I don’t think I’ve ever posted about Lush products and that’s because I’m a bit skeptical about their items. When Lush debuted in the U.S., it hit YouTube and the beauty blog world hard; and, I, just like everyone else, jumped fiercely on the bandwagon and went Lush-crazy briefly. A short while later, I didn’t find the products worth it because it got expensive. While the products did smell good and their brand philosophy was appealing — spending $7+ on a bubble bar that could be used once wasn’t cutting it for me. The face products made me break out and itch, and the body and hair products were mediocre and expensive for what they were.
With that said, I took a long break from Lush products because no matter into how many pieces I cut up those bubble bars, I didn’t find the products worth the money. I recently re-visited Lush mainly just out of curiosity. I noticed some changes — new products and scents, and the packaging was more detailed with the ingredients listed and directions (finally) on the tubs. I spent some time exploring and walked out with an interest Shower Smoothies. I later returned to purchase it in Dream Wash, and I’ve been using it for about two weeks.
Directions: Smooth all over your wet body in the shower, let the luxurious oils and butters go to work softening and cleansing your skin, and then gently rinse away.
Featured Ingredients: Calamine Powder , Water (Aqua) , Organic Aloe Vera (Aloe barbadensis) , Rapeseed Oil , Coconut Oil (Brassica napus; Cocos nucifera) , Glycerine , Sodium Stearate , Sodium Hydroxide , Rose Absolute (Rosa centifolia) , Chamomile Oil (Anthemis nobilis) , Tea Tree Oil (Melaleuca alternifolia) , Lavender Oil (Lavandula hybrida) , Sodium Chloride , EDTA , Tetrasodium Etidronate , *Linalool , Perfume
With calamine and chamomile, this is very soothing and gentle; and, the natural oils make this smell absolutely divine. It looks odd — kind of like mushy clay. I scoop some into my hands and then apply it to my body. It feels like adding lotion to your wet body and then washing it away; and, it smoothes, moisturizes, and cleanses your body all in one. The scent doesn’t linger, which is a bummer because it smells good. But this is great for when you’ve been out in the sun, or you’ve been itchy, or if your skin’s been irritated because it’s been dry.
I really like this, but I have a feeling that this won’t last long (like many Lush products). For $22.95, I’d hope to get a few months use since this is body wash. But, it takes so many scoops to cover your entire body since a little bit doesn’t go a long way. Since the product is not designed to lather, you have to keep returning to the tub for more scoops. I’ve had this for nearly two weeks and I’m pretty sure it will last another two weeks. Meh.
