Lush Review

I think Lush has become my best friend. I spend a lot of time with that store and their products take care of me. I wonder if it’s too soon to say “I love you”?

My skin has been feelings extremely nourished and clean thanks to some of Lush’s top facial products. One of them being their Breath of Fresh Air toner. I’m not one to apply unnecessary potions and lotions to my face, but when I tested this spritz in the store, it was love at first spray.60-Breath-of-Fresh-Air-resized

After I’m done cleansing my face (with Lush’s Buche de Noel cleanser), I pat my skin dry and spray a little bit of Breath of Fresh Air on. It feels like my skin can really breathe once I apply this toner. It’s made with fresh seawater and seaweed extract and smells like aloe vera and rose–just like the spa. I have to admit that I was a little unsure of Lush’s skin care line, but I’ve been totally converted. I am in love.

Not so long ago I tried the Honey Bee bath bomb which promises to soothe skin in honey and toffee scented goodness. I was a little underwhelmed with this one. I guess I’ve spoiled myself with Lush’s other, cooler bath bombs that change color and crackle and pop. This one was pretty tame.¬†LUSH-Bath-Bomb-in-Honey-Bee-Beauty365-PR

The color made my bath a milky, chalky kind of color and the scent wasn’t all that memorable. When I let the water drain out, there was some brown silt-y looking stuff at the bottom of the tub which I now know is Moroccan Rhassoul mud. This mud is supposed to deep cleanse and soften your skin. So that’s kind of cool. But to be perfectly honest, I don’t think I’ll be repurchasing this one.

I’ve always been kind of put off by Lush’s bubble bars. I liked the idea of them, but I didn’t like how they looked. To me, they look like dried Play Doh sculptures–not pretty. However, they smell amazing and work beautifully.

Compared to regular liquid bubble bath, bubble bars reign supreme. You use them by tearing off a piece of the bar and crumbling it under your running bath water. The more you mix and slosh your water around, the bigger your bubbles get. Big Hollywood movie bubbles! I love it! karma1

I used the Karma bubble bar. Lush has a lot of products that have the name Karma  because they all have the same spicy patchouli fragrance. This bubble bar in particular is nice because you can get a couple uses out of it. It also gave my water a little pop of color and made it feel nice too. I would definitely suggest this product if you like treating yourself to a cozy bubble bath every now and then.
