Lush Eau Roma Water Toner Water Review

The next time I write a blog post after this one will be sometime after my exams. Probably a bath product and probably next weekend – after a well deserved bath. I won’t be posting after this until then because, yeah, exams. So, I hope you guys enjoy this review and I’ll check in again next weekend!


Eau Roma Water (100g)

Rating: 5/5*

Cons:

This toner water didn’t last as long as I would have liked it to. I can tell you that I received this item on the 1st February this year, and probably first used it the day after I received it. I finished it up today – although, I did have to add a little water to make it last longer on 2 separate occasions, before deciding it was time to say goodbye! So this product lasted me a little under 3 months and well, it just didn’t seem like I had enough time with it! If you don’t want to be repurchasing a toner after under 3 months, don’t buy this product!

I found that quite a lot of product would be used every time I used this toner. I would spritz both sides of a cotton round until damp on both sides, and would also spritz my face until damp. I would then use the damp cotton round to wipe my entire face thoroughly. I found this to be the best way to use this toner. By doing this, I was able to remove a lot of makeup and dirt left behind after cleansing. So again, it does run out quite quickly if you want to use the toner in the most effective way!


Pros:

I really enjoyed this toner water. Gosh, where do I even begin?! It smells like lavender – extremely fresh, natural, floral and lovely! I absolutely love the scent of this toner!

This toner makes a great cleanser and makeup remover on lazy days. At times when I just couldn’t really be bothered to cleanse my face AND tone, I would just use this toner as a cleanser and makeup remover, in the exact same way that I would use it as just a simple toner. It worked AMAZINGLY! Like, really, really well. The cotton round I would use would be covered in makeup, and I would sometimes have to go in with a second or even a third cotton round, because of how much makeup the toner would pick up and how thorough it was! Definitely recommend!

As a toner in itself, this product works amazingly. Eau Roma Water will just take away any left behind cleanser, face mask or dirt residue on the skin – and is absolutely amazing at doing so! If you want a toner that does this job incredibly, this is the one for you!

After using this toner, my facial skin would always, without fail, feel extremely moisturised, soft, supple and smooth. I’m amazed at how well a simple water-based toner could work, but it’s effects truly were amazing!

My skin has looked clearer than it has done since I was a kid since using this toner. I’m not even exaggerating. Granted, my skin certainly wasn’t perfect in texture, but there was a vast improvement for sure. If you have troublesome skin, I’d really recommend you give this toner a go! It also absolutely did not aggravate my skin in any way whatsoever, which I found the tea tree toners from Lush did, so I’d also highly recommend this for sensitive skin types! My skin is combination, acne prone and sensitive, and this toner worked perfectly for my skin.

Using this toner after cleansing or after using a mask leaves your facial skin in a lovely condition. After cleansing or using a mask, I often find my face has residue left behind on it, and is a little tight, uncomfortable and dry. You will still need to moisturise after using this toner, don’t get me wrong, but it does make a great base before doing so. You would never think that you’d even need a toner until you try a good one, trust me! I absolutely do not even know how I’m going to cope without one now (as I am on a Lush ban currently…!) If you find your skin is a little uncomfortable straight after cleansing or using a face mask, you NEED this product!

I believe this toner really helped reduce the appearance of any redness my skin had too. Any blotchy, red appearance of any spots or acne scarring was greatly reduced after using this toner, and any general unsightly red, irritated, blotchy areas of my facial skin completely disappeared. If you want to reduce unsightly redness in your facial skin, give this toner a go!

This toner was super easy to use!

The name of this toner is super cute!

Eau Roma Water Toner Water is a product from Lush – a brilliant company! Any vegan product from Lush is worth a try in my book 🙂


Overall Conclusion:

Overall, I really, REALLY LOVED this toner water!!! Like, REALLY really! It absolutely surpassed my expectations.

One little tip – if you find that you have irritated, dry, oily, combination, sensitive, horrible, acne covered skin then well, don’t go for the products that are usually recommended for that type of skin. You know, the Tea Tree Toner Water, Herbalism Fresh Cleanser, Dark Angels Cleanser etc. I naturally have that horrid, annoying skin type and well, you know what I found? To my surprise, those products did nothing for my skin. Nothing incredible at least. What actually seems to be working, contrary to what I expected, is adding more moisture to my skin, and being more gentle with it. This toner water working so well is an amazing example of just that! My skin used to be so full of acne, that I thought the only way to kill it off would be to use Benzyl Peroxide, Acetone, strong acne cleansers and Salycylic Acid. All rubbing all this stuff on my face did was irritate my skin – it made my acne more bumpy and red, and caused the redness and bumps to spread around. It really messed with the texture of my skin – making it both really dried out and really oily at the same time. Be kind to your skin and it will calm down!

