LUSH, eh! {reviews}

This Holiday season LUSH has created a few Canadian-inspired products and not just because I'm Canadian but the three products I tried smell delicious.
Bûche de Noël Facial Cleanser; you won't be buying the roll, this comes packaged in a black pot without the ornament. Looks and reminds me of LUSH Angels on Bare Skin, same idea of a cleanser/scrub with different ingredients and I find Bûche de Noël not as gritty. A pea size amount is all you need, seriously. This stuff spreads, reminds me of hummus (not the smell) but the texture once applied to your face. This was around last year but was called Santa's Rice Porridge with slightly different ingredients. Its too bad that this is limited-edition, seriously planning on buying a pot or two. When it comes to skincare I don't fancy highly fragranced products but this cleanser smells so good I want to lick it. Must be because of the brandy in it, although there are no cherries in this smells like maraschino cherries (could be because of the cranberries). Best part is your skin will be left soft and smooth!

Iced Wine Shower Jelly;  This product seriously needs to become a permanent LUSH product. The scent, a tangy, citrus, fresh scent that is unisex. I find shower jellies a little tricky to use, would prefer this in liquid or solid soap format. But just for the scent alone would buy before they're gone. And if Iced Wine smelled this good at a liquor store, I'd be in trouble & a boozer.

Maple Taffy Lip Balm; Bring out the french toast! Love the smell of the Maple Taffy lip balm, so much that it gives me cravings for french toast & pancakes. About the product, although I do find it moisurizing I find it doesn't last as long as I'd like. Also, not a fan of the packaging. Would love to see LUSH create twist-up lip balms and get rid of the tins, don't like sticking my fingers in the packaging.

Anyone else love LUSH? I especially like LUSH wrapped gifts for the holidays (hint!hint!) 


  1. i've just purchased buche de noel yesterday. not sure if i'll keep it though because my sense of smell is pretty discriminating and i'm not exactly fond of the scent =/.

    time will tell :)

  2. Have you tried though? Once applied to face the scent is not as strong. But I love the smell, not for everyone:)
