Review: Lush Ro's Argan Body Conditioner

I received a 45g sample of Lush Ro's Argan Body Conditioner (RRP $29.95 for 225g) in my August Bellabox and made a comment about how offended I was by the very strong rose scent.

Oh, how wrong I was!

The 225g tub
It sat on my dresser for ages as I had no intention of using it and was about to give it away when I decided to give it one last look... and suddenly, I kinda liked it.

I had never heard of a body conditioner before this. But the online reviews are so overwhelmingly positive that I decided to try it out. Basically, you massage it into your skin in the shower, wait a few minutes and then rinse off. The conditioner is VERY thick- much like a body butter but oilier. Because your skin is already wet, a little goes a long way.

Once dry, my skin took on a slight waxy texture but was smooth and soft. It magically leaves a protective layer whilst moisturising dry skin. I'm hooked! The rose jam scent has an undertone of toffee and after a while my skin smelled so delicious I just wanted to eat my own arm!

I am now in LOVE with this product. I just wish it was more affordable. When I make my millions* I will buy tubs and tubs of it!

*As a scientist I am unlikely to make millions and will therefore have to find and marry an heir to a large fortune, preferably not a mining magnate's son.


  1. I loved it too - but I reckon I must have got a batch that was low on the rose oil because I got mostly nuts, vanilla and coconut smell in mine. No florally rose whiffies at all. Hmm. A lot of people say they smelled roses. I feel like I'm missing out now except that I'm sortakinda happy that I can't smell roses in mine... *brain essplosion*

    By the way, find a sugar daddy. It's way more convenient than marriage. Trust me. (hehe)

    1. I reckon it's like a perfume- the first hit is roses but it fades to the toffee/nutty base. You were lucky to get a batch with less rose oil!

      Sadly, my bf is no sugar daddy. He makes a mean pumpkin soup, though :P