Anyways, so yeah, I really love this toner. It is so basic, and I really thought it would do practically nothing to my skin but boy, was I wrong.

Overall, I’m going to rate this toner water a 5/5* rating! It running out quickly and needing to use a lot of the product in one go was a pain, but the product itself was so amazing that I just couldn’t reduce its rating for such a small issue!

I hope you enjoyed this review. I have just one regular-line toner left to try – Breath of Fresh Air! I won’t be able to purchase it until after I have lifted my ban though, which could be in a really, really long time… (once I’ve used up all 22 of my Lush bath products…) Ah well!

I have officially now tried all of Lush’s currently available toners! As of 14/07/17, Eau Roma Water is my official favourite, and I’ll be sure to pick up a big bottle of the stuff once I have the money to do so, as that works out as being best value for money!

Lush Angels On Bare Skin Fresh Cleanser Review.

Hello! 🙂

Welcome again to another Lush review! I’m very sorry that I am still not uploading any images whatsoever to my Lush review posts. I know that many people are visual and enjoy looking at images. I must get into the habit of snapping a photo of my products before I begin using them really! I have a plan in mind to nip into a Lush store sometime soon, and to take photos of any products I have reviewed on my blog that are not exclusive. Once I do that I will add images to my review posts ASAP.

Until then! Here is my review of the incredibly popular, a cult classic, ‘Angels On Bare Skin Fresh Cleanser’. Let us begin!


Angels On Bare Skin Fresh Cleanser (100g)

Rating: 4/5

Cons:

The hype for this product… well… I just don’t really see how it is justified. I know this is one that so many of you guys adore, but I don’t understand why it is SO popular! If you buy this product based on its hype, chances are that you’ll be slightly disappointed too.

The little almond pieces in this cleanser just get stuck in my hair. They aren’t very scrubby at all, get in the way and just ugh… They’re really annoying! You have to use so much of this cleanser to get any scrubbing action whatsoever and I’m not entirely sure how or why, but when I start massaging the almond pieces into my skin, they somehow… dissolve?! I don’t know, the scrubby pieces in this cleanser really drive me insane.

The lavender pieces in this cleanser, although lovely, do just fall straight off your face and into the sink. This is sort of annoying. But they do smell really nice!

Okay, this could just be me being immature or just some sort of issue I have with bodily fluids, but this cleanser on my face reminds me a little bit of baby vomit. It is kind of a creamy translucent white liquid or “milk” with lots of opaque white bits scattered throughout. If you have issues with getting easily put off of things like I do, this might not be the cleanser for you!

The cleanser in the pot isn’t all that pretty. It is a murky off-white grey sort of colour, and looks a bit like clay. I’m not trying to put you guys off, I just write my reviews as honest and as neutrally as I can! This isn’t a great looking product.It looks very plain – well, as plain as a Lush product can look, which still is nowhere near as plain as your average cleanser…

The smell is a floral scent, like a very strong herby lavender, without any of the sweetness. If you are looking for a scrumptious smelling cleanser, this isn’t the one. In my opinion, it does smell nice, but does not smell sweet whatsoever, foody, fruity or citrussy which from my experience, are the most popular types of fragrances from Lush. The smell does grow on you though!

The scrubby bits do nothing whatsoever. If I want a good scrub of my face, I have to use exfoliating gloves prior to using this product.

You have to use a LOT of this product for it to really feel like it is working. It would take me ages before I’d work out the right amount I needed for a good cleanse, and this was a struggle for me right up until the very last bit of product. This is a more difficult one to determine how much you need to use.

This has literal lavender buds in it, so if you get hayfever I feel like this one could definitely irritate it.


Pros:

The scent, in my opinion, is really nice. It is very fresh and floral, and is definitely a scent I don’t mind my face smelling like! It is super lavendery, which reminds me of my mother because it’s one of her favourite scents. She’d always get me and my siblings to rub our fingers on lavender when we’d walk by some.

This cleanser does leave my face looking super peachy. What I mean by that, is that it looks very soft, plump and colourful after using this cleanser. I genuinely love how my face looks after using this!

Angels on Bare Skin is very natural, and you can really feel and see that while using it. Using a natural cleanser definitely feels so much nicer than using something like Clean & Clear on your face – trust me! I used to always feel like my face wasn’t clean enough, I’d scrub it so hard just trying to make it as clean as I thought it was supposed to be, until my face would be all red! I’m much more relaxed about how deeply cleaned my face is, because I know that Lush cleansers make my face clean enough and always leave my face feeling better than it’s ever felt with chemical-packed cleansers. This cleanser is extremely unlikely to cause your face or body any harm!

