LUSH Review: Porridge Soap


A couple of months ago, I went for a small shopping on LUSH at SM North Edsa. It was actually my first to buy at the said brand. Actually, my very reason for buying was to sign for the “Fight Animal Testing Petition” because it’s duty and my passion. It’s not really a news since I have been doing this for a year now. I was really happy to see my signature on the store’s display. I hope you sign the petition too. 🙂

I decided to buy the cheapest since LUSH in here is expensive. Hehehe. So, I picked up the Porridge Soap and I fell in love with the smell. I wanna eat it. Hehehe. I really suck at describing things so I will post the description of the soap given by LUSH.

PORRIDGE

Orange juice

Orange juice refreshes the skin and helps to keep it clear with citric acid.

Pinhead oatmeal

Pinhead oatmeal adds a fantastic texture to our Porridge soap, and calms the skin with the oat milk. The oatmeal also exfoliates your skin and scrubs the dirt away

It’s a nutritious breakfast bar.

Porridge is a very gentle soap that really helps to care as it cleans. When the oats mix with hot water, they create a calming milk that softens your entire body.

Ingredients

Water (Aqua), Rapeseed Oil; Coconut Oil (Brassica napus; Cocos nucifera), Propylene Glycol, Pinhead Oatmeal (Avena sativa), Fresh Organic Orange Juice (Citrus Aurantium dulcis), Titanium Dioxide, Sodium Hydroxide, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Perfume, Labdanum Resinoid (Cistus labdaniferus), Sweet Wild Orange Oil (Citrus sinensis), Glycerine, Sodium Chloride,EDTA, Tetrasodium Editronate, *Limonene

  • What happened to my skin after using it?
                   After my first wash, my skin instantly became soft. With continuous usage for a week, my dry skin became smooth. It exfoliated my skin effectively. My skin used to be really itchy but after using this product, it lessened the itchiness. You can feel the smoothness right after you rinse. So I guess you have to use the product everyday.
  • Does the smell stay all day long?
                   To be honest, the smell doesn’t stay all day long.  But, it does smell really good when you use it in the shower.
  • Is it worth my money?
                   Yes, it’s definitely worth your money. It’s cruelty-free, organic and effective. The product costs
  • Longevity
                    It can last for a month, depending on how you use it and how you take care of it. To make it even last longer, I cut them in small chunks, 6 at most. A small chunk lasts for a week. The whole product can be used for 16 washes but if you cut them, they can be used for an extended amount of time. After I use the soap, I put it in a paper and let it dry there. Don’t store somewhere it could get wet because it would melt, nor put it in hot place.
  • Disadvantages
                     The oats will scatter around the floor. Take the time to clean it. Hehehehehhhe. 😛

Review: Revlon Age Defying Spa Concealer


Okay. So. Uhhh.. I really don’t know how to start a review. Sorry if  I will be missing some points. Anyways, you can still ask questions in comment’s area or in my Formspring account which linked at the second sidebar.

As I have seen on Revlon’s website, there are actually two kinds of concealer for the Age Defying line. What I will be reviewing today is the regular concealer, not the moisturizing one.


Revlon Age Defying Spa Concealer

“Instantly revitalizes and brightens. Protects against fine lines.

  • Stone Therapy minerals instantly energize stressed skin
  • Vitamin C fusion brightens
  • Antioxidants help strengthen skin’s natural defense systems”

The story behind

Some of you will probably ask “You’re 18. Why did you pick up that one?”. I really don’t know. I actually went to Revlon counter and ask for a concealer and the lady recommended this concealer. By the way, I’m in the shade light/medium (002). I bought this way back in April 2010, last summer (I live in the Philippines).

Coverage

The coverage, I would say, is medium. Don’t put too much because if you would, it would be cakey. I have extremely dark under eyes and this stuff  brightens my under eye amazingly. Well, the dark circles were not really invisible but it can lightly be seen. It actually depends on the intensity of your dark circles. The concealer lasts all day. ALL DAY LONG.

Where can I use?

Under eye. I tried using it for my blemishes and other matters but it didn’t worked out so well. I can say through my experience that this concealer is intended for under eye dark circles.

Why is it amazing?

Because it lasts all day long and it has SPF 15! How cool is that? It  is age defying and has sun protection. And, it lasts for about a year. I used like almost everyday but I still have not ran out. I highly recommend this. 🙂

How much is this and where can I find it?

I bought this at Duty Free Philippines for $14. I do not how much is this in the Philippine Peso. Sorry.  🙂

You can find these at Watsons, Marrionaud (Mall of Asia) and SM Deparment Stores.
