My LUSH Skin Routine
SKIN ROUTINE MORNING
Step 1. Angels on Bare Skin (cleanser) £5.50/ 100g.
How to use: Splash water on face; take a pea sized amount of product and mix with a little water to make a paste; apply to face gently massaging into skin; rinse well and pat dry.
Step 2. Eau Roma Water (toner) £6.35/ 250g or £3.25/ 100g
Contains: Rose water (helps skin retain its moisture and evens skin tone) and lavender water (gently sooths skin). Tones without drying leave skin cool, soft and supple. Also calms the skin, reducing redness.
How to use: Spay on to cotton pads and gently apply to face OR spay directly on to face to refresh skin.
Step 3. Imperialis (moisturiser) £10.75/ 45g
Step 2. Saving Face (serum)£7.50/20g
Contains: Lime and grapefruit oils (balance sebum, refresh and tone skin); illipe and shea butters (moisturise and soften skin/improves tone). Enhances the effect of your moisturiser/face mask when used underneath. Leaves skin beautifully moisturised, supple and matt.
How to use: Warm product in hands, apply to hands then face or directly on face and massage product into skin well.
Step 3. Celestial (moisturiser) £10.25/ 45g

Leaves skin deeply moisturised, soft and supple (takes longer to sink in though).
NOTE: I only use a different cream at night because I love both Imperialis and Celestial. However if you use the Saving Face under your usual day cream, it will enhance its effects making it a lovely night treatment, without having to buy a separate cream. I’m just so darn indecisive lol.
Contains: Powdered charcoal (exfoliates/ absorbs oils), rhassoul mud (cleanses), black sugar (abrasive exfoliant), avocado oil (softens) and glycerine (locks in moisture).
