I always need Buffy in my shower, literally. I have been using this product for over a year now and I can hardly imagine my life without (okay that's a little bit of a dramatic statement).
I use it 2-3 times a week: the rougher part on my elbows, knees and derrière and the softer on basically everything else.
It does the job in exfoliating and it also leaves the skin amazingly moisturized (maybe slightly oily if you don't rise it properly)
The smell vaguely reminds me of lavander, but it definitely not an overpowering smell, so you can put any lotion (even though there is no need because Buffy alone nourishes the skin perfectly) or perfume. It is a very nice smell and it lingers on your skin a little but again is so delicate, maybe somewhat like Symphaty for the Skin in terms of scent.
It is a little bit pricey, but since you get an exfoliant and moisturizer in one, it is completely worth it.
amazing! the only scrub needed period. I've used this as a body scrub for years it keeps me smooth and soft. if your a clean freak residue from the butters may freak you out...but them again if you are a clean freak you shouldn't notice ;). it's weird, it's not in a tube or a pot, however if that's what is stopping you get over it and get you a Buffy! if your sensitive to pressure start on your thighs to warm the bar up!
Simply adore this product! I suffered from getting these little pimples on my bottom that have now disappeared thanks to this product & the Salux Wash Cloth :) I normally scrub my body down with the salux cloth mixed in with dove body wash, then I’ll turn the shower off and use the LUSH Buffy to scrub down my bottom, side of my thighs and my stomach (I am currently 31 weeks pregnant and trying to stray away the stretch marks and so far it seems to be working) my skin is beautifully moisturized after although I tend to slap on bio oil after (REALLY don’t want stretch marks in this pregnancy) et voila, Perfect skin :) little spotties on my botty are now a thing of the past and I can confidently walk around in my naked pregnant gloryness around my husband without worrying about whether my bottom looks nice or not :)
This stuff is the best of the best.
Leaves my skin sooo moisturized and soft it's incredible. It smells therapeutic, that's the only way I can describe it!
It works soo well and exfoliates without being too harsh. I apply in an area and then use my hands to rub it in. If you scrub this everywhere it will be harsh so use your hands to rub in the product.
This stuff is awesome! Finally something I like from lush! Makes my skin so soft and moisturized. Perfect for people like me who are too lazy to apply lotion after a long shower. However, the exfoliating bits can get a bit rough once the bar is at its end.
This product is a lifesaver for my rough elbows, tiny bumps on arms/legs and any part of me that needs a little extra exfoliation. I have tried every scrub, loofah, pumice stone and lotion I can think of for my elbows and the backs of my legs- nothing else left them looking as nice or bump free. If I have an important event to go to where my arms will be showing, I will use this all over my arms/shoulders and I get the most beautiful glow to my skin. The price is a little high for this bar but I am very conservative with it and I definitely get my money's worth. I also love the smell, it's sort of herbal and muted but it leaves my skin with a nice soft scent. I really cannot recommend this product enough.
Tips: DO NOT USE THIS PRODUCT UNDER RUNNING WATER. Step out the stream of water, place the bar in your hand and scrub your rough bits away. I also cut the bar up into several pieces, the big bar is harder to divide but it's a better deal in the long run. I never let this product touch the water and each chunk is enough for 3 or 4 showers as long as I don't use it on my whole body. I store it in a travel soap tray that has a cover but it's fine on a shower caddy as long as no water hits it. I recommend only using this on your most rough skin as it can be harsh on your softer parts.
Buffy is a great exfoliating bar. It is a little rough but if it's too rough for you just use the other side which is a little softer. Buffy leaves a great cocoa butter residue and leaves your skin feeling soft and super hydrated. It's supposed to help with cellulite but I haven't used anything YET (I've used about 50% of the bar). This bar melts easily, do not use it with the water directly hitting it and make sure you let it dry after use. All in all its a great hydrating bar and leaves a luxurious feeling.
So disappointed with this product! I know it's one of Lush's tried and true holy grail products that they're known for, but using this literally hurt me! First impression was that it smelled great and doesn't melt super easily, which is nice knowing that it'll last for a long time. But once I started rubbing the bar into my skin...OUCH! As in I have a huge scrape on my leg from where I used it! It didn't seem to affect my arms or back but my legs are scraped up and itchy! I know this is good for cellulite, so I'll probably use it up to help with that, but I won't be repurchasing sad to say
I gave this a 4/5 only because the exfoliation is a little rough for my sensitive skin. It works great and is very moisturizing but it hurts a bit. It smells a very strongly of almonds to me. It's very easy to use - just get wet and rub it all over! Then with your hands, gently rub it around so it can exfoliate and the moisturizing butters can get into your skin. I don't need to use a lotion afterwards because this moisturizes so well. Be sure to keep it out of the water and heat when you're not using it otherwise it will simply melt away.
Good product. Like the scent and find it good for exfoliating dry skin without making it sore.
Really moisturizing though it can leave a residue on your skin it's no worse than after using a moisturizer. A bar lasts a good while - at least a month with daily use. Great for using on your legs if you shave to stop ingrown hairs.
Packaging not great - you'll have to buy one of the lush tins to carry it if you plan on taking it travelling or to the gym as it can melt if it gets too warm or leave residue on fabric.
