There are a few scents I just absolutely love, and those include vanilla, rose, and honey. So in my quest to do more themed posts I thought I would start off when one of my favourite ingredients from one of my favourite brands, and share some Honey Love with Lush, featuring five different Lush Honey products that all smell delicious and contain the lovely ingredient.
I had heard good things about Lush Honey Trap Lip Balm* from Laura at Beyond Blush but I was a little skeptical as to exactly how magical this lip balm would be. I should not have been. This smells so amazing (vanilla and honey) and it gives you a thick protective layer of moisturization that you can actually still feel in the morning. I applied it at night and was shocked when my lipstick didn’t apply right the next day… turned out there was still Lush Honey Trap Lip Balm coating my lips (don’t worry it easily wiped away). The pot format and amazing thick formula make this ideal for night-time application.
I’m addicted to my Lush Bath Bombs, and using half the Lush Honey Bee Bath Bomb* I got that lovely honey toffee scent of Honey I Washed The Kids Soap, although it does give the water a slight yellow tint. I know it’s the colour of honey but I prefer the purple of the Shoot For The Stars Bath Bomb from Christmas instead. Still, the scent is worth it.
If everything I owned could always smell like Lush Honey I Washed The Kids Soap*, I would be a very happy person. This soap has a great rather and it manages to leave the scent behind on my skin as well. This is so yummy and it’s easy to see why it’s such a Lush classic, and if you’re looking for a fantastic bar soap definitely grab a piece of this one.
I was really excited to give the online-exclusive Lush Honey Lumps Bath Bomb* a try and while you can read my full review here (link), it unfortunately wasn’t as great as its in store sibling, Honey Bee. Although it made my bath a bit milky, it didn’t do too much besides offer a slight (but lovely) fragrance that makes it good for sensitive skin, but not quite the full Lush experience I love.
The final Lush Honey product I tried is the Lush Fairly Traded Honey Shampoo* which has both the texture and the scent of just pure raw honey, so it’s not surprising it’s also the first ingredient and 50% of what it contains. That also means it’s preservative free. It’s not as moisturizing as I expected, although I do have dry hair, so I pair it with a heavy conditioner– I’m using Lush Okra at the moment and it’s lovely! It does give a fantastic scent to your hair, although mine is sadly washed away by conditioner.
There are lots of products from the brand containing the ingredient, but here’s just a taste of Honey Love with Lush! I am definitely already plotting a followup, so perhaps you’ll see some more Lush Honey on Writing Whimsy in the future, because I just can’t get enough of this scent!
Have you tried any of these Lush Honey products? How do you feel about honey as an ingredient in bath and beauty products?
