We all know Lush for its famous bath bombs, which are the subject of many Instagram and YouTube posts but Lush has much more to offer than the fizzy, one time use, colourful spheres.
Here are my top 5 products from Lush that aren’t bath bombs and as I used to work there you can trust that these choices really are some of the best.
9-5 Cleansing Lotion
This cleanser is amazing, It is one of my beauty must haves as it gets rid of the most stubborn make up without feeling ‘chemically’ , and yes I’m talking waterproof mascara and gel eyeliner too. The seductive smell makes you feel like your in a spa and the cool texture leaves your skin soft and fresh, it also doesn’t hurt if you get it in your eyes.
Smells like – Buttery Fresh Linen
£9.95 – 240g
Lemon Flutter Cuticle Butter
This is the best cuticle butter I have ever come across and as a beauty product lover I have undoubtedly come across a few in my time. Lemon Flutter starts out with an almost exfoliator like texture, which reminds me of tiny, tiny pieces of crushed meringue, when rubbed in it then turns into a lemony oil which leaves your nails nourished but not soft.
I use this before painting my nails and leave it to soak in for 5 minuets before applying polish. Somehow nail varnish seems to grip on easier to the nail after using this and also leaves a neater and shinier coat of polish for the rest of the week.
Oh and It also seems to last foreverrrrrrr.
Smells like – Lemon Meringue
£6.95 – 50g
Massage Bar – Soft Coeur
In my opinion the best massage bar out of quite a large collection. It may be one of the smallest but Soft Coeur has the bonus of a self heating chocolaty centre and this texture mixed with the creamy buttery outside makes it a crowning champion. The whole bar has a more sensual quality to it than the rest and really transports you into a world of relaxation, as your muscles and skin seem to relax into themselves.
Smells like – Spicy Chocolate Herbs
£4.95 – 30g
Pink Peppermint Foot Cream
Whether it’s a from a massive shopping spree, training for a fun run or wearing regrettably high heels we have all had days when our feet throb in beat with your favourite ballad.
We try and stop the pain. Feet in a bucket of hit water or maybe that clunky foot bath you got last Christmas and hardly use or maybe like me you once even rubbed paracetamol gel in between little sore toes.
Well thankfully after I discovered Pink Peppermint Foot Cream and my feet have never been so grateful. It has a slight tingling sensation from the peppermint but not enough to feel like a deep heat or menthol sensation. It makes your feet feel new again and the good enough to eat smell carries across the room. Its the type of product that makes you want sore feet so you can have an excuse to use it.
Smells like – Chocolatey Pink Heaven
£12.95 – 225g
Elbow Grease Moisturising Bar
This moisturising bar has a really interesting texture, it comes in a semi hard bar but when spread on your skin glides on without any sign of a struggle. It feels quite cool on the skin and melts on to it like an oil yet isn’t too liquid or wet. It is also a tattoo brightener and although I have no tattoos ( yet) I know from experience from working at Lush that it really makes a difference , as I used to demonstrate it on to tattoo customers all the time.
Smells like – don’t remember so obviously not a key feature
Basket Total – £40.75
Totally worth it.
