Lush in general
For any one who reads my reviews often, you'll know how I love writing about Lush products and sharing my experiences whether they're good or bad, I also like to include a paragraph about Lush as a company, so I thought if I write a review in general I won't have to do that any more and it might convince a few of you to start buying a few products from them every now and then.
Lush buy only natural ingredients or synthetic ingredients if it means they don't have to hard any animals on our planet, they also only buy their ingredients from suppliers who refuse to test on animals, animal testing is a big issue in today's society so it's important they show they are strongly against this, they try to use the most natural ingredients they can because it means it is better for our skins and we are not applying layers of chemicals that could potentially harm us rather than help us. They have re occurring ingredients in a lot of their products, all bath ballistic bath bombs all have Sodium Bicarbonate, This is what makes them fizz and swirl in the bath, this is the same ingredient used to biscuit cookies to make then crack was they bake in the oven. They also use a lot of citrus scents in their products such a slim, lemon, mango and use a lot of body moisturizers in the actual product, so as you get out the bath or shower your already moisturized but you can still add more to make it even better!
Lush specialize in bath, body and hair products but do of course sell others as well, they sell bath bombs, each bath bomb has a particular purpose whether it's to moisturize, make you relaxed or even get you in the mood, they have made it. Bath jellies, these are very strange and didn't even know what these were at first until I read a review on here! These work the same way as bath melts and similar to ballistics, you simply pop all these in to your steamy hot bath and watch them melt and these act the same why as ballistics, they have moisturizing and relaxing ingredients. Also for the bath they sell something called a bubble bar, Lush don't like to use packaging when they don't need to, they have managed to make a solid bubble bath! You can break the bubble bar down with you don't want you bath more bubbles than water, it also means you can get a good couple of goes out of one bar, they also sell a wide variety of soaps to suit you.
Again, they try to use less packaging or none if they can, Lush have made shampoo and conditioner in solid bar forms as well, but you can also still buy these in liquid form too, each one had a different purpose, whether it's for greasy, dry or hair that breaks, they have made it!
The range they have for the body still amazes me that you can buy everything you'd possibly need from one store, this has massage bars, body tints, this is for people who are white, but refuse to wear fake tan, this has lots of moisturizer in it too, dusting powders, these are basically fragranced body powders, like baby powder. Body lotions, moisturizers, butters, shaving cream and deodorant.
It doesn't just stop at these three categories, they sell gift boxes filled with lots of products for just £10, lip products such as scrubs and lip balms, they also have a lot of spot control products and perfumes.
Lush try to use a s little or no packaging if they can get away with it, which is why they like to convert some of their liquid products in to solid form, this is because, when you buy online, they often send their products 'naked' this is when the product isn't covered in plastic or packaging, they send anything in a cardboard box, and inside instead of bubble wrap they use plain popcorn, this is because if you throw it out, animals will just eat it or it is biodegradable anyway, also paper and cardboard is very easy to recycle, but if you don't, again it is biodegradable. The majority of their items don't have any packaging, but the ones that do are in plastic or glass.
Lush online have a section called 'retro' this is where certain discontinued lines that are in high demand are still for sale, you cannot find these in store at all and they may well make these to order to keep them fresher and lasting longer, this is brilliant, because if you miss a special edition, a few months later you might be able to find it in here.
In store, most things are 'naked' on the shelves, these are the solid bars, like bubble bars, ballistics, shampoo and conditioner bars. This fills the shop with amazing scents and I love going in here just to smell it! Unfortunately there isn't a Lush close to every one, I'm in Grimsby and as far as I am aware the closest one to me is in Sheffield, which is annoying, but the staff in there are very lovely and welcome you with a smile, if you are unsure on what anything is, they're always happy to help and give out testers if you are unsure on a product.
The prices are not always pretty from Lush I have to admit, a shampoo bar is over £5 and considering you can get liquid shampoo for £1 it doesn't seem worth while at all, but when you work out how long Lush products last, to how long normal products last, Lush saves you a lot of money in the long run so it is actually worth while buying from them, plus with all the natural ingredients making it even better for your hair, face and skin.
