I’m not that new to Lush, I always buy a bath bomb before we take a trip somewhere with a soaking tub. BUT, I never really bought into the hype about most of the skin products. That is, until recently. I had the world’s worst break out around Christmas. It had been brewing for awhile, but it really went psycho. I don’t know if it was the stress of all the things going on around the holidays, my hormones playing mean tricks, or what, but a few things that found their way under the tree from Lush made a huge difference.
5 Top Lush Products
Herbalism Cleanser: I have dry skin, so I try to avoid using anything abrasive… but the almonds in this don’t seem to irritate my skin. I wash my face once a day at night (you know, to remove makeup and all that fun stuff) and alternate this every other day with a gentle cream cleanser. Keeps the dry skin flakies at bay, and keeps my face nice a clear.
Tea Tree Toner Water: I use this as a preventative on areas where I tend to break out the most (especially around the jawline and lower cheek areas.) I find it’s not as hydrating as the rest of my face needs, so I use a moisturizing toner elsewhere. I’ve heard that when you run out, you can mix the Tea Tree Toner Tabs with water and refill the bottle for much, much less and for the same benefits.
Grease Lightning Cleanser: This is supposed to be a cleanser, but I actually use it as a spot treatment. I really like it because it doesn’t make my skin peel and flake like Salicylic Acid or Benzoyl Peroxide does. It seems to flatten blemishes and dry them up within a day or two, depending on the severity.
Ro’s Argan Body Conditioner: Obsessed. This is a little splurgey for something I use in the shower, but I will definitely be buying this again. It smells so good (from what I understand it is the same scent as Rose Jam body wash, which I will also be picking up soon!) and it allows me to skip moisturizing post shower. My normally itchy dry winter skin is so much better this year, and I’m thinking it’s all due to this product.
Popcorn Lip Scrub: I mentioned this in my what I put on my face post, but this deserves another mention. It’s fabulous to use before priming your lips for lipstick, and I use it when I’m exfoliating my face with Herbalism. Plus, it tastes delicious and is actually edible (though I wouldn’t plan on eating too much of it, I imagine that would give you a stomach ache.)
If you’re new to Lush, I’m not the only blogger who’s obsessed. Check out Cat’s post on her favorite Lush masks or Kelly’s post on her beauty favorites. I definitely have a few of their picks on my list for next time!

