I’ve only used Lush products for the past 2 years or so, but I’m a huge fan already. I can’t take a bath without a bath bomb or a bubble bar because it feels too boring or plain. If I run out of products, I’ll shower instead and dream about the numbers of products I’ll buy on my next trip to the Lush store. Before trying them for myself, I was under the impression I was allergic to them (like a lot of other beauty products) until I realised how beautiful and natural all of the ingredients are.
Generally, I only stick with bath bombs or bubble bars. I’m comfortable with them. I know what they do. I know I like them. So I never really ventured into the depths of what Lush has to offer.
It’s about time I dipped my toe into a wider range of products, so here’s my list of 2016 Lush hopefuls:
I’ve smelt Karma in the store before, and the smell is simply divine. I can’t explain it, like a lot of Lush smells, but you’ll have to trust me on this one. The smell is renowned as one of Lush’s most beautiful scents.
Then, you add that scent to a soap… you’ve practically got yourself a winner right there. You can find it online here.
“Razzle Dazzle” Bath Oil:
Bath bombs, bubble bars, bath ballistics… but no bath oils. Razzle Dazzle is bright pink and I can only imagine how beautiful and soft a bath oil leaves your skin after a bath. I can’t wait to try one.
Bonus: the bath oils are really cheap too! You can find it online here.
“You’ve Been Mangoed” Bath Oil:
Another bath oil, but this time it’s one that smells like mangoes. I’m sure you understand that a mango scent is reason enough to try this product. I love mangoes.
This product is highly reviewed to leave your skin feeling ultimately smooth. So, let’s summarise: a mango smelling bath oil, soft skin, mangoes, cheap, mango. You can find it online here.
“Tender is the Night” Massage Bar:
Massage bars can be used for moisturising or massaging. It’s not completely in the name. These products can also be used by two people, for romantic massage moments etc. etc. etc. I’ll leave that one to your imagination.
Tender is the Night… what a lovely name for a product. I’d give it a go solely based on the fact that it’s a tool for massages and has an inviting name, if I didn’t already know this product smells like vanilla and jasmine. Beautiful. You can find it online here.
“Bubblegum” Lip Scrub:
I wear a lot of lipsticks, but I never scrub. Scrubbing your lips is supposed to allow for the perfect base for lipsticks and glosses, by getting rid of all that dry lip skin. A lip scrub that tastes like bubblegum is just an added benefit. You can find it online here.
“Mask of Magnaminty” Face Mask:
Face masks were actually the first Lush product I’d heard of. Although Lush are arguably most famous for bath bombs, I was heavily into Instagram at the time I became a “lushie” and face masks were all the rage.
Mask of Magnaminty is a fresh, green face mask that smooths, stimulates and leaves your skin glowing. I’ve only heard positive things about this mask, and it’s something I’m eager to try for myself because I’ve got super sensitive skin.
Any facial product that promise to not leave my skin sore, red and dry is something I’m willing to try. You can find it online here.
Cruelty free and vegan – apart from Mask of Magnaminty which uses honey. It always put my mind at ease knowing the products are sourced ethically and are natural.
Have you tried any of these products? Which was your favourite?
