what’s up! As we are approaching the final days of 2017, I decided I wanted to write a few blog posts! Today I’m going to share with you some of my favorite Lush products. Lush is all natural cosmetic brand that I fell in love with the moment I received my first bath bomb from it as a birthday gift. After that, my Lush love only grew and I collected more and more products, branching out from bath bombs to bubble bars and face masks and shower jellies! This summer, I even visited the biggest Lush in the world, on Oxford St in London! I’ve tried a lot of products and I want to share with you some of my favorites and how to use them!
1. twilight bath both
Twilight was the first Lush product I ever used and made me fall in love with the comapny and brand. First of all, this bath bomb is absolutely GORGEOUS in the waters. It is all sorts of colors, from purple to pink to a soft blue, great for bath art. Next, it smells so so good, like musky lavender, perfect before bedtime. And finally, it makes the bath super silky, leaving your body smooth and soft!
This is the only Lush face mask I have tried that has truly worked for me and clears up complexion quickly. Others have also kind of worked but were too harsh, oily, tight, etc for me. This mask not only smells delicious (minty, herby, chocolate heaven) but feels super cooling and soothing. The only thing I would say that’s perhaps not so great is it is a little bit thick and hard to spread. (see full review here)
Another bath product that smells delicious and is also beautiful in the water is the Shoot for the Stars bath bomb which is unfortunelty an xmas product, but nonetheless a favorite of mine! It smells like honey and makes the waters a gorgeous blue, leaving little stars everywhere!
On to shower gels products… I love the twilight shower gel. It has the same musky lavender smell of the bath bomb it’s named after and also possesses the same luster and mysterous color, a deep, stunning purple. This is one of my favorite scents from Lush and I love the shower gel!
Okay I lied, this is my ALL TIME favorite scent from Lush. Before you set off on a rose jam buying spree (there are a ton of products that share this delicious smell), not everyone loves Rose Jam. It’s very sweet and floral which I love, but isn’t for everyone. This shower gel is so good because it not only smells delicious while showering, it stays on your skin for at least 3 hours after. * quick note: I think rose jam and twilight are both seasonal, but can be purchased through gift sets all year round (how I get them)*-please correct me if I’m wrong haha.
Sharing the same scent as Rose Jam, and a year round product, Ro’s Argan is the next best (or better thing). It’s a body conditioner which may sound weird at first, but it is used on your body the same way you condition your hair. After cleaning your skin (with Rose Jam perhaps?) apply to your skin and lightly rinse off, leaving your skin soft and fragranced for the day! This is a wonderous product and always leaves my skin smooth.
I did do a full review here, but just wanted to put this on my favorites because, while I thought it was too wobbly then, I’ve learned that squishing some into a wet loofah and then applying is the best way to do it while still having fun and making bubbles! The crisp apple smell is the best part!
This wouldn’t be complete without my favorite bubble bar! I love the Creamy Candy bubble bar because it smells super sweet and makes huge bubbles. It makes the waters a light pink color, so I enjoy adding another, more exciting bath bomb in with it!
As a dancer, let me just say, my feet aren’t pretty. They are rough, calloused, and bruised from hard work in pointe shoes and bare feet. So let’s just say, pumice power was a savior! It’s the perfect texture, a rough moisturizing solid, to pamper my feet after a hard day. Bonus: it smells like fresh orange! They do go by fast, so buy a few to stock up!
Finally, you can’t have Lush with out their world famous soap! Lush started out as a cute little soap shop, people mistaking their wheels of soaps for exotic cheese. This is my favorite soap because of it’s colors and zingy, rejuvinating scent. Ladies (and Gents) I present to you…. Outback Mate
It’s stunning visually… and don’t even get me started on the scent! I love using this soap to impress guests. After washing their hands, or going to the bathroom, they often ask where I bought the “beautiful soap.”
Thank you for reading and I hope you have a great rest of the new year and enjoyed learning about my favorite Lush products!
