Flying Fox shower gel and Godiva solid shampoo & conditioner bar (identical scents) smell like honey, jasmine, ylang, cypress and sex appeal! Their aromatherapy qualities are meant to calm even the most frazzled person AND they’re known to be very sensual fragrances - not to mention the ingredients in Flying Fox are super skin softening. Godiva also has chunks of shea & cocoa butters to moisturize dehydrated hair and make it smell like heaven!
If you have tried either one of these and love them, you need both products to get yourself that head-to-toe fragrance you can lightly smell all day long (and so can everyone else). Plus if you’re a lady who gets PMS like most of us, the scent in these two products is known to ease your symptoms! How great is that?
Today’s perfect pair consists of Fresh Farmacy facial cleanser and Imperialis facial moisturizer from LUSH. I am beginning to replace my 3-Step Proactiv System with this combo. I would recommend these products for people with any skin type.
Fresh Farmacy facial cleanser is a pink bar soap from LUSH packed with chamomile, calamine, rose, lavender oil, tea tree oil (which is antibacterial and antiseptic) and is meant for troublesome skin. It lathers well and has a nice light earthy scent. But don’t worry, it doesn’t stay on your face, the scent is virtually gone once you rinse it off. It goes on smooth and washes off leaving your face feeling buttery smooth. I find this soap to be a tad bit drying, but not by much, which is why i follow it up with Imperialis moisturizer. For my skin, these two are perfect!
Imperialis is a pink facial moisturizer meant for t-zone or combination skin. However, for the simple fact that it makes oily spots matte, and dry spots moisturized, in my opinion it could work well with any skin type. As i said before, Fresh Farmacy leaves me a little dry sometimes, so Imperialis balances out all my dry & oily spots at the same time. My face feels a little greasy at first, but once the moisturizer melts ion my skin my face feels soft and clean (be sure not to use too much - a pea sized amount is plenty for your whole face). I also found that this is safe enough for me to use on my eye area. I occasionally get dry patches between my eyelids and eyebrows from makeup application & removal. I put a little bit of Imperialis on my eyelids and brow bones and the dry patches are immediately soothed and moisturized.
I only use these 2 products in combination with each other once per day (usually in the morning) and then use my Proactiv at night before bed when i tend to be the oiliest, so my skin is getting that extra acne-fighting that it needs. However, i plan to TRY to get rid of the Proactiv and switch to a total LUSH facial regimen.
Today’s “perfect pair” features Marzibain bubble bar and Snowcake soap, for a creamy, luscious, almond-icing scented body.
Marzibain bubble bar is so cute! Its a fluffy white bar topped with a real almond, and it smells identicle to Snowcake soap (and Smitten hand cream!). The bubbles from this bar are thick, creamy, and fluffy. If you’re a lover of vanilla scents, this is a great alternative. I cannot get enough of the smell. Although, im not sure sure it did anything for my skin. With some other bombs my skin immediately feels silky in the bath water, and i didnt find this to be the case. And, I have to admit that i didnt really smell Marzibain once i used it in the water. However, using Snowcake to lather up solves that problem.
Snowcake soap is by far one of the creamiest, most moisturizing soaps I have ever used from LUSH, and the fact that it’s the exact same scent as Marzipan makes them a perfect pair! Snowcake is really soft and creamy and it lathers well, its almost like smoothing frothy lotion onto your skin in the shower/bath. If you’re looking for even more similar scented products, try Lil Lush Pud bath bomb, and Smitten hand cream.
This is my first "Perfect Pair" post. Every so often i’ll be showing you two LUSH products that go great together! Ill give a quick run-down of what they’re like, and why they go good together. I wont be explaining this everytime i post one. Just this time :) These are my opinions and are not associated with LUSH.
First up is Sultana of Soap & Strawberry Feels Forever massage bar. If you were a fan of Yummy Yummy Yummy shower gel, you’ll love this combo. Both scents are sexy and sweet at the same time. Sultana of Soap is creamy, luxurious and fragrant. It makes me skin super soft and the scent lingers for quite some time. It melts a little quicker than most LUSH soaps, because of the creaminess, but dont let that discourage you from buying it. Strawberry Feels Forever is an interesting product. I didnt like it at all when i bought it online and it arrived in the mail. It seemed harder to melt than my other LUSH massage bars, and the scent was strange at the time. Until i bought Sultana of Soap i had no product that went well w. this massage bar. However, now I dont have those same issues w/ the massage bar… it easily warms up and applies to skin and i find the scent pleasant now.
These two go great together. Strawberry Feels has nearly the same scent as Sultana but it has an added fruitiness thanks to all the fresh strawberries. When i use these two products together, i can smell the sweet, sultry scent on my skin the entire day! Its not overwhelming or too strong at all, its very light and fragrant. Until i got Sultana of Soap and decided these two would go great together, i thought i would NEVER like my Strawberry Feels massage bar…. but now i love it! Pairing these two together is pleasantly surprising!
