Lush Recycling Scheme

Lush Recycling Scheme

Back in May I took my first trip to Lush in a very long time (haul here.) Since then, I've taken a monthly trip to get a new face mask and try out a few products. Lush have a recycling scheme where you bring back five full sized pots or tubes and get a free face mask.

The first time I went to lush, my skin was really dry so I picked up the Oatifix. With banana, almond, oatmeal and kaolin it sounded like a miracle worker! It really did help to add moisture to my skin, but I'm just not a fan of the texture. The oatmeal makes the mask super thick and I find it hard to spread over my face without dropping and wasting a lot of product.

I also bought a tub of BIG Sea Salt Shampoo, not to help with volume, but to give my hair a deep clean. As I only shampoo my hair twice a week, it can be pretty hard to clean in two shampoos, especially as the first shampoo never lathers properly. I feel like I can give my hair a good scrub with BIG and it's left feeling super clean. It lasts me a good while as well!

The second mask I tried out was the Catastrophe Cosmetic. I get bad breakouts around my chin and jaw when I go out drinking, so I decided this would be a good one for when I got back from Ireland. Again, the mask worked well on my skin, but I found the texture hard to work with and felt like I ended up wasting a lot of product.

The last mask out of my empties to return is Love Lettuce. This one has little grains that help to gently exfoliate the skin, leaving it super soft and fresh.It's the easiest out of the lot to apply, so it's no surprise that it lasted longer!

The item I most recently purchased from Lush is the H'suan Wen Hua Hair Treatment. I was looking for something that won't pull the colour out of my hair too much and with ingredients like egg, banana and avocado, I couldn't resist. The mask is put onto dry hair, wherein lies my problem with it. I'd say my hair is between mid length and long, is of medium density. I only got two good uses and one sparing use out of the mask and with the tub costing just under £10, it's definitely not something I can afford to purchase regularly!

I feel like this post makes it seem like I'm moaning, but I do really like Lush products! I love the BIG shampoo and the Sea Salt Spray, so I always pick up those when I finish them. I also like the Tea Tree Toner and to be honest, the masks are great, it's just me being fussy!

What are your favourite Lush Products?

  1. This sounds like a good idea - and also the quickest way for me to empty my purse! I'm not sure if my local store do this as it's very tiny, but will have to go and see! Tania xx taniamichele.blogspot.co.uk
