To balance my other discussion, i thought i'd see what kinds of products people don't like that Lush do. Here's mine: 1) Pied De Pepper foot cream - this stuff stinks, even more than Snake Oil! I can't stand the smell of this, even though it gives you lovely soft feet. 2) Dreamcream body lotion - this stuff is supposed to be really great for getting rid of your eczema but when i tried it i found it made mine worse, plus the smell gave me a headache. I was sooo dissapointed! 3) Creamy Candy bubble bar slice - the smell of this is just too sweet and sickly for me. Definately one of my least fave scents, 4) Flying Fox shower gel/temple balm - yeuk, normally i love the smell of jasmine but there's just something so sickly about the smell of this. 5) You Snap The Whip body butter - not only did this product replace my beloved Stawberry Boat body scrub but it smells of vimpto (not a bad smell but not something i personally want to smell of) is far too scratchy and irritating to my skin, and also leaves your bath/shower and skin stained a rather horrible grey/black colour. Not nice! Right, so what about yours?

1. Karma-And I mean Karam anything. patchouli and I don't mix well....either on my skin or me having to smell it. 2. Ginger-Same as above. I don't like the smell at all, and I must say I'm glad it's being disconned. 3. Blue Skies BB- I really wanted to like it. I love the look of it. It's so cheery and happy looking...but then there's that patchouli again. 4. Butterball-It's not that I hate it, but it's very "meh". It's not nearly as moisturizing as I would have hoped, and I didn't get much scent off it. I won't buy it again. 5. Green Day BB- Inititally I was excited becuase I really like green smalls. But this one was just too earthy....it kinda made me think of cheap boy soap.

Lol, i think we probably have opposite tastes as i love patchouli! I guess the world would be very boring if we all liked the same thing though. I like all the products you've listed, do you like any of the ones i listed?

Actually I love YSTW. I love that Currant smell. How funny! We must have totally opposite body chemistry. The good news we would never have to compete for products, and between us we can keep LUSH in business :-)

1. Black Pearl - the smell made me feel slightly sick and I didn't enjoy the color of the water. The little message and the glitter did make it better, but not enough for me to buy it again. 2. Something Wicked bath melt - this was a big disappointment too, the smell was so fake and nothing like I was expecting. 3. Angels on Bare Skin - I thought it wasn't too bad for my skin, but the scent was ick although I did get used to it after a while. 4. Buffy - I absolutely loathed the scent of this, it smelled so bad. I liked the scrubbiness, but it's too oily for me. I would buy it again though if somehow I got used to the scent. 5. Mask of Magnaminty - loved the scent (mint and chocolate!), didn't see any improvement on my skin and was glad I only got a sample and didn't pay for the whole pot.

Demon in the Dark - made me feel so sick the first time I bought it! Apple and mint just do *not* go together!! Karma BB - I love the Karma smell, but it was so drying, my skin felt horrible after getting out of the bath. Any of the jellies - again I love the smells, but they are the most annoying things to try and use and so wasteful. I had Sweetie Pie, which I adore the scent of, but I dropped so much of it down the plug that I barely got to use much of it. Fairy Jasmine BB - the smell is horrible, not at all jasmine I find! And the glitter gets eeeeeeverywhere. There are a lot of others I haven't tried because I knew I wouldn't like them, but those are ones I thought I'd like but really really didn't!

Aww, demon in the dark is one of my absolute faves! I love the apple-mint combo! I pretty much love anything with mint.

I like far more Lush products than I dislike but these are my least favourites: 1) Soak & Float shampoo bar - it may work wonders on dandruff but it smells disgusting, like tar! 2) Godiva shampoo bar - to opposite - smells devine with honey and jasmine but didn't work on my hair. I think that was because it is a shampoo with conditioner. I have greasy roots and dry ends and the conditioner was too much for my roots (which I don't usually condition at all) but not enough for my tangly ends. 3)Skin Sin body lotion - I cannot stand the smell of this stuff. It is supposed to be cherry blossom but it just smells of blackcurrent to me, but very strong and musty as well. It replaced Potion, which is much nicer and smells of tangerine and rose. Luckily I can still get Potion from mail order. 4)Twinkle bath ballistic (a Christmas product) I love the smell of this as it's the same as the lovely American Cream conditioner, but once in the bath I can't smell anything so it's a waste of money. 5)Tramp - really don't like this scent on me - I can't seem to get on with the strong patchouli - although I do like it on men. I seems like a rather masculine smell to me.

