Clinique 3-step compared to LUSH

on Mar 25, 2007 @ 10:30 am

Hi everyone, I am new to this cute and cool site... Anyway, I am living in Indonesia now, and it's so hard to find natural skincare here. There are only a couple of stores that sells truly (or almost) natural products. LUSH being one of them. I previously used the clinique 3-step to get by, and since I found LUSH I am wanting to try it. I am thinking about buying Ultrabland cleanser, Eau Roma toner, and Celestial moisturizer. Have any of you compared the two money-wise, and usage length-wise? Please let me know, because if LUSH end up being more expensive than Clinique... then I don't know if I'll be able to shell out that much... Thanks alot!

Lath0013 is the queen of Lush products. Maybe she would know?

Although I do enjoy the occasional Clinique product, I personally lean more towards Lush. They seem more environmentally friendly than most stores and more fun too. I haven't tried any of the cleansers that you asked about, but I have wanted to try the celestial moisturizer too!

I find Lush great because of the quality of their products. They really do care about their customers there and are very helpful in finding what products are right for you. If you look on their website under the "search" mode, you can pick and choose ingredients (like honey or bergamot) and see which Lush products have that specific ingredient that you are looking for. I love searching that site for the most popular items, what's new, and everything in between.

With all the products that I have tried at Lush (excluding bath bombs), I find that you can get a lot of use out of them and you really don't need that much of anything for it to work. I've had two bad experiences with Lush that I can think of - the Happy soap and the Creamy Candy Bubble Bar Slice. Other than that, I have been really happy with Lush. I trust the Lush name and know that I will be getting a good product 97% of the time. Right now, I'm trying the facial masks that you out in the refrigerator in between uses and I love them!

I hope that was useful!

If you go into my profile and look at my Lush hotlist you can get a better idea of things.

So what lush facial care have you used lath0013? I have dry and sensitive skin, and I read that lush's ultrabland, celestial, and eau roma are very good. How long do they last, I wonder, do you know? I was using Clinique DDML -the $ 21 one, and it lasted about 3 months. Will I end up paying more for lush?
I personally prefer, and LOVE natural products. I have used Burt's Bees before too, and loved it. But they are sooo expensive here. like twice the cost or triple.

So far, I have only tried their fresh face masks that you can only get in store. The reason you can't get them online is because they are so fresh, that by the time they get to you they will be no good. I think my top two favorites would have to be Cupcake and Catastrophe Costmetic. Brazened Honey is pretty good too. They are about $8 to $10 dollars a pod, and they last about two weeks.

I've also been using the Imperials face cream before I go to bed and I find that it really does make my skin look and feel nicer.

I'm sorry that I haven't tried any of the ones that you suggested (it's on my large list of things to try lol). For other people's opinions though, you can always go on to the Lush web page, click on each individual product and then see what other people rated them. Sorry I can't be of much more help!
