The Lush products I won’t review no.2.

Hello readers! 🙂

I am back with another Lush post, so if Lush isn’t your cup of tea, this is your warning!

I thought I’d write a post on the products that I won’t be reviewing. 

This might seem a little bit random, but some of the reasons behind me not wanting to review these products I feel may be of some value to fellow Lushies. The products I have chosen to not review are generally either not too healthy for you or are not vegan.

This post will only be including Lush’s products under the Face category, so that it will be a little shorter.

———————————————————–

Products>Face>Cleansers

I personally will not be trying the ‘Kalamazoo Beard and Facial Wash’. It does sound like a lovely product, and maybe I will test it out sometime in the future, but I do think it is intended for a beard, which is something I do not have!

I also will not be trying ‘Ultrabland’, ‘Ocean Salt’ or ‘Ocean Salt Alcohol Free’, as none of them are vegan, so I feel it is unethical to purchase them.

Finally, I won’t be a lot of the cleansers in this category, due to them containing comedogenic, pore-clogging oils and butters. When I first learnt about comedogenic ingredients, I got up the list of ingredients for a random Lush product (it was actually Movis,) and searched every single ingredient – and whether they were comedogenic.

After I was done, I noticed that any ingredients that were comedogenic were either butters or oils, so now if I want to use a Lush product on my face, I first check if any of the oils or butters are comedogenic, and if they are, I will not use that product.

I have tried some of these comedogenic cleansers, and will continue to use them until they are finished so that I can give them a review. I don’t think I will choose to purchase any comedogenic products for my face in the future. I think all of Lush’s products are lovely, but I do not think they are worth using if it means increasing the risk of developing acne!

The following Lush cleansers all contain comedogenic ingredients: Movis, Ocean Salt – Self Preserving, Ocean Salt – Self Preserving and Alcohol Free, Let The Good Times Roll, Fresh Farmacy, Coalface, Dark Angels and 9 To 5. This actually means that I will only be purchasing the following in the future: ‘Grease Lightning’, ‘Angels on Bare Skin’, ‘Herbalism’ and ‘Aqua Marina’.

Products>Face>Toners

None of these are comedogenic, and they are all vegan, so I look forward to trying these all out!

Products>Face>Moisturisers

This is a very disappointing selection of Lush products for me.

‘Skin’s Shangri La’, ‘Gorgeous’, ‘Cosmetic Lad’, ‘Vanishing Cream’, ‘Enchanted Eye Cream’ and ‘Million Dollar Moisturiser’ are all only vegetarian and not vegan, so I will not be purchasing any of these in the future.

Incredibly, every single other moisturiser in this section, besides the ‘Full Of Grace Serum Bar’, contains cocoa butter – an extremely comedogenic (pore clogging) ingredient. This means that I will not be purchasing any of these in the future either. Unfortunately, the ‘Full of Grace Serum Bar’ also contains slightly comedogenic ingredients, so I won’t be purchasing this either!

I am so disappointed with this category from Lush – I’d really love to buy all my skin care from them. Hopefully they will come up with a moisturiser that contains non-comedogenic butters and/or oils, or maybe a water based moisturiser.

Products>Face>Masks

‘Mask of Magnaminty’, ‘Ayesha’, ‘BB Seaweed’, ‘Cosmetic Warrior’, ‘Love Lettuce’, ‘Brazened Honey’, and the ‘Mask of Magnaminty – Self Preserving’ are all only vegetarian and are not vegan, so I will not be purchasing any of these.

‘Oatifix’, ‘Cupcake’, ‘Catastrophe Cosmetic’ and ‘Rosy Cheeks’ all unfortunately contain comedogenic ingredients, so I will not be purchasing them.

This leaves just ‘Cup O’ Coffee’ and ‘Don’t Look At Me’, both of which I will be reviewing in the future.

Products I have purchased and am currently reviewing from this section: Cup O’ Coffee

Products I have reviewed from this section: N/A



Products>Face>Teeth

Okay, so none of the teeth products from Lush contain fluoride, which for some people might be great! For me however, I like to follow dentist’s recommendations and use a toothpaste that contains fluoride. I have tried Lush’s teeth products, and they do seem to clean my teeth very well. I just feel like dentist’s probably know best, and they recommend I use fluoride toothpaste.

This means that I will not be purchasing any more teeth products from Lush in the future!

Products>Face>Shaving

I don’t really have any significant facial hair… so I do not plan to buy any of these products to be used on my face!

Products I have purchased and am currently reviewing from this section: (N/A because I wouldn’t use shaving products on my face)

Products>Face>Lips

‘Orange Flower’, ‘Sunkissed’, ‘Whipstick’, ‘Honey Trap’, ‘Lip Service’, and ‘It Started With A Kiss’ are all only vegetarian and are not vegan, so I will not be purchasing these in the future. 

I am however excited to try out the rest of the lip products in this section!

Products I have purchased and am currently reviewing from this section: Buttered Brazils Lip Balm

Products I have reviewed from this section: Popcorn Lip Scrub



That’s all for Lush’s Face products that I won’t be reviewing! The next post will be on Lush’s hair products that I will not be reviewing in the future. 

Have a wonderful day!
