Love this!!! Au natural, tastes yummy like some kind of healthy cola. Makes my teeth feel cleaner than any other toothpaste I've tried, and bonus... it whitens like CRAZY! I don't know what took me so long to try it. <3 I actually look foward to brushing my teeth now since using this stuff.


Lip Treatments -LUSH -Bubblegum Lip Scrub

This honestly does nothing for my lips. It doesn't take my dry skin off. It's too shimmery and the shimmer lasts for a long time. I try to wash it off and it just doesn't come off so I just let it come off on it's own. It's annoying though because I hate having glitter on my face. I don't like the taste of it. The colour of the scrub and the hearts in it is cute but that's about it.


Cleansers -LUSH -Angels on Bare Skin

I've used up so many tubs of this and i still love it. I find that it really helps to clear up irritation breakouts and calm the skin. Just so you know, i have oily acne-prone skin that is pretty reactive. I recently used some products from The Ordinary and something didn't agree with my skin. I broke out pretty bad, especially around the cheeks and jaws. I bought a drugstore cleanser to help calm my skin but it only aggravated things.

Then i remembered Lush and my previous great results from AOBS and decided to give it another go. After 2 weeks of use, the breakout has cleared up, my skin is smoother and more even-toned.
Folks, granted that some of you may indeed be allergic to something in it, i would say that if you don't like it otherwise, it could be more of a method thing. I only use AOBS in the mornings when i don't have makeup on. I can't imagine using it on a fully made-up face. It doesn't even make sense. I normally use an oil-based remover on my makeup before using my regular cleanser anyway.

I actually look forward to using this every morning. It smells divine. Can't understand the people who claim that it reeks. I pinch off a piece the size of a large pea. If you use it once a day and can't finish it in 3 months, i would say that you are using too little.
Anyway, always use dry hands when pinching some off from the tub and store it in a cool dry place...any moisture you allow into the pot will encourage growth of mold. i then mush it up in my palm with only about 2-3 drops of water to form a creamy paste. then i apply it to dry skin...yes dry...i find that if my skin is already wet, it doesn't stick and falls off, making a mess. Then as i massage it in, i run my hand quickly through the water till its slightly wet and then continue to massage. This way, your skin is not too wet or too dry that its difficult to rub it in. Really take the time to massage it in gently, adding little bits of water when it starts to get dry. Then wash off very thoroughly.

I swear it leaves my skin smoother, looking brighter...almost air-brushed and all without any tightness or discomfort. I then follow through with a toner and my moisturizer. I don't find it very oily or that it leaves behind any oily residue..Just fresh, bright skin. And this is coming from someone with superrr oily skin.

I will definitely keep repurchasing this. Its like having a spa treatment every morning. I really enjoy using this. Its very therapeutic.

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

foto

I bought this bar to try something different, which set me back $16.50. Was offered a tin for it but wasn't really keen on having to spend any extra. It smelled good and was fun to lather in, but when I tried to wash it out. my hair was super tangly and felt rubbery and I ended up pulling a bunch of my hair out with it. Using this bar my hair feels really soft the first day (but takes longer to style), but after that the ends get really dried out and it looks dull.

I wanted to like this but it was a rip off. The bar only lasted me about 5 washes before it crumbled into nothing. I had it sitting with my soap bar which was fine, but for some reason this shampoo bar wasn't so maybe it would have been better in a tin but who knows. And although it does smell good, the scent never stayed in my hair when most shampoos usually would a little better.

Wouldn't really recommend this to anyone, I think there are so many other products out there which are kinder to your hair, cheaper, and just more efficient.

Shampoo -LUSH -Solid Shampoos - all varieties

Shampoo bar is such a great idea. I came across lush with the intention to reduce my plastic usage. Took me a while to 'master' the perfect way to use it in the shower.
I find that instead of running the bar directly on your scalp/hair, by rubbing and wetting one side of the bar on my palm and running the soapy fingers through my hair, the bar lasts much longer. And you only need to dry one side of the bar when you store it, if you know what i mean.

The only downside is that lush products are so costly in Singapore! Its $25 each!
I bought 2 more in different scent to stock up when I visited italy where they sell it for £8. Love it, and will continue using this as long as they still makes it.

