Lush 9 to 5 Cleanser

You may not remember Violet Newstead slipping rat poison in Franklin M. Hart Jr’s coffee but me and my sister remember it as if it were yesterday.

Ahh yes the 80’s at its best and a good year for the film 9 to 5 starring Dolly Parton (yea she acted a little bit as well as sung little ditties, who knew?)

My sister and I have watched this flick way too many times to count and could possibly star in a remake….

But this isn’t really about the movie it’s about the new Lush 9 to 5 Cleanser!

Oh my!


What Lush Says About It:

Like Dolly says, 9 to 5 is quite the way to make a living. It can take its toll on the skin and leave you looking like she might without the cosmetic procedures. This is a gentle liquid cleanser made with almond oil, an extract of dove orchids and everlasting flower absolute. Orchids and everlasting flower soothe and clean the skin thoroughly with a mild antibacterial action, and almond gives you a silky smooth feeling. It’s great for taking off stubborn make-up and gives a fresh feeling after use.

What the Muse Says About It:

Yes please, I’ll have a large bottle. All that almond and almond oil and the likes makes it sound like it’ll smell lovely! Plus the whole great for removing stubborn make up had me at hello! Sounds positively dreamy….

I think I need to order me some.

Available now from Lush UK.

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.

  • Tammy

    What are the price points on the cleanser? How does it compare to other oil cleansers you’ve tried? Looks mighty interesting!

    • the Muse

      hi tammy I haven’t tried it hun. This isn’t a review just a post telling you that I find a new product 🙂 thought you might wanna see/hear about it. Normally if I review something I put a “review” after in the title. So no idea how it compares to oil cleansers etc…plus I don’t think it’s an oil cleanser at all? Not sure LOL as you can see I don’t know ALOT about it yet but when I buy it I’ll def review.

    • the Muse

      Gonna prob wait for Fall. Too hot to take advantage right now of airmail from UK 😀

        • the Muse

          no katy it evens out with shipping. the appeal is that you get fresher product and it’s faster shipping than US/NA shipping 🙂
