You might remember I wrote about the bad affect the Garnier Moisture Bomb range had on my already dehydrated skin. It became even more dehydrated, flaky across my T-zone and on top of that it was very sensitive. When it wasn’t clearing up I decided to speak to the staff in Lush to see if any of their products might help. After trying Skin Drink on the back of my hand, I was convinced that this would be what would help my skin recover.
Skin Drink is packed full of oils and butters, and is described as having a rose and orange neroli scent. I don’t agree with those notes as to me the scent of the sesame oil was the overarching nutty scent. Some people don’t like the fact this product smells nutty but I really like it – it makes a nice change from the usual scents you get in skincare ranges!
You don’t need much of this product to coat your entire face. It doesn’t leave your face feeling greasy despite all the oils, just pleasantly plump. I use it morning and evening, applying slightly more in the evening to let it sink in overnight. Compared to a lot of stuff you can pick up in Boots, it’s a pricier product at £13.95 for 45g. However if you know your Lush products you’ll know that’s pretty reasonable for a Lush moisturiser!
So did my skin drink Skin Drink up?
Absolutely! Within a couple of days of using this product my skin began to look a million times better. The flakiness began to disappear and the sensitivity began to reduce. I’m now back to chopping and changing my moisturisers now my skin has calmed down, but I won’t be without this in my collection to help soothe any skin flare ups!
What product do you turn to for those nasty skincare flare ups?
