Lush | Favourites & Most Used

As many of my friends will tell you, I could talk about Lush products for ages and it's quite hard for me to narrow them down into a list of my favourites, so I've compiled a small list of what I've been using a lot lately. You can see from the images that I have a lot of stuff, so much I've filled two HUGE 15" square boxes, so it was definitely a struggle to make this list, but here we go.

First I'd like to kick off with this amazing scent. Inspired by the Beat Generation, this perfume is smokey, strong and long lasting! When I smell it, I can almost see Allen Ginsberg and Lucien Carr glancing over their typewriters, plotting their next mission to form The New Vision. I love to wear this amazing scent when I'm going out for drinks or to a club, the heat in the air assists in development of the oils and release them, causing a more intense aroma. I love it.

Okay, I'm cheating with this one, as it's really three. All go hand in hand, honestly. For he days I choose Karma, I use all straight after each other, obviously using the soap first, followed by the Kreme and finally the perfume. The Kreme is essentially a body lotion, which lasts for so long and all you need is a tiny amount, so it's also cost effective. The perfume comes in liquid and stick form. I'll use the stick whilst getting dressed and use it almost as a body balm and once I'm dressed and about to head out of the door, I'll spray a spritz or two over the top.

I didn't really use this much in summer, but I've broke it out ready for spring and summer. A spray of this under your shirts will help a lot if you get hot easy. Since it's a menthol product, it helps cool the skin without leaving you feeling like you have loads of product on the skin. I've tried other cooling products, but this is by far the best I've used. 

I'm a huge fan of the Lush facial cleansers and this is without a doubt my favourite. Mixing sugar with charcoal is a brilliant exfoliant, and when blending it with rhassoul mud, it also gives a full deep cleanse! I use this twice a week. I would use old cleansers daily, but I found using this daily on my skin would be more problematic. I love the after feeling the skin has after using it, the avocado oil is a great moisturiser!

Okay, so there's just a few of my most used products! These will probably change as I do like to mix things up every now and again, but it will be Lush products. Many live for their Chanel or Dior, but I love my fresh, natural products. They work and they're affordable, what more could a guy want?
