Advantages: smells lush ;-), good variety of products, most of them look nice
If you ever have gone into a Lush store you’ll know what I’m on about, aromas are flying everywhere. The first time I went in there was to buy my grandmother a (late!) birthday present.
My dad and I got her a pack of about nine different miniature soaps. I can’t really remember what they were, but one of them was Red Rooster. I’m not sure if she ever actually uses them as she prefers squirty soaps, but it’s the thought that counts.
For my eleventh birthday Kathryn Penguin got me a Lush ballistic bath bomb. She told me to write an opinion on it but I never really got round to it, so here I am!
LUSH JASMINE BALLISTIC BATH BOMB - 8 out of 10
This is a very girlie lilac colour with pink and purple sparkles. It lasts for just one bath. It creates a load of bubbles, which spread all over the bath. It smells very strongly of lavender, you can sniff it from as long as ten metres away when it’s in the bomb, but not as far when it’s exploded.
Once you have put it in it sizzles up then starts to dissolve into the water. It usually takes about five minutes or so to totally dissolve. When you climb out of the bath you are covered all over in glitter.
The glitter usually lasts about three days and rubs off with water and soap quite easily. It’ll leave you smelling something between lavender and fairy jasmine. I’m not quite sure how much this is, but I reckon it costs between a pound and two pounds.
CHOCO LALA MASSAGE BAR – 9 out of 10
This one is definitely my favourite. It looks and smells exactly like chocolate, with a little dot of white chocolate on top. All you have to do is rub it into your skin and it’ll look and feel smooth as well as smelling mildly of chocolate.
For a fact, this bar is actually made from real chocolate with some oils added. This one surely does look good enough to eat. (Warning – Keep out of reach
of young children and pets, they might think it’s edible.)
BEWARE – if you have pale skin, be careful to rub it in well, as it sort of looks like you’ve smeared poo on your skin :-( This weighs 60g and costs £2.65.
BANANA MOON – 7 out of 10
This is basically a chunk of yellow soap. It doesn’t smell too much like banana though, which is good for me, as I’m not exactly the world’s biggest banana fan!
It feels hard in the bar, but really soft on your skin. I think the smell is gorgeous but could do with being a little more powerful. I think it should last for a while. This weighs 100g and costs £1.40.
BLUE SKIES BUBBLE BATH BAR – 8 out of 10
This is much bigger than most of the bubble bath bars. It looks really pretty, just like a blue and white striped rainbow!
At first it is quite hard to crumble, I would advise to use about a tenth of the bar each time you use it in the bath. It weighs 200g and costs £2.50.
FLYING SAUCER BUBBLE BATH BAR - 6 out of 10
I found this extremely easy top crumble, which obviously has its disadvantages as well. It didn’t smell too bad, but surely wasn’t my favourite scent.
The lather this produced was quite thick and bubbly, which was good. It seemed to fill up the whole area of the bath, which was useful to, mind you, I did use twice as much as I should have (whoops!).
I’m not exactly sure how this is either much is but you can check the Lush website out for more details and information.
GENTIL LENTIL SHAMPOO BAR – 9 out of 10
This is brilliant, in my mind, in nearly every way. The lather it creates is thick and moisturises dry hair wonderfully. This is perfect for children especially, as when the soapy bits get in your eyes it doesn’t hurt.
It tends to rinse off easily under the shower (or sometimes saucepan in our case!). After this
, if you usually do, use a conditioner afterwards to make your skin super soft!
The only problem I have with this shampoo (which is why I only gave it nine) is that it looks like it’s got bits of your dinner in it and doesn’t smell too pleasant either.
This doesn’t make much difference as the smell washes off with the shampoo in most cases. This weighs 100g and costs £2.65, exactly the same as the chocolate massage bar, interestingly enough.
RED ROOSTER SOLID SOAP BAR - 8 out of 10
This is a red/orange colour. It smells very powerfully of cinnamon, which lasts on your hands for around an hour, but only if you sniff them up close.
The bar has some sort of fresh herb inside it, which gives it that hint of mint. Never minding how it looks or how it smells, this sure does the job properly. This weighs 100g and costs £1.50.
T’EO DEODORANT - 6 out of 10
This is a powdery solid deodorant. I’d never tried one of these before so I knew I’d have fun experimenting. There is a blue waxy bit underneath to hold the soap together, which you mustn’t use on your underarms, always use the powdery bit.
I don’t use this very often, as it hurts me when I put it on because it’s quite rough. This does last quite long and has a strong lemony scent, but I think I’ll stick to body sprays for now thanks Lush. This weighs only 50g and costs £2.45, which I find a little pricey, compared to high street shops.
I find Lush items are quite expensive for what they are, but that seems to be the only disadvantage for me.
Thankyou very much for reading and rating my first opinion on Dooyoo and I look forward to reading any comments you have left, bye! :-)
