Before I being, I’d like to point out that I’m not in any way sponsored by Lush. I love their products and buy them with my own money.
I woke up today to a cold, gray, wet morning. It was one of those days when it seems like the morning never really comes and it is just dawn all day round: it was gray and dark. The fact that it was Monday didn’t help. On days like this I like to have something nice waiting for me. Either have something delicious for breakfast or a pampering morning routine.
Luckily, I had the new Lush facial cleanser in my bathroom.
Properties and ingredients
Let the Good Times Roll smells of buttery popcorn, caramel, cinnamon, and cookie dough. Words cannot express just how good this smells! Its colour is equally delicious: light caramel brown. In consistency it resembles cookie dough with a little bit of sand added to the mix. The ‘sand’ is polenta – a natural cornmeal. Other ingredients include maize flour, glycerine, talc, corn oil, organic cinnamon powder, Gardenia extract, and wait for it… actual popcorn! You can see bits of it inside the pot in my photos below. It doesn’t have any artificial ingredients or preservatives. It’s completely natural (expires within four months). As a result, Let the Good Time Roll is one of those Lush products that you’re tempted to taste.
How it works
Let the Good Time Roll is suppose to give you an HD read skin. When I bought it a girl from Lush Inverness (yes, I bought it on holidays) said it made her pores look smaller. I didn’t really believe her and bought it for the scent. However, this stuff really works!!! It’s not a dramatic difference – it is a cleanser not dermabrasion after all – but it does work. Here are some photos of my clean skin before and after using Let the Good Times Roll.
The skin definitely feels softer and smoother after using this product. To be honest, I wouldn’t care if it didn’t. I would still use it just for the fun of it! This product is a mix between a cleanser and a daily scrub. It won’t remove makeup or deeply cleanse your skin. Hence, I use a makeup remover and a different cleanser before this.
One thing worth pointing out – it’s a very gentle product. I was quite sceptical at first as I use a lot of exfoliating products such as Alpha-H Liquid Gold, products with retinol, AHAs and BHA, as well as a prescription treatment for acne. I was worried that this product might be too harsh for my skin. For example, Lush Ocean Salt scrub is way too abrasive for me. The chunks of salt in it are just too coarse. Let the Good Times Roll doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin.
I have tried every single facial cleanser from Lush and have never actually managed to get through an entire pot before they expired. I bought this cleanser two weeks ago and I’ve already used a good 1/3 of it. Why? Because it just feels so nice to cover my face in it, close my eyes and let the scent wash over me. It is just such a fantastic experience. For me it’s one of Lush’s best products, which is saying a lot given that I absolutely adore Lush. It’s a luxurious, pampering facial cleanser.
Let the Good Time Roll is now a part of Lush’s permanent collection. Available in stores and online for £5.95 per pot (100g). As with any Lush product in black plastic pot, REMEMBER to keep your empty pots! You can bring back 5 clean Lush pots and get a Fresh Face Mask free.
