Cleansers -LUSH -Aqua Marina Cleansing Roll

This is literally the only cleanser that helps my sensitive skin. I suffer from eczema and have a lot of dryness, redness, and irritation on my face. I discovered this product a couple of years ago and it's been virtually the only cleanser that I use. For the last couple of months I haven't had access to purchase it, so have not used it for a while. And let me tell you, I have had some of the worst flare ups, rashes, and irritation on my face that I've had in a long time. But yesterday I finally was able to get Aqua Marina from Lush and after 1 day I already see a huge difference in my skin. Less redness, some of the red bumps around my eyes and mouth are going away, and my complexion looks improved. I highly, highly recommend this product to anyone who suffers from eczema or has very sensitive skin. Also, it seem to keep my skin clear of breakouts as well!

Cleansers -LUSH -Kalamazoo

Aimed towards bearded men but definitely a good cleanser for the beardless as well!! I use this as an AM facewash, it doesn’t foam but cleans very well. Smells nice & fresh, you don’t need a lot (the small pot lasts ages) and it (very gently) exfoliates thanks to pineapple enzymes. I’m used to strong acids so the exfoliating part doesn’t really do anything for me but it’s probably goodfor people who want to dip their toe in a bit of gentle exfoliation.

Treatments (Face) -LUSH -Full of Grace Serum Bar

on 9/6/2018 8:53:00 AM

Okay- theres very few products that i can hand on heart say have surprised me but this is one. Usually lush products break me out but thought I’d give it a try as I saw a youtube video that seemed convincing.

I use this serum bar every other night, I have a silver tin from Lush to keep it in as it doesn’t come with any. It lives on my bedside table and I literally slather it all over my face before I go to sleep. The consistency is greasy and quite thick but I use loads of it and rub it in very slightly.

The bar itself melts with body heat which is a bit strange to get used to.

Anyway, without fail, I wake up the next morning with plump, baby soft skin that looks really smooth.

Being prone to spots I was really nervous about using this but it is so soothing and gentle on the skin. It just adds hydration and sooths any redness.

You need this serum bar in your life!! I have had one bar at least three months.


Conditioner -LUSH -Veganese Conditioner

Hey there! This is another item which was influenced by this site. I pair it with the soak and float bar. Perfect combination of fragrance, hydration and cleanliness! I'm in my 40's and have some grey hairs. Said hairs are not the same texture as the others. This conditioner leaves my hair so silky! I had ordered the smallest bottle, just in case things didn't work out between us. I will definitely be purchasing the big bottle! I paid $20.95 /8.4 fl oz. Not sure if this is the same as the in store price, as I've never been to a Lush store. However, I do plan on making a trip and incorporating a little Lush shopping! Side note - my curl pattern seems a bit relaxed, but have used this only twice. Will continue use of these products unless my scalp decides to disagree. I am thankful that I am able to afford these, as I have definitely had times in my life where that wouldn't be possible.


Shampoo -LUSH -soak 'n' float shampoo bar

Hello, hello, gorgeous! First, let me say thank you to this site and all who contribute. This is what influenced my purchase. I was desperate to find something to help my poor scalp, which has had seborrheic dermatitis for so many years, off & on. Idk if it is triggered by stress or my autoimmune stuff.. But I get nasty flares, and have since about age 14. I'll be 44 two months. That's a long time! Unfortunately, there is no Lush store nearby, but there are a few within the state. This product was $14.95 & nearly the size of a Moonpie. It worked on first use. I am enamored with its fragrance, which is like that of a headshop. Or perhaps that is in combination with the Veganese conditioner that I pair it. Delicious fragrance!

