Your Face Will Smell Like Cookies

I'm not lying. Your face will smell good enough to lick, well for reasons other than you might already be doing. *bowchickawowow*

Anyway, I digress. This is Lush's Let The Good Times Roll facial cleanser. It's virtually cookie dough with glycerine in it. Corn oil, maize flour, cornmeal, cinnamon, and the aforementioned glycerine make this delectable cleanser great for all skin types. It's a super gentle cleaner with tiny grains of cornmeal for exfoliation.

What's all the hullabaloo about this stuff? Well, last year Lush made this stuff a seasonal cleanser and then discontinued it a few months after releasing it. Needless to say, people were pissed. Thankfully enough people complained so now this yummy facial cleanser is permanent. 

Go ahead, rejoice. I know I did.
As well as the cornmeal for exfoliation, the cinnamon is subtly warming on the skin so it leaves your skin balanced and bright. Cinnamon isn't just for the smell! It's also a bit moisturizing because of the corn oil, and glycerine being a natural humectant makes it perfect for this time of year when your skin is all, "what the hell is happening?!"
Just like all the other clay cleansers at Lush, grab a little pea-sized amount and add water for a paste-like consistency and scrub it all over your face. As far as the cleansers go, I'd saw that this one isn't quite as moisturizing as Angels on Bare Skin, but one step down and doesn't leave as much of a residue as AOBS does. I've got dry skin and it works great for me, and I've also heard from a lot of customers that it works for their oily, acne-prone skin as well.

Of all of Lush's cleansers, I'd probably recommend this one the most this time of year because of the changing seasons. If you like that scrubby feel but can't deal with the large salt granules in Ocean Salt, give Let The Good Times Roll a shot. Heck, if it doesn't work for your face use it as a hand scrub and just smell your hands all day. 

I wouldn't recommend trying to eat it though. Gardenia and Glycerine don't taste very good.

  1. Hey quick question, does this seem to leave your skin red at all? Your hand looks slightly red in the picture and I have qualms about the cinnamon in the ingredients because I feel like it could potentially be irritating to my sensitive skin since once it gets red it stays red for awhile. Thanks!

    1. oh that's just how my skin looks. It's always that color. I'd give it a try before buying it if you're worried, but I haven't had any issues with it making my face red.

  2. Thanks for hosting! This week I’ve shared a post about my decision to stop eating corn and cucumbers and other summer produce until they come into season again where I
