Small Haul – Lush’s Dream Cream and Joico Hair Treatments

Posted on

Hi everyone! Today I went to Lush, one of my all time favourite shops, and bought the much raved about Dream Cream.

Dream cream is much loved for it’s effect on troubled skin. It is said to help even medical skin problems, such as eczema and psoriasis. As a child I had severe atopic eczema on my arm, and I wish that products such as this were around then.

I wanted this cream, as I wanted something suitable for sensitive skin. The skin on my face and neck is becoming more sensitive, I think because of the Vitamin C and other treatments I’ve been using. I hope the natural ingredients will help to soothe and calm my face and neck.

My boyfriend has some active psoriasis, and I will be testing this on him as well. Over the last month, I’ve been testing various things on my boyfriend’s psoriasis and there have been some surprising results. I will write about that soon.

I also received the much loved Joico hair products 4 days ago. I have used twice already, the K Pac Deep Penetrating Reconstructer and the Intense Hydrater. All I can say is that they are miracle workers. I will write a post about that soon 🙂


First Haul Post

I received in the post today a box of Frownies, and an Emu Oil eye cream. I’m really excited to try them out!

I have wanted to buy the emu oil cream for a while now, as I have read that it helps with under eye problems. I want to try the frownies on my forehead, in the 2 areas directly above each of my eyebrows. I don’t have any lines at the moment but I do often have headaches when I wake up in the mornings. I think this is because I frown and screw up my face when sleeping. Now at age 30, I notice that my forehead moves a lot when I speak or make expressions. When I was in my early 20s, I swear it was hard to even move my forehead (or that if I moved it, it was not noticable).

Below is a picture of the instructions that come with the frownies.

I have to admit that when I received the frownies, I was a little disappointed as the box is so small! They are expensive, so if they work well I may experiment with using microfiber tape (as others have suggested). The emu oil seems good value for money, as you get 25ml.

I will write reviews of these products after I have used them for some time.

It’s beautiful weather in Zürich today, it feels already like summer.  The temperature reached the mid 20s last week.
