Free Lush Mask with the Pot Exchange Program!


Everyone loves a freebie!

This post is a bit of a Public Service Announcement, although I'm sure a lot of you are already well aware (hi fellow Lushies), that Lush runs a pot exchange program. If you take back five clean (empty!) pots or tubes, you can select a free fresh face mask! Look out for the text and exchange symbol on your pots, as shown in the above photo. Well after being too slack to blog my Empties for what feels like an eternity, I finally bit the bullet, cleaned five out and took them in last week. The funny thing is, I have so many Lush pots collected up I can probably get one or two more free masks! (Someone has a Lush addiction).

My 5 empty pots, snapped on the bus ride into town!

I took a photo of the empty pots on the bus trip into town, because I'm nothing if not prepared and totally organised. Isn't that where everyone takes their blog photos? Here's some one sentence reviews and/or links to where I've already reviewed said empty Lush products....


  • Cosmetic Warrior fresh face mask* reviewed here
  • Whoosh shower jelly, with its lime and grapefruit scents, is so refreshing, like an ocean breeze!
  • BB Seaweed fresh face mask* reviewed here
  • D'Fluff Strawberry Shaving Soap* reviewed here
  • Cupcake fresh face mask* reviewed here back in 2013 when my text was still pink!

I'd already tried quite a few Lush fresh face masks, however Ayesha grabbed my attention with the description

'spellbinding ingredients to smooth away wrinkles. Tightening, absorbent clays, deeply effective asparagus, vitamin rich fresh kiwi fruit, bewitching elderflower and witchhazel leave the skin radiant, relaxed and refreshed.'


Ayesha Fresh Face Mask!

I read some reviews of it on the Lush site saying it stunk like a mofo, but worked really well. If I can endure the constant farts of my male housemates, some pungent asparagus fumes are a walk in the park! Besides, I'm intrigued by the wrinkle-reducing claim. Hot tip (or cold tip!): store your Lush masks in the fridge and try to finish them within three weeks, due to the inclusion of such fresh, natural ingredients.

Rose Jam Bubbleroon, come to mumma.

I couldn't resist picking up this Rose Jam Bubbleroon whilst instore, since RoseJam shower gel is my equal favourite Lush shower gel ever (the other is Happy Hippy), but it's a Limited Edition and only available at Christmas time. Aaaah, the smell, I'm so in love!

  2. I love walking past the Lush store, it always smells fantastic but I have never actually bought anything! Shameful I know!! I currently have my eye on the Lush popcorn lip scrub, have you tried it before?

  8. I used to walk past lush on my commute and really miss it. Its also my goto for girly bday pressies. I haven't been there in ages so you've reminded me to get back there and smell the lush goodness. Such a great idea for a loyalty program too! Xx

  9. I don't mind a bit of lush but for me there must be something strong in their stores and I am afraid I have to walk past these days. It always looks amazing though!

    2. Yeah, that's so weird because I'm one of those people that get migraines from certain smells (usually floral) but for some reason Lush products never trigger headaches in me!

      Delete
  12. After reading your post I'm really wanting to go to Lush! I love all the scents that waft around in that shop!

  13. Well I'm not sure I could handle the stink of Ayesha, but you've got me with Whoosh Shower Jelly! I've never been too fussed about their products so far, but I do love reading reviews by Lushophiles xxx

    1. Ugh, I'm so addicted, Kat. The Whoosh smells so fresh and amazing!

  14. Wow I can't believe you had so many Lush pots! I don't even have 5! Though I'm bit of a Lush newbie. Any recommendations of Lush products for an oily face? :)

    1. The Tea Tree Toner is lovely, and the Ultra Bland Cleanser for something a bit different. If you look at the masks in store, the staff usually go through them with you and try them on your hand so you can see what suits your needs :)

  15. Lush looks and sounds so "delicious." Can you believe I've never shopped there!? Funny since you just left me a comment about not shopping at iHerb yet! I might get addicted if I go into a Lush store..

    1. Haha, yes, snap with the comments! I'm sure you would get addicted. Try it though!
