Top 5 Lush Products




Take one look at my Instagram feed (alicespake) and you will kind of get the idea of how much I love Lush products. I've been buying their products for years so it was only right that I did a post on my Top five Lush Products. I've tried to include a bit of everything from some old favourites to some newbies from Oxford Street. These are five items I would never be without. 

Lord of Misrule shower cream -
My favourite bath bomb is Lord of Misrule but with it being limited edition I can only get hold of it when their Winter range comes out. When Lush opened their flagship store in Oxford Street, they introduced Lord of Misrule shower cream. I quickly bought one and use it religiously, packed full of patchouli, peppercorn and black pepper with a subtle hint of vanilla, it's a real treat for your senses and one I love as it's so distinctive, I could sniff it out blindfolded. 

BB Seaweed fresh face mask -
There is nothing I love more than laying back in a hot bath with a fresh face mask on. I've tried a few different ones from Lush now but I always go back to BB Seaweed. My skin has changed a lot as I've hit my mid twenties and this calming face mask is everything my skin needs and more. With fresh seaweed, ground almonds, rose absolute and aloe vera, it's perfect for anyone suffering with dry or irritated skin. 

Cyanide Pill bath bomb -
Cyanide pill is a Lush Oxford Street exclusive and comes in the shape of a capsule. Whenever any friends go to London, they always bring one back for me as they haven't been rolled out in all stores yet. Containing lemon, cedarwood, rosewood and almonds oils, the scent is smoky with a hint of citrus which I find quite uplifting. The bath bomb fizzes away really quickly leaving acid yellow bath water, a hint of silver lustre and the sound of popping candy. Cyanide Pill leaves my skin soft, supple and smelling of woody essentials. I really hope this is available in all stores soon. 

Hottie massage bar -
This little gem has been doing the rounds for a while and for good reason. Hottie plays a big part in a couple of the Lush spa treatments as it contains ginger and black pepper oils to help with circulation and any knotted areas. I love using this when I've had a full on pamper evening as it's extremely moisturising and always leaves me feeling more relaxed and less stressed. Thanks to the added cocoa butter, Hottie moves over the skin really easily and the bumps on the bar also work well on any knots. 

Golden Handshake hot hand mask -
The final product is one of their newest launches, Golden Handshake, a hot hand mask perfect for treating hard working hands. I have to pop and blister a lot of medication at work so using this once a month is the perfect treat for my mitts. Avocado, argan and castor oil help soothe each nook of your hands, leaving them soft and happy. The product does take some time to dissolve but it's worth the wait. You can either soak your hands in the treatment for twenty minutes or massage into hands and rinse. I always look forward to my monthly hand treatment with this stick of goodness. 

What are your favourite Lush products? Do we have any of the same?

  2. You've got some fantastic picks! I swear by Hottie, It helps me so much with muscle pain and Cyanide Pill completely breaks my heart. For the sole reason its not everywhere, I really hope its launched soon because the Glasgow to London trip for it isn't ideal haha. I'm adding BB Seaweed to the shopping list too, anything for my dry skin, thanks for the recommendation!

  4. When I first smelt Lord Of Misrule I really didn't like it but then I got it in a gift set and fell in love with it! Really hope it returns this year so that I can try the bath bomb too x
