Although I’m calling this a mini haul, it’s what I would actually consider this a regular sized haul, but I’ve seen people’s Lush Haul’s on Youtube, and they are mega hauls!
Last week my bestie came into the town I work in for a little trip to Lush and to get Sushi. She cleverly named this meeting, Lushi! She’s punny like that. Every day when I get off the bus and take the five minute walk to work, I go right past a Lush shop. Every day I stop and admire the beautiful window displays. They make me want to buy the pretty coloured bath bombs, the themed bubble bars, the facemasks that smell good enough to eat (warning: these may say vegan, but they are not edible) and the can’t live without face toners or body butters.
I had seen the new Easter collection, specifically the chick ‘n’ mix bath bomb, and had to check it out. I also wanted to get a scrub (for my barley there tan), a lavender bubble bar and more shower gel. I left Lush with all the things I wanted; I was one very happy customer. I would also recommend going with a friend, if you accidently get bath bomb dust on your nose from sniffing them all, you’ve got someone who will tell you.
Chick ‘n’ Mix Bath Bomb
How cute is this little guy? My brother thinks it looks like a penis, but I am ignoring this. I’m not even sure how to use this bath bomb. Do I use it in three separate goes or all at once? I went for all at once option. It’s all or nothing. This little guy doesn’t just look sweet, he smells sweet too. As you can see he made the bath water go bright green.
Sheep Bubble Bar
I actually went into Lush wanting to get A French Kiss as I am a little obsessed with the relaxing powers of lavender at the moment. However I ended up buying the cute thing again, and got this little sheep. This is the Baa Bar Bubble Bar (4B’s). This guy also smells of lavender and Shea butter or Almond milk. I think this guy will be great for a bath just before bed time. He’ll get you in the right state of mind for a good night’s sleep.
I want to get a scrub because I accidently got sun burnt on my holidays and my legs are shedding like a snake out of its old skin (sorry for the overshare). I was thinking of getting Rub Rub Rub shower scrub, which I have used and love. Then I came across this pink scrub bar (pink’s my favourite colour so that alone had me hooked), and it turns out this is Rub Rub Rub, but in a bar. I love this. I prefer using the bar over the regular formula. It’s not as hard and rigid to use as the Buffy scrub, it kind of has some flexibility when using it. It is really exfoliating, and although it doesn’t fall apart you could break smaller pieces off if you wanted to.
It’s Raining Men
I have been using the Prince Charming Shower Gel for the last month or so, and it is going to run out soon. I’ve loved using this it smells sweet, but not too sweet and I love making my body pink. It is literally like painting yourself pink, it washes off, but does stains your nails pink for the day (not that I minded). Anyway, I needed a new shower gel. I had seen It’s Raining Men on the shelf before but I had never picked it up to give it a sniff. Boy I did not know what I was missing. It smells exactly like Honey I Wash The Kids, which is one of the first things I ever brought from Lush. It lathers up nicely, and I will definitely be repurchasing.
Products from Lush make me think of Hygge. I think of long relaxing baths, followed by a hot drinks, cosy pyjamas, blankets and a good book. What pamper evening, me time or a relaxing weekend doesn’t have a Lush product involved in it somewhere? I’ve been reading a book on Hygge and it is definitely a life style that I could get use too and want to adopt. I only wish Lush made candles!
