Over the past few years I've come to love Lush products! It personally feels like a treat to go into Lush and pick up something new to try out, whether that be for in the shower, my hair or from their skincare range!
With mainly natural ingredients and unique product ranges I'm often impressed with my impulse buys. So today, I thought I would feature seven Lush products which I've been using for the past few months! I hope you find something new to try!
Ro's Argan Body Conditioner
Ro's Argan Body Conditioner is a product I absolutely love from Lush. I've thankfully never had to buy it full size as many gift sets I've received for birthdays and Christmas have contained a small 45g pot of it. As the name suggests this is a conditioner for your body and is used in a similar way to hair conditioner, except you apply it over the body (it feels so silky on wet skin) and rinse it off immediately. This is a product to end your shower on as it leaves a light film of nourishing oils over the skin that soaks into the skin as you dry off, perfect for dry skin areas, ageing skin and to apply after shaving your legs. It also means you can skip moisturising once out of the shower if you wish! As for the scent, I would describe it as a subtle yet highly sweetened rose scent that I really do love and can't get enough of! It's also in the Rose Jam scent family if that helps any fellow Lush fans imagine the scent better.
If you want to make showers more luxurious or just care for skin more then I'd highly recommend trying this product!
Turkish Delight Roulade Shower Smoothie
Now discontinued, other scents available
£9.95/100g Kitchen Exclusive
Another fairly unique shower product here! This is almost a softer putty-like soap that can be rubbed over the body or used in small amounts lathered up between the hands and then rubbed over the skin. I initially liked the idea of this as the soft texture when dry is quite interesting and it's a nice alternative to using soap in the shower as quite often it can feel a bit too hard against the skin when using a new slice/bar. Unfortunately, the lack of lather, as in it was near to non-existent, and the fact that you do lose small pieces down the plughole meant I was slightly disappointed with this kind of solid shower smoothie. However, I am still tempted to try out the Orange Roulade shower smoothie come summer as I'm a sucker for any kind of orange scented product!

Love And Light Hand Cream
Hand creams are my thing so I'm always trying out new ones, however a pot of hand cream was totally new to me. Possibly not the best for hygiene reasons, dipping your fingers into the pot, however, I do like the lighter formula compared to most hand creams that could only really work in a tub. As for its hand softening powers this really is a lovely hand cream that hydrates and moisturises the hands without being sticky or hard to rub in. I also can't get enough of the uplifting summery scent, which is really pleasant and works well as a hand cream. If you suffer from dry hands or constantly wash your hands then this is a lovely hand cream to use!
Rub Rub Rub Shower Scrub
On my constant mission to find enjoyable shower products I came across Rub Rub Rub Shower Scrub and decided to give it a go. Not only do I love body scrubs but I love fresh smelling products, especially come Spring/Summer, so this product instantly ticked both boxes. Unlike other body scrubs this is quite a runny formula but quite gritty due to it containing sea salt, it also foams up as it's rubbed over the skin as it contains SLS, so it may not be for some, but for others it may be quite a nice hybrid shower gel come body scrub. I personally enjoy using this scrub as I enjoy a good scrub and find that the fresh aqua type scent really does linger nicely on the skin for quite some time. A thorough body scrub that's quite unique!
Honey I Washed The Kids Soap
I'm currently working my way through Lush's extensive range of soaps, which I use both for my hands and body. I personally find solid soaps to last much longer than their liquid equivalent and they work well for my normal to occasionally oily skin. Honey I Washed The Kids is a soap I've bought a few times now as it's creamy yet light in both formula and scent and basically does the job well. Scents for me are what make a soap enjoyable and Honey I Washed The Kids has such a pleasant honey mixed with caramel scent, perfect all year round. Soaps are also one of the most affordable and cost efficient products you can buy from Lush and I personally appreciate that you can decide how much you want to buy over 100g and then can cut it up once home so that it can be used both in the shower and to wash your hands with. I'm a big fan of Lush soaps, basically!
Five O' Clock Whistle Shaving Smoothie
I've never been one for shaving creams or foams, in fact I'm a big believer in actually using hair conditioner or just regular shower gel. But for the past month or so I've been using my first ever shaving smoothie from Lush... and I kinda' like it! Ideal for anyone with dry skin that finds shaving extra drying on their skin, as this is almost a shaving cream and body conditioner in one. A little goes a long way over wet skin and leaves legs or armpits with a light film of moisturising oils that soaks into the skin once out of the bath or shower. Very moisturising and does the job well over other shaving products I've tried. The slight problem I have with it is the weird scent to it... but from reviews I've read it seems to be a marmite scent; you either love it or hate it!
Honey I Washed My Hair Shampoo Bar
Lastly, a product I initially picked up when going on holiday last year because I wanted to cut down on the quantity of bottles I was taking with me and because I have an irrational fear of running out of shampoo and deodorant, so I go for solid forms that are compact and last months. For the most part I do wash my hair is SLS-free shampoo but when this type of ingredient is mixed with mainly natural ingredients I'm open to trying it out. This specific shampoo bar contains only 8 ingredients of which 6 of them are natural, so I felt it would be safe to use on my once fairly sensitive scalp. Of course using a shampoo bar is quite different from using standard shampoo, however, when lathered up they can work just as well at cleaning the hair and are not only travel-friendly but cost efficient, which I like. The scent of Honey I Washed My Hair is that lovely mix of honey and caramel, much like the entire range of Honey products Lush offer, and although subtle it's a lovely scent. I would say that conditioner is definitely needed after a shampoo bar as all shampoo bars are slightly drying on the hair, due to massaging your hair and because most shampoos tend to be drying. If you want your shampoo to last 3-5 months and not to take up much room in your shower then I'd highly recommend picking up a shampoo bar when you are next in Lush. I'd love for Lush to extend this range to conditioner bars as well!
I personally love reading Lush product reviews so I hope you've enjoyed this post just as much as I've enjoyed writing it.
