The city that I lived in before didn’t have a Lush store anywhere near me so I was left drooling over their website and other bloggers’ review and haul posts. When we moved, I discovered that there’s a Lush right in our mall and I vowed that I would go in and try some bath products.
So this post just shows you what I got. It’s not a large haul by a long shot–I only bought two items–but I’m super excited about them anyway. 😉
If you haven’t heard of Lush, they are a cosmetic store specializing in bath products like bath bombs (they’re famous for them!), shampoo, face masks, etc. They don’t test on animals, use recycled packaging, are vegetarian, and make all of their products by hand. They’re pretty spectacular and if you haven’t discovered them before, you’re welcome. 😉
The first thing that I got while in Lush was, obviously, a bath bomb. I searched for the perfect one because I had a limited amount of money and these puppies aren’t the cheapest things in the world. I settled on Big Blue because I absolutely love anything seaweed and it just sounded so refreshing. It has pieces of dried seaweed in it that are released when you drop it in the water. Seaweed has tons of nutrients in it which makes it great for your body–inside and out! It is also formulated with sea salt (which helps to detoxify), lemon oil, and lavender oil.
While I was perusing the store and trying to discover another exciting find, a store associate came over. We were standing in front of the hair products and she asked how my hair was. Well, since moving, my hair has just hated the water here. It leaves it dry and heavy–a problem I haven’t really had to deal with before. She recommended the Jason and the Argan Oil shampoo bar. First of all, a shampoo bar is shampoo but in solid form. This particular type has argan oil which is great for dry hair and is scented with lemon and rose. It smells amazing, you guys! To use, you wet your hair and the bar then swipe it over your hair a couple of times. It will lather as you massage your scalp and you just rinse it out. I followed with my favorite conditioner. I was so skeptical while using this in the shower the first time because it didn’t feel any different than before. But once I dried my hair, it was noticeably softer, smooth, hydrated, and so shiny I could see my reflection. (*May be a slight exaggeration about the shininess.)
Overall I was so happy with my purchases. I give both of them 4 pomegranates. The only reason they aren’t 5 is that I feel like they are a little pricey (especially the bath bomb), but I do understand that running a quality, eco-friendly business can cost more so that won’t keep me from visiting Lush again!
What are your favorites from Lush? I’d love to give something else a try!
