I went to Lush on Saturday and participated in their cruelty-free kisses event. Although, I declined to kiss the shirt, because I think that is degrading not only to the employee but to the customer as well. The store I went to was super small and in an odd triangle shape. There were six employees milling around, so it was cramped with only a couple of customers. When I entered the store, I was greeted by an employee who was eager to please. She gave me two hand massages to try out two different cleansers. Se even freshly cut up the amount of cleanser I wanted. I was disappointed to only get a month and 1 week supply of cleanser. If I like it, I’ll get a big tb when they get a new shipment that delivers cleanser that is good for three months.
If I order it online, will it be good for three months? Or could I be purchasing something only good for a month?
Anyways, I did not find the smell of the store overwhelming like others have been telling me it would be. It smelled a little herbally, but nothing too intense. It was just a light scent that my brain ignored after a minute or two. I snagged a mini hair product and went directly to sniff all of their soaps. I surprisingly didn’t like any of the cult favorites and settled with an unlikely pretty bar that I was able to cut up into five pieces. I might half them though. They seem big still. I preceded to sniff a majority of the massage bars until I found one that was pleasing. I didn’t know it was edible at the time! I went to cash out and tried the lip scrubs while I waited. I added my favorite one into my bag. I didn’t know about samples. I will make sure I request them from now on. These are my items from my Lush haul.
I have been using this for a couple of days and have been loving it. It reduces irritation and hyperpigmentation redness, not to mention it controls my face from becoming an oil slick. I enjoy the texture that is creamy, but I can still layer the clay on thick. It works with my Clarisonic and I don’t mind the little seaweed bits either. It smells good to me, too. At first, it smelt a little fishy, but now, it just smells calming and fresh. It comes in a sturdy clear container. I wish it came in the black pots as advertised.
First off, I think the packaging is very fancy. The lip scrub is in a glass container, which is quite big in person, not for on the go. It smells overpowering of Junior Mints; however, it is missing a chocolate taste. This really only tastes like peppermint. The scrub has grip and sticks to your lips, but I do wet my lips by licking them first. The scrub is moisturizing with healthy oils that are not too heavy on the lips. I do not find that this makes a big mess or has a lot of fall out, but I do only take a pinch fo each lip. I enjoy licking it off. Some people are grossed out about eating flakey skin, but cells flake internally all the time like your cheek cells and esophagus. It isn’t going to kill me or make me sick by doing it.
I really like how big this massage bar is and the smell is heavenly. It smells like cinnamon and/or nutmeg with a dash of honey. Again, I do not smell any white chocolate at all. I have not tasted this bar, so I cannot tell you what it tastes like. I love the honeycomb design on the top of the bar and the shape of the bar as well. I look forward to trying out this massage bar the next time I shave my legs. I did not notice this melting in my hands when I handled it and I store this in a sandwich container for now.

I really wanted to try a dry powder shampoo, because most dry wet shampoos do not work on my hair aside from Tresemme. That dry shampoo stinks off hairspray though. This dry shampoo smells strongly of grapefruit and lime. In my opinion, the best of the citrus scents. It seems to be a very fine powder and I cannot wait to try it.
First off, I love what this soap looks like. It’s a minty-oceany blue that attracted me to smell it. Once I smelled the pepperminty salty soap, I was in love. It smells just like the mintiest of gums. I have not tried it yet, but I am excited to. Hopefully, I am not sensitive to it.
That is all I purchased at Lush. Have you bought anything recently at Lush? Feel free to comment.
