I haven't done a Lush haul in a LONG TIME! But once I saw that they had the holiday stuff out, I had to order my favorite facial cleanser ever. I'm starting my stock up of Buche de Noel RIGHT MEOW!
I ordered from the UK Lush site as the prices are much cheaper, even with the conversion from pounds.
Included in my haul is a Haagenbath and Jacko bath ballistics, Skinny Dip Buttercream, and Let The Good Times Roll and Buche de Noel. You can see my review of Buche de Noel here. Its my favorite!
The description on the Lush site says:
"We popped corn oil, polenta, maize flour and cinnamon in here. The perfect recipe to gently exfoliate, moisturise and soften your skin for those times when you want to get ready for close-ups.
Let The Good Times Roll is a gentle treat for the skin, leaving you soft to the touch with a lingering buttery caramel popcorn fragrance - when you look and feel this good you can give your Body Double the day off!"
This is another solid Lush facial cleanser. If you've never used one of these, what you do is pinch a pea size (I use about a chickpea size), smash it up in your palm, add a tiny bit of water, then rub your hands together to make a sort of paste. What I love about Lush solid cleansers is they are a daily exfoliating cleanser. They are so gentle and skin softening.
So the first thing I noticed about this cleanser? The scent! OMG, this smells so good! I thought I loved the scent of Buche de Noel, it doesn't hold a torch to the scent of this one! While the site says it smells like buttery carmel popcorn, it does have a very carmel-y scent that reminds me of cupcakes! I couldn't place the scent till I started smearing it on my face and a lightbulb went off. It smells like cupcakes!
The second thing I noticed, its very finely milled, so its a very soft exfoliator. Its much more fine than Angels on Bare Skin or BDN.
And thirdly, its very moisturizing. Its more moisturizing than BDN, my skin feel so soft! I could see this being too much for some skin types, but this feels so nice for mine. I keep touching my face, it feels so lovely!
The one thing that I didn't like is the popcorn in this. Yes POPCORN! One thing I dislike about Lush is the unnecessary things in their products. There is no reason for popcorn in this. It doesn't do anything for the cleanser except add more crap in the shower. But other than that, I absolutely LOVE this product, so I can overlook the stupid popcorn.
Looks like I'm going to be hoarding this AND Buche de Noel!
