a LUSH review

Recently I was contacted by The Retail Life to do a review on a product from Lush, I was so excited because I've never been in the store but I've always wanted to go in and this gave me the perfect excuse!

The staff was very helpful in educating me about their products and the different items they have available. Did you know they have solid moisturizers?! I didn’t! But they are so cool! All their items are organic and made from everyday natural ingredients like honey, oatmeal, lavender, and sea salt just to name a few.

At LUSH they have a very simple philosophy:

We believe in making effective products from fresh, organic* fruit and vegetables, the finest essential oils and safe synthetics.
We invent our own products and fragrances. We make them fresh by hand using little or no preservative or packaging, using only vegetarian ingredients, and tell you when they were made.
We believe in buying ingredients only from companies that do not commission tests on animals and in testing our products on humans.
We believe in happy people making happy soap, putting our faces on our products and making our mums proud.
We believe in long candlelit baths, sharing showers, massage, filling the world with perfume and in the right to make mistakes, lose everything and start again.
We believe our products are good value, that we should make a profit and that the customer is always right.
* We also believe words like fresh and organic have honest meaning beyond marketing.

After getting a tour of the store and all the products I decided to sample the Sea Vegetable soap bar, The Charity Pot body lotion, and I just HAD to buy the Whoosh jelly soap! It’s basically jello AND soap! I knew I’d have way too much fun with that in the shower!

Of course as soon as I got home I hopped in the shower to test all my new products out! I have to say I am a new fan and definitely plan on visiting again. I really admire the fact that they  make such quality and affordable products that are also green and sustainable. People! We’re basically saving the world when we bathe with their products!

Have any of you every tried LUSH before? What’s your favorite product?

All opinions in this post are my own and I was not compensated by LUSH for doing this review


  1. i LOVEEEE LUSH! I wish I lived closer to Crabtree so I could go more often! I used their haircare stuff and it's AMAZING!

  2. I've never tried Lush products before and you know I'm a beauty junkie! HaHaHa The store looks fabulous and I'm in love with their philosophy! Glad you liked their products. Will definitely have to look into their bath stuff. Thanks Marissa!

  3. I can't believe you've never tried them before Kim!! I hope you do try them soon and share what you think!! :-)

  4. I am a LUSH believer now Molly!

  5. Awesome post!! I tried to tag you but darn facebook wouldn't let me! Also I first learned about LUSH in Australia and I fell in love. Once you go in the store it's kinda hard not too!

  6. Just so your readers are aware: Lush products are not 100% organic or 100% natural, although some are! Lush is very open about their ingredients and their use of some synthetics in their products.

  7. I love Lush! Their bath bombs are great and I also love their bubble bars.

  8. I have been super obsessed with Lush since I first heard about them a few months ago but haven't tried them yet! Your pics are amazing - I am going to do the free sample right now!

  9. I walk by that store all the time but I've never been in. Looks like you got some great things!


  10. I've always been temped to check Lush out but I never have – I'm liking the sound of it though so I'm thinking I'll need to stop by soon!
