I bought Angels on Bare Skin again not too long ago and my face is soooo happy right now. I feel like when I use it in the shower, it also helps me to relax. Probably a combination of the scent and massaging.

I don't want to go through 40 pages, so I apologize if it's been discussed before, but has anyone tried their sea salt spray? I'm almost out of my John Masters Organics one, and I've been eyeing the Lush one for awhile because their packaging makes me really happy, but I don't want to buy it if it's no good.


i have the sea spray, but it's the first one i've ever bought/used so i don't really have anything to compare it to... also, for that reason, i'm not even sure i'm using it right. ha! what in particular are you hoping it does (or doesn't do)? maybe i could help if i know what you're looking for?

I have very nearly no natural wave or curl, so I don't need it to give me beachy hair or anything. I like to use sea salt spray in my hair before I blowdry (along with some other products) to give it a slightly rougher dirtied up texture, and to sorta fatten up the hair and make it look thicker. The John Masters one is great, but my Whole Foods stopped carrying it, and if I order the Lush one I can get some lip balm too.

Has anyone tried the Marilyn conditioner/bleach? People have commented on it as a conditioner, but no one has mentioned if it really does lighten your hair--I have dark blonde hair that I've been highlighting since the beginning of time (seriously, since I was about 13), and I'd like phase them out. Has anyone had good results with it?

i have dark blonde hair as well, and i have noticed zilch as far as color-results. i've used marilyn twice (once i left it on for like 45 minutes i think, the other time i left it on for a few hours) and it smells nice and conditions well, but i didn't notice any change in color at all.

jessi i just realized i never answered your sea spray question! ugh, i'm an a-hole. i think it would probably give you that "dirty" texture that you're talking about, but since i've never used any other sea sprays i don't have much to compare it to, unfortunately.

I ended up ordering it anyway, and I like it alot. Except the smell is kinda weird. But I can deal. Thanks for answering!

I had a healthy test shot of the Rose Jam on both wrists Friday ... a work colleague had bought some ... very pleasant. I could smell some of the lemon but no geranium.

Thanks to this wonderful thread I just went to check if they have Glogg back this year and they do! I just spent £37 on Glogg, Egg Snog Lip Balm, Snowshowers Jelly & Randy Butter.

Thanks for sharing! That bums me out--it's a little pricey for 'meh' results. Maybe I'll see if I can get a sample....

Let us know how it is! I'm sorely tempted to buy it.,. or drop mega hints re: christmas.

I bought the rose jam one last time around, and it has a bit too much of a strong/alcohol-y scent when it goes on, which gives me a bit of a headache, so it has sat mostly unused.

Ooof, you've sold me. I adore the shower gel so if I could smell like that all day I would be a happy little lady.

Let us know what the snow fairy is like :)

It sucks that you can't try them in store or order a sample, £25-30 is a lot of money to spend hoping that it's going to smell nice :s
I may just have to get them all and put it on a credit card!

I'll try the rose jam at the next opportunity, but it can't woo me away from my Breath of God.

Snoooowwwwww Fairy. I bought the big bottle of shower gel and each year I can't get enough. I was just in-store visiting a friend who works there and she gave me a neck massage with the Snow Fairy massage bar and now I smell edible.

I love the Rudolph face mask! It is so lovely and makes my skin soft and clear rather than dry and irritated like most masks.

The egg snog lip balm is delicious and the Randy Butter smells divine!

I got my Snow Fairy! It's amazing, just like the shower gel but the scent lasts longer. I went out for dinner the other night and the waitress said our table smelled amazing, like sweeties, and I was like "that'd be me"!

I'm so sad, I saw your pic on Instagram and didn't know it was limited edition and it's already gone! :(

I keep trawling ebay for a snow fairy dupe soap fragrance so I can make my own but so far I've come up short. I have found a honey I washed the kids dupe though so I might have to settle for that, because I used to love that as a solid perfume.

The santa lip scrub apparently tastes like cola cubes but it's not marked as vegan. I am not 100% sure why not from the ingredients, but my guess would be the coconut milk powder might also have some dairy in!?

My guess would be that the red edible hearts have cochineal.

I'm sad about the Snow Fairy selling out already too, I want everyone who wants it to have it! They still have all of the other new scents but people seem to have gone crazy for SF!

Ran into Lush the other day to grab some shampoo, conditioner, and body wash since all I brought to Ireland with me were some travel size containers that I only meant to last a few days (and save on weight in my luggage). I nabbed a big bottle of Ponche for 50% off, and small bottles of Sylvia Stout and Veganese...

Oh man... is it ever going to be tough when I go home. Lush is so much less expensive here (even with the conversion rate!). I think I'll probably end up going back for a few more goodies...
