Lush -Bestsellers and Emotional Brilliance Review

I have long been a fan of the gorgeous LUSH. Looking for amazing handmade products that are good for you and smell incredible? So fresh you can FEEL it? Lush has it all. Made with little or no preservative or packaging, using only vegetarian ingredients and they tell you when they were made! I love the fact my new body lotion  was made by Ben – this month! Being a big fan I tested out some must have favourites along with some new additions that are just brilliant….

Dream cream

Dream Cream (£10.95)  ‘Our Number One Product’ says Lush. We say – SPOT ON! This gorgeous velvety body cream smooths on beautifully, feels instantly nourishing and comforting – and it absorbs quickly. Its the oat milk in this cream that is heaven sent. Also made with rose water, rose absolute, cocoa butter , chamomile blue , tea tree and olive oil, its been known to cure a whole host of skin problems like eczema,  as well as being the go-to cream for daily beautifying. The scent isn’t over powering so it won’t interfere with your perfume. Its Lush’s serious best seller and we know why. Serious smoother soother – essential!


Buffy Body Butter (£5.95) It’s a full on skin softening experience. The bar is just the right size for holding in your palm  as you rub it  over wet skin in circular motions. The exfoliating beads work straight away – and the incredible scent  of lemon and cocoa butter is released- getting you in the holiday mood. As soon as I washed off, my skin felt like silk – and shimmered! Perfect to buff your bod before your holiday or for a regular treat. Gorgeous. 


Stepping Stone Foot-Scrub (£2.95) Smells great! This adorable foot shaped scrub and soak  in one, made my bathroom lemon scented for days. Rub over tired tootsies in a hot bath. The pumice and jojoba oil polished my feet while dissolving into a pool of aqua cool all around me – beautiful. 

Emotional Brilliance This is a genius idea – choose your make up – depending on your MOOD…..

For me…..


Bubbly (Pink) &  Vibrance (Orange) Liquid Lipsticks  (£14.50) These were brilliant!  Stained like a lip tint. Shined like a gloss. Great texture. Perfect for slicking on for lasting colour without lipsticks usual fade out issues.  The patent contains an incredible skin softening formula that improves the condition of your lips. Made with jojoba and rose.  Line your lips with the tip of the sponge and fill in – and for  subtle look – blot.  

Bubbly was my favourite – a gorgeous rose pink really brought out my green eyes while orange Vibrance was lovely – a shimmer shot  of sunshine for the lips. Ideal size too for popping in your handbag and glossing on the go.  They also double up as a cream blush. 


Eyes Bright Mascara (£12)This was a very impressive product, small but really packs a powerful punch. I had strong dramatic lashes within moments, the colour was intense too. Wheatgrass is the magic ingredient which promises irritation free flutters. The gentle formula contains only 1 preservative rather than the usual 4-6 in most others mascaras which makes it pretty special.  Plus it contains vitamins that actually condition and nourish your lashes. – sold! It was the perfect size to slip into a small handbag for an evening out. 


Healthy – Green liquid liner (£14.50) I usually go for coloured liners that shimmer and only use liquid when I’m creating cat eyes and wanting a smoky intense look at night. I had never really thought about using a more matte green but this fresh grass coloured liquid liner took me by surprise – I tried it and found it really lovely, versatile and wearable. I combined the liner with the rose pink  Bubbly lips and had an instantly brighter look that took me from afternoon meeting to drinks with friends. The green actually matched my eyes and gave me subtle but enhanced look. It was the perfect fresh Spring feel. In the daylight it just looked pretty and as I wore it into the evening the colour blended and faded to a slinky green grey. Made with Damask Rose. A lovely consistency  doesn’t set straight away so you can blend and perfect. 


Lifted – Yellow Cream Eyeshadow (£14.50) This yellow eye brightener lifted my spirits on a less than bright Spring day. You can use alone, as a shadow, a highlighter or under another colour to really open up the eye. Made with amazing cupuaçu butter, almond and jojoba –  its good for your skin too.

Go and spin that wheel! Great colours, so much variety and such a cool idea. I  love the labels attached to the little bottles! They give the whole range a cute apothecary feel, which just adds to Lush’s authenticity. They make gorgeous products, naturally.

Get some LUSH in your life!
