After reading loads of good reviews about this I had to give it a go as it's currently in the retro collection on the LUSH website. I was pretty dissappointed, it just smelt like rich honey, there's nothing special about it and it's proper expensive. It's not a bad scent, but it's not the decadence I was expecting.

This is alright for a reasonably priced foundation. I wouldn't say it's one of the best foundations i've ever tried but it does work well as a cover up. It's not heavy, and it gives a good matte finish, I have fairly ivory skin which this seemed to match up to quite well. I found that in order for this to stay on throughout the day, you'd have to use quite a bit of it, which sort of defeats the object of it being a light weight foundation. I'm indifferent when it comes to this. It'll do until pay day :)
Being someone that washes there hair every day, I was really keen to try this as although my hair doesn't look or feel unhealthy, surely washing it everyday must do it some damage. This product really did'nt live up to my expectations at all. It left my scalp feeling itchy and made areas of my hair look white. I ended up giving this to my 9 year old niece as she liked the smell of it. I won't be buying this product again.
I bought this as I'm pregnant and can't use anything too chemically. This works a treat for getting rid of excess oil, evening out your complexion and reducing spot size. Although it is expensive for a small and not so extravagantly packaged pot, I most definately think it's worth the money, considering what the mask itself does. I only use this once a week as it's quite powerful considering it only contains natural ingredients. I also keep it in the fridge to help keep it fresh.
This is the one and only moisturiser I ever use. I have combination skin and find that most moisturisers sit too heavy on my oily areas, however this is perfect. It some how stops my t-zone from becoming an oily mess as the day goes on and leaves my whole complexion looking and feeling fresh and light. It also enhances my make-up's staying power. Normally I would have something negative to say about a product but there really is nothing I can moan about when it comes to this moisturiser. Has left me in a healthy skin bliss. Thank you lush!
A great blusher. It's not heavy and doesn't feel dusty when you apply it after foundation. I don't use a lot of this product at a time, so a small pot lasts me ages. It comes with a free small brush, however I prefer to use a proper blusher brush. The only problem I have with this blush is it's staying power,I tend to find that it wears away as the day goes on.
I got a pot of this as I fancied a change from my usual lush cleanser - "herbalism". I found that it does cleanse my skin to a degree but not as well as I was hoping. It doesn't have much texture to it so i felt the need to really scrub it to get my face clean. I have combination skin and found that my cheeks and forehead which are quite medium to dry were left soft and fresh, my nose which can be quite oily felt coated and my chin, which is the only even skin area on my face broke out the day after I used it. Not impressed! I'd reccomend this for people with quite dry skin as I didn't feel the need to moisturise after using this cleanser, it seems a little bit too nourishing for me!
I really love this perfume although find that it doesn't have any staying power. I also found that it only seems to have 1 layer to it, so the scent get's quite boring and samey after a while. However, I still like it. It's sweet, timeless and a reliable scent to go back to.
A little bit of this shampoo goes a long way. The first time I used it, I lathered in far too much which left my hair feeling really weighed down and bulky. However because it smelt so good I had to give it a second chance. If you use a small blob of it and rinse really well, it works a treat. I found the aussie mega conditioner a bit to heavy, instead I use "happy hair days mint and rosemary volumizing conditioner" which compliments Aussie mega perfectly, leaving your hair weightless and manageable.
