Masks -LUSH -Bunny Moon Jelly Face Mask

This is the second jelly mask I have tried from Lush, and I am very impressed with it. Bunny Moon is a good one for those who have dry or sensitive skin. It has soothing and softening ingredients that my skin loves, such as honey, rose oil and chamomile. I simply wet my face, take a small amount of product from the tub and rub it between my fingers until it breaks down some. Then I apply to my face, leave for 15 minutes and then rinse. I do find that the jelly masks are easier to rinse off in the shower than just by the skin. However, I have no issues with Lush's jelly formula. I find that my skin feels soft, smooth and hydrated after using this mask. It is a very gentle face mask. It gives my skin a lovely glow after use. It also has a lovely honey scent. I will definitely repurchase this one. I am keen to try out other Lush jelly masks too. This one is just lovely.

Masks -LUSH -Oatifix Fresh Mask

Hell no. I'm lucky I got a sample and didn't spend money on this. After I washed off this mask, I quickly developed red, irritated, itchy bumps all over my face and started peeling like crazy. It's been four days and it's just starting to calm down. I won't be buying anything from lush for a while.

Misc Beauty Tools -LUSH -LUSH - Whole Store

Used to really like some of their skincare in my 20's like Vanishing Cream or Cosmetic Lad. Starting with 30 their stuff just didn't cut it anymore and realistically it can't. There's nothing anti ageing in there, nothing that provides deep hydration, no decent exfoliation (apart from salt, lemon juice, maize flour etc), no sunscreen. If you're young and spotty you're probably gonna like Mask of Magnaminty or smth like that, but by 25 or 30 (at the latest!) do yourself a favour get yourself a retinol, a hyaluronic, a C serum, and a good chemical exfoliant. Trust me, all the cocoa butter, lemon juice, essential oil mixtures do not compare. And the high ammounts of fragrance (whether natural or synthetic) and SLS may sensitize your skin over time (it did mine).
The shower gels and shampoos are ridiculously drying, the bath bombs are fussy to store, inconsistent in quality and crumble all over the place. The bubble baths turn to rocks now if you don't use them straight away. I did like their hair treatments though!
In the last 10 years the ethics of the company also changed drastically: products are bulked up with CORN FLOUR, perfumes now contain WATER, prices are ever increasing while the formulas don't change and the sizes get smaller. Good classic products were discontinued to make way for gimmicky crap like dusting powder in a cocoa butter case or naked foundation. If something comes back then in an over hyped super small batch, at double the price and you're supposed to wake up 4 hours early or schedule your day around the time it gets put online...
Long story short if you're young and greasy and looking for a scrub or mask to dry the s### out of you, this is the place for you :) For everyone else, there are tons of better products and better companies out there at better prices.


Gels/Soaps -LUSH -Honey I Washed the Kids soap

on 1/12/2019 6:33:00 AM

Oh if you love sweet smelling, soft skin which makes you want to breathe deeply as you walk in the spring air with a mild warm wind blowing, then try this. I was hooked! It was a gift from my daughter-first Lush product ever and I was sold. The toffee/honey smell is soft but captures your attention. It's a softer soap so be sure to keep it stored in a tin. The soap has 2 parts as the top portion is a honeycomb which is rougher but does fall off. The last bar I had had an unusually thin section of honeycomb and immediately fell off during my initial wash which was disappointing. Honey is a wonderful, natural healer so if I have a breakout, I use the honeycomb side which has always healed my skin, surprisingly quickly too.
It doesn't lather up much so if you aren't used to natural products, be forewarned. It doesn't mean it's not a great product, because it is definitely that. There is a product of the same name which is a liquid body wash which is wonderful also and a hair bar for washing or conditioning your hair which wasn't my favourite item but smells divine. Keep it stored in a tightly covered soap container to make it last as it's a softer soap. I highly recommend it.

Absolutely LOVE this product! Fragrance is beautiful and addicting and works very well moisturizing your skin. I also put it in my feet after my shower but make sure you bring socks with you and put them on immediately or you will end up with it on your carpet etc or could potenslip if not rubbed in very well.
It's one of my 'makes me happy' products that I have found made a big difference especially this dry winter and will not have a shower without one of these from Lush. Be sure to run it in well and I wouldn't recommend it if you are wearing silk as it would likely absorb the oil and ruin the blouse I think. I wish they made tins to fit this product but doesn't stop me from buying it again.

