I was very interested to see that LUSH started to provide some new offerings. Now, it’s been quite a while since I’ve ordered from LUSH as their prices keep increasing and I can’t justify it, especially when I have all manner of lotions and potions to use up, but I thought that I’d treat myself. They released three handcare kit boxes that are small enough to fit through your letterbox, though I also ordered a Comforter bubble bar and body spray so I got mine delivered as usual rather than through the letterbox.
I opted for the Clean and Sweet Handcare Kit which contains four items and is the cheapest of the three boxes at £22. They also have Clean and Calm at £27 as well as Clean and Fresh As at £25.
The Clean and Sweet Handcare kit contains:-
- Honey I Washed the Kids Soap (100g) (Currently £5)
- Milky Bar Soap (120g) (Currently £5)
- Helping Hands Hand Cream (45g) (Currently £9 per 100g)
- Tiny Hands Solid Hand Cream (60g) (Currently unavailable outside of set)
The Honey I Washed the Kids Soap was one of my first forays into LUSH. It smells AMAZING and I actually have a cut block of it in my soap stash. Now, it’s shaped in to these individual bars which looks a little more presentable but I found the cut slices more presentable. Also, it was a lot cheaper… One reason I have so much of a soap stash is it was more like £3.40 a bar when I purchased them. I’m glad I wrapped them up in polypropylene and preserved them… I recently got a bar out from several Christmases ago and it smells as fresh as the day I got it.. but I digress!
This is a really nice little set. I won’t write a long review of the individual products. They’re as you’d expect from LUSH. The fragrances are mild and inoffensive, sweet and clean smelling – It feels like a nice treat and indulgent to use the products from the set. The serum can leave your hands feeling a bit greasy and it doesn’t sink in like the hand cream so that’s worth noting. Tiny Hands and Milky Bar are Vegan but the other two products contain Honey and are therefore not vegan.
A lot of people are struggling with hand care in this pandemic, especially with further hand washing or drying out of hands from alcohol gel so this might be a nice gift for a loved one or yourself if your hands are going through the ringer. If you’re getting it for yourself and aren’t bothered about the hand serum, I’d just get the products individually and save a couple of quid. Because the box is small and thin, it fits through the letterbox which means you don’t have to worry about waiting in for the postie. The card box can be recycled and the packing peanuts dissolve in water. LUSH will also recycle the black pot – take back 5 when this pandemic is over and you can get a free fresh face mask!
Wash your hands with one of the soaps, use the moisturising cream afterwards and massage the solid serum in to your hands when they need some extra TLC.
It’s been a long time since I’ve done a beauty post and I figured it was long overdue. I don’t often buy beauty products anymore but I have missed posting about them and a little TLC is good for us all!
I hope you are all safe and well!
