As the title suggests, this is a collective lush haul. I did not purchase all of the items at one go.
A few weeks ago, a friend from Perth came over to Sydney for a short getaway. We went shopping and I had to drop by my local Lush store. I was running out of my favourite You Snap The Whip Body Butter.
To be honest, I think most of Lush's bar soaps are pretty useless and extremely drying on my skin. This is just my personal opinion though. However, there are a few Lush items which I love a lot and have worked wonders on my skin thus far. You Snap The Whip Body Butter is one of them.
I definitely recommend Lush lovers to try the Body Butters. They help to exfoliate and at the same time, moisturise your skin with essential oils. You Snap The Whip contains Macadamia Nut Oil and Bergamot Oil. It leaves my skin feeling extremely smooth, moisturised and smelling like blackcurrents.
Since I have had such great results with You Snap The Whip Body Butter, I decided to get myself The Soft Touch Body Butter to try. It basically works the same as You Snap The Whip, just with a different scent and different essential oils in it. I have not tried it, but will definitely do a quick review of it once I have.
If you buy 2 body butters, Lush will give you a body butter tin for free. It retails for AUD$5.95 each in Australia. It is great for storing Lush soaps and help keep them away from moisture and dirt.
Another awesome product from Lush that I absolutely love, are their Massage Bars. Not all of them smell nice though.
Lush recently came out with a new massage bar called Strawberry Feels Forever. It is shaped in a huge pink strawberry but, it does not actually smell like strawberries. To be honest, I don't really know how to explain the scent. It does smell strongly of cocoa butter though.
I like using Lush's massage bars after showering. It works the same as body moisturisers, just that it contains a cart full of essential oils, cocoa butter and shea butter. I find that it takes my skin about an hour to fully "absorb" the product. It is definitely not for someone who dislike having that oiled up feeling all over their body.
Another massage bar that I got to try is the Heavenilly Massage Bar. It is also a new massage bar by Lush. It contains Jasmine & Vanilla Absolute, shea butter, cocoa butter and coconut oil. I think it smells more strongly of coconut oil and just a hint of vanilla scent. Have not tried it yet.
Simiar to the square tin, if you purchase 2 massage bars, you'll get this oval shaped tin for free. I use it to keep my massage bars and it prevents them from melting due to the heat. Retails for AUD$5.95 too.
I have to admit, I buy Lush's Shower Jellies purely for the novelty of it. I mean, have you tried showering with a jelly?
Just a few weeks ago, my local Lush store was having a promo on the Snow Showers Jelly, which is a holiday item. The promo was BUY 1 GET 2 Free. Yes, you read right. Buy 1 Snow Showers Jelly, you'll get 2 Snow Showers Jelly for FREE! Let me say, these babies don't cheap ya know! Well, Lush items don't come cheap actually. So, my friend and I decided to get these just to try & well, have fun with. LOL!
Sadly, Snow Showers Jelly is no longer available. It leaves your skin smelling like grapefruits! Though the scent doesn't last very long on your skin. One thing about shower jellies is, they don't lather a lot. Don't expect it to lather up with loads of bubbles and foam.
I have also previously tried The Joy of Jelly Shower Jelly and Whoosh Shower Jelly.
Lush's Shower Jellies are not anything WOW for my skin, unlike the body butters. But it definitely does not dry up my skin as much as the normal Lush soaps.
I recently ran out of my Loreal Pure Zone Exfoliating Gel Wash & was searching for a new product to try. I was at my local Lush Store yesterday, when the salesgirl recommended me this particular facial cleanser. It is the Fresh Farmacy Facial Cleanser & it is a cleansing facial BAR for troublesome skin.
It is made with soothing chamomile and calamine for senstive or difficult skin. The salesgirl said it can help soothe any redness and pimples. It also contains lavender oil, tea tree oil and rose absolute. It smells basically like lavender actually. Have not tried it yet but I can't wait to! :)
The Lush salesgirl was also very sweet to give me a sample of the Vanishing Cream Face Moisturiser. It is a moisturiser suitable for acne prone & oily skin. She also included a 10% off voucher for this moisturiser & it is valid for 2 months.
I love my local Lush store's service staff. They are always friendly & ready to help you out with anything. :)
And this concludes my collective Lush haul entry. If you love Lush, I definitely recommend you trying the products shown here. :)
