I am having a trouble sleeping recently and easily get stressed.. but then I realised that my mind was not the only one who's suffer, but my skin too. I didn't remember exactly what happened but I didn't even bother eating junk food and things like that. And lately I am getting back to my old habit, to try to eat clean and take care of my body even better than before.
Last January I went to Singapore for holiday. I was at Ion orchard at that time and suddenly I remembered that my friend told me there's this store that sell home made scrub and soap, and then I found the store.. it called Lush. From the moment I saw the store I already know that 'this is my kind of place' hahaha. I always love home made, and something earthy (made from natural ingredients).
So this friendly store attendance showed me lots of products like soap and scrub. Finally, I bought the lip scrub and the face & body mask. Actually I was going to buy the mask for sensitive skin because my skin type is sensitive and my skin was quite stressed at the moment but most of the mask should be stored in the fridge, and since my holiday took more than a week I didn't buy it. Instead, I bought the best seller one, the Mask of Magnaminty for face &body, which I can keep in the room temperature.

I am so in love with the list scrub.. never thought I would like the product this much. I was always think that it is not necessary to buy things that you can make at home. I mean you can just mix a tea spoon of honey and sugar and there you go.. home made lip scrub. But you know, sometimes we just need something practical and I don't think I have a willingness to do it on a regular basis although it's easy to make one.

I only use like a small amount, and just make sure your lips is not wet and just scrub it gently and leave it for 30 seconds to 1 minute then wipe it off with a wet towel or tissue. It only took like 2 minutes to have a beautiful lips.
It is made of castor sugar, organic jojoba oil, tagetes oil, peppermint oil that gives you a minty and fresh sensation, limonene flavour, and vanilla extract for the sweet fragrance. I have been using this for a month now and all I can say is goodbye to dry and chapped lips. I normally scrub my lips like 2-3 times a week but whenever my lips is dry I will scrub is right away.. because nobody wants a dry lips, especially when they often use a lipstick. But I don't rely 100% to this scrub to get a soft and healthy looking lips, I drink lots of water and eat well too of course!

This mask is also suitable for those who have sensitive skin, like me. So far my skin is quite happy after using this mask :)
Actually I have never used this for my body but this one works quite well on my face. The texture is quite dense and creamy. And since it contains peppermint oil the smell is so refreshing and gives the tingly-cool sensation a bit. I just apply a generous amount (1 small scoop/ 3/4 tablespoon) to my face and let is sit for 10-15 minutes then rinse it off.
You don't have to use a warm water to cleans of your face once the mask is dry, which is something that I like about this mask, and very easy to clean, even tough the direction on the packaging says "gently scrub off with warm water" but room temperature water will do too. I have tried quite a lot of mask and I have to use a warm wet towel to cleanse it off and warm or hot water will open your pores.. so it's just something that bothers me sometimes.

I use this mask twice a week and the result is quite satisfying, my skin is soft and looks more clean after using this mask. Have you tried this mask? And what's you opinion? Let me know!
