The Lush life’s giving me a rush – discovering skincare at Lush!

From an early age my Nan would go on and on and on about how important it is to look after your skin. When I was eleven I really didn’t care but thank god Nan persisted and got me in the habit from an early age.

Recently I was invited by Lush for a full consultation* which not only taught me about the products but, has introduced a few new products into my daily skincare routine. Continue reading “The Lush life’s giving me a rush – discovering skincare at Lush!”

This was the perfect opportunity to get some expert advice on make up for the camera. I booked my appointment a few weeks later and here are the results.
