Pamper Yourself with Our Favourite Lush Products
Whether you’re a man or a woman we all love a good pamper, and I personally believe that everyone has the right to good quality products for a top quality pampering experience. To help you find the right products for you, I have listed the top pampering products available at popular high street store Lush.
Lush is a handmade cosmetic company founded in 1995. Lush sells a variety of products but has become known for its Bath Bombs, Soaps and Face Masks. Lush does not use animal fats in any of their products like some retailers do and they also make sure no products are tested on animals.
Bath Bombs are a fun way of relaxing after a hard days work and the ‘Golden Egg’ is one of the best. When you place the Bath Bomb in the bath the outer layer melts away giving the bath a golden tinge and releases its glitter. The second layer then fizzes away releasing honey and toffee fragrance’s into the water. The smell of this Bath Bomb alone is enough to soothe and calm oneself, but it also contains olive oil and cocoa Butter which helps cleanse and moisturise your skin.

This sparkly bomb seemed to go on forever and when I got out of the bath my skin smelt sweet. There was also glitter left in my hair – I love it!
A bath melt is similar to a bath bomb. A bath bomb uses critic acid to create a fizz and subsequently releases essential oils, but a bath melt uses substances like cocoa butter and shea butter both of which have moisturising properties. Bath melts slowly melt when in contact with warm water and leave the bath milky. Lush has created the king of bath melts which has been copied by may other companies but never to Lush’s high standards. The Ceridwen’s Cauldron Bath Melt is made up of cocoa butter, oats and is scented with soothing sandalwood wrapped in a washcloth. Coco butter and oats both have rich moisturising properties and soothes sensitive skin.

This is my favourite Lush product by far. Im not really into the sparkly fizzing bubble baths so this melt is perfect for me. When it melts the bath looks milky and smells great (not too strong). The melt really moisturises your skin which is great for me because I have dry skin. 10/10
The Porridge Soap Bar is a fantastic product to use first thing in the morning. The strong orange fragrance wakes you up and leaves your skin smelling fresh. The pinhead oatmeal within the porridge soap bar is included to exfoliate and moisturise the skin. The Porridge Soap Bar also contains rapeseed oil and coconut oil which replaces the animal fats found in most soaps, and also moisturises your skin.
Feet are often a neglected part of our bodies and after a long day they can hurt, smell and be dry. Feet are always a good place to start when wanting to pamper yourself. The Lush Stepping Stone Foot Scrub is designed to make you feel fantastic about your feet, the pumice powder scrubs all hard and dead skin away. Foot odours are eradicated by the use lemongrass oil within the Stepping Stone which also has antiseptic properties that combats the microbes that cause foot odour. The stone is also scented with lime and lemon leaving feet smelling fresh. Sea salt, jojoba oil and cocoa butter are combined to exfoliate and re-hydrate the skin on your feet.
A massage always feels nice on heavy and tired limbs. The Lush Hottie Massage bar can help you achieve a fantastic massage whether you’re massaging yourself or being massaged…The dimples on the Hottie Massage Bar feel nice on the skin and the smell of vanilla mixed with ginger will sooth your senses and leave your skin smelling fresh all day. Hottie is made up of jojoba oil and a cocoa butter base which melts when it comes into contact with your skin. Hottie also contains one unusual ingredient – black pepper oil which gives the bar a warming feel, which can leave your tired muscles feeling energised.
Spots can be embarrassing and most of us have used products to attempt to clear and prevent them. The Tea Tree in Lush’s Tea Tree Water has antibacterial, anti-fungal and antimicrobial properties which help fight spots. The water is also combined with Juniper berry which works as an antiseptic and helps keep skin clean and clear.
Face creams and moisturisers are used to help re-hydrate your skin and fight the signs of ageing. The Enzymion moisturiser is designed for people who have problems with oily skin. The base ingredients in Enzymion moisturiser is fresh papaya, cocoa butter and aloe vera gel. These ingredients contain the moisturising properties. Enzymion has another ingredient that makes it stand out from its competition, this ingredient is one whole fresh lemon in every pot. The enzymes and alpha hydroxy acids found in the lemon juice gives Enzymion a refreshing and clean feel for a moisturiser and the lemon removes dirt and dead skin cells as well as stimulating and brightening living skin.

I suffer from oily skin especially on my T zone. After using this product for only one day I noticed such a difference, it cleared up my dry skin as well as getting rid of my blackheads. Surprisingly this moisturiser really helped under my make up, keeping my face oil free. It worked for a good 8+ hours too whereas before my face would go oily after about 4 hours.
After a long day it’s nice to replenish and moisturise your skin. Vanilla Dee-lite is a vanilla scented Lotion made up of illipe butter and coconut oil which hydrates your skin. Vanilla Dee-lite also contains antioxidants and enzymes that get rid of dead skin. The strong vanilla scent soothes your nerves and smells delicious.
Everyone knows that face masks are a great way to cleanse your face – they are quick and easy to apply and should always be included as a treat for your skin every now and then. Lush’s Cupcake Face Mask uses rhassoul mud as its base ingredient, the mud is a natural mineral and is an excellent cleanser and grease remover. The fresh mint in Cupcake is included to tone skin and the cocoa powder and linseed oil moisturises your skin. Cupcake takes 15 minutes to work and will leave your face clean, smooth and feeling fantastic.
Lip Balm’s are the best way to give yourself a little pamper on the go. Lush has a variety of different lip balms for sale but I believe that the Whipstick lip balm is the best on sale. Whipstick is made with honey, oat milk and shea butter which leaves your lips super hydrated. It also contains orange oil, cocoa butter and vanilla extract in order to give the balm a chocolate orange taste.
