Review: LUSH full of grace moisturizing serum bar

Has anyone heard of LUSH before? I first discovered LUSH as a junior in highschool, walking down 23rd Avenue in Portland (side: if you're ever in the Portland area, check out 23rd avenue!). I was definitely fascinated by the fact that all the products in LUSH are handmade. Moreover, the products don't use any preservative, making them better for you skin.

Last month, I purchased the "full of grace" serum bar for $14.95. I felt a bit guilty for purchasing this because I was on the lookout for birthday gifts for my friends (XD), but the saleswoman told me it'd last for up to 3 months (for both my twin and me)! I couldn't resist and purchased it.

"Full of grace" is made of all natural ingredients, including the featured ingredient: fresh portobello mushrooms! Isn't that interesting? I've only eaten portobello mushrooms. I never would have suspected that they were good for my skin, too! According to LUSH's website, portobello mushrooms are full of antioxidant B and C vitamins and have skin-conditioning properties. How exciting~~

How to use: melt the bar in your hands by rubbing it; then massage the serum into your face.


The first thing I noticed was the smell; it's amazing. I really appreciate the fact that it's not too overpowering. In fact, this scent is very soothing and relaxing. In terms of effectiveness, the "full of grace" bar works quite well; it's very moisturizing and helps brighten my complexion.

However, the bar is difficult to keep sanitary. You'll have to make sure too keep your hands clean before touching the bar and touching your face. Additionally, the serum is a bit thick and difficult to spread; in order to massage the serum into your face, you'll be tugging a little on your skin.
