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

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

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

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.

Pros - Leaves skin squicky clean and feeling fresh - Leaves skin smooth - Reduce blackheads - Good facial scrub - All natural and eco-friendly Cons - Painful to use at first esp if you're not used to facial scrub - Leaves black/grey residue - Not ideal for sensitive skin since it might give your skin redness after use because of the scrub - A bit messy to use for beginners - Has muddy smell

Masks -LUSH -Cup O' Coffee

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.

The fragrance is super strong........i put it on and washed it off right away and try to cover it up with another conditioner because i have sensitive skin on my face which can reacts to strong scent. It smells nice it's just too much to my liking.

Bath Treatments -LUSH -Ro's Argan Body Conditioner

I'm a little torn on this product in general - I really wanted to like it wholeheartedly. I purchased it when I was exploring a bunch of other in-shower body lotions this past winter when I was going through a rough time and wanted to eliminate as many extra out-of-the-shower steps in my day to day life as I could. I live in Ottawa, so the climate in the winter is REALLY dry, and I was under no illusion that this would replace moisturizing post-shower (and it didn't, not really).

I kept it around and have been using it more in the summer months, and it does seem to do a decent job of moisturizing, but only on certain days. Some days it works really wonderfully, provides a nice moisture level which absorbs quite easily. On other days, however, it doesn't absorb, leaves my skin feeling a bit itchy and patchy, and sits like a film over top my skin. On these days it's really hard to apply sunscreen, and I find I'm left waiting around for it to "dry" a bit more so that my sunscreen doesn't ball up everywhere. I've toyed around with the amount I use, and I find it doesn't seem to matter how much I use - I still get this weird inconsistency.

The scent is pleasant enough - I don't find it to be too overpowering one way or another, and it fades a bit more once you're out of the shower. I don't think I'll be purchasing again, just because I find the price point to be a little steep (even though I did get a good amount of use out of it) and I like the Nivea in-shower lotion a lot better for a lot cheaper.

Gels/Soaps -LUSH -Karma soap

Scent was way too strong for my bloodhound nose. Washed ok,nothing special, but the scent would have been better as an air freshener.

WEEK 3 UPDATE: I used it on my face and body for a week and it left a greasy feel and felt like it wasn't washing of properly. Used it as hand soap but felt my hands never got clean enough. Threw it out. It made the bathroom smell good but that's the only benefit.


Moisturizers -LUSH -Cosmetic Lad

I bought this and charity pot. Day one I tried charity pot which kept me moisturized all day. Day 2 I tried this crap. It sat on top of my skin and by nightfall I had a line of zits forming around my chin, mouth and nose. My hands also felt as if this product just sat on top of it. Not impressed. I'll use it up as hand lotion but when it's finished I won't repurchase. Not for extremely dry skin.

WEEK 3 UPDATE. This didn't even cut it hand lotion. It was so useless I gave it away to someone who didn't have dry skin. Maybe they'll have better luck.


Deodorants -LUSH -T'eo Deodorant

I'm only 4 days into wearing this but it works well for me. I was smart enough to read the reviews before purchasing and rubbed my fingers over the bar then lightly brushed it against my pits to avoid any possibility of irritation. I put it ion in the morning and by 9pm I can slightly smell my natural odor coming through. If you have a nose like a bloodhound like me it will have a pretty overpowering scent but not in a bad way. Because of this I can see myself wearing it every 2 days, not every day to give my nose a break. Unlike other people it did not irritate when I shaved my pits but I use a Gillette (for women) Sensor Excel blade which you can dry shave with without any irritation so maybe that's why.

3 WEEK REVIEW. Loved the concept but as predicted the scent became way to much for my nose, even after using it every 2 days. Great as a room freshener but too much perfume for my body.

Highlighters -LUSH -Feeling Younger

I couldn't find a better liquid highlighter than this!
It blends perfectly and looks natural, feels light and my skin loves it. Sometimes I use it before my foundation and sometimes after - to only highlight cheeks, it depends on what result I want to achieve. Lasts forever.

It feels like you're spreading the most delicious cookie butter on your face and I adore that. Brings my dry and dull skin back to feeling moisturized and smooth. I usually take my time to rinse it off slowly, adding small amounts of water at time, so that it also gives a bit of a scrubbing effect. Also lasts a surprisingly long time, I think I got 10-15 uses out of this, which makes the price feel quite reasonable.
