Lush is a highly popular company, especially in the blogging world, but it is also one of my favourite companies to support knowing that their products are natural, cruelty free and (mostly) vegan. They can be a little pricey at times, but 95% of the time it is completely worth the extra cost. I have been buying from Lush for quite some time now, and decided to tell you of my most used products, so in no particular order, here it is.
Rub Rub Rub
This is my second pot of Herbalism and one of my favourite cleansers I have ever tried. It can be used on the face and body, although I mostly use it as a facial cleanser and it lasts for so long. The products is designed to be mixed with water to create a paste, which you can adapt to create as much of a deep/light cleanse as you need. My skin appears brighter and more balanced after using it, and the paste texture isn’t harsh on my skin. I don’t have any negatives about this product, and will continue to use it regularly. I was put off with its unusual smell at first, but I have actually grown to like it now.
9 To 5
“Tumble out of bed and stumble to the kitchen? Then this quick cleanser is the thing for you. Beautifully light and simple to use orchid and almond oil lotion to cleanse and clear your skin.”
Next we have 9 To 5. This is one of the most recent products that have been added to my favourites. I tend to break out a lot and wanted to pick up something that might add a little extra help. It’s also a quick and easy to use cleanser for the lazier days when skin care isn’t your priority, which I’m sure we all have. When I picked this up the cashier told me how she loves it and uses it every day, and I haven’t been disappointed by it. I believe that it has helped my skin and it leaves it feeling more moisturized than Herbalism. The smell isn’t anything that would convince me purchasing it, as it just has that standard moisturized/lotion scent, however this does make it feel a lot more natural and refreshing than if it had a load of scents shoved into it. All you need to do is apply it to your skin and remove using a warm flannel or cotton pads, so it is great for people on the go or those that are as lazy as me.
Tea Tree Water
“Comes to the aid of skin that has emergencies. Tea tree is a wonder antibacterial, antiseptic and antimicrobial ingredient for anyone with oily or spot prone skin.”
Once again, I picked this one up as the description appealed to me to help my spot prone skin. I enjoy using this as spraying it directly onto my face feels very refreshing. If I’m having more of a bad skin day I feel spray it onto cotton pads to get more of a fuller application. I feel as though it has helped my skin and it is my favourite toner that I have tried. This bottle is starting to run low so I will definitely be purchasing a new one once it has all gone.
“Succumb to the exquisite sweetness of the luxurious, floral shower gel. You’ve been kissed by a rose.”
As expected this shower gel isn’t the perfect miracle worker we’ve all been waiting for that leaves your body picture perfect, but it is a touch above the average shower gel you’ve been buying from the local supermarket. It leaves my skin feeling soft and smelling delightful. As this is a small bottle I got as a present I’ve tried to reserve it until I can get some more, so when I do decide to use this it’s like an extra special treat. The smell is amazing, and literally smells like a rose jam. It smells good enough to eat and alongside Snow Fairy it is my absolute favourite shower gel from Lush.
“Sea salt, Seaweed and sensual fragrance for volume, softness and shine.”
This is the first and only shampoo I have actually tried from Lush so I can’t compare it against the others, but I am happy with it. I decided to purchase it after I watched a YouTube video who reviewed that Seanik was basically a solid version of another shampoo Big. I wanted something that would be easy to travel with so I decided to go for the solid shampoo and purchased a tin to keep it in. Sadly I was sold a dodgy tin, which is incredibly hard to open (I have another which is nothing like this one). Although it’s not a massive fault, its impossible to open in the shower once I have wet hands, so I have to remember to open it beforehand but not let any water get to it. This bar has lasted me a super long amount of time, and it adds noticeable volume to my hair after use. It also leaves my hair feeling more deeply cleansed, fresher and lighter than other drugstore bought shampoos, and I like knowing that I’m not adding unnecessary chemicals to my hair. It smells similar to Rub Rub Rub with that strong sea salt, beach waves scent and is very easy to use. It lathers up very well and my only annoyance with the product is that it deforms pretty quickly, which makes it difficult to get in and out of the tin sometimes.
“Well, this bar is supreme. It moisturises like a dream. Why, it’s tattoo brightenin’.”
Lastly we have Elbow Grease, I picked this up when I was just on a scout for some new products to try, my friend was buying it at the time and I thought I’d give it a go too. This isn’t a die for product but it is nice to use every now and again. The tattoo brightening side of it appealed to me most, as I tend to moisturise my tattoos a little extra to get them looking darker and a bit fresher. This gives that appearance nicely, and leaves a nice, moisturised sheen. It also makes my skin feel softer and I would recommend it to anyone who has tattoos, particularly to those who may want to make them appear fresher and brighter for photos.
Well that’s all for now folks, hope you’ve enjoyed reading about my most used lush products. Leave comments of your favourite Lush products so I can get some recommendations next time I’m on the scout for new products to try, April
