Though the name has changed (I think now it's Volume Extra Mousse or something similar) the great product is the same. Similar to my shampoo addiction (Lush's BIG), I'm also addicted to this mousse. Other mousses I've tried are too light and airy for my thick, wavy hair. But, a bit of this and voila! Light, soft, bouncy curls. My hair is not chemically treated at all, and I've found that this, in conjunction with Big, give me the best hair I've ever had. It's certainly more expensive than drugstore brands (around $15 - $17 depending on where you buy it), but often I find it on special at certain retailers. Love, love, love this stuff!
I have SUPER healthy hair, but have found that it is a bit picky when it comes to shampoo! I am addicted to Big, but due to the price have tried a few others, both low and high end...but none make my hair behave as well as Big. So, now I take a coupon from the holiday gift sets and use it to buy 4 containers of Big, and am set for the year! It only takes a small dab to wash my medium-length, thick hair, and I'm left with shine and tons of volume. I have naturally wavy hair that I scrunch into curls. With other shampoos I'm left with limp locks, but with Big my curls come right to life. My name is Lara, and I'm a Big-a-holic!
Gels/Soaps -LUSH - Middle Earth Turns To Rock Soap

Fear not, MUAers, for those of you who love this soap and don't want to pay the horrid prices on eBay, you can still get this from the UK Lush site, but now it's called Waylander! :-) I first tried this wonderful soap just a couple weeks ago when I won a slice in an auction for Hurrican Katrina victims. I'm normally not a big patchouli fan, but this....the scent is just hard to describe. It's very earthy and warm, very spicy, and smells wonderful! The first time I used this I didn't even wear any cologne b/c the scent lingered so long and so strongly. It can also be a little masculine, but that's fine w/me!
My only complaint with this item is that it's seasonal....I can't get it any more! :-( Hoping it's back out soon for the holidays so I can stock up! This is such a wonderful holiday/spicy scent, and again, really lasts. I typically break off a small piece and then hold it in my hand, mooshing it around so that it dissolves evenly (I do this w/all Lush bubble bars). This one also gives a great tub of bubbles and is just such a cozy scent. I can't wait for it to come back!
I've seen rants and raves on this one, but this is another Lush item I am totally addicted to. It's chocolate and honey, but smells somewhat floral as well. It's such a wonderful, light smell, and just a pinch makes a HUGE tub of bubbles. I typically get 5 - 6 baths out of one bar, at least! I know they say to crumble "half a bar, or less or more," but I've found that less is plenty. The scent stays and there's no annoying film left on the tub. Love this one - my favorite Lush bubble bar.
I recently "discovered" this soap (one of Lush's original products!) and am hopelessly addicted. This one does not dissolve as fast as some of their other soaps do, and has the BEST scent. Love this stuff!!
Hair Removal -Unlisted Brand - Veet's Bladeless Razor hair removal kit

Ugh....after an initial positive review I'm revoking it. The first time I used this I was thrilled...I didn't have any razor burn, no bumps, no rash, nothing but a nice smooth test patch. Unfortunately, the next day when I did my entire legs, I felt the same thing many other reviewers did - pain, burning, and agony. I had a rash for several days that made hose impossible to wear, and made bare legs painful with even the slightest sweat. Just say no...trust me, you, your legs and your pocketbook will be glad you did.
A friend purchased this and disliked it, so she passed it along to me after just a few uses. I LOVE it. It really is amazing - as long as I use it my face is great. If I skip a few days, I start to break out again. Even my co-workers noticed the difference in my skin. I've been told that the system really isn't good for your skin, simply b/c it DOES stop working as soon as you stop using it. But, for now I think I'll keep using it on a daily basis...and enjoying the results.
I LOVE the ginger line by Lush (which I know many people hate), and this wonderful little dusting powder is a great way for me to be able to enjoy the scent. The ballistic is gone too quickly, and the soap is way too expensive (not that I won't splurge and buy one on my next trip!). But the dusting powder...ahhh, sprinkle some between the sheets and it's bedtime bliss!
Ahhh, Irresistable Bliss! I love the scent of this shampoo, love the lather, love the hot pink color, hate that it doesn't have a container and melts so fast. I have very thick hair and had to really scrub to get enough lather, but I'd still buy this again simply for the wonderful scent.
I originally bought this prior to buying the PS cologne. I wanted something to layer with Philosophy's "Falling in Love" cologne (since their lotion is HORRID), and this fit the bill. I love that this is a very "thin" formula, not a thick moisturizer. It's not at all greasy, and the scent lasts all day.
I first tried this in grapefruit a couple years ago. I fell in love with it, and haven't been able to find it since. Finally, on vacation in San Diego last week, I found it! Grabbed a big container of Appletini - yum. (And now I see it's on drugstore.com. Duh!) Regardless, this stuff is awesome. Unlike most scrubs, it's not the least bit oily; I can't stand it when you buy a scrub and the top third of the container is pure oil. Ewww. This is a soft, fluffy consistency that feels wonderful and smells wonderful. This is my all time favorite scrub, even over my standby of Totally Juicy.
I loooove this bubble bar. It's soft, provides lot of bubbles, and smells wonderful. The rose on top is too cute! One of my favorite Lush items.
Well, I finally bought the "right" one (I purchased Aquamarina by accident when I meant to purchase Herbalism), but I think I like Aquamarina better! This really is more of a mask, and that's how I've been using it. I'll use a very small amount of water, just enough to make a thick paste, and rub this all over my face. I can't tell that it leaves my skin as soft or "glowy" as Aquamarina and Angels on Bare Skin, so I probably won't purchase this particular one again.
I bought this by accident (meant to purchase Herbalism, didn't check the label!), but I'm glad I did! I agree with the other reviews below - the texture is great and it leaves your skin amazingly soft. It can be difficult to get a good size piece out of the container, but using a spoon, knife, etc. seems to help. I use this one and then follow with Angels on Bare Skin for a wonderful skin treat!
