Do you like lush? Do you use lush regularly, if so what do use?
Do you have any lush horror stories?
Do you have any recommendations ?

Anonymous 177

Yay!
Yes, I use lush a lot. I'm in love with Lord of Misrule shower gel, and use it pretty much all the time. I'm terrible 'cause I keep buying products and then not using them. I have about three shower jellies - Ghost, Pot of Gold and then dark purple berry that I forgot the name of, but smells too sweet/fruity for me.
I also have tons of bathbombs but rarely take baths (definitely a shower girl), so they just sit in my room…
I also bought dream cream in hopes of moisturising more often, I'm just really bad at it and don't fancy feeling greasy spoon yeah.
I do use fresh farmacy few times a week when my skin breaks out a bit, because I have very sensitive and a bit dry skin but prone to acne (great combination).
I can't stand any of the hair products - I tried a conditioner once which was such a pain to wash out and gave me allergic reaction (made my ears burn!). I kinda liked New shampoo bar, but purely for the scent - it is really drying! The only hair product I kinda liked was Henna rouge - but it was too much effort (it did look nice, but didn't last long at took too long o put on/wash out). Might try it again at some point. I also use fairly regularly their dry shampoo, which works pretty well.
One time I tried their deodorant when I wanted to switch more "natural" - but my underarm skin started peeling off.
Oh and lately I tried their blueberry face mask which was lovely, and I got jelly mask (pink one, can't think of the name) which I still need to try.
I'll post when I think of more. Yes, I might have a problem haha.

Oh yeah I remembered, I also have lip scrub Santa Baby which is delicious!

Anonymous 179

So far I've only bought the ocean salt peeling. I love it: The scent is awesome imo (reminds me of mojitos), it leaves my skin feeling super smooth (plus applying it and massaging it around is super relaxing), and it lasts really long (bought it in January and still have about 2/3 left, though obviously that depends on how often you use it, I do once every one to two weeks).

Though I'm kinda worried about lush products since so many people break out from them because of the added scents?

I've been thinking about replacing my regular moisturizer with lush's "celestial", any of you have tried that one? If so, what did you think of it?

>>177
Woah, anon that's incredible! Awesome to see your opinions of these, you've definitely made me wanna check out their lip scrubs!

Anonymous 180

I wish I could try one of their bath bombs, but I don't take baths because I live with my family and that would be a waste of water (and thus money). Can't wait to try some of them once I have my own apartment.

>>177
I have one of these tiny pots of dream cream that cashier give so you can test some of the products and I think it smells terrible. I've been told it's good for people whose skin tend to break out often, don't know if that's true. I use sympathy for the skin instead, I love the smell and it works well on me.

>>179
I think I have the same ocean salt peeling, is the one your talking about called "rub rub rub"? I like it a lot too, but my pot is like 665g of product, so the biggest one available, I bought it in late June or early July I think and I'm almost out of it. I use it more or less twice a week though so maybe that's why it lasts long for you.

Anonymous 181

I love lush! But I don't use it regularly LOL mainly cause I don't know most of the products too well and don't have the money to spend. I mainly use the bathbombs tho and lip scrubs

>Do you have any lush horror stories?

Once I was in the lush store and they had sample tooth tab things (which is basically like some teeth cleaning tab that is an alternative to tooth paste kinda) and I really wanted to try one. So I took one without any water, put it in my mouth, and started chewing and swallowing. That shit was disgusting and I felt really awkward having to spit it out in front of all the employees. Apparently your supposed to have it with water first and let it fizz a bit? And ur not supposed to swallow lol.
Other than that I don't really have any horror stories and I don't even know if that's a horror story. The employees are a little pushy tho and make me kinda uncomfortable, which is why I'm afraid to pick up any soaps without someone coming up to me asking me if I would like to test it out.

Also I've heard that the bathbombs can cause yeast infections and what not? I've never experienced that (mainly cause I don't use em regularly) but if anyone has any more info on that I'd like to know

Anonymous 182

My favourite shampoo I ever bought was Lush's BIG, it is amazing. It smells better than anything and it makes my hair so soft and fluffy. It is a bit weird at first since it's full of huge salt crystals which feel a bit weird scrubbing onto your head but it's soooo good.

Anonymous 183

I've never tried any Lush products. I've entered their stores a few times, but every time the scent is too overwhelming and I get a headache.

I wouldn't mind trying some of their bath bombs and soap bars. I like the colors.

I just had a 2-hour shop floor trial shift as a sale's assistant with LUSH and I really have to say, the entire experience has left me extremely disillusioned in the company.

