Lush Herbalism Cleanser was too mild to affect me

Lush Herbalism Cleanser, photo, review
There are some products that become almost 'cult' products. When you try finding reviews for those, you would find only rave reviews, but in the sea, you might also come across ones that would say otherwise. Mind, this post might be one of those. Rather, Lush Herbalism turned out to be one of those much raved about products that did not work for me. Lets begin


When I first got this, I as just so happy because this was also my first lush product. In the ingredient list I found loads of nice herbal and natural ingredients and the product is supposed to expire in three months!! ( I put it in fridge and it has lasted longer than than). Honestly, for about 500 bucks for 100 grams, I really
hoped this could be my wonder product!


My Experience: It's a green grainy product that looks like ground green pea. :P
As per the direction I took a small amount and made a paste with water. Now, first, even though only a pea size is recommended, I don't know what was the size of the pea they had in reference, I needed quite a bit more than that to get a real paste which could go over my entire face. It has ground almonds. In case, you are allergic to it, avoid this cleanser.
As for cleansing part, it doesn't cleanse anything! It won;t really take away the extra oil, dirt or any makeup. BUT, since it has ground almonds, it works as a good mild scrub. If you have acne, do not be overzealous, as it may ( as it did in my case) break you out once more.
I use is almost as a treatment scrub-mask and it adds a slight moisture which feels good on the skin... almost like my skin;s own natural oils and since the scrub is in itself mild, as with other scrubs, incorporated in your routine, it cleans the dead cells and brightens up he overall complextion.

So, the Good:
  1. Natural and herbal.
  2. Mild scrub.
  3. Moisturizes and softens the skin a bit.
Bad:
  1. Price. It's rocket high!
  2. Fails to do the basic job--- cleansing!
  3. Cannot be stored for very long.
  4. Might break you out.
  5. No significant effect I noticed on my skin.


I had given this product plenty of chances and I have had it since the last 4 months, but I cannot  really say that you SHOULD get it or anything. Yes, it does smells good and all, but overall, I feel my money has been wasted and nothing more!

  4. I would stay away from this. Spending 500 bucks for a product that would last only 3 months is a big NO for me.

    1. Same here. There are products cheaper, effective and would last a life time

    1. I had bought this online. It;s meant for my skin type -- typical problem skin with acne and uneven pigmenation. The SA in the store had also said this could be a good option

  6. Oh too bad this turned out to be a bummer.I've used Lush sugar scrub apart from giving me a bout of nasty break outs on my skin I didn't find it do much for me...I was still lemming for some more Lush stuff to make up my mind about their products, but if your experience is anything to go buy then it sounds like a waste of my dough..

    1. I remember your review of that scrub. Looks like some of us agree on breakouts etc. At least I wouldn't spend on Lush any more I think. I would rather spend my dough of other brands

  9. You know what, this was also my very first LUSH product that my mother bought on a whim, but we both ended up being disappointed - this is a crumbly mess and like you said, it barely cleanses!
