I LOVE Lush! But I also LOVE supporting small businesses! Unfortunately, with sensitive skin, it’s often hard to find products from other companies that won’t irritate me for days. Luckily, I found one (so far!) that I can wholeheartedly recommend to those with sensitive and regular skin alike: The Aroma Delights!
I first found Ashley, the founder and CEO of the company on Twitter as part of a thread promoting Black-owned businesses. Immediately, I was captured by the dramatic swirls and popping colors of her confection-like products.
But someone with skin as sensitive (read: annoying) as mine could never use something that looked as amazing and edible as that, right? Wrong!
After DMing with Ashley about her ingredients, I would have happily taken a chance and saved up to buy a few containers, albeit still nervously due to my skin’s pickiness. Before I got the chance, I was lucky enough to win one of her giveaways! (And I never win giveaways!) I was so excited to try her sample pack–a kit including two body scrubs, a whipped soap, and a body cream–and it didn’t disappoint.
In fact, I would recommend Aroma Delights products to any Lush fan who wants to try something new and support a really sweet and authentic businessperson!
Below, I rated each product from my sample pack on a scale from one (horrible, would never get again) to ten (would 100% buy and recommend to anyone). To make shopping even easier for my fellow Lushies, I have included product comparisons so you’re sure to be in love with what you pick.
Pineapple Papaya Scrub
Probably my favorite scrub of the bunch, the Pineapple Papaya body scrub smelled absolutely amazing and leaves a subtle, clean scent on skin. I will definitely be purchasing another container of this!
For Lushies who love: Aurora Borealis scrub, Easy Peeler Scrub
Although this scrub smelled a bit more artificial than its counterparts, I loved how much the scent reminded me of a Jolly Rancher! Its blue candy scent was subtly sweet on the skin, very softening, and didn’t leave any color or residue despite its bright blue hue.
For Lushies who love: Magic Crystals scrub, Celebrate Body Spray
Lavender Vanilla Scrub
This scrub will be heaven for lavender fans! Very sweet and flowery, it did a great job of exfoliating and softening skin, even on tough areas.

Strawberry Cheesecake Whipped Soap Scrub
I couldn’t stop smelling this sample! Honestly, I think it smells better than strawberry cheesecake itself. I adore the application of this scrub-whipped soap mix. It feels pleasantly creamy and lightly exfoliating, and leaves skin feeling fresh and softer than ever. Wonderful idea and exemplary execution!
For Lushies who love: Snow Fairy, Rub Rub Rub
Coco Mango Whipped Soap
I fell in love with this whipped soap instantly! I adore the scent, texture, color, and smoothness of its application. My skin emerged super soft and moisturized, and the whipped soap was a pleasure to use. I would love to get my hands on more of this beauty!
For Lushies who love: Dirty Shaving Cream, D’Fluff Shaving Cream
Honey Butter Whipped Soap
I loved the texture and smell of this one: It’s salty-sweet, buttery, and gorgeously creamy. I definitely recommend it to those with dry skin, but my sensitive skin wasn’t in love with my batch of this product, which utilized a different base from the other whipped soap. The new-and-improved formula (made from scratch!) is likely to stop any issues in the future, so give it a try!
For Lushies who love: Popcorn Lip Scrub, D’Fluff Shaving Cream, Honey I Washed the Kids Soap
Cashmere Body Creme
I saved the best for last! This lotion was literally sent from the heavens. Super thick and creamy, Cashmere has a beautifully complex scent–blueberry, white freesia, wild grape, pomegranate, lily, magnolia, green vines, cashmere, and violet–and a little goes a long way. The formula leaves skin feeling soft, bouncy, and hydrated. It absorbs quickly and doesn’t leave any residue, which is a huge plus, but its effects last long after application. Cashmere even brightened my tattoos! This formula is sensitive skin-approved (for me at least!) and I will definitely be purchasing it by the ton in the near future.
For Lushies who love: Charity Pot lotion, Sleepy lotion, Snowflake lotion
