Cleansers -LUSH -Fresh Farmacy Cleanser Bar

I found this cleanser way too drying for me. My skin just felt tight and like it had a film on it after using this. I didn’t break out though but I did have to stop using this. Way too drying. Would not purchase.

Masks -LUSH -Bunny Moon Jelly Face Mask

I have been using this product for ~2 weeks now, every evening after my normal skincare routine. It has the consistency of jell-o, and becomes a soft creamy texture when mushed between the hands. I cut my jelly up into cubes with a knife for easy/cleaner access (rather than pinching off a piece and getting it under my nails and such), then rub the little cube on my cheeks & forehead until it takes on that creamy consistency.

- I gave this product a 4/5 for rating because although it soothes my skin, I don't necessarily feel that it overly hydrates it or anything.
- I gave this product 5/5 for price because you get a lot of bang for your buck (based off my use, that's approximately 1 mask for 1 dollar each time which is fanastic... product is $15 after tax canadian)
- I gave this product a 4/5 for packaging because it's just the basic lush tub, nothing overly special for a face mask

Pros
- smells absolutely delightful (roses for SURE)
- feels so good on the skin
- really fun to use
- leaves my skin feeling soft af afterwards
- soothes a little bit of redness

Cons
- absolute PAIN in the ass to wash off (because it contains algae, when it dries, it just sticks to your face. I have used a warm wash cloth to wash it off before but I like to avoid rubbing my skin roughly as much as possible)

I don't have much bad to say about this product because I really do like it, and it doesn't make my dry/sensitive skin worse whatsoever. It's a nice treat at the end of the day when I'm unwinding.

Lip Treatments -LUSH -Bubblegum Lip Scrub

Love, Love, Love this Lush lip SCRUB. The bubble gum smell makes me feel like a teenager again.
I feel so much happier when I apply it on my lips. In comparison to my other favorite lip SCRUB by Fresh cosmetics this will hold second place. LUSH scrubs are big in size to me, there not small, Fresh cosmetics scrubs are finer and smaller in size which does not hurt my lips. I tend to scrub really hard .Thats the only reason why it holds second place to Fresh cosmetics.


Masks -LUSH -1000 Millihelens Jelly Face Mask

overall nice product, not sure it actually did much for my skin.
it smells incredible, kind of like a mix of herbal tea and cucumbers? its scent is very fresh and just puts a smile on my face whenever i use it.
its a fun consistency, because the thing is with this mask since its jelly, you have to take a bit out of the pot and then rub it in your hands for a few minutes before you can apply, personally i found this step to be really fun and therapeutic. once you make the paste it applies fairly easily to the skin (although i noticed once it starts to dry on your skin you cant apply any more over top). Its easy to remove.
as for its effects on my skin it didnt noticably really do much? but it did make my skin feel a little softer.
i got i believe the miniature size as it was my first time using it, but a little seems to go a long way with this, i estimate ill get about 14 uses out of this?
oh and did i mention it was only 14 dollars?
really my only complaints would be it does have a fairly short shelf life, so if you don't use face masks super frequently i wouldn't recommend this, plus it didnt really do anything mirsculous for my skin? like it felt a bit softer but.
all in all, this mask is a good price, its fun and relaxing to use but i didnt notice it doing much for my skin.

Lip Treatments -LUSH -Rose Lollipop Lipbalm

It's quite pricey, but, it does last a long time. I used to have really chapped lips (because winter) and after just around one day of using this product, my lips became really soft. Compared to other lip balms / glosses I prefer Lush balms. However, the title is misleading. The product doesn't smell like roses or any floral scent at all. Other than that I rate it a 4.9 / 5.


Masks -LUSH -Cup O' Coffee

This is a super coffee bean smelling mask that linger after you wash it off.i didnt really enjoy the smell as much as i thought i would. It is very sticky feeling on the face and does not dry hard. It stays sticky and i like a mask like mask of magnaminty where it feels more like its working than just sitting on top the skin. This is a nice scrub but i wouldnt try full size since i didnt like the strong black coffee bean smell.

Okay - this mask/scrub is amazing! Radiance - tick! Smells good - tick! Feels amazing - tick! It revives the skin - literally like how a cup of coffee picks you up in the morning, this mask/scrub does just that for the skin. I see a lot of people writing on here that they prefer it as a scrub than a mask - you know, I found that if you use it as a mask IN the shower, it does not set properly. But if you apply it to very slightly damp skin when not in the shower, it sets quite well as a mask. Then, apply water to it once you rinse it off and voila! You have a scrub too! Two in one baby, two in one. And now that Lush sells it in a bigger pot, it makes this baby last even longer. Worth the money. Would absolutely would buy and already have bought it again :)


Gels/Soaps -LUSH -It's Raining Men

I can't believe I didn't know that my favorite Lush scent had a matching shower gel. I'm not quite sure why I don't think of their shower gels ($$$!) But this one is divine. If you like the soap "Honey I Washed the Kids" you will love this. Honey, caramel, and delicious sweetness without being cloying, perfumey or fake smelling.

Completely overpriced and definitely a splurge for body wash, but I think the quality and scent put it far above even similarly priced washes.

Masks -LUSH -Cup O' Coffee

foto

To me, this is a scrub and definitely not a face mask persay. I guess you could use it that way but I like it much better as a scrub anyway. If that and a bit of mess aren't your thing, you might want to look at other Lush masks though.

