Massive Lush Haul

Tuesday, 27 November 2012

Avobath Bath Bomb - £3.20 - This is a super fizzy bomb, it isn't as green as it looks on the Lush website. It has a strong citrus smell which is from the lemongrass but isn't too drying on the skin as it consists of avocado which is nourishing. I probably wouldn't recommend this if you have super dry skin. I find citrus smells quite revitalising so I tend to use them in my bath if I am getting ready for a night out and not if I am getting straight into bed. 



Fun (Pink) Bath Playdough - £5 - If you are simple minded like myself and enjoy the simple things in life then you will love this. It is so much fun, as the name suggests. This bath bar has the consistency of playdough and can be shaped and reshaped into different figures. It smells like Snow Fairy - which is quite sweet, probably sweeter than I would prefer. It says that it is suitable as bath bar, soap and shampoo, I probably wouldn't use it as shampoo. 



Yuzu & Cocoa Bubbleroon - £2.95 - This is one of my favourites, I love the fact that it is easily split in two as it is shaped like a Macaroon. It means you can get more baths out of it as I like to through the whole lot in usually. It has a strong coconut/coco smell to it, and when melted in the bath it is quite thick and creamy. It is really soft on the skin and creates huge bubbles - which is what I don't get from a bath bomb. 




Karma Bubble Bar - £3.15 - This is my favourite Lush scent by far, there is something mentally stimulating about these. I can't quite describe what they smell like - but it is definitely worth the travel to the store to go and smell them. They create lots of bubbles and turn your bath water orangey. The best thing about these little bars, is that they can break easily and you only need a small amount for your bath. I usually get four baths out of one of these. 


Sex Bomb Bath Bomb - £3.20 - This was the first thing that I ever brought from Lush when I was about 15/16. I'm no longer a massive fan of it, it is massive and I find them hard to break so I tend to only get one use per bath. It again is sweet smelling but I do like that little rose floats around the bath which is quite cute. It is a very girly bath bomb as the water goes pink and it has a strong Jasmine smell. 



The Comforter Bubble Bar - £4.25 - A pricer bar of the bunch, but it is a lot larger in size. It has strong berry scents as just like the Karma bar, it is easy to split into pieces to get several baths out of it. I personally (and I don't know why) can't get this bar to bubble as much as others than I use. It also is quite girly and you get bright pink water which is a nice effect. 



Buffy Body Butter - £5.95 for 90grams - If you have super dry skin... then this is perfect for you. It is like an exfoliating, soap and body moisturisers all in one. My skin isn't as dry and this product would prefer so I do get a slight residue which is a bit annoying but it tends to sink into the skin after I have got out and dried. It is full of coco butter and shea butter and is really soothing for sun damage or winter bitten skin. This would remain a bath essential for me. Although Aqua Mirabilis is still my favourite but it is the same concept. 



Creamy Candy Bubble Bar - £2.50 - Another sweet scent bubble bar, I don't know why I buy these because I know the smell isn't my favourite. It must be something to do with the inner little girl in me. This for me is standard - I don't love it nor do I hate it. It's pink, it's bubbly and it smells nice, what more could you want?



Jungle - Solid Conditioner - Sample - Lush are great for giving away a couple of samples when you buy a few bits and GOSH I buy a lot in there. I am pretty sure my local store know my skin type and preferences as well as their own. This solid conditioners is weird. I LOVE the smell of it - I need to find a bath bomb or something the same smell as this. However, I rub it into the ends of my hair and I am not sure whether it is because my hair is super dry that it just dries up that you can never feel it in there. Bit disappointed but I am glad that I never purchased one of them. 



Aromaco - Solid Deodorant - Sample - This is another product that I have wanted to try but never that much that I wanted to part with the money. Now I am not sure if I am using it right or whether my arms are super sensitive but when I rub it on there it isn't creamy and nor does it really work. Am I using it right? It feels that I should be melting it first as it is too hard. 



Catastrophe Cosmetic - Face Mask - £5.95 - My favourite face mask, by far. It helps sorts of my spots, soothes my skin and evens the skin tone. That's a lot to get from a face mask and I am glad that I get it. It is full of blueberries and they contain antioxidants which are great clearing skin. I apply this quite liberally and I leave it on for about 15mins whilst I am in the bath. I then exfoliate it into my skin and use a muslin cloth to make sure it takes of the last of the remains. 
BIG - Sea Salt Shampoo - £11.25 - Again, my favourite shampoo. I did a full review of this here but all I can say is that this product is AMAZING and if you haven't tried it - DO!

Fair Trade Foot Lotion - £8.95 - This sounds weird but if I have been on my feet a lot or I have been at the gym, my feet can get quite sore. This foot cream is like a little cuddle for your feet, it contains peppermint so it quite minty smelling and cooling. I get through tubs of this and as much as I quite like my Body Shop one, this is my favourite. Also it helps nourish and soften dry skin!

I'm off to buy my Christmas Lush Haul - I am a bit excited to review these new bits (well I got them for my birthday which was September). I just love everything Lush but I wanted to make sure that the Christmas Collection doesn't steal the limelight of these favourites. :)

  19. I have seen some reviews of the salt shampoo and I have to say I am tempted to try I have very long thick hair so hopefully it will help make it more manageable! x
