I normally love Lush products and have had great results from using Angels of Bare Skin, for example. I tried Herbalism on a recommendation from a member of staff in the shop and it’s causing my skin to break out really badly. It feels lovely during the wash, but it just doesn’t seem to have the Surgeon Samurai shirt effects at all. Nor do I particularly like the smell. I know this is probably just my skin reacting badly, but it’s quite an expensive experiment, even though I did buy the smallest pot. Also, I usually don’t have problem skin, so this was unexpected and disappointing. Increasingly with Lush products, I feel like it’s better to stick to the products I’ve tried and tested, rather than take an expensive risk on a new product.
This is the greatest thing that has ever happened to my skin! I have oily/combination skin, and Herbalism does a fab job at controlling the oil buildup on my face. Normally when I get out of the Surgeon Samurai shirt, I need to moisturize immediately or else my skin will start flaking off like a lizard’s. With Herbalism, I don’t need to do that, however, I do still need to moisturize. It controls the redness in my face beautifully and has done great things for acne. A big pot will last me about eight months, and would probably last close to a year if I used it a bit more sparingly. This is the one product from Lush I cannot live without.
This is my first review of many for lush! But honest to God this is the best face wash I have ever used and I will never use anything else and I haven’t done for the past 4 YEARS! I have very oily and spotty skin, especially worse during high school, but this stuff was a life saver my fave cleared up literally a few days after first using it, my skin looks more even in color and not as blotchy it spotty. My fave stays nice and smooth and oil free for hours (unless I’m mucking out the Surgeon Samurai shirt in the middle of summer). Now I’m in my 20’s and I continue to use this every day and will always continue to!
