Co-Mingle Body Scrub from Lush

The Co-Mingle Body Scrub first came out back in March 2022 and has been a staple, all-year-round product ever since. Since its release I have worked my way through several pots. Spoiler alert, I love it!

Co-Mingle is sold in pots of 225g and is described on Lush’s website as a ‘3 in 1 lavender dream’, This is because Co-Mingle isn’t just any old body scrub, it’s a body scrub, moisturiser and body wash.

This 3 in 1 product is the first of its kind from Lush, when I first heard of it, I really didn’t know what to expect but was, as always, keen to give it a go.

The Co-Mingle body scrub is pastel pink and has a fluffy, light, mousse-like texture, it’s really unlike any body scrub Lush have ever released before.

Co-Mingles scent is very similar to the scent of the Deep Sleep bath bomb, it’s not quite the same but close enough for me to warrant mentioning it here. Co-Mingle contains a long list of ingredients, some of those included are, vanilla pod infusion and both lavender and almond oils.

Also included in the ingredients list are ground tagua nut and bamboo, this golden duo is the secret scrubby ingredients that makes Co-Mingle such a good exfoliator. 

A very small amount of the Co-Mingle body scrub goes a long way, I however ALWAYS overindulge when using it. I scoop out about 3 fingers worth and that easily does my whole body. I recommend starting off by working it into your skin slowly, this seems to get the most out of it being a scrub, moisturiser, and body wash.

The Co-Mingle body scrubs scent and gentle scrubbiness makes it perfect for me to use of a night-time especially when I struggle with restless legs. The scent calms me down and rubbing it on any part of my body that hurts really does soothe my muscles, it also seems to put an end to my muscles twitching stopping them from keeping me awake.

I mentioned earlier that the Co-Mingle body scrub is a staple, all-year-round product and I am so very grateful for this. From its release, it quickly became one of my favourite Lush products and one I always need to have a pot of.

The only other Lush product that ALWAYS helps me sleep of a night time is the Blackberry bath bomb, I’m devastated that Lush have discontinued it and am terrified that Co-Mingle will also get the chop one day.

The Co-Mingle body scrub truly is a 3 in 1 product, after using it my skin feels smoother, appears brighter and is so incredibly hydrated. There really is no need to moisturise after using it. It also cleans just as good as any shower gel or body wash.

I’m head over heels in love with Co-Mingle, it’s the type of product that made me obsessed with Lush in the first place, it’s gold dust. Anything that helps me feel as good as Co-Mingle does has a permanent place in my bathroom.

Toil and Trouble Shower Scrub from Lush

The Toil and Trouble Shower Scrub is yet another product from Lush’s huge 2022 Halloween line. Toil and Trouble isn’t just a shower scrub either; Inside the pot, sat right on top of the shower scrub you will also find 2 mini bat-shaped shower jellies too! See the series of photos below.

The Toil and Trouble scrub with jelly bats is the first of its kind so I couldn’t wait to get my hands on a pot. Toil and Troubles consistency is very similar to something in between the Magic Crystals and Mamma Mia shower scrub.

Its ingredients include lavender, peppermint, orris, patchouli, sage and plenty of fine sea salt. The sea salt is the magic ingredient that makes this scrub scrubby, it is the perfect go-to product to use when you’re in need of a full-body exfoliation.

At the time of writing this review, Toil and Trouble doesn’t share a scent with any other Lush products as it’s a brand new scent. It’s rich with lavender with a sage and peppermint twist, the patchouli in it adds an autumnal aspect to the scent, in some ways it reminds me of the Lord of Misrule bath bomb and in others like the Magic bath bomb.

To use, all you must do is scoop out a small amount of scrub from the pot followed by then working it into your skin just like you would a shower gel.

A small amount of the scrub goes a very long way but please feel free to overindulge! With any exfoliator, I recommend that you pay a particular amount of special attention to any dry patches of skin that you may have, such as your knees and elbows.

What’s different about the Toil and Trouble shower scrub in comparison to the other shower scrubs by Lush is the added extras, the mini bat jellies. Lush’s website states that the jelly bats are better to use over the scrub if you are looking for a more ‘gentle cleanse’.

