Lush is my all time favourite skin/haircare brand. They sell soaps, shampoos, shower gels, lotions, moisturizers, scrubs, masks, makeup with a natural, vegetarian (and often vegan) formula, meaning that they are great on even the most sensitive of skin. I have very bad eczema so I hate using any chemicals or scented products as I turn into a walking rash. Lush’s products smell so, so good with natural fragrance which many natural companies don’t have. These are some of the products I am using right now in my skin/haircare routine:
Angels on bare skin
This is a Face and body cleanser with Rose Absolute, lavender and chamomile blue ‘to even out skin tone and give a natural glow’. I was really impressed with this cleanser as my face was so cleansed and soft after use! It comes as a solidish cleanser, you just take a piece in the palm of your hand, mix into a paste with a little water and apply onto face. I think my tub is the smaller size and its lasting so long, it stills looks untouched! I would definitely recommend this for dry skin if you want a gentle cleanser. I’m not sure if this would work well with oily skin as it does leave glow on the skin.
Ro’s Argan Body Conditioner
I love this product! It is made with argan oil, cocoa butter, cupuacu butter, brazil nut oil and shea butter to soften and nourish the skin. You apply in to your skin in the shower after body wash and then gently rinse. At first I was a little confused with this product as I thought if I apply this all over my body it won’t last very long at all, but I found a way to use it that suits me perfectly. After I exfoliate my body I apply a pea sized amount to all my dry, problem areas like both sides of my knees and elbows, my ankles and wrists. It leaves a residue on your skin and I think its perfect to apply tan over as it stops tan from grabbing to dry patches.
Montalbano Shampoo Bar
When I started using Lush Shampoo Bars I thought it was the most bizarre thing ever. What do I even with do with it?? Its actually so easy and lovely to use. You simply rub them through your hair and they foam up, drenching your hair in suds. Oh yes, I forgot, they also smell AMAZING! Montalbano is made with fresh lemon juice, green olives and rosemary absolute to give your hair strength and shine. I love this bar and will definitely be repurchasing.
Serendipity is a shower soap formulated to use before bed to relax and unwind. It is made with a beautiful mix of lavender absolute, French lavender oil and chamomile blue making it smell amazing. If you love the smell of lavender I would definitely recommend this. Perfect for a pamper night ❤
Dream cream is a moisturizer formulated for dry eczema prone/ sensitive skin. I haven’t used this many times as I’m always scared of using new moisturizers with my eczema. I’m going to start using this over the next month and do a full, in depth review for those who also suffer with sensitive skin. Keep an eye out for it 🙂
Herbalism is another face and body cleanser, I have been using this for a long time now and it has never failed to impress me. Its a herbal combination of nettles and rosemary to balance and cleanse the skin. I love this as it leaves my face feeling so smooth and clean. It has almonds and rice bran in it to gently exfoliate the skin with each use! I’m not a huge fan of the smell but nonetheless its a great product.
Full of Grace
Full of Grace is an intensely moisturizing serum bar made with fresh portobello mushrooms, calamine powder, fresh rose petal infusion and murumuru butter. This leaves my face quite greasy and oily when applied so I like to apply it to my face a few hours before I’m about to have a shower, its lovely to leave on the skin with a hair mask in!
Bubblegum Lip Scrub
Last but not least; bubblegum lipscrub. To be honest I was a bit disappointed when I bought this product as I thought it would do a better job at exfoliating my lips, I find if I scrub too hard my lips become very sore and if I scrub too gently it doesnt do a great job at exfoliating them. I went out and bought other lip exfoliaters and learned that I found they were all the same, bubblegum was the best out of them so obviously I just don’t have a good relationship with lip scrubs 😂 (if anyone has any tips I would appreciate it) Why I love bubblegum is because it TASTES SO GOOD on my lips, literally the best taste ever. If someone could bring out a sweet that tastes like this I would buy all of them! Seriously. If you like candyfloss you will love this.
