Skincare - Body -LUSH -Shimmy Shimmy Massage Bar

foto

There are a few LUSH products that I purchase regularly -shampoo bars, Buffy, King of Skin, and this. Well, now this. They used to have a similar product (glitter bug maybe?) that was more emollient and had different glitter in it. I loved that one, and this is an OK runner up.

I use this on bare legs when wearing skirts, and sometimes on my collar bone. I always forget to put something on my legs and the thought of launching that process once I’m dressed and almost out the door is exhausting.

I keep this by the door so on my way out I can just grab it, rub it on and go. It doesn’t transfer (its pretty solid) or get all over my hands so it’s really perfect for this. It provides a nice glittery sheen.

Bath Treatments -LUSH -Butterball Bath Bomb

My absolute favourite of all Lush’s bath bombs. Skin always feels great after using: soft, smooth and sweetly scented. I’ve tried other bath bombs but none of them are as good as this one. I do think they’re a tad pricey given their size, but - as an occasional indulgence - worth it.

Masks -LUSH -Cup O' Coffee

My skin is still burning half an hour later! I got a sample of his mask, washed my face and let it sit on for about 8 minutes. Washed.... and that's when I noticed the burning sensation. I gently washed. The coffee scrub itself is not smooth. It is huge and very jagged. My skin feels like it has hundreds of needle points in it! And after I dried my skin? My face is bright red! And it still stings half an hour later! As for the smell? It smells like musty Tobacco. Maybe my skin is too sensitive for this, but I ended up throwing out the rest of the sample and hope my skin calms down soon!!


Moisturizers -LUSH -Celestial

This is great for my sensitive normal-dry skin. Acne-prone . My skin was v messed up from Glamglow masks ans stress and very bad (pimples, very irritated). I bought several rather expensive moisturizers for sensitive skin all of which exacerbated the issue. This lush celestial within 2 weeks completely calmed down my skin and as someone below noted it cleared up the clogged 'comedones' etc. My skin is almost completely clear now and not at all irritated now. Before (for months) I could feel a rash/burning feeling if I just put on a mild cream or sunscreen, now it feels soothed and no irritation to the point I can start wearing foundation again! V happy and I mixed a small pot of it (separated for every day use) with my rosehip oil/sandalwood/geranium/frankincense/myrrh blend for drier areas. It has only been 2 weeks to fix a problem I had for months!

Conditioner -LUSH -The Plumps Solid Conditioner

foto

I bought this for travelling because my normal shampoo/conditioners were always spilling. It smells nice, but has no lather so you have to rub it directly on your hair. I can tell it actually does moisturize because the Honey I washed My Hair bar gives me that stripped feeling and this makes my hair feel normal again. As far as volume this hasn't affected my hair at all. I'd say this isn't very special, just a basic conditioner.


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

foto

I got this as for travelling so I would eliminate shampoo spillage. I'd say it worked as a run of the mill shampoo, it did the job of cleaning my hair but I don't find it super special. It lathers nicely, smells GREAT but leaves your hair with that stripped feeling so conditioner is a must and I find it fades my hair color faster than most shampoos. Since I mainly bought this for as a travel alternative I would buy it again if it ran out.


Moisturizers -LUSH -Vanishing Cream

Nice moisturiser for oily skin. Smells of lavender - takes a while to sink in but doesn’t leave any shine. Skin feels nourished afterwards. The packaging isn’t great though - pump would be better. And it is a bit pricey for what it is. But I’d buy it again (and decant into a Muji pump container).

Conditioner -LUSH -R&B Revive & Balance Hair Moisturizer

on 10/1/2017 6:47:00 AM

foto

This falls under expensive but I'm glad I asked a friend to buy it for me in the UK as it's twice as expensive here in Singapore. I've only read about it so it was was doubly lucky.
My hair was so dry and frizzy due to the humidity here and it really helped to control frizz and restore it to an agreeable condition. I won't say it made my hair the envy of the community but it stopped being the bane of my existence.
Lightly swab, rub between your palms and apply to damp hair. I found the jasmine scent to be overwhelming at first but now I find it comforting and it does vanish after 15 minutes or so.

Masks -LUSH -FOMO

I really like this product and I think it's good value for money as a little goes a long way. I think you could get 10 - 12 masks out of it at a push. In the past LUSH fresh face masks haven't agreed with my sensitive skin but the consistency of this is very gentle. It smells delicious too!