The shower jellies lather up well and each have lasted me about 3 showers. I decided to use them after giving myself a full-body scrub, the skin on my arms, legs and chest have never felt smoother or cleaner.

Toil and Trouble is an excellent exfoliator, not only does it buff away all of your dead, dry skin it also leaves the skin that’s left behind super hydrated too. This is a huge bonus as exfoliating can be a little harsh on your skin.

For me personally, the scrubbier a shower scrub is, the better but I know super-scrubby isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. Toil and Trouble is the perfect balance of scrubby and soothing in my opinion.

I will admit, I’m a little disappointed that Lush still haven’t made a shower scrub that shares its scent with the Calacas shower gel. Calacas is not just one of my most favourite Halloween scents it is one of my most favourite Lush scents of all time.

I am mentioning the Calacas scent because there is a similarly named, Calacas scented bubble bar from Lush called Bubble Bubble Toil and Trouble. Sadly, the name is the only similarity between the 2 products. Both products have completely different scents.

While I am still hoping that Lush release a Calacas scented shower scrub I did really enjoy Toil and Trouble.

The extra mini shower jellies really added to the scrub and I can see Toil and Trouble being quite popular to Lush customers that don’t have bath tubs. Not everyone would have tried shower jellies before so adding them to this scrub is a good way to introduce them to shower-jelly-reluctant customers!

Orange Shower Scrub from Lush

The Orange Shower Scrub started off as a 2020, Christmas-line exclusive. It however became popular very quickly, so-much-so that Lush decided to make it an all-year-round product within just a few weeks of its release.

If you enjoy using the Brightside bubble bar then you’ll enjoy using the Orange shower scrub too. Brightside shares the same uplifting and zing-elicious fragrance as the Orange shower scrub, When I’m groggy and tired I can’t help but reach for it in the shower on a cold Winters morning.

To use the Orange shower scrub all you have to do is scoop out a small amount, you then work the scrub into your skin in circular motions making sure to pay extra attention to any dry patches you may have such as your knees and elbows.

Orange shower scrub can be used on both wet and dry skin; For a gentle scrubbing experience I’d recommend using it on wet skin and for a more intense scrub, I’d use it on dry skin followed by you getting in and rinsing it off in the shower.

A very small amount of the Orange shower scrub goes a very long way making it excellent value for money. As much as I love a heavy duty scrub I do prefer using the Orange shower scrub on wet skin, I find that when used alongside water it gives my skin just the right amount of hydration as it does scrubbiness.

Containing Sicilian mandarin, bergamot and tangerine essential oils, the Orange shower scrub is jam packed with vitamin C, it not only gives me an energy boost but also leaves my skin perfectly buffed as well as appearing much brighter.

Consistency wise I’d compare the Orange shower scrub to a mixture of the Rub Rub Rub and Magic Crystals shower scrubs. It’s not quite as silky to touch as Rub Rub Rub but has the chunkier salt crystals in like the Magic Crystals shower scrub does.

While the Orange shower scrub isn’t my favourite of the Lush shower scrubs that are currently available, it has been nice to experience a scrub in a different scent. I can see why it has sold so well and can see it doing well in the foreseeable future too. I for one would be a lot happier to receive a pot of this in my Christmas stocking rather than a satsuma! 😉

Scrub Scrub Scrub Shower Scrub from Lush

Scrub Scrub Scrub Shower Scrub.pngScrub Scrub Scrub is Lush’s most recent potted-shower-scrub release. It was only a few weeks ago that I was talking about the growing popularity of black Lush products in my The World’s Smallest Disco review. The Scrub Scrub Scrub Shower Scrub is yet another, brand new black product.

I have found that when it comes down to the black products, the people within the Lush community either get really excited about trying them or they freak out asking why anyone would use such a product in the bath or shower (a place you get in to get clean.)

At first I too felt a little alarmed at the idea of bathing in Bewitched‘s or Secret Arts’ black waters but I tried them and I had nothing but a positive experience with both. – Clean up included! It was therefore a no brainer to give Scrub Scrub Scrub a go and I am so pleased that I did.

This scrubs consistency is very similar to the likes of the Magic Crystals shower scrub. Its ingredients include charcoal, blackberry, lime, blackcurrant and plenty of fine sea salt making it the perfect go-to product for an all over exfoliation.