Are you a Lush fan? What other products do I need to try?
TRUE ROMANCE gift set is my favorite from LUSH.
Ooh, I’ll have to check that one out! Good luck, Mai!
I’m a big fan of Lush too! I haven’t tried all that many products, but whatever I do try I love! Lush make this wonderful face mask (I can’t remember which one as I’m out of it at the moment) and it’s amazing! I keep it in the fridge and it makes such a difference in waking up and refreshing my skin as well as packing the moisture in! X
I still need to try their face masks! I definitely am going to be picking a few up to try soon! :)
I love Lush’s soaps, they smell just wonderful and really moisturize.
They do smell great! Thanks for entering, Sharon!
Hello! As I’m single, I’m not doing anything for Valentine’s Day. It’s fine though. I’ll probably go out to eat with my best friend. Thank-you for this super fun chance!
That sounds like fun! Good luck, Natalie!
I’m having a tea party with my best friend for Valentine’s day! c:
Sounds like a fun way to celebrate! Thanks for entering, Keru!
Jarrod and I are going out to dinner at a fancy place, we might see a movie too or get ice cream after, I’m not sure yet.
Sounds like a fun night! Thanks for entering, Breenah!
oh I’m so sure we’ll be celebrating a gaaaalentines day with the men we can count on, you know Jose, Jack, + Jim. haha. ALSO I have had some Lush soap things forever that someone gave me but I don’t really know what they’re for…
Ha, sounds like a good way to celebrate! And haha, which kind of soap is it?
I have no idea honestly. it’s like soupy + I have literally had it since I graduated college, I just move it with my bathroom stuff from place to place!
Haha! Sounds weird! It’s probably not good anymore anyways, Lush’s products tend to have a short shelf life. :P
I love Lush and I use just about all of the products you listed. Herbalism is amazing as well as the Tea Tree Toner. I also love the face mask in Cupcake. It does wonders for my acne prone skin!
I’ll have to try Cupcake next then, that sounds like just what I need! :)
thanks for the giveaway! we are going to a byob mexican place that i have a groupon for. i’m excited to try it. enjoy yours!
Sounds like a good way to celebrate! Hope it’s good :)
I think we’re staying in for a Game Night, and cooking up a romantic meal!
Sounds like a fun night! Thanks for entering, Jamie! :)
Lunch and a matinee movie with some girlfriends!!
Sounds like fun! Thanks for entering, Heather!
The only thing I’ve ever gotten to try from Lush were the bath bombs and they smelled AMAZING!
They’re bath bombs do smell good! I wish I had more of a reason to use them more often!
We’re doing an at home date night this year for Valentine’s Day. My husband is an incredible cook so he is going to make something for us and we’ll enjoy a bottle of our favorite champagne, Veuve Clicquot. It’s going to be a nice, quiet night. We both have a crazy week at work leading up to Valentine’s Day and decided that sounded nicer than fighting a crowd at a restaurant.
Oh I’m jealous, that sounds like an amazing night! I wish Dave would cook a bit more often… ;)
I got the popcorn lip scrub for my birthday….sooo amazing, and you need to try the Ocean Salt Scrub. I highly recommend that!
I’ll definitely give that a try, I’ve heard good things about that! :)
I want to try the popcorn lip scrub! For Valentine’s Day we will probably go out to dinner!
Sounds like fun, and thanks for entering Julia!
I’ll be getting dressed up and going for dinner with my Husband.
Sounds like fun! Thanks for entering!
I love having a Valentine’s tea party with my girls :)
Oh that sounds fun! Thanks for entering, Shelley!
I do not have plans for Valentine’s Day yet. I also have not tried Lush yet.
Thanks for entering, Mickie!
Me and the hubby are staying in on V-day. I will make him his favorite meal (mac and cheese) and we will probably watch a movie. Nice and simple.
Oh that sounds like fun. Mac and Cheese is my favorite too! Good luck, Tania!
I don’t have any vday plans yet.
Thanks for entering, Colleen!
I don’t have any plans for Valentine’s Day yet. I will probably do something low-key!
Sounds like what we’ll do too. Thanks for entering, Meegan!
Instead of paying for a couples massage we are going to learn how to do them ourselves! :)
Oh that sounds like fun! Thanks for entering, Brooklyn!
I keep hearing about Lush but haven’t tried them yet. I will have to, now! The bath bombs look amazing-maybe I will treat myself to one on my wedding anniversary trip next month! And this giveaway is the bomb!
That sounds like a fabulous idea! So glad you like the giveaway, and thanks for entering, Chelsie!
Hey, thanks for the link, lady! I’m surprised you even remember I posted that :)
I’m also surprised you loved the tea tree toner that much. I’ve tried a fair amount of Lush products, but really felt like that didn’t do too much for my skin that I could tell. I totally agree with you on the popcorn lip scrub, though. Obsessed!
This one might not be as good for your skin of you’re prone to drying, but I love Fresh Farmacy for battling my acne. It’s seriously the best daily cleanser I’ve ever tried.
I remembered because I added a bunch of the masks to my wishlist… and still have yet to buy them! Definitely doing that next mall stop. ;)
See, I’m not 100% sure that it’s that particular product, but I find when I don’t use it I do have break outs, but it could be a coincidence as well. That’s the tricky thing about acne-prone skin since there are so many variables!
I will have to try Fresh Farmacy, but maybe in the summer when I’m less dry. I’ve heard good things about it!
I LOVE LUSH!!!! My favorite product is the facial mask!!! :)
I definitely need to try some of their facial masks!
Wow, too funny!!! I just saw the sex bomb is in the package!!! I LOVE that one.. I did not even know about it until my husband bought it for me. He loves lush too! :)
Oh that’s awesome! It smells so good, one of my favorites! :)
I love this tequila scrub (I think it was tequila) followed by a lemon lotion.
Maybe the Ocean Sea Salt (it’s vodka-based)? I’ll have to check out the lemon lotion too! Thanks for entering, Emily!
I have been ogling Lush products for years, but sadly I’ve never pulled the trigger on anything. I’ve wanted to try their Big Shampoo for a while, but that popcorn lip scrub sounds amazing too!
I’ve heard tons of great things about the Big Shampoo, and of course I highly recommend the lip scrub!
Ooh, tea tree toner! That sounds soooo good. I’m a total Lush newbie, so unfortunately I can’t recommend anything to you :)
Ha, no worries! You’ll have to let me know if you try the toner!
I’ve never actually bought anything from Lush. I always walk past the shops, having a good look in, but I never properly look around, because they’re always so busy. I think next time, I’ll have to make an effort and fight my way through the crowds.
They are always busy, aren’t they?! It definitely can be overwhelming, but they always have the most helpful employees if you have any questions, and they’re not as hard-sell as some shops!
For Valentines Day I am going home (I am away at school,) for dinner with my boyfriend!
Aw, hope you have fun and safe travels! Thanks for entering, Paige!
I love spending the evening with my hubby!
Thanks for entering, Susannah!
Good to hear that you like the Herbalism – I might have to give it another try! I got some for my birthday last year and used it all up. I liked it but didn’t find it did anything special for my skin. At the same time, i was having one of my worst ever eczema episodes and my skin was pretty gnarly in general, so probably not the best time to be evaluating products!
Through the Thicket
Oh no! You’re probably right, but I do find that I can’t use it everyday since it does seem to be made more for oily skin than dry/sensitive like mine. I do like that it makes my skin feel soft and gets rid of the flaky bits though!
I love Lush too! We actually have some of the same favorites. If I had to pick one, I think it would be Herbalism. I did a blog post on my favorites here: http://atinycupofcake.com/lush-skincare-review/ — fun to see some similar items!
Awesome, going to check out your review too! :)
My boyfriend and I already had an early Valentine’s Day- we went out for a really nice dinner and saw a broadway play afterwards! We had an amazing time.

This will be the first Valentine’s day since my divorce but I’m spending it will an old flame to see if we can rekindle the fire that we once had.

Aw, I hope things work out! Thanks for entering, Stephanie!
