Lush Haul

June 3, 2014

This month I’ve put myself on a 30 day spending ban, as I want to put a bit of extra  money into savings this month. I also did way too much shopping in May. Anyway todays haul was bought last month so it’s ok!

This was a bit of an accidental splurge in Lush as I hadn’t even planned to go in. I only ended up going because Fay wanted to pick something up, but once unleashed I went a little crazy! I absolutely love Lush products and pretty much everything I bought was a repurchase of products I’ve tried and loved in the past. So all of these come highly recommended.

Ultra Bland:

I used to use this product absolutely years ago as my full-time cleanser. For fans of traditional skincare Ultrabland is in fact a type of cold cream, which explains why I like it so much, I’m a die-hard cold cream fan. Like it’s yesteryear counterparts, Ultrabland will melt away your make-up, get all dirt from your face and leave it feeling clean and moisturised at the same time. I’m so glad I have this cleanser in my life again as it’s one of the best I’ve ever tried. To use this one you just need to rub it all over your face and wash off using a flannel or muslin cloth.

Tea Tree Toner Water:

Generally I have very clear skin, however every now and then I get the occasional break out, and this is the perfect product for keeping pesky blemishes at bay. This super fresh spritz is so refreshing on the skin and helps keep in clear and clean. I love everything about this product and use it after giving my face a really good clean and cleanse. Generally I spray it directly onto my skin although you can also apply it with cotton wool.

Angels on Bare Skin:

Another favourite of mine which I haven’t used in a while is Angels on Bare Skin. This gorgeous cleanser really has that natural hand-made feel which you get from Lush products. This product smells absolutely beautiful and is full of some of my favourite ingredients including lavender, rose and almonds. mixed with water and rubbed all over the skin this will leave you feeling fresh and clean and with nothing but natural ingredients and no preservatives it’s always been a winner for me.

Think Pink Bath Ballistic:

It would be wrong to go into lush without buying at least one crazy bath bomb. This time I treated myself to Think Pink. This super girlie bath bomb smells amazing and fills the bath with pretty heart confetti. At only £2.50 it’s one their cheaper options and I just love it!

Ickle Baby Bot Bath Ballistics:

I couldn’t leave the girls out of the fun so I picked up two Ickle baby Bot bath bombs for them. Jess used hers almost immediately and loved it, I’m saving Lila’s until I know she’s going to have a longer bath. This is perfect pre bedtime as it’s packed with soothing lavender to help little ones drift off into peaceful sleep.

Porridge Soap:

I’m a big fan of using oats in cosmetics as they are absolutely amazing for your skin, so when I spotted this I had to give it a try. Not only have they used oats but also fresh orange juice, so it’s like breakfast for the skin. This lovely soap is great for exfoliating and softening the skin and like all Lush products it smells beautiful.

Honey I Washed the Kids Soap:

Having not used soap for years in favour of shower gels and liquid soap, I’m having a bit of a soap rediscovery. As well as picking up the Porridge Soap I also get a small chunk of this honey scented soap. As well as containing lovely honey it also has Aloe Vera to care for the skin and Orange and Bergamot oils which make it smell beautiful.

Stepping Stone Foot Scrub:

With sandal season upon us it’s definitely time to start caring for our feet, this product not only looks adorable but also smells really lovely. The scrub is packed with pumice as well as lemongrass, lemon and lime oils. It deodorises and softens the feet. To use it you just break a little of and use it to clean the feet. I’m definitely going to re-buy this one as I absolutely loved it.

Chou Chou I Love You and Atomic Toothy Tabs:

I got samples of both of these products as I really wanted to give them a try. I’ve seen a couple of other bloggers mention how much they liked these so I thought it was worth a go. They are basically toothpaste in tablet form. You chew them up and then brush. These could take a little getting used to firstly because they feel a little different and also because they are not minty like normal toothpaste. They do however clean teeth so well and taste amazing that I think I’ll probably use these again. I’ve also read elsewhere that they are great for whitening the teeth too. Has anyone else tried these? I’d to know what you thought.

As always I want to say a big thank you to the amazing staff at the Wimbledon branch for the best customer service ever. One lovely lady kept Lila busy and entertained while I sniffed every single product in the shop, the other was on hand to answer all our questions. You really can’t beat the friendly and helpful service you get in Lush!

What are your favourite Lush products? What shall I buy once my 30 day spending ban is over?

    Ooohh, I can practically smell the heady, gorgeous scene of all these lush products through the screen. What a terrific haul! The stepping stone scrub really appeals to me as we head into strappy sandal season. Enjoy all your great new beauty products, dear gal.
