Sapphire Loves....

Collective review of all the products I have used from my last Lush haul! 

I did not take pictures of how the bath looked or anything and I MUST get into the habit of doing so but I am sure many of you have seen pictures of what the Lush bath ballistics look like in action!

Big Blue Bath Ballistic:

I love love love this! And because it is so big, I usually get two uses out of it! It smells zingy and fresh, like citrus-y lemon-y and limes, just, mm! I like that it has lots of bits of sea weed in it, and it turns the water a turquoise blue. I don’t think it’s the most moisturising bath ballistic but still, I like it and will repurchase.

Price: £3.20

Verdict: 4/5

Blackberry Bath Ballistic: 

This one is just as big and is so moisturising that I don’t even have to put body lotion on after a bath with this! I also love the little bit of paper inside the bath ballistic, was a nice touch. This smells very fruity and has some floral notes in it too. I will always repurchase this.

Price: £2.95

Verdict: 5/5

Avobath Bath Ballistic:

I love anything that smells like lemons or any fresh smell, and this one ticks all the right boxes. Again, it is a decent size, so perhaps would get two uses out of it, except I didn’t do that, I chucked the whole thing in, and it was delicious. Turns the bath water a creamy green and the scent lingers on the skin, and in the air.

Price: £3.20

Verdict: 5/5

Dorothy Bubble Bar:

I really love the smell of this, floral and fresh, and I get two uses out of this, the bubbles it creates are immense! And it makes my skin and the bathroom smell so damn good! It contains ylang ylang oil and orange oil in, which explains the floral/fresh combination. Always repurchase!

Price: £2.99

Verdict: 5/5

Pop in the Bath:

This to me smells like fresh fields and flowers, but with a sweet tinge to it, I managed to use this twice, and it produces so many bubbles, how do Lush do that?? This was the first ever time I had used it and I will buy it again. The smell didn’t kast as long as Dorothy though.

Price: £2.90

Verdict: 4/5

Herbalism Facial Cleanser:

This has the right amount of scrub in it, and is recommended for spot prone skin, which is me :( It smells like vinegar and I actually quite like the smell but most people tend to hate it. It contains ground almonds which slough off dead skin cells and has rose and chamomile in it to calm and balance the skin. It lasted me a long time, and left my skin so soft and smooth but I don’t think it helped to clear up my skin per se, it did control oil pretty well though.

Price: £6.25

Verdict: 3.5/5

Dark Angels Facial Cleanser:

This is very VERY abrasive, but my skin felt so deeply cleaned afterwards! I wanted to love this though, but because of how abrasive it is, I think it made me break out, not because of the ingredients but because it aggravated my skin a little bit. I am unable to use it up because of this reason. I am wondering whether to try Aqua Marina or Let the Good Times Roll or Fresh Farmacy, you know, something less abrasive! I did love the smell of it, and my skin has NEVER felt that smooth, but then again, because of the grains in it, no wonder!

Price: £6.25

Verdict: 2/5

Love Lettuce Fresh Face Mask:

I am impressed with this. After wanting to move away from Cupcake because my skin does not always warrant using it, I decided to try this one, because I love lavender and I know my skin agrees with it. Plus it is the only one that is particularly scrubby. I put it on using circular motions and leave it for ten minutes and wash it off. My skin looked brighter and felt lovely, and it REALLY calmed my skin down, despite the scrubby ground almond shells. I will repurchase this!

Price: £5.95

Verdict: 5/5

Catastrophe Cosmetic Fresh Face Mask:

Another product that I am impressed with. Not only does it smell like blueberry pie, it really calms my skin as well. I think it must be the calamine powder in it. It has no scrubby bits in it, but my skin felt very soft afterwards. I will also be buying this again (bye bye money!)

Price: £5.95

Verdict: 5/5

Big Shampoo:

Oh my god I love everything about this. I asked for a sample of this aaages ago, and I was so skeptical because of the large bits of sea salt in it, I was thinking to myself, “How do those sea salt bits not get stuck in your hair, and how does it lather properly??” Well, it does and they don’t get stuck. I hardly need any and it produces a lovely soft silky foam and the smell! It smells like fresh tropical seas, really fresh, and it lingers on my hair until I next wash it. I did not notice a change in the volume of my hair, but to be honest I bought it for the softening properties and the smell, not volumising purposes :) so yes I will buy this when I run out but I don’t think it will be any time soon! I recommend anyone should buy this if they buy anything from Lush.

Price: £11.25

Verdict: 5/5

Rub Rub Rub Body Scrub:

This is the best body scrub I have ever used! It isn’t too abrasive and it is incredibly mosturising. And it is a good sized tub. AND it smells so nice, I think it’s partly down to the mimosa in it. I love Mimosa. Everything about it is amazing.

Price: £7.95

Verdict: 5/5

Miranda Soap:

This is very creamy soap, is moisturising and fruity. I use it everyday and the smell lingers and it scents my bathroom the most. It contains Fresh Kiwi, Juniperberry Oil and ylang ylang oil, which makes for a heady concoction! Can sometimes make me feel a little sick for some reason though but I will carry on using it!

Price: £3.40 per 100 grams

Verdict: 4/5

Sea Vegetable Soap:

This smells like lemons and limes and grapefruits and has bits of nori seaweed in it. I like this because it wakes me up, yet I don’t use it in the morning, I use Miranda, I use Sea vegetable at night, is that weird? I will buy this again.

Price: £3.10 per 100 grams

Verdict: 5/5

Ghost Shower Jelly:

When I saw this I was like MUST BUY QUICK and sure enough it didn’t take very long to sell out and never to be bought again, well, for another year anyway! It smells like baby powder to me, perhaps that’s the floral lilies in them, but yeah, it reminds me of babies haha! I don’t mind that though, some baby products smell lovely. I love the scary face in the jelly too, made me laugh, oh Lush :P the smell lingers nicely and doesn’t lather lots but I didn’t expect it to!

Price: £4.95

Verdict: 4/5

So there you have it, I have reviewed the lot, and my bathroom is chock full of Lush, just the way I like it. Cannot WAIT to try all my Christmas haul stuff, and I am not even done buying yet, my boyfriend is going to kill me haa.
