Lush Scent Dupes: Lathers & Lights Lush Rock Star and Lush Candy Fluff Dupes

The Muse loves herself some Lush, with a passion. I’ve been a Lush fan as far back as Cosmetics To Go (If you’re a Lushie you’ll know all about CTG) but I’ve always wondered at their mentality over at Lush. Some of my very favorite scents never make it into products I’d really love to see scented with them. Like I’d love a Snow Fairy scented shampoo, granted I can use Snow Fairy Shower Gel in my hair but still I’d adore a shampoo and conditioner scented like this!

The good news is you can find dupes, damn good dupes, of all your favorite Lush scents.

Jump ahead for the deets!

An e-tailer by the name of Lathers & Lights has every single Lush scent duped and available in a wide variety of perfumes, bath and body goodies, shampoos, conditioners, and more!

Imagine, the world of Lush scents at your fingertips that can be blended into any product you want. Fantastic right?

I recently purchased a few conditioners from Lathers & Lights and although I simply hate silicons near my hair I do tolerate them from time to time.

I purchased four conditioners in four Lush dupe scents. First off the conditioners are not so fabulous, they are a bit drying, plus the silicons cause havoc with my tresses. Also out of the four scents only two were spot on dupes. I imagine that this is why Lush doesn’t always offer certain scents in certain products as the essential oils possibly morph when mixed with different mediums.

The two that did work were Candy Clouds which is a Candy Fluff dupe and Rock Candy which is a Rockstar Soap dupe. These were both fantastic! My hair is smelling all Rockstar-like today, loves it!

Now the two scents that converted badly were Sultana’s Secret (Sultana of Soap Dupe) and Champagne Flurries (Champagne Snow Showers). Sultana’s Secret ended up smelling like Jungle to me and Champagne Flurries ended up smelling floral instead of the effervescent orange I so dearly love.

My two disappointments really haven’t stopped me from wanting to pursue more of Lathers & Lights offerings as seriously Lush dupes? I’m on that! I do wish Lush would embrace the idea of doing a few shampoos and such as this and never really understood why they haven’t. Seems like a great idea with lovers like me around.

I’ve seen a few e-tailers doing Lush dupe scents but from what I understand they are incredibly expensive oils to keep in stock which is why I adore that Lathers & Lights stocks almost every Lush scent around!

After reading this review you may find yourself plotting an order so I took the liberty of creating a list of the scents that are Lush dupes as they are not the original Lush names on the site so you may have trouble locating the scent you want.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Seems I’m a year late, but this was awesome. I’m starting to make my own soaps etc. and I have all the chemicals to make the stuff – but I can’t get fragrance oils that smell like – you guessed it – lush. I can get the usuals, apple, lavender, etc. But none of the cool stuff, bubblegum, cupcake etc. They can’t be shipped cross boarder. They can send me 2 pounds of glycerine, but draw the line at an ounce of Lemon Drop Rain fragrance oil… go figure!

    I am so excited to not only read this but finding out there’s a lush dupe site. My favorite lush scent is Vanillary it drives me and my husband crazy although I was going to try and make my own dupe I came to brutal stop because the main ingridient to Vanillary is tonka bean which by the way is illegal in the USA so finding it is impossible. I did however duplicate Karma another favorite of mine which I use on my children and silky underwear. So I am getting the hang of duplicating some scents. Like you I am a blogger as well and I find making some lush products to be easier for me than duplicating the scents. Please make a post if you try lather and lights vanillary lush dupe I would love to hear your honest opinion. Thank you for the post I’ll be passing this info to my readers as well lush has great products just bad prices lol.