Scent: Like an amazing fresh cup of Turkish coffee! It's definitely delicious smelling but I don't feel it lingers long. I'm happy just to sniff it in the pot.

Performance: Like a medium to heavy exfoliant, I'd say this is better for arms and chest than regular face use. This same base without the coffee might work better for that *cough cough listen up Lush cough cough*. My skin feels soft, smooth and moisturized, and also looks a bit brighter and more even. The coffee bits don't make a messy shower but they do require a thorough rinse.

Cost: I'd say this is a decent value if you like Lush scrubs or just love the smell. You can make a DIY version with your own coffee grounds if you want a similar effect and smell for way less.

This is my go to mask from lush any time I'm down or my skin needs extra love I pile this on and immediately feel like my tub is a spa :) One thing to note is that I have dry skin and I find this slightly drying I always make sure to moisturize after but my face still feels like it got a nice treat

Masks -LUSH -Mask of Magnaminty

Bought this products because I heard good reviews about it and it lives up to my expectations, or even surpasses it. I think I have combination skin but I noticed I have some dry patches on my skin and feels like I need to exfoliate my skin regularly because it just doesn't happen on it's own.

By using this mask and slowly massaging/ rubbing it after it dries and before rinsing, afterwards I can immediately feel the difference. My dry, dead skin patches were gone and made my skin a lot smoother. So far no complaints about this product and I absolutely love it. My only downside is when I'm feeling lazy I don't feel like using this mask because it can get a little messy while rubbing it against your face, but that's it.

Highly recommended.


Cleansers -LUSH -Buche de Noel

This smells like a cranberry oatmeal cookie. It is similar to angels on bareskin but a tad more moisterizing. I got a sample of this when they ran out of angels on bareskin. Its a holiday edition to lush so its limited. I enjoy the smell but it doesnt break up as well as dark angels or angels on bare skin. Its too chunky in texture for me but it might just be the sample being dried out in the store? Nice one to try out for holidays but i wouldnt repurchase

Edit- this is pretty comparable to aobs. I gotten congested skin and so little bumps all over my forehead and chin from a reaction due to pregnancy. Ive been trying out dark angels but its a little too drying and it is winter time. Ive been really enjoying this cleanser because it makes my skin feel soft and just in good balance and comfortable. Will purchase the big tub since it is limited edition. A good alternative from angels on bareskin.

Edit- the cocoa butter in this freaks me out so i notice i need to rinse very well or i might not feel like im getting a good cleanse. I couldnt use this day and night so i only use this at night but still not cutting it. I miss my aobs so i think i am going to take this back to lush.

Cleansers -LUSH -Dark Angels

Ran out of angels on bareskin so decided to try this. I have oily skin on my t zone and normal cheeks. This is a great cleanser although messy in the bathroom but its great smelling for me and it does clean well and keep me from getting as oily as before. I use this in the morning because i wake up very greasy. Will update if anything changes but right now its very good cleanser non drying but keep me from feeling greasy and also nice little exfoliation like sand feeling

Edit- began to be too drying and makes me feel a little tight. This would be good for maybe twice a week cleanser but if on a budget i rather do a mask and stick with buche de noel or angels on bareskin when they restock. They are having a problem with ingredients so angels on bareskin has been out of stock for the last month...but buche de noel is just as good if not better.


Masks -LUSH -Mask of Magnaminty

Favorite mask because it helped me with congested skin from trying out new products which my skin didnt agree with. It feels like a breath of fresh air after taking it off. great mask. Smells like mint chocolate.

I also tried the self perserving one and its not as dry on the face as in it doesnt harden. I felt like the one that harden works better for me since i feel like its sucking out oil. The lady at the store told me the self perserving one is for if you want a dewey look than clearing treatment.

Edit- been using this every other day for stubborn pregnancy acne. I feel like its not working as great as the first time. I guess i am just horribly breaking out from hormones. I still have little bumps on my forehead and chin. I lowkey feel like maybe this and the brazened honey is the culprit. Ive known lots of reviews that complain about lushes ingredients breaking them out. Sigh idk what to do anymore....def want to try love lettus next.

Masks -LUSH -Cup O' Coffee

on 11/23/2017 2:27:00 PM

I've been using Lush fresh masks religiously for the past couple of years, and only recently due to the winter weather creeping in did I stop to consider a scrub. I originally bought Mask of Magnaminty at the recommendation of the shop assistant after we discussed my skin concerns and she told me to be wary of Cup O' Coffee due to my fairly sensitive reactive skin. Mask of Magnaminty was OK, I loved the uplifting smell but beyond that I didn't get much out of it. More recently, though, I've been having more trouble with my skin and my pores appear larger and more blocked than before. As a result, I asked for a tester of Cup O' Coffee in order to gauge my skin's reaction and I was overwhelmed with the results. Despite the fact that my skin is fairly sensitive, I went for the washcloth approach to removing the mask in order to really work my pores. I was slightly red after, however for the following few days my skin was so soft and the size of my pores has definitely decreased. I was so happy with the product that I'm now on my second medium sized tub and I've been using it every 3 days to keep my winter skin at bay. would thoroughly recommend this Mask, however I'd ask for a tester first and be very gentle in removing it at first until you know the limits of what your skin can handle.
