LUSH etc

So I posted a haul video for my Lush order and promised photos so here they are, my fresh face mask also arrived so I have included photos of that.

First of all are the Emotibombs (£1.91) which sit in the bottom of your shower. When the warm water hits them they fizz slowly and release essential oil vapours which rise up with the steam of your shower. I've tried the one with the cat on it which is called Up the Wooden Hill and it is heaven! I used a really small piece because I want to make it last, it was about the size of a MAC eyeshadow pot. I didn't put it near the plug-hole, I sat it on the rubber mat that I stand on so that it wouldn't slip away and it stayed put. Next time I will use a bigger piece though as it only lasted for a few minutes. If you put the whole thing in there I bet it would be really amazing! They are quite cheap so I wouldn't mind doing that once a week or so.

Next is the Almond & Coconut Smoothie (£6.80), and to be honest I'm disappointed with the scent of this one. I love the formulation but the scent is too mild, I like strong scents that linger on my skin. With this one I feel that I can still smell the base formula and that the added scent doesn't add anything. I am going to give this to my sister if she likes's a shame but that's why it's always best to go to the actual store if you can. Next time I will!

This one is the Whoosh Shower Jelly (£2.25) and what you can't see here is that it's kind of folded up inside the tub, so when I took it out it was twice as long! It has a really strong scent and I LOVE it! I am so pleased, I will definitely get more of these next time. I like the look of the one called The Big Calm. I did try taking the whole piece and lathering it up like they show on the Lush website but it was really difficult to keep hold of, it was really slippery and I was scared of dropping it. I ended up taking a small piece and lathering up a scrunchie/loofah thingy with it (as advised by makeupbytiffanyd. It worked really well!

I got the Enzymion moisturiser (£11.74 but check the price of each moisturiser because they vary wildly...some are upwards of £30!) which I have had before. It's great for oily skin and absorbs really nicely. I love it!

I then got one of my favourites...a butter cream! This one is called Lemslip (£2.30) and smells edible! It's so smooth and melts gorgeously on your skin. You use it in the shower to wash with and rub it on wet skin...heavenly! It leaves you soft and smelling gorgeous. This one kind of looks like a slice of cheesecake but some of the others look like huge wedges of cake complete with frosting!

And finally the one that I couldn't show you in my video because it hadn't arrived! My fresh face-mask! Brazened Honey (£6.31) which is so fresh that it only lasts for 3 weeks and has to be kept refrigerated as it has no preservitives in it. I never use mine all up so I will de-pot some of it for my sister.

So that concludes my Lush haul! If you have any questions at all just leave a comment or send me a message =)

  1. man....
    the emotibombs sound awesome.
    as well as whoosh shower jelly.
    they totally remind me of jello
    in general. haha.
    & oh man, the enzymion really
    interested me, considering that
    i have naturally oily skin.
    so its pretty much like a moisturizer,

  2. Ive never tried lush before :/ I know im so behind lol.
    Ive been looking a lot on the UK site. I hear its cheaper. They have an ibiza shampoo that is on there that I really want to try as well as honey I washed the kids soap. :) I travel a lot to Europe and I think of what got me excited is just the name of the shampoo it caught my eye. Im glad you post here as well as your youtube so I can see whats out there !!
