So this is my third LUSH post and lets face it, who doesn’t like to smell like unicorn farts and rainbows lol.
There are a few musts for me, starting with Breath of Fresh Air face toner at a cost of £8.50. Now this is a great product for reducing redness and cooling the skin, it is also my favourite ‘face hack.’ In short, this is also a pretty good make up remover and a great quick fix for freshening up through the day.
And as we are talking multi use, I have to talk shower jelly! This is a strange product that reminds me of those goo pots children play with lol. I personally use it as a hand soap but it has a much more devious use… coaxing my Son into the shower lol. Yes, he is of THAT age where he’d rather stink than wash, so this makes for a good bribe lol.
Me personally, i stick to the shower gels and creams. The Comforter (£12.95) being a particular favourite, mostly because the strength of the scent means I can smell it on my skin after showering… heaven! Don’t Rain on my Parade being a close second. This is a ‘green’ violet. Fresh and rain soaked, not the candy violet you’d immediately think of. It’s a great morning shower gel.
I also like to use as part of my routing, LUSH lip scrubs. If I remember right they are roughly £4.50 and a little goes a long way. I have big lips and they need a good polish lol. Highly recommended! And for those who are a big fan of Snow Fairy, The Kiss is very similar.. a mixture of Raspberry and bubblegum. I also use their Popping Candy lip scrub, which I believe was a limited edition. It’s still going strong, so these products have a great shelf life. Popcorn scrub, for the curious… smells exactly like!
Finally my last skin must have is LUSH ‘Love Lettuce’ fresh face mask. This is a soft grain face mask that also exfoliates. 15 minutes of looking like Slimer from the Ghost Busters, and you are good to go! This needs to be kept in the fridge and has a short shelf life… but leaves my skin soft and ‘glowey’ (yes I know that isn’t a word lol)
The only downside to LL is the smell, it is Lavender heavy. I’d like to have this smelling closer to its namesake. But this is a multi fix must have!
One last note, for those who recycle, LUSH have a take back scheme.. take 5 empty full size pots/bottles back and receive a free product. Great stuff!
