Back in June I blogged about my new favourite toner from Lush and this month, since I've been trailing it for a couple of months now, I thought I'd talk to you about my other most recent Lush purchase. So here I am, bringing you another blogger favourite, Lush's 9 to 5 cleansing lotion! Sorry not sorry if you're bored of hearing about this product.
As far as cleansers go, I've basically been using a mix of Garnier products for the past.. well, forever! So on my last trip to Lush I decided to give in to the ever so popular 9 to 5 cleansing lotion. I'd never used a lotion cleanser before so I was pretty eager to give it a go and compare it to my staples. Plus, for a huge 240g bottle, it's pretty cheap in comparison to some high end brands. I'm still using my micellar water to remove the bulk of my make up, but then I've been going in with this bad boy and giving my skin that extra cleanse that it
The main ingredients in the 9 to 5 cleansing lotion are Almond Oil, Fresh Dove Orchid extract and Ylang Ylang oil, which if you know anything about me by now it's that I adore the scent of ylang ylang(plus it's an amazing oil for balancing both dry and oily skin, bargain)! It claims to brighten, soothe and moisturise your skin. I'm not sure if my skin is looking brighter because of this product, or because of the tiny human growing inside of me but either way, after using the 9 to 5 cleansing lotion, my skin does feel super duper smooth and refreshed.
Because I generally take my make up off before using this cleansing lotion, I often just smear it all over my face with the tips of my fingers before removing it gently using wet cotton pads, which I then dry off and follow with a sprtiz of my Tea Tree Toner Water. Of course, this product is 100% Vegan and I highly recommend it if you're looking for something to add to your skin care routine that will leave your skin feeling super duper fresh, morning or night!
Have you tried out Lush's 9 to 5 cleansing lotion before? What did you think? Or are you not as big a fan as I am? Let me know!
