LUSH Haul and Mini-Reviews: Bigger, Longer, Lusher!


I'm unreasonably addicted to Lush products. During my Melbourne trip in January, I visited both the Melbourne Central and Swanston Street stores, and bought heavily from each. But it's totally OK, you guys, because nearly everything I bought was half price! YAY! Got to love the post-Christmas sales. Having said that, this is my absolute last Lush haul. Because this shit is getting ridiculous. 

I asked for samples with my purchases, and both times the Sales staff were happy to include a few freebies. So don't forget to request free samples (especially if you're getting a lot of products - you deserve it)!


Entire Lush Haul

Free Samples :)
Above (top to bottom):
Free Sample - Fresh Farmacy Cleanser
Free Sample - Angels On Bare Skin Cleanser
Free Sample - Fair Trade Foot Lotion

Loving the Fresh Farmacy (correct spelling!) Cleanser bar; it's calming, soothing and great if you tend to break out. Angels On Bare Skin Cleanser was a bit disappointing for me; I found it difficult to use and didn't really like the smell of it. The Fair Trade Foot Lotion is pink but it smells minty! It's quite thick and fun to use for some reason. The minty smell is delicious.

Happy Hippy Hair and Body Gel
Ponche Shower Gel

Happy Hippy has a very subtle, mild grapefruit fragrance that I'm loving. Ponche (Limited Edition) with orange and tequila is bright in colour and strong in fragrance. It's fun and daring.


Above:
Whoosh Shower Jelly

This jelly has the most insanely fabulous uplifting lemon, lime and rosemary fragrance! It's a bit hard to use though as it's so easy to drop the bit you pulled off on the shower floor.


Above:
Sweet Lips Lip Scrub

Packed to the brim, this sweet chocolate-flavoured sugar scrub is certainly addictive, although I don't know how essential it is. Despite the delicious taste, I'll be limiting my use to once a week in case I rub my lips right off my face!


Above (left to right):
Orange Blossom Solid Gorilla Perfume
Vanillary Solid Gorilla Perfume

Quite a heady fusion of orange blossom and neroli, Orange Blossom solid perfume unfortunately gives me a headache. Vanillary, on the other hand, is subtle and non-offensive. Great for throwing in my handbag!


Above (left to right):
Santa's Sack Bubble Bar
Captain Bubblebeard Bubble Bar

I haven't used these yet, but hooray for half price. Can't wait to try them!


Above (left to right):
Magic Wand Bubble Bar
Melting Snow Man Luxury Bath Melt

Both still untouched. Really need to take more baths so I can take all these goodies for a test run!


Above (left to right):
Cinders Bath Ballistic
Geo Phyzz Mini Bath Ballistic

Haven't tried these yet!


Above (left to right):
Party Popper Bath Ballistic
Fizzbanger Bath Ballistic

I broke off half of the blue section of the Party Popper to add to my son's bath as we had run out of bubblebath, and it made the water go a lovely light blue! Can't wait to try Fizzbanger because according to their site, it's 'a toffee-apple for your bath'. Oh yeah!


Above (left to right):
Vanilla Fountain Bath Ballistic
So White Bath Ballistic

Yet to use!


Above (left to right):
Rock Star Soap
The Godmother Soap

Rock Star is an extremely sweet smelling fun pink soap. Great lather, but sometimes the fragrance is almost too sweet for me. The Godmother was recommended to my by the Sales lady when Snow Fairy Shower Gel was sold out, as it's the product that most closely resembles this sought-after gel. Apparently, The Godmother is like Snow Fairy, but in solid form. I love this soap! It smells beautiful; sweet but not overpowering, feminine, divine. It's a happy smell!


Above (left to right):
Sexy Peel Soap
13 (Unlucky For Dirt) Soap

I seriously LOVE Sexy Peel soap! I'm a big fan of citrus, and this lemon, grapefruit and lime soap is fresh, zingy, refreshing and uplifting, complete with little fruity bits in it, great if you love that slightly scratchy feeling of a not-quite-exfoliant-but-more-than-a-smooth-soap. 13, on the other hand, is unlucky for me. I find the fragrance to be strong and unpleasant. But that's just me! You may love it.

  1. I love Lush bubble bars, I brought 4 candy canes in the sale and am down to my last one. You're brave pairing their solid perfumes with Aussie heat, if mine go within 4 foot of a radiator they melt.

  5. I love LUSH! I think $7 is extremely indulgent for a bath but I just love it so much that I don't mind. I am jealous of your haul and half price!!
