Lotions/ Creams -LUSH -Elbow Grease

on 7/30/2017 10:29:00 PM

Join the coconut oil craze! This is a coconut oil based product - it is like a balm to start and it melts with your body heat - a little goes a LONG way! There is a light floral fragrance - it says Orange Blossom on the packaging. This is also a pot package.

Masks -LUSH -Rosey Cheeks

on 7/30/2017 10:26:00 PM

Rosy Cheeks is a beautiful mask. It is a " Calm and soothing" mask - not meant to exfoliate. It does just that. The rose sent is very relaxing. I'm not a huge fan of the pot packaging, but that is signature Lush. Price point is ok for the amount of mask, but there is a super short shelf life and people have to be aware of that.


Cleansers -LUSH -Aqua Marina Cleansing Roll

foto

I decided to purchase this cleanser after a Lush employee demoed it on my hand. I loved the way it made my skin feel. I thought it was kind of pricey though. This is the first solid cleanser I've ever used so I was intrigued. I enjoyed the texture but punching off pieces to use was annoying because there was no way to control grabbing the same amount every time. It was also inconvenient to have to mix it with water. Sometimes i'd grab too much product and it would be way too thick. Other times I used too much water and it was too thin and did nothing. I honestly didn't see any effects positive or negative. This product is just too expensive and inconvenient for my personal needs and I wouldn't repurchase.

Masks -LUSH -Mask of Magnaminty

on 7/29/2017 5:16:00 AM

was one of the first things I have ever bought from lush and overall I am in love with the store, great vibes, products and smell. I read other reviews online after buying this to see what it did for other people, and the reviews said it was great for acne and pimple prone skin. I used it for the first time last night and my skin is still quite red and I broke out today. the mask is a good price, nicely packaged and smells amazing but didn't see a difference. I will continue to use this product as the reviews were glowing and I know some products take some time to truly work.


Gels/Soaps -LUSH -Whoosh Shower Jelly

on 7/27/2017 11:16:00 AM

As with the Refresher Shower Jelly, which I purchased at the same time as this, I absolutely adore the fragrance - a blend of lime, lemon and grapefruit (which I actually prefer to the single lemon note of Refresher) - it is beyond invigorating and just the sort of thing to energize me after a tough gym workout or wake me up in the morning. Given the hot, humid, oppressive summers of southern Ontario, a shower product with a fragrance like this is a delight to use and I look forward to it. These also seem to be gentle and not overly drying on my skin, at least in summer. My only complaint is the silly "jelly". On the advice of the LUSH SA, I have used a small spoon to break this into smaller, "single use" chunks but it is still awkward to use. I would so much prefer this in a simple shower-gel form and I'm going to comb through LUSH's catalogue to see if there is a shower gel with the same scent and invigorating feeling to it.


Gels/Soaps -LUSH -Refresher Shower Jelly

I purchased both Refresher and Whoosh at the same time, having never tried the shower Jellies before. I absolutely love almost anything citrus in the summer and the idea that you can chill or freeze these before using to make them even more cooling intrigued me. The SA at my local LUSH, who was just fantastic, said she cuts hers into lots of little pieces right from the get go since the jelly blobs tend to crack over time if you use them whole. I use a tiny spoon to "cut" mine and insert a piece into a shower pouf to use it that way as trying to manipulate the little blob in your hand is just ridiculous and usually it ends up sliding from hand onto the shower floor and then good luck trying to pick it up again! As much as I really love the smell of this and how truly refreshing and invigorating it is, I absolutely loathe this "jelly" gimmick. I don't like using a shower pouf, to be honest, and prefer using a Buf Puf or similar type exfoliating sponge or mitt and while the jellies do work with these, you have to be careful, at least at the outset or, again, your jelly can end up on the shower floor instead of on you. I do wish they made these as shower gels and I am really on the fence as to whether I'd repurchase. I probably will but more as an indulgence than as regular shower product.


Skincare - Body -LUSH -T For Toes

I have 2 pairs of fairly expensive Mephisto sandals that I've had for years and which, because of all the wear, really stink to high heavens. They're fine for wearing but if I have to take them off (as I did at physio a few weeks ago), the smell is embarrassing. I tried a spray from Soft Moc and it works but only for one wearing and I figure that soaking leather in some random wet, chemical spray isn't the best thing for the shoes. I figured I'd give this powder a try and I find it pretty decent. It smells nice, it contains kaolin which absorbs odors, bicarbonate of soda (we all know what baking soda does for stinking fridges!), as well as tea tree. I shake a goodly amount onto the foot-bed of my sandals and leave it overnight. Next day, I shake out the excess and - voila - no embarrassing sandal stink and - bonus - it keeps my feet feeling nice and fresh. The container this is sold in is ridiculous, however. I wish it was in a shaker like those pictured but instead, it's in a small plastic bottle with a "press" lid like those on Body Shop shower gels or some of my liquid facial cleansers. Really stupid packaging but that won't put me off this product. It's a sandal-weather "must have" for me.

