It’s Lush review time! I usually take some time to write up big product reviews like this but not with Lush! I have tried just about everything here and I’m ready to talk!
First up, the tins. I purchased both the Shampoo bar tin and Body butter tin. At first I wasn’t sure if they were really necessary… then one super soggy shampoo bar later… I realized they are! Yikes. Luckily, I’m awesome and managed to save my shampoo bar without any problems! Needless to say, lesson learned… use the tin (with the lid).
So, since I mentioned the shampoo bar. Let’s talk hair. I got three products for my hair : Dr Peppermint, Snake Oil Scalp Treatment bar and No Drought. The Dr. Peppermint bar was the item in the soggy shower bar incident. It’s a great shampoo bar. I was really unsure about how I would like it but I actually love it and definitely plan on trying more shampoo bars because of it. My only negative is that my bar isn’t pepperminty (real word? sure…) at all. When I think peppermint I think PEPPERMINT! I want tingling, can’t smell anything else but the craziest peppermint fragrance ever experience when I’m showering… I didn’t get that at all. Hmm… As for the Snake Oil Scalp Treatment bar… still working on liking this. It reminds me a lot of Wen hair products and actually smells similar to one of their hair treatments. Unfortunately, I do not like Wen. (I know I’m one of the rare people.) But, I definitely want to keep giving this bar a try because it did make my hair feel great just a little oily. Lastly for the hair, I got No Drought. I had some doubts about this one. A dry shampoo that’s white and in a squeeze bottle? Seriously? But woah! I love it! I’d even venture to say that it’s my favorite dry shampoo! I have dark hair and it disappeared without a problem and didn’t leave my hair feeling gross. It did weigh down my hair a little but that’s only natural of dry shampoos. This is a keeper!
Okay, let’s talk toes! I got T for Toes and also Stepping Stone. T for Toes is a foot powder for shoes and just feet in general. My main reason for getting this was my TOMS… boy, they are… “fun”. Ha. Anyone with TOMS, that wears them regularly, knows what I’m talking about… This seems to help a little but I’m still not sure if there’s any hope for my poor TOMS! As for the Stepping Stone, I’m definitely loving it! It’s a great scrub and my feet always feel amazing! My only problem is that it’s a very delicate bar! It even says on the site to make sure you don’t get it wet… okay, Lush come on? It’s a bar for the shower yet don’t get it wet… it’s impossible. Needless to say I got it a little wet and it’s horrible when that happens so be warned. Keep it a good distance away from the water! I actually keep mine outside the shower completely now.
I’m almost done… kind of. Next up, I purchased Buffy which was actually recommended to me by Lush on twitter. (Have I mentioned how I LOVE companies that use social media to talk to customers?! The marketing major in me just melts when companies actually pay attention to their followers!!!) Anyways, I gave this a try and it’s a win! I’m not big on using lotion in general. I always find it greasy and a pain but this I can do. You use it in the shower and it leaves your skin feeling amazing after you’re done! I’ll definitely be putting this to use this winter! And one of the last things I purchased was Dream Steam which I actually have not tried yet but can not wait. Lush’s instructions are : “Fill a medium-size bowl with very hot water and drop in a toner tab. Immediately drape a towel over your head and the bowl to let the steam deliver its anti-oxidants and vitamin-rich essential oils to your skin. Once the tab has finished fizzing, remove the towel and gently pat your face dry. You can put the water from the bowl in a spray bottle and store it in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. Use it to spritz tired skin whenever you need a lift.” I need to get to using this as soon as possible!
Lastly, I got a little sample of the Waylander Rhassoul. I had no idea what it was so I decided to read some of the reviews on their site. They could not have been more true. It’s a great mud bar which is moisturizing and definitely lathers well. But, my tiny little sample barely gave me enough to even try it in one shower. It’s smell is wow… interesting and it’s definitely a messy one! Overall, not sure if I’d ever try this exact mud bar again but I’m definitely still open to the idea.
So, with all this rambling over… have you ever tried Lush? If so, let’s hear the recommendations because I need/want/must try more!!
