My first dip into Lush

I visited Lush yesterday and felt the urge to buy but had no idea what to get and was overwhelmed by the choice. I spoke to a male Sales Assistant and decided I wanted to pamper myself so I chose the following and tried them all out last night....

First I used the free sample of Angels on Bare Skin Cleanser, I received a generous amount and think it will last me around a week if used once a day. I loved the almond smell and the concept was fun, you put a small amount of the dry product in the palm of your hand then add a small amount of water and use to cleanse your face. It also mildly exfoliates and I would definitely repurchase this. The full price is £5.95 for 100g.

I then used the Moon and Sun Steamer Tab to open my pores. It cost £2.50 for one small 7g tablet. Although I enjoyed using it I don't think I would re-purchase as I'm not sure if it really did anything apart from get me a bit flustered through the steaming process. It also had a lavender fragrance which I wasn't keen on.

My favorite item was the Brazened Honey Face Mask. I have normal skin which is slightly oily on the T-zone and felt this product balanced my skin. It cost £5.50 for 75g and it will probably last me around 6 uses. I was advised to store it in the fridge as well. I love honey and this smelt absolutely delicious. I was originally advised to try the Love Lettuce mask but as it smelt quite strongly of lavender so I asked for an alternative.

Finally I asked for a facial spritz which I could use at work to freshen my face during the day as I tend not to reapply makeup. I picked up the Breath of Fresh Air Toner which cost £3.75 for 100g (shouldn't that read 'ml'?). Although I like the actual product the mist itself isn't fine enough and it leaves large droplets on your face which isn't really practical when you don't want to reapply makeup. I think I'll be using this at home and at the moment I'm not sure if I would repurchase.


Overall, I'm pleased with the Lush products I bought and am very keen to try more, I feel a new addiction developing!

Have you tried Lush? Can you recommend any products?


  1. I think now it's coming up to christmas that I will definitely have to take a trip to lush! The breath of fresh air sounds really nice! x

  2. It is really nice but I keep it on my dressing table rather than in my bag as the spritz isn't fine enough for use during the day, I'm still on the search!
