Spring cleaning ...my beauty routine?!

Spring is officially here! With the arrival of spring comes the arrival of SPRING CLEANING. When I think of spring cleaning I think of a deep cleaning of my apartment, maybe the decluttering of a few corners, and even donating some less worn clothing items. While those are all a part of this year's spring cleaning ritual (er, will be eventually...), I've added something else onto the agenda - my facial cleansing stash.

I realized that I have cabinets full of products that I hardly even use! Additionally, I just get overwhelmed with the amount of products that I have and hate the idea of all the different things that I am putting on my face. I wanted something a bit more natural as we eased into spring, so I took a trip to none other than Lush.



If you're not aware, Lush makes all natural beauty product that use local materials and ethical business practices. They seriously are made with natural ingredients - the products have an expiration date and I can actually read the names of the things I am putting on my face and body. I am EXTREMELY satisfied with the things I purchased so I figured I would share my new and improved, simplified facial routine.

The first thing I picked up is a Tea Tree toner. It gives my face a fresh feeling after cleansing and also is perfect for pick me ups during the day. Next, I got 9 to 5, a cleansing lotion (how cool, right?) that you apply to your face to clean off makeup and dirt while also moisturizing. The last facial item I got is called Dark Angels. It is a clay cleanser, meaning it comes in sort of a clump and you break off pieces to mix with water and apply to your face. I can't say enough good things about this product. It cleaned out and shrunk my pores to a state that I have never even seen them.

Additionally, I got a bubblegum lip scrub (classic Lush product) and a Dream Pot. Dream Pot is Lush's lotion with a light, floral scent where all 100% of proceeds go to charity. 100%! Lush makes no money off of this product, but rather uses the funds to contribute to a small, local charity. The funds from my Dream Pot went to FLOW, an organization that protects an important watershed in Columbus.

I highly recommend cleansing your beauty routine for spring! Simplifying my routine with high quality, natural products has made me excited to take care of myself. I gave away all of my other products to friends so I have more space around my apartment. I love looking into my little bucket of Lush goodies (along with a few other holy grail beauty/hair items). I'm entering with spring with a fresh new face and a fresh new me. I can't wait to see what other parts of my life I can spring clean!

    1. Thank you! You're so sweet. <3 The tea tree water is a holy grail for me! I find it tones my face by evening my complexion and most of all decreases oil and closes pores without being drying! Love it
