Bringing Back The Favourites Of The Bunch | Lush Fan Favourites Range (Grass, Karma Kream, King Of Skin and Godiva).

Hey everyone! 

Welcome to a brand new blog post! I was recently sent some amazing products from Lush PR and I thought that today I would talk to you all about it.

Grass Shower Gel 

Spring is nearly upon us and the first sign of Spring is normally the smell of freshly cut Grass. 

This shower gel was once a staple at Lush. As it has been discontinued for some years now, fans have been begging Lush to bring it back and they have finally listened. This shower gel contains Sandalwood. Bergamot and Neroli Oils. In my opinion, these three oils help to create a sort of creamy citrus heavy scent. The addition of Wheatgrass Juice helps to push that sort of green fresh scent that everyone associates with the scent of grass. Is it a weird scent to some? Probably but I think it is one of those that you love and found intriguing and some would find disgusting. To me, I quite like this Shower Gel. I think that it will be amazing for those two days a year in England that are quite warm in the Summer or for when I want a scent that is going to help perk me up in the morning. I have realised that this scent performs differently in different products. For example, the Lotion that was available in a Kitchen Box sometime ago is very creamy compared to the rest of the range where as the Perfume is very citrus centric to me with only a touch of fresh green notes to it. I’ve used this gel twice snd it is light, strongly and beautifully scented and definitely adds a spring to my step when I have used it first thing in the morning. This gel is priced at £10 for a 120g bottle.

Karma Kream Body Lotion 

Karma Kream has forever been one of my favourite products from Lush so when I heard that it was coming back, back, back again to stores I was thrilled. Karma Kream consists of Fair Trade Organic. Cocoa Butter, Patchouli, Brazilian Orange, Lemongrass, Lavandin, Elemi and Siberian Fir Needle Oils. The Cocoa Butter provides moisture whilst all of the rest provide that signature Karma scent that just transports you to another realm or brings you back to the first ever time that you smelt it. I absolutely adore this product.

To me, the main sort of notes of this fragrance are the Patchouli, Orange and Fir Needle. I think that the Lemongrass, Elemi and Lavandin help to boost these three main ingredients just to help them come across a little bit more strongly on the skin. The best way to sum this fragrance up, is imagine that you’ve walked into an incense store and you can smell sort of a mixture of Patchouli Incense burning and a waft of Orange from bowl of Oranges at the same time whilst being able to pick up other notes in the distance. 

The Kream is moisturising, rich and light all at the same time for me which is hard to achieve especially as my skin is dry and forever loves thick formulas. I’ve even used this on irritated parts of my body and it has nourished them wonderfully. This product is strongly scented and I love that as it means I can put a bit on in the morning, use the Karma Solid Perfume and be done for the day all whilst still being complimented on my fabulous fragrance. If I really want to, I just apply Karma Kream and I can still smell it by the end of the day or go completely all out with the Liquid Fragrance for a special occasion. It’s definitely a unique scent that you will either love or loathe and I absolutely love this scent. Definitely worth a try if you haven’t yet and would be perfect for someone who needs a little TLC and me time. I hope that this stays around for good! Priced at £20.

King Of Skin Body Butter

Rub some royalty on your body as this is truly the King Of Skin. King Of Skin is a product that I think was discontinued too early so I am glad that it has triumphantly returned. This product contains Fair Trade Organic Cocoa Butter, Fair Trade Shea Butter, Fair Trade Bananas, Oat Milk, Fresh Avocado, Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, Organic Jojoba Oil. Tangerine, Lavender and Sandalwood Oils, Rose Absolute and Olibanium Resinoid. All of the oils such as Jojoba and Coconut and the Oat Milk and Banana entire that this product makes your skin super soft and well is why this product is the King Of Skin. The main fragrance notes that I get from this are Tangerine, and Sandalwood. The rest are very much in the background compared to these two. This means that if you’re not the biggest fan of Lavender then you should be fine with this product as the Lavender isn’t that detectable. 

The way to use this is to glide it onto wet skin, massage it in and then rinse off in the shower or bath. I’ve been using this for the past few weeks and have really enjoyed using it. I have severely dry skin and this nourishes it beautifully/ Priced at £9.

Godiva Shampoo Bar 

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, its a seampoo and conditioner bar! This Shampoo bar contains Cypress Oil, Jasmine Absolute, Palmarosa Oil and Ylang Ylang Oil. This bar also contains Fair Trade Organic Cocoa Butter, Organic Jojioba Oil, Camelia Oil, Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, Organic Macadamia Nut Oil and Cupuacu Butter. This conditioning elixir that is added to the bar makes the bar a shampoo and conditioner bar. A 2 in 1 some may say. To me, the scent reminds me of a mixture of Lilies, Jasmine and musk. A weird yet slightly intoxicating mix. Floral but with that sort can’t put my finger on it undertone to it. If you are a fan of Lush then you may know this scent through the Lust/Flying Fox products that are sold at Lush. My hair is weird with bars from Lush so when I find one I stick to it so I’m intrigued to see how my hair gets on with this one. My hair normally needs a lot of moisture so it may enjoy this one. I will get back to you when I have properly tried it. I think that from scent alone, my friend Michelle would love this bar. Priced at £9.
