Pure Chimp Super Cream review

Pure Chimp Super Cream

I have quite sensitive skin and often find that I am allergic to beauty products or the things I come into contact with in my ever day life. Often it is man-made chemicals that can trigger it off so where possible I love to try out 100% natural products to prevent irritation. When I found out about Pure Chimp I was really keen to give their products a go.

I opted for the Super Cream as from the description on the website, it seemed like it was a miracle cure for every skin related ailment. Like most beauty bloggers I love a product that can multi-task so it seemed like a great choice.

As I mentioned before, the cream in 100% natural, it is not tested on animals, suitable for vegans and it is handmade in the UK – surely these must tick some of your boxes! The cream is made from hemp wax, hemp oil, sunflower oil, safflower oil, shea butter, banana extract and sea buckthorn oil. This luxurious blend of ingredients is rich in Omega 3 and 6 which it vital for skin repair and nourishment.

I have been using this product for a few months now when I feel like my skin is becoming dry. It is particularly soothing after suffering a cold when your nose can become quite dry and sore. Not only has this product left my face feeling soft and hydrated, but it has become a go to product for when allergies flare up. A little dab of cream soothes itching and repairs dry and damaged areas of skin. I have used the cream on my knees and elbows to prevent them from getting dry and it works wonders. This truly it a multi-functional product.

The Super Cream itself has quite a runny consistency thanks to the healthy oils it contains. As the oils are good oils, it means that they do not clog your pores, which is great for people who are prone to suffering from blocked pores. It is also a little bit grainy – but not in a scratchy way – which is a little unusual at first but it sinks into the skin beautifully. I love the Pure Chimp Super Cream and I am almost nearing the end of my tub. I will definitely be repurchasing the cream as it is amazing for sensitive skin.

If you want to give this amazing product a try, Pure Chimp are offering samples from the website for just £1, the perfect way to try the product before you buy a full-sized tub. You can purchase the Pure Chimp Super Cream from their website for £14.95 for a 60ml jar.

LUSH Mint Julips Lib Scrub review

Mint Julips Lip Scrub from Lush

One of my pet peeves is having dry lips. Unfortunately for me, this is something that I regularly struggle with. Sometimes it is caused by the weather and other times by super matte lipsticks (MAC RiRi Woo, I’m looking at you…). So to solve my dry lip woes I decided to head down to my local LUSH store and pick up the beauty blogger favourite, the Mint Julips lip scrub. While the concept of a lip scrub does sound a little bit daft – my mum laughed when I told her about it!! – this is actually pure genius.

The scrub is made with the natural ingredients, caster sugar, organic jojoba oil, vanilla extract, tagetes oil, peppermint oil and limonene. This gorgeous concoction smells (and tastes!) amazing. It is exactly like mint choc chip ice-cream. The sugar gently buffs away dead skin cells from your lips leaving them soft looking and feeling and visibly plumped. The oils can then penetrate the new layer of skin to re-hydrate the lips.

Mint Julips Lip Scrub from Lush

Now, I mentioned earlier that Mint Julips not only smells like heave, but also tastes like it too! That’s right… you can eat it! Seeing as the main ingredient is caster sugar, and the rest is all natural, it is perfectly safe to eat the product. This means application is incredibly simple. You simply dab your finger into the pot picking up a small amount of product. I prefer to lick my lips first – I don’t really know if it matters, but my reasoning is you wouldn’t put a face scrub on a dry face – then gently scrub my lips with a small circular motion. As soon as you feel that you’ve scrubbed enough, simply lick it off! So tasty and so convenient!

If minty chocolatey goodness is not your cup of tea, never fear, Lush also stock this scrub in Popcorn and Bubblegum flavors. Popcorn is not my favourite scent, but the Bubblegum smells wonderful. Overall, I really recommend the LUSH lip scrubs for anyone who suffers from dry lips. There is a lot of product packed in the pot so they last for ages, but I know when mine runs out I will certainly by repurchasing. You can get your hands on your own from LUSH Cosmetics stores or their website for £5.50 for a 25g tub.

Have you tried any of the LUSH lip scrubs? How do you cope with dry lips? Which flavour do you prefer?
