Lush Chat 5

Hi, Hey, Hello!

So I have yet another review to start this week off and this time it’s Lush related. I somehow accumulated quite a few things that needed reviewing since my last one back at the beginning of March. And these are those things.

 

Rub Rub Rub Shower Scrub – Now I have been loyal to Soap and Glory’s Sugar Crush Body Scrub for a year or so now but change is always good and so I figured I would give this a spin to see how I got on with it. It’s a lot finer than Sugar Crush and while part of me thought that therefore it wouldn’t be as effective as the one that I was used to the majority of me acknowledged that it would. And it is. Very effective that is. It feels a lot less abrasive and leaves my arms and legs feeling silky smooth. It smells divine too as well, like a calming ocean breeze. The more I use it the more I fall in love with it, and I may or may not have bought another tub of it because this one is almost gone. And well spring is coming (I am still mildly in denial that it has arrived even after the past few days of quite nice weather because well, it’s England) so regular exfoliating is becoming necessary and also the scent might be the closest I get to the ocean this year so I’m gonna bask.

BB Seaweed – This mask led to a revelation to me. I don’t like face masks with bits in them. This one, funnily enough, I had seaweed in it and I wasn’t a fan. The after effects of the mask were a bit hit and miss, some weeks my skin felt soft and deeply cleansed and some weeks my skin somehow felt oily than it did before hand (I think I got about 5 weeks out of this). Also the longer it was kept in the fridge the thicker and harder to apply that it got, which could be my fridge, but it doesn’t happen with the more naturally runnier masks, so it might not be the fridges problem…I wasn’t a huge fan of the scent either. So on the whole this mask just wasn’t for me.

Cupcake  – Now I have seen this mask reviewed many a time in the past few years and they usually always rave about it. But every time I go to purchase it online it’s out of stock so I try something else. But I finally got my hands on it and well I get the hype. The smell is beautiful and applying it was a dream, mainly for the scent but also because it was so calming on the skin. It also had the best results once I washed it off as it left my skin feeling lovely and soft and combated this annoying oily t-zone thing that has decided to become part of my life. I will defo consider going back to this as it’s a close second in my Lush face mask rankings (because Prince of Darkness remains number 1).

Pumice Power – I don’t even really wear sandals and stuff all that much, I’m that weirdo that still buys ankle boots in the depths of summer and considers her summer shoes to be her grubby white Converse because, well, they’re not the black ones. But there is some part of me that enjoys getting rid of dead skin. This is easy to use and you can really feel it working as you rub across the skin. Then when you rinse it off your feet are all nice and soft. Plus the scent is a nice gentle orange-y one. I’ve used this quite a few times already and I still have loads left because a little goes a long way which is always good. Would definitely recommend.

Pink Peppermint – I just ran out of my Soap and Glory Heel Genius which had been doing wonders, but I was on the Lush website and got distracted by the word peppermint because I have a problem. The scent is beautiful though and when I use it after buffing away dead skin my feet are left super soft and sandal ready should I ever bother to get on that train. The consistency of it is perfect as well and I don’t need a whole bunch of it in order for my feet to feel moisturised which is always going to be a good thing.

And that’s another Lush review done. Hope you enjoyed it! Parentheses count: 3. See you tomorrow!

    I loved reading these reviews! I didn’t enjoy the BB Seaweed mask either. I’ve tried almost all of the LUSH masks now apart from Cupcake – I think Love Lettuce has been my favourite so far but I also love Mask of Magnaminty!

      I would strongly recommend Cupcake, and I did like Mask of Magnaminty when I tried it, I liked the fact that it was self preserving! I keep avoiding Love Lettuce because I find masks with bits in them to be a bit hit and miss for me, but I might give it a shot soon. Xx
