how to save your skin, and review: LUSH

Ever heard about Lush? Well, it's kinda similar to other cosmetic brand like The Body Shop, MAC or Sephora except that I recognized Lush more to a less-makeup-product retailer lel. I literally wasn't introduced to Lush; until I browse over YouTube and found Lohanthony new vid (yes, I subscribed to his channel lol) and found it really intriguing and legit.

I do have a skin problem, dulu & sekarang lol. Biasalah when u hit puberty, one thing you want to witness is watching pimples grow on your face, aside from seeing that as a puberty clarification (oh). Idk if aku seorang je yang sepelik ni, but once upon a time I did want my face to be scattered with pimples (what a total freak) as a ticket to grown-up world (lmfao). Damn, it's like so bangga if one pimple grew under your nose lepastu tayang dekat classmate konon matured lol, hella weird. Yeah, and during that zaman, takdelah teruk sangat the acne lol, how do I say this. Like the basic pimples (?)  je yang reside all over my face and usually at one particular place (macam hidung, under lip, between kening etc etc) and they didn't leave apparent scar despite tangan suka picit bagi puas hati.

But, things just get worse when im at the peak of my teenager years. At 17, I realized betapa hodohnya even one dot of acne, and how one pustule kat hidung can disrupt everything. Going thru flashback and I found that these acne troubles start to spread like a wildfire as far as it could (fuhhh) when I got admitted to a boarding school on 2012. I convinced myself yang air kat sana was the main culprit; ya how can't it be, I (usually) did my shower dekat toilet (I swore it dis-gross-ting af, but demi nak pergi assembly/surau awal kutabahkan hati). and yet few months after, naik rash at my back even chest and surely on face lah. selain air yang I cant be sure if it was suci bersih or tak, you know it was my first time living in hostel, so results to stress level yang over, tambah pula my grade was kureng that time, and malas bersukan peu peu, malahan malas minum air masak sebab suka beli air gedegang sigh sigh.

sometimes, aku tak kisah pun kalau keluar rumah with pimples obvious kat muka sebab dah malas nak kisah haha lantak hazab je lah sebab masa tu confidence level konon tinggi. but some other times, agak kisah kalau nak jumpa someone mesti kena tampak flawless tapi apa nak buat, non-hado concealer nak cover flaws, so back to the previous, tak kisahlah apa orang nak cakap like you know your potential and it wasnt only lie at your face. i knew that appearance contributes a lot toward people's first impression but having pimples doesnt make you any less human. be happy and free.

it do takes time to recover, and to make it vanish, or maybe some scars can't be heal but nothing is impossible with effort. so, how do you save your skin? (drum-roll)

back to Lush, and after watched lohanthony's vid, I tried to google Lush Malaysia, end up only keluar link that redirect to lushsg (Lush Singapore) which, the sad new is there's no lush store available at Malaysia. yet the closest one is kat Singapore but since our currency jatuh teruk, so it's quite pricy to bargain thru lushsg. but I somehow managed to buy Mask of Magnaminty at a cheaper price thru igshoppers (term coined for those who sells item thru instagram).

Mask of Magnaminty isn’t technically a daily ‘facial wash’; it’s actually a deep cleansing face and back mask. China clay and fresh peppermint reach deep down to pull the debris from your pores, giving you that delightful tingly-clean sensation. We add loads of aduki beans to exfoliate flaky or dry skin, vanilla absolute to calm redness and honey to soothe. Our inventors created Mask of Magnaminty to be the ‘ultimate face mask’, intense but not harsh or abrasive on the skin. We recommend using Mask of Magnaminty weekly to keep the skin in good condition.
is2g, it smell so goooood that I practically wanna eat it. i used this mask twice a week or actually suka hati kau nak guna berapa kali but since benda tu sikit je so pepandailah jimat. anyway, its also a body mask so you can try spreading it on that part of your skin. happy to say that acne on my chest and bacne are reduced with the help of this yummy mask.

this mask contained natural ingredients and safe synthetic. the reason I fall in love with Lush is because they used fresh, natural ingredients instead of chemical products. there's an expiry date for each product anyway, in case if you didn't aware. and they didn't test their finished products on animal (if u noticed some tweets regarding animal testing before, that went viral on twitter with a picture of a poor damaged rabbit)

i also purchased Tea Tree Water, a facial toner. I like how they made it into a spray pump sebab senang je spray muka haa pastu lap pakai tisu. this toner is naturally anti-bacterial and a great blemish fighter that work well at dealing with breakouts.
Oily, dull or tired skin brightens up with a routine spritz of Tea Tree Water. Cleansing tea tree, juniper berry and grapefruit waters keep skin looking fresh and balance skin tone. Light and refreshing Tea Tree Water reduces redness and clears excess oil without drying so you can put your best face forward.
you can simply browse over lush japan / any lush site to see their whole variety of products all over the range, and I can assure its gonna worth your visit. read by yourself the reviews and dont forget to go to the kitchen section, experience yourself how they made it as they provide some videos.

...... and just dont stop here yet, i have a good news.

if you don't have any idea how to purchase it since tak pernah beli online across malaysia, do not cancel your shopping spree plan yet. via instagram, go to @poppinsteff to enjoy your Lush moments. we sell alot of lush products at cheaper price. im so happy to share the miracle of lush with you guys. why not invest your cash on something good. a happy smile came from a healthy skin hahah whatever.
if anthony can save his skin, why dont you?
i know some products might be too pricy for you (dah kata not available in Malaysia, of course lah agak mahal ya), but mahal mahal pun i tell you its gonna worth your penny. usually, each product came in two different weights. for example, Mask of Magnaminty is available in 125g and 315g. eventhough you might deem 125g tu as alahai je (its srsly more than alahai actually), but it has all 15 ingredients in it or more, depends on each products. hmmmn imagine all fresh, natural ingredients were mingled into one cool-packaging-jar, yasss yummy yummy happy tummy. oh, i love their cool packaging too anyway. it might be nice to start a collection of paperbag hahah

Lush merchandises are organic and the company itself is a vegan. so, I think its normal for organic products to be more expensive, macam organic food also more mahal than conventional food sebab no chemical aka more labor (here's a i-say-it-funny but hopefully relevant example; the farmer berpenat lelah menjaga sayurannya dari perosak lol using his own energy instead of spraying pesticide which surely lagi mudah, but he's a good farmer anyhow. and you could be good too with your choice.)

Read here 'Why Organic Products Can Be More Expensive—But Are Worth It'

all lush products displayed on our instagram account is ordered directly from Lush Japan. and why Japan? well surely lah sebab if convert from Yen to Ringgit lagi murah than usa/sg dollar or uk pound. plus the postage rate pun much lower than the others.

//i know it wasnt a good review as u might anticipate haha since I, myself pun baru consume the mask 3 weeks, but i swear it really did good to my face, I'll update this post later and show you the comparison hahah nevertheless enjoy my fable.
