Review: Some Lush Products

Hi Ladies!
I'm a huge fan of Lush, but I was accumulating so much stuff from them that in June I made a pause. And so last week I made my first order in three months! I must say, I'm really pleased with what I got.
I've used up some Lush items, so I thought I could give you a short review on some of them in one post, instead of making a single post of each one. There are some items that I will review in one post though... later (:

I'm going to start with the soaps!

Honey I washed the Kids Soap: This one is very popular. It smells really like honey and toffee, when I got this I was always smelling this like crazy ahaha... I used this on the shower and I must say, even though is really moisturizing, it didn't lather at all, and the scent didn't linger on my skin after the shower. I was really disappointed about that.
I cut this into pieces (which was very easy, cause it's so creamy), and it lasted me a long time. I bought it from the uk Lush website, it had no cute honey comb on top, but that's okay (: Sorry I have no picture of it, I used it up.
I will buy this soap again, because I love the smell, but I will only use it on my hands.

I Should Coco:
This is my favorite now. The scent reminds me of pinacolada, it's so yummy that I'm always smelling this! I put this on my bedroom, and now it smells like coconut and pineapples!
Unlike the HIWTK, I should Coco lathers really well while being moisturizing too. It has some coconut bits which makes it less softer on the skin than the HIWTK, but I love it.
It has a pink and white color, it's really pretty, but can be a little bit messy, so keep that in mind while cutting it. It was a little bit more hard to cut, but I did it without any problems.
I know this is going to be a product that I'll always buy from Lush, I love it.

(here's a picture of one piece that I cut, sorry for the bad quality of the photo)

This next product is a skin care product and one of my favorite Lush products! I never thought I would like it...

Baby Face: It's a cleanser bar! I use it to remove make-up at night, and I must say, it's wonderful!
It has a herbal scent which I love... Cocoa butter, shea butter and extra virgin coconut oil are three of the amazing ingredients that Baby Face has.
I was really scared to use this at first, I confess. I have sensitive oily skin, so the idea of putting more oil on my skin was crazy for me, but I heard some reviews and I did my research, so I gave it a try. I'm glad I did. Believe me when I say that this thing removes ALL your make-up, even the long lasting ones. My studio sculpt foundation was horrible to take it off with other cleansers and make up removers, but with this, it was gone in a blink of an eye!
The way I apply it is very easy:
  1. I put a headband on my hair, so the oil don't touch my roots. I use the Body Shop one. You can buy it here.
  2. Then I massage the bar in to my dry skin, using the front in the nose area. And then massage with my hands. With this, the eye make up it's really easy to remove and it doesn't irritate your eyes.
  3. With a warm flannel facial washcloth by the Body Shop I take all the oils and make up. It doesn't leave any oil or make-up residue. You can buy the flannel washcloth here.
You really have to use some washcloth to take it off, I don't think that with just a cotton pad you can do the job.
This thing will last me for ages I believe! I keep it in a Lush massage bar tin, since I use it up my therapy massage bar.

The last product is Silky Underwear - (I tried to upload a picture, but I don't know what's happening with this, it returns an error \: ) This is a dusting powder with a lovely Jasmin scent. It has cocoa butter, so it's sooo moisturizing. It's great for people with oily skin. I usually put this on my body, but the scent doesn't lingers too long on my skin, that's okay though. But the main job of this products for me, it's helping me sleep. I have insomnia, really bad insomnia. So I dust this powder on my sheets, pillow and teddy bear and pfff I'm asleep (: I don't know why, but the scent and the softness of this powder on my sheets really calms me down, and I fall asleep right away! I'll always be buying this, and I want to try the others scents as well. One down side to it, it's VERY messy. You have to be careful. When it came with my order, this thing was all over the place, so I never use this while traveling.
