Lush Favorites 2017

As you very well may know, I am a complete lushie, meaning I love Lush products - you can see my bath bomb demos and store tours in London and Seoul here. After expanding my collection from the popular bath bombs and bubble bars, I wanted to share some of my all time favorite Lush discoveries (mainly from this past year). Do you use Lush products, if so, what are your favorites or must-haves?

Ro's Argan Body Conditioner

I'm on my third container of Ro's Argan Body Conditioner; I just apply it onto my skin after cleansing in the shower. This body conditioner keeps the skin moisturized and feeling supple right out of the shower so you don't have to apply lotion. It keeps my skin feeling so soft that my fiancé can't keep he's hands off me, which proves to be quite a nuisance sometimes. It has my ultimate fave rose jam scent and is packed with cocoa, shea and cupuacu butters along with brazil nut, almond and argan oils, this luxurious conditioner deeply moisturizes skin without a greasy feel.

ROSE JAM Body Spray

I like the Rose Jam scent so much, that I can't just have it in shower gel and body conditioner form, but also had to get my hands on it when I found out it came in body spray form. Luckily, I was able to snag this while visiting the Oxford Street location in London, as it is unfortunately currently not available in the U.S. - hopefully they offer it soon!

R&B Hair Moisturizer

I was looking for a product that would tame my flyaway hairs and my friend Jacquii had suggested R&B. She uses it on her wet hair and said it was great for smoothing and conditioning hair. The orange blossom and jasmine fragrance is the perfect blend of sweet and floral. I like that it's a lotion consistency and it's easy to apply into wet hair. It's not meant for heavy duty keeping down my stray hairs (like my pomade products do), but I definitely see a difference in frizz control and a healthy look to my hair after using R&B.

Catastrophe Cosmetic

I've used a few of the fresh face masks and was curious to try the blueberry based concoction. It has a clay like appearance but is made of a blend of yummy, antioxidant-rich blueberries into calamine powder with rose absolute and chamomile blue oil to soothe redness and irritation and cleanse the skin gently without stripping it of its natural oils. This mask is soothing for sensitive skin and tends to last a bit longer than other masks I have applied - fresh face masks are to be refrigerated due to the fresh ingredients in them.

Sleepy Body Lotion

I can't stop raving about this lotion; it was released during the holiday/Christmas season and then introduced into the stores a couples months back so now I can get my hands on it year round. It's been said by some to help with anxiety and insomnia due to the sweet, lavender and tonka fragrance and is also infused with cocoa butter and almond oil for locked in moisture. 

Vanishing Cream

I wanted to try a new moisturizer, so I got a sample of Vanishing Cream. The consistency is a liquid-like cream, so it's lightweight and a little bit goes a long way. It works especially well on my semi-oily skin because it balances and tones my skin, allowing it to breath and doesn't leave a heavy residue or feel like I have a thick lotion on my skin. I like the lavender scent the most, and the moisturizer contains pore-tightening witch hazel and grape seed oil to soften and help make things right with your skin. It's on the pricier side but definitely has helped keep my skin moisturized, clear and radiant. 

Full of Grace Serum

If I want to apply additional moisture, I'll warm up this serum bar in my hands and rub the serum that's in my hands onto my face. I was also instructed to use this as a treatment before a mask for extra hydration. It's packed with numerous butters and calming chamomile and antioxidant mushroom extract to keep skin in fantastic condition all year round. I also like that it's easy to pack because it's a small, solid bar.