Bronzers -LUSH -Sesame Suntan Lotion

on 7/7/2018 10:19:00 AM

This leaves my skin feeling moisturised and knowing I am protected from the sun is a bonus. OK, the smell..... you end up smelling like a Snickers Bar for about 20 minutes after you have applied it but it does fade. I do agree with the other reveiws though, the smell is very strong and i can see how it would put people off. Definitely try and test the product before you invest as the smell maybe too much. All in all, I would buy this again as I can cope with the smell and it does what its meant to (stop.me from burning in the sun!). It's vegan and has no nasties in it, which is why i bought it.


Skincare - Face -LUSH -Tea Tree Steam Tab

on 7/6/2018 1:40:00 AM

I have mature oily combination skin that needs a good deep facial cleansing with extractions at the very least twice a year to have a clear complexion. In Japan, extractions are unheard of, so my European pores need a trip home once a year to get the proper cleansing they need. Last year I couldn`t go home because of surgery and I`ve also come off my hormonal therapy, so my skin feels more congested than usual with breakouts and white heads I haven`t experienced in years. I bought a home electric steamer and adding these tabs (I also use the lavender ones, and love those as well) once a month, helps to clear my pores and alleviate breakouts. Overall, these are just as effective as an expensive facial in Japan, but a lot friendlier on the pocket. I still need a proper European facial with extractions, but these little tabs help my skin in between my trips home.

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

on 6/28/2018 6:19:00 AM

This smelled so soothing, imo, I think I`ve stayed in the bath longer than usual just to enjoy that aroma of mango and lemongrass. Someone mentioned that it smelled like housecleaner to them, and I get it, I can totally see how someone would interpret the fragrance that way. These things are subjective, but to me, this smelled like straight up lemongrass. And mango. With a hint of bergamot. Maybe because I`ve been living in Asia for so long, and the house cleaners here don`t stink to high heaven or have a different scent palate than your average North American cleaner. In any case, this bath oil is heavy duty slick, so be careful not to slip into the tub. My skin was coated and soaked it in like a sponge, and there was hardly any need for body lotion when I got out. This is only the second oil from LUSH I`ve tried, but I have to say, I love these even more than their bath bombs and I can`t wait to try them all.

Gels/Soaps -LUSH -Rose Jam Shower Gel

on 6/24/2018 7:43:00 AM

I love this stuff and LUSH shower gels in general (just pick your scent and enjoy it!)

I used to have love/hate relationship with shower gels in general. Most of them would make my already dry skin even drier. Now add freshly epilated skin to that - you get a disaster! I would have little bumps on my arms, flaky skin and ingrown hairs.

I use an exfoliating shower glove and since I switched to LUSH, my skin problems literally vanished! Even if I don't have time for body lotion in the morning, this shower gel alone keeps my skin super soft and happy. No more bumps or other problems! Guys, don't even sleep on it.

I talk more about this and other skin saviours in a separate review here for those of you interested (http://www.partyparrotblog.com/single-post/2018/06/23/NewSummerBeautyFavourites). Hope it helps!


Shampoo -LUSH -Montalbano Shampoo Bar

on 6/23/2018 10:37:00 PM

I bought this shampoo bar DESPITE reading all the bad reviews on here because it smells so good and looked so cool in the store, and I am trying to be more environmentally friendly. I also thought the natural ingredients would help my hair. This is one of the worst shampoos I've ever tried! The top of my hair was super greasy, almost felt like it wasn't completely dried. However, the bottom of my hair was so dry and the texture felt absolutely disgusting. I used it twice and had to stop after the second time because I couldn't even flip my hair, because the top was so greasy. This is the first shampoo bar I've tried, so I don't know a good alternative but if you're in the market for one make sure to stay as far away from this one as possible!

Eyeliner -LUSH -Lush Independent black eyeliner

on 6/21/2018 11:53:00 AM

I DO like the fact that this eyeliner has no odor. I was afraid it may have a slight odor which many liquid eyeliners do have. Many of the drug store eyeliner have a slight odor which I can't explain what it smells like ,but it makes my eyes water. So I generally test it on my hands before applying it to my eyes. This does rub off easily so I wouldn't recommend it for a date night. If he leans in for a kiss the makeup will probably rub off.
