I've been using the Big conditioner for two weeks now and I really like it! My hair tends to get really greasy with most conditioners but this one is light enough. It smells great as well!

I'm glad they started sending face scrubs in those black pots instead of the plastic ones, now I have a chance in hell at getting a free face mask!

I put my Christmas sale soaps in my closet and now the bedroom smells like Lush. It's awesome.

So frustrated. I ordered one of the buy one, get one after-Christmas sets. I got my package yesterday and it only has one set. I really hope they'll rectify this.

hard to tell what the consistency of this one is... hopefully more like none of your beeswax and less like double choc. ;)


I bought some of this today. It's on the soft side and the taste and smell reminds me of penny sweets. It's got a nice subtle shimmery hint of colour too, although it's a bit on the pale side for me.

I also got given a load of samples! I said I was looking for something to make my hair less frizzy and have more weight and shine and the salesperson suggested R&B so I got given a little pot of that, then I said I was looking for something more conditioner-y and she suggested Jasmin and Henna Fluff-Eaze but said it needed quite a bit to be put on, so then she filled up four of the little tubs with that, hesitated a bit and filled a fifth one!

i got some of this today, and i agree, it smells really nice and it is definitely MUCH softer than double choc. i also agree that it's rather pale... i might try layering it over something, like "regular" lip gloss.

in other, sadder news, i also got some perfume today that i HAAAATE. i ordered it online (because i've never seen it in the store), and i figured i'd *love* it because it's just called "ginger" so of course it's going to smell like ginger, right? wrong. it doesn't smell remotely like ginger, and it's not my bag at all. i'm totally bummed.

I don't really like Lush lipsticks/tinted chapstick things. The red one is okay but for the most part, I think the colors are awful.

Ugh! Jay forking RECYCLED the tubs I was hoarding in the bathroom. I was so mad. That was like six months worth of tubs, and I wanted my goddamn face mask!

I hadn't been saving those things because I'm kind of afraid of the idea of going into a store.

I made another order that includes the Big conditioner. Also, my husband stole my Greeench and I forgot to order one.

I'm currently using it, even though I never dared try it before, since I'm allergic to calendula (marigold). But they gave me one of these tiny tester pots, and I didn't have any bad reactions. It's the best thing for my hands in winter, even though it smells a lot like those anti-mosquito candles. ;)

Damn! I just googled it and it has beeswax! Of course my tester didn't say anything, and for once I didn't check!

Handy Guru is the vegan hand cream. Any experiences with that one? I need a thick and moisturizing hand cream.

I've put it on in the store before and liked it! It was greasy at first but soaked in and made my hands really soft. There's also a solid hand butter thing that's vegan, but I haven't tried it.

Tiny Hands. I've used it and didn't really like it. Once it gets small it tends to break into a million tiny little pieces that are hard to use and the oil doesn't absorb into my hands very well so it would just kind of sit on top of my skin.

Fork! I went to the website and saw a tiny V symbol but on closer inspection it says vegetarian not vegan :/ So glad I asked before I went out and bought a pot!

okay, whew, sorry for being the vegan police you guys! i have just been obsessed with lemony flutter (in the pregan days i always used burt's bees cuticle butter), but i had memorized that it has lanolin & beeswax. i allowed myself to get a little excited there, heh.

anyscoot, i've been using ultrabalm instead. it works pretty well for that purpose.

i also use handy gurugu; i switched from aveda hand relief (my loooooong standby) after the china debacle. it's quite different as far as smell and consistency, but it absolutely works just as well. heavy so you don't need much, soaks in well so you don't have greasy hands after a couple minutes, and i only have to use it twice a day (my habit is in the morning after getting ready, and right before bed).

i got a tiny hands in one of my holiday gift sets, but i haven't tried it yet... one of my friends is a frequent hand-washer, though, and she really likes it.

I ordered Blousey (Shampoo) and Happy Happy, Joy Joy (conditioner) and Big (conditioner) and today washed my hair with Blousey and Happy Happy, Joy Joy.

Blousey is kind of nice, not a lot of lather there but with dryness of winter, nice to have a moisturizing shampoo. On the other hand, Happy Happy, Joy Joy advertises itself as 'lightly scented'. Lightly scented meant me using a small amount in an enclosed shower gave me a headache. Once I rinsed it off, the smell seems ok but I can't imagine ever buying it again. Obviously Lush and I disagree about the meaning of lightly scented.
