Review: Lush Let The Good Times Roll Cleanser

I finally picked up Lush’s Let The Good Times Roll cleanser after hearing MissBudgetBeauty (who else?!) talking about how much she loved it for ages. I’ve tried their Herbalism cleanser (review here) which, once I’d figured out how to use it, I really liked. It’s been a while since I’ve tried anything like that and truth be told I haven’t wanted to stray from my beloved Hot Cloth Cleanser from Sanctuary, but just recently my skin has been playing up a little bit and isn’t quite as clear and smooth as I’d like. This cleanser contains cinnamon to give your skin a bit of pep, and maize flour, polenta and corn oil to smooth everything over and hydrate.

Although this is a self preserving product, it’s also a “fresh” cleanser meaning it has a shorter shelf life than your average. I’ve actually been keeping it in the fridge between uses as we’ve been having some rather hot weather lately and I want to try and prolong its life as I’m worried the heat will encourage bacteria growth.

To use this you just take a small chunk of it onto your fingers, mix in a small amount of water then massage onto your skin. I wouldn’t recommend using this over your eye area as its really quite scrubby, which I wasn’t expecting.  The slightly cinnamon, caramel scent lingers for a while after washing so just bear that in mind if you’re not keen on the smell. When I rinsed it off my skin felt soft and smooth and, much like the Herbalism cleanser, it feels like it’s left a residue behind. Initially, whilst I was still in the shower, this left me feeling like my face wasn’t properly clean however once I stepped out of the shower and dried off my skin felt clean, soft, smooth and comfortable albeit a little tender. If you have particularly sensitive skin you might want to give this one a miss as it is packed with exfoliants, for everyone else I would just say to be careful and to not scrub too hard.

This is definitely more of an exfoliator than a cleanser so I won’t be using it to replace my Sanctuary cleanser, but all in all I really like it and will be adding it into my regular rotation. I’m not sure it will be a daily use product but perhaps every other day.


Available from Lush for £6.75
