LUSH Cosmetic Warrior and Grease Lightning Skin Care Review

I never used to have bad skin or have any breakouts, but for the last couple of years my face hasn't been free of a blemish and it really does get me down. Spending time hunting for the miracle foundation that will make my skin perfect, or the skin product I can always rely on as a quick-fix to stop a breakout has been a grueling task. So, after I'd heard great things about these products from LUSH Cosmetics I couldn't resist trying them out. 

I was expecting bigger things from this product, and after using it at least once a week for the last month I don't think it's actually made any difference to my skin apart from making it feel softer directly after washing it off. Some people seem to have an issue with the smell, but weirdly I actually quite liked it. It just smelt... fresh I guess. It claims it is "A Superhero face mask to combat spots, cleanse dirt, and soothe all troubled skins". I really didn't see any big change with my skin after using this, and I won't be buying it again. But don't rule it out, just because it didn't work on my skin doesn't mean it won't work on somebody else's!

Now, this product is a whole different story. Although I was quite surprised at the size of the bottle when I saw it in the shop, it has lasted me a while. This product is great as a quick-fix spot treatment to reduce redness and to stop spots from well, getting any worse. One thing I like about this product is that you can feel it working, the gel formula soothes the skin and it is absorbed quickly. Before I started using this product, I was using Simple Spotless Skin rapid action spot zapper, which is slightly cheaper and does last longer. I'm glad I tried out a new product, and although I was quite impressed, I'm not sure if I'll carry on with it. I feel like exploring skincare brands a bit more before I make a commitment. Does anyone have any they'd like to recommend?

I also need some advice on a good concealer, and has anyone tried out Estee Lauder Doublewear Foundation before? I'm thinking about trying it out.

  1. The grease lightening spot cream is great! I cant recommend it enough.

    Lush products are always so good in my opinion

  2. I haven't tried EL double wear but I swear by EL Lucidity foundation, such good quality and makes my skin look and feel great. Def recommend!

  3. I really like the look and sound of Grease Lightning, plus the name is awesome :D I use Witch products all the time now and they've really helped my skin! Every night I apply the naturally clear Blemish Stick on any redness and spots and it's working so far :) x

  4. @Tanesha-Marie - Over the years I've spent more time going in to LUSH shops for the glorious smell rather than actually trying the products, and although I agree that Grease Lightening is effective, I wasn't so impressed with the face mask i'm afraid.

    @Nicole - I'll have a look in to that one, thank you! :)

    @Whimsical Wolf - Ha, I know It's very witty. I was quite surprised at the bottle size though, quite expensive for what you get. Oh yes, I tried Witch a few years ago and I can't remember if it worked or not, so may have to give it another go. Thank you!
