Often Overlooked Lush Products

Often Overlooked Lush Products

We've all skipped to Lush with visions of pretty bubble bars and bath bombs in our heads but have you ever stopped and paid attention to the other Lush product lines? There is so much more to Lush than candy scented bath treats (not that I begrudge anyone treating themselves to a soak in the tub, it is rather blissful) and with that in mind I have gathered up a few, often forgotten about Lush product recommendations.

Lush Soap
Lush soaps are not only visually beautiful, smell divine but are more often than not loaded with skin nourishing and treating ingredients. The great thing about Lush soap is that it tends to be multi-purpose; some have been formulated for the face and body, others to cleanse and exfoliate the skin and there is even a few variations that you can wash your hair or treat your hands with. Genius. As it is a solid product it travels well, can be cut at home into smaller sections and is one of Lush's more affordable product lines in general. Every home should have a bar of soap, why not make it a beautiful chunk from Lush?

Lush Shampoo Bars
Not only environmentally friendly as there is no packaging but economical too, one Lush Shampoo Bar equates to two 500ml bottles of liquid shampoo. There is pretty much a Lush Shampoo Bar for every hair type, colour and condition for that matter. Yes they take a little while to get used to but are worth the switch for voluminous locks, not to mention they remove product build up like no other all the while being kind to the hair and scalp. It goes without saying that the bar format travels well and doesn't take up any space in a case, and as it is a soils you don't have to worry about liquid limitations when at the air port. I realise this is a little unconventional but I really rate Lush Shampoo Bars as make up brush cleansers, they remove even the most stubborn of foundation stains with ease.

Lush Massage Bars
In my opinion Lush Massage Bars are the underdog of the Lush world, not only can they be used to treat the body and mind to a massage but they are essentially solid bars of body moisturiser. Lush Massage Bars once warmed turn into a quickly absorbed body oil that deeply nourishes and conditions the skin, with next to no mess. Again being a bar format you can cut into smaller chunks for travel or storage but you can also melt them to create treatment oils for the hair, bath or to scent the home. The uses are almost endless.

Lush Lip Scrubs
There was a time that I deemed Lush Lip Scrubs over priced but the more I use them, the more I can not be without a tub. Each deliciously scented/flavoured jar is nothing more than a blend of sea salt, brown sugar and coconut oil so that they can technically be consumed - I dare you not to lick your lips when using one...I dare you. If like myself you are prone to dry flaky lips this gentle scrub will quickly remove all traces of dry and dead skin without irritating, all the while moisturising the lips. Yes it is a little on the pricey side but it does deliver and one tub will last for months on end.

What would you consider to be an underrated Lush product?

  1. The facial cleansers and toners! Love your blog btw :) x

  2. I love the concept of this post, I do tend to get distracted from these products by the colourful bath bombs. The shampoo bars sound like an amazing product and as do the massage bars.

  3. Definitely the face skin care products! In particular their serums and moisturisers. Unless you're a real lush devotee most people skip right by them!

    I adore the lush soap bars but it's too hard to get them to lather up which frustrates me probably a little too much haha

  4. I love anything Lush, their product never disappoint. I don't think I have tried their massage bars but I really like the sound of them, definitely join to try one next time along with a new soap.

  5. The solid cleansers!
    I just repurchased Soak & Float from Oxford Street, it smells so much better and I've only used it two washes and I've already seen a big difference in my hair & scalp!
    I've also just bought one of the massage bars - it smells amazing.

    I've never used a Lush soap because my skin doesn't react well to normal soaps. Would you say they're more suited for sensitive skins?

    Love this post,

  6. The skin care line is blissful! I can't help but take a sniff first before putting them on despite of their appetising smell. Love this post, it makes people realise that Lush is not just about Bath Bombs only. xo

  7. I forgot about their lip scrubs but you're right, they're so good!

  8. I've only ever tried bath bombs and a lip scrub from Lush so I definitely need to branch out! The massage bars sound amazing :)

  10. so tempting to get a shampoo bar

  11. I agree with you about the shampoo bars- so weird at first, but they're really easy to use, and great for travel.
    And my favourite lip scrub is the mint julep one, SOO tasty!

  12. Their shampoos bars are amazing!! I´ve been using the NEW one and I love it! ^_^

  13. Love love love the solid shampoos!

  14. I love using the massage bars! I have the "from dusk till dawn" one and I also have one that they don't have anymore but it's so lovely and smells a bit like honey! I've had them both for ages! I also love their lip scrubs, the popcorn one is so delicious and feels just so nice on your lips! The shampoo bar is something that I really want to try! Do you have a recommendation for naturally curly hair?

  15. All of these picks are spot-on! Lush Lip Scrubs are incredible and their shampoo bars are so underrated. I absolutely love Seanick!


  16. Awesome post on informing others that Lush is more than bath bombs. I recently purchased BubbleGum Lip Scrub, Pearl Massage Bar, Ro's Argan Body Conditioner, and Sultana of Soap. I'm still hooked on their toner waters and masks, but I know that there's other products that give my skin what it needs to look and be healthy and radiant.

  17. I really must try the Lush shampoo bars - I've had my eye on them for ages but always feel a bit apprehensive about trying them out!! They do sound pretty good though!
