I'm A Total LUSH!

Okay, well maybe I am not a Lush... but I promised in my last post that I would talk about my new Lush products... so here we go!  First off, Lush is not your typical store.  It looks like a deli to me.  Everything is out in the open and hand made by people of natural products.  This was my first experience in the store.
There are very few items "pre-packaged".  Its hard to explain... but even there shampoo looks like a big bar of soap!
I only bought the ocean salt but ended up with a couple when I left. Ocean Salt.  (Left in pic). This stuff is amazing!  It is bright blue - and it exfoliates better than anything!  She did an example for me in the store and my hands were softer than they have been... ever!  It can be used on your entire body and your face.   Then... a sugar scrubber came for free. (right)  You break that apart and put it all over your body for more exfoliation and softness!  The last thing you see is a sample of their make-up remover moisturizer.  I didn't buy it at the time because I didn't want to over spend... but it is awesome.  You use it dry - and you rub it over your eyes, and it takes off all of your make up. I still need to test it for a little longer to make sure it doesn't affect my sensitive skin!  

Give Lush a try if you walk by there store.  If anything, you'll leave smelling good! :)  What are your favorite products?

We have Lush in London but I haven't been in there for a long time.....I must go! I need a new scrub and the one you tried sounds fabulous.

I know what you mean about it feeling like a deli....it does all look and smell good enough to eat!

Happy Week-end!

I got some of their product for a gift and love the smell of it. Haven't used anything for my face because I have sensitive skin too, so let me know if yours breaks out or not. That would be a good tip for us. ;)

P.S. I can't wait to see the new award! So glad I could inspire you - you inspire me daily sweetie! XOXO

Have an amazing weekend love!

I've passed by Lush, but I've never actually gone in. I might have to now!

Life Abroad said...

Lush is all over the Netherlands, so much so that I always wonder if it's a Dutch company? Anyway, I've never been in, but you've convinced me! That Ocean Salt sounds incredible!

Fashion Moment said...

We don't have it in Belgrade, I think. :(

Julie@beingRUBY said...

OH LUSH is fabulous. I love their stuff.. I do though have to be careful of which essential oils they use as I am a headache/sensitive skin person too. But if I choose carefully ... I'm in heaven!!! Great post .. and thanks for your lovely comments!

I love Lush! It always smells so nice when I walk in :) I have only tried one product from them though, I'll have to try the ones you mentioned.

Piper Jacquelyn said...

I went to a Lush counter/store in Chicago once, but there isn't one anywhere NEAR Omaha, so sad! I loved it though. I wanted to eat everything, it looked so good, haha! The next time I am nearby one, I will be taking a few products home to try for sure.

I used to love their wares when I was back in the states. Can't seem to find it here in Hong Kong though...

Jules said...

I got to visit a Lush store for the first time last fall in Atlantic City and loved it. The Ocean Salt and make-up remover moisturizer sounds fantastic!

I used their charity pot lotion and loved the smell of it. It was really great on my hands and all of the proceeds went to charity.

i have a friend that swears by this brand. i'm especially wanting to try the dry shampoo.

Kristen Sara said...

I am obsessed with L'Occitane. I use Aveda products for my hair (I think anything Rosemary Mint just smells like heaven) but L'Occitane for everything else.

Girl With The Golden Touch said...

I have been obsessed with Lush for years now.

My fave things are the bath bombs - Sex Bomb is my fave! - and I just bought the Joy of Jelly this week!

I love Lush! Ocean Salt is my absolute favorite. It actually exfoliates without feeling like you are tearing your skin off!
