Lush Haul from Lush UK

Have been doing good with controlling my splurges on Lush goodies. Now the warmer weather is here, I don't take as many hot bubble baths as I used to in the cold winter months so that helps.

I need a few basics from Lush and was contemplating on whether to place an online order from or After doing some calculations, decided to go with the UK website as it is much cheaper, even with the extra shipping fee.

Ocean Salt Facial Scrub
Tea Tree Water
The Olive Branch Shower Gel
Aqua Mirabilis Body Butter
and a small sample of Herbalism Cleanser

When I went home to Toronto earlier in the month, brought my beloved Tea Tree Water but left it there so I desperately needed to get another one. It has become my summer must have skincare product as my skin is oily combination and blemishes are prone to surface more in the hot weather.

This is my second tub of Ocean Salt facial scrub. It is a very good exfoliator. Some may find it to be a bit too coarse and harsh especially if they have sensitive skin. I don't have that problem and find it very effective in removing makeup residue an dead skin.

This is the smaller size(120g). My last tub lasted me a good 4 months. I used it probably 2 times a week. This is why I decided to go with the UK website rather than the Canadian website.

On the UK website, Ocean Salt comes in 2 sizes, 100g and 250g. I believe I picked the 100g £6.95. which equals to Canadian $10.83 approximately. On the Canadian website, Ocean Salt (120g) goes for $21.95, which is almost double the price.

Another must have is the Aqua Mirabilis. I am almost out of that. It is a very good body butter with excellent exfoliating properties. Perfect to rub those on underarms and legs for extra exfoliation before shaving.

The Olive Branch shower gel is a new product I am trying. I love their shower gel. It's Raining Men is my favorite and I love citrus scents. So it did not take me long to find this lemon, mandarine, orange scented shower gel in my shopping cart.  

Also got a small sample of the Herbalism Cleanser to try out. I have not tried it yet but it has a very earthy, herbal scent. It is a solid cleanser to gently exfoliate, remove grease and calm troubled skin. Excited to try this out as I need a stronger cleanser in the summer.
