In August, 2013, I was fortunate to attend Beauty Con Industry Night. One of the brands that was at the event was Lush. I received one of their popular cleanser.

Product Review: Lush Let The Good Times Roll

Where to purchase: Lush stores and online at
Price: $12.95 for 3.5 oz/ 100g

Made in Canada

Description on the packaging: Our seasonal, popcorn-inspired facial cleanser. Smoothing, soothing and ever so slightly warming on the skin.
Thoughts: Not only was I excited to see Lush at Beauty Con Industry Night, I was excited to try their cleanser!
I actually found it cool they mention the person who made my cleanser, as well as, the expiration date. By looking at the dates, the product is good for 3 months or was good.
Here's how the product looks.
Here's a closer look at the cleanser.

Now for my overall opinion... First of all, the reason why I don't purpose Lush products is because they expire before I even get a chance to finish them or even get close. This product is a perfect example. It's end of January and I only used half. The sad part is that I used it way past the expiration date. Secondly and out of curiosity, I wanted to see what happens when the product gets bad. I know it sounds nasty, but I enjoy experimenting. I noticed this week the product had orange/reddish spots. That was a sign that it's time for me to change cleanser.

Now I will go more into the product and the first thing I will talk about is scent. I've heard a mixture of people's opinion. To me, it smells like cinnamon. It's a very strong scent some people might not like it. I personally like the smell. It's refreshing but it is strong. The scent even lingers on the towel the next morning after washing your face with the cleanser. The product can be a little discriminating. It says cleanser but on the website, it says exfoliating cleanser. It's not good to exfoliate twice a week. Thinking it's only a cleanser, I actually used it on the other days that I did not exfoliate. So basically, I exfoliated the whole week since I started this product. Even exfoliating everyday, it's not rough on the skin. It's very gentle and feels good. It left a smooth feeling and my skin felt a little bit more hydrated than other cleansers I have used in the past. Now I can see why people liked this product and brought it back permanently.

* Natural ingredients.
* Noticeable expiration date.
* Smells like cinnamon.
* Gentle on the skin.
* Skin feels soft and hydrated.
* Recyclable pots; they give you a free mask for 5 Lush pots.

* Product is only good for 3 months.
* Strong scent.

Would repurchase: Maybe, but I am leaning towards yes.

I adore Lush products, but I mostly use their shampoos and body washes :D I've always wanted to try their skincare but because my skin seem to love Mario Badescu, I'm a little scared of trying! :|



Eat. Live. Love. Repeat.

sounds like a good product :) I think i might like this and i should probably get one for me and my mom so we can finish it before expiry date!

I wonder if you can freeze some of it to make it last longer? It sounds amazing, but I am worried I would have so much left before it expires

I would never be able to finish the product within 3 months. Too bad because the product itself sounds great (even if it looks weird in the pot ;p)!

I've used Lush's body wash and it's pretty decent. I'm not too sure about their shampoos. Maybe I'll look into that. Mario Badescu does have good skin care products. Do you have sensitive skin?

Ahleessa said...

That's such a great idea! I didn't think about sharing the product.

Ahleessa said...

Now, I'm curious if you can freeze them. Thanks for putting ideas in my head... hehe~ :p

Ahleessa said...

I was pretty impressed with the product. Someone commented about sharing the product with someone. I think that's a great idea... hehe~
