Today I’m sharing my recent purchases from LUSH. Up until my recent move back to Chicago the closest LUSH store was over 140 miles! Now, I live within blocks from a location-dangerous! I have always been a fan of their masks and other face products, but had never really ventured into a lot of the bath and body products, which is kind of crazy considering they are known for their bath bombs and soaps. Anyways, now that I have moved and have a tub that deems worthy of taking a relaxing bath I decided it was time to try a bath bomb.
I had done a little research ahead of time (a.k.a. watching YouTube videos and searching the hashtag #bathart on instagram), and had a pretty good idea of what items I was interested in. In the end I chose the Sakura bath bomb, which is described as “A refreshing floral dip into springtime…with scents of mimosa and jasmine”. While I was in the bath section I came across the luxury bath oils. I admit that more often than not I’m too lazy to moisturize my entire body after showering, so I figured these would be fun and useful products to try. I picked Razzle Dazzle, described as “a berry relaxing blend of Persian lime oil, bergamot oil and violet leaf” it also includes shea butter, cocoa butter and jojoba oil. Beware-this one is easily transferred onto your hands (pink and sparkly nonetheless). The employee suggested I keep this one in the bag until I was ready to use it and then to drop the product directly out of the bag and into the tub. I should have listened-it can be a little messy! I also picked up You’ve been Mangoed simply because it smelled too good to resist (clearly I have no-self control).
Going in I knew that I wanted to pick up the Pumice Power Foot Soap. Its one of my absolute favorite products from LUSH. It gives instant results and leaves your feet feeling super smooth and refreshed. It is surprisingly gentle, much more so than an actual pumice stone, but with the same, if not better results. A definite must-have if you’ve been walking around in sandals all summer like me! I also received a sample of the Softy Foot Lotion. It has a wonderful sounding blend of essentials oils and seems like it would be perfect to use after the foot soap.
Last but not least, I grabbed the fresh face masks Ayesha. What really drew me to this particular mask was it’s description as “a blend of tightening and toning ingredients to refresh tired-looking skin”. The woman helping me told me this really shrank her pores for several days-B-I-N-G-O, I’m sold! In the past I have used the Cup O’Coffee for exfoliating and the Mask of Magnaminty when my skin is acting up, and I have been very pleased with both, but I am always looking for new products to try.
I can’t wait to use these products and report back with a review. At checkout I was informed that if you bring back five empty LUSH pots you get a free face mask. What an awesome incentive to recycle and reuse! Do you have any favorite LUSH products or items you’ve been wanting to try? Let me know in the comments below. Thanks for reading!
