If you remember, I hauled from the LUSH UK site some weeks back. I'm doing some quick reviews now while I'm waiting for my Hsuan Wen Hua Hair mask to adequately soak into my dry processed hair. First of all, I am in LOVE with LUSH H'Suan Wen Hua. Initially I was disgusted with the scent. It really stinks but I'm loving it now. It's sort of an acquired LUSH scent, if you get what I mean.
First of all, don't make the same mistake of putting this hair mask on wet hair. It's meant to be on dry hair and it's more effective. BUT, you'll go through super quick. I've used it 3 times already. I'm already half way through this jar, unbelievable. It's expensive too.
It's totally amazing because your hair will feel lightweight and SUPER soft. It doesn't have any silicones so with it doesn't feel that soft when your hair is wet. But after blowdrying, you'll see the effects of this totally amazing hair mask. The effects last for a few days too!
Make sure you keep it in the cool or refrigerator, as it's got a pretty short expiry.
Next, Rockstar soap... This stuff is so fragrant I can even smell it from my bathroom. It seems to go faster than my Honey I washed the kids. Probably because it's softer in texture. No it doesn't create pink bubbles but the scent totally eases any tension or stress. Taking Lush showers makes you feel like a little kid again. I'm loving it and will probably purchase more of it when I run out.
Honey I washed the kids soap is one of my most favorite scented soaps period. I bought one for my colleague when I was in India last week, knowing that she didn't have any access to this godsend soap. She was hesitant to use it at first because she didn't have a soap dish. But she reported back when she reached home after a horrible and long day - she's in LOVE!
Buffy is a hit and miss for me. It's very moisturising with its shea butter but it's super greasy as well. After rubbing it on my 'cellulitey' areas, I rinse it off in the shower, which leaves my floor super slippery.
It melts really easily too which isn't great in the tropics. I rather keep to using my Body Shop Olive Scrub for super soft smooth skin.
Angels on Bare Skin is a bit of a hippy skincare cleanser to me. I've never used solid face cleansers before, yet alone one that is filled with beans which leaves my sink in a little bit of a mess. It's strange to use at first because you need to take a small chunk, mix it with some water (just a little), knead it till it becomes a paste then smother it all over your face for cleansing and exfoliation.
I've used it for 2 weeks in a row now. It hasn't broken me out. It seems to give my skin some radiance too. But unfortunately, it only has an expiry of 3 months. Well, I'm halfway through my cleanser (yes, I wash my face quite often when I'm traveling in India due to the pollution). But I must tell you, I got the shock of my life when I visited the LUSH India store. They were displaying the Angels on Bare Skin with no container and there were flies flying in and out. I was so grossed out I had to tell the shop assistant to do something about it because it's disturbing that they're unhygienic about products that you put on your face! I'm certainly glad that I got it directly from the UK store.
That's part 1 of my LUSH reviews. Part 2 will come when I get more use out of the other products.
I hope you found my reviews useful!