I understand why this cleanser is called ‘Angels on Bare Skin’. It is a very light cleanser – both in colour and in how rough it is on your skin. I think this is one that would be absolutely fantastic on sensitive skin for sure. My skin is combination and sensitive, and I found it to possibly be a little bit too sensitive for my liking. It really isn’t scrubby at all, unless you purposely really try to scrub your skin with it.

Again, to me this cleanser is quite nostalgic to me because it reminds me of my mother – she even uses this cleanser! That alone is enough to make me quite like it.

This cleanser works. It cleans your face very well, gets rid of oil, and leaves your face looking, feeling and smelling fresh.

This cleanser is made by Lush, is cruelty free, all natural, handmade, vegan… It is definitely worth a try, and I’d certainly recommend at least trying a sample of this cleanser.

AOBS actually lasted me a lot longer than I expected it to. Although I had to use a lot of the product to really feel like it was working, the overall pot of product still lasted me a good while. I couldn’t say how long exactly, but it felt like how long someone would want a product to last.

The name of the cleanser is absolutely adorable!


Overall Conclusion:

Overall, this is a really lovely cleanser. I think it isn’t scrubby enough for me, and so the almond pieces seem almost pointless to me. The smell is lovely though, as well as the overall concept of the cleanser. I also really like how my skin looks after using it. It just sort of.. I don’t know, it feels like it is missing some oomph.

Overall, I rate this cleanser a 4/5* rating. It isn’t the one for me so to say, but if I ever feel like I just need a really, really light cleanser – that works and also makes my face look lovely, then I’ll definitely be using this one again.

Lush Tea Tree Water Toner Water Review.

Hey guys, thank you for joining me today! 😀

I hope you have all enjoyed the weekend, and I hope you enjoy today’s review! 🙂


Tea Tree Water Toner Water (100g)

Rating: 4/5*

Cons:

This tea tree toning water honestly doesn’t do very much for the skin, at least from what I found. It is a very, very diluted toner, and is extremely mild.

The smell of this toner might be off-putting for some people. It is a very strong scent, and in my opinion is more of a masculine scent than a feminine one. The scent reminds me of a weaker version of the general scent of a mens aftershave.

This toner was very, very slightly irritating on my skin as soon as it was applied. It left some areas of my face with redness, although this went very quickly.

I didn’t notice this toner doing anything much for oily skin or spots. It is very mild, so don’t expect any big results when using it!


Pros:

This being a mild toner makes it feel quite pleasant when applied to facial skin. Toners I have used in the past have sometimes actually caused spots on my face to bleed! This is definitely a toner for sensitive skin. The toner on a cotton round feels velvetty smooth to apply, and leaves the face feeling very soft and smooth.

I actually found this toner to be strangely moisturising. My face felt very plump and definitely felt much more hydrated after using this toner.

Using this toner after cleansing my face made my face feel 100% clean and extra fresh, and helped to wipe off any areas I may have missed while rinsing my cleanser off.

I personally love the smell of this toner. It smells very fresh, clean, refreshing, natural and wonderful!

This is a Lush toner, is vegan, cruelty free, ethical, handmade etc. This is reason enough to give it a go in my opinion!


Overall Conclusion:

Overall, I do like this toner. I do think the active ingredients in this toner are possibly a little bit too diluted with water, however, the formula still worked well with my skin.

I love the smell of it, I love the way it feels on my skin and overall, I do really enjoy its effects, however mild those effects may be. It is also from Lush, definitely a pro in my book.

I think this toner is ideal for skin that is not super oily or super dry or sensitive. I think this toner would be most ideal for normal, possibly slightly dry, slightly sensitive skin.

My skin is definitely combination and sensitive.

Overall, I rate this toner a 4/5*. I do quite like this toner, but how extremely diluted and mild it is definitely knocks off that fifth star. I think that it is expensive for what it is, but it does do something positive for my skin, no matter how small that something is.

I think if my skin was a bit less sensitive, this toner would work even better.

Honestly, I’d recommend the Tea Tree Toner Tab over this toner. All I do is put half the tab into a 60ml travel size spritzer bottle that I got from a travel kit in HEMA, fill the bottle up with water, shake it up and voila. The toner should keep until you use it all up if you use it a couple of times a day. This way, 1 tab makes 120g of product for £1 vesus 100g of product for £4.50.

I have also reviewed the toner tab, and overall gave it the same rating. It is harsher on the skin than this toner is, but definitely has other benefits that this toner does not. Definitely worth a try for £1!


Thank you for reading my review today guys!
