Hello! Bonjour from Montreal! It's been a fabulous summer filled with pool days and shopping in this great city. I love being here among the great shopping centers and outlets! My first stop was at Lush at Carrefour Laval. The service was amazing! Here's what I got.
Ginger and Fennel Sugar scrub
This product has been my favourite for cellulite ever since I tried it last year. It's green and in a semi-circular shape. I love how easy it is and how fresh and invigorating it feels. You don't use it under running water but rather wet it a bit and take a small amount and rub it all over your skin. Massage well and then rinse off. It isn't harsh on the skin but smooth and pleasant. It has an 'ocean' smell. I use it almost every day before using soap. $6.25 (100 gr)
Ocean Salt Face and Body Scrub
I got this because the sales person said I can also use it on my face unlike the sugar scrub above. I really do like it as well. It really is amazing on the face and body. You use it like any scrub on wet skin and massaging in a circular motion before rinsing off. The sea salt leaves the skin feeling so soft and clean. The texture is creamy. I love it especially for oily skin. It is better than the sugar scrub but also a lot more expensive. $22-$36 depending on the size. The one displayed in the picture was from a gift box in a special size.
Stepping Stone Foot Scrub
This is the scrub shaped like a foot - obviously! I got this as summer requires a lot of foot care when wearing sandals. I love giving myself a pedicure and massaging feet with a good scrub is a must. This scrub did not live up to its expectations. I must admit I like really tough scrubs so feet are extra soft. This scrub is not as 'abrasive'. I have to use a big amount as it melts away too quickly. My feet are soft afterwards but it doesn't work so well on heels where it's needed the most. $4.50
This soap should be called Lemon soap! It really has a strong lemon scent! Overpowering! However, the soap really does wonders for oily skin. The lemon juice is a natural astringent making your skin really clean. It foams up well and the smell doesn't last long on the skin-thankfully! $7.50 (100 gr)
African Paradise Body Conditioner
Have you ever heard of a body conditioner? Neither had I until seeing it on display in the store. The truth is I wanted a body lotion and the sales person gave me this saying I could use it as a lotion too. I have used it on rough patches on the skin and it works well. In the shower though, I didn't like it. You basically apply it like a cream after soaping and then rinse off. I didn't like how my skin felt afterwards. On my arms I felt like I had to rinse it off a lot as it felt 'heavy'.I do recommend it after shaving legs and especially for those of you who are doing laser hair removal (like me) as your legs need constant moisturizing. $39.95 (250 gr)
Vanilla Dee-lite Body Lotion
This is the sample I got in the little pot. I got 2 of them! I really loved it! It has to be among the best body lotions I've ever used! It's light, absorbs quickly without a 'greasy' feel. The scent is a discreet, fresh vanilla scent which anyone can use ( including people who don't like vanilla). I do recommend it to anyone looking for a body lotion! I LOVE it! Yes I will be buying it soon despite the price! $27.95 (250 ml)
