Conditioner -LUSH -Retread

on 8/29/2018 2:08:00 PM

I wasted money on this products. It is absolutely crap and I wouldn't advice anyone to buy this.

Admittedly, I bought this on a whim ad regretted it ever since. You open it up and the SMELL. It's an unpleasant smell that lingers for hours and it's just, ugh.. No.
But I can smell past a smell (see what I did there hehe) if the actual product is worth it. But like, how does this moisturise your hair? This crap leaves my hair feeling dry and if you use too much, it'll make your hair a big greaseball. Using this product kinda makes me angry, because the claims are so off from what it actually does.

Bath Treatments -LUSH -Creamy Candy Bubble Bar

foto

This is one of my favorite LUSH bubble bars. Creamy Candy is the perfect name for it - the scent is sweet like cotton candy and creamy like vanilla. The super cute pink bar crumbles up easily in the bath and leaves the water pink. Not as bubbly as other LUSH bars but probably because the cocoa butter mitigates some of the effects of the bubbles. That’s OKAY, because it makes the bar moisturizing and gentle on the skin.

The only con - it’s so small for how much you pay for it, especially considering the fact that you only get one bath out of it. I can usually get two or three baths out of a typical bubble bar.

Conditioner -LUSH -Big

My hair is quite fine but I have a lot of it. Sad to say that this conditioner doesn't do anything for my hair. In fact, it makes it look very clumpy, thick and greasy... I'm a massive fan of Lush products and especially their shampoo bars, but they didn't do a good job with this conditioner. The only positive point about it - it smells divine, so I started using it as deodorant and it works well for me :)

This mask is so comfortable, I forgot I had it on and almost peed myself when I looked in the mirror.

Stick -LUSH -Slap Stick Solid Foundation

on 8/28/2018 4:11:00 AM

So Lush recently came out with the Slap Stick Foundation and created a huge hype on social media around this product, before launching it. It was a foundation like no other, because it was not only cruelty-free and vegan but they also made sure that it had no plastic packaging. To top it all off they came out with 40 shades at once. I'm not really someone who gets sucked into hyped products, because I prefer reading reviews before buying anything, but I bought the foundation to review it on my Youtube channel.

When they launched the foundation it was only available online, so I had to guess my shade (which I hate, because I never get the right shade). I didn't want to take any chances and ended up buying 3 slap stick foundations (W6, W9 and W12).

The foundations come in a little matchbox type packaging and the foundation itself is shaped like an egg. The bottom of the foundation is covered in way, so that you can hold it without getting your fingers dirty, which by the way doesn't work, because I always end up with foundation all over my fingers.

Some of the ingredients of this foundation are extra virgin olive oil, jojoba oil and argan oil, which was already a red flag for me, but again ... I bought this for reviewing purposes.

The Lush Slap Stick Foundation feels extremely heavy on my skin. I use full coverage foundations, but this one made my skin feel like it was suffocating. But it's not a deal breaker for me. The coverage is light to medium, but I found it a little hard to blend. The finish of this foundation is dewy and in my opinion you definitely need to powder your face otherwise you will look oily right away.
Now the most important part for me is longevity and this foundation failed miserably. Even though I set the foundation with powder my skin started looking really oily within an hour or two. By the end of the day my face was a hot greasy mess with a cakey looking foundation that had separated on my chin, nose and under eye area.

I absolutely hate this foundation, I don't even mind that it's messy and difficult to work with as long as it makes my skin look good throughout the day. But it doesn't. I love their idea of an ethical and sustainable foundation, but this is a product that I would never buy again or recommend to anyone.

Bath Treatments -LUSH -Butterball Bath Bomb

foto

So I only got this because it was cheap and I needed one more little thing to use up my 50.00 gift card. I have always passed by this thing because it’s little and unassuming - no in your face scents or colors like most of the bath bombs and bubble bars I buy. When I dumped it in the bath and watched it quickly fizz with no fun colors and only a mild, soft scent I was underwhelmed. Then I got IN the bath and I realized why LUSH has sold so many of these things. There are little flecks of cocoa butter throughout that leave just enough oil in the water to make my skin feel calmed, soothed and moisturized. You don’t even need to put on lotion afterward - it’s so great! While not the most exciting bomb it’s the perfect soother after a long day.

Lotions/ Creams -LUSH -Sleepy Hand and Body Lotion

on 8/20/2018 3:44:00 PM

foto

As much as I like Lush, a lot of their products are overhyped and overrated, and this one is no exception. It's been virally marketed on sites like Buzzfeed.
It is a nice softening lotion with a gentle scent (I'm a huge lavender fan) that is fairly calming. So it's a good product.
But it doesn't have particularly great moisturising properties, which makes me tentative about the price, and as an insomniac, it's not really chill enough to help but me to sleep. It's just... nice. Not really a miracle product thing.

Hair Treatments -LUSH -h'suan wen hua conditioner

on 8/20/2018 3:34:00 PM

foto

Great hair treatment! I have very dry, frizzy curls and this made them a lot silkier and less sticky-uppy. I could sort of wear my hair down whenever I used it. I use it the hair mask way (over dry hair for about 20 mins) rather than as a conditioner and I don't feel like it would be quite as effective on wet hair.
The packaging can be kind of hard to manage at times- some of the product oozes under the gap between the lid and the container, so I'm anxious about sticking it in a drawer or something. It's also too expensive for me to buy whenever I run out of a tub. But it's a very good product.