Lip Treatments -LUSH -Mint Julips Lip Scrub

foto

This is a really lovely lip scrub. I wear a lot of matte and liquid matte lipsticks, so I do need to exfoliate every couple of days to avoid any flakiness. Mint Julips has a sweet vanilla-mint scent and flavor that is very pleasant. It is very gritty, but not oily, which I like. It doesn't do anything except exfoliate the lips, so you do need to add a very rich lip moisturizer or balm after you've scrubbed. I love this in combination with Bite Agave Lip Mask before bed, but any good, emollient balm is nice to use afterwards. This is a must-have for soft lips.


Cleansers -LUSH -Dark Angels

foto

I love this! I have am on my 4th tub and have came to the conclusion that you get a different result for each batch of dark angels. This is handmade so I will accept that.

The current tub that I am using washes off very easily. I do not leave it on for a long time. I rinse it off the moment i am done rubbing my face with this. My experience with the previous tub wasn't that great. It left black patches on my face and I needed to use my other facial cleanser to do a quick rinse to get rid of the black patches. Therefore i would recommend using this only at night. I had no issues with faint black patches on my skin at night. It didn't cause any irritation.

I have noted different intensity of the scents of all 4 tubs. Also, my current tub has very obvious chunks of black sugar grains.

Despite the inconsistency in the scent and quality of the product, its performance remained the same in keeping my oily skin in check across all 4 tubs.

Cleansers -LUSH -Angels on Bare Skin

foto

I am someone with oily skin and I tried this cleanser last year. A year later I am still using, it is the best cleanser I have ever used. I use this cleanser every night after I take my makeup off and it really gets down deep and removes any makeup remnants I may have missed and clears the excess oil on my face off so I am left with skin that feels clean and fresh without my skin feeling tight like some cleansers do and that's because this cleanser while removing oil and dirt is not stripping the skin. I also get redness on my face which completely disappears after I use this. Make sure not to get water into the container though because the cleanser will break down more quickly and not last you as long as if you keep it dry. My only complaint about this cleanser would be that I tend to go through it very quickly and I make sure not to use too much whenever I use it but other than that I love this cleanser. If you have oily skin I would highly recommend giving this cleanser a try, you get 100G for $17.50.

Cleansers -LUSH -Dark Angels

before using this product I was using Cetaphil's cleansing bar which sadly left my pores clogged. I had pretty bad acne after a while and at first, I tried LUSH's herbalism which didn't help much. it wasn't working for me and I wanted more of a deep cleansing exfoliant to clean my skin. someone working there at LUSH told me to try dark angels and I have been using it for almost 2 years now. it cleared up my skin so well and was perfect for my oily/acne prone skin. I have the occasional breakout here and there, and I will admit this doesn't really help prevent my PMS breakouts very much, but other than that it's amazing. it is a little drying, to be honest, so I think this is better for oily skin peeps out there. if used every day it could last you up to a month and a half almost. This product really helped reduce and clear my acne and this is definitely something to invest in.

Lips -LUSH -Popcorn lip scrub

on 7/22/2017 9:13:00 PM

I bought this scrub as a prep for matte lipsticks. To be honest I feel it really doesn't do much in terms of sloughing off dry lip debris. When it comes to matte lip stains, best prep is a good lip balm. As for this product it tastes really good and because of that, it gives me good incentive to use it. I don't regret purchasing it as there is ample product in the small tub it comes in for a nominal price. Defin not a necessity but a whim splurge... I would prob buy again but a diff flavour hehe...

Gels/Soaps -LUSH -Snow Fairy Shower Gel

on 7/22/2017 8:44:00 PM

I adore this shower gel and it is the one LUSH product I would stock up on during the holiday season. The scent is Strawberry Twizzlers to my nose which, conveniently, is my favorite candy! I can stretch a bottle a long time as I'm writing this review in July and have about a third of a medium size left. I find the formula washes away cleanly while being creamy enough to leave my sensitive skin comfortable. Yes, it is definitely overpriced for what it is, but I'm willing to pay the price for a daily bit of comfort and shower happiness.

Masks -LUSH -Cup O' Coffee

on 7/21/2017 9:01:00 AM

I've been using this product for a couple of weeks and I'm halfway through. My skin does feel smoother immediately after washing it off, however, I don't think it made any difference regarding the texture of my skin.
If I use it before putting on my makeup, I think it makes the foundation application a bit better.
It's quite rought so I try not to rub a lot. It makes a mess when you take it off and it stained my washcloth.
The smell is quite strong, my brother liked it, my mum said it's like nicotine. I'm neither amazed nor repulsed by it.
I will use it up, but will not repurchase.
