Fragrances -LUSH -Rose Jam

No no no no no.

Rose Jam is a fantastic scent in the bath and shower forms. But as a fragrance, Lush really screwed things up. They did something to the formula that makes this fragrance come across smelling more like a scented candle than the Rose Jam we all know and love. It's also a strong scent...obnoxiously strong, bordering on horrendous. It's one of the few things that I regret purchasing from Lush. I won't even give it away and subject someone else to this--it's heading straight for the trash bin.

If you're thinking about buying this, I STRONGLY recommend you smell it in person before spending a dime on it, because if you're expecting it to smell just like the yummy shower gel, you're going to be very disappointed.

Toners -LUSH -Eau Roma Water

This is just an okay toner. It has a mild floral scent and the spray bottle is fine. I don't find this does that much for my skin, it doesn't seem to moisturize much at all or really do anything at all. Leaves my skin rather dry after application compared to Mario Badescu Facial Spray. Would not repurchase.


Gels/Soaps -LUSH -Dirty Springwash Shower gel

on 4/20/2018 11:46:00 AM

Bought this while on a Lush trip with my young son (who loves bath bombs). Thank goodness we only got a sample size; the one we took home smelled somewhat less appealing than the tester bottle. Using it in the shower was akin to slathering oneself in the contents of ten Tide Pods, both in terms of smell (GAH!) and the drying after-effects (full of sodium lauryth sulphate). No, no, and just, no.


Scrubs -LUSH -Ocean Salt Face & Body Scrub

on 4/18/2018 11:11:00 PM

This is great for exfoliating feet but I would never use this on my face. The salt is too coarse and there are some irritating plant oils in this that make it unsuitable for facial skin. I stopped buying it because it was too expensive, I got tired of stirring it, and the jar is messy.

Moisturizers -LUSH -Skin Drink

I have fairly normal skin when I’m at home, which is a high humidity part of the US. When I lived in Alaska my skin could not handle the dryness. Think cracked skin so bad my forehead bled. I had my mother go to Lush and inquire about a heavy duty moisturizer. This was recommended and it was a skin saver! I didn’t care for the smell of it much, but my face returned to its usual normalcy in just a few days of using it. However, once I got back home 8 months later, it was far too heavy to use in Florida, land of 110% humidity. Overall, I I recommend it for dry skin in dry areas.

Scrubs -LUSH -Ocean Salt Face & Body Scrub

I have used this product for 2 years now and I have loved it from the start! I love the coarseness from the salt and it really tackles my problem T zone. It makes my skin brighter and more manageable, I used it before my wedding to help give me that "bridal glow" and it definitely delivered! The larger container is of better value as you can get more uses out of it for a cheaper price in the long run. I have recommended this product to all of my friends who can be hard on their skin, they have loved it as well! Love this product!

Moisturizers -LUSH -Celestial

I give this about a 3.5 it is a very nice moisturizer. It leaves my face very soft. Doesn't break me out but I can't use this during the day as it's way too rich for my combo skin and oily t zone. Great for nighttime. I love the very light almost mild vanilla scent this has as well. Not sure I would repurchase as it might be a bit much for my skin and I prefer avene for nights but this is an excellent choice for drier skin.


Gels/Soaps -LUSH -Honey I Washed the Kids soap

foto

Oh my GOSH, this is the best thing I have ever smelled. I got stuck on the HIWTK scent after I purchased my first shampoo bar, Honey I Washed My Hair. The scent is so delicious and soothing - smells like honey, vanilla caramel, brown sugar and toffee. This soap is kind of a splurge but I had to treat myself to one because I was honestly using the shampoo bar on my body which is not the cheapest way to go. HIWTK soap is 30 something bucks a pound so my little chunk of soap that looks like it’ll last maybe a month was almost 12 bucks. Again, I love the scent and can’t stop reaching my forearm up to my nose to smell myself after my bath - but as other reviewers have mentioned, not a fan of the honey comb top. It looks adorable but feels really scratchy on the skin. Can’t wait till it falls off! The other issue is the soap does not foam up as much as I would like. I feel like I have to really work (rub and wet, rub and wet) to get a lather (this is where the shampoo bar has an advantage; it lathers like a champ!). I wish to heck they had a body wash that actually had the HIWTK scent - It’s Raining Men shower gel is supposed to be like this but the scent is just OFF. These drawbacks aside I am so obsessed with the soap I would buy it again.

