Hey there, bow friends!
How are you all doing? Awesome, I hope! I got a really lovely opportunity to get to go to Lush (Thanks Beau and family!<3) and have a good look around this last week. And as some of you will know, you can’t come out of Lush empty handed. I thought I’d share with you a few of the things that I brought home with me.
Tea Tree Toner Water – $9.95 The last time I used a toner it was the Simple Soothing Facial Toner. I wasn’t completely sold on it, but it was gentle and something to use at the time. I couldn’t tell the difference between my skin with or without toner with the Simple one and thought I’d try something else. I could see the difference in my skin after the first time I spritzed with the Tea Tree Toner. It has the ever so magical combination of tea tree, grapefruit, and juniper berry to help control oil, act as an astringent, keep things clean, and balance out the skin. I love this so much.
Grease Lightning Tea Tree Cleanser – $13.95 I had first heard of this spot treatment in a video from Sammi of beautycrush. I suffer from some hormonal acne (yum) and get really annoyed with it. I’ve used this for the last week and I it’s worked wonders. It wears well under makeup as well as without. It reduces the redness and size of my spots and dries them out. As it also has tea tree in it, it has antibacterial properties that help keep everything sanitary. This is a winner in my book.
Butterball Bath Bomb – $4.95 I can’t leave Lush without a bath bomb. I haven’t used this one just yet, but I’m excited to. It smells like vanilla and honey and is meant to make the bath water creamy and buttery. I can’t wait to have a relaxing bath with this little guy.
Porridge Soap – $6.95 While I was in the store, I asked you all on twitter if there was anything from Lush you thought I should try. Megan of Little Miss Average recommended a few things to me, but the one that stood out most was Porridge. The soap smells like caramel/cinnamon oatmeal and has oats in it to help exfoliate and soften the skin. It also apparently has organic orange juice in it to help brighten too. I’ll be honest, whenever I smell it I just want to eat it.
Bohemian Soap – $7.50 One of the best parts of Lush is the free samples. I was really excited to have a piece of Bohemian soap in my bag as I’m crazy about fresh lemony scented soaps. The soft lemon smell is gorgeous and due to the lemon oil, it’s apparently a great facial cleanser. I’m not sure I’ll be using it for that, but I will use this thing up.
Rock Star Soap – $7.95 Another free sample was a nib of Rock Star soap. I’m not crazy about this one, I do have to say. It smells like overwhelmingly sweet candy with a dash of very musky perfume. Apparently there’s a ton of vanilla in this, which I normally love, but I’m not head over heels this time.
And that’s everything, besides a piece of Dirty soap for beau. He loves minty scents. I hope some of my mini reviews were helpful! You’ll probably see the toner and the spot treatment in an upcoming post of some sort.
Have a great weekend everyone! We shall talk soon.
