LUSH Volcano Foot Mask

I knew there was face mask but never knew that foot mask..I know some of you will be gasping that where on earth are you living and you don't know the existence of the foot mask?I seriously did not know at all but once I got to know about it,you could say I was in luck.I did not get it by my own but my sister asked me what I wanted to for my birthday and I told that I want LUSH Volcano Foot Mask.She said fine and in the end she got me the Foot Mask and a Body Lotion.Continue reading to see if I like it or not.

What Lush says about the Foot Mask :

- Fresh Papayas and lemon juices meant for cleansing

- Tomatoes,potatoes and anti-fungal essential oils remove odor and foot gremlins

- Spice up your life : Stimulating cinnamon leaf oil leaves your feet tingling

- Ten Toes Up       :  A totally refreshing and transformative experience

- Rough stuff          : Pumice is great exfoliant to remove the dead skin on our feet 

How to use it :

Slather on our thick kaolin and pumice Volcano Foot Mask to draw out the impurities and dirt from our feet and remove rough skin.After ten minutes,scrub off the foot mask for a baby like soft skin feet.

My Feet Experience :

I am someone who used to wear a lot of strap slippers and sometimes I do wear flats too..Because of this,my feet skin had this dark mark of the strap left on my right feet.Ontop of that,I have cracked heels on both my feet and no matter what products I tried did not seem to help to improve my cracked heels.

This is how my feet looked like before applying the mask

How I used it will be I take certain amount of mask onto my hands and apply to my feet.

After which I tie using a plastic bag to my leg and rest for around 20 minutes though it did say 10 minutes.While waiting for the time to be up,I could feel that burning sensation plus the feet been cleaned up from dirt.

After which I go to the bathroom,remove the plastic bag and start to rub the mask off with water running under the tap.While rubbing the foot mask,I could see dirt coming out from my feet and my feet becoming a lot brighter than before.After that,apply foot lotion or like how I did was to use Johnson & Johnson Baby Lotion to moisturise my feet.

See this photo to believe it.I can guarantee you that there is no gimmick or anything to it.

Where to buy from :

  1. Lush Sg website which includes delivery charges
  2. You could head down to the Lush Stores which is at Orchard or Suntec City
Price : SGD 21 for 125g


  • Made up of mostly natural ingredients(my number one favourite)
  • Cleared off most of my feet mark within the first use
  • Soften the skin
  • Finished my tube and brightened up my feet a lot

  • Have to finish it within a month

Final Verdict :

I will definitely repurchase it.As I am drafting this blog,I just finished it around 2hrs back.I am waiting for my next outing on Saturday to get that plus a foot lotion again.

Another thing is that LUSH has written on the tub is use 5 tubs or tubes and exchange it for a fresh face mask for free.I am done with this one and I will be getting the next one plus I have a body lotion tub to finish..

The Body Shop Color Crush Lipstick (Color 310 : Crush On Caramel Matte)

I am back after a long long break from blogging..I had something to take care of and working at the same time just didn't leave me time to write reviews..Without further introduction,I am going to share my opinion on TBS Color Crush Lipstick (Crush On Caramel Matte).

The Body Shop launched the Color Crush lipstick recently with 24 different colors.It has different finishing like matte,sparkly,pearlescent  and been a lipstick lover,I told myself that I definitely need to get atleast one color to see how it goes.So I went to TBS and tried few colors before deciding on Color 310.Reason for taking this nude color was because I already had two reds and one pink color.

Description from TBS website :

- High impact color
- Rich moisture
- Has subtle rose scent

Price : SGD 22.90 for 3.50g

Pros :

- Love the way the color appears on my lips(nude)

- Shimmery nude 

- Ease of application plus you have to  scrub lips and moisture it with lip balm before applying)

- Finishing for this is matte which is not a good idea for extreme dry lips(I have dry lips but not extreme and it worked perfectly)

Cons :

- Staying power could have been longer which lasted around 3 to 4 hours on my lips

- Price is on the expensive side

Final Verdict :

I would want to try a pearlescent and sparkly finish from this.I would keep this as extra till my NYX and MAC finishes.

Forest Essentials Hair Cleanser & Conditioner (Mysore Sandal & Vetivier)

I am back with the post for Forest Essentials Hair Cleanser & Conditioner Mysore Sandal Vetivier.

Since Forest Essentials derive from natural ingredients and I am a sucker for products with natural ingredients,I ordered this with few others immediately without giving it a second thought.Stay tune to find out if I have a love or hate relationship with this.

Hair Cleanser with Sandalwood and Vetivier

Product Description :

These gently cleansing shampoos with Amla Juice,Reetha,Soya Protein,Coconut oil and herbal infusions
give natural shine,swing and fragrance.Our shampoos based on Ayurvedic formula are free from harsh chemicals.

Price : INR 680 (SGD 13.60) Hair Cleanser  &  INR 780 (SGD 15.60) Hair Conditioner

My Experience :

The reason why I got this shampoo was because of sandalwood in it.I love anything that has sandalwood as one of the main ingredients in it and I can keep smelling it the whole day as I am totally in love with it.

This cleanser has sandalwood smell it and it really smells nice.I doubt those who hate sandalwood smell will like it as it has a bit too strong of sandalwood smell which only lovers of this can love it.If you use other shampoos which has chemicals in it,the shampoo lathers up because of the chemicals but this shampoo does not lather up at all.I apply this cleanser on alternate days as I have oily scalp.

I am not totally in love with this cleanser and conditioner because it only gives shine to my hair and does not do anything else as prescribed.

In the end,though I loved the sandalwood smell  but it didn't help my oily scalp.
