Huge Lush Haul...Banning myself after this

Yes, I have done ANOTHER big Lush haul. It doesn't seem long since my last one. I do take baths 3-4 times a week. I thoroughly enjoy taking a hot relaxing bath at nite before bed. Lush bath products are certainly not cheap. I tell myself that constantly. I have tried other drug store brand bath products but they are not even close. 


All the products I got this time are bath products. Only one of them is a body butter.


I also got a Christmas gift set in this order as a gift. I picked this set as the receiver may take more showers than baths.  I got the Snow Fairy gift set which includes the snow fairy shower gel, a Shimmy Shimmy glitter bar and the Angel's Delight soap. 


I got the order from the North American Lush website. I believe I got a special on the shipping charge as I thought the shipping rate is by weight. I only paid $6 for shipping for this huge order.

Ok, let's get into what I got in this order: 


Top: Cinder Bath Bomb, Marzibain Bubble Bar
Bottom: Aqua Mirabillis Body Butter, another Marzibain Bubble Bar

These ones are re-purchases. I enjoy Cinder bath bomb so much. It is a smaller bath bomb which is the perfect size for one bath. I split the bigger size bomb into 2 usually and that requires a hammer and a screwdriver which is not as easy as it seems sometimes. Aqua Mirabillis body butter is my third body butter. The 2 Marzibain bubble bars are retro Christmas products and I love the Snowcake soap so much that I stocked up quite a bit on my last order. That would go perfect with this.


Top(from L to R): Golden Wonder Bath Bomb, Vanilla Fountain Bath Bomb, Ice Hotel Bubble Bar, Chirstmas Eve Bubble Bar
Bottom: North Pole Soap

The Golden Wonder bath bomb weighs heavy. There is a surprise in the middle when you shake it. It is going to be a treat for myself on Christmas day. The rest I believe are also limited Christmas products. North Pole soap is scented like cocoa and peppermint which I'm so excited about. 


Pop in the Bath Bubble Bar and MMM Melting Marshmallow Moment Bath Melt

I have been buying quite a bit of beauty and bath products in the last few months. It is so much fun to explore new products. But I am going to be put on a ban. I have accumulated a huge stack or pile to be exact that will last me for a while. I am putting this down in writing so that will help me in keeping my promise. I have also cancelled 2 more monthly subscription box service so I can use up my pile. The two I am keeping my subscriptions to are ipsy(myglam) and Topbox.

  1. I love Golden Wonder. Pop in the bath and MMM are also also awesome bath products. I would suggest cutting those in half and using for two baths if you're not already doing so.

    1. thanks for recommending to cut these in halves. I wasn't sure if I could cut the Golden Wonder as it seems like a brick and I wasn't going to attempt to cut it in half.

  5. So there's two lush stores within reasonable distance from my house. I've been dying to try up a few bath bombs or anything like that really. What do you recommend? It looks like you might have tried a bunch before.

    1. If you like sweet scents, I would recommend "Comforter" bubble bar. It is very big and you can break that into at least 4-5 chunks for each bath. Try one of their limited Christmas items, like Gingerbread house bubble bar or Cinder. They are very similar and scented like cinnamon and spice. Perfect for cold winter nites! Enjoy!

  12. Hi, between your blog & some vlogs I follow, I finally caved & ordered a mess of stuff from Lush, mostly based on yall's enthusiasm about the products There's no store near me so I picked items that had scents I like & got more + than - reviews. Hope that theory works, will find out soon enough.
    I dig an almond scent so I picked things like marziban. I also ordered Cinders, Golden Wonders, Butterball, a santa looking bath bomb thingy, the melty snowman thingy, some apple & honey scented bath bombs, more almond stuff that I can't recall. Pretty much anything that doesn't smell like patchouli or sickly-sweet stuff like bubble gum or cotton candy. LOL
    I also happened to notice a few posts back that you also liked the Anastasia brow duality. Isn't that stuff great? I stumbled across that awhile back & loved it instantly although I got the single-ended version that doesn't have the sparkly option - which is fine by me as I wouldn't use it anyways. Really does a super good job at lightening/highlighting without looking obvious.
    Anyways, just wanted to say I really enjoy your blog & your reviews!

    1. I'm so glad you got to try out Lush and Anastasia. Before I tried Lush, I couldn't understand what the rave is all about. But now that I have used their products and thoroughly enjoy them, I totally understand. They are pricey but it is worth it and going to be my treat. I just tried Golden Wonders and it is so amazing. Got gold glittery stars all over the bath water. Looking forward to hearing about your thoughts of the goodies.
