Lush Cleansers

Sorry I don’t have any pretty pictures, all my cleansers are all crazy mixed together anyway…

Aqua Marina – I bought this because my skin had redness before and I was looking for things to take down the redness cuz it has calomine in it. It’s a more gentle cleanser that can be used every day, but in certain water conditions it doesn’t rinse off well! And it will look like you have a pink mask of film still on your face [I guess this happens if you have hard water], and then you’d need toner and a cotton ball to remove it.

Fresh Farmacy – This one I bought because of the calomine in it as well.  It also has tea tree oil in it, which is good for acne, so that’s why when I wash my face at night I use both the FF and AM. I use FF on my t-zone because it is oily and FF can get drying and AM on my cheeks. I also added more tea tree oil to my cleansers, because I don’t think the FF on it’s own has enough tea tree oil to prevent acne. But now I’m experimenting with just putting tea tree oil in my toner [which isn’t Lush, it’s Alba Botanica]

Angels on Bare Skin – This is something I use when I feel like my skin is dried out. It’s moisturizing and also has ground almonds to be a gentle exfoliator.  I don’t use it all too often, but I think it’s nice to have around in the winter.

Dark Angels – I basically use this for more hardcore exfoliation. Some of the pieces of coal in there feel sharp and it’s hard to rinse off too! At least that has always been an issue for me. Sometimes I mix half DA with AOBS and that works better.

Coalface – I just have a sample of this. I don’t really really have a use for it, but it would be good for someone who doesn’t want to go through the whole process of using the “squidgee” cleansers. It could eventually be drying to the skin, I’m not sure, but that’s what I hear. And I think it smells good too. I kinda wish I could use it, but I would probably just be buying it just to buy it haha.

Those are the only one’s I’ve tried! Let me know if you have any questions!

Oh yeah and for all the cleansers, I wouldn’t buy more than $5 at a time so that you can use it up during the 3 month shelf life. When I was a noob to Lush I got a $12 dollar tub of AM, and it takes forever to finish!


LUSH Has Crack In It!

At least that’s my theory for why people go GAGA over this stuff! And now I’m one of them! This is my haul, I only got two things cuz man….it’s expensive haha

From lush1

I got the Aquamarina cleanser and Mange Too massage bar!

I’ll describe the massage bar first. It’s a bar of solid cocoa butter, that melts from body warmth so you could use the bar directly on the body to massage or let it melt in your hands and then apply to body. I got it because I wanted something super moisturizing to use on my legs, so that when I bare my legs in the summer they can shine in the sun hahah. I picked this one especially because it smells like white chocolate…well I guess all their massage bars smell like white chocolate since they are made out of cocoa butter, but the other ones had other flavors mixed in too. And I can smell something else in the Mange bar and I couldn’t really place my finger on what it was, but I read later that it’s supposed to have peppermint in it so I guess that’s what it is. It smells so so good! I got my mom to try it out too and she liked it 🙂 i dunno if I would trust it though as a moisturizer on its own [like on dry skin], but it should help lock in moisture after a shower or if you layer it over lotion. Oh yeah and the Mange bar seems like a better deal for the price cuz they are all around $7-$9 and the Mange was $9.75 for 3.5 ounces and some bars are like the same price, but much smaller.

Now onto the Aquamarina

From lush1

So being a Lush noob, I didn’t realize this wasn’t a soap when I bought it and when I went to use it I expected soap, but it’s really more like clay. On the Lush forums they describe these roll types of cleansers as “squidgy” haha. It doesn’t lather whatsoever, and you kinda just rub the stuff across your face and it leaves behind a white film and the film is kinda hard to rinse off! Like..actually really hard to rinse off. Not everyone has this experience though so maybe if I exfoliate beforehand then it can’t stick to my face, so I’m gonna try that out next. A lot of people will describe the scent of Aquamarina as fishy, and I guess I can see how they would think that, but mine doesn’t smell fishy to me, but more like it came from the ocean, probably due to the seaweed. The clay part smells like old lady floral, but I don’t hate it! I think I’m getting used to these weird, natural, LUSH scents. It’s really addicting!

I recently came to the conclusion that I have sensitive skin, after thinking my whole life that my skin wasn’t sensitive. But then I started thinking why is my skin always red or pinkish? And then I thought maybe my skin is sensitive or even has a mild form of rosacea. That’s why I picked out Aquamarina because it’s supposed to be soothing to sensitive skin and reduce redness because of the calamine in it. So far I think it has helped with my redness. A con though is I can see how it could be drying since one of the main ingredients is kaolin clay, and the first time I used it I really had a problem rinsing and my skin ended up feeling tight later. I want to try Dark Angels next! The sales associate recommended it to me, but they sold out at the store I went to.

LePooke did a video about how if you order LUSH from the UK it’s cheaper cuz they price their stuff a LOT cheaper over there for some reason. Maybe over there it’s really normal to buy lush like, “oh it’s just LUSH” haha I dunno!

So there you have it, my new obsession. Please help me so I don’t buy up the whole store!