Treatments (Face) -LUSH -Grease Lightning Spot Cleanser

I adore this product. I was on vacation and breaking out horribly, I was freaking out cause I had nothing to spot treat and my friend let me borrow this. Overnight my breakout reduced (no completely gone, it ain’t a miracle). I looked into it and saw that all the ingredients which was a huge plus. I have naturally dry skin but also horrible acne. This means when I use heavily medicated face items or things with alcohol in them my acne may go away, but peeling skin is left in its place. With this I only have drying in my biggest drying spots (side of my nose, around my mouth), or where I may have applied too much. I just have to remember to do my moisturizer if routine with it (which you should never skip anyways!)


Lip Treatments -LUSH -Honey Trap Lip Balm

on 9/5/2018 9:09:00 AM

I like this lip balm but it’s not as moisturizing as aquaphor. The smell is really nice even though my best friend really hates the smell. So it’s not for everyone. I don’t like that you have to use your fingers to apply it, it’s kinda unhygienic.


Lip Treatments -LUSH -Rose Lollipop Lipbalm

on 9/5/2018 9:06:00 AM

I bought this one because I had the Honey Trap lip balm before. It’s moisturizing and smells really good. But I don’t think it really helps a lot with chapped lips. It gets dry and is difficult to apply and I really hate to use my fingers to apply it especially when I’m outside. I think the honey trap was better. The best for my dry lips is aquaphor.


Shampoo -LUSH -Fairly Traded Honey Shampoo

foto

Love this because it is natural and smells lovely. it is thick in consistency, and i need quite abit of it to lather onto my thick hair. but it leaves my hair feeling very clean and smooth afterwards. no tangles. my hair also dries down to a good volume. will repurchase.


Toners -LUSH -Tea Tree Water Balancing Toner

on 9/4/2018 11:37:00 AM

I needed to find a toner and I heard great things about this one, so I decided to give it a shot. I love it! It doesn't have a strong scent or leave my skin dry/irritated. My skin always feels nice after using it.

I've used it two ways after I've washed my face in the evening: The intended way, where you just spray it onto your face and let it dry (I usually use my hands to pat it in a little), and the way I prefer which is spraying it onto a cotton pad and wiping it all over to get anything left behind by my cleanser (and maybe an extra spray or two after). I also give my face a light spray in the morning before I do my makeup.

I do wish the bottle sprayed it a little more misty though.

This is definitely worth a try.


Cleansers -LUSH -Dark Angels

I've bought this product multiple times and am still currently using it. For the most part, I really like it.

I was having a hard time finding a face wash that I liked, so I looked into LUSH products and saw a lot of great reviews for this one.The smell isn't good or terrible. I use it at night after I've removed my makeup. I take a small scoop in my hand, add a little water, and mix it into a paste. I massage it into my wet face and rinse. It's super exfoliating, so if you don't like harsh scrubs this isn't the product for you. I love scrubs because they just make me feel more clean. This one leaves my skin nice and soft, and it doesn't seem to dry out or irritate my skin.

However, sometimes it just doesn't rinse off all the way. I'll look in the mirror when I think I'm done and I'll have black patches around my mouth and on my cheeks. I can get these off easily with a wet wash cloth though. Most of the time it rinses off and it's not clearly visible, but it leaves behind some sort of residue. If I go over it with a wash cloth there is always some black that comes off, so I guess it never rinses off 100%. I like to spray a cotton pad with LUSH's Tea Tree Water afterwards and wipe my face with that to get more of the residue off. I wash my face again in the morning with a gentle cleanser and it gets off anything left behind. It is also quite messy. I take care not to let it drip or splash onto my clothes when use it (I'm usually in my pajamas at this point anyways). I also always have to wipe down the sink after I use it, but that's not much of a deal breaker for me.

This product is definitely worth a try.


Conditioner -LUSH -Sugar Daddy-O

on 9/3/2018 5:26:00 PM

Bottle-less shampoos and conditioners have been trending, and I was excited to give them a try. I have straight, untreated, Asian hair that reaches down to my bum, so conditioner is a MUST. To be honest, I didn't have high expectations for this conditioner but it turned out to be a happy favorite. I should also mention, that I do not like silicone heavy hair products that give your hair that slippery feeling. Although this one is supposed to be for blonde hair, it was recommended to me because I wanted something that was moisturizing but not heavy.