Bath Treatments -LUSH -Ro's Argan Body Conditioner

on 4/14/2018 1:40:00 AM

a thick, creamy lotion that you apply to wet skin in the shower and then rinse off with warm water. this leaves a residue on your skin that takes a while to soak in once your skin is dry. I use this at night at the end of my showers and it leaves my skin super soft. granted with the residue it leaves I wouldn't use this in the morning as slipping jeans on can be a bit difficult and in general uncomfortable. I put a lush conditioner on my hair, rinse my hands off, turn off the shower, apply this to my whole body, wait a few minutes and then proceed to rinse everything off at once. the key is to only rinse this off with water and not very thoroughly. I'd imagine using body wash or soap to get this off would defeat the whole purpose. I love this as it saves me time so I can focus more on my skincare before bed instead of spending a while applying lotion to my whole body. might I add the scent is really warm, almost like peanut butter. nothing like rose as the name would suggest but none the less pleasing as I enjoy deeper notes. expensive for $35 a tub but so worth it imo.

Shampoo -LUSH -BIG

One of LUSH's best products, which I've purchased many times over the years. Although there are other clarifying shampoos on the market, this one is unique in the sensory experience that it offers: scooping and massaging salt into your hair while the gorgeous, unique fragrance surrounds you. It is quite stripping so I only use this once a week, and I would avoid if your hair is coloured. Other than that it's one to try!

Shampoo -LUSH -Jersey Bounce

on 4/12/2018 4:47:00 PM

I have short, thick, straight hair. my scalp is oily while the actual body of my hair is dry from color processing. i never thought a volumizing shampoo could be so moisturizing and gentle. this gives my hair body and texture without leaving me frizzy and crisp. the sea salt doesn't dry out my hair. in fact it's very balancing for my scalp oil. never thought I would ever use anything other than their shampoo bars much less a shampoo that comes in a pot but I'm sold!


Conditioner -LUSH -Veganese Conditioner

on 4/12/2018 12:10:00 PM

love this! after one use I'm sold. doesn't have the slip of other conditioners but doesn't weigh the hair down with that slip either. my short hair is still incredibly soft which is so nice since my scalp is oily but the body of my hair is dry. the scent is super nice, so fresh. pair this with the jersey bounce shampoo and I get the cleanest but softest hair I've ever had. highly recommend.

Great for helping heal blemished skin. A bit drying.

I got so much small bumps around my cheeks after using this product, that I have never got before. It feels fresh and made my face feel smooth tho. If you don´t have acne-prone skin this will probably be a good product. Right now I'm using this to spray in my hair to make it feel more fresh and to smell good.

Hair Treatments -LUSH -Superbalm Super Scalp Treatment

This is a very sad review for me to write. I wanted this to work so badly. Unfortunately, it didn’t do it for me like I hoped it would.

I have been having issues with my scalp and hair for a couple of years now. After one day of no shampooing, my scalp gets intensely itchy (occasionally to the point of pain) and flaky. I have awful dandruff. But at the same time my roots get super oily. The ends of my hair are extremely dry. So obviously I have a pretty unhealthy scalp. I explained this to the very kind employee at lush. He recommended this and it sounded like the answer to my prayers.

Upon my first use, I was pleased with the texture - a little really goes a long way. It smells like chamomile tea. When I put it in my scalp it tingled. I had no issues washing it out. My scalp was still itchy and flaky two days later, but I figured it would take a couple of tries for it to really start working. Fast forward about a month - I’d been using it just about twice a week, and there were not even any short term changes in my scalp, let alone long term. I went from that to maybe once a week, and at this point it’s sitting in my drawer and I haven’t touched it in maybe two months. I will probably try to use it again but this product didn’t even help me on the days I had used it. I’m sure superbalm works great for many people so I am pretty disappointed it didn’t for me.
