(Don’t) Look At Me Now

Don't Look At Me

Minty aroma with a touch of zest – Don’t Look At Me Fresh Face Mask is one of the newest non-holiday products to debut in LUSH North America. As with all LUSH face masks, this product is only available in-store and should be refrigerated and used before the expiration date.

Reminding me of a texture similar to the beloved Ocean Salt, this mask gently moisturizes and exfoliates the face. Plus, the refreshing scent makes it the perfect morning pick-me-up! I highly recommend this product for not so sensitive skin types, since the citrus ingredients mixed with the rice exfoliant could irritate the skin.

Snow Globe Soap Review

So for my second post today, I wanted to talk about the LUSH holiday soap, Snow Globe! This is a super cool soap. I love everything about it. So time to review!

Here are some images of the soap:

Positives:

  • Great aroma – I love the smell of this product. It is very citrus oriented. It awakes you!! I do not recommend this soap for a relaxing, night bath… it is maybe to awakening! So this soap makes for a great morning shower.
  • Cool design – I love the colors and design of this soap. The large shape of this soap is a huge snow globe that has chunks of “snow” in it! So from my pictures, you can kind of tell that I got the bottom of the globe with some pieces of white “snow.”

Negatives:

  • Awkward lather – This soap does have a really odd texture and lather. The blue part of the soap does not lather at all while the white chunks lather A LOT. I still wish the whole thing lathered a bit more… but I wish that with every post!

Snow Globe is an awesome winter soap. It is very different from Christmas scents or other holiday scents which makes it super unique! The smell is great and awakening while the design is seriously awesome. Let me know if you have tried this holiday soap!

LUSH Orange Jelly Soap

So I have so so so many different LUSH Holiday products that I need to review! Here is one right now: Orange Soap! This was a pretty unique soap LUSH created for the holidays because it is primarily oranges. I was surprised how much I enjoyed using this citrus infused soap!

Here are some product images:

Positives:

  • Great smell – Obviously… this smell has a strong scent of oranges! It is very very very citrus oriented. I would only suggest this soap to people who enjoy oranges. If you hate orange smells/things, this is definitely NOT a soap for you. The fresh ingredients that create the scent in this soap are freshly squeezed orange oil and Brazilian orange oil.
  • Awesome color – The color of this soap is great! It is a highlighter orange! The top of the soap is also very beautiful. It has an orange jelly layer composed of sliced oranges and jelly.

Negatives:

  • Weak lather – I was a bit disappointed with the lather of this soap. It barley bubbled… actually it did not bubble at all. Even though the lather was non existent, I still feel like it did the job! I have noticed that not a lot of LUSH soaps lather up to extreme amounts!
  • Tan legs – When using this soap, my legs turned a orange/sun kissed tan! I guess that the orange is so so so strong it causes the lather to be very tan when used on fair skin… My skin is especially light so it was even tanner for me!

Overall, I really enjoyed this holiday soap. I think it should be a must for all orange and citrus beauty lovers! It has a great smell and product image. Unfortunately, this product was only available from LUSH during the holiday season. I am sure it will be out next holiday!
