I got back from Paris a few weeks ago (I wish I was still there) and I couldn’t resist popping into Lush. If you need to know anything about me…it’s that I love Lush. There is something about the products that make me feel all warm and fuzzy. I think it may be down to the fact that after every operation I have had I always end up having a Lush bath after my stitches/staples are removed (I may one day discuss my health issues). So for me Lush is more than just products it’s a sign that everything is going to be okay. I got so deep then about some bath products but it’s true – Lush makes me happy.
Whilst I was in Disneyland Paris my New shampoo bar got ruined – I don’t think it liked the water at Disney (it was so salty!) so I knew I had to buy a new one. I popped onto the website and found that a large majority of their bars are suitable for Vegans (go Lush) . Whilst out in the streets of Paris we managed to find a Lush store (which was in a shopping mall, inside of a train station) I picked up Seanik (£5.95): which is full of sea salt, lemon and sea weed which helps with shine and volume. Perfect as I have fairly fine hair and struggle with volume. My current shower gel is also by Lush I bought it when I was in Prague for Christmas last year and it is on it’s last few showers. Whilst I was in the store I thought “hey why not pick a new shower gel” I went for Dirty which smells of peppermint – I wish I could read french so I could tell you what else was in it. I have looked for Dirty on the UK website however I can’t find this exact one – it may be on there under a different name perhaps. Both the shampoo bar and shower gel smell incredible! That is another thing that Lush do right – their products smell amazing!
I have known about Lush having their own make up range for a long time now but this was the first time I had, had a close up look. I was very impressed and was told by the French lady who served me that all their make up range is Vegan (not sure if the UK is the same) . On the rare occasions that I wear make up I like to go for a smokey brown eye and nudeish lips, hence why I picked the colours I did. Sophistique is a beautiful taupe cream eyeshadow, that glides onto the eye lid effortless it is also easy to blend. According to the website you can also use this as a bronzer/highlight, for me personally I will stick to just the eyes. The last product I got was Perspective which is a rosy nude colour that can be used on the eyes, lips and face. Again I will be using this for lipstick only. I have naturally pigmented lips so any lip shade looks completely different on me, with this I find it looks a little darker than described but I still really like it. Both products retail in the UK for £14.50. So far I am really impressed with their make up range and will be looking to purchase more at a later date – keep an eye out on social media for pictures of me wearing the items.
Whilst James and I were checking out the lovely assistant offered me a sample of 9 to 5 (£5.25 for 95g)which is a make up remover milk that not only removes make up but helps to brighten the skin. I am yet to use this but if I like it I will be repurchasing as I am needing a make up remover that is Vegan and Cruelty Free.
Lush never test on animals, and a large majority of their products are suitable for Vegans, all their products are reasonable priced. I love giving Lush as gifts, as well as receiving Lush gifts. I really need to get my hands on some of their Halloween and Christmas items before they all sell out. What’s your favourite Lush product? Have you tried any of their make up? I would love to know in the comments.
