We all love a bit of Lush, and I’m sure we all have our favourite products! Since working there I’ve had the upmost pleasure in learning even more about my favourite Lush products. So I thought, why not tell you guys what my favourite products are (in no particular order) and why! You never know, you might just be reading about your new favourite thing.
Rub, Rub, Rub – Shower Scrub.
Rub, Rub, Rub is a beautiful shower scrub that contains rich mineral sea salt that not only is a beautiful exfoliant, but it’s also an antiseptic. So it’s perfect for soothing and rejuvenating your skin. With added lemon oil you can use this beauty in your hair to give it extra volume, texture and a beautiful, healthy shine that it deserves. I first tried this about a year and a half ago, and I’ve been obsessed ever since. I adore the soft velvety feeling Rub, Rub, Rub leaves on the skin and can never get enough of it. The smell is incredible and almost ocean-like. It’s an extremely luxurious shower scrub that will make you feel amazing!

Sunnyside Bubble Bar.
Do you ever feel like you’re bathing in pure melted down gold? Do you ever feel like a mermaid when you have a bath? If not, then you need Sunnyside reusable bubble bar in your life. Sunnyside has beautiful lemon oil, tangerine oil and sweet wild orange oil to lift up your mood and enrich your day. But if that’s not good enough, it even has plastic free gold lustre which makes it look like Neverland’s magic lagoon has relocated to your bathtub. I remember the first time I saw this bubble bar in action – it’s safe to say that my mind was well and truly blown. It’s one of my favourite Lush products because of how surprising and unique it is. It makes me very happy whenever I use it.

American Cream Conditioner.
My hair has been through hair hell over the past few years. From constantly cutting, dying, styling, drying, curling, straightening and penultimately not brushing it. So it obviously needs some TLC just to ensure I don’t go bald within the next five years or so. American Cream is a delicious smelling conditioner that contains fresh strawberries that are rich with vitamin C that help cleanse the hair. Honey water for the antiseptic and soothing aspect for the hair. And of course, lavender and clary sage that will sooth and calm the scalp. So if you think your hair needs a little bit of TLC with a rich and nourishing conditioner, why not give American Cream a go?

Mask of Magnaminty – Face and Body Mask.
This is my ultimate favourite product that Lush has ever made! Mask of Mag is full of peppermint oil which stimulates the skin and blood flow, perfect for breakout prone skin. It also contains honey water, primrose and aduki seeds to cleanse and gently exfoliate the skin. All these ingredients combined leaves you feeling uplifted and your skin feeling flawless. All you have to do is leave it on for about 5-10 minutes, gently rinse it off with a warm wash cloth and Bob’s your uncle! You can also pop it on the rest of your body if you’re like me and get random and annoying spots and breakouts elsewhere on the body. I’ve recommended this to all my friends and so far everyone has loved it. If you fancy giving this beautiful face and body mask a try then definitely pop into your local Lush store or look online and grab yourself a beautiful pot!

Sultana of Soap.
This soap is one of my ultimate favourite things from Lush! It smells like clean washing thanks to a mixture of dried currents, dried cranberries, dried apricots and olibanum oil. This not only makes for a gorgeous smelling product but it also leaves you feeling moisturises and beautiful after every use! Sensitive skin? Dry skin? Young or old skin? This soap is perfect for everyone! And one of the many reasons why I love it so much. If you’ve ever tried Blackberry Bath Bomb or Catastrophe Cosmetic Fresh Face Mask and loved the smell of them, you’re guaranteed to fall in love with this beauty of a soap. It shares the same sweet and fresh smell as both Blackberry and Catastrophe Cosmetic. So why not give it a try, and see what you think of this stunning gem? I promise, you won’t be let down!
Retailed at £3.50 – 100g.
The Comforter (Shower Cream).
Who doesn’t want to smell like a they’ve been dipped in fresh and beautiful black forest berries every time they jump in the shower?! My favourite shower gel/ cream Lush do is The Comforter. It’s absolutely stunning with cassis absolute (the source of that blackcurrant aroma), uplifting and cleansing bergamot oil and moisturising almond oil for the skin AND HAIR! This really does smell incredible and really stimulates your senses. I feel warm and comforted (forgive the pun) every time I use this shower cream and honestly, I can’t get enough of it. It’s such a popular smell, we actually turned it from just a bubble bar into this luxurious shower cream so it could be there for all of its fans. If you’ve tried the bubble bar but not the shower cream, why not pop into your local Lush and experience The Comforter first hand with all of it’s berrylicious scent.

