Conditioner -LUSH -R&B Revive & Balance Hair Moisturizer

foto

I had a sample pot of this that lasted me four or five uses even though I have long hair. It feels like a super thick deep conditioner, almost like a balm, with a wonderful aroma of jasmine. It can apparently be used on wet or dry hair. When used on dry hair it just made my ends look greasy and I didn’t like that. Therefore I use it on wet hair like a leave in conditioner. It’s heavy, so I use less than a dime size dollop. It is incredibly moisturizing and leaves hair strong and shiny! It WILL weigh your hair down a bit so this is not something I would use if I tried to curl my hair, as my natural texture is somewhere between straight and slightly wavy. This would make the curls fall. However this is precisely why this product would be perfect for curly haired people!


Cleansers -LUSH -Kalamazoo Beard and Facial Wash

I admit that I am reviewing this on behalf of my husband, who I bought this product for. It has the consistency of a thick deep conditioner. It also smells a little bit like a fruity conditioner. A little bit goes a long way and leaves his skin extremely soft! He loves it. I just wish it didn’t have parabens in it.

I am another culprit of curiously dipping into my housemates beard cleansing goodness.. and my god. THIS STUFF IS AMAZING. I have combo skin prone to an oily tzone so tend to go for deep lathery cleansers that dry the feck out of my skin and make my skin red. I thought that was just my face? Nooo. This marvelous goo cleanses off all my makeup and leaves my skin feeling nourished (not greasy) and clean. And above all else, my complexion has drastically changed. My skin tone has evened out (no more tomato face!), my dry patches are sloughing off and the moisture levels are perfect. Never did I think the cleanser was so important. I always shelled out on a good moisturiser! I will buy my own pot of this delicious fruity goo. Final note, oil levels have balanced out and not a pimple in sight. All hail Lush and males with beards

Shampoo -LUSH -Montalbano Shampoo Bar

foto

I think I have tried all the LUSHNESS shampoo bars and they’re all pretty awesome. Like the other bars, the lather is fabulous, and a little goes a long way, so the bar lasts me months. This one smells SO GOOD. Think citrus but literally like fresh squeezed orange juice and lemon juice mixed together. The smell lingers in my hair and gives me a boost throughout the day. This shampoo bar is really good for adding shine to the hair, and it’s quite clarifying. This would be a definite no go for someone with dry hair, and no matter what kind of hair you have, you’ll need to use a conditioner to replace some of what this bar strips. Overall this shampoo bar is awesome.

Masks -LUSH -Mask of Magnaminty

Second time buying this mask. Really liked it the first time too but it got put in the cupboard and forgotten about it, even after reusing several times, as I tend to do more and more these days. Smell wise, the coffee mask is my favourite, but this is far easier to apply. It is not gritty or harsh on the skin (not saying the coffee scrub is harsh, just saying this is easier to apply) like the coffee scrub could be if you went overboard with it. The coffee scrub smells delicious, this doesn’t have a good or bad smell, but I don’t buy it for the smell anyway. Masks have never been easy to wash off for me, but this is easier than most.


Hair Treatments -LUSH -Jasmine & Henna Fluff Eaze Hair Treatment

I apply this once every three to four times per month depending on how much I wash my hair. I get home from work at around 1:30, apply it and do stuff around the house until 5:00 or so. Its expensive I try to take it easy and not over use it, and I use maybe a 1/4 cup and comb it through my hair, (its past my shoulders) with a shower comb and tie it up. I then rinse, shampoo and condition as usual and let air dry. My hair is glossy, and smooth and my natural waves are under control and not wild and spidery. I have been using this on my wavy often frizzy at the temples hair for over three years and it is the only hair treatment I use. I didn't buy it for about six months and I could feel and see the difference. Expensive, heck yes, but nonetheless, I buy it!

Fragrances -LUSH -All Good Things

on 4/11/2019 5:10:00 AM

This dries down to a beautiful, slightly sticky/resinous smelling, warm, boozy, smoky concoction - without smelling "basic" IYKWIM. I'm aware the description I just wrote sounds like a vanilla, cookie-dough, Victoria's Secret thing but it's way more complex than that, I think it's the smoke. There's just something a bit indie about it, almost giving me Santal 33 vibes (but obviously a completely different family of notes). I think Lush's description fits it perfectly - a boozy stumble down a basement or something like that.

I almost didn't get past the opening which I found a bit too sharp-woody and furniture-polishy, but I think the thing with Lush fragrances and the high component of oils etc is that it really depends on skin chemistry. Once it dried down, it was perfect, and then the subsequent times I've worn it, I didn't experience that opening again - perhaps just got used to it. I imagine this fragrance is beautiful in the cold/autumn, but I live in a tropical country and haven't found the scent or sillage overpowering or too "warm". It just occasionally pokes its head up and makes me wonder what that smell is, and then I realise it's me.

