For a lot of people, Lush is known as a store that just sells bath products. Although their Bath Bombs and Bubble Bars are some of our favourites, they have a wide range of other cool products from hair care to skin care. What makes it even better is that it’s all natural and cruelty-free! We thought we’d show you some of our favourite Lush products which aren’t for the bath, so if you’re new to Lush or just looking to try something a bit different, this post is for you!
For a lot of Lush fans, this is an obvious one, but a lot of people may not know they exist, let alone what they’re for! Shower jellies are soapy goodness in the shape of jelly, which look and smell good enough to eat (although we can assure you, they do not taste nice at all…). We usually cut ours up into little cubes, then use one or two in a shower puff to lather it up. It’s an alternative to a shower gel and a lot more fun! Shower jellies come in two sizes, 100g (£3.75) and 240g (£7.50) and there are a range of different scents such as Needles and Pines, 93,000 Miles, Refresher and our personal favourite, Whoosh! There is also a website called the Lush Kitchen, which often sell exclusive Shower Jellies, but that’s another story!
A Lip Scrub is an essential, especially in the colder months. They’re a popular Lush product amongst bloggers and it’s no wonder why. Not only do they exfoliate your lips to extreme softness but they taste amazing too! The standard Lip Scrubs come in Bubblegum, Popcorn and Mint and there are often limited edition scrubs released too. Priced at just £5.50 these pots last ages and allow you to remove any dead skin from your lips, perfect to use before applying lipstick!
Another great shower product is a solid scrub. They contain sea salt/granulated sugar, which helps to exfoliate your skin as you scrub away. The two solid scrubs Lush have to offer are Rub Rub Rub (the solid alternative to the potted Rub Rub Rub shower scrub) which is made from salt and The Rough with the Smooth which contains granulated sugar, for a softer exfoliation. Lush also released Salt and Peppermint Bark last Christmas, a green, minty scrub, similar to Rub Rub Rub. The body scrubs are £5.95 each and depending on how much you scrub at one time, they last for ages!
Shampoo bars are a travel essential. They are basically shampoo in solid form, meaning they are easy to take anywhere with you. They easily lather up on your hair and we’ve been told they last around 80 uses, which is pretty impressive! Each shampoo has a specific purpose, whether your hair struggles to grow or is prone to getting greasy there is a bar for every type. The shampoo bars are priced at only £5.95 which to some people may seem like a lot, however, we’ve found that they last a lot longer than bottles of shampoo so it actually works out cheaper!
Now these soaps may not look anything special but they’re SO good for your skin. A lot of people prefer to treat themselves to a new bath product, since it’s a bit more fun than buying something for your skin. But hey, your skin needs to be treated every so often too! The facial soaps are so easy to use, you simply lather them up in your hands and gently scrub your face. They leave your skin feeling so smooth and refreshed. Each soap has a different purpose, Fresh Farmacy being to soothe and calm the skin while Coalface works to prevent oily skin.
We hope that you’ve found this post helpful and that next time you pop into Lush you can try something a little bit different! After all, you’re missing out on some amazing products if you only head for the bath bombs!
