When I worked at Lush Cosmetics, I swear I didn’t actually make any money. After I finished each shift I would pick up my little Lush basket and wander around the store buying new products to try out.
To make up for the lack of products I picked up at the Priceline sale, I went into Lush and splurged a little.
I did have an excuse for this splurge though. Recently, my skin has gone coconuts again! I have not had one blemish for… months and months. Until now! I have got this weird breakout thing going on and it’s really making me depressed. I have had so many problems with my skin over the years and have written several blog posts about my struggles *cue the violin music*. In all seriousness, whenever my skin has a little spaz out I always go back to Lush products to help calm it down and clear it up.
The skincare products that I picked up are:
- Angels on Bare Skin cleanser
This is Lush’s best selling facial cleanser. It is formulated for all skin types and contains lovely ingredients such as rose oil and lavender oil. It is grainy so it also doubles up as a gentle exfoliator. I loved this cleanser so much when I used to use it because it kept my skin really clear, so I thought I may as well use it again.
- Fresh Farmacy cleanser
This was the first Lush cleanser I ever bought. Containing calamine, it soothes and calms the skin. It was recommended to me at a time when my skin was at its worst and it did an amazing job of not only clearing up my blemishes, but also reducing my skin’s redness.
- Tea Tree Water
This is an awesome toner that contains tea tree oil as the name suggests. Tea tree oil can burn some people’s skin although this product contains the perfect amount of tea tree. It clears problematic skin yet doesn’t strip it and dry it out.
- Imperialis facial moisturizer
I got this moisturizer to use during the day. It is supposed to hydrate the skin, yet keep it balanced so that it doesn’t become oily.
- Skin Drink facial moisturizer
I have not used this moisturizer before, so I am very excited to try it out. I got this to use at night time as my skin is prone to becoming super dry which is very annoying. It contains ingredients such as evening primrose oil, almond oil, organic avocado and rose oil to name a few.
The bath products that I picked up are:
- Fluffy Egg bath bomb
This bath bomb is a limited edition Easter product. It is cute and pink, so of course I had to try pick it up to try out! It smells very sweet like candy.
- Twilight bath bomb
Ahh, Twilight… This will forever and always be my favourite Lush bath bomb. In fact, it may even be my all time favourite Lush product full stop. To me, the relaxing lavender scent of it is just next level. Nothing in the entire world smells better than Twilight. This pink bath bomb only gets better as soon as you drop it into the bath. As soon as the pink starts to fizz, a bright blue centre is revealed and glitter begins exploding – do I need to contine?
The shower products that I picked up are:
- The Olive Branch shower gel
This is just a classic Lush product. I can’t even explain this scent. It isn’t sweet, it isn’t spicy, it isn’t girly, it isn’t masculine – it’s just kind of unisex? I don’t think I will even attempt to try and describe the scent because it’s so difficult. I do know one thing though, it smells unbelievable!
- Pot O’Gold shower jelly
This shower jelly is also a limited edition Easter product. I think that this product smells exactly like the Lush stores when you walk in. It is a fun squishy and gold product and no doubt I will find myself standing in the shower playing with it and sadly wasting water.
I also picked up one hair product:
- Jason and the Argan Oil solid shampoo bar
Lush are famous for their solid shampoo bars but I have never tried one! Lush recently brought out a couple of new sold shampoo bars, so I thought now is the perfect time to try one. This particular bar smells like Rose Jam. If you have ever smelt the Rose Jam products or have ever used any, no doubt you are freaking out like I was when I found out this new bar is Rose Jam scented. This particular product is designed to help strengthen the hair and make it shinier, and they say it is ideal for people with lighter hair tones like myself. I’m very excited to try it out!
So there you have my extravagant Lush haul! I really love Lush Cosmetics for several reasons. They are a great company that never ever test on animals, a lot of the products are vegan friendly and they do so much for charity.
Do you love Lush as much as I do?
