Another Lush Haul (I Have A Problem...)


The shock and disappointment that was felt when opening my 'LUSH storage' box to find it completely empty was horrifying. It meant only one thing - I had to go and stock up. Now it's September the colder, darker nights that call for bath-time are fast approaching and it was a vital, life threatening emergency (maybe not quite 'life threatening', but you get the idea). I'll start with bath ballistics...

Dragon's Egg - £3.25
I'll usually make a beeline for every sweet smelling creation I can find in LUSH, but every once in a while it's nice to use something a bit fresher - especially with dark, groggy winter mornings fast approaching, I need something more to drag me out of bed. Dragon's Egg contains lemon oil, so it smells lovely and lemony fresh (round of applause for Captain Obvious over here). Apparently it includes popping candy and glitter too which makes it all the better. 

Butterball - £2.50
Another thing I love about LUSH is how wonderfully inexpensive most things are. Like this little gem. Butterball isn't the typical all singing, all dancing bath ballistic, instead it's packed with cocoa butter and ylang ylang and fizzes away gently. Did I mention it smells amazing?

Twilight - £3.25
I've been umm-ing and ahh-ing over this pink blob for a long time. Today was the day I cut my losses and took the plunge. This has been filling my room with the scent of lavender all day and it's so relaxing. Twilight contains bundles of essential oils to aid sleep so I can't wait to pop this into a warm night-time bath after a busy day. 

The Comforter - £4.50
I suppose you could call this my 'usual' bubble bar, I've repurchased this bad boy time and time again. The Comforter is massive and little goes a long way - I usually get 3 or 4 bubble baths out of one bar. It smells like blackcurrant and berries and you end up with a lovely pink, bubbly bath. Winner. 

MMMelting Marshmallow Moment - £3.95
If you know LUSH, you know Snow Fairy and THIS. SMELLS. LIKE. SNOW. FAIRY. UGH.
I'm such a sucker for that classic Christmas scent and I think I've found it's doppelgänger. I've only ever tried the Dreamtime bath melt and have wanted to try another ever since, they're super moisturising and soothing and perfect for when you want something a little gentler than a bath ballistic. 

None Of Your Beeswax - £5.75
No stranger to my blog, the None Of Your Beeswax Lip Balm is a firm staple of mine. (You can read a review of this and a LUSH Lip Scrub here). However, I went and left my old one in a hotel in Reading, after we left the for the festival. Was I disappointed? Hell yes. So I needed a new one... And that's all really. 

Tea Tree Toner Water - £7.50
 This is something I've heard so many good things about, so I decided to give it a try myself. Toner is a step I've missed out in my skincare routine for ages, and now winter's coming I decided I want to give my skin a bit more love. I've always had good experiences with tea tree so I have high hopes!

Retread - £10.25
The ends of my hair are a state, there's no doubt about it. I considered purchasing the Hair Doctor mask at first, but I don't think the whole 'keeping it in the fridge' thing is for me, I'll just end up forgetting it's there. Instead I opted for Retread as it's a repairing, soothing, heavyweight conditioner which is right up my street. Can't say it smells all that great but if it does the job, I don't mind.



Also, does anyone else loooove how the 'LUSH Times' has had a bit of an upgrade? The lady at the counter popped this in my bag with the rest of my stuff and it's so cute. The catalogue in the back of the magazine means I can discover new things and put them on my 'want' list, without having to be anywhere near a LUSH store, and the little stories inside really opened my eyes to LUSH as a company and why they do what they do.

Have you tried any of these bits from LUSH? I'm all up for trying new things so if there's anything you recommend, reveal all please!
