I got the Independant eyeliner (black) and Decisive lipstick (cherry red). The eyeliner goes on well, but I've noticed that some bits end up flaking when dry and ending up in the corners of my eyes. On the plus side, any mistakes can be wiped away really easily. The lipstick is way too bright for me though. I thought it would be darker when I swatched it in the shop but it ended up everywhere when I tried it on my lips, and it was really hard to remove the stain. However, when using it as a blush (just a dab on each cheek and really blending it in) it was pretty good. The packaging is really cute and would be pretty handy for travelling. I got these two at half price at the after Christmas sales, so it wasn't expensive but I'm not sure I'd repurchase. I might go and get a creme eyeshadow though.
I took a hammer to it and made it a really fine powder. I should have left it in for longer or it simply doesnt work for black hair. Washing it out, my hair felt really thick and healthy.
I used it as a body butter, but like quite a few other people, I find it melts really quickly. I bought a body butter tin, but it sticks to the bottom. The paper doesnt hold it well, so I'm not sure what to do with it. Its minty and it moisturises well. The scent faintly sticks. However, I prefer King of Skin to this.
I used this in place of moisturiser for more than a month. It came in the paper wrap, and I found it difficult at first to get it to melt to rub over my face. At first it was good, I liked the smell and my face was soft in the morning. I noticed that after applying mineral foundation (I use Bella Pierre so I might have needed to use a primer first), that my foundation would run off my face. Then I started to break out a little, so I bought Celestial instead and havent touched it since.
I got this as a sample after buying henna from Lush. It did not condition my hair at all! I used this after washing my hair with Rehab to get rid of all the henna. I liked the smell though, since all I could smell were coconuts.
I got this as a sample, and it was pretty good. I was going to buy this but I ended up getting 9 to 5, which I prefer because of the smell. Since this is an eye remover, it seemed more economical to get 9 to 5 which is both a cleanser and removes eye makeup, as well as the mineral foundation I use.
I went into Lush wanting to buy a solid shampoo (because the review said that it would last a long time), but the shop assistants told me that I should use this for my chemically straightened hair. I wound up getting this and R&B, but they had also recommended Retrend condtioner to follow. Maybe it would have made a big difference it I had bought it, but the price was too much for the conditioner, especially since I have the solid jungle as well. Anyway, I found that my hair tangled a lot more and the smell that I really liked when lathering disappeared (well, then again I do use conditioner after and then R&B). Anyway, I prefer Cynthia Sylvia Stout to this.
I went ahead and bought this without getting a sample. At $16 AUD, it was pretty expensive compared to my old cleansers (I used apricot scrub and QV). It was less expensive than the Aqua Marina though and way less messy. I think I keep getting sucked into the 'it will last way longer" spreel. Anyway, I've only started using this and I love it. Even though I follow this with Celestial, I dont think it needs much moisturising after, and its really quick and easy to use. I find the smell lovely and it hasnt made me break out. Its got pluses for being able to take off eye makeup (which Aqua Marina never did) and it makes my skin feel soft after.

I was given a sample of this after I bought a few other hair products (I didn't request it so I believe they thought this would help my chemically straightened hair). I didnt like the smell but after using it, my hair was pretty soft and detangled easily after. The downside was that usually thick hair felt flat. Oh and while showering, my hair felt fuller. I've tried the Lush henna as well, and it felt the same as that time (really thick and healthy), but only in the shower.
It smells super good, but it is a bit more watery than I expected. I have Glogg and previously had used Grass and Tramp. I'm not too sure about its moisturising ability since I always follow every wash with body butter.This is my favourite one, so I will be buying this again.
I got this as a sample after I finished Aqua Marina. I really didnt like the vinegary smell and it was pretty darn crumbly even after adding a little water. I broke out a little after a few washes, so I dont think this is right for my skin.
I like the irish moss smell. I bought this as a replacement for Rehab and I like it far better. It doesnt seem to tangle my hair as much either and i think the lathering power is stronger too. Since the 100ml Rehab lasted 1.5 months, I think its worth spending the money (I had previously bought elvive and fructis).

I really like this as an after product. I haven't found a good conditioner yet, so I use this after conditioning everyday. The smell is pretty strong, but in the morning, my hair is softer and less tangly. I have pretty long hair so it seems to be disappearing quite quickly; after a month and a half I have half left.
I love the smell of this. I think it smells like coca cola or christmas fruit cake, but I prefer more fruity light smells when I shower, especially after exercising.
This stuff is awesome. I really like how thick it is so you dont need to use much. The smell is heavenly as well.