Cleansers -LUSH -Aqua Marina Cleansing Roll

on 9/28/2017 4:55:00 AM

I don't really know what to say about this product's performance. I have normal skin with no acne, never had acne, I just ocasionally get a few small break-outs on my chin/around my mouth, so I don't think I could have noticed a big difference. I definitely enjoyed using this cleanser, knowig that it's made from natural ingredients. I also absolutely loved the smell! It's so natural and it really reminds me of the sea. It's definitely not a smell that everyone would enjoy and sometimes it was a bit overpowering, but I loved it nonetheless. I can say my skin looked better after washing my face with it, it seemed to tighten my pores and give it an overall brighter apearence and it definitely felt really clean without feeling stripped. What I don't really like about this is that you get quite little product for the price. I bought the 100g jar and it lasted me for a bit over 3 weeks of using it 2 times a day, every day. It also was a bit annoying when I would accidentaly add a bit too much water and it became too liquidy for it to seem effective. You only need to add a couple of drop of water for a pea-sized amount of product, though you need to scoop up a little more than that for the cleanser to lather well and be enough to wash your entire face. I think I will repurchase it when I have the chance (I don't have Lush in my country), but only for the smell and because it's natural, I don't really need a special cleanser thanks to my skin not having big problems.

Lotions/ Creams -LUSH -Karma Kream

on 9/26/2017 5:00:00 PM

I give Karma 5 but I would not buy it again. It is an excellent cream in terms of moisturizing but make sure you get that little sample pottie before committing to a full jar. I was sure I wanted to love Karma and I almost bought it without wearing it first like I did with Symphaty for the skin. But Luckily while I bought Symphaty I asked a smaple of Karma Kream first. I applied on from my sample pottie and after only a couple of minutes, I knew we were not ment to be. I love the smell of insence but I can not walk around with it all day. It is just too much of the good and I just get nauseous. I am not surprised as I have NEVER in my life been able to commit on any fragrance. If I buy a bottle of perfume, I spray it twice and Im already sick of the smell, no matter how much I had fell in love with it at the first place. I am the kind of woman who almost never hit the pan with anything I own. I dont have signature this and signature that. Karma Kream has too much personality for me, just like if youre wearing a fragrance. When you wear it you can not forget it. But it does do its job very well, which is to moisturize skin, which not all the body lotions really do.

Masks -LUSH -Mask of Magnaminty

This is probably the only item from lush that I would definitely repurchase. In fact, it has become a vital staple in my skin care routine. It's a very rich, soothing mask that leaves my skin feeling tingly-clean, soft and hydrated. It has helped tremendously through the summer, as I've been troubled with much oiler skin since my recent move to a very hot and humid State. It has a lovely cooling effect while wearing it and smells yummy too! I just love it!

Cleansers -LUSH -Let the Good Times Roll

Best product ever! Cleared up my severe cystic for the first time since I was 13. I've used every prescription product made, including Accutane. It's expensive, but worth it!


Body Scrubs -LUSH -Buffy the Backside Slayer

on 9/24/2017 9:28:00 AM

well i hate to be a dissenter on this one. i got this in a gift set and so badly wanted to like it, but, not so much...
the pros: it smells amazing. it has a buttery, warm scent with the Lush hippie esque element, which i just so happen to love.
it is moisturizing and leaves my skin soft.

cons: SO scratchy. borderline painful. i have sensitive skin and im pale, and this left my skin red and irritated. a body scrub should be a pleasant experience, not make you wince.
the moisture aspect is a double edged sword, its softening but it leaves a film that attaches itself to your towels and clothes as well. i also felt i still needed lotion after, which defeats the purpose.
overall, i enjoy Lush products, but this one is just no bueno. they have far better, less painful scrubs.

Cleansers -LUSH -Angels on Bare Skin

foto

For skin type reference, I have very dry, acne-prone skin, and I often get eczema around my mouth and on the sides of my nose. I need to exfoliate with an AHA twice a week, otherwise the dry flakes build up on my face and look chunky. I don't have major issues with pores or sensitivity, although my eczema can get a little irritated if I use products with lots of fragrance.

It's rare to find a product that helps to clear acne without being drying, but this cleanser has done it! I was initially worried that it would dry my skin out, but it hasn't done that at all. My face still needs a rich moisturiser, but it doesn't leave me with that horrible stretched and tight feeling that drying cleansers do. It has helped me enormously with my acne and built-up skin flakes. The ground almonds gently exfoliate the dead skin away and leave my face feeling very soft and smooth, and my acne has cleared up.

This product has a bit of a learning curve at first, but once you get the hang of it it is easy to pinch off the right size of product and add the right amount of water. It's easy to wash off, either in the shower or with a facecloth, and so long as you don't splash water everywhere, it doesn't get your sink messy.

I do not have sensitive skin so cannot comment on potential irritants, but this product does not irritate my eczema around my mouth.

I really like this cleanser and am surprised that it works so well considering how simple the formula is. I will definitely repurchase it when I use it up.
