In case you haven’t heard the Lush Christmas cleanser Let The Good Times Roll is being continued by Lush into the New Year. Out of fear that it wasn’t being continued I stocked up on it in the Lush sale though, but I am so happy to hear that is is staying. It is without a doubt my favourite cleanser from Lush. I liked Angels on Bare Skin, Ultra Butter and Aquamarina but this is the superstar cleanser.
It looks like cookie dough and it smells like popcorn, a lovely morning treat. The maize ex-foliates the skin and the corn oil leaves the skin beautifully soft. It is not the best cleanser for taking make-up off unless it is used with a muslin cloth but it is nice to use before bed in replacement of a moisturiser,
I was given a handy little tip by one of the men who work in Lush also, a really obvious one. You can stock up on cleanser and freeze it, because Lush use natural ingredients they do go out of date pretty quickly. I had that problem with the moisturiser because I would never use it all by the sell by date but now I am considering in the future decanting it into smaller tubs and freezing the rest.
I also picked up some shower gel in the sale, as much as I love lush paying £8.00 for some shower gel seems a bit crazy but I didn’t mind paying the sale price. Orange and tequila scented it is a acquired taste but I quite like it, its unusualness attracted me. I really did not like the Twilight gel they had out this year though, as another woman in the shop said ‘it smells like bleach’. Snow Fairy was naturally sold out.
Did anyone try the other Lush Christmas cleanser? I was told that it was very good for eczema.
These are something I have been intrigued by for a long time and on my last visit to Lush after a restless week I decided I’d treat myself and see what they were like. This statement will no doubt make people think I smell and I assure you that I do brush my teeth but I hate toothpaste. The taste of it makes me feel sick in the morning – does anyone else get this? Mouth wash on the other hand I can’t get enough off (especially Dentyl) and with this being a tab I thought it might have met me half way on my clean teeth battle.
I picked up Sparkle since I am a big fan of vanilla –
“Sparkle Toothy Tab is a dose of sweet vanilla flavour and makes for a very effective palate cleanser. The black pepper gives a radiating warmth after you’ve finished brushing”.
This little drawing is on the inside of the box and I think it so super cute and funny to have a vampire related drawing on a tooth product called Sparkle. I think more companies should employ this as marketing. It would certainly make me buy the product. P:S I’m more Interview With The Vampire than Twilight – in case anyone was wondering.
I wish I were are thrilled by the product though. As you can see from the above photo the tablet resembles a mint but it does not taste anything like a mint. To use the tab you simply crush it with your teeth and them brush to create a foam. It does leave your teeth feeling clean but it tastes really weird. It is not what I would call an unpleasant but it isn’t pleasant either. I made my manfriend try one and he was utterly disgusted. I wish I had recorded him trying it. I wish I could describe the taste more but it is just strange. A bit like what I would imagine Bicarbonate soda to taste like back the day when it was used for teeth cleaning.
I have heard that the ‘Dirty’ tooth tabs are really good though so I would like to try them in the future. The tabs do add a great novelty to brushing your teeth and the clean feeling is lovely. I am going to have a give away soon so I will probably throw in the rest of this packet so someone else can try them since I am not likely to use the rest.