Twilight Bath Bomb.
Anyone that knows me really well will know that I suffer incredibly badly with insomnia, and I’m constantly on the look out for something that will help me drift off to sleep quickly, easily and without messing up my body clock. Thanks to a combination of things, I’ve been able to target my insomniac hell by using lavender scented products. One of the most successful products that has helped me is Twilight Bath Bomb. Twilight is a beautiful bath bomb that is inspired by the change from evening into night – the colours change from being fairly bright to a lovely dark ‘twilight’ colour. It’s jam packed full of beautiful French lavender which is renowned for it’s part in aromatherapy to treat insomnia. It’s calming and helps clear the mind of any stress or worry from the day and makes sure you’re ready for your nice and snug bed at the end of the evening. The benzoin and tonka absolute are there to stimulate thoughts of warm creamy/ milky drinks that further help you sink into that much needed rest. If I could have Twilight scented everything, I would. But for now, just the bath bomb will do.

Coalface – Facial Soap.
My skin can be terrible at times! Especially in those awkward months were it’s just transitioning from warm to cold. My skin tends to break out and get super oily at times. I was trying so much but hardly anything was helping, then my best friend, Cerys, recommended using Coalface – a soap she used to keep her skin glowing. So I had nothing to lose and I decided to try it. Cerys, as usual was right! I really fell in love with this product and have been using it ever since! You can probably guess by the name alone that it contains absorbing and cleansing charcoal so that any oil on the skill will be sucked up straight away. It also has natural antiseptic rosewood oil to combat those nasty break outs, and of course sandalwood oil to give it that beautiful natural earthy smell. Not only will this soap help with any break outs on the face, but you can even use it all over! If you’re feeling like you’re at a brick wall when it comes to your skin, you should pop into your local Lush and see if Coalface is the one for you. You never know if you don’t try.

Charity Pot – Hand and Body Lotion.
This is one of the products Lush sell that I absolutely adore not just because of what it does, but because of what it helps provide for other people. It’s not just perfect for any type of skin, but we give 100% of the profit, minus the VAT to small grassroots organisations that would benefit from a little something extra. Not only does it have fair trade Shea butter and fair trade olive oil, but it also have a balancing, uplifting and antiseptic rosewood oil to sooth and nourish the skin.
I used this to help heal my last tattoo and honestly, it reduced the pain and discomfort greatly! This is definitely a perfect idea for a gift or a treat for yourself or your loved ones.
Retailed at £3.50 – 45g tub.
Eau Roma Water – Toner Water.
I cannot recommend this product enough! It’s a very gentle, soothing product that contains lavender water and rose water that will reduce redness, calm and soften the skin, as well as give balancing features to the skin. You can use this at the end of your night time routine and clear up any traces of makeup, cleanser or dirt on the skin, or you can use it to freshen up every now and then with a quick spritz. Since using this on my skin, I’ve felt so much calmer and my spots have reduced so much!
Retailed at £4.50 – 100g bottle.
Big Blue Bath Bomb.
To further experience being a mermaid in the bath, then you HAVE to try Big Blue! The sea weed inside is absolutely perfect for cleansing the skin and helping you drift off into the seas of Neverland. The fine sea salts soften the skin and act as a natural antiseptic so you will feel like Ariel herself when you embark on this Big Blue journey. Containing lavender oil to clear your mind from worries and lemon oil to uplift and cleanse the skin, you can’t really beat this beauty of a bath bomb. There are things you can’t beat, and Big Blue is one of them. We even make this beautiful bath bomb in our parties that we hold in Lush stores. If this sounds like something you’d fall in love with, pop into your local Lush and grab yourself a Big Blue, and why not ask about the parties we offer too! They’re super fun and so enjoyable for everyone no matter the age.

Buffy Body Butter.
Have you ever wondered if there was such a thing that helped with random outbreaks on the body? Or to reduce redness and the aggressive looking stretch marks? Well Buffy is here to slay those pesky concerns! I adore Buffy as it has both Shea and Coco butter in it which not only moisturises the skin but it also softens and conditions the skin like the badass Buffy is. It also provides that well deserved gentle exfoliant with ground rice and almonds which leaves you feeling utterly brand new. The lavender inside of Buffy is a great addition as it’s antiseptic and calming for your skin. Perfect to slay demonic skin when you’re feeling a bit fed up! It’s great for all types of skin seeing as it’s gentle, calming and soothing with very gentle and soft ingredients jam packed inside. I honestly love this product and couldn’t live without it.
