Review: Lush Serum Bar

As an early christmas gift a friend bought me a Lush Full of Grace Serum bar. I've been using it for a little under three months now so I think it's about time I gave my opinion. First though I want to explain what a serum is. There are a lot of them out there and they often have different purposes such as skin firming, vitamin C, I saw one that was a caffeinated eye serum (sounds healthy right?).

The molecules in serums are smaller then those in moisturizers and lotions they they are able to send nutrients to the lower levels of skin making skin softer and more healthy.

They sell serum in bar form over at Lush, you have to warm in up to get it to melt. I use it when I get out of the shower because I take quite hot showers and my skin is heated at that time so it's easier to melt the bar a bit. If I try it at any other time it takes awhile longer to melt and get's slightly frustrating.

And then after all that the oil sits on my skin for awhile. I thought at the time I was using too much, so I cut back and started putting it only on my forehead, under my eyes, and on the parentheses around my nose and mouth. But no it still does not absorb quickly.

And then after three months of using it daily I've seen no difference in my skins quality. Some of you might think three months is no big deal and maybe I should wait longer. But I'm used to noticing Lushs benefits almost immediately, and the fact that I don't from this bar makes me think it's not doing anything. I feel very jyped since I've only read glowing reviews about this product, it's possible that it's not doing anything for my skin because I don't need it.

Who knows, I won't be buying another ones that's for sure.


  1. Huh - I've got one and it's helped calm and soothe my sensitive skin a lot. Every one's different, I guess.

  2. I really wanted it to work! I gave it a pretty good chance. It just doesn't like me I guess.
