Lush Whoosh Temple Balm
Advantages: Smells gorgeous; Helps keep your brain awake and alert
I first brought Whoosh Temple Balm about 2 years ago when I was getting some headaches through the stress of a big exam. I didn't think it would work and didn't even think Lush would sell anything like that so was surprised when the guy working there suggested it.... I'd asked about any particularly relaxing bath bombs and thought he was just being nosy when he started asking questions about why I was stressed and stuff! lol Shows how much Lush prices have gone up because I remember I only paid £3.50 for Whoosh then but it's £4.30 for a 10g tin now!
The balm has got a gorgeous smell, it's not the sort of relaxing lavender smell you'd expect but has got a tangy lemon, lime and grapefruit smell. Whoosh isn't exactly made to help with stress, it's more something that says it will brighten up your mind and help you feel more alert. When he was selling me the product the Lush guy said that exams can make people feel stressed because obviously it's a big thing and even if you don't realise it your sleep will suffer and that can make you feel sluggish the next day.
It made sense to me and now after using Whoosh for 2 years it makes even more sense! You just get some of the balm on your finger tips and rub it on your temples, it rubs in quite quick and doesn't leave any greasy or wet marks or anything like that. You can use the balm over foundation without it making your face look a smeary mess and it's easy to apply your make up OVER the balm if you want to do it in that order.
When you're wearing it you can't always smell the balm, the gorgeous lemon smell doesn't come through all the time but sometimes you'll get a whiff of it. I recommended it to my aunt and she swears by Whoosh now, but she applies hers on the skin under her nose because she said the effect is better for her like that. Lush say you can use it on any of your pressure points but I've got into the habit of using it on my temples and for me it works best when I use it there.
It's hard to say what Whoosh does for you because it's not a strong product and won't make you feel 100% different. It definately wakes me up and if you apply it on a hot day it's mega refreshing, it helps me to relax because my mind feels sharper and even sometimes when I've not had a lot of sleep I make sure I use Whoosh and the next day I feel a lot more alert than I would have done if I hadn't been using the balm.
My mum had a stressful few weeks at work recently and I brought her some Whoosh, she said it worked wicked and kept her awake during a lot of late night meetings and...... even one night when she had to work though without sleep she said she managed ok with a combo of Whoosh, Red Bull and coffee!
