I was in the market for some moisturizer for the face, and so I go into Lush. I was immediately taken with sticker shock ($30 for a 100g bottle of spritzer?!), but I decided to continue my pursuit. I figured if there was something with some great, rare ingredients I'd splurge and cough up the cash. But my time in the store basically stopped when I read the ingredients of their products: methylparabens, sodium lauryl sulphates... in other words, pure cosmetic JUNK.
Tragic. I'll put my baking soda facewash against their alleged wrinkle creams any day of the week. I thankfully stumbled into Maroma (a local India-based org nearby) and picked up some all-natural stuff there for a fraction of the price. But gah. Very disappointed in Lush.
Piece of cake: pour a bit of baking soda in your clean, water-rinsed hands, and then proceed to scrub it on your face. Rinse. Works incredibly well--my face is acne-free, it tones and smooths my skin.
Based on these reviews, people with sensitive, dry skin seem to have issues, though. I whole-heartedly recommend trying it.
They're one of the biggest greenwashed companies out there. It's such a shame bc so many people unknowingly buy their stuff thinking it's actually safe.. but then you look at the ingredients and it's just a toxic mess in pretty packaging.
