I know they're ethically sound so want to use their stuff but I have no idea whether it's any good for the �. I never see their stuff mentioned on these threads. Does anyone have any feedback? I'm talking face wash, eye cream, shampoo etc.
The face masks are lovely. I have very very dry, flaky skin so use the oatifix one which is made with oats and banana and it leaves my skin beautifully soft, they have quite a few for different skin types and needs. the I Love Juicy shampoo is really nice for drier hair and I used the Veganese conditioner with it and always had bouncy hair. I found the face wash/cleansing bars didn't do much for me but the moisuturiser I used to use which is a good all rounder if your skin can't make up it's mind what type it is, Imperialis, has a good mattifying effect so makes a good base for make up, I had to stop using it because its got St Johns wort in it otherwise i'd still be using it. Shower gel wise though slightly off topic, if you have dry skin at all and/or any form of flakiness or eczema, Flying Fox is simply amazing. Expensive but the only thing that stops the awful patches of cracked, bleeding skin I get and the elbows to match it and i have tried so many creams and lotions from the doctor that did nothing to help!
Having bought practically everything that Lush sell at some point over the years, their stuff is great quality and really does work but trés expensive. Serious money, especially compared to when I stayed with them 20 years ago. To the point where I can't afford £18 each on a bottle of shampoo and conditioner, nor £35 on a pot of moisturiser. If you've got the money I'd say go for it though.
I really like the Ultrabland face cleanser and just bought the spicy red (?) shampoo bar and vanilla conditioner. It's delicious and my hair is super shiny.
The hand cream called handaguru(?) and lemon cuticle cream is also amazing. I spent £36 in lush the other day, that was for hand cream, cuticle butter, salt exfoliant, shampoo bar and a medium sized bottle of conditioner. I think that's really good value. I'd spend that in Superdrug.
I like the shampoo bars, my favourite is New, which smells of cloves - I also like Soak and Float. My friends have commented on my shiny hair as 'hair that colour doesn't usually have a shine'. Errr...thanks?
I tried Veganese and it smells nice, and gets rid of tangles in my hair after washing, but I haven't noticed much difference in condition otherwise.
I also love their perfumes (current favourite is Flower's Barrow), although I am not allowed to buy one I really want which smells strongly of patchouli. lovehearts Mr B52 thinks it stinks.
And I have tried their spa treatments (I got vouchers for Christmas and birthday) and it was fantastic. I felt so relaxed afterwards, and not just because I had a tot of rum in my cuppa.
