MY HOLY GRAIL MOISTURISER!!!! I have been using this moisturiser for 2 years now both morning and night - I can honestly say that I am in love with everything about this product.

Texture: It is a light cream that absorbs really fast into the skin. It is by no means overly thick. It is just the right consistency because it allows your skin to feel nicely moisturised without feeling …

I've nothing particularly positive to say nor anything particularly negative either. This product is very average in my opinion. I have been using it as an evening cleanser once my makeup is removed- it is a good cleanser but nothing spectacular and I much prefer Cleanse & Polish for a good overall and effective cleanse. However, I do think it is a fairly reasonable price for the amount …Read more

I really wanted to love this blush. Although it looks nice when first applied, I found it had no staying-power on my cheeks and within a short space of time, my cheeks looked pale again. I then put more of the product on in layers and still did not last. Disappointed and would not re-purchase.

Love, Love, Love this lipstick! I purchased "Non-Stop Red" and I cannot believe how long lasting this colour is- I cant speak for the rest of the range. I too bought this because of a recommendation by Lisa Eldridge and have worn it every day since purchased! I have those kind of lips which lipstick just doesn't cling too and I gave up buying bolder colours for a while. However …Read more

I bought this product because of a special offer in Superdrug and have been using it twice a day for about 2 weeks. My skin is combination so I was undecided which catagory I fell into. I eventually decided to try the one for dull skin as my skin had been looking quite sallow lately. I can honestly say that this moisturiser blew me away! It is a gel consistency which I had never tried before but …Read more

I was pleasantly suprised by this foundation as I did not expect much. It gave me much more coverage than I had anticipated, particularly because this product is marketed as a lighter coverage foundation. I bought the colour "shell" and its perfect for my skin tone. The packaging is appauling though- I end up wasting product and it gets kind of messy. However, I would recommend to …Read more

Love this product! I prefer to use this in the morning when I want my skin to feel truly clean rather than overly soft. One of my favourite Lush products and its always a staple in my skin care regime. I have combination sensitive skin and I feel that this goes on really gently on my skin and also acts as an exfoliant.

Be warned, you end up making a mess in the sink!

Love, Love, Love this product! I have tried many cleansers over the years but none feel quite as luxurious as this! I bought it after reading that it was a favourite of Marilyn Monroe's (and I am a big fan of her's.) The texture feels quite heavy on and it is probably best suited to those with normal/dry skin but if you make sure you wash it off with a flannel, it leaves your skin …Read more

I had high hopes for this after seeing a demo on television but I was dissapointed when it arrived in the post. I hated the texture which felt thick and tar-like- it just sat clogging my eyelashes to the point where it looked like I had none.

Liked the idea of it much more than the product itself.