*Another vote for Red Rooster!! I don't know how many samples of this Lush sent me over the years.. *Ginger *Karma *Sympathy- no amount of shaking could get rid of the plastic smell *Snowcake- I used to buy a bar every couple of years.. always smelled like Play-doh to me. I have always disliked the smell of play-doh. *HIWTK- (sorry I know lots of you like this one)- This is way too sweet smelling for me. I never really cared for the scents of Tramp or Skinny Dip either.

1. Youki Hi - I smelled this in the store and gagged, its way to strong for me 2. AOBS - got a sample from the stores. I couldn't' get it into a nice enough paste, and seemed like it left a residue behind, which I don't like the feeling of. 3. Fuel conditioner - know this is a discon. got it from my cousin as a gift. I couldn't get it to do anything. I didn't feel like it conditioned my hair one bit. 4. Sultana of Soap - got a sample, didn't like the scent nor the particles in it. 5. Avowash - I so wanted to like this but I couldn't handle the pine-sol sent it gave off.

1. I agree on the Dream Cream Lotion - I don't care goo it is for my skin - I can't have it on my skin without wretching. 2. Flying Fox aka Flying Vomit - this actually made me physically sick after the husband used it. 3. Karma anything - it's vile beyiond comprehension to my nose. 4. Any Lush facial moisturisers - they give me zits (and I'm in my 30s with dryish skin!) 5. Skinny Dip - whoever told me it smells like white chocolate obviously has very different olfactory sensors. 6. Anything with lavender in it - blech! And I'm worried about Sugar Rush - am I right to be worried when lavender is listed in the ingredients? And I know I have odd likes and dislikes - I adore Creamy Candy in all of its forms - I even stocked up on the melts when I was in the US (where Lush is very expensive). Also my reaction can be tainted by the reaction of the frangrances on my skin - I have odd skin chemistry which can turn many products. BNever Cocktail perfume smells like toilet cleaner after a few minutes on my skin. The only one from BNever that doesn't turn on me is the B Fragrance.

1. Karma. Karma soap, perfume, bomb, bubble bar, dusting powder... it all gives me a headache and smells gross. 2. Ginger. Same as Karma, everything ginger smells gross to me, I just can't stand it! 3. Snow fairy/rock star and all those sickeningly sweet pink scents also make me feel queasy. 4. Ultralight. "Light" my butt, this moisturizer was so heavy and greasy it left even my normally dry skin looking like an oil slick! Yuck. 5. Red rooster soap. It smelled so gross, as someone on the lush forum said, like "man juice" :P There really are a majority of products that I love, but these are some of the ones I can't stand to be near when I visit a Lush shop.

I didn't like Sultana of Soap, Wish Upon a Star, Flying Fox, Therapy massage bar, or It's a Pleasure Treasure Massage bar - I think the neroli or something was just too much for me. I got Mange Too instead.

It's a brand of bath, shower and beauty products made by a company with strong ethics using a lot of natural ingredients and not tested on animals. A lot of the products are vegan and all are vegetarian. They also make a lot of solid products such as bubble bars and shampoos to avoid the need for plastic bottles. Many of the products smell fantastic and work really well. I would highly recommend checking them out. The shops are quite kind in giving samples sometimes as well if you want to try something out. They are in most countries in Europe, as well as the UK and America.

I am sure your list is incomplete. And it will never be finalised.

Number one is definitely Aqua Marina. It's so foul. It smells like rotting fish. I tried to use it a few times but it had me heaving in the shower. This is even when I held my breath when using it! *yeuch*!