I've tried to make all kinds of boozy gourmand vanillas work in the past and none have worked as well has this - Diptyque Eau Duelle, Tokyomilk Dead Sexy, Dior Hypnotic Poison, Serge Lutens Un Bois Vanille... ended up selling them all as there was always a screechy or too powdery note. None of that will All Good Things which is just soft and warm, a bit of a skinscent, interesting enough to be a bit of a head turner, and not too sweet! (I am very sensitive to sweetness).

Honestly for the price this is a real treat, and way more interesting than a lot of stuff on offer at your average mall.


Conditioner -LUSH -Retread Conditioner

foto

Based on reviews, I had low expectations for this product. I find that Lush products are hit and miss… People could either rave about or rant about the exact same product. I got a generously sized sample of this from my local store and used it on my hair before blowing it out for a wedding. My hair looked really full, thick, and healthy. I used it again last night, and I have to say I really like the product. What I like about the conditioner is it doesn’t have silicones in them. Those make the product have slip and can make the hair feel shiny while doing absolutely nothing for it. This doesn’t feel like it’s doing much when it goes on or when you rinse it out, but when your hair dries it will look much shinier and will feel stronger. The one thing I don’t understand about this company… If they try to use safe and natural ingredients, why the hell are they still using parabens when many other companies have somehow find a way to eliminate them? The presence of parabens makes me want to avoid buying products like these.

Fragrances -LUSH -Karma

I was really excited to try this scent as it was listed as a natural perfume. I liked it when I sprayed it but I couldn't get the full aroma because I was in the Lush store and it was overwhelming with scent. When I got in the car I could smell it and it was fine. I felt like I smelled more like a Christmas potpourri spray instead of an orange patchouli scent. I was bummed because I love patchouli but all I got was pine. It was still wearable until I started tasting cinnamon in my mouth and my eyes started to burn. I felt like I had licked a cinnamon sucker and then rubbed it in my eyes. It was slight but enough to bug me so I ended up taking it back. I also had the same reaction to the scent, Lust. Nice jasmine scent but smelled like cinnamon suckers and tasted like it also. I guess there must be an ingredient that they use in their scents that I have an allergic reaction to. Too bad! I'll stick with regular patchouli oil. It actually has a better smell than this fragrance did on my skin. I will say though that both packed a punch and had great staying power. It's worth it if you can tolerate the slight stinging sensation and like the taste of cinnamon.

Gels/Soaps -LUSH -Rose Jam Shower Gel

foto

Rose Jam is the perfect name for this product because it literally smells like a jam made with roses with a faintest hint of spice thrown in. It’s an incredible scent. This body wash is thankfully very strongly scented. A little bit goes a very long way especially if you use a body pouf (which I tend to do because I get so much more bang for my buck that way).

Moisturizers -LUSH -Imperialis - The Majestic Moisturizer

foto

To me this stuff smells just like hot jasmine tea! So right off the bat when opening the jar I got a positive vibe from this product. It feels like a very light moisturizer to me (I have normal to dry skin, sometimes acne prone) but is quite soothing. Doesn’t feel like it’ll do much but when I wake up in the morning my skin is dewy and glowy!


Lotions/ Creams -LUSH -Sympathy for the Skin Body Lotion

foto

This stuff may go bad stuff or there might be variation from batch to batch. Because the first time I smelled this I thought BLECCHHH! And never looked back. Then I started hearing so many wonderful things about this stuff, how it smells like banana, so I asked for a sample when I saw a fresh pot in my shop. This stuff is awesome. It has the texture and scent of a vanilla pudding and it feels so smooth and cooling on the skin. It’s definitely a lighter moisturizer so if you’re super dry it might not do the trick. But as someone who ordinarily hates body lotion because I don’t like the stickiness it creates I love how light and fast absorbing this is, and I would use it every day!


Masks -LUSH -Cup O' Coffee Face & Body Mask

foto

Walked into LUSH with no intention to buy anything, but ended up leaving with this scrub! Used it mostly on my face, but when I was feeling fancy, I’d apply in the shower after shaving! Smells great, left my face and legs feeling so smooth! As far as application goes, just apply a little and work it around your face! It’s very easy to over apply this stuff, you really don’t have too! Use a mask brush to apply, and gently spread it. When rinsing, be very gentle. I used it almost every day, or even when I felt like crap from drinking the night before and needing a little pick me up, I’d throw it on in the shower and instantly feel awake. You could probably make this cheaper than what LUSH charges, but getting the small tub didn’t hurt my wallet! Absolutely recommend this product!


Masks -LUSH -Rosy Cheeks Fresh Face Mask

on 4/6/2019 2:17:00 PM

This mask is very very thick. I did not see any improvement in my skin after washing it off. I am not a fan of Lush masks per se because they are a bit pricey for what they sell. I feel that I can easily whip up the same concoction at home with fresher ingredients. I like the concept however I am just not sold on the idea of paying more for something I can make myself.


Bath Treatments -LUSH -The Comforter Bubble Bar

Although this makes the bath water a shade of pink that is outrageous, and looking rather toxic, I quite like this bar! I love soaking away the hour in this very nicely scented bath- the best part being -it doesnt dry out my skin! Any other product, I would be itching from dry skin for days. I dont even need moisturizer after the bath with this, so I love it.
