Last week I was kindly invited along to Lush Sauchiehall Street to celebrate 20 years of all things Lush; along with making my own bath bomb, I was kindly sent away with a lot of products some of which were sample sized. Rather than bombard you with lots of product reviews I thought I'd share a collection of mini reviews and recommendations in one blockbuster post, pencils and papers at the ready!
Lush Chou Chou I Love You Toothy Tabs £2.65 -link.
A totally new concept to me, solid tooth paste! To use you simply chew until you create a foam like consistency and brush as normal. A great concept and something I could get on board with in a more traditional flavour. The Lush Chou Chou I Love You Toothy Tabs have a Rose or Turkish Delight taste and this is something I couldn't get past. I do like that they are natural and contain not only cleansing ingredients and also a natural antiseptic to keep the mouth, teeth and gums in tip top condition but I would need to find a more mint based solution.
Lush Ocean Salt Face & Body Scrub £7.75 - link.
I have reviewed this in full here - link but for those who'd prefer a more condensed version - this soft, lime scented body scrub gently but effectively exfoliates and moisturises the body. I have yet to find a body scrub that I enjoy nearly have as much as I do this, the only downside is that I find I use a lot per use and it doesn't exactly come cheap. If I could only recommend one product from this post it would be this, it is probably my favourite Lush product ever and the easiest way to create soft, silky skin.
Lush Powdered Sunshine SPF15 £6.95 - link.
A clever idea and one that I could truly get behind if the SPF factor was a little higher, none the less it is a great solution for those who hate the texture of cream or oil sun protection. As an added bonus it can be used on the head to protect the scalp, brushed onto the face to set make-up and of course protect. I rather enjoy that it features a little shimmer to add a little radiance to the skin.
Lush Life's a Beach Chowder (Oxford St Exclusive)
This is the one product that has left me feeling a little conflicted, I like the idea of a dry scrub in which you can choose the intensity - apply directly on damp skin for a deep scrub, or combine with water for a softer approach. However the scent is a little bizarre, part aquatic and part coconut - it should work but in my opinion it doesn't. On the plus side it does look exactly like sand.
Lush Dream Cream £11.95 - link.
A gently moisturiser that soothes, calms and hydrates, the simple formulation was created for irritated and broken skin such as eczema and similar conditions. It takes the sting out of sun burn, settles itchy and inflamed skin (some use it for chickenpox), all thanks to the wonder ingredient oats. I wouldn't use this daily but I do think it would be a good idea to have a pot on stand by for hives and general skin inflammation. A surprise hit.
Lush Pop Corn Lip Scrub £5.50 - link.
A sugar based lip treatment (along with sea salt and coconut oil), that gently buffs away dead skin for softer lips and in some instances temporarily fuller lips. It is entirely edible and does all it sets out to. If you don't like the taste or scent of Popcorn/Caramel avoid, otherwise it is a great lip scrub.
I consider myself to be pretty well versed within the Lush world of cosmetics but I am forever open to any product recommendations. What is your go to Lush product?