Lipstick -LUSH -Black Rose Lip Tint

on 8/20/2018 8:51:00 AM

I'm not sure if this is available anymore, as I believe it came out with the Halloween 2017 collection. I picked this up in November of last year, but I don't see it on the Lush website anymore. I hope they release it again soon!

I really love this lip tint. It's a stark blackened purple in the tube, but the color ends up being a gorgeous sheer berry that sort of morphs into a unique shade depending on your body temperature. It can be built up to a very bold berry, or be left sheer to provide a bright wash of color to your lips. It doesn't make for a very polished look. On the contrary, it's actually rather diffused, so the result is a very pretty, "lived-in" look that's perfect year-round. I've paired this with simple eyes for a pretty Springtime look, and with darker, smokier eyes for a more Autumnal vibe. It works perfectly no matter what. Since the color ends up looking diffused, I don't find that I want to use a lip liner with this.

I won't say it's hydrating, but it doesn't dry out my lips at all. The formula is a bit stiff, but is reminiscent of Lush's other lip tints. It lasts all day, even through eating and drinking, as it stains the lips. I prefer this for longevity, and a quick oil-based exfoliating scrub is all it takes to really remove it at the end of the day.

The packaging is great. You get 5g of product, which is a lot for a lip color. I know this also comes in a "naked" version, which I don't think I'd like as that could leave a mess. The tube for the packaged version is like a chapstick tube, which makes it small enough to pop in my bag or pocket with ease.

I paid $10 for this, which to me, is a great price for something that performs so well. Again, I really hope they bring this (and all their lip tints) back!


Tinted Moisturizer -LUSH -Colour Supplement

on 8/19/2018 10:54:00 PM

(Product: Light pink)

I got the colour supplement as a replacement for foundation because I was afraid of clogging up my pores and getting breakouts. In addition to evening out skintone, this product also reduces redness and bumps from skin sensitivity. It is easy to remove and does not dissolve in oily skin throughout the course of the day. My skin is also more moisturised after use. I particularly enjoyed that I only need to use a little of it (less than a pea size blob), means it will last me a very long time. The colour also caters to my Asian skin with pink hues. My face does not become very shiny after using it, but I usually pair it with Innisfree no sebum mineral powder for a longer-lasting matte look. This product does not give full coverage, but gives more natural look (smaller pores, reduce redness, less obvious pimples), so if full coverage is what you're looking for, you should definitely skip this.

Just a caution about the packaging when travelling: it leaks if you stow it in your luggage (haven't tried bringing it with me into the cabin).

Very special cleanser with a mildly clarifying action and fantastic calming effect. Nothing works like this absolutely love everything about it even the way it looks. My skin is oily and can imagine that those with a drier skin won’t like it.

Gels/Soaps -LUSH -Sea Vegetable Soap

on 8/16/2018 2:16:00 PM

foto

I asked Lush for a soap that really lathers. They suggested this one. It does not produce lather at all. All it produces is a terrible mess as I attempted to lather up, sea grass on what looked like mud from the seabed splattered all around my bathroom. I think I might never get Lush products again as the last soap did not lather either, and I have soft water.

Conditioner -LUSH -Veganese Conditioner

on 8/15/2018 2:03:00 PM

foto

This is my GO-TO at LUSH regarding hair conditioner. I honestly am not a fan of any of their other options (American Cream, etc). Veganese is a conditioner I can even use on my roots, and I love that. It makes my hair SO shiny and light. Only complaint-- I have to couple it with Organix conditioner on my ends. It is simply not heavy enough to keep my ends untangled or as hydrated as I'd like. I am still a believer and will continue to use, simply because my hair is significantly more bouncy and shiny with it in my regimine.


Gels/Soaps -LUSH -Snow Fairy Shower Gel

on 8/11/2018 11:32:00 PM

foto

LUSH makes good shower gels, but this is one of their worst. First of all, I made the mistake of purchasing this product online without smelling. I read the description on their website which states the product smells like bubblegum and vanilla - two fragrances I love. However, when it arrived, I find it smelled too potent. It reminds me of a bubblegum-flavoured medication that we all took as children. A sickly, nauseating scent. Secondly, there is glitter in the shower gel but it all settles on the bottom of the bottle. I tried shaking it but it won’t budge, which is disappointing for a glitter lover who wants to bathe in it. Lastly, the packaging is so poor. The bottle and cap are cheaply-made and designed. The cap always leaked. Whenever I tried squeezing the gel out, it would start leaking from the sides. Eventually, the cap broke off. I had to pour the shower gel into a new bottle. The good thing about this product is that it is concentrated so a little goes a long way unlike the watered-down body washes from the drugstore. It isn’t drying. It works well with its body conditioner, which I also purchased. I bought the largest bottle available and after months, it’s still kicking. I will buy a LUSH shower gel again, just not this fragrance.
