Brazened Honey Fresh Face Mask

Brazened Honey is a great mask for a detox and for when you want to reawaken tired skin. It contains many ingredients designed to deeply cleanse, improve circulation and brighten the complexion.

This bright mustard coloured mask contains a multitude of Ayurvedic herbs and spices. Ayurvedic medicine is one of the world’s oldest holistic healing systems. It was developed more than 3,000 years ago in India and is based on the belief that health and wellness depend on a delicate balance between the mind, body, and spirit. A lot of the treatments are plant based, using herbs and spices.

Fresh Fennel is used for it’s antibacterial properties to cleanse the skin and is also very stimulating, getting the blood flowing to the skin, reawakening the complexion. Anti-inflammatory Ginger and soothing Clove Bud Oil are also effective stimulants.

Turmeric is added for it’s soothing and antioxidant qualities and Parsley, Coriander and Cardamom also feature to help purify the skin.

Other fantastic cleansing ingredients are Kaolin, Sage; Rosemary and Juniperberry Infusion and Fresh Lime Juice. Kaolin, which features in a lot of Lush’s fresh face masks makes up a majority of the base and draws out impurities. The infusion of the three botanicals is not only antiseptic but also help to balance the skin’s sebum production and refreshing Lime Juice brightens and eats away at any excess oils.

Brazened Honey also features Honey and Free-Range Eggs so sadly this product isn’t currently vegan. Honey is not only naturally anti-bacterial, it’s also incredibly moisturising, whilst protein rich Eggs contain lots of vitamin A which helps to maintain healthy skin by regulating sebum production.

I love the feeling of my skin after using this face mask, it feels so smooth and polished due to it containing Ground Almond Shells to give a light exfoliation, but also because of the wonderful purifying ingredients. It really gives me a glow and is perfect for those sluggish mornings! Personally, I’m not a massive fan of the spicy, herbal scent but I can definitely look past if for the great benefits!

Sparkly Pumpkin Bubble Bar

A Lush Halloween classic.

Not gonna lie, this product isn’t the prettiest of bubble bars. Like pumpkins themselves, these come in all different sizes, some being almost spherical while others are flatter and kinda look like they’ve been squashed. I’ve got no idea if this is deliberate but I can tell you that no Sparkly Pumpkin is the same shape as another, so who knows?

The actual bubble bar is orange coloured and is covered in bright gold lustre and fun fact – the details on the top are added using whisks! Theres also a lil cinnamon stick poked in the top to resemble a stalk.

With a complex scent made up of Juniperberry, Lime and Grapefruit Oils it’s got an interesting smell. You’d expect the Grapefruit and the Lime to give a strong zesty scent but mixed with the Juniperberry it’s more of a woody, fruity aroma that’s really suitable for autumnal baths.

Depending on the size of your Sparkly Pumpkin, you can definitely get at least two baths out of it (even from the smaller ones). Though because I’m excessive I used the whole thing and created a mountain of fluffy bubbles!

Once crumbled, Sparkly Pumpkin turns the water a warming orange colour that’s perfect on a crisp autumnal evening. Hints of glitter sparkle through the water but it’s nothing compared to the likes of Sunnyside and I can barely notice any left on my skin, so glitter-haters go wild! I literally had the best time using this, I felt so comforted and snug with my orange bubble mountain bath, my autumnal candles and an acoustic playlist. I love this season!

My skin feels somewhat softer than it was before, not as noticeable as with other bubble bars but it’s definitely a change and I can still smell the product a good few hours after which is a bonus for when you’re about to go to bed!

As such an iconic part of Lush Halloween, I really doubt they’ll discon it for next year’s release but you never know so get it while stocks last online! It’s the perfect product to get you feeling the season!
