Banana Skin facial oil

5 out of 5 rating. See my 3 minute demo video of this facial oil below.

This is a solid facial oil. Lush has introduced four kinds. Some of you might be famiar with the popular 7 step korean skin care method. I follow the korean beauty trend. I also have been using the facial oils from the U.S. brand Sunday Riley. I love what facial oils do for my face.

So i was excited that Lush had created their own facial oils. And Lush went a step further by making their facial oils packageless, and solid.

I got all of them from the Lush 2018 creative showcase in Manchester England.

I wanted to try this Banana Skin first to review for you, mostly because this one is what my skin needs. Its nourishing and moisturizing for drier skin.

Right off the bat i can feel the difference tapioca flour that Lush adds to their facial oils makes. It makes it more of a dry oil, which i Love. If theres one thing i hate its having greasy/oily stuff lingering too long on my skin.

The scent is like custard. Lush adds tonka bean to this blend. In face there are SO many good things in this bar.

Lush uses tincture of bananas, which is factory waste, in the banana skin facial oil.

Then Lush adds mango butter, fresh bananas, organic grapeseed oil, apricot kernel oil, Ambrett seed oil, murumuru butter, Illipe butter, cupuacu butter, jojoba oil and sandalwood oil.

I love how it feels and how it works. I live that it sinks into my skin so fast. I can use a lot of this and my face will never get greasy.

I would say this performs as well as my sunday riley facial oils and my korean brands.

My skin looks great!

Heres my 3 minute video

Avocado Co Wash scent family

There are one or two other products that arent in this photo.

All the avocado co wash products made by Lush over the tears and currently are listed below in order of the originating product at the top of the list.

Avocado Co Wash hair conditioner

Avocado Co Wash shower gel. This is a thick shower gel.

Avocado Co Wash body lotion

Melusine exclusive, limited edition bath bomb

Avocado Co Wash exclusive uk body spray

Avocado Co Wash naked shower cream

I’m also checking to make sure that one of the Lush 2018 ‘bauble melts’ isnt avocado Co Wash scented.

 

Its a very sour lime scent with a nice sweet note in it. It’s quite a big burst of a limey fragrance made with sweet, fruity bergamot oil, fragrant incense-y yet citrussy frankincense (olibanum), and the lemony litsea cubeba herb.

There is the addition of avocado, which is moisturizing and softening for skin and hair.

There is rosemary, nettle, vinegar and lavender flower in the conditioner.

Lush American Cream scent family photo

American Cream is a vanilla based scent which also has clary sage, and lavender as its scent components.  The hair conditioner added strawberry.  The other American Cream products have strawberry in them…but….American Cream products do not smell like strawberry.  It’s made with strawberry, it’s not strawberry scented. And in the perfumery industry there IS a difference between those two sentences. :-)I like to make that clear, so that people won’t spend their hard earned money on something that they think will be strawberry scented, only to be disappointed when it’s not.

And rest assured Lush doesn’t claim the American cream scent smells like strawberry either.  I know because I’ve talked the the owner of lush about this very thing.

Now, onto what it DOES smell like, to most people, including myself.  It smells like creamy vanilla, with a light whiff of herbal clary sage and a pinch of herb-y lavender.

Below i’ll list what is shown and what isn’t shown in my photo above.

Hulder

5 out of 5 rating.
Hulder is a scandinavian mythological creature. Its akin to a siren or a mermaid. It’s part animal part human.

check out my tub demo below of this glittery gorgeous bomb.

This is an exclusive bath bomb shown at the Lush uk Creative Showcase event in England September 23 & 24.

I took some video footage of hulder at the Lush showcase for you. I also recorded a tub demo video for you, And i also took photos of mine in the tub.

Lush also sold iron on patches of the exclusive bombs at the showcase event.

We were able to buy one only once per day and only for one hour when the magic bus opened. But first-One had to see the secret count down signs that were placed throughout the event to let us know when and where. It was a fun game.

