My First Lush(UK) Haul

My first Lush order from UK arrived today. I am so excited. It took less than 7 business days from UK to Canada, which I think is super fast delivery. I have placed orders from US and they come in more than 10 business days. Considering how much closer US is to Canada, I am sometimes disappointed in the delivery times. 


My first online order was not a huge one. I just want to make sure I am taking it slowly into the Lush world and enjoy all the products in a timely fashion. 


Very well-packed





My goodies: 
Rub Rub Rub(buy here)
Ocean Salt(buy here)
You've been Mangoed (buy here)
Catastophe Cosmetic (buy here)
MMM Melting Marshmallow Moment (buy here)
Aqua Mirabilis Body Butter (buy here) in Body Butter Tin (buy here)

I have tried samples of Rub Rub Rub(body exfoliate) and Ocean Salt(facial exfoliate). They are amazing and smell amazing. Not a fruity kind of scent but a very refreshing wake-you-up kind of scent. 

I was a bit worried about buying Catastophe Cosmetic (blueberries facial mask) online as you never know the Canadian weather in September. It can be hot or it can be mildly cool. As it is a fresh facial mask, I don't want it to melt in the hot weather. I went to pick up my mail within an hour of my mailman's regular delivery time. It is not all liquidly but started to melt a bit. I put the container in the fridge right away so I think it should be ok.

I sniffed the You've been Mangoed soap in the store when I was in Toronto. Love mango and the scent is very fresh. Perfect for those mornings when your eyes are still half shut in the shower. 

I got a couple of bath melts when I was in the store. As I have mentioned in my previous posts, I am not a bath person. Actually don't recall the last time I took a bath. Maybe when I was a toddler?! To my surprise, I took a couple of baths already in the past 2 weeks and thoroughly enjoyed them. I think it is going to be my treat to myself when I feel overly tired and stressed. What a nice way to relax in a bathtub in your own home! 

I want to try the Body butter and read the review that body butter will melt easily in the shower. So got the body butter tin for it. The Aqua Mirabilis body butter is not a scent that I would usually go for. It is not fruity. It has more of a earthy scent. I decided to go with that as I now use the Sweet Pie or the Whoosh shower jelly in the morning. Use Rub Rub Rub every other day. I don't want a whole lot of scents going on and I put perfume on occasionally. So went for this earthy, neutral scent to balance things out.

I am so excited to try out all my goodies. I am sure I will place orders once I use up most of my items and highly recommend to buy them online.

    1. I don't know how many times I walked by the store in the mall before. But after reading so many good reviews about the products, decided to go in one time. But I was totally overwhelmed by the great variety. I was lost in there. So the next time I went in, I did some homework on what I want to try first and went for those. Now I'm hooked. You should definitely go visit the store and sniff the beautiful scents one day!

  2. Rub rub rub is one of my favourites! I wasn't a big fan of Aqua Mirabilis, I just felt like i'd just come out of the sea and rolled in the sand everytime I used it! haha.

    Hope you enjoy your goodies! I love Lush!

    1. I wouldn't usually go for scent like Aqua Mirabilis. Not a scent I would go for. But I want to try some earthy scent for a change. I am excited to try my bath bomb and the facial mask this weekend :)

    1. I just opened my Catastophe cosmetic and it smells delicious. I already warned my hubby that I got cosmetic in the fridge so don't eat it!

      Thanks for following, following you back:)

  5. great haul! I wouldn't recommend buying fresh face masks from the UK though- they're supposed to be consistently refrigerated because they're all natural. Bacteria can easily grow on them if they're room temperature or warmer so you should really only buy them in-store in the future!

    1. I won't buy face masks online anymore. Not that my tub is bad or anything but I don't want to risk getting the product contaminated. I am actually surprised that they will ship to me. The Canadian website won't ship that.

    1. A lot of people are not big fan of Aqua Mirabilis. But to me, even though I love fruity and sweet scents, Aqua Mirabilis still smells very nice. Scent like almond/hazelnut to me.
