Lush Hand Care #girlsnewbestfriend!

*** Please note I purchased these products myself.

Hello my dear lovelies,

Lush products have been popping up all over South African blogs lately, a store opened at V&A Waterfront last year and its been a must have on my lust-list ever since!

If you have the pleasure of being able to go to the actual store make sure you do, its fabulous! If not, they now do online orders and correct me if I am wrong but I am pretty sure they are opening a Durban store soon.

Anywhoo, walking into Lush is like walking into a Charlie & the Chocolate Factory but for Soaps and Creams! Even just walking past the store is an experience, it just smells so amazing!


I took this while in-store their displays are so inciting! I’m a total sucker for product placement!

Lush Hand Treats

Lush Hand Treats

Lush has a great selection of treats for hands and feet, you can buy them here.

So lets start with Tiny Hands Solid Hand Cream…

Tiny Hands

Tiny Hands

Its a solid Hand cream, you rub it in your hands and the heat from the friction melts a layer of the bar onto you hands. It really helps with dry hands.

Just make sure you keep it in a cool place! The day I bought mine it was about 32 degrees and it started to melt so I tossed it in the fridge.

It has vanilla, chamomile, marigold and cocoa butter in it and has the most amazing smell ever! Its also a Vegan product

This pretty little hand goes for R80.00 per bar.

Next I have Handy Gurugu Hand Cream…

Handy Gurugu Hand Cream

Handy Gurugu Hand Cream

I tried this product in-store as well as the Helping Hands but loved this one more! Its a thick “Butter-Rich” hand cream.

Its not fruity which is why I chose it, it has a very fresh scent. Its made up of Shea-Butter which is possibly one of my all time favorite ingredients in any beauty product ever! Its also got a touch of Rose Water which was news to me until this post as I generally do not enjoy the smell but its so subtle you don’t even realize its there.

Its also a Vegan Product and contains alcohol.

It retails for R120.00 per 100g tub.

Last but definitely not least, I give you Lemony Flutter Cuticle Butter…

Lemony Flutter Cuticle Butter

Lemony Flutter Cuticle Butter

This one was a gift from my boss at our Year End Function last year.

Its fabulous! Smells so delicious its ridiculous!

Its Lemony Fresh and the thickest cream Lush has available.

The best part about this cream is that you can use it on practically anything. I personally use it as a lip balm, cuticle cream and an elbow moisturizer! It combats dryness and softens up cuticles. Its a Vegetarian Product and contains some alcohol.

This baby retails for R105.00.

I really suggest all of these products and give them 5 out of 5!

All The Best