Eventually these six exclusive bath bombs will only be sold in Lush Japan’s first all ‘naked’ Lush store, which is slated to open in 2019.

Hulder is my favorite of the six bombs bevause of the way it looks and the way it smells.

The scent is very different, in a good way. It smells floral and earthy with a big of greenery. Absolutely gorgeous. It smells both pretty and mysterious.

I didnt want to get out of the tub.

The bomb shows green and purple as it fizzes. Green and purple are my favorite color combination. My hair is dyed green and purple.

Im so so grateful that Jack Constantine gave me a random act of kindness.

On Instagram some lushies who like to do makeup looks have been creating makeup looks to match lush halloween products. So, since my daughter loves makeup, i had my daughter do a look for Hulder. 🙂

Here is my tub demo

Little Pot of Energy

This is a solid/naked packageless body lotion exclusive to the LushLabs at lush.co.uk

While i did not like the previous naked body lotion ‘Once Upon a Time’ that lush made for Christmas 2017, this one, Little Pot of Energy, is different.

Its not oily nor greasy. Its a drier consistency than ive seen before. Almost how a dry deo goes on. Theres no tacky feeling when you apply it.

I like the smell. Its made with oranges and grapefruit, as i explain in my demo and review video below.

the bottom line is that this works for me. it moisturizes my skin without feeling oily, and it snells great.

i would actually use this everyday, and i might even buy another one.

Lush: Move mountains. Fight lethargy. Deliver a dose of vitalising citrus straight to the skin. It’s a bolt of lightening to the brain: a sweep of orange puree that’s electric sharp to sniff but smooth as butter on your body thanks to a base of Fair Trade Colombian cocoa butter. Supercharge your skin with a sweep of brightening orange and grapefruit pulp and reboot your mind with a perfume flavour so fresh you can nearly taste it. Motivation’s never been this mouthwatering.

Orange Puree

Pink Grapefruit Puree

Almond Oil

Fair Trade Shea Butter

Japan Wax

Carnauba Wax

Desert Date

5 out of 5 rating. See my demo video below.

Here’s a photo of mine with my devil duckie.

it smells similar to one of my favorite Lush products ever called ‘Fever’.

desert Date is made with jasmine, sandalwood and rose.

photo below courtesy of @Lushiezzz on Instagram

this is to exfoliate and moisturize in one bar. Much like lush ‘rub rub rub’ or ‘rough with the smooth’ bar, this is made with cocoa butter and illipe butter.

here’s a photo i took of mine below

The scent is a bold floral with a slightly Woody undertone. If you’re familiar with the Lush ‘Fever’ massage bar, ‘Fever’ perfume, or the ‘mirror mirror neck cream then you’ll recognize the sexy scent.

Antiope

Naked shower gel for Mothers day. See my sink demo and review video below!

Antiope is the name of the Amazonian in ‘Wonder Woman’.

this scent is earthy and orangey. It gets even better smelling when you use it. Initially, the clay gives a strange note to the fragrance, but as you use it the orangey scent comes out and combined with the fresh, calming scent of the bentonite clay.

Twilight naked

See my 7 minute Demo and review video below. This is shower gel A new )limited time) format, a solid, naked shower gel in the popular Lush lavender and tonka ‘Twilight’ fragrance.

Here are as couple of photos I’ve taken of mine

The regular bottles type of Twilight are also available this year in the 100g, 250g, and 500g. I’m unsure as yet if there is a 1k size this year as there was last year.

Toothy Tabs!  Debuting in Lush’ first “Superstore” at Lush Oxford Street in London.

I was sure i wanted to try to acquire the golden ‘Bling’ toothy tabs first, because they had  Orange and Frankincense, which are two of my favorite things.

Here’s a video of my “Bling” toothy tab experience.  I like the idea of these “Toothy Tabs”, and now that they actually taste good i am more apt to actually use them in place of commercial toothpaste.
