Sequins and Sea Breezes: LUSH Reviews

LUSH Reviews

4/09/2014



If you're like me you're searching for that miracle product that will take you from dorky Anne Hathaway to Princess Mia as quick as possible. Unfortunately I'm pretty sure that product doesn't exist (at least not within my budget and I'm not really a fan of needles so...) but it's worth trying new things every once in awhile!

I recently read about LUSH Cosmetics from a few fellow bloggers and saw them on BuzzFeed's "41 Beauty Products That Really Work According To Pinterest" and became intrigued so I decided to try a few things out for myself. After searching their site and reading reviews I decided to give the Dark Angels Facial Cleanser and the New! Stimulating and Reviving Minty Shampoo Bar a try. All of LUSH Cosmetics are fresh, handmade and best of all not tested on animals.
So first up is the Dark Angels Facial Cleanser. This was the product I saw on BuzzFeed and that really got my curious about LUSH. I have a tendency to have oily, dull skin so this cleanser sounded like a perfect match for me. It was a bit weird at first as its more of a solid cleanser that you break a piece off and mix it with water to form a paste. It's a bit messy, the black water mixture gets every where and doesn't come off overly easy if it starts to dry on but I am in love with this product! It left my skin so smooth and clean feeling. I've definitely noticed a change in the oiliness of my skin (it's still oily but not as bad) and my skin looks brighter. Definitely going to continue to purchase this. And get ready for it....
Yup, sent this gem to my mom while I was washing my face the other day. {Hi Mom!} 
 
This lovely science project looking thing is actually the New! Stimulating and Reviving Minty Shampoo Bar.Weird huh? The strange looking sticks in the top are actually cinnamon sticks...still not sure how they do anything but eh, why not? This odd looking thing is supposed to "grow new hair" for people with thinning hair. I don't know if my hair is necessarily thinning but I do have very fine thing hair so I figured it couldn't hurt to try it. I was pretty skeptical on this one (the verdict is still in question) but I do like that it smells nice and fresh and lathers surprisingly well. It's a bit strange if you've never used a solid shampoo bar before (I haven't so I was clueless) but you definitely get used to it. I read that a lot of people said their scalps felt tingly after using this... mine has not.... so I don't know if that means it's not working on me or maybe just that I'm weird. Both are definitely plausible. I haven't noticed any definitive hair thickening but I do like how it makes my hair feel and how soft it is so I might as well continue to use it!

I always feel like this when I find new products that actually work:

So I'm definitely excited to share them with you! If you've had any experience with either of these let me know what your thoughts were!

  11. I haven't used Dark Angels before, but my husband and I LOVE the NEW! shampoo bar! I was really skeptical at first too, but now we love it. I will say that I've felt my scalp tingle while using it, but never after using it. By the time I've used conditioner the feeling is gone. I really love the smell of it and wish they had a conditioner with the same smell. Thanks for sharing! If you try more LUSH products I'd love to know what you think of them!