I LOVE this product since the first time I bought it. The fragrance is lovely-almost addicting. It doesn't leave me feeling sticky and works really well on my feet which for the first re ever, became dry this winter. My skin feels much better and smells lovely and I would absolutely recommend this as an all over body butter. I wish they made a tin for it to be stored in as it would last longer in the shower but I've kept it out of the spray and seems fine.

I love the fragrance of this shower gel - I want to wear it as a perfume but haven't found it in the store as a perfume. You need to shake the bottle as the ingredients separate, and when you squeeze it out it's quite runny and looks watery. But a little goes a long way! I used it about once a week and my bottle lasted nearly a year. So it's great value.
It lathers up really well and it felt nice on my skin - soft and gentle. It didn't strip my skin at all.
I am not a huge fan of Lush packaging - I prefer my packaging to be a more girly looking. But I love the fragrance so much I can let it go :)


Cleansers -LUSH -Fresh Farmacy Cleanser Bar

foto

My bar for a good cleanser is that it should remove MU as well. This one that not, not even slightly. Most cleansers I reviewed / used in the past, remove MU as well, not this one. Instead it's a nice morning face wash to start the day, it doesn't irritate skin and feels smooth and clean afterwards. However, the soap bar easily breaks which isn't convenient. Won't repurchase.

This is a good product. Leaves hair feeling clean and healthy. Will repurchase.


Conditioner -LUSH -Sugar Daddy-O

I love the solid shampoo bars by LUSH, so I was excited to try out a solid conditioner. Unfortunately, this product is incredibly disappointing. It is very difficult to melt in your hands, so in order to use this product it takes me a good five minutes of rubbing in my palm with a little water, rubbing my hands over my hair, and repeat. The bar is slippery to hold onto, so during this process I often drop the bar into my bathtub which drives me nuts. Even after minutes of doing this I never feel like I have enough product on my long hair. While my hair is soft and shiny after using this product, it is not quite moisturizing enough, and there are plenty of conditioners out there that are far easier to use that will provide better results. I have to pass on this one.


Cleansers -LUSH -Ultra Bland Facial Cleanser

foto

I have spent the past couple of years experimenting with different skincare brands and the most recent brand has been LUSH.

Ultrabland was my first Lush skincare purchase, I had heard great things from my friends and reviews online. It is a thick, creamy and oily cleanser. I would recommend using a face cloth as it is near impossible to just 'rinse off'. Does a great job of taking make-up off, depending on your preference you can either leave it as is or proceed with a second cleanser. I personally didn't like this as an eye make-up remover, it left my eyes red and blurry so I used micellar water instead. My dry/combination skin was left soft and smooth.
However, this gave me loads of blackheads! Be prepared to bulk buy face cloths because this is a bloody nightmare to wash out and leaves an unpleasant sour scent and waxy coating on your cloths.

Overall, sadly doesn't seem to work well with my skin. None of LUSH facial skin products work for me tbh, they either give me
breakouts, clog my pores or leave my face very irritated.

I recommend Clinique 'Take the Day Off' cleansing balm as it is fragrance-free and is much easier to remove.

I use this hair treatment every 5 days! It works, makes my hair smoother and less frizzy. I received comments saying it looked like I got a perm!


Gels/Soaps -LUSH -Honey I Washed the Kids soap

foto

Ok if you like your gourmand scents then you will LOVE this. It's very sweet - brown sugar meets caramel and honey. It can be tempting to take a bite out of the bar sometimes and god knows how I've managed to restrain myself so far!

There are a couple of negatives: The honeycomb bit on the top of the soap bar is too rough for me, even if I try and use it in place of an exfoliating mitt, I just don't like the texture at all. It also doesn't lather up very well, but then again it is very natural so it's a case of give and take I suppose.
Lots of nourishing oils and good stuff in here which is probably why it's one of the most moisturizing bars of soap I've ever used, none of that 'stripped' feeling that my skin's used to feeling after washing. Slightly pricey, but for something that smells this good, I honestly don't mind paying that bit extra.

Gels/Soaps -LUSH -Rose Jam Shower Gel

Lush's Rose Jam shower gel will make your entire bathroom smell like sweet comforting rose jam with a little spice thrown in for good measure. It's divine. As far as cleansing power -- it's everything you'd expect from a quality shower gel; soapy, sudsy, lathers up fast and rinses off clean. But it's the fragrance that is wonderful. If you adore sweet roses with a little 'je ne sais quoi." you will love Rose Jam. I received my shower gel in the Lush set of Rose Jam products in the beauitful Rose box for the holidays. It includes the Rose Jam Body Spray and Ro's Body Conditioner. Lovely presentation.
