I’m a total LUSH noob. I’ve gone into that stores only a handful of times and have owned just a few items. I want to venture more into the brand but I’m usually too overwhelmed by the crowds, the smells, and the selection in there – so normally I walk around in a circle and back out the door. But, I have a friend who worked at LUSH so I picked her brain to help me choose some items, and this is what I ended up with:
Yes I said my previous post was the last of the hauls, my January hauls… this was purchased this past weekend, in February. 😉
What I got:
Refresher Shower Jelly
I really wanted to try a shower jelly after seeing the limited edition Halloween bat one on other blogs. I don’t take baths so bath bombs and whatnot are lost on me. This Shower Jelly smells of lemons and wobbles in the tube – I hope this is as fun as it looks!
Turkish Delight Shower Smoothie
This is a cult favourite and I’m excited to try it. I just smelled it and it is lovely – featuring 2 of my favourite scents: jasmine and rose.
The Sacred Truth Fresh Face Mask
This has a super short lifespan – less than a month! And it has to be refrigerated. I’ll have to use this twice a week to make sure I use it up. I originally looked at the Mask of Magnaminty which is popular but it contains peppermint oil which irritates my skin. So I opted for something more gentle and this mask contains honey, glycerin, kaolin, papaya, yogurt… nothing crazy. One thing is for sure, this will make an appearance in the February Trash Stash! 😉
This is another customer favourite. I like the look of the ingredients: oat milk, rose water, olive oil, cocoa butter… yum. It has a very soft scent. I noticed that this is the “self-preserving” formula and a comparison to the “regular” formula reveals that this version doesn’t not contain parabens – both versions sell for the same price.
Sophisticated Cream Eyeshadow
I remembered when LUSH launched their makeup line – everyone was ga-ga over it. But I don’t hear much about their makeup anymore. This cream shadow looks like a great taupe shade, which is perfect timing since I’m about to trash one of my taupe cream shadows soon (makeup purge coming soon!) My Low-Buy February budget is $50 (I’m only counting makeup items) so the purchase of the LUSH eye shadow means I have $30.05 left. 🙂
I can’t wait to try these – have you used any of these? What are your favourite LUSH products?
