So I've been using these products for almost 2 months now, So I guess that means, I'm able to conduct a better review with the following products. ^_^ And I sure do hope, it helps some of you figure out whether or not these products will work for you or not.
Anyways, just a little fyi about me and the type of skin i have, just to let some of you know just in case you guys don't know yet. I have oily, sensitive & problem prone skin. I started breaking out when I was in my junior year of high school. However, it wasn't like severe acne or anything like that. But when I started my freshman year in College I noticed a big difference. =/ And NO! not the good kind of different but the bad kind. I started to notice that I've been breaking out more not only the occassional pimples here and there (esp. on my forehead and chin) but I also started breaking out on my cheeks -_- which totally pissed me off. And being the impatient person that I'am, of course I would pick on those pimples and it would leave me acne marks afterwards & I would break out every week, it just seems like it never wants to go away, which pissed me off.
I know I've talked about this before and how I've used almost every other acne fighting cleaners or treatments such as Proactiv & Murad & everything else. And believe me when I say this, but NONE worked for me. Maybe for a bit I'd see a few less pimples here and there but they would always find their way back onto my face. I felt almost defeated and my self esteem just kept going down the drain, as I found myself covering my imperfections with a ton of makeup, hence making my face worse =/
Until I tried using LUSH (not only that, but I started to eat more healthier as well. I also drink more water now & try sleeping as early as I can. I also use more organic & natural or homemade skincare) And, as shocking as it seems, it did change~ my breakouts lessen & I only get little pimples here and there but now...hardly. My face has gotten less oily with or without makeup. Although, I can't go back in time and stopped myself from picking on those pimples, which now has left me permanent scars, I know that over time...it'll be all healed & i'll get my old face back ^_^ So here is my HG when it comes to skincare <33
Lush's Enzymion Facial Moisturizer
Fruity moisturizer makes oily skin matte and dull skin radiant
-- It smells really good, but not overbearingly strong.
-- Gives you a matte finish to your face & doesn't leave it with an oily / greesy feel to it
-- Little goes a long way (literally!!!~ unless you go moisturizer happy)
-- Although it will make your skin happy, it will make your wallet sad. This baby is $35.90,
(but trust me...this is a good investment & I'm an el-cheapo when it comes to stuff, but I just love this too much <3 )
OVER ALL: 4.5/5
WOULD I BUY/ RECOMMEND THIS? YES!!!!

Lush's Fresh Farmacy Face Soap
Cleansing chamomile bar for troublesome skin
-- Does wonders to my problem prone skin
(cause of this i have not been breaking out lately)
-- Leaves a squeeky clean feeling after you wash it off your face
-- Doesn't dry my skin
(unlike others who claim that it has, guess it just works good for me)
-- Pretty affordable
-- Nothing really, except it could be a bit messy.
(it's best that you chop in in little chunks instead of using the whole chunk that they give you)
OVER ALL: 5/5
WOULD I BUY/ RECOMMED THIS? ABSOLUTELY!
