Lotions/ Creams -LUSH -Sleepy Hand and Body Lotion

I very rarely write reviews. I received this as a Christmas present. I have to admit I had reviews about it already as I am an avid Makeupalley fan and struggle with sleep. I have very oily skin even though I’m 48!! So, I never use skin cream. However, I am already addicted!! The smell is just like another reviewer stated “lavender marshmallow”. I don’t like sweet scents. So, this is not too sweet. It just mellows and sweetens the lavender scent. To the point that I wish I could bathe in this. Past the incredible scent, this thick pretty lilac coloured cream absorbs so amazingly. Even into oily skin. Plumps up my skin and reminds me that oily does not mean hydrated. And, yes, is so completely relaxing. Had an amazingly relaxing evening and a great night sleep after applying this.
Since I’ve been using this, my acne on my chest, back and arms has cleared up. Has anyone else experienced this? I am now thinking about using it on my face!!
So, I have been using this in my FACE for the past two weeks. It CLEARS my skin up!! Wtf?!? I have tried so many products. So many high end moisturizers for acne prone aging skin. And this is my miracle?!? I can’t use it during the day as it is too oily. I apply it liberally at night to my face and wake up with glowing, cleared skin. It actually heals the acne that I have and evens the tone of my skin. Eliminates the redness. I am really curious to know if anyone else has used this on their face? I know it’s a courageous thing to do, but WHY is this working for me?!?
I have used LaMer, recherche biologique, drunk elephant, ole henriksen, philosophy, tacha. You name it, I’ve tried it. All the money spent, and I end up resorting to a hand and body lotion on my FACE?!? Maybe it’s the lavender? Thoughts please?!?

Powders -LUSH -Silky Underwear Dusting Powder

on 12/26/2017 4:46:00 AM

One lippie off because I don't find this as moisturising as is claimed, despite the cocoa butter. It has a pleasant, long-lasting vanilliary scent; I don't get much jasmine. Silky Underwear layers well under vanilla scents. I love it under Annick Goutal Songes. People who complain that it's messy to use have perhaps not grown up with old fashioned talcum powder on the bathroom shelf. Powder is always tricky to use no matter how careful you are and you have to expect that some is going to end up on the bathroom floor. If you have a bath, stand in or lean over it while applying.

Cleansers -LUSH -Dark Angels

on 12/25/2017 11:50:00 AM

I finished using this product, and I have mixed feelings about it.
I really loved how clean and soft my skin was after washing it with Dark angels. BUT what really was annoying that it left dark patches all over my skin, so I had to have additional cleanser to wash it off. Which was really a downside, will now repurchase because of it.


Masks -LUSH -Cosmetic Warrior Mask

foto

This was my first lush face mask and honestly I’m surprised I ever bought another after this. The sales lady recommended this to me when I told her I had acne prone skin. Yes the smell is bad, but I was expecting that as one of the main ingredients is garlic. What I wasn’t expecting was multiple clusters of cysts to form on my cheeks overnight and continuing into the following week. This sat in my fridge for a few weeks until I eventually threw it away without touching it ever again. I see it works for some people, but if you have acne prone skin beware!


Masks -LUSH -Mask of Magnaminty

This product is so much fun to use, however, I don't think it does much for me. I feel that there could be better ones out there that could contribute better to the improvement of my skin. Unfortunately, mask of magnaminty just doesn't cut it.


Bath Treatments -LUSH -Think Pink Bath Bomb

on 12/20/2017 11:11:00 PM

foto

The color is bright and beautiful, the little flowers are essentially little soaps. Then there's the tiny pieces of heart-shaped paper that float around. Be careful around this one because if it becomes too potent, (using it in say, a foot soak.) It WILL stain. But toss it in a bath and it'll fizz delightfully and the color is just so beautiful. Skin feels soft and moisturized. Smells great, like candy but not a tacky sense. Love.


Bath Treatments -LUSH -Ickle Baby Baff Bomb

on 12/20/2017 11:09:00 PM

If you're looking for a vivid, show-y bath bomb this is not the one for you, try the Pink or the Intergalactic from Lush. I use this one mainly for unwinding after a stressful day and just soaking my troubles away. Great scent, and leaves my skin feeling soft and smelling wonderfully. The little robot shape I think is adorable, and it's the lowest priced Lush bath bomb they have. Recommend if you're looking for a fun way to de-stress.


Cleansers -LUSH -Angels on Bare Skin

Words cannot describe how much I love this stuff. Angels On Bare Skin has really made a great difference in my skin and my skincare routine. I have really oily skin and ever since I have been using this stuff my skin hasn't been as oily but at the same time it isn't drying out my skin, my skin is not too oily and not too dry ever since I have been using this stuff. I have had no blemishes and my skin is left feeling baby soft and is even in skintone. I have used this for over a year now and My skin has never been in better condition than it is now it is luminous, not too oily and clear, I have gone through too many jars to count. I am 21 years old and have oily skin so if your in your twenties and have oily skin I would recommend Angels On Bare Skin.

