5 Top Lush Products & Valentine’s Giveaway

I’m not that new to Lush, I always buy a bath bomb before we take a trip somewhere with a soaking tub. BUT, I never really bought into the hype about most of the skin products. That is, until recently. I had the world’s worst break out around Christmas. It had been brewing for awhile, but it really went psycho. I don’t know if it was the stress of all the things going on around the holidays, my hormones playing mean tricks, or what, but a few things that found their way under the tree from Lush made a huge difference.

5 Top Lush Products

Herbalism Cleanser: I have dry skin, so I try to avoid using anything abrasive… but the almonds in this don’t seem to irritate my skin. I wash my face once a day at night (you know, to remove makeup and all that fun stuff) and alternate this every other day with a gentle cream cleanser. Keeps the dry skin flakies at bay, and keeps my face nice a clear.

Tea Tree Toner Water: I use this as a preventative on areas where I tend to break out the most (especially around the jawline and lower cheek areas.) I find it’s not as hydrating as the rest of my face needs, so I use a moisturizing toner elsewhere. I’ve heard that when you run out, you can mix the Tea Tree Toner Tabs with water and refill the bottle for much, much less and for the same benefits.

Grease Lightning Cleanser: This is supposed to be a cleanser, but I actually use it as a spot treatment. I really like it because it doesn’t make my skin peel and flake like Salicylic Acid or Benzoyl Peroxide does. It seems to flatten blemishes and dry them up within a day or two, depending on the severity.

Ro’s Argan Body Conditioner: Obsessed. This is a little splurgey for something I use in the shower, but I will definitely be buying this again. It smells so good (from what I understand it is the same scent as Rose Jam body wash, which I will also be picking up soon!) and it allows me to skip moisturizing post shower. My normally itchy dry winter skin is so much better this year, and I’m thinking it’s all due to this product.

Popcorn Lip Scrub: I mentioned this in my what I put on my face post, but this deserves another mention. It’s fabulous to use before priming your lips for lipstick, and I use it when I’m exfoliating my face with Herbalism. Plus, it tastes delicious and is actually edible (though I wouldn’t plan on eating too much of it, I imagine that would give you a stomach ache.)

If you’re new to Lush, I’m not the only blogger who’s obsessed. Check out Cat’s post on her favorite Lush masks or Kelly’s post on her beauty favorites. I definitely have a few of their picks on my list for next time!

    I’m a big fan of Lush too! I haven’t tried all that many products, but whatever I do try I love! Lush make this wonderful face mask (I can’t remember which one as I’m out of it at the moment) and it’s amazing! I keep it in the fridge and it makes such a difference in waking up and refreshing my skin as well as packing the moisture in! X

    Hello! As I’m single, I’m not doing anything for Valentine’s Day. It’s fine though. I’ll probably go out to eat with my best friend. Thank-you for this super fun chance!

    We’re doing an at home date night this year for Valentine’s Day. My husband is an incredible cook so he is going to make something for us and we’ll enjoy a bottle of our favorite champagne, Veuve Clicquot. It’s going to be a nice, quiet night. We both have a crazy week at work leading up to Valentine’s Day and decided that sounded nicer than fighting a crowd at a restaurant.

    Me and the hubby are staying in on V-day. I will make him his favorite meal (mac and cheese) and we will probably watch a movie. Nice and simple.

    Hey, thanks for the link, lady! I’m surprised you even remember I posted that :)

    I’m also surprised you loved the tea tree toner that much. I’ve tried a fair amount of Lush products, but really felt like that didn’t do too much for my skin that I could tell. I totally agree with you on the popcorn lip scrub, though. Obsessed!

    This one might not be as good for your skin of you’re prone to drying, but I love Fresh Farmacy for battling my acne. It’s seriously the best daily cleanser I’ve ever tried.

      I remembered because I added a bunch of the masks to my wishlist… and still have yet to buy them! Definitely doing that next mall stop. ;)

      See, I’m not 100% sure that it’s that particular product, but I find when I don’t use it I do have break outs, but it could be a coincidence as well. That’s the tricky thing about acne-prone skin since there are so many variables!

      I will have to try Fresh Farmacy, but maybe in the summer when I’m less dry. I’ve heard good things about it!

    I’ve never actually bought anything from Lush. I always walk past the shops, having a good look in, but I never properly look around, because they’re always so busy. I think next time, I’ll have to make an effort and fight my way through the crowds.

      They are always busy, aren’t they?! It definitely can be overwhelming, but they always have the most helpful employees if you have any questions, and they’re not as hard-sell as some shops!

    Good to hear that you like the Herbalism – I might have to give it another try! I got some for my birthday last year and used it all up. I liked it but didn’t find it did anything special for my skin. At the same time, i was having one of my worst ever eczema episodes and my skin was pretty gnarly in general, so probably not the best time to be evaluating products!

      Oh no! You’re probably right, but I do find that I can’t use it everyday since it does seem to be made more for oily skin than dry/sensitive like mine. I do like that it makes my skin feel soft and gets rid of the flaky bits though!

    I do not have any plans for valentines day as of now. I do not have a favorite Lush product because I’ve not used any but I am wanting to try the Big Shampoo. I’ve heard wonderful things about Lush. Thanks so much for this opportunity.

    This will be the first Valentine’s day since my divorce but I’m spending it will an old flame to see if we can rekindle the fire that we once had. It’s been 10 years and we both realized that no matter what life threw at us we never forgot about each other :)! We are planning on going out to a nice dinner and then maybe a movie.

    I’m not doing anything for Valentine’s Day – but the day before (Galentine’s Day), I’m having a little get-together with my sisters.