It doesn’t share a scent with another Lush product but it does remind me of the, The Comforter bubble bar a little. It’s got the same blackcurrant twang but its scent is more coarse, it gives off very autumnal vibes.

It actually reminds me of Autumn because it smells just like the fruit pies my nan used to make after having us all out picking hundreds upon hundreds of berries.scrubscrubscrubWM

I am always honest in my reviews and I admit that a small part of me still feels a small amount of panic whenever I first take off Scrub Scrub Scrubs lid. I think it’s a psychological thing. It’s just such a bizarre coloured product to put all over your body when the main goal for your shower/bath is to clean yourself.

I have however not had any bad experiences with Scrub Scrub Scrub. NONE. People expect to come out of the shower looking like a chimney sweep but that’s not the case at all.

Yes, it can get a little messy during use but it rinses off just fine and without having to use another product such as a shower gel. Shower walls included! As I said earlier, it’s a psychological thing, once you get past its colour you start to realise how good of a product it actually is. It hydrates your skin, absorbs all of your pores impurities while also buffing away all of your dead, dry skin.

To use all you have to do is scoop out a small amount from the pot and work it into your skin just like you would a shower gel. A little amount does go a long way but please feel free to over indulge. With any exfoliator I recommend that you pay particular attention to any dry patches you may have such as knees and elbows.

Scrub Scrub Scrub leaves your skin softer in appearance as well as to touch. Its fruity fragrance remains on your skin long after using it too.

Apart from its repetitive name (I’ve read and written the word ‘scrub’ so many times now that my brain is starting to question if it’s even a real word!) I actually really like this product. I am so glad that I didn’t let its colour deter me. Scrub Scrub Scrub is a fantastic addition to the potted shower scrubs. Lush – thank you for yet another beautiful product!

Magic Crystals Shower Scrub from Lush

phontoAfter what feels like an eternity Lush have finally released another potted shower scrub. I have been wanting an alternative to Rub Rub Rub for longer than I can even remember, not because I dislike Rub Rub Rub, I in fact adore it… I just feel as if it would be nice to have more of a choice when it comes down to the potted shower scrubs, enter Lush’s brand new Magic Crystals Shower Scrub!

Magic Crystals is a brilliant shade of purple, upon seeing its colour I immediately had a soft spot for it as its the exact same colour I had my bridesmaids in when I got married in 2017.

When pictures of the Magic Crystals shower scrub first emerged on social media due to its magical name, many people guesstimated that it shared its scent with the Magic bath bomb, they were however very, very wrong.

Its ingredients include fresh mint, sage and spearmint oil as well as epsom and fine sea salt. Magic Crystals doesn’t share a scent with another Lush product it does however remind me of several of them.

When you first take the lid off of the Magic Crystals I am instantly reminded of one of my favourite Lush face masks the Mask of Magnaminty.

Once you start to use Magic Crystals in the shower I am then reminded of Christingle body conditioner, not only for its scent in the steamy hot shower but also for how it gently stimulates your skin making it tingle a little.

To use all you have to do is scoop out a small amount from the pot and work it into your skin just as you would a shower gel. A little amount does go a long way but please feel free to over indulge. I won’t tell anyone if you won’t!

With any exfoliator I recommend that you pay particular attention to any dry patches you may have such as knees and elbows. The spearmint oils tingly properties breathe life into dull skin. A quick scrub down with Magic Crystals clears your pores of excess oil, dirt and yucky dead skin leaving your skin softer in appearance as well as to touch.

Consistency wise Magic Crystals isn’t as silky soft as Rub Rub Rub. The salt in it appears to be slightly more chunkier, it does however do an almost identical job, I’d go as far to say that my skin actually feels more hydrated after using Magic Crystals when compared to my skin after using Rub Rub Rub.

Overall I am very happy with the new Magic Crystals shower scrub, it’s nice that there is more of a choice of this particular type of product now. The variety certainly makes shower time a lot more exciting to say the least.

Once out of the shower its minty scent is still detectable on your skin hours after using it. Its scent on my skin actually reminds me of the Intergalactic bath bomb some what. Intergalactic is one of my favourites so this is a huge positive for me, I will imagine this is the case for many other Lush customers too as Intergalactic is one of (or possibly is, I need to check) their best selling product.
