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

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.


Hair Treatments -LUSH -Superbalm Super Scalp Treatment

Miracle product, works so well for dandruff and acne.
First thing though, this stuff to me smells really awful like chamomile tea but pungent and musty. But it works wonders for me. I bought it when I was experiencing dandruff and itchy scalp during the winter. Its super greasy, I learned to apply just a tiny amount only to the actual scalp to keep flakes at bay and it helped the itching go away too.
When I was breaking out after a mask that had cornflour in it (causing yeast to get out-of-whack) and nothing else was working, I tried this. I needed a thick balm to put over the zinc serum to calm my face down and this also contains salicylic acid, which treated the breakout fast (it's been 3 days and it's almost gone whereas it was so bad makeup couldn't cover it before). It also took the itchiness away almost immediately. If regular anti-bacterial spot treatments (benzoil peroxide etc) aren't working I'd try this one.

I only used this once last night so this review is a first impression, I might update this in a few weeks if my feelings change on the product. I usually have dry/sensitive skin but lately its been more oily around my T zone and forehead and ive been getting breakouts now for awhile which is unusual for me although my skin is still quite sensitive and dry around my cheeks.

Product review --
This really gave my skin a good hard scrub which it needed without being abrasive or causing any irritation or redness. I noticed as soon as I washed it off my pores were much clearer and my skin was squeaky clean. I steam my face at home trying to clear blackheads from pores and ive used different scrubs and masks but nothing has worked as well as this. My skin was also soft after using it, it didnt dry me out which most face scrubs do. Theres also a lot of product in the tub and only a small bit is needed.
For under a tenner I think this is definitely worth it and I will buy it again.

I was intoroduced to this product when I made a LUSH order and I received this as a sample in my package. I just fell in love with the fragrance first and the thick texture. This is the best moisturizer for my hands- hands down. I really works for me and I will purchase full size pot as summer is over and I can feel it on my hands.

Gels/Soaps -LUSH -Rub rub rub showergel

I found this product a bit disappointing.

i expected a more vigorous exfoliate. its alright if you use a hand exfoliator or a something to assist with scrubbing, works alright but i don't know if i will be repurchasing, Its cheaper than the Ocean Salt and you get more product which makes this a better buy.

I also am one of the unlucky ones with Ocean Salt, it burns my skin and i had a patchy rash after using, if you have sensitive skin, and you are trying to figure out which one would be best for you, go for the Rub rub rub. If you want something that's moisturizing, go for Buffy that bar is the shit i love it! best of both worlds, exfoliates and it moisturizes you too, you could get away with not moisturizing after a shower.

Bath Treatments -LUSH -You've Been Mangoed bath melt

Hmm,

I didn't like it, the lime made it smell too Sterile like it was a cleaning house product for me.

It was somewhat moisturizing but i didn't think much of it.

the Cauldron bath melt is way better, you can use it as a scrub and its super milky and moisturizing which is what im assuming you want if you are buying the mango.

Lotions/ Creams -LUSH -Handy gurugu

Bought this on a complete whim when visiting my local store to repurchase my facial moisturiser.

For as long as I can remember I have had incredibly dry hands all year round which get particularly bad during late autumn/winter, at which point they crack and bleed (not pleasant), so I'm always on the lookout for a really good hand cream. I've tried loads in the past but never found anything that really works - they usually just seems to settle in the cracks and feel really greasy, and I'm back to square one every time I have to wash my hands.

THIS however, has become my saviour - my hands actually look human (rather than reptilian) for once!! I've had this for a couple of months now and I've been using it most days and my hands feel so silky soft. I noticed a difference immediately after the first use but was sceptical about how it would hold up with hand-washing, and just facing the elements but I can honestly say my hands have never looked or felt better.

Now admittedly I can't vouch for how well it performs in the winter months when my hands are at their worst, but we'll soon see how it fares. I've seen some other reviews that have mentioned this product feeling quite thick/greasy, and I can definitely see how it could be on hands that are already in decent condition, but with the state that my hands were in, I've found it sinks in quite quickly and still feels moisturising for hours afterwards. As for the smell, I really like it - it is quite an earthy scent and does linger for a while but personally I think it's quite pleasant - think that iconic Play Doh smell but a lil more medicinal.