I applied to work for the company because I'm pretty knowledgeable on a range of their products, their composition, usage and application. I've previously suffered from a range of skin problems, from dermatitis to adult acne, and I legit believe I've had a lot of help with LUSH's products, if not aiding the problem externally, then helping to improve my mood with a little taste of cruelty-free, environmentally-friendly luxury. Actually being on the sales-end of things though, the company is completely fucking predatory. Nobody on the management side actually gives a fucking about helping people or the company ethos, it's all sell, sell, sell.

Your performance is actually more based upon how many demos you manage to hawk onto people, not so much the sales. After greeting every person that enters, you're supposed to watch them, study their body language, and then approach them within the first 30 seconds of having greeted them. If you don't approach them within 30 seconds, you get penalised. You are instructed to keep returning to the customer over and over, even if they've verbally informed you, however many times, that they wish to be left alone. During my 2 hours on the shop floor I spent most of my time shadowing irritated shoppers that clearly wanted to be left alone, and it feels fucking awful. Despite that I did manage to help a lost looking dad and his son find some nice soap for his wife, an older lady walk away with Celestial for her dry hands, demo'ed Intergalactic for some energetic schoolgirls, and sold a load of misc. bath bombs.

At the end of the day when I received my feedback, I was chastised for not having been able to push anybody into having a hand/arm massage demo.

This is the thing though, the entire time I was there, 2 hours on a busy Saturday, despite trying my absolute hardest I just could not get anybody interested in demo'ing a masque or some cream. People just didn't want to do it, and I felt like, what do they expect me to do? Force them into a demo? How can you get people to demo a product when they're very clearly not interested? I know it's not just my approach or my sales technique either because none of the other staff managed to get a demo in either. The thing that REALLY made me feel like I'd just rented my soul to the devil for 120 minutes though was when I was chastised for having been honest with a customer.
There was a girl standing on the shop floor studying a pot of Ocean Salt with a hopeful look on her face. She had a really visible amount of acne on her face, it really was quite bad, and so I approached her and inquired about whether she'd tried the product previously and she said no. She told me that was looking for something for her acne and so I informed her that whilst Ocean Salt is one of LUSH's best sellers, due to the fact that it's comprised of sea salt (abrasive), lemon (acidic) and vodka (drying), that I wouldn't personally recommend Ocean Salt for people suffering from dermatitis, acne, or have any open wounds or lesions on their face, as it would end up doing a lot more harm than good. Instead I recommended to her Angels on Bare Skin (which is a really gentle cleanser with ground almonds, rose oil and kaolin clay), and she was super thankful for my honesty and walked away quite happily with her new purchase. The manager witnessed all of this and I was actually told off for being honest with this girl and not letting her poor face get devastated by citric acid and alcohol, because supposedly my information was something she'd take away and "inform her friends about".

At the end of the day I get that they're a company and that their primary goal is to sell shit, but after everything I thought I previously knew about their ethics and the practices of their company, I just feel so disappointed.
Next time you're in LUSH and you've got some pushy sales assistant up your butt, take pity on them, because they're being 100% forced to behave like that, and if you've got time let them give you a demo. Even if you don't buy anything in the end it's the demos that they're being evaluated on, and you'll get their supervisors/managers off their ass for the rest of their shift if you do.

Holy shit I knew something was up with them, this is why I haven't been in there for years because every time I went in there I felt too pressured to do the bloody arm massage each time. My right hand was soft as hell afterwards but I just felt it was so ott.

Thank you for telling us about this.

I feel more understanding now.

Anonymous 186

YES please don't let people (especially with acne) use this stuff on their face. Citric oils are going to give people a fucking sunburn and sea salt is just too intense for facial skin eee

Anonymous 187

>>184
I always wondered why they were so pushy. I feel a little bad now but I can't help pushing them away because their constant bugging makes me uncomfortable/anxious lol. I've done a few demos before but felt really pressured into doing it, it wasn't fun. Also I remember once I was washing my hands in one of their sinks after trying some soap and one of the workers came up to the sink and turned off my water because she thought I had the water running for too long. I wasn't even done washing my hands, they were still soapy. I felt kinda insulted tbh

I've heard similar stories about working at lush a lot (I'm actually kinda surprised you hadn't before, I thought it was well known?), and ever since I've avoiding browsing or shopping there. I despise that sort of pushy 'customer service', it shows a serious lack of decent company values.

LUSH Anon back with an email update:

>Dear Anon

>Thank you very much for attending your shop floor trial on Saturday.
>On this occasion we will not be processing your application to the next stage
(Thank fuck I'm actually relieved)

>Feedback on your performance


>Positive: We liked how you greeted the customers as they entered the store. You displayed open body language and exibited a good knowledge of existing products.


