3 Lush Products I’ve Been Trialling

Wooden Window Sills 3 Lush Cosmetics Products I've Been Trialling 1

I’m a long time lover of Lush Cosmetics.

For as long as I remember I’ve been drawn into the heady scent drifting down the high street, and lured in by the temptation of their bath bombs and face masks. No matter which store you enter you can guaranteed to be welcomed by a smiling staff member who seriously knows their stuff about the products, and probably uses many of them every day themselves. How many stores can you actually say do that?

I don’t need to wax lyrical about their commitment to animal cruelty free and environmental sustainability, the likelihood is if you’re reading this you are already aware how far they go to reduce plastic waste, and protect the world.

Therefore, as I was in the mood for branching out beyond my all time favourites, I thought I’d go in with an open mind to trying something new. Naturally, I actually came out with 3 new Lush products, and a couple of repeat purchases. I just couldn’t resist.

Wooden Window Sills 3 Lush Cosmetics Products I've Been Trialling Yuge

1. Yuge Hot Oil Hair Treatment

The process of Yuge was fun – mixing the stick into boiling water and slowly slowly transforming it into a thick treatment to slather onto dry hair. The whole thing has also lasted me three sessions, as well as giving Adam a go too, with a little left to spare. I’m glad it lasts a while! If I’m honest, of the three Lush products, this is my least favourite, but that may be because I already have pretty thick hair, so I didn’t notice any extra thickness, and I don’t love the slightly minty smell as much as I love other scents that Lush do. However, it does undeniably give you a good condition, and I enjoyed the process and how long it has lasted.

2. Jason and the Argan Oil Shampoo Bar

This hair product, on the other hand, is the opposite. I can’t get enough of the smell! I’ve loved shampoo bars ever since I went on my gap yah to India, mostly because they freed up space, and avoided the inevitable shampoo + luggage = disaster. Usually sticking to the other tried and tested bars, this was a new discovery for me, and boy do I love it. The scent is incredible, it lathers beautifully, and leaves my hair feeling fresh and shiny. Definitely one I’ll be buying again and again and again!

3. Sleepy Moisturiser

If any Lush product had had more hype in 2017 I’ll be amazed. I’m definitely not one to usually jump on the bandwagon, but with this I was so keen to try it. I love that it’s not too lavendary, but gently sweet and subtle. I’m lucky that I sleep pretty well anyway, but each night I’ve smothered my arms chest and neck in this I have woken up feeling refreshed. I now keep the pot by my bedside to remind me to complete my wind down routine before my head hits the pillow!

Overall I’m chuffed with my Lush purchases, and will be adding most of them to my usual repertoire. I have given each of them a good test out, having bought them  way back when in November, with the intention of posting only when I’d seen a fair trial. Nothing worse than a blogger recommending a product that they’ve used once. Next time I’m in town, I’ll be heading back to Lush and maybe even giving a few other products a whirl in the hope of finding yet more favourites! 

 

 

  • I have in the past found some of the lush smells rather overpowering but I also got the sleepy moisturiser and I agree it’s got a lovely smell!! It also means i actually moisturise my neck!
    Might have to try some of their hair products at some point :)

    • I love their shampoos, they are brilliant it has to be said! I also really love their face scrub Dark Angels and some of their soaps. As I don’t have a bath currently the bath bombs are a bit lost on me! xxxx

    I have asthma so going into Lush isn’t as fun for me as for most people. But I do love their fresh face masks and their soap bars. I’ll be checking out the hot oil hair treatment next time I’ll go to Lush!

    • Oh no! Do you tend to order online then or just grin and bare it? I’d never really considered that it could affect you that badly. The hot oil for your hair has such good reviews and there are certainly a few different ones! xxx

      • AboutKari (Karolina)

        I always cover my face when I walk into the store and I prefer to see the products with my own eyes rather than a picture.

        • Totally agree with you, and the smells are so different in person sometimes to how you imagine them from the descriptions. Xxx

  • I’ve tried the sleepy too! I also sleep pretty well but it’s a nice smelling moisturiser! x

    • Totally agree! love the smell of it so it doesn’t matter if i would sleep well with or without it! At least it reminds me to moisturise each night! What are your other usual Lush favourites? Im always up for recommendations! Xxx

  • The sleepy lotion is so incredible! I use their shower gels (my favourite being plum rain) and I also use their toothpaste capsules! x

    • Ooh I’ve never tried plum rain! Going to go in on Sunday and get a few new bits so I’ll be sure to give it a sniff! Have you seen their naked packaging-less stuff? Genius! I love the idea of toothy tabs but i am allergic to a lot of different toothpastes and sadly they’re one of them! Any other favs that you love?

  • Yes!!! I love Lush products – there’s something about lovely bath products that make a pampering weekend worthwhile! I also love he body scrub as it leaves skin super-soft and smooth so I’m always happy to see their products featured on blogs even though it makes me want to go and buy more haha!

    • We currently don’t actually have a bath *sob* so I’ve saved any specific bath products until we do again, I can’t wait!! But I’ve also not tried their body scrubs yet I don’t think, which would you recommend? Xxx

  • I love hearing about new Lush products I haven’t tried before. I’d been wanting to try out one of the hot oil hair treatments for a while but might give this one a miss. That Sleep moisturiser would be perfect for the routine I’m trying to get myself into before bed. Anything to make me feel more refreshed in a morning would be a dream!

    • I’ve seen others absolutely rave about Yuge so its worth a try! Sleepy is a really lovely one for smell association, every time I open the pot now I get just that, sleepy! 😉 xxxx

  • Lush in the sale as well is always the best. Stocking up on aaall of the products (not that there is much left now) haha! X

    • I completely missed all the sales everywhere this year as we’re trying to do a now spend January, but I’ve seen some people get some amazing bits in Lush so I wish I’d let myself just have a peek! 😉 xxx

      • I actually think they *still* have a fair bit… Worth popping in to see :) xxx

        • I will entirely blame you if I end up spending all my hard saved cash 😉 xxx

    I went a little mad in Lush on Boxing Day, but it was 50% off! I’ve not tried these three myself. I like the idea of the hair treatment as my hair can look a little frazzled. I also sleep well so haven’t tried the sleep moisturiser, but if you’ve still noticed a difference, I think I’ll give it a go :)

    • Wow I’m not surprised you went mad if it was 50% off! What did you buy yourself? xxx
