LUSH Helping Hands, Pied De Pepper, and Smitten

I got a bunch of LUSH goodies last summer and I’ve been using them for months so I thought I’d tell you about them before I have nothing left in the little black pots to show you!

LUSH Helping Hands ($18.95 for 3.5oz.) is a nice yet unbelievably expensive hand cream. There are some great ingredients for moisture deprived hands like almond oil, shea butter, and cocoa butter. I found this to be a nice creamy formula but I couldn’t buy this again because its sooo darn expensive. Wow. I kind of want younger looking hands for all that loot. But that’s just me! I think that this isn’t special enough for the price tag.

LUSH Pied De Pepper ($15.95 for 3.5 oz.) is a really good intensely moisturizing foot cream. I love this because it’s so different. There is cinnamon, olive oil, and cocoa butter that will soften any rough skin that you may have on your feet. Plus and here is what makes this unique they’ve added lemon oil to control foot perspiration! Hot diggity dog! That’s innovation. This I’d buy again but not because I have sweaty feet. I really hope you weren’t thinking that I do. That would be messed up. I just think it’s a good idea for people who do;) That’s not why I use this AT ALL. Ok now that we have that cleared up we can move on.

Rated A

LUSH Smitten ($17.95 for 3.5 oz.) is a really nice almond scented hand cream. I think the name is cute. In fact that’s what first attracted me to it. This has all kinds of soothing ingredients like get this, a chamomile infusion. Doesn’t that sound good? It sounds like something that I’d like to brew up and drink before bed! It contains a lot of great oils including Coconut, Almond, and Avocado just to name a few. This formula is nice and I think a tad on the greasy side in my opinion. It’s something that I love for tough jobs like when my hands are a complete wreck. It’s great in the cuticles, it gets them back into shape in a hurry. I really like this except I wish it was a tad less greasy feeling. I can’t open doors after using this sometimes. That’s not good.

Disclosure: I purchased all of these items myself!

    My mum has good skin. So I just briefly took one of her SKII ( to use, which I assume is a moisturizer. It’s good man I tell you! She gave me a small bottle of eye cream before but the effects weren’t that great and I stopped using. But my mum’s moisturizer is good! I can feel it reacting once I applied it