>Developmental: We would have liked to have seen you actively approaching customers and demonstrating more products to them.

So what I did with quite literally every single customer that came through the doors, except you wanted me to get pushy with them and render them so uncomfortable in the course of their time in the store that they felt they had no choice but to make a purchase.

>Also it is very important that we put the customer first rather than talking to other members of staff, so making sure to be constantly customer focused.

lmao what, right at the beginning of the shift I was told that it's okay to approach an existing member of and ask them about product knowledge and information about the store, which is what I did in the brief periods in which the store was empty.
>so making sure to be constantly customer focused
YOU CHASTISED ME FOR NOT TRICKING SOME POOR GIRL INTO FUCKING HER FACE UP FOR WEEKS AND CAUSING HER AN INSURMOUNTABLE AMOUNT OF STRESS FOR THE SAKE OF AN £8.95 POT OF LITERAL ACID WOW WOW WOW

Honestly if I had been offered the position I probably would have accepted it anyway because a. I need a job, and b. if anybody is going to be in that sales position I think it'd be better if it was somebody that wasn't going to intentionally fuck customers over all to boost some shitty sales figs. I am so, so disappointed in this experience though because I legitimately loved LUSH. I feel like Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz when Toto pulls back the curtain to reveal that the almighty Wizard is just an old man working a series of pulleys and levers to create an illusion of greatness.

I'm hoping that the garbage sales practices are something that's just isolated to this one store, but given the existing stories and rumours around the company that some of you have mentioned, I'm guessing the management are all trained to be like this.

Are you American? I feel like most people who complain about that stuff are American because I usually go on English image boards and I can confirm it's like that in every store. Although I thought salesmen were pushy and following customers very closely because there aren't these anti-thief devices attached to the products because that's how it is in some stores (except it's really only really that bad in Lush).

This is retail anon, get a customer service job instead. I have one and I literally do the opposite and just chill out and apologize to people and refund them my boss's money when they get too angry. Retail sales, especially at those kinds of places is cut-throat, and stores like lush and others that sell skincare/beauty products are poorly trained in actual skincare and only trained to sell and not help. That's why I won't buy in stores.

MTE Anon. I wonder if it's bby's first job (no offense) because she sounds very naive about sales techniques and retail jobs, and seems to take it pretty personally that her favorite company is primarily focused on selling.
I found it weird that she has all this knowledge about the company and their ingredients and values and ethics but is surprised about them being pushy? I've never even used a LUSH product and don't care much about cosmetics companies in general and even I know their salespeople are very hands-on.

No it's not my first job aha, but it is my first attempt at a role in forward-facing customer sales. What can I say, I was naive, and I'm even more saddened to hear that decieving customers to their physical detriment is apparently so prevelant that it's considered the standard.
Don't get me wrong, ofc I knew retail was like this, but with the bullshit that LUSH preaches about their progressive business model and ethics, I guess I was just shocked to discover that they're the same as all the rest, if not much worse.

Anyway please don't let my bad time spoil the tone of the thread, I just wantesd to chip in with a relevant experience.

If we're talking about products, I super recommend Mask of Magnaminty. The ground aduki beans act as a gentle exfoliator, and the menthol in the peppermint stimulates all your nerves leaving your face feeling all tingly and refreshed. It's a pretty fun/comfy product.

I understand that being pushy to sell products is the "goal" of many stores but I feel like Lush's pushy-ness is on a whole different level. For example, if I'm in a clothing store (ex: PacSun or Victoria's Secret, etc) the workers will usually greet me then later ask if I need help with anything. Typically I decline, then I am left on my on in the store, never to be bothered again. Lush is wayyyy more aggressive. I'm greeted, ask if I need any help with anything, and decline, but it doesn't end there. I'll be casually viewing an item on my own and then out of no where some employee will appear and ask if I wanna try it out or something. They just do not leave you alone in that store, and I understand that it's policy, but please let me be…

Also I've seen various lush worker related memes before about how pushy they are lol

Uh, what you're proposing is a total non-sequitur though. People are allowed to hold varying opinions on seperate aspects of a topic. The vast majority of LUSH's products are good, but I have always said that Ocean Salt should never have been a product in the first place because it's far too abrasive, acidic and drying on all skin types, and it really ought to be taken off the shelves immediately.

Just because a person likes their products doesn't mean they're not allowed to criticise them so I don't know why that's so funny to you. Maybe you just have a poor sense of humour?

