Another Lush Haul

Ever since I got my hands on my first Lush product, I knew that I would be buying a lot from then on. I was the type of person who do not splurge on bath products. I had been using Dove body wash for the longest time and was happy with it. Spending money on bath products is new to me.  But then if I could splurge on beauty and clothing items, why not on bath products to really pamper myself?

I was not a bath person, always a shower gal. I didn't get a lot of bath products on my first few orders as I did not know how often I would find time to take a bath at night. But let me tell you, when you come home from a stressful day and nothing beats it to have a long, relaxing hot bath with Lush products. That is something I really start to enjoy, especially with the cooler weather. 

I am out of the Lush fresh face masks and I know I will have to pay a visit to Lush. Just happened to be on the day of my visit to the first store at Markville mall, they are out of the masks I want to try. Instead, I got bath bombs. 



My first bath bomb - Fizzbanger 

My bathtub at home is not a huge one and I only used half of this and it is enough. Good that I watched some videos on youtube as to how to split the bath bomb in half. Using a screwdriver and a hammer makes it easy. If I hadn't watched the videos, I would probably have attempted to cut it with a sharp knife and with not much luck doing the job. 


Rose Jam Bubbleroon

I have used Yuzu and coco bubbleroon and that has been my favorite so far. It is a bubble bar and it is very easy to split in half and crumble under running water. Of the few bubble bars I have tried so far, the bubbleroon has been the most moisturizing. So I'm excited to try the rose jam bubbleroon. Love the rose scent.




2 of the Green bubbleroons

I have tried this before and the scent of this is very refreshing. The sales associate said to try the Grass shower gel if I love the Green bubbleroon. I sniffed it at the store and yes, it does smell exactly like grass and I am not sure if I like the scent in the shower gel. 


Yuzu & Coco bubbleroon

This is by far my favorite bubble bar. If you like citrus, orange, coconut scent, this one is calling for you. 


Aqua Mirablis butter

When I got this from my last online order, I wasn't too sure if I would like the scent as I read that not a lot of people are fans of the scent. I love the scent. Exactly as described, almond and cocoa. Very moisturizing as it is a body butter. But it got some texture in it so great for exfoliating and yet gentle enough for everyday use. I am getting another one for my shower in my Toronto home. Definitely have to get the body butter tin as it melt on contact with water.


Since the store at the Markville mall was out of Love Lettuce fresh face mask, I went to the other store at Upper Canada Mall the next day.

Butterball

This is one of the smaller bath bombs and I think I would just use the whole one in one bath. Smell so buttery and full of vanilla. 



Honey B bath bomb

I love combination of honey, lemon and orange. Excited to try this out.

The sales associate told me some bath bombs are easier to break in halves than others. So I made sure the ones I got are easy enough to break. I wanted to try the Sex Bomb as so many rave about it. Maybe next time. 



Lemony Flutter

A cuticle butter which smell absolutely amazing. I don't have particularly dry cuticles. But the winter is approaching and my hands are so dry. This one is very rich in texture but not greasy as Vaseline. Fast absorbing, which I like the most. 


I got a couple of samples of their hand cream: Handy Gurugu and Helping Hands. Both feel very rich when I tested in the store. I want to try them before I decide which one I like better. Also got a sample of Mask of Magnamity. The sales associate recommended this to me as I told her that I don't have a Lush store near me. As much as I love the fresh face mask, it would be hard for me to get at times. She recommended this as this has a much longer shelf life. Smell very minty and refreshing. 


Catastrophe Cosmetic & Love Lettuce

I used up my Catastrophe Cosmetic a couple of weeks ago and was so eager to come to town to get some more. My last one was ordered from UK website. I guess with the approaching winter months, I could place orders on the UK website. They have to be used up usually within 3 weeks. I got my last order within 4 or 5 business days so left me plenty of time to use up. I have asked a few sales associates if I could freeze the fresh face mask. I get different responses. Some say yes and some say with it frozen, some ingredients may be broken down and may not have the intended results. Have you freeze your Lush fresh face masks? Do you recommend it?
