I bought this for my sons hair. He has fine toddler hair that I like to keep in place and I'm not gonna use gel so I picked this up since i already use the shampoo and are familiar with the brand. It's perfect! I use a pinch and his hair is left so soft and shiny, and most of all...in place! The smell is wonderful, kinda like licorice (anise). I did get curious and tried it on the front of my hair (3b curls) and it did nothing. Love it for my kiddo.
I boldly purchased a 1oz bottle of Icon un sniffed and I honestly don't regret it...kinda let down though. Let down only because its not as complex as others made it sound. It smells decent from the first spray right on through to the dry down but isn't anything spectacular, and though its strong it doesn't last long. Not long on me anyway. It's a basic inscent type fragrance with nothing special going for it. I do use it but only hanging around the house or to bed, not for date night or anything like that. I wouldn't purchase again but I am enjoying the bottle that I do have. Overall I would say its just....ok.
I LOVE this fragrance. I personally don't pick fruity/ citrus scents for myself but I do enjoy smelling it on my toddler :) I bought this for my son and he really loves it, probably more so because he gets a kick out of me digging my face into his neck sniffing like an out of control puppy lol. He enjoys taking baths with the Fizzbanger bath bombs and this perfume smells exactly like it. Cinnamon Apple with a dash of fresh Lemon. It is a cheerful, bright, and happy scent that reminds me of my son whenever I get a whiff....and the name "Love" is perfect! I like mixing it with this sweet orange and mocha cologne fragrance he also wears. I'd highly recommend Love. PS. I only dab his fragrances on his shirt collar or sleeves, never on his skin. Please don't douse children with perfume lol. Just sayin'.
I decided to purchase this perfume in the solid form. Should have just gotten a bottle since I'm really diggin' this scent. I lean more toward Gourmand Jammy type Rose scents but, this one is really pretty....yet not all the way frou frou like most Roses tend to smell. Someone mentioned that this smells just like the Lush store right when you walk in....I concur. And you all know how good that paper Lush bag smells when you get home and pull them goodies out lol..like that! I think that's why I like it....Lush and their paper bags smell great lol. It's light, a bit powdery, feminine and naturally just not my thing per say, yet a welcome split from the norm. A great pick for spring.
Masks -Unlisted Brand - Aztec - Indian Healing Clay

Yeah, I bought into the hype with this product. Used it a couple of times and it was just meeeeh. Didn't do much of anything really, other than irritate my skin. Did nothing for my pores either. I was not expecting it to unclog pores (extraction does that) but' I thought I'd get some kind of refining, but nope. This was basically....useless. I will stick to Whole Truth Solutions Facial Masks for skin clarifying.
Treatments (Eye) -Unlisted Brand - ISUN Peptide Eye Gel
Khiandra 5/21/2013 1:01:00 PM
I picked up a couple of items from this line even with the lack of reviews for any of their products. I kinda regret purchasing this eye gel. First off, the scent...kinda ho hum. Can't smell much, which I guess is a good thing? It's an amberish colored gel that has a super slippery consistency. You only need a tiny drop to cover your eye area. It will pump out too much product so I would suggest holding it to the back of your hand and pump very slowly. What I really dislike about this gel is the fact that it never fully absorbs. Basically it remains a little sticky shiny layer until you wash your face again. I've been testing it out for the past three weeks and it has not visibly done anything to my under eye area. This should not be $40 bucks...sorry. Even though this product was a fail ISUNs Tanning Oil is fabulous. As for eye treatments I'm sticking with my tried and true Dr.Alkaitis. Was thinking about trying ISUNS eye cream but i may have to just pass. I wouldn't recommend this eye gel.
Moisturizers -Unlisted Brand - Skin & Bones Luxurious Moisturizer

This moisturizing oil is Fabulous!! It's moisturizing, clean, non-pore clogging, light, and smells absolutely wonderful. Seriously, the scent is intoxicatingly good. Definitely the corner stone of my day and night time skincare routines. I am also a huge fan of the Dr. Alkaitis Treatment Oil yet,I must admit that I do reach for my Skin&Bones more often. Basically both of these are my favorite. The bottle is black and looks chic on my vanity. All aesthetics aside, this is an amazing face oil that I would highly recommend especially to those whom already use jojoba oil. Totally Luxurious! Will never replace this...ever. HG
I adore lush toothy tabs. Probably one of my top 3 favorite products from this company hands down. This flavor in particular is my second fav next to Chou Chou I Love You. When you initially crunch it up you"ll experience a spicy peppery sensation. That soon fades into a sweet mild citrus type taste (idk...I can't really explain it....you have to just try it). After rinsing, your left with a spicy taste in your mouth. Makes no dam* sense but I love it, and yes it does get rid of morning breath leaving your mouth feeling clean. A must try, if not just for the sheer fun of it.
This product is fabulous. Especially if you don't wear full on makeup everyday like moi. Helps you to pull your look together quickly/ effortlessly. The color is like a deep pinky red. Looks very pretty against my skin tone and makes my teeth look super white. Not too moisturizing so lip balm first. Smells great. I think every lady should own a lip/cheek stain, if not this one.
I was pretty sure that this was gonna be my favorite lush perfume since I really love sweet scents but this was just.....ok. Definatly not a generic vanilla scent...actually kinda strange. It does smell like vanilla but more interesting and deep. I really like it within the first 20minutes or so but, the dry down is kinda meeeh. It starts to smell like old school hair grease....African Pride to be exact. I will use up my bottle but I doubt I would repurchase.....just hate that my sense of smell converts this to hair grease lol.
Well, I'm more so partial to higher end perfumes but I just love Lust. It's loud, obnoxious, smoldering, and definatly not a pretty fragrance but I just adore it. I use it more so like aromatherapy. If I'm feeling stressed out, moody, or a little low I spray this and it instantly gives me a jolt of positive energy. I also like wearing this to bed. Definatly an interesting scent worth trying out. We need a Lust Massage Bar Lush!
This was just....ok. It does moisturize, but only short term....like right after you've used it. When the greasiness is gone the moisturized feeling is too. Doesn't penetrate. The scent is pretty bad also. Doesn't stink, just really unpleasant....headache inducing. It's great that lush created a hand moisturizer without parabens but I hope they create a hand " cream" without parabens. As for this solid, your better off just using a massage bar.
Lotions/ Creams -LUSH - Strawberry Feels Forever Massage Bar
Khiandra 5/15/2013 6:15:00 PM
Does smell a bit like fake strawberry lol? Well...a lot like fake strawberry, but it does start to smell a tiny bit better after its been on the skin for a while. Good moisturizer but I probably won't repurchase.
I really like this lip balm but only because it is the cleaner UK version. I've tried the US version before I realized it had paraben and borax (aka, the stuff you use to kill ants and bugs!). UK version is smooth, moisturizing and doesn't get gritty over time. It also moisturizes and doesn't dry out my lips over time like the US version. Has anyone caught on to the drastic ingredient difference?? Sucks to have to order from overseas. Come on North America Lush......can we get the better formulation here?? Ps. The scent does smell a little like chocolate but when on the lips, a strong smokey scent develops? I don't pick up any orange? Still nice though.
I love this stuff. My favorite flavor out of the bunch. I'm not gonna front, you do get better exfoliation from a warm wet washcloth but its so much more fun using lush lip scrubs. Mint Julips smells so delicious and it taste even better even though I was one of those folks that thought it would be gross to lick it off lol. I would suggest using this daily as a maintenance product but don't depend on it for anything heavy duty. Totally unecessary but it does lift your spirits when you use it :)
