How to: | Oh So Soft Hands

Ok, so almost all of us want one of those kind of hands where when someone just brushes or accidentally touches them we want their reaction to be " WOW, your hands are so soft !!"
Well, i have just discovered the very secret to getting those amazingly soft, smooth, delicious smelling hands.

My friend Jo and i recently went to have a look at the Laura Mercier makeup collection, and as we were looking, Jo kept raving about the body cream called Creme Broulee and how amazing it was and how delicious it smelt.  I was quite intrigued and so i asked the sales lady if i could smell all of their available body scents.  They were all divine but the one scent that Jo and myself fell in love with was the Ambre Vanilla collection.  Oh my goodness how spectacular that scent was. It didn't give me a headache like most scents do which is a huge plus for me.

Trying out the tester body cream souflee, i immediately knew that this collection just had to be mine.  The cream itself was so light, liquid almost.  A little went a long way, and it spread out so smoothly, so evenly, so lightly.  This is what the definition of what a cream is.  

But to my dismay, they were sold out of everything in that scent except for a small hand cream and body butter.  I was heart broken. I was (and still am) desperate to get my hands on the body cream souflee, shower gel, honey bath, and body scrub.  (You shall be mine i promise.) hehe.

I decided to get the hand cream.  Best decision of the day believe me.  

I applied some on my hands. 
Non-greasy perfection.  
My hands just soaked up the cream in no time.  After that, i could not stop touching my hands or smelling them !! My hands got so hydrated and looked so healthy if that is possible.  And the scent, no joke, lasted about 5 hours after the application if not more!! 
I felt like such a lady with my amazing hands. Just as they should be and just as i should always feel like.  It is these kinds of products that every lady should have and use daily.

I cant rave about this product enough. I HIGHLY,HIGHLY recommend that you purchase it.

Lush Products | Lips

I don't know about you, but during the cold months my lips turn SUPER dry therefore I tend to pick at the dry areas....very attractive.

So I popped into Lush the other day and i asked the lovely lady what the best remedy is.  She recommended that I try one of the lip scrubs they had.  Of course with me having a sweet tooth I just had to go with the vanilla and chocolate sugar lip scrub.  Trying it out at the store the results were absolutely amazing!! They were soft and my lipstick easily went on. 
Its basically sugar (yum) with a hint of vanilla and chocolate (double yum), which made it hard for me not to keep licking my lips.  You just take a little amount (or else it will just fall off your lips) and scrub your lips with your finger.  leave for a minute then lick your lips since they are all natural ingredients - in fact that's what the lady told me to do.  For extra soft lips, repeat and leave it on a little longer.

And ofourse how can anyone go into lush and just buy 1 item?
So I found this beautiful ruby lip balm called A Million Kisses. I applied it on after the lip scrub and let just tell you....hello perfect combination, especially for winter.  It is a bit hard to remove off of your finger though.  Plus you can increase the darkness of the colour buy just applying more layers.

I highly recommend that you check them out whenever you next visit Lush.  They always have something for everyone.
