Holidays are full of good eats, both salty and sweet. Often, the warmest memories are constructed from the simple scents of repast: like the popcorn strung on a homemade garland or the steaming smell of baked goods from an oven. Today I'm sharing two such simple delights from the LUSH Holiday 2012 collection: LUSH Popcorn Lip Scrub and LUSH Let The Good Times Roll facial cleanser.
LUSH Popcorn Ingredients: Castor Sugar, Organic Jojoba Oil (Simmondsia chinensis), Fine Sea Salt (Sodium chloride), Corn Meal (Zea Mays), Extra Virgin Coconut Oil (Cocos nucifera), Fizzy Candy (Isomalt, Lycasin, Carbon Dioxide), Flavour.
LUSH Let the Good Times Roll facial cleanser looks, feels, and smells like dough. I've seen all sorts of descriptions regarding the scent, but generally people agree that it smells like baked goods. To me, it smells like a cinnamon-raisin loaf! To use the cleanser, take a pinch of the 'dough' and work it in between damp hands before applying it to the face. The milky cleanser doesn't really froth or bubble like a typical soapy cleanser. Small exfoliating granules of maize feel scrubby, but are gentle enough to use twice a day. After use, I'm left with glowing skin as a result of the exfoliation and moisturizing glycerine residue. Initially, I was skeptical as to whether LUSH Let the Good Times Roll would work well with my combination skin. I'm pleased to report that the gentle cleansing and exfoliation may work better for my winter skin than a deep cleanser.
LUSH Let The Good Times Roll Ingredients: Maize flour (Zea mays), Glycerine, Talc, Water (Aqua), Corn Oil (Zea Mays), Corn Meal (Zea Mays), Popcorn, Gardenia Extract (Gardenia jasminoides), Cinnamon Powder (Cinnamomum zeylanicum), Fragrance.

These look great! Is the Let the Good Times Roll's consistency similar to Lush's Dark Angel cleanser?ReplyDelete
Hi Kelly, thanks for the comment! I have not tried Dark Angel, so I'm not sure, but it's a similar semi-solid state :)Delete
I love popcorn and the lip scrub looks great!ReplyDelete
Hi OP, Thanks! I do love a good bag of popcorn too :)Delete
They look so delicious.
Hi Kate, Thanks!!Delete
Wow let the good times roll looks like something I would like to try! I'm always hesitant buy seasonal skincare products if I'm going to really love them. :S How do you cope?ReplyDelete
Hi KB, Thanks for the comment! I know what you mean about limited edition products; I think LUSH has similar-ish regular products that I'm hoping to replace this with when I run out. I've heard stories of people freezing LUSH Buche de Noel in their freezer so they'll have some year round :PDelete
The facial cleanser seems very nice! I love bakery, tarts and stuffs so this might interests me :DReplyDelete
Hi Memoiselle, I love baked goods too, especially at this time of year :)Delete
The popcorn lip scrub is amazing <3 It smells like butter haha!ReplyDelete
Hi Mishelle, Thanks for the comment! It's butter without the butter :)Delete
Oh girl, you make me want to EAT these, not use them on my face!ReplyDelete
Hi Sunny, LOL! Though... I did eat the 'real food' from these photosDelete
oh my god, i want to eat them too - great products! :))ReplyDelete
Thank you!! :)Delete
Wow, I really want to get both of these now!ReplyDelete
Hi J, I hope you get to try them!Delete
I don't use lip scrubs but this cleanser looks so fun! Want to smoooooosh it in the container, lol.ReplyDelete
Hi Liz, haha, that's what ended up happening :DDelete
Popcorn scrub--WHAT?!!! I NEED that. I love popcorn...it's definitely a staple in my diet haha! I think I'll give it a try (though I can't guarantee that I won't try to eat it :P)ReplyDelete
Hi Becca, haha! I just had the good part of a bag just now :)Delete
Mmmmm I originally had the Bubblegum lip scrub from Lush but I snapped up this one as soon as I saw it. I have tried licking it off and it was yummy! LolReplyDelete
Hi Bethy, Bubblegum smells good too (and I like that it's pink!)Delete