Anyway OP, if you don't need the money, then just do volunteer work. It's a great way to help others, and it will be a lot more lax. I for one, appreciate you sharing updates on your experience with Lush.

Anonymous 216

Skirting away from the other convo, a lot of Lush's products are natural, yes, but most of them are too strong for what they're advertised. Most of their products are the "home remedy" equivalent of skincare, like your aunt telling you to use lemon juice and sugar scrub on your face, or wash your hair with baking soda. They smell nice but are not the best for you. I also personally hate their bath bombs, they're almost all baking soda and can give a nasty UTI.

Anonymous 217

>>195
Okay, but VS employees are ranked on how they "sell" to customers. That's why when you leave the store they have someone ask you who helped you. It's the same thing with others stores, you can't advance in the company unless you "sell" a certain amount of x (when logically one would think being a manager for a position would be based on how good you as an a general employee, not a salesperson). It is the standard and it must be nice you'd had such a sheltered life to not really comprehend the scope of that.

What the hell is wrong with you? You are so unattached from all reality. You have zero social skills and are now insulting a poor woman for doing her job. You're making her out to be the devil, when in reality she's selling a product. You claimed to know Lush's products so well, yet now after they didn't hire you they are selling horrible acid products that destroy lives?

Unlike you, everyone else has to work. Not everyone can trade ass for living, btw that is prostitution. By all definitions you are a whore, you are exchanging sexual favours for monetarily gain. Nothing wrong with being a sex worker, but fuck you for shaming the poor manager trying to get by in life.

I am sure you know all of this better than the FDA and APR, who have both approved all products sold by Lush. All your amazing google skills totally trump the professionalism of dozens of MBA and PhD's behind the Lush formulas. Of course, you know better than anyone else in the world.

TL;DR Spoony is a vintage tripfag originally from 4chan. She selfposted and stirred up shit to the point where she got banned from /cgl/, kept ban evading and moving to other boards like /r9k/ to post more of her nudes and random body parts while getting into slapfights with users, up until Moot personally banned her and called her out.

On lolcow.farm she was known for having made an insane amount of posts, posting all day erry day including racist shitposting and derailing every thread she went to. She evaded all of her bans until the original Admin finally threatened to expose and label all her posts across the board if she ever came back. The only way to get rid of her is to threaten her with putting a name to her posts, that's how bad she is. https://lolcow.farm/pt/res/138635.html
As you can see, she immediately came in to defend herself at length again.

Ive been in love with their bubblegum lip scrub from when I first tried it, about 4 years ago. Whenever I go into the store the first thing I do is put on the bubblegum lip scrub samples. My friends HATE the bubblegum lip scrub and say it tastes/smells like pepto bismol lol. That's fine with me (although I don't really understand how they can hate something so good), cause it means more lip scrub for me. One of my friends even gave me her unused lip scrub her mom got her cause she really doesn't like it.

Interesting insight, anon. I have a question though- do Lush force their employees to post about their products on their personal social media?? Someone I know got a job there and they started posting a LOT about Lush products, essentially trying to make sales by using their social media. Is this a contractual obligation? I think its fair enough if its one post saying 'hey i got this from where i work and its cool' but this was like…a common occurrence. I found it off that the employees were bigging up a company SO much seemed quite odd.

Do you also think they have a soft of employment bias? It seems like every single Lush employee I've met is hipstery, in their mid 20s to mid 30s and middle-class.

As for products I've used- I'm using their Skin Drink moisturiser at the minute which is great for my very dry skin. I also like their cup-o-coffee face mask and key-lime pie lip balm.

How can you be middle class while working retail?

Does anyone which bath bomb smelled like their "flying fox" scent? I remember loving that scent but not the actual products that were supposed to smell like it. It wasn't "Sex bomb" either.

American middle class =/= British middle class

What >>2037 said.

A lot of the workers seem to be university students or university level educated. So yeah from their appearance, most probably middle class.

LOVE my bubblegum lip scrub. And btw it lasts AGES. Ive had it for like 3 years already.

Also they used to sell a lemonade one, it was delicious. And a popping rocks one too (but might have been only in Japan).

Just got some Ro Argans body conditioner again. Its my favourite and leaves the skin so soft. They have a Snowfairy scented one now too btw.

Are lush skin care products any good? I have very dry skin and am planning to buy a moisturizer. Picture of the moisturizer I'm going to buy.

I really like the H'Suan Wen Hua
Hair Moisturiser but if I get it on my scalp it makes it very flakey and sometimes more aggravated spots will turn into small sores. :(
