Lush Favorite: Buffy Body Butter

Lush – or that smelly soap store as someone recently referred to it – started my love for natural and organic products. I remember visiting for the first time and just loving all of the vibrant smells and colors in the store, so different from everything else.

I am a big fan of soap, so I naturally started out trying almost every version of that and slowly moved into the body and hair care. These days it is so much easier to find natural beauty products, but back then their shampoos and conditioners were a revelation for my hair.

Lush Buffy Body Butter

As a beauty blogger I like to try new things, so I don’t use a lot of Lush at the moment with a few key exceptions. One of my all-time favorite products is the Buffy Body Butter.

Buffy will simultaneously scrub using ground rice, almonds and aduki beans, and moisturise your skin with lavender oil, cocoa butter and shea butter. This sounds good enough to eat, like most Lush products.

I spend a lot of time on my face, but take far less care of the rest of my body. Partially because i am lazy but also because my shower lacks separate heating and I don’t like to hang around in winter (or spring and autumn for that matter). The big benefit of Buffy is that is scrubs and nourishes in one go!

I love this and really miss it if i don’t have one. An important tip is to store Buffy outside of the shower, otherwise it will melt really quickly.


Lush – of die winkel met al die zeepjes zoals iemand het laatst noemde – is het merk dat verantwoordelijk is voor mijn obsessie met natuurlijke producten. Ik herinner me de eerste keer dat ik er binnenliep: ik was dol op de levendige geuren en kleuren in de winkel, zo anders dan anders.

Ik ben een grote fan van zeep, dus ik begon natuurlijk met het proberen van allerlei verschillende versies en raakte daarna geïnteresseerd in de lichaams- en haarverzorging. Tegenwoordig is het natuurlijk heel makkelijk om natuurlijke schoonheidsproducten te vinden, maar de shampoo’s en conditioners van Lush waren echt een uitkomst voor mijn haar.

Als een beauty blogger probeer ik graag nieuwe dingen, dus ik gebruik op dit moment niet veel van Lush met een paar belangrijke uitzonderingen. Een van mijn favoriete Lush producten aller tijden is de Buffy Body Butter.

Buffy scrubt je lichaam met een mengesel van gemalen amandelen, rijst en adukibonen maar verzorgt tegeijkertijd met een combinatie van cacao- en shea boter en lavendel olie. Dit klinkt goed genoeg om op te eten, zoals de meeste Lush producten.

Ik besteed veel tijd aan mijn gezicht, maar ben niet zo goed in het verzorgen van de rest van mijn huid. Deels omdat ik gewoon lui ben, maar ook omdat mijn douche geen aparte verwarming heeft en ik er daarom niet graag rondhang in de winter (of de lente/herfst). Het grote voordeel van Buffy is dat je in een keer klaar bent met scrubben en verzorgen!

Ik ben echt dol op dit product en mis het echt als ‘ie op is. Een belangrijke tip is wel om Buffy buiten de douchte te bewaren, anders smelt hij erg snel.

      The body butters are just lovely. I don’t have a bath, otherwise I am sure I would love all the bath bombs etc.

        I had some bath stuff at Christmas and lasted me till almost mid March! Lol So I’m out of them as well! But they sure are lovely! I don’t know if I can justify their price point though, as here they’re quite expensive I think! Oh well!
        Anyways they’re lovely for a pampering night! So give them a go!
        Lots of xx

          I love them, but some of their products are a little expensive. For me, the fresh face masks are way too much money as you have to use them within three weeks.

            I know what you mean! And it’s the same with all their products! You have to used them so fast if not they go bad, and they really do go bad! And to buy them regularly… Yeah! They can be expensive! 😳 xx

    This is one of my favourites from Lush and use it regularly in my bathing routine. I always get compliments from the boyfriend on how soft my skin is when I’ve used it. 😊
