My Time At Lush Cosmetics-Review and Experience

Hello Everybody!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!!!

I warn you this is a very long post. But its worth it.I promise!!!!!!!!

As some of you may know from my Instagram page I went to Lush Cosmetics on Friday. Before I went in there I kinda already knew a little bit about it but had no clue on earth that I would fall head over heals in love with the store, the idea, the message and the PRODUCTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

First let me tell you a little bit about Lush Fresh Handmade Cosmetics. Lush is a Complete range of handmade natural bath, body, and cosmetic product's including natural soaps, bath bombs, lotions, hand creams, foot creams, lipsticks, shampoo's, makeup, makeup remover and body scrubs. All these products are made with fresh picked and grown ingredients. They do not do animal testing nor do they work with companies that do animal testing. They use farms locally and foreign. Most of their products have an expiration date. They also have a lot of loose products to reduce the use of plastic. example lotion, shampoos and conditions bars. All ingredients and dates products are made are on the label. They also have hundreds of charities they donate to with the proceeds of their products. I suggest you read the full story on their website. Its actually very interesting. You can read HERE.  

I went on my lush journey with a friend of mind and both of us had an idea what we wanted. Lemony Flutter is what we wanted. Lol. I heard so many wonderful things about it I had to try it.  We were both on the web site all week poking around. So when we got there we were really excited. We were greeted immediately by the Lush employees. We told them what we wanted. They showed it to us, then ask us if we wanted to try some things. Of course I said yes. We tried the Ocean Salt face and body scrubs on our hands. We massage it in and then rinse, then dried. Our hands felt like a babies asses!! Seriously No lie. My hands have never felt that way in my life.The looked better, they felt better. Needless to say this lead to an hour long visit at Lush Fresh handmade Cosmetics. During our visit we asked a million questions and not once did any of the 3 young ladies attending to us get upset, frustrated or annoyed. In fact they were excited to tell us, teach us, Test on us. They loved the products they sold and it showed.  We tested products, asked questions. I swear we saw every inch of that store. So with out further ado. Please see my photographic journey,purchases, wish list and reviews below.





 
 
My Purchases
 
PUTTY FOR YOUR HANDS
It's a soap! Its a hand lotion!
 
That right!!!  You read right. Its a freaking soap lotion. SHUT THE FRONT DOOR.
I have used this multiple times since I got it and I love it . It moisturizes and cleans at the same time. WOW!!!! Your hands feel refreshed soft and clean.

 
You wet you hands. Put a small piece of the putty in your hands, add some water, not to much, just like picture, then rub hands together like your washing it. It does not have a lather. looks like milk on your hands. Then rinse and dry.  Soft clean hands. This in combination with all the other products has changed my hands.
 
 
 
Lemony Flutter-(The product of the hour)
does your cuticles justice. Ive have been using it for two days straight and I see and feel the difference in my cuticles. I feel they are smooth. No more stray rough pieces around my cuticles.  a little goes a long way. This product is greasy so use a little. I suggest you use it after you wash your hands and every single night before you go to bed. When I wake up in the morning my cuticles looks so healthy. I use after a mani or pedi. I cant stop starring at my hands. From my understanding you can use this on most body parts, but not recommended for face use. To greasy!
WARNING
do not leave your lemony flutter in the car or in the sun will IT WILL MELT.
Or you will have to put it in the fridge to re harden 
 
TINY HANDS- Is a Moisturizing bar. You rub it in your hands like soap a few times. Then stop. This to is greasy so not to much. You will notice the feeling of lotion. When you finish rub your hands like your putting on lotion. And you will definitely notice the moisturized feel and look. I like to use this in combination of the lemony flutter. By itself is fine as well. It depends on how much moisture your looking for. 
WARNING!!
 do not leave your hand in the car or in the sun IT will melt.
Or you will have to put your hand in the fridge to re harden.
 Like i had to do. This is how it looked, But it came back to normal. lol


 
The case does not come with the product.
I thought it was best so it does not get crap in it.
Especially if you want to travel with it.

 
Bubble gum Lip Scrub
 
I know none nail related. But I had to tell you guys after you use it.
 You will want to kiss yourself. Your lips are soft and kissable.
 
Lush Times- Come with all purchases.It is your guide to EVERYTHING LUSH!!!!!!!!!!
 
 

100% OF THE PROCEEDS OF THIS PRODUCT GOES TO CHARITY
 
Ocean Salt
This is the #1 item on my wish list. I loved it when I tested it out. My hands need it.lol. PS folks it has freaking VODKA in it, Shut the front door. This I'm gonna get at my next visit to Lush. SOON!!!!!
 
I'm in love with LUSH and their products. Between that and their great customer service, I will be returning. I honestly feel like my cuticles have been transformed. Even with nothing on them. They appear moisturized and not dry like they were. This is my go to product for my cuticles and I don't think I will be using anything else. I have used dozens of cuticle creams and hand lotions. Nothing compares. You can purchase this ON LINE! as well as instore. No matter hair, nails, skin or makeup. Lush has something for you. Man or Women. Your man does construction and his hands feel like sand paper go to lush. If his feet smell like dead man walking go to lush. There is something for everyone. The only con is they are a little pricey, but Its worth it!!! 
  

Disclaimer- Lush did provide these products to me. I purchases and experience this on my own by just visiting the store and enjoying the experience. I cannot guarantee you the same experience!

Ocean Salt is so amazing! I use it before shaving my legs and after I dry and lotion up they're so damn smooth. Insane.
