    I think Lush cleverly uses the slogan ‘handmade’ to evoke images of natural ingredients/safety etc but the products are no different to ordinary supermarket products. I can’t walk into a store without coughing from the overpowering smell and anything that strong can’t be good for your body.

    Also my husband works for a cosmetic company.

    @dayl20:  I’m not a lush fan.  I’ve used their products and their bathbombs smell nice but I find that they usually make a mess of my tub.  So many of them are full of glitter and flower petals and whatnot, my relaxing bath ends in my scrubbing the tub.

    I also have issue with their politics.  I’ve been approached more than once and asked to sign a petition based on flawed information.

    My mom and I both LOVE lush, but only some items. Other stuff I think is a waste. I love their skincare products, but I do have some allergies so I have to be careful and try stuff out – even all natural stuff can make your skin freak out if it’s sensitive. The ultra bland cleanser is oil based and freaking amazing – my skin is incredible when I use it! I like the lip scrub but I don’t think it’s worth the money, personally.

    I love the bubble bars, as well, but I usually break them up and use 1/3 of the bar at a time. You can do the same with the bath bomb to make it last longer.

    As I get older, I have allergic reactions to more and more products. I never have problems with theirs. Their stores smell way to strong, but their individual products don’t, though I break the bath bombs in half. I love their Big sea salt shampoo. I use a little of that mixed with another shampoo, currently just a dab of their honey shampoo (which has crazy amounts of lather.) It makes my roots really voluminous. I have a lot of very fine hair that weighs itself down and goes flat easily. The Big shampoo gives so much volume it look blow-dried when I air dry. It’s awesome.

    @dayl20: I agree with the other PPs. They look and smell nice but I have found with one bath bomb I remember using, it wasn’t that practical, it didn’t dissolve all that easily and I had a load of dried flowers sharing my bath, which I then had to clean out afterwards. Their stuff looks nice but for me it’s not worth paying the price for.

    @dayl20:  I seriously love lush, but I think some of their things are over priced (like their soaps — I like Philosophy waaaaaaay more), and their shampoos. However, I love love love their bath bombs, and I think that their face masks are great, and a great price point, too. Also, their lip scrubs are amaaaaaazing. 

    Edit: I just read some PP… I’ve never had any trouble with bath bombs not rinsing out completely. The only one I can think of that might do that is Big Blue, but it took maybe 60 seconds of sitting there rinsing to get all of the seaweed out. There are pros and cons to all of the stuff they have (the bath bombs make your skin ridiculously soft), but they’re worth a try at least once. You’ll never know if you like it unless you try it yourself. 

     

    FWIW, Dragon’s Egg is the most amazing bath bomb ever. and since it’s holiday season, you should check out Golden Wonder, also. It’s amazing and beautiful.

    @MsGinkgo:  That’s unfortunately that you had to scrub your tub, I’ve never had that issue with any of my bath bombs, and I tend to gravitate towards the ones that have a lot of glitter and color in them.

    I’ve only tried their bathbombs and bubble bars. I looove the bubble bars, but as PP said, I usually break it up and use about 1/3 of it at a time!

    @dayl20:  there’s a lush near where my bf works, so he surprises me with bath bombs fairly often. I think they’re  fun and relaxing, and i love getting and giving them as gifts. Let me know about the lip scrub, I want to try that! I’ve also tried two different bar shampoos, which I liked, but even using the tin they sell they got kind of gross fast. My favorite tbing is the veganese conditioner, it’s soo light and smells great. But it’s a little pricey for me and I haven’t purchased again since the first time.

    I used a LOT of different Lush products over the years. I used to be all about them because of the way they market themselves as handmade and make you feel as though their products are natural (as another poster mentioned), when they’re not. They use parabens, perfumes, and other not so great ingredients. They’re essential high-priced regular products. In my bathroom right now I have a shower jelly, lip scrub, and moisturizer. The lip scrub is nice, but honestly nothing stellar and certainly not worth the price tage. The shower jelly is a novelty type of item, but the ingredients aren’t great and it’s a pain in the butt to use. The moisturizer also has some not great ingredients and is pretty pore clogging (I’m not using it anymore). Some things are pretty nice and I wouldn’t say many of their products are bad, just not worth the price tag.
