May Lush Haul

Before we get started I just want to apologise for me being off the blogging radar for a little bit. My exams start on Monday so I've been revising like a crazy person. This irregular blogging pattern is likely to continue for the next month or so until all my exams are done and dusted but after that, I'm free to blog till my hearts content.

I do have a selection of beautiful bloggers who have been lovely enough to offer to guest post for me and from what I've read so far, they're oh so fabulous so I really think you're going to adore them. A post will be going up once a week starting on Wednesday so keep your eyes peeled.

Last Friday was my 'Celebration Day' at school to celebrate the end of five lovely years at my school. It was an amazing day that was filled with emotion and I'm not going to lie I did cry, even though I am staying on for sixth form. In the evening I popped into town to meet two of my friends and we did a bit of shopping and enjoyed a costa to celebrate the end of an era.

I 'accidently' popped into Lush and spent a fair amount buying some fabulous products. I managed to pick out a selection of products I haven't actually tried before which is actually really exciting.
Lets get going...


Firstly I picked up the "Sea Spray" hair mist. Now, I'm a huge fan of salt sprays so the minute I saw that Lush sold one, I was so happy. I'm yet to use it but I think this is going to be a product that I'll give a full review of at some point in the not so distant future so keep an eye out. This is what Lush say about the spray:

"Get that that beach hair look with this salty spray that gives a light hold and adds shine, leaving a neroli, orange flower, grapefruit and rosewood scent. We've used carrageenan, a seaweed extract, together with glycerine to hydrate the hair. Mineral-rich fine sea salt gives that volumised, beachy head look, counteracting the flattening effects of soft water and softens the skin on the scalp too."

"Sea Spray" is priced at £9.95 for a 100g bottle.


Next up I brought the "Let The Good Times Roll" cleanser. I tried a sample of this cleanser a while back and I absolutely fell in love so I don't know why it's taken so long for me to buy a full sized pot. It smells incredible - quite a bit like popcorn so almost good enough to eat. From what I can remember of when I used the sample, it left my skin feeling really soft without drying it out and it did an amazing job of removing all traces of makeup, dirt and impurities, leaving my skin feeling really refreshed. This is what Lush say about the cleanser:

"This face and body cleanser is a gentle treat for the skin, leaving you soft to the touch with a buttery popcorn fragrance. Maize flour and polenta gently exfoliate, whilst cinnamon powder stimulates and leaves you feeling fresh and revived, with beautifully soft skin. This gentle yet scrubby cleanser will soothe and soften your skin, giving it a natural glow."

"Let The Good Times Roll" is priced at £6.35 for a 100g pot or £15.88 for a 250g pot.


Now it's the turn of the "Ocean Salt" Face and Body Scrub. This is a product I've had my eye on for a little while so I'm so excited to try it out. It smells amazing - there's none of that horrible chemical smell you get with most face products. I think this is going to be another product I'll give you a proper review of at some point so again, keep an eye out. This is what Lush say about the scrub:

"Limes steeped in vodka, grapefruit and lashings of salt go into this invigorating face and body scrub. Sea salt is rich in minerals and is excellent for scrubbing away any dead skin. We also add rich, silky avocado butter, coconut oil and seaweed absolute to keep your skin soft, smooth and conditioned. If you feel you need a good scrub down, apply to dry skin and rub all over using circular motions, or for a more gentle buff, use on damp skin."

"Ocean Salt" is priced at £7.20 for a 120g pot or £13.25 for a 250g pot.


Next up we have the "Stepping Stone" Foot Scrub. This is a product that was recommended by one of the lovely members of staff in my local Lush and I'm so happy she pointed it out because I don't think I would have spotted it myself. It smells amazing; a lovely blend of lime, lemon and lemongrass and I'm so excited to try it out. It's also shaped like a foot - I thought that was pretty cool, I'm not going to lie. This is what Lush say about the scrub:

"A foot-shaped scrub to pumice away dead skin, while softening and deodorising. Break off a little and take this into the shower. As soon as it gets wet, the fizzing action and pumice means you can kiss goodbye to hard skin. You can also kiss goodbye to smelly feet as the antibacterial and uplifting lime, lemon and lemongrass oils take effect, which combat the microbes that cause foot odour. The addition of cocoa butter and organic jojoba oil stop feet from drying out and keep the skin supple."

"Stepping Stone" Foot Scrub is priced at £3.10 for a 60g scrub.


Finally, I picked up another product recommended by the Lush staff, the "Movis" Face Soap. I think this is a product that's fairly new to Lush but you'll have to check. This is a weird product, I'm not going to lie. It smells a little bit like bread, looks slightly like malt loaf and has a sort of squidgy consistency. This is definitely something I'm going to be reviewing for you all so again, keep an eye out. This is what Lush say about the face soap:

"Mo Constantine combined her love of baking with soap alchemy to create this wheaty face soap. This sweet smelling squidgy bar uses wholemeal bread to exfoliate and revive the skin, and wheatgerm oil, hop oil and Fair Trade organic cocoa butter to soften. Movis is free from animal fats, palm oil and petrochemicals."

"Movis" is priced at £4.50 for 100g, £11.25 for 250g and £22.50 for 500g.

Let me know if you want to see full reviews of these products and I'll make sure I do.Have you brought anything from Lush recently?

  3. I love Lush but haven't bought anything from there in such a long time! I got some stuff at Christmas but they were all gifts. My fave item is the Turkish Delight Shower Smoothie, but it's like £15/£16 so I only buy it now and again :)

  4. Wow awesome haul!! I've had my eye on the Ocean Salt for a little while too now! I think it was that blue colour that got my attention haha hope it's been working well :)
    I'm really liking the salt/messy-hair-look sprays as well, but didn't know about LUSH's, so that's cool! I like how tiny & compact it is - would be great for taking in a bag or something for touchups throughout the day!
