perfect for an evening cleanse

I have an obsession with cleansers. Not sure what it is, they aren't the most exciting item around but I'm constantly on the search to find one that actually does something for me. I have way too many half empty bottles (ok, that's being generous. Most of them I give...

Best lip balm I've ever tried

There's been a lot of hype surrounding this balm for a while now but it's never been something that I've bothered to look in to. But with the weather getting colder my lips inevitably start to suffer, so I decided to pick this up and see what all the fuss...

Fantastic product, awkward packaging.

I decided to try this mostly because I was fed up with not being able to find a liquid foundation that matched my skin tone. I was a little wary as this was pricy and I don't have a stockist anywhere near me so had to cross my fingers and...

Body Moisturisers
My go-to produyt for body moisture

The Body Shop is known for it's body butters and they are my favourites, but out of their entire range of body butters this is definitely my favourite. I love vanilla in general and the scent of this is lovely, I wish they had more products with this scent. ...

My favourite shampoo

This is hands down the best shampoo I have ever used in my life. And I've tried a lot (too many) including others from Kerastase. I have long (mid to lower back) hair that I straighten every day and used to dye regularly. Because of this it's...

I have to say 17 isn't a brand I ever consider buying, it just gets overlooked with all the choice out there. I got this as a free gift or from running up in a competition last year and was actually surprised by how impressed I was with it. ...

Looks and smells nice, didn't do anything for my hair

I bought the mini of this conditioner to try (along with the matching shampoo) and I'm glad I did, because I'd be very wary about putting this near my hair again. After the S&G shampoo left my hair feeling quite dry I was quite happy at the...

Light moisturiser for daily wear

One of the first things I do with a new product is smell it, as I tend to be quite fussy with smells xD I'd say this was kind of a spicy herbally smell? And I hadn't made the connection before but have to agree with whoever compared it to...

Dark circles remain

Overpowering chocolate smell

I'll admit to only having used this product the once, however I found when it came to moisturising it was identical to other Lush massage bars. It melts nicely in to the skin and leaves a nice sheen that stays for a while. And it's a nice moisturising feeling that...

I have to admit I'm pretty surprised to see the low reviews for this. I bought my Tangle Teezer about 5 years ago now and I rarely ever use anything else. While my hair isn't particularly thick it is very dry and damaged and prone to knotting and getting tangled...

Peach Frubes?

Average product with a smell that lingers

Not living near a Lush store I order my products online, which means not having the benefit of smelling them beforehand. I have to admit I was somewhat against this product even before I used it just because of the smell. I don't have a clue what it smells like...

Added shine

I've tried a lot of shine shampoos in the past and one thing the majority of them have in common is they give your hair that stripped squeaky 'too clean' feeling. While this had that a bit it was much better than the majority of shine shampoos I've used in...

Lovely subtle pink shine

When I first got this I was surprised at the size of the tin (I ordered online) it's 8g (though I believe listed as 10g on the Lush website, I was told this weight includes the packaging when I enquired), in comparison to my usual vaseline which is 20g. However...

Good for blemishes, not so great for dark circles

Before I start I feel I need to point out that when it comes to foundations I have very little to compare this with. My skin is very pale and therefore most foundations I've tried out there have been far too dark or orangey for my skin. ...

Fantastic for fine lines on the forehead

Gorgeous fresh smell
