Masks -LUSH -BB Seaweed Fresh Face Mask

WOW. I love this! My whole experience felt like I was at the spa. I was deciding between BB Seaweed and Rosy Cheeks for my 5 empty pot exchange and I have 0 regrets. BB Seaweed goes on smooth and it felt so luxurious on my skin. I instantly felt like my pores "woke up and drank up all the good stuff" for the full 15 minutes I had it on. I felt like this moisturizes, cleanses, exfoliates and calms. 10/10!! I am usually quite hesitant to try new products because of the ways my skin reacts and I have to end up throwing the product away, but this has become my new favourite :)

My tired, sensitive and dry skin felt calm and well taken care of. I love the smell of BB Seaweed as well, relaxing and soothing!

Cleansers -LUSH -Aqua Marina Cleansing Roll

I LOVE THIS! I am on my fourth tub. Aqua Marina helps to calm my sensitive skin that has bumps and rashes once in a while. It also helps to soothe my skin when there is hormonal acne or when my face gets irritated by new weather conditions. I use it every day but the calamine can be quite drying, use a moisturizer after that.

Masks -LUSH -Don't Look At Me Fresh Face Mask

This was good, and I love the super blue blue colour but it's not as good as the "just to clarify" mask


Skincare -LUSH -Just to Clarify Jelly Mask

on 12/10/2018 3:42:00 AM

This mask works well as an exfoliator/clarifyer and skin brightener.

The jelly texture is a bit different but not unpleasant - it softens to a paste when you warm it by rubbing between your hands. The smell is a bit orangey, a bit zesty which is nice, but not at all overwhelming. I like to use this on my face and neck, a lightish application and leave it for ages until it's completely dry. Then I put some warm water on my hands and use it to moisten the mask and soften it, then massage it like a scrub. There are gritty bits in the mask so this gives a good exfoliation. I do the backs of my hands too. Then rinse it off and my skin is smoother and brighter. I get about 5 applications out of each pot. I really enjoy the lush products and this is one of my favorites.

Bath Treatments -LUSH -Under The Umbrella Tree Bath Bomb

on 12/8/2018 2:58:00 PM

Wowzer. Finally one I really liked.

This is a small bath bomb in comparison to others. Shaped like a tree and turns the water a mild green. No swirls, fizzing, popping, but I don't personally care for those.

It has the Breath of God fragrance. I've had a shower card with the scent and that didn't impress me, but this sure did. It is incensy, resiny, and very woodsy. Think buddhist temple in the Himalayas. But wait- it's Buddhist temple meets grandfather's barbershop. Has a hint of aftershave or shaving cream our granddads used. Takes a specific person perhaps, but damn I love it. I found it very soothing and thought it really was like the product description. Often I'd buy scents labelled as woodsy only to not get anything woodsy at all, more like citrus. This lived up to expectations and if the B.O.G. perfume is anything like this it's to die for.

It could be considered masculine by some, so probably not great for lovers of sweet candy and florals. I love that it smells like a man who'd spent hours in a forest or wood cabin, and maybe grandpa because who doesn't miss grandpa.

Doesn't feel nourishing, but not drying either. It felt like a detox bath tbh, but I did use very hot water so maybe that's why. It has a relaxing feel overall, and comforting without being anything like a gourmand smell and without butters in the formula. No slip or staining in the tub.

I knocked off lippies because the scent is weak, but it's at least much more there than my other recent lush purchases. For the price it's not worth it to me, but would be if wherever you're buying them the scent still packs a proper Lush punch. If so, and you like woodsy, meditative shaving cream (or are buying for an outdoorsy male), I recommend.


Gels/Soaps -LUSH -Golden Pear Soap

foto

I got a free sample after christmas, and I'm so happy they did! This soap in general came out as a surprise. I don't tend to like most of Lush's bar soaps because they don't lather very well and therefore finish quickly, but this didn't do that at all! It also has a crazy amount of butters, so it's nice and moisturising, but also doesn't leave a film on the skin. As someone who moisturises often due to eczema and sometimes feels a little sticky, feeling clean is a must for me.

