Musings of the Day: Your Skin, What’s On It?

skincare

I’m always curious what works for people in regards to skin care! Today’s Musings is all about skincare.

What do you use on your skin?

Share it and skip below for my answer!

You already know this answer, Lush. About 98% of my skincare is made up of Lush. Toner, Cleansers, Moisturizers, Etc…..all of it is Lush. I used to be a Philosophy girl but after discovering Lush I’ve stuck with it for about 8 or 9 years (maybe more?!) now. Or just works for me and that’s what skincare is all about. Something that works well and keeps you looking your best!

So what’s your skincare?

The Muse has a certain dislike for Lush when they discontinue her very favorite products! Grrrr why Lush why!? Why must you cease to produce my favorite bath goodies? Why must it all come to end? Why? Why!

Thankfully Lush came up with a somewhat agreeable solution to the Muse’s mourning by introducing the Retro Lush line. This is where Lush “brings back” many old favorites that die hard fans, like the Muse, have been a missing! Thank the gods that they brought back Back for Breakfast Shower Gel because honestly the Muse couldn’t be held responsible if she ran out again!

The Muse remembers it well. She remembers exactly the time that Lush Back for Breakfast bit the big one. It was after Thanksgiving and the Muse had just discovered the joys of Lush one day when it popped up in her Amazon recommendations list, this was many years ago mind you. The Muse never got to experience the joys of Back for Breakfast herself but only second hand as it had been diced from the line up less than a month before the Muse’s discovery of the Lush religion.

However, less than a week later the Muse had scored a large bottle of Back for Breakfast from a Lush forum member in the UK who kindly swapped the bottle. Ever after that the Muse was possessed, obsessed, and mad enough to stalk Back for Breakfast down! By the end of that year (which wasn’t far off) she had gathered together at least 10 bottles of Back for Breakfast to tide her over with the hopes that this would last her for the next 10 years. Sadly, it didn’t!

On the verge of throwing herself off the nearest building the Muse pacified her love for Back of Breakfast and settled on Lush Happy Hippie, not nearly as good but the best one could do.

Why all this insanity for a simple shower gel?

Because it’s just so lovely!

With fresh grapefruit, lemon, and lime juices this shower gel was both tart, fruity, and sweet. It made the Muse’s hair sing in delight and made her shower experience a wonderful morning wake up call! Lush promises with use it’ll wake you up in the AM like no other shower gel and truth be told it does indeed wake up a girl and get her revved for the day ahead. That citrus cocktail of grapefruit, lemons, and limes really makes the Muse sing in the shower. It keeps her hair rather squeaky clean and makes it smell all fruity and fresh like too! Multitask, Multitask! Hair and body loves it!

I can’t begin to tell you how happy I was that Lush finally brought it back and now one can only hope it sticks around for a while otherwise the Muse may need to buy enough to last her for 50 years!

Lush Back for Breakfast Shower Gel, unquestionably Muse Approved for purchase! Get it! You need it, the Muse says so!

Pixi Lip Booster Review

in Pixi

Any chance you wanna revisit some Target goodies with me? How about a Pixi LipGloss?

Jump ahead for it!

Ah meh! Up until now I’ve given Pixi a bum wrap for appearing at my local Target. I thought the line was simply too expensive to make a guest starring appearance at Target of all places. But it seems to be doing well and my prediction that it and the rest of the expensive lines would be in the clearance bin by now (NP, Jemma Kidd, Etc…) hasn’t come to pass. But goes to show that the Muse isn’t always right. I suppose I shouldn’t be too surprised these lines are doing so well considering that Sonia Kaschuk makes a killing at Target so why can’t Pixi and the rest do the same? Obviously, it’s really happening for these lines because I haven’t seen anything yet that hints at their demise although keep in mind they haven’t exactly added to these lines either since their original introduction. You’d think by now you’d see something new pop up for Spring or Summer…but ado it’s still making it’s own at Target.

Up until now I haven’t really liked much of what I tried from the lines but a few pieces have slipped by me such as the Pixi Lip Booster. This I can get on board with!

$18 USD, ouch Target (and Pixi) gets you a chubby tube of moisturizing lip gloss that plumps and conditions lips with a slightly sheer tint. Loves it. It’s a rather great formula of gloss that I really like. I believe I tried one of these year’s ago when Sephora was carrying most of the Pixi line but don’t quote me on that. I love the formula as it’s a nice thick gloss that definitely give lips a fuller look. If you’re looking for a plumping gloss without the sting this would work well although it’s not really plumping in my humblest but simply a thick gloss that gives a fuller lip look. It’s nice and glossy and leaves a high sheen behind with a tiny hint of color. There are several shades to choose from but I only tried one which was labeled no. 10 and is a nice red shade. Either over lipstick or on it’s own it’s great gloss although a tad expensive for picking up at Target.

All in all a rather nice gloss and worth getting if you’re looking for a thick gloss to make lips look fuller but I’d avoid it if you aren’t keen on spending over $20 (taxes!) on a gloss at Target of all places.

What are your favs from Target’s “expensive” line of cosmetics?
