Ok I know 🙄what you are thinking ..really Nida❓ Where’s the no pun intended disclaimer 😋❓
Haha! I couldn’t resist 😋. Hey if you can’t actually have the Lush life ✨hint.. Zara Larsson 😉. Might as well try the next best thing 😋ok that’s my last lame joke I promise 😁.
But seriously incase you are wondering if I had been living under a rock all this time I probably was. It wasn’t until last year that I really got into actively using natural 🍃,organic products.
Since I’ve been hearing so much about Lush by bloggers I figured I had to try them out. Which is easier said then done as the only Lush store here is in Dubai Mall 🙄.
So anyway I made it a point to hunt down the Lush store which is located in a corner btw which was why I never noticed it before 😖.
When I was in California I had been to the Lush store several times with my bff who is an avid fan but I never bought anything. What can I say I was living in the age of ignorance. 😶
Since I was out of body and hand cream I decided to try those out first. After much sniffing and sampling and wearing out two of the sales associates who eventually gave up and left me to it. I picked out the Dream Cream and the Handy Gurugu.
First off I love the packaging it’s very minimalist just a black, plastic pot with chalk like font. On the side of the pot is a caricature 💁🏽and name of the person who made and packaged your cream as well as the expiration date ( thank you!).
The Dream Cream 💕came in a 240 gram pot and despite my initial skepticism at it being able to moisturize well ( it has a very light consistency). It actually keeps my skin soft for a good 7-8 hours without it being greasy and a little goes a long way 😱. In general Lush products don’t have strong fragrances since they mostly use essential oils instead of artificial fragrances, so Body shop and Bath and Body Works fans who are used to being hit in the face 👊🏻with a strong whiff 🌪the moment they open the jars or tubes might be disappointed .
Personally I didn’t mind it at all, I’d rather the product does what it claims i.e long lasting moisture with all natural ingredients🍃. The most discernible scent was that of their patchouli cream which I will try once I run out of the Dream Cream. My rating 5/5 ✨ The Hand Gurugu is a buttery hand cream which moisturizes without overly greasing your hands. It’s not so much a cuticle cream which is what I was looking for but I like it as a hand cream not stellar though. It is also concentrated so you need a tiny amount. Comes in a 100 gram jar. My rating 4/5✨ All in all I am happy with my Lush experience and am definately looks forward to try their other products.
Are you a Lush fan? What products do you recommend I try from them next? Do let me know in the comments 💕
