This Works: In Transit Camera Close-Up

In Transit Camera close-up thisworks

If a brand claims a particular product does just about everything at once, I am usually rather sceptical. You know the type I mean: the serum that miraculously deals with twelve different issues at once. Usually, these products just leave me disappointed, even if they are actually quite nice, because they simply don’t live up to the bold claims on the packaging.  So, I approached the In Transit Camera Close-Up by Thisworks with caution as this claims to be a mask,moisturiser, and primer in one.

Rosy Cheeks: Lush Fresh Face Mask

Lush Rosy Cheeks Face Mask

Lush was my first proper introduction to green beauty, so they will always have a special place in my heart. This is a brand that doesn’t just use natural as a marketing gimmick, but really lives and breathes the idea of sustainable products.