Smells lovely as well, a surprisingly gentle fragrance from Lush. I have repurchased, and will continue to do so!

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

foto

My favourite mask of all time. I like to put this on right before I get into the shower, then rinse off in the shower. I also use it all over my body as an exfoliant, not just as a facial mask. It smells amazing, feels refreshing, and my skin is soft and smooth after! I went through my first tub so fast and I will 100% be repurchasing.


Bath Treatments -LUSH -Yog Nog Yule Log Bath Bomb

on 11/30/2018 1:57:00 PM

A christmasy ginger cake and butter scent. It's supposed to also have ylang ylang and clove oil but I couldn't smell any, and by now, you already know how the rest of the review goes. "I don't know what's happening with my 2018 purchases of bath bombs but they barely have a scent any more". I'm actually wondering whether the fact I live in a small town means the local lush store has poor product turnover and I really am getting old batches of everything. That would actually mean there's hope in buying them online and getting ones with the usual scent intensity. If lush has just overall changed the formula into a barely scented one than that's just tragic.

Bloggers have recommended cutting this bath bomb as it is very large, but i have been unable to do that with any bomb lately (due to weak fragrance again).

This bath bomb looks like cake, and the center is very soft and mushy like cookie dough. It doesnt melt right away. I ran it across my skin like a scrub and that at least helped me smell it. Really like the ginger in this. Unfortunately I also smelled something horrible when it was almost done dissolving, but thank god it didn't linger. It turns the bath a milky, buttery shade and consistentcy.

In fairness, it was easier to smell this than lord of misrule, but still, who wants to strain and cup bathwater in their hands and dunk their face into it and hover on the water surface with their nose to get a whiff of the scent?? Not me.

Lush baths used to have a magical scent that hovered above the bath and filled the bathroom and the next day when you got home from work you could still smell it from the entrance and the bathroom smelled amazing for days after. I would settle for less, but not for this little. Cheap supermarket buys are way above any bath bomb I bought at lush the past few months.

Again, might just be something to do with the local store but I'm not buying any more. I would recommend to those who, if they exist, are still getting normally fragranced lush products. With appropriate fragrance strength, this would be a very cozy winter bath bomb.

Super curious if my remaining three bombs will smell more but don't want to get my hopes high. Funny though, my face mask from lush smells intense and divine. Would love to know whether this is happening to others.


Shampoo -LUSH -Jason and the Argan Oil Solid Shampoo Bar

Having used a lot of Lush shampoo bars and always loving them, this one really took me by surprise. I bought it because of the amazing smell and the claims. However, this fell farrr short of my expectations. For reference, I have fine, smooth hair which normally shine beautifully after shampooing. However, after using this, i noticed that my hair was stringy and stuck together in clumps. The ends felt almost sticky and dry at the same time while my scalp was so oily, it looked like i haven't washed my hair in ages. To add to the disaster, i constantly had to clean my hairbrush because of build up that looked 'dusty'. This shampoo leaves a ton of residue on the hair and scalp and while i am not prone to dandruff, i can see how it would totally cause itchy scalp.
I went back to regular drugstore shampoo that my husband uses and it totally restored my hair to its usual feel and texture and my hairbrush no longer has that weird residue.
Too bad this was such a big fail because it smells sooo good. I will use it up as a body soap but will never repurchase again. I will go back to my tried and tested bars. ( HIWMY, Seanik, New)

Bath Treatments -LUSH -Lord of Misrule bath bomb

on 11/29/2018 10:51:00 AM

This has so much going for it that I honestly feel bad giving it such a low rating, but I want to give an honest review for those who are looking for the same things as me in a lush bomb as I feel they would be just as disappointed.

Firstly, it is a big bomb, so I wanted to be economical and use half of it, but despite using a very sharp blade I had great difficulty getting it into smaller chunks. However, soon after I had put the chunks in the bath I realized using half wouldn't cut it and dropped the rest in.

