Thoughts on my Pre-Xmas Lush Haul!
It was around the start of December that I really got sick of boring supermarket soap, and wanted a bit of luxury and a sweet-smelling bathroom. I couldn't wait any longer (even though I knew the Lush Boxing Day sale was approaching) and put through a Lush order. My goals were to try products I'd never tried before and to get a few soaps and shower gels. Here's my haul!
* The Olive Branch shower gel
* Happy Hippy shower gel
* Tea Tree Water toner water
* Bohemian soap
* Baked Alaska Snowball soap
* Miranda soap
I'm finding The Olive Branch shower gel to be really subtle and mild, and I haven't really made up my mind about it! It has olive oil, vine leaves infusion and mandarins, and seems like it would be a great unisex product.
Happy Hippy shower gel is an old favourite of mine. I sensed a change and checked the website, only to learn that the 'lemon-to-rosy hue' may be different due to the pink grapefruits used changing in colour. Still, it's citrusy, fruity and a pleasure to use.
I bought the Tea Tree Water toner because my Lush Breath Of Fresh Air toner was nearly finished and I wanted to try something new. This is so refreshing to spritz on my face (especially on a hot Summer day), and I love that it's great for oily and spot prone types, because that's me.
Being a massive fan of zesty fragrances, I love this invigorating lemon Bohemian soap. It contains coconut, rapeseed and lemon oils and is awesome to wake me up during my morning shower. The fragrance makes me happy!
The wedge of Baked Alaska Snowball soap is so colourful and pretty! It smells strongly of lemon myrtle and ylang ylang oil and is fun to use. The shape is a little impractical though.
Disappointingly, my Miranda soap looked nothing like the promo photo on the Lush website! Mine was nearly entirely green, without the pretty red circle bits. Anyway, I liked the kiwi fruit based soap, except for the little black pips which sometimes scratched my skin. I pulled the black seeds out whenever they got scratchy.
Have you tried any of these? What's your favourite Lush product?
