The Lush Snow Fairy Body Conditioner is a new release for the Lush 2016 Christmas collection.

Lush Damaged Hot Oil Treatment

Lush Damaged Hot oil treatment

The Lush Damaged Hot Oil Treatment is a new product created to help strengthen hair which is damaged from colouring, heat and excessive styling. Not only does it contain a powerhouse of moisturising ingredients including olive, avocado and almond oil, but it even has Kylie Jenner’s tick of approval (she used it recently in a series of Snap Chats sharing her pampering routine!) Although the product takes a little more work than your usual hair treatment, the results are exactly what I was after, smooth hair which feels hydrated and soft.  Continue reading

Lush Cup O’ Coffee Face Mask review

Lush Cup O' Coffee Face Mask

The Lush Cup O’ Coffee Face Mask is one of the newer editions to the Lush family. I know coffee is good for my soul, so the more ways I can get it into my system the better, right?! Loaded up with ground coffee, caffeine extract, coriander oil and agave syrup this face mask promises to exfoliate and invigorate the skin. I was impressed with how it did just that, along with being brightening and gentle. Continue reading

Help! My lips are dry all the time!

dry lips “Help!!! My lips are dry all the time!” was a recent comment on my social media from a lip-parched friend who is tired of having dry, sore lips all the time. My first thought was how strongly I could relate to this plea, after years on strong prescription acne medication having dry lips became the norm for me for awhile and it’s something even now I have to keep on top of.

There are 4 simple things you can do to help keep your lips moisturised and in good condition if just general dryness/chapped lips is your issue. If you are dealing with super dry lips as a side effect of medication or lip splits (cracks in the corners of your mouth) scroll down for some more aggressive treatments. Continue reading

How Not to use a Lush Massage Bar – a personal experience

lush Lush recently released a whole new range of yummy sounding and smelling massage bars. Despite being a pretty avid Lush fan I hadn’t tried one of these out before, in fact I hadn’t even seen one! I loved the idea of something being moisturising and massaging as well as just looking super cool. Turns out I may be the only person in the world who actually needs instructions on how to use it, but it has all turned out okay!

Washing my hair with lollies – New Lush Shampoo bars

shampoo bars I have always been intrigued by the idea of shampoo bars. After a lifetime of using the same kind of light coloured creamy liquid product to clean my hair I was keen to try out something new. The Lush Solid Shampoo Bars have a lot going for them. They are small and compact, self-preserving, without heavy and unnecessary packaging and come in a large range of types, scents and colours (just like lollies!) for every hair type. I’ll be honest here, it’s the range of bright colours and my favourite Lush scents that got me really excited. Also, did I mention that one bar can last you up to eighty washes? Continue reading
