I absolutely adore LUSH products I always want one or more of each product in the store. I decided to grab quite a few things when I visited a few weeks ago and have been testing them out since.
Mask of Magnaminty 315g (RRP £9.75)
“Easily smoothed over the skin anywhere you like, this mask is made with peppermint oil to stimulate, marigold oil and chlorophyllin to treat the skin; evening primrose seeds and aduki beans to gently exfoliate as you remove it. There’s also mineral rich kaolin to nourish, antibacterial honey, and peppermint oil to stimulate the blood cells just under the surface of your skin to leave it looking bright and refreshed.”
This face and body scrub is amazing, not only does it smell good enough to eat but it makes my skin look and feel great. The first initial impression of the scent of this scrub is that it smelt like mint chocolate which you would think would smell quite sickly and strong after 15 minutes of having it on your face but it doesn’t, it is not overpowering in the slightest. I usually use this in conjunction with ‘Dark Angels’ for what I believe to be the best results for my skin. I’ve noticed that using both it eliminates the dirt and grime from my skin (gross I know), this is evident when I use my Clinique Clarifying Lotion as when I do not use the scrubs you can see that dirt and grime. What is even better about this product is that it is self-preserving, so that it does not need to be stored in the fridge.
This product would definitely be a repurchased item when it is all used up.
Dark Angels Cleanser 100g (RRP £6.75)
“Black sugar and charcoal to exfoliate, and rhassoul mud to deeply cleanse. We also use cold pressed avocado oil and vegetable glycerine to moisturise and soften your skin after all that scrubbing, leaving your skin feeling balanced and fresh. Sandalwood and rosewood oils give a rich, earthy fragrance and have a cooling and antiseptic effect on the skin.”
As stated above I use this cleanser in conjunction with ‘Mask of Manaminty’, again this product is great for my skin. Only a small amount of this is needed I then mix with a small amount of warm water and rub together in between my hands, this is then applied all over my face and gently rub in a circular motion. My skin is left feeling so soft and I can say that it has left it looking less dull and instantly brightened. After using the scrub you would think that your skin looks quite red due to black sugar included in the ingredients but it does not.
Angels on Bare Skin 100g (RRP £6.75)
“Inspired by a mediaeval recipe and topped off with lavender flowers, this contains kaolin to absorb grease and dirt, leaving skin clean and nourished. Lavender oil and rose absolute calm the skin.”
When using this product you mix with a small amount of water, rub around in between your hands forming a paste and then rub into your skin which I usually leave to soak for 5-10 minutes. This does exactly what it says it will, I have found with some face cleansers you put it on and then wash it off when you need to and feel like it has not really done anything for my skin but this is a different story, it feels like it has throughly cleansed my skin. This product also helps in toning and brighting your skin.
Whoosh Shower Jelly 100g (£3.50)
“Its zingy fragrance and slinky feel will blast away fatigue, especially if you chill this jelly in the fridge or freezer beforehand. We’ve mixed seaweed, fresh citrus juices, rosemary and geranium oils into this pot.”
I really like this product it leaves your body feeling refreshed and awake, I have yet to try this product after it being in the fridge or the freezer. The only downside to it with being a jelly it is quite slippery and I end up dropping it quite a lot.
Honey Bee Bath Bomb (RRP £3.35)
“A good soak in a Honey Bee bath will soothe and cleanse the skin thanks to its wonder trio of honey, aloe vera, and rhassoul mud, a clay mined near Morocco’s Atlas Mountains. Honey is a wonder ingredient that soothes, retains moisture and is antiseptic, and we add plenty of cooling aloe vera, too. Rhassoul mud has natural cleansing properties, and also helps condition and soften the skin.”
This bath bomb was quite strange to use it left the water looking yellow which looked strange to bath in, I was not too keen on this bath bomb in comparison to others I have used as I felt like it did nothing for me and my skin felt no softer than before I went in the bath.
Big Blue Bath Bomb (RRP £3.35)
“Big Blue’s key ingredient is a type of kelp called arame seaweed, which softens in your hot bath water. Arame is rich in vitamins and minerals including iodine, which helps to regulate the metabolism. Sea salt softens the skin, helping to remove dead skin cells, while lemon oil clears the mind and, like lavender oil, is antiseptic and cleansing.”
I absolutely adore this bath bomb and have bought it on quite a few occasions, it turns your bath water into a gorgeous teal blue which you would see in tropical countries. As soon as you step into the bath it feels soft, but can get quite slippery so you have to watch your stepping. This bath bomb smells amazing it has to be one of my all time favourites, it also leaves my skin feeling soft and i’m left feeling relaxed. Though when the bath bomb melts it is a little strange as kelp is floating around in the bath and does not melt but this is not off putting, I definitely need a whole tube of these.
Dragon’s Egg Bath Bomb (RRP £3.35)
“Dragon’s Egg makes bathtime exciting as it fizzes and crackles and changes the colour of your water to a gorgeous citrusy gold. Its scent is reminiscent of lemon sherbet, with a hint of jasmine, leaving you feeling great and ready for a good day. Its citrus scents leave you feeling transformed and invigorated.”
I really liked this bath bomb from the description when looking for others online so I decided to purchase it, I was not disappointed. It looked absolutely amazing in the bath, when the bath bomb was fizzing and changing colour it reminded me of cinder toffee it looked great with all the golden colours. Due to the name ‘Dragon’s Egg’ I was excited to see what it contained, when the bomb started dissolving you could see the inside which was like a red/orange colour. There is also bits of glitter packed into the bath bomb which was left behind in the bath when all the water is drained, what is good about this is it is easy to clean out.
Charity Pot 10g (RRP £1)
“A rich and generous cream that not only helps your skin to look its best, but also adds a glow to the small grassroots charities we work with, as all proceeds go directly to them.
With every purchase of Charity Pot, we donate 100% of the price (minus the taxes) to small, grassroots organisations that could use the helping hand to continue the incredible work that they do. Charity Pot supports organisations that align with our ethics in the areas of environmental conservation, animal welfare and human rights.”
Whenever I visit LUSH I always try to buy one of their charity pots as I love what they are doing to help charity, I keep meaning to buy a full sized version but I have so many of these 10g ones. This product is absolutely amazing for my hands, it leaves them incredibly soft especially with those winter months coming up.
