Organic bath

While passing by Lush at the mall, I decided to go inside to check out the strongly scented merchandise.

I sniffed at most of their bar soaps. And I am happy to have sniffed something that I like, make that two of a something.

I am liking Bohemian and Sexy peel, both citrus scented. Citrus scents never fail to perk me up! Zingy, revitalizing and energizing! I really like the scent of it.

So, I am hard pressed on choosing only one as I have a lot of soaps stocked at home. In the end I chose Sexy peel. (just because, of the sexy! hahahaha!)

Lush’s Sexy peel soap

Lush is a cosmetics company based in the United Kingdom. Lush makes and sells a variety of handmade products, including soaps, shower gels, shampoos and hair conditioners, bath bombs, bubble bars, hand and body lotions and face masks. That are all organic and without any animal fat! Lush uses fruit and vegetables, essential oils, synthetic ingredients, honey and beeswax in their products.

Simple, straightforward and honest.

  • They are also organic and doesn’t test on animals! A definite plus point! They test on volunteers instead. 

Lush products are vegetarian and uses less preservatives and feature grapefruit juice, vanilla beans, avocado butter, rosemary oil, and fresh papaya and coconut. They also contain more traditional soap ingredients, including glycerin, linalool, and methyl- and propyl-parabens.

*The safety of these parabens? they are made from plant materials. Only the liquid products contain parabens. 


What they say:

Super citrus soap, bursting with fresh a-peel. It’s time to bring Sexy to the shower. Jump start your morning with a juicy citrus splash of organic orange juice and zesty lime oil. It’s the perfect solution to recharge your sex appeal when you’re feeling sluggish. Simply unpeel your clothes and get to work with our scrubby soap loaded with citrus peels to exfoliate and tone your skin while you suds up. You’ll feel fresh and squeaky clean again in no time and the revitalizing citrus juices and oils will get your senses going.

Do they live up to the hype?

The citrus-y smell is good! Makes me happy to get in the shower. Provided that this soap is organic, it actually produces a good amount of lather. It has lemon zests that would scrub your skin and this is good and bad at the same time, It is good since it mildly exfoliates the skin, but when the citrus zests start poking out it can be a bit harsh. It makes me feel squeaky clean after the bath, but without that citrus-y scent, all that amazing smell is left at the shower.  This is good for oily skinned people, but I will not recommend it to dry skinned people, as it can be a bit drying. I think this will also be good for a summer soap. However, I see nothing special about this soap. Would try another soap from lush next time.

*Price? I got this for 232.75php. (It is sold for 245php for 100 grams.)

Mint Condition

I have a love for everything minty!

The color, the scent, the sweet flavor with a cool aftertaste.

I really like the coolness of it. That is why when my lip balm ran out, I wanted something minty.

Good thing I found this last Sunday!

EOS Lip balm in Sweet Mint

EOS Lip balm in Sweet Mint

EOS  (Evolution of Smooth) lip balms have been around for a while but, they weren’t easy to find in the Philippines.

I was actually smitten by its egg shaped packaging. Cute right?

  • They are also organic and doesn’t test on animals! A definite plus point!

I was told that this product was popular, and even Ed Westwick uses it! And I was like, Okay. Here is my money. 

If I cant get a kiss from Ed Westwick, I might as well get his lip balm instead!

Do they live up to the hype?

I find the product true to its name, sweet and minty, it is also not sticky, its more of waxy. And the shape is something new, although I prefer a stick type as this round thing can be bulky. (to bring on a clutch, place in jeans pocket) Easy application!  Hold your lips in their normal position (you don’t have to make the O lips) and with just one quick swipe the large round balm covers both lips at once! But, you would have to keep this in a cool place, as this lip balm has the tendency to melt. In terms of moisturizing, I find it fair, nothing special. I think this balm would last long since there is a good amount of product in the container. No residue.

They come in other flavors/variants too: Summer Fruits (which is the “original” flavor), Lemon Drop (with added SPF), Honeysuckle Honeydew, Tangerine (Medicated)

Their promise: eos lip balm is 95% organic, 100% natural, and paraben and petrolatum free. Packed with antioxidant-rich vitamin E, soothing shea butter and jojoba oil, eos keeps your lips moist, soft and sensationally smooth.

*Price? I got this for 250php.
