My Lush Must-Haves

Whenever I do a LUSH review video, I ALWAYS want to mention these products because I love them so much! But I can't always keep repeating myself :) Anyway, these are my absolute MUST-HAVE items from LUSH that I cannot live without!

1. Dream Cream

If I could only use one LUSH product and give up all my others (terrifying), it would be this. This body cream makes my skin feel and look amazing. I use it everyday. It's extremely moisturizing, but doesn't feel thick and sticky like some body creams do. It absorbs quickly and when you apply it, it almost melts into your skin and glides right on. You don't have to work to rub it in like with some stuff. It doesn't leave a residue or feel oily, but it gives my skin the healthiest glow. The scent is unique-- Herbal, but with a vanilla sweetness. Best part is that it's so gentle, people with the most sensitive skin (even on babies' skin!).

2. Big Shampoo

A good hair day in a little black pot. Seriously, when I use this stuff, my hair changes. It seems a little strange with the large salt chunks, but the stuff works. I like to use really nourishing things on my hair (it's color treated) so this would not be something I'd be drawn to. I nervously tried a sample of this and have been hooked since. It lathers like crazy. It has seaweed in it (which you can't see at all in the product), so maybe that's what makes it feel so great in my hair. It just feels moisturizing. Yet, when you rinse, your hair is squeaky clean, but doesn't feel stripped. Best part is the amazing results-- mega volume for even the most lifeless hair-- like mine :)

3. Rock Star Soap

My all-time favorite LUSH soap. The smell is hard to describe-- Like sweet candy. The scent really lingers on your skin too.

4. Ocean Salt
One word- amazing. I can use this stuff on my body or my face (yep, face). While you might think the salt sounds a little harsh, it leaves your skin feeling so soft and has really nourishing ingredients. *If you have sensitive or dry skin, I'd avoid using it on the face.



Not many products, I know. But these are truly the ones I cannot live without! While I've been using some of the skin care products on my face recently (and am loving lots of them--reaching "must-have" status quickly...), it's still too soon to add those to this list. However, I promise a full review next month of my LUSH skincare products after I've had some time to get a good feel for them :) Maybe even a must-have skincare post? ;)

  6. I wish they would make a color safe shampoo!! I've been using the garlic-y face mask (can't remember the name). At first I didn't love it or hate it, but it's really growing on me. Over the past 2 weeks my skin has become less oily throughout the day. Great post!

  8. Tiffany I have a question, what is the best way to use bar soap? I try to use it with a loofa because I don't like just rubbing it on my body (doesn't get sudsy enough) and I like to only use my washcloth for my facewash. How do you do it? Maybe I'll just have to washcloths in my shower haha. :)

  9. Great post! I grew up with LUSH and worked for them for a long time. Have you ever looked at the sister company? www.bnevertoobusytobebeautiful.com. They're unfortunately closing soon but have a look at all the gorgeousness before it goes. I'm trying to upload all the remaing swatches to my blog. So sad that it will soon no longer be with us :(

  13. I cannot wait to read/hear your impressions about Dark Angels. I just started using it recently and so far I like it a lot!

  14. I forgot to mention my own holy grail listing of lush products:

    shampoo: Big (I'm going to try Seanik next because apparently it's very similar, but it solid form, wich lasts longer)

    conditioner: American Cream (I just bought the biggest format because I love it so much! I love to mix it with Veganese conditioner too - smells like lemon meringue pie!)

    soap: sexy Peel is the best smelling one, I find. It's so refreshing! I just love it.

    Massage bar: Each Peach is my all-time fave. It makes me feel so incredible soft. I love the smell of Soft Coeur too but it's a pain to remove the chocolate bits.

    Shower gel: Rub Rub Rub - smells similar to Ocean Salt and is very scrubby. But I cannot wait to try the limited edition butterball shower gel I recently ordered.

    Errr... I could talk about Lush all day!

  24. Hey Tiffany!

    I love Lush too!
    My favourite soap is Honey I Washed The Kids.

    The Demon In The Dark Soap I prefer for the summer though. When it's really hot outside its great to cool down with this.

    Did you ever try any of the shampoo bars?
    I like them for travelling. They are small and don't make a mess in the baggage.

    I love watching your videos, keep it going!!!!

    Love

  25. Thanks for the great tips! I just bought the Big Shampoo, and totally fell in love!! It's magic! I have thin and color treated hair, and this shampoo makes my hair soft, yet full of volume. I have always been using brands like Redken, TIGI and so on, but this one beats them all!
    Love, love, love your blog and youtube channel :)
