♥ Silky Underwear
Silky Underwear from Lush is the first dusting powder i have tried in my life and i am honestly surprised that i have not even been remotely curious to try it before. The powder makes my skin feel silky smooth and it can be used as a deodorant, as a booster to help with the dreaded ‘chub rub’ in the summer, it can stop things from chafing and it can ‘dry’ out your hands if you need it to.
This product is honestly so versatile and i don’t really understand why i did not show any interest in it at first. The smell is lovely too, a nice and subtle jasmine scent that wont overpower any perfume you wear.
One thing to keep in mind while using it is that a little goes a long way. A month into using it i have maybe used one sixth of the bottle, and i have used it in many, many ways since i got it in the mail.
I would recommend this dusting powder to anyone who has been skeptical of trying it, it really is worth it, and the price is not bad at all when it lasts for so long.
Ingredients; Cornstarch, Kaolin, Fair Trade Organic Cocoa Butter, Magnesium Carbonate, Perfume, Jasmine Absolute, Vetivert Oil, Cinnamyl Alcohol, Benzyl Cinnamate, Linalool.

♥ Fairy Dust
If you have a sweet tooth and love the snow fairy scent from Lush, you will probably love this too. Like other dusting powders, this makes your skin feel great and dry and it can help with chafing and the dreaded chub rub in the summer. However, i would not recommend using this as a deodorant powder, like i occasionally do with Silky Underwear if i’m not doing anything particular. The main reason for this is the amount of glitter in it and it can feel kind of abrasive on sensitive skin. But if you enjoy glittery armpits, go ahead and use it!
Fairy dust is great for the skin, great for sprinkling on your sheets before going to bed, and you’ll wake up with glitter everywhere. It’s quite charming, i must say. I also sometimes pour some onto my carpet and vacuum it up to make my room smell lovely. It’s a very versatile product and i’m sure you would love it if you’re into more ‘girly’ and sweet scents.
Ingredients; Cornflour, Sodium Bicarbonate, Magnesium Carbonate, Perfume, Synthetic Musk, Calcium Sodium Borosilicate, Tin Oxide, Citral, Alpha Isomethyl Ionone, Limonene, Snowflake Lustre, Fandango Lustre.
♥ First Snow
First snow is one of many dusting powders made by Lush, and it is not part of the regular range of products. I think it was first released with the Christmas range years ago. I purchased two bottles from two separate people in a Lush Facebook group because i was on a dusting powder spree and wanted to try them all. I do regret purchasing it now, i will probably never finish them so i would most likely pass them on to a friend.
When i first received them i was very excited. The silky underwear dusting powder has made such a big difference in my life so i was hoping this would do the same. The powder is light and full of glitter and it looks great on the skin.
The thing i don’t like about it however is the smell. I have been on many a vacation to the canary islands and every time i’m there, the cleaning ladies at the hotel use a citrus scented chemical solution to clean the bathrooms. That is exactly what the dusting powder smells like to me, and I really cannot stand having it on my skin.
It is very festive and sparkly though, so if you can handle cleaning supply-scented stuff, you would probably love this. I will not ever purchase it again, but it is still a good product, i just wish it had a different scent.
Ingredients; Cornflour, Snowflake Lustre, Magnesium Carbonate, Talc, Geopearl crystal glittering rainbow, Perfume, Sweet Orange Oil, Cognac Oil, Lime Oil, Citral, Limonene, Citronellol, Linalool.
♥ Mr. Sandman
Mr Sandman is part of the Lush Christmas range. It is also part of the ever so popular Twilight scent family, and it smells wonderfully of lavender and chamomile. It is not an overpowering lavender scent like i can find other products to be though, in fact it is very pleasant!
Dusting powders are very versatile and i use them in many ways. I sprinkle some onto my mattress before putting on new sheets, i sprinkle some on the floor when i vacuum to use it as a room scent, i use it as dry shampoo if i’m in a pinch and i use it ‘normally’ by rubbing it into my skin whenever i need to freshen up a bit. The dusting powder absorbs oil and moisture and leaves your skin feeling really smooth and nice.
I think dusting powders are some my favorite products from Lush, both because they are so versatile and also because they last for a really long time. You don’t have to use much at a time so a bottle is almost guaranteed to last you for ages. The weight on the bottles might not seem like a lot but the powders get a bit compacted after a while and then you can just shake the bottle and it looks completely full again.
Another thing that is great about this dusting powder in particular is that it is great to use before bedtime, which you can kinda tell from the name. It doesn’t have an insane amount of glitter either so that is a bonus. I feel like using it before bedtime is like receiving a big, warm hug and it really helps me to fall asleep a bit more comfortably.