This product takes a little bit of effort to work into the hair. In comparison to the shampoo bars, this conditioner bar is pretty hard. I take a moment to wet the bar, and to rub it between my hands to get the bar going, then I smooth the bar down the length of my hair a few times, and then I work the product into my hair. You will feel a light coating on your hair if done properly. I leave it in my hair for a few minutes before rinsing it out, and my hair is nicely conditioned afterwards (but not in that slippery silicone-y way). I love that it contains shea butter and argan oil. It leaves my hair nice and soft, and the scent is not as strong as some of the other LUSH products.

For my hair type, this is the perfect amount of conditioning. I am not sure if it would be enough if you had i.e. curly or color treated hair. I would recommend going in for a consultation to choose the right conditioner for you if you are interested. I heard they give samples and have a generous return policy so it's worth a try.

Shampoo -LUSH -Honey I washed my hair solid shampoo bar

on 9/3/2018 5:03:00 PM

So the idea of bottle-less shampoos has been very trendy lately, so when I ran out of shampoo, I was excited to give this a try. For reference, I have straight, untreated, Asian hair that reaches down to my bum. I should also mention, that I do not like silicone heavy hair products that give your hair that slippery feeling. I tend to get dry scalp, so I told the sales associate I needed something that was somewhat moisturizing but not too heavy (since I have straight hair). She recommended this one to me since it is good for sensitive scalps and its made with honey which is a humectant (traps and seals in moisture). It is important to know that this shampoo has SLS so if you have an issue with this ingredient, steer away.

So considering it is an SLS shampoo, I knew it would foam up a lot, which it does. About 3 swipes across my head, and it is enough to lather up my whole head of hair. I always do a double wash, the first wash is to rinse off any hair products/dirt, and the second wash to get my actual hair clean. The shampoo does wash out mostly clean, while still leaving a little bit of something so your hair does not feel parched, but it does not reduce volume. I wash my hair once every 3 days or so, and by the third day, the residue starts to become noticeable and a bit heavy. With continued use, I do notice that I do still get some flaky scalp, so I just switch to my flaky-scalp shampoo. I always use conditioner (because of the length it is a MUST)(I am using the purple conditioner from LUSH) so I can't say if this shampoo is moisturizing enough on its own.

The SA warned me to store it upright, and to keep it away from water when not in use. It is a very soft soap, and melts quite easily. I followed her advice and I have no problems. As with most LUSH products, this shampoo is heavily scented. The scent will fill up the entire room and more. Luckily, once its washed out, the smell does not linger in my hair for too long. I've been using mine almost exclusively for a month and a half now, and it's only been lightly used, so I'm confident this should last me at least another 3 months. I'm satisfied with the results, and I will purchase another one that is more deep-cleaning for the days when this shampoo feels a little too heavy. I would recommend this product. They have many types, they offer samples, and they have a generous return policy (so I've heard).

Gels/Soaps -LUSH -Happy Hippy

I received a sample pot of this shower gel. It does have a gentle citrus smell but also another fragrance, which I can't place. Overall the combined fragrance doesn't really appeal to me. Laureth sulfate is the first ingredient, so anyone who has sensitive should take note.

I normally use Original source lime shower gel, which smells fresh and fruity and costs £1.80 compared to this, which costs £10 - no comparison, I will continue to buy Original Source


Masks -LUSH -1000 Millihelens Jelly Face Mask

on 9/1/2018 10:23:00 AM

I decided on a whim to buy a face mask from here. Sales assistant was helpful, and explained that this product can be stubborn to remove and advised using a face cloth. I found it tricky to apply, you almost need to emulsify it in your hands before applying to your face.
It is a little stubborn to remove too. Did i notice any benefit? My skin felt slightly smoother - which I would expect after any mask - but thats it.
Not one I would buy again
