All Lush product reviews masterpost

Reviews of all Lush products I’ve used, in alphabetical order. This post will be continually updated with new products and any additions to old reviews. Samples included.

Body: dry to very dry throughout the year, but extremely dry during winter. Without the right care, my hands are extremely dry and sensitive all year ’round, though, and my heels tend to crack.