I got a floater, despite having chopped it, the larger chunk floated and it fizzed in really nice swirls of color and the popping candy inside crackled beautifully, like a fireplace. I'm not even one to care for the fun aspect of lush bombs, the colors, fun effects and such could be missing for all I care, but I admit this pretty display held my attention for quite a long few minutes it lasted and I caught myself smiling watching it. Really adorable and must've taken a lot of work developing formulas that do this so I have to hand it to Lush. When it's done dissolving it turns the water a deep black currant hue, also very nice.

My disappointment is with the scent, as at least mine had such a frail, weak scent that I struggled again and again to pick it up, nose hovering right above the water, cupping the water in my hands and sniffing etc and yet barely being able to pick up much. I feel uncertain even attempting to describe the notes in it seeing as I hardly smelled a thing, but what I did pick up after countless attempts and an awful long time in the bath seems like it would've smelled really lovely had it had some intensity. I got black currant or elderberry syrup, festive plum marmalade, something reminiscent of those winter season "winter berry" candles but in a good way, not like a candle but convincingly like a bath product with those notes. There's certainly also a hint of a green scent to it, not sharp but pleasantly refreshing in a warm way somehow. I'm not a lover of black currant or elderberry in any form, but even to me, the scent would simply "work" in this product, if it worked at all intensity wise. In fairness, as I was washing it off I did smell it, and even on my skin when I got out of the bath, and my partner could smell something nice, but nothing that would endure or be noticeable in a way lush stuff used to be. I received insult to injury when I later washed my hands with my cheap drugstore brand wash and the scent of that enveloped me like magic. A shame as I feel this would otherwise be a very very nice scent indeed. Not surprised that i'm not picking up on notes people list because of how little I could smell, but that might be helpful to those who are put off by mentions of pepper and similar sharp things, I don't notice them.

I buy these bombs for the olfactory experience and partly because they're so pampering on the skin. But the therapeutic scents are really the only thing that, for me, justify paying so much for a bath product. I'm glad someone mentioned versions by year as my recent experience with lush baths (even the ones that smelled like heaven before) has had me convinced for a while there was something wrong with my sense of smell. I do however pick up scents of everything else I use and encounter perfectly fine, and I can't always be so unlucky as to be getting bad or old bathces of everything. I bought several more bombs I will be trying soon, and suggest to anyone to get their bathroom and water temperature as high as they can stand it and shut the bathroom door tight even if they otherwise have no reason to close it, to hopefully help the scent fill the bathroom. If that doesn't work for me and I am unable to get that wow olfactory effect from lush bombs, I'll simply stop buying them as this is getting ridiculous. Really, I'm talking straining hard over and over again to get a whiff of something only to then get a better scent out of a 0.78€ product.

I would not recommend to scent junkies, but I would recommend to those who like visual and auditory entertainment from their bath if they don't mind the price.

I love this product! Smells like candy and dreams mixed together. I prefer this more than Karma Kream because it has more moisturizing ingredients and I feel it gets absorbed better.

Shampoo -LUSH -Godiva Solid 2-in-1 Shampoo Bar

Smells like a exotic flower shop. However my hair and scalp felt really irritated and my hair fall was more after using this for a week.


Conditioner -LUSH -Solid Conditioner - Jungle

I love the idea of a solid conditioner and I was recommended Jungle by the store assistant. It is really hard to use even though I did find my hair felt a little more moisturized after that. My hair will always get sticky and tangled with the bar when first applied and then calms down after a few minutes after the product settles. Would be great if it lathered more easily.

I have been a long time user of BIG but it was too strong for every day use, and was looking for a moisturizing shampoo bar I could use on other days. I was recommended by the store representative to use Godiva. It smells so good and I liked how it initially was moisturizing to my hair. However after a few washes I realized my hair was dropping a lot more than usual and my scalp felt irritated so I stopped :( I am currently using the shampoo bar as a soap for random items I need to wash at home.

Ok, I’m a huge fan of Lush products and I must say this is one of my top mask I’ve used, love it! Like others, I’ve had some bad breakouts and after using this mask it’s worked amazingly on my skin, no more clogged pores and less redness overall. Highly recommend this if you haven’t tried it yet!
