Lush Tea Tree Water & Grease Lightning

Hello! Welcome back, after a much needed break I am back with something that has been very highly requested! After now using this for a good amount of time I am ready to commit to a review!
Lush Tea Tree water  100g £3.95  Lush Grease Lightning 45g £5.95
I picked these both up mainly for my husband, he has dry/greasy (I know!) skin and he is prone to spots, mostly when he is super stressed. He also has very sensitive skin, so anything I buy has to be very gentle and kind to the skin.
I tired the the Tea Tree water on myself first and I was surprised how cooling and refreshing it felt, no tightness or stinging, just a clean super fresh feeling. my skin looked clean and fresh too, which is always good after all the make up has come off.
My husband didn't really comment on the feel of it, although it didn't sting and only has a very light scent, which he really liked. What he noticed more importantly was how much better his skin looked and felt after a week of using this twice a day.
Brighter, clearer, less greasy and dry, less visible pores, more balanced skin, the list could go on...
This was a total winner for him, and he has continued to use this, with his skin just looking better and better.

I didn't use Grease Lightning before using it on him as I don't really get spots, and I was a little unsure of how to apply it. Its a gel-like texture, yet very runny. I found the best way to use it was on a tissue then straight on the spot, this made the gel get into the skin really well without being rubbed around elsewhere.
The results with Grease lightning where not overnight but this really did make a difference, his spots where less inflamed and angry looking, after a few days they where gone without red marks which he normally has for some time after spots. It also worked well on the discolouration left by previous spots, so I would highly recommend this if you do have some discolouration. He has been putting this on areas he feels he gets spots most often and his skin has been very clear, which we are both very happy about!

Overall I would highly recommend these products, they work so well, in such a short amount of time, and they are so reasonably priced.
Have you tired either one of these Lush products? Do you like them?

MAC Magnetic nude and NARS Final cut (with swatches!)

When I heard about MAC Magnetic nudes I knew I would be getting something from the collection, and when I first saw the swatches I thought I would be getting all of the extra dimension skinfinishes, and actually missing out on the blushes.
The Nars final cut collection really caught my eye, I love pink blushes and I really wanted to try out the lip pencils, the illuminator interested me but I wasn't too sure.

Benefit Stay don't Stray review

Hello Lovelies,
My interview went very well, so fingers crossed, the position certainly seems like something I would thoroughly enjoy doing and excel at!
Today I have something that is fairy old but something I have been wanting to try for a while and that I don't see many others using on a regular basis.
