Lush Ultrabland Cleanser and Lemony Flutter Cuticle Butter

Lush Ultrabland Cleanser

As the weather has definately got more autumnal since September has arrived, I decided to do a pre-emptive strike on the dry skin I usually get (particularly around my nose) in the colder weather. So I've been using Lush's Ultrabland Cleanser. It's a creamy cleanser you massage into your face and then remove with wet cotton wool; I like this as I personally quite like to see the grime and make up being removed effectively.

It definately feels very hydrating and I wouldn't recommend it for use in the morning because it feels like it needs a while to be absorbed by my skin (without feeling greasy like with a facial oil). I would definately recommend it as a make up remover for the end of the day, especially for those with dry, or drier, skin. It doesn't really smell of much so it's relatively inoffensive (except my brain randomly decided it smelled a bit like old noodles but in my defence I was coming down with a cold at the time). Don't do the same thing as I did and remove it with dry cotton wool pads, it made me break out because I obviously wasn't removing the product!

Overall, I do like this but not enough to buy it again...I think I prefer a proper wash off cleanser and a moisturiser rather than what this is.

I also got this - I suffer from dry cuticles and had been meaning to pick it up for a while. It does feel really nourishing on the nail and I've actually got into the habit of applying it several times a day - which I often don't do with cuticle oils because they're a bit messy and greasy - so I'm pleased about that, a little bit goes a long way. And, it smells great, just the right balance of citrusiness mixed with sweetness without being overpowering.

Now this, I would happily buy again...and I plan to!
