My experience with Lush Easter 2014 Collection.

I know I know I’m terribly late with this Easter Collection post, but I’ve been going through a pathetic phase and have come home to India this week and now I’ll get back with pending posts!


So, Lush launched a really nice collection for Easter, which had a lot of new and limited edition products. I’m reviewing 3 of the 10 products in this collection. These were limited edition and I feel so bad I’m posting about these so late.

Because of this, I had this coffee scrub on my wishlist since long and this is also their bestseller but since The Nature’s Co products are only sold at one place in Delhi, I wasn’t able to get it. And then I got an invite to the store and got this scrub for reviewing!

REVIEW: Aaranya rejuvenating face scrub gel – Rose & Germanium.


According to Aaranya,

For all skin type

Specially design scrub with Rose petals, Germanium extract and Walnut granules removes dirt and dead skin cells. Provides hydration and nourishment to the skin besides gentle exfoliation treatment.

Ingredients: Aqua, Glycerin, Walnut Granules, Sodium Hydroxide, Carboner, Lactic Acid, Benzyl Alcohol, Rose Petals, Germanium oil, Sodium Benzoate, Potassium Sorbate, Allantaion, Disodium EDTA, Aloe Vera Extract, Vitamin E Acetate, Colour and Fragrance.

Price: Rs.210 for 100grams.

Available at a lot of general stores and even newU has started keeping it, even has some of their stuff.

My experience:

I have a big fetish for all things with a rose fragrance and when I received this for reviewing I was elated! Seriously this smells amazing!


The Aaranya face scrub gel comes in a simple flip top cap tube. The tube is transparent and I really like the colourful label! Its cap shuts tightly and this tube is very travel friendly. Such tubes generally are not travel friendly but this one is very sturdy!

The cap dispenses the right amount of product and is very easy and convenient to use.


Talking about the texture of the face scrub, it’s truly a gel with scrub (walnut)particles. It is not at all harsh on skin and can be safely used 3-4 times a week or even daily! The scrubbing particles feel light on skin and yet do work in making skin smooth and soft. I find my skin feels very soft after using this!

This claims to be for all skin types and is true to its claims I feel. It doesn’t give very tall false claims and manages to live true to what it says.

It cleans skin very very well and also the best part is that it doesn’t dry out skin at all. Skin feels hydrated and supple after this. so, dry skinned beauties would not feel dry after using this. but yes it doesn’t control oil or anything but then neither does it claim to!


Talking about the scent, it’s a rose scent and it’s quite strong and everyone might not like the scent. But I really like it 😀 But it’s good that the scent only lingers for a few seconds. I’m not sure how germanium smells like but there is another smell in this too which isn’t bad either.

Another good thing about this is that it doesn’t contain any SLS or parabens.

The quantity is quite good and only a small amount is needed each time so I feel its priced okay according to that but it could have been priced lesser!

Overall, it’s a good mild scrub for regular use and does what it claims very well! It smells of roses and cleans skin very well without drying the skin! It’s great for summers and winters alike! Its also free of harsh chemicals! Recommended!

Why you’ll like it:

1)     Sturdy and travel friendly tube.

2)     Attractive packaging.

3)     Good and easy to use texture.

4)     Mild scrub.

5)     Nice rose scent.

6)     Cleans skin very well.

7)     Not drying in nature.

8)     Free of SLS & parabens

Why you’ll dislike it:

1)     Slightly overpriced.

2)     Strong smell may not be liked by all.
