Review: Lush's 'Tea Tree Water'

LUSH Tea Tree Toner Water


Hello chick peas! As I never really had any sort of interest in skincare before blogging, I've been experimenting with different products. Getting a recommendation from someone is easy, but finding something by your self that is actually good & suits your skin is a difficult task! I really love the fact that Lush use fresh and organic fruit & vegetables as well as 'safe synthetics', as described on their website. It definitely makes me feel a lot better knowing that I'm using natural and non-damaging products on my skin!

First of all, I'm a sucker for anything tea tree. As I, like anyone else, hate getting spots, tea tree has some sort of clarifying magic that makes my skin look a hell of a lot clearer! A good toner is designed to cleanse your skin, shrink the appearance of pores and most importantly, to replenish your skin back to it's natural pH level. It also removes any excess dirt/makeup that your cleanser may have missed! A bonus about this product is that not only does it seem to be doing all of the above, but it makes me feel refreshed in myself due to seeing a change almost straight away. My skin always looks and feels healthier after applying this. I decided on this toner as it's described to 'Come to the aid of skin that has emergencies', and at this moment in time, this is me! After cleansing, I simply spray the product twice onto a cotton pad a whisk it around my face. It has a very medicinal scent, reminding me of a cough medicine I used when I was little and I surprisingly love it. This product is a 'Toner Water'; It hasn't got a high concentration of the ingredients, it's just got the perfect amount to put the essential oils back into the skin without 'overdoing' it, so to speak. I have sensitive skin and this doesn't irritate it at all, yet another reason why I love it! The product is described to work best for 'oily & spot prone' skin but I beg to differ... I have dry skin and it still works wonders! In my opinion, this is suitable for all skin types! I've yet to find any fault with this product, but as I haven't experimented with other toners, you never know, this may be missing something! Overall rating - 8/10

Just a little personal update - I have my first driving lesson on Thursday, how exciting! I'm super nervous as I don't know anything about cars! Also I got accepted into my local University, after taking a year out after college, to study Marketing & Advertising. I'm so pleased! Finally, the brand I work for, Laska Sak, had their first 'Jam Session' on Friday night, featuring local talent and the lovely Jake Quickenden from the X Factor, here's a picture of us together!

    i just bought my first toner the other day - its from the simple range so it was cheap enough, but it doesnt seem to be doing anything spectacular! my skin just feels regular-old-clean after i use it!

  6. I must remember to give this a go, I get the occasional breakout but I have really sensitive skin. It might be an idea to use something natural like this.

    P.S You two actually look really good together - haha! ;)