All in all I'd 100% recommend to anyone with dry hands and can safely say I will be repurchasing this time and time again.

Gels/Soaps -LUSH -Ro's argan

on 9/7/2017 11:38:00 PM

This lush bar soap contains:argan oil,glycerine,granulated sugar,lemon oil,egyptian geranium oil,rose absolute,rose oil,red and yellow rose petals. The texture of the soap is like a jelly bar, more soft then a regular bar. It is creamier then the others also. It lathers well,it smells like ro's argan body conditioner. It is also more expensive then the other soaps bars. But it smells divine and got more luxury ingredients. Love it!


Treatments (Eye) -LUSH -Enchanted Eye Cream

on 9/7/2017 1:00:00 AM

Don't love it. Don't hate it. I don't use this as a eye cream because the formula is too simple and does not satisfy my needs. I use this one as a general face moisturizer. As a face moisturizer, this one is very reasonably priced (comparing to most of my other higher end products), feels light enough to use in the morning (it will leave a healthy sheen on the skin but nothing too greasy looking, definitely not matte or oil controlling though), and hydrating enough to use in the night, behaves well on top of other skin care products (i.e. serums, beauty oils, acne gels etc.), which is a huge plus.

It has a milky lotion like texture, a bit runny, but not exactly fluid. It has a very, very subtle scent (that I don't like) that will vanish in 3 min max. It doesn't absorb as readily as I'm used to with the higher end products, but it will absorb, in time - this is actually why I don't like to use this in the mornings, I don't have the time to wait for it to be absorbed completely before I put on my makeup. I use 1~2 pumps on my entire face and neck. This also doesn't last as long as the other Lush face creams. This is not a "a little goes a long way product", well, not for me, but then, I'm not using it as a eye cream, I imagin this will last literal ages as eye cream.

I would recommend this to people with sensitive skin or of younger age groups, like, under 25, because this really is just a nice and simple moisturizer. Nothing special to it, does nothing other than moisturize your skin. It's not even something like a hydration boost. Just, very, very basic moisturizing. I keep repurchasing this one for the sole reason that this is simple and does not irritate my skin at all. Do not have irrational hope for what it will do. It probably won't do it. Like, just read the ingredient list. Skin care is not magic.

Overall, very nice face moisturizer, well priced, hydrating and gentle, light yet at the same time not readily absorbed (which is so weird), perfect when your skin is freaking out and you don't want to further iritate it, not ideal if you are counting on it to perform miracles like brightening, tightening or any kind of antiaging in general. This is a very simple moisturizer, and I will keep repurchasing this for this reason. I don't know and I don't understand how people see the results they see with this product. I'm guessing placebo. Don't get your hope up and you won't be disappointed.

Masks -LUSH -Mask of Magnaminty

If you have problematic skin, if you've got acne, cystic acne like me, and it's an ongoing war each morning fighting off the attack, get this product. I bought this with dark angels, and got a sample of skin drink (my skin is incredibly dry from all the harsh acne high end products I've been trying. It hasn't even been three days since I got these items and I'm already seeing results. The grease lightening is also amazing at fighting pimples, within a few hours a sore pimple goes down dramatically. I hope you all have as much luck with these products as I am having. Try them you won't regret it

Moisturizers -LUSH -Skin Drink

I got a sample of this the other day and I'm in love with it! I've been on the hunt for a good while for a product worth buying. I've tried REN calm moisturizer, which smells nice but i find it not hyratrating enough. I've tried Darphin, which I did really like but I had a suspicion it was breaking me out. I have cystic acne and it's hard to find anything that helps, not contributes. I'm going to buy this when I have a chance. Also, shoutout to all LUSH products. I've been trying to clear my worst hormonal breakout I've had in years, it's been terrible the last few months, spent ALOT of money and gotten tonnes of samples on so many products. It's funny how when you go back to basics on all natural products your skin thanks you.

I love this stuff. I do have really diva-like skin which is dry and sensitive with a tendency towards hormonelle acne. This is a great everyday moisturizer.
