Pumpkin Face Mask

image

This face mask feels amazing! It leaves your face feeling so soft. The pumpkin smells fantastic and is packed with vitamins and antioxidants. Plus, it’s super easy to make! I made this mask for two people,  if this is for a personal spa day just divide in half.

2 tbsp pureed pumpkin
1 tsp almond milk
1 tsp raw sugar
1 tsp oats (or oatmeal)

Lightly blend (I used an immersion blender) until well combined. Apply, leave on for 10-15, rinse off with warm water,  pat dry.

Lush Cosmetics

With an Ethical Buying team traveling the world, meeting suppliers, learning about ingredients sources, meeting growers and producers, and ensuring fair work conditions and care for the environment, and the great campaigns they support, you can feel pretty good about the products you are getting from Lush.

Their website states the belief that what they are buying should have a positive impact on the community that they are working with, and that this is a big part of why they work with small scale producers.

It also states that:
-they believe in using fresh fruit and vegetables, fine essential oils and safe synthetics for their handmade cosmetics.

-they invent their own products and fragrances, making them by hand using little or no preservative or packaging, using only vegetarian ingredients and letting you know when it was made. Each packaged product has a great little sticker on it with the face and name of the person who made it along with the date it was made and when to use it by.

Here’s the back of my face mask.

-and! They believe in buying ingredients only from companies that do not conduct or commission tests on animals and in testing our products on humans.
Woo!

I absolutely love their products. Bath bombs with bubbles for days, bath melts that make a bath even more luxurious than bath time already is (some of them even release little flowers!), face masks that smell so good you’re tempted to keep them on, lotions that leave you feeling soft and smelling amazing,  shampoo that gives your hair it’s own spa day, and so much more.

I bought ‘Fun’ this time,  I can’t wait to try it out. It’s a play dough like soap that you can play with, use to make a bubble bath, use on your body or in your hair. It comes in multiple lovely scents, but I went with my favorite: vanilla.

They gave me a sample of Veganese conditioner, which is my favorite conditioner. My hair looks amazing after using it and I love the scent.

I also purchased ‘Catastrophe Cosmetic.’ It’s a beautifully scented face mask that left my skin feeling so soft and clean.

I couldn’t leave there without a few bath bombs and bars, so many awesome ones to choose from and their products are labeled clearly with a V if they’re vegan, and there are so many that are: 100% are vegetarian and 81%-83% are vegan.

They also have henna hair dyes, solid perfumes,  make up, dry shampoo (that works really well!), lip balm, and more.

I’m clearly a big fan of this place, their products,  and their practices. I definitely recommend checking them out!
