Recently I have become a bit of a LUSH addict so I wanted to introduce you to a couple of their products that I love right now.
After the bleaching etc. my hair has been through lately, LUSH’s natural shampoos and conditioners have been welcomed with open arms. As you can see the shampoo bar which I bought about 3 months ago is still going – amazing Although it is on it’s last legs haha
Of course it does depend on the size you buy but when the woman told me that the bars last so much longer than regular liquid shampoo I wasn’t so sure…but it’s true!
That’s probably my 3rd pot of conditioner but everyone knows you use more conditioner. Even so, I would say they still last about a month which is pretty good…and when you collect 5 pots & take them back in-store you get a free face mask. Bargain!
Since using both of these, my hair is the best it has been in years. I am sold!!
On the subject of showers/baths…
The LUSH shower jellies always intrigued me so when my fiance’s sister gifted me with this one I was a very happy girly. I definitely think it will come in handy too, because this is perfect for jet-lag or general tiredness, and with my return to university fast approaching this will be needed
I have high hopes for it, if only for the smell alone. The smell
, oh the smell
, it truly is amazing. I can’t describe it but it’s so fresh and invigorating…it kinda reminds me of the fizzy sweets I used to eat as a child
Next up is something for the make-up bag.
I don’t currently use foundation as I am sure you’ve seen me mention. I did want to try out a tinted moisturiser though, so I shopped around at MAC and a few other places. However they were all either too dark or felt bad on my skin. So I popped into LUSH.
The colour supplements they offer are great because they can be used solely as a foundation or concealer, or blended to create a tinted moisturiser. I did some tests in-store and the palest of the supplements suited me best, no surprise there then
I’m not really a big fan of natural make-up products but this is very good. This feels so much better on my skin, it’s sensitive and it doesn’t break me out. I also love that I can create my own shades & consistencies by mixing it with a moisturiser.
And last but certainly not least…
I once had a member of the LUSH team treat me to a hand-massage at a TopShop lock-in (with the ‘strawberry feels forever’ bar)
, and the rest is history. I was so hooked by the smell and the softness of my skin afterwards that I had to have more!
I’m always pestering my fiance to give me a massage, because it helps relieve everday aches & pains, and is very
relaxing~ So when I showed him the ‘massage bar’ section in The Lush Times
, he went out and bought me one. Awww
The one above smells like Vanilla, and it’s so gentle on your skin. As soon as you hold it in your hands it starts to melt into your skin, but don’t worry it doesn’t really
melt. You just work a little into your hands, or onto your victim, and massage away. This one is always supposed to be a bit of an aphrodisiac though, so watch who you use it on haha
I really love
how LUSH use natural, vegetarian ingredients in handmade products that aren’t tested on animals…because believe it or not, there are still some companies that do nowadays
Not only that but their products are good on the body and smell awesome!!
