So I promised myself that when my student loan came in this month I wouldn’t spend it on unnecessary stuff yet here we are with a post on all the things I bought from Lush. I told myself that I needed to revamp my skincare routine due to not looking after it as well as I should’ve when I was in Malta, so I suppose the spending was justified! I spent around £53 including postage and packaging. Some of these products I’ve used before and had to get again, some are products that are raved about by YouTubers and I had to try for myself. I apologise for the poor quality of the following pictures x
Imperialis facial moisturiser (£13.95/45g) – this is a repurchase as I first used this a couple of years ago and I loved it! I have oily /combination skin and was having trouble finding a moisturiser that didn’t make my t-zone even oilier. It is very lightweight which I find to be perfect for oily skin and it is there to balance and brighten your skin. It is suitable for all skin types so I would definitely recommend if you do not know your skin type or new to Lush moisturisers.
Tea Tree Water (£4.50/100g) – this is another repurchase and a firm favourite of mine! I either use this sprayed onto a cotton pad to take off my makeup or just sprayed straight onto the face as it feels so refreshing. Tea Tree is antibacterial so it will keep your skin clean and clear. This was probably one of the very first products I bought from Lush like 6 years ago and I’ve not got a bad thing to say about it. I could not recommend this enough to anyone who was oily or spot prone skin.
Aqua Marina (£7.25/100g) – when I was looking to buy a new cleanser I was aiming to buy Herbalism but unfortunately it was out of stock so I decided to try this. It has seaweed in it which is supposed to absorb any extra oils on the face. There’s also Irish Moss in it which apparently helps to add extra minerals to the skin. The only thing that’s putting me off is the smell, to me it smells a bit like hair dye but I’ll give it a try.
Cup O’Coffee (£6.75/150g) – I have heard and seen so many amazing things about this mask! I usually buy the wee fresh mask but they need to kept in the fridge and only last around a week. This has a longer shelf life and has coffee beans in it for extra exfoliation. I’m probably most excited to try this!
Veganese (£9.95/250g) – I’m a bit more harder to please when it comes to the hair products from Lush. I have really thick frizzy hair and I feel my hair needs a lot of conditioner but the prices of the conditioners are a bit on the dear side. I thought I’d give the conditioners a try again as said it would have your transformed into a ‘more manageable mane’ which is what I’m needing in my life. It also claims to make you hair soft and helps to calm and sooth your scalp.
Jason and the Argan Oil shampoo bar (£5.95/55g) and Square Tin (£2.95) – I love the shampoo bars from Lush! I bought one for going to Malta and it lasted the full 4 months I was abroad, honestly unreal. I do find that the square tins are better as the actual shampoo bar tins are too small for the bar to fit in it. I would recommend buying a tin with it as you’ll get more uses out of it. The shampoo bar claims to give you shinier and softer hair but it smells like rose jam so that’s what sold me!
Hope this post was a bit helpful as I can totally understand that choosing stuff from Lush can be a wee bit overwhelming due to the choice available.
Until the next post,
