Scrubs -LUSH - Ocean Salt

i heard such great things about this mask so when i had the chance i bought it. i think it exfoliates great, i personally love a bit of a rough exfoliator. it looks pretty and i like the smell (smells like the ocean). my issue is that it leaves a layer of oil after rinsing off and for that reason i will not repurchase.

I live in a humid country, so it's good to put in the fridge after buying it. I've really dull skin. Tried the first tub, and my skin never fail to feel really great after that!


Treatments (Face) -LUSH - Grease Lightning Spot Cleanser

I'm on the fence about this product. Whilst it does seem to minimise breakouts with the first couple of applications, if I continue to use it throughout the week it actually ends up causing more even more acne, presumably due to the carrageenan extract which is highly comedogenic. I tend to find myself reaching for this when a spot has become very inflamed and infected and I need a quick fix, but I wouldn't recommend this as a long-term treatment. It's also worth mentioning that this does dry out the skin which can exacerbate red marks, so make sure to apply moisturiser on top of it.

ETA I forgot to note that the packaging is absolutely horrendous! The pump either brings up nothing at all or everything at once, making the process of using it incredibly frustrating and laborious.


Shampoo -LUSH - Seanik

HI, what can i say about this shampoo bar? A few years ago when i was living in London, i spent alot of money on lush ...As far as shampoos go, I've tried BIG, New, Godiva and Squeaky green ( My fave of the lot being New). Then i moved away and forgot about Lush...but recently, i passed by a Lush store and was reminded at how obsessed i was with it once upon a time. So i decided to try it again.
I have fine, shoulder-length hair of medium thickness and wanted some volume and shine. The lovely assistant suggested Seanik. For some reason, seanik has never appealed to me in the past due to its scent and the seaweed sticking out of the bar. I was about to go for Jason and the Argan Oil but then was kinda worried that it would be too heavy for me. So seanik it was!

To be honest, i'm not crazy about the scent. It reminds me of a mild detergent. But it is neither very strong (as Godiva) nor did it last very long. Lathers extremely well and rinses clean. But the after effects were worth the detergent-like scent. Once dried, my hair was light, voluminous and super shiny ( glossy really) Absolutely love it.
I must say that i am still a daily-shampoo-er because my hair still gets a little greasy by the next evening. But that happens no matter what shampoo i use. I don't mind because i enjoy shampooing. its therapeutic! And despite daily use for 2 weeks now, it never dried out my scalp or ends. ( i do use a little conditioner on my ends).

As for storage that most people complain about...it could be down to how you use it. I have the square tin from lush ( the round one is too tight a fit) and i never ever use the bar under a running shower that gets the whole bar wet! That is very wasteful and would make it mushy quickly and difficult to dry out, sticking to the tin. I would wet my hair and dry my hand, swipe one side of the bar over my hair a few times (sticking my head out of the shower) and then flip over the lid of the tin and rest the bar on the edge of the lid (wet side up) Then i carry on with my shampooing, get some water on my hair and lather! I leave the bar on the edge of the lid until it dries completely (usually in 2-3 hrs) and pop it back into the tin. Never have any issues with mushiness or it sticking to the base.

I gave it a 4 star rating because it is rather pricey in my country and i am really unhappy that they made some of the most popular bars exclusively available online and then charge premium delivery rates. Such a rip off !

I am currently counting how many uses i get out of this bar to see if i make the 60-80 washes range claimed by lush. Will update once i finish the whole bar!


Fragrances -LUSH - All Good Things

I've been getting more and more into gourmand perfumes lately, ever since I fell in love with Thierry Mugler's Angel. When browsing perfumes at Lush, the solid version of this was one that I sampled on my wrist, unsure about what I thought about it at the time. A few hours later, though, when I "checked in" with the fragrance, I was completely floored. The warm vanilla, the underlaying smokiness, the cotton candy sweetness, the black pepper whiffs.. To me this perfume is simultaneously sexy, a little bit dark and a lot whimsical, and I love it. I also love Lush's description of it; "both bitter and sweet, representing a parting of ways and celebrating new beginnings." I don't know how a perfume can tell a story like that, but it's spot on what this perfume is all about.

As mentioned above, I first sampled the solid version of this in store. Since Lush's products are severely ramped up in price in Sweden, and I had a London trip booked in the near future, I was planning on buying the liquid/spray perfume during that trip. Once there, I sampled the liquid/spray version before buying, and I wasn't as sure about the scent anymore. I found it to be less balanced - more smoke and spice and less rounded off with sweetness. I passed up buying it, thinking I'd have a new look around for cruelty free perfumes. 6 months later I ended up ordering the solid version on a whim during their boxing day sale, and I haven't regretted it even the slightest bit. I don't know how big the difference really is between the two formulations, but from my own experiences, the solid version is the clear winner.

One con with the solid version is that it has some gold glitter in it, to my annoyance. Luckily, it doesn't show up as much on the skin as you think it would from looking at it in the tin. I would've preferred it without glitter altogether though, since I don't want to have odd specks of glitter on my neck/wrists etc.

I think this solid perfume has a better staying power than the solid version of Karma, though still not as good as a perfume you spray on will. But for the lower price and the ease of carrying/reapplying the solid perfume, that's okay.

I like this almost as much as I like Mugler's Angel. And like Angel, this perfume is probably not for everyone (case in point: my sister think it's madness), but I'm completely sold on it. If anyone like how this scent mellows down, but not the initial smokiness, I'd say try Lush's Vanillary instead. It's a more uncomplicated, yet just as lovely scent from Lush, and my very favourite (burnt) vanilla scent of all time.

+ Cruelty free
+ Vegan
+ Unlike any other perfume I've ever smelled
+ The solid version will last me ages, even considering I might apply it more than once in a day
