Hi guys! So I’m back again with another edition of ‘take 3 beauty samples’. This month is dedicated to Lush as I had a fair few samples kicking around that deserved to be given a whirl.
The three samples I picked to use were ‘yummy mummy shower gel’, ‘herbalism’ and ‘yummy mummy body conditioner’.
So what did I think?
Yummy Mummy Shower Gel – £4.75 for 100gms
The colour of this is gorgeous, it really reminds me of one of my favourite sweets Palma Violets.
This has a sweet floral scent to it thanks to the inclusion of tonka and geranium oil. I can’t say of heard of tonka before, as far as I was aware it was a brand of toy cars, that’s what you get for having boys, ha ha! Still I liked the smell of it and do actually want to get my hands on some before Mother’s Day. (I think it’s limited release for the occasion).
Herbalism – £6.75 for 100gms
I have to confess this is not the first time I’ve used this, but it’s a sample, so I’m not cheating I promise. I wanted to include this as I actually really like this, I was recommended it by my sister, and to begin with I thought she was mad. It’s such a unique product in texture, and I wasn’t overly fond of the smell. You take a small peice of the herbs and wet it, once rubbed in the palm of your hands it forms a creamy lather, but still retains the scrubby bits. It can be used on both the face and body.
First impressions aside, and after giving it a fair go though I will hold up my hands and admit I was wrong. I’ve actually grown to like the smell, for want of a better description, it smells clean. I have found it has really helped to reduce my breakouts, both on my face and back. Yuck sorry, over share! Any way, I shall definately be purchasing this in the future.
Yummy Mummy Body Conditioner – £19.95 for 240gms
This is one of those hybrid shower gel/moisturisers. It’s smells soooo good and did leave my skin feeling nice.
The issue for me with this though is the price, it so freeking expensive. I have used other far cheaper body conditioners in the past that work just as well, so I can’t justify the expensive.
If you don’t mind the price tag though it smells Amazing!!
So that’s my first impressions of this months beauty samples.
Have you tried any of these items? Do you have any Lush recommendations?
Bye for now, Katy 🙂
