Lush Haul

Monday 27 June 2011


Here are my recent Lush purchases that I've bought recently. Some are repurchases of old favourites and some are products that I've wanted to try out:-

The Olive Branch shower gel – The very first time I tried this, I wasn’t that keen on the scent as it reminds me of a lot of stereotypical ‘male’ shower gels, but it’s really grown on me and I use it as a refreshing change ever now and again.

Happy Hippy shower gel – Probably my all time favourite showe gel from Lush that I can purchase all year round. It smells like a citrusy fruit cocktail and it’s also great doubled up as a shampoo. Perfect for travelling around with.

Sugar Scrub – I’ve tried the other scrub (the white one called Sugar Babe) and this green one has a wonderful herbal type of scent but is much rougher, so do use with care. I smush these into a pot, add some water and make it into a scrubby paste and find them very effective.

Soft Coeur massage bar – I use the massage bars as solid perfumes and sometimes as a solid body moisturiser. This one has a lovely scent (very sweet but not too sickly), but what’s with that piece of chocolate inside it?! It’s great until it melts and hits the chocolate part, just gets too messy thereafter.

Stepping Stone foot scrub – Smells amazing, quite zingy, but I didn’t think much of its actual use. It was much too soft and crumbled very easily. I turned this into a paste again using the method above and got two uses out of it. I don’t think I’d repurchase this. Probably better if I used the Sugar Scrub on my feet instead.

Buffy bar – I can’t really agree with its claims on slaying cellulite because I don’t think anything ever changes the appearance of mine, but I absolutely love this product as a solid moisturizer that also exfoliates. I use it in the shower (turning the water off, layering this on and then rinsing it off) and it makes my skin unbelievably soft. Buffy is also one of my essentials during winter because it means I don’t have to apply cold moisturiser after a nice hot shower!


Oatifix fresh face mask – Using Lush’s recycling pots offer, I got this for free. My skin is usually typically combination but gets more oily during the summer, so this product wasn’t meant for me as it’s best for dry skins. However, as it was the only face mask left in the store, I decided to get it anyway and that yummy scent of cookie dough was just too tempting to pass by. It made my skin super soft and was a nice exfoliator too. I was a little apprehensive that it might break me out, but I didn’t have any problems and got around ten applications from this pot. It is the messiest face mask I have tried from Lush though, was a bit tricky to apply as it doesn’t stick all that well to the skin so requires a bit of patience!
