Conditioner -LUSH -American Cream

foto

As soon as I read up on the ingredients list on 'American Cream', my mouth was watering/I was in love! However this does not always equate to a brilliant product as I soon learnt! This one smelt like heaven to me in the Lush store and had the 'who's who' of natural ingredients to back it up, but still, once I got to take it home and try it out for myself, I discovered that it didn't condition my thick-yet-dry locks as well enough as I'd imagined it would do, and it left my hair tangled and unruly after blow drying - something I don't come across very often, regardless of how natural or not the product is that I'm using. Made a decision not to use this one again. Grateful that it's cost effective and hasn't left me out of pocket much.

My advice: give it a try if unsure as it won't cost the earth, unlike so many other haircare products out there. This one seems to suit some hair types to the tee whilst others (me included) don't get along all that well with it. We're all different when it comes to our hair...

Cleansers -LUSH -Angels on Bare Skin

I bought this one long ago, when it was shaped like a roulade. It was a pretty big chunk of it too, which i hoped would mean good bang for my buck, but i didn't like it. It's so hard to get it a consistency that you can cleanse anything with. also no lather, i know products don't have to lather to cleanse, but this didn't help the waxy, stubborn inertia of it when i tried and tried to work it into my skin. It looked unattractive too, a puke or poo color, with lots of dry lavender in it that was really annoying. Huge crumbles kept falling everywhere, my skin didn't feel clean or anything. It was just unbelievably useless for me. Maybe if they improve on the texture of this it will actually prove to cleanse and soothe, but i'm not repurchasing this one, still can't forget what a huge disappointment it was.


Bath Treatments -LUSH -Bath Bomb - The Experimenter

this is still a favorite of mine because it doesn't have an overly sweet, girly fragrance. The visual effects are great, for those who enjoy this aspect of lush baths. The water becomes a glittery dark greyish blue after the colorful display stops (ditto on the "galaxy" feel, or a glittery deep ocean), but i like that better than the pinkish, princessy ones. I feel like a Kraken in the deep. It fizzes profusely too, so definitely of the most "fun" bath bombs. To me, this smells like the lush store, although i find the scent varies with batches- my last one smelled strongly of vetivert and less of the other ingredients, but if you're into incense and resins like me that's not a bad thing. Lots of glitter, it did stick to me, and the wash cloth, and it was definitely all over the tub but that's perfectly fine by me. When you party, you party, right? I intentionally left the washcloth to dry in the bathroom. Normally i wouldn't, for obvious hygiene reasons and to avoid mold, but as it dried it kept scenting my bathroom with the gorgeous scent for days after. Again, a little disappointed with my last batch because the scent wasn't as strong as i remembered (happens me to me with other bath bombs too), but i will continue to buy in hopes i score the perfect one again. The first one was also incredibly soothing and nourishing on my skin (i skipped body lotion/oil, even though i had just shaved), the second one less so. I don't know how to describe the original notes in it but they were hypnotizing, interesting, very "Lush" and unexpected, and sexy in a "different" way. I don't find it exactly masculine like some describe it. I can definitely pick up the warmth and sweetness of tonka and a hint of vanilla, maybe a hint of something fruity too, but not like cake at all, the sweeter notes just break up the sharpness of vetivert. Half of the bomb from the first batch was more than enough. I just hope i can get my hands on one as potent as the first one, i'm starting to worry there's less scent in these bath bombs in general lately because of the noticeable difference in scent intensity of some my favorites recently (looking at you, Sparkly Pumpkin, what happened??). Truth be told, i keep knocking off lippies for the price of these products as, objectively speaking, this is a lot to pay for a bath. But when we insist on the comfort of a lush bath, i find with this product at least, it's worth the price.

Other -LUSH -Boom- Toothy Tabs

This product was okay. I bought it mostly because I was curious. I definitely leaves my teeth feeling clean, but not fresh or protected.

It's easy enough to use. Just chew one a couple times, then brush with a wet toothbrush. It foams up a lot, so make sure you're over the sink. I brush all over before I spit, then rinse my toothbrush and quickly go over it again before rinsing and using mouthwash. I had no problem with it leaving behind any black or grey in my mouth. I was only using this in the mornings, and my regular toothpaste at night. Like I said, it made my teeth feet really clean.

However, the taste isn't that great. Not so terrible that I hate using it, but I definitely don't like it either. It smells like Coca-cola and has a bit of a salty mineral kind of taste to it. It's not refreshing like the typical mint toothpastes I'm used to. Also, I just didn't feel like it was protecting my teeth throughout the day like my usual toothpaste.

I don't think I'll be buying this again, but it was fun to try.

Gels/Soaps -LUSH -Sultana of Soap

on 11/18/2018 6:20:00 AM

This is my favorite Lush product. It is SO gentle on the skin, never irritates, not drying. Smells incredibly comforting- clean but warm, creamy and dreamy. I used it as face cleanser (was sceptical about using bar soap on dry skin but it's great) and all over in baths and loved it, especially before bedtime because the comforting scent is like your mum tucking you in when you were little. Some people find the scent too weak, but I can definitely smell it just fine on myself, and in the tub. It's such a nice scent if they turn it into perfume i'll want a big bottle and then some. Sometimes you have try for a bit to get some lather, but it definitely cleans well. There's little bits in it that fall off, but not many, it doesn't really leave a mess, more like a piece of a raisin falls off. The only downside is it lasts me such a short while, it'd be a bit pricey to repurchase regularly but I buy it once or twice a year as a treat or when my skin is very dry. It's the dream.
