My super overdue post: LUSH and Haul

So here is my long overdue post that I was supposed to complete weeks ago lol. I purchased some masks from

The top one is the Bright up nano eye mask. It states that it eliminates dark circles and tightens eye zone. Includes 7 pairs, cost $6.40 USD. I haven't tried it yet, but I'll let you know if it does as it states. The reviews seem to be quite good so I am looking forward to not looking like a panda anymore :P

The bottom package is the My Beauty Diary Pinky Tender Mini Set and costs $16.00 USD. It includes the Japanese Cherry BlossomMask x4, Bulgarian White Rose Mask x 4, White Truffle Fantastic Whitening Mask x1, and a small tube of the Skin 79 BB cream ^_^

I have already tried the Japanese Cherry blossom mask and I was satisfied with it. Not overly satisfied, just satisfied if that makes sense lol. It was hydrating, but I didn't really notice a difference on my skin, even though I left it on my skin longer than recommended. Oh btw..I'm still looking for a really good moisturizer that contains SPF, so if you have any suggestions, pass them my way!

So I had to go to vancouver for work and ended up purchasing some items from LUSH as I was waiting in the airport! >_<

I ended up getting an exfoliator: Ocean Salt and a moisturizer: Imperialis. I tried both items in store and it seemed quite nice so I bought both.

The Ocean salt comes unmixed. It states on the tub: "We take the time and the coconut (and grapefruit and sea salt) and mix them up together in our stimulating, fruity, vodka-based face scrub. For a complexion that glows." 120 g $17.95 CAD

I haven't used the the Ocean salt yet, but I have used the moisturizer while I was on my trip

The girl stated that this tub should last me for approx 4 months..not bad, not bad I thought. It is very hydrating and I am very, very pleased with how it leaves my skin. I just wish it had some SPF in it. It states on the tub: "Made with lavender, orange flowers and tiger lilies to create well balanced skin. Good for faces that are oily in places and dry in others or a troublesome T-zone." 45 g.

Also received a free shampoo sample :)

I'm super excited to try out the masks and the BB cream....Once things start to settle down, I'm going to give myself a personal day, relax and let my skin absorb what there is to offer in those ever so popular Beauty Diary Masks ^^


  1. woohoo for masks! heheh, especially since I think vancouver is more drying at this time of the year! hope you had a good work trip! (i always find work trips to be so long and exhausting).
    i think you'll like the skin 79 bb cream! i personally don't find it that hard to blend but is still a little heavy for me

  2. whoo!haul!
    Airport wait time is just pure evil to the bank, i always end up with tons of stuff that I just buy to pass boredom T.T
