hair, you can be damn sure of that!
Until I get to Havana, I’ll have to settle for the Sephora by OPI Havana Nights Mini Collection to give me that sizzle of Cuban heat!
Twi-harders, I know you’re out there even if you’re way to ashamed to admit your status in our little club. If anyone brings up Eric Northman in this post, you shall suffer the wraith of the Muse. Naaa just kidding Eric is hot and stuff (lick-able as well!) but let’s keep on the topic of the delightful little Edward Cullen for the moment. This is not Team Eric or Team Bill and for the record I’m on Team Lafayette, girlfriend is all kinds of hot, but about Twilight….
Twi-harders and nail enthusiasts can jump knee deep into the new Nox Twilight Nail Collection.
I’d love if I had more time to head to the spa for a facial. Ideally I’d love to just sit back and relax at least twice a month but it never happens. I always feel so pressed for time and sitting back for a facial rarely makes it into my day to day schedule.
I’m lucky enough to have very good skin without any problems however dullness is something I suffer from a fair bit. My skin is very lackluster and in need of a boast most days of its life. One such boast would be a proper exfoliation as this seems to revive and kick start my skin. Dullness is fairly common for those with dry skin and my own fits right into the groove.
Taking my dullness and my lack of time for a facial into consideration I invested nearly $100 on the Kate Somerville ExfoliKate Intensive Exfoliating Treatment in hopes it would not only cure my dull skin but also keep me from having to rearrange my schedule for facials.
On holiday recently I had taken a bus with some friends to Universal Studios. On the return trip someone on the bus removed their shoes and OMG I swear I almost passed out.
I had a hard time holding back my friend Jai as he’s just the type to stand up and say, “Holy shiz who’s feet are smokin’?” But seriously, if you know your feet are the type to sweat and smell why REMOVE your shoes and torture everyone!? How sadistic!
Needless to say they should have grabbed some of the new Avon Footworks Collection to scrub, hydrate, and scent those stale tootsies back into shape again!
Avon FootWorks now comes in a range of funky cool scents (not of the gross foot smell variety) like Cherry Ice and Watermelon!
