Lush Haul

If you follow me on twitter or tumblr, you're well aware of my obsession with LUSH. I'm a definite Lushie. I discovered LUSH through the Youtube beauty community. If you've never heard of LUSH, it's a fresh and handmade bath/beauty product store. They're all natural, non animal testing cosmetic products that are to die for. They vary from skin care, bath products, shower products, hair care, perfumes, and various other body goodies. If you've never been, you will be overwhelmed by the amount and variety that they carry, so I definitely recommend doing some research on their website or watching youtube video reviews.

The closest LUSH store to me was about 40 minutes away and with gas prices, I really can't afford the drive all the time. I was so super excited to have one open about 10 minutes from my house at the mall where I work! Great for me, bad for my wallet. I decided to splurge a little bit on a few more goodies than I usually get to celebrate the opening of the new store (or just because). haha

Butterball Bath Bomb- This is a super hydrating bath bomb for dry skin. It has pieces of cocoa butter and smells like heaven. It's a must try!

Honey I Washed the Kids Soap- This is one of Lush's best selling soaps and scents in general. It's a lovely honey and toffee scented deliciousness. The scent lingers and the moisturized feeling lasts all day. My skin feel so super soft after. 

R&B Hair Treatment- This is one of my favorite hair products, literally of all time. It's magical. I use it on my ends multiple times a day and it's so moisturizing and tames my frizz/flyaways. It smells like a bunch of bay leaves which constantly makes people ask why my hair smells so good.
Dragon's Egg Bath Bomb- This makes me loooove baths all over again. (Okay, I never stopped loving them.) It's a citrus, lemony, fruity magical scent. It's also a super fizzy, crackly fun bath bomb that changes colors within layers leaving your water orange and glittery! So much fun. 

No Drought Dry Shampoo- I'm notorious for going 2 or 3 days at least without washing my hair and always use baby powder as a quick fix to absorb oil from my scalp. Blair (Juicystar07) recommended this new powder dry shampoo because it works wonders without the white residue! Beware it's not only a little pricey, but it's definitely a stronger lemony type scent. A positive - it will last a long time because a little goes a long way! 

Cupcake Fresh Face Mask- I talked about this in my Friday Favorites and I picked up another pot because the shelf life is only 3 weeks. I'm happy to say I'm still in love. (No link to the product because it can only be purchased in stores because it needs to be refrigerated!)

It's Raining Men Shower Gel- This is the shower gel version of Honey I Washed the Kids, so it smells just as fabulous!! A little bit of this shower gel goes a long long way, so for me the travel size is enough for awhile!

I'm glad I was able to share my LUSH goodies from my latest trip! Look out for a full post on my favorite LUSH must haves!! Leave me recommendations on your favorites in the comments too!

  1. LUSH is at the top of my must-try list! I was browsing around their site & saw the gift packages... which do you recommend I get my Little for a summer gift?

    1. Hey love! The gift sets are an absolutely phenomenal value, so I definitely recommend those. I think it definitely depends on what sorts of products she uses. Does she take baths or showers? It also depends on how much you want to spend because there is such a variety of price points available. My favorite sets are Hello Gorgeous, Lovely Day, Buttercup (because it has two of my favorite products), and Wild Child.
