Holidays are full of good eats, both salty and sweet. Often, the warmest memories are constructed from the simple scents of repast: like the popcorn strung on a homemade garland or the steaming smell of baked goods from an oven. Today I'm sharing two such simple delights from the LUSH Holiday 2012 collection: LUSH Popcorn Lip Scrub and LUSH Let The Good Times Roll facial cleanser.
LUSH Popcorn Ingredients: Castor Sugar, Organic Jojoba Oil (Simmondsia chinensis), Fine Sea Salt (Sodium chloride), Corn Meal (Zea Mays), Extra Virgin Coconut Oil (Cocos nucifera), Fizzy Candy (Isomalt, Lycasin, Carbon Dioxide), Flavour.
LUSH Let the Good Times Roll facial cleanser looks, feels, and smells like dough. I've seen all sorts of descriptions regarding the scent, but generally people agree that it smells like baked goods. To me, it smells like a cinnamon-raisin loaf! To use the cleanser, take a pinch of the 'dough' and work it in between damp hands before applying it to the face. The milky cleanser doesn't really froth or bubble like a typical soapy cleanser. Small exfoliating granules of maize feel scrubby, but are gentle enough to use twice a day. After use, I'm left with glowing skin as a result of the exfoliation and moisturizing glycerine residue. Initially, I was skeptical as to whether LUSH Let the Good Times Roll would work well with my combination skin. I'm pleased to report that the gentle cleansing and exfoliation may work better for my winter skin than a deep cleanser.
LUSH Let The Good Times Roll Ingredients: Maize flour (Zea mays), Glycerine, Talc, Water (Aqua), Corn Oil (Zea Mays), Corn Meal (Zea Mays), Popcorn, Gardenia Extract (Gardenia jasminoides), Cinnamon Powder (Cinnamomum zeylanicum), Fragrance.