Masks -LUSH -Rosy Cheeks

on 12/16/2017 9:38:00 PM

I'm actually a bit sad to say I'm not very impressed with this mask. I adore Lush's Catastrophe Cosmetics mask - it has turned my acne prone skin around numerous times and will always be my go to mask when my skin is stressed and breaking out. I figured this would be something similar. Both masks contain calamine powder, kaolin and rose in some form (CC has rose absolute, RC has rose petal infusion, rose oil and rose clay(?)). Both masks are pretty soothing as well as mattifying, but Rosy Cheeks to me is more drying. It gives me a slightly tight and itchy feeling after washing it off, and I don't even have particularly dry skin. Most of the time moisturizing takes away most of the dehydrated feeling, but it's still a bit too much for my combo skin. My skin feels smooth afterwards, but it doesn't really look any different from before use. I don't notice it doing anything to combat breakouts, either.

I had quite high hopes for this mask, perhaps too high, but then again I always have Catastrophe Cosmetics to fall back on so I'm not too bummed about it. One thing I'll say is that if you don't like the residue that some of Lush's masks can leave on the skin, this one might be a good alternative, since there's minimal residue with this one. People with oilier skin types would probably like it more than I do, too.

+ Cruelty free
+ Vegan
+ Mattifying, so probably best for people with oily skin
+ The small spots that appear in the mask when it has dried down makes me think it might be extracting some stuff from pores
+ The scent is quite nice - more of a classic rose scent than the Rose Jam scent, but still quite light and fresh
+ While it does dry down stiff, it doesn't crumble all over the place like some Lush masks!

- Doesn't give that fresh faced, "I just did a face mask" glow that I want from masks
- Doesn't do anything for acne either (not that it's advertised to do so, but seeing as it shared some main ingredients with Catastrophe Cosmetics, I still expected it to do at least something in that area)
- Makes my skin feel pretty parched


Shampoo -LUSH -Daddyo shampoo

I've been using this shampoo on and off for years. I do have (bottle) blonde hair (and a fair few greys too, sob) but that's not what I buy it for. I buy this, and I love Juicy because they both seem to make a good clarifying shampoo for me. Every Christmas I treat myself to a small bottle of each (would have to rob a bank to buy the larger ones anyway!) and they almost last the year as I only use them to get rid of build-up. They would be far too harsh to use on a daily basis anyway as they strip the hair.
I've never noticed my hair being less brassy, nor has it stained it purple or pink like others say! I do love the smell of this shampoo, just like the kids sweets. Yum :-)

Cleansers -LUSH -Dark Angels

ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC. Feels amazing and it’s like therapy for your skin! Yes, it leaves a grey/black residue on your face but try either rinsing your face with a light lather of a soapy cleanser or spritz some toner on your dry skin after cleansing and wipe down with cotton wool. It may seem as “extra work” in having to remove the grey/back excess residue but due to the awesome results from this product, I have found it a small “extra something” to add into your routine and you don’t even notice that extra step to be honest - fantastic product! My skin loves it. Shrinks pores also!

Shampoo -LUSH -Soak and Float

on 12/16/2017 7:14:00 AM

LOVE THE SMELL! OH! Save me before I float away! Lol. I have been using this bar for a while now and it is always one I go back to - love all the ingredients and the rose and marigold flower petals are super unique and just gorgeous! The slightly woody fragrance is almost that of a sultry scent and makes you feel a little sexy. Afraid that the loose bits would stay in my hair after rinsing, but nope! All gone - everytime. Sexy. Love it. Would and have bought it again. Well done Lush!

Hair Treatments -LUSH -Roots Healthy Scalp

on 12/16/2017 7:08:00 AM

Firstly, please remember - that for hair growth to occur, you need to shed excess hairs first (read up about the growing cycle of your hair). I have read so many reviews on here that say that some people have experienced hair loss - due to the peppermint content and it’s ability to open up the follicles on your head (hence, the tingling feeling), it assists with helping your hair SHED THE DEAD HAIRS FASTER THAN IT NORMALLY WOULD - Just wrote that in caps lock so as to make the quote eye-catching :) I have really long hair and I find that this DOES work terms of promoting hair growth. You have to use this for a while - I found that over a timeframe of about 3-6months, I started to notice a difference. Hair is smooth also, but more results from actual hair growth, really. Would buy again and already have! The one Con. would be it’s consistency - if it was a little smoother it would just make it easier to spread. But I still love it :)


Gels/Soaps -LUSH -Rub rub rub showergel

At first I wasn’t sure about the smell, but started to warm to it a little more. Excellent value for money and I find it to be a terrifically, light to moderate exfoliator - sooo good on your hands and feet! Stimulates light blood flow too which is awesome. I absolutely LOVE the way it suds! Love the blue colour as well. Only giving it 4/5 due to the smell of the product but it isn’t (that) bad and so, I would be more than happy to buy it again


Masks -LUSH -Catastrophe Cosmetic Fresh Face Mask

on 12/15/2017 12:00:00 PM

This is, out of the Lush masks I have tried, the best one so far. I was truly so impressed with this one. It has a nice consistency to it and isn't too thick or too runny. It spreads easily over the face and has a nice cooling effect. I always let it sit for atleast 10 minutes so it can dry down. Happy to say that it doesn't give a tingling or a burning effect either. I hate it when masks have your face on fire.

Rinsing it off was easy too. Easier than the other two masks I've tried from Lush which is good. Afterwards, I really can tell redness has faded and any pimple or discoloration has faded to almost nothing. I can't really say that it is hydrating all that much, but I always apply a facial oil so I'm not bothered by that. I have other products that add the moisture. For atleast a good few days, my skin is noticeably more even, less red and overall more glowy. I will absolutely repurchase!
