Lush Haul

Today is a very good day. Summer is here, the sun is shining and MURRAY HAS WON WIMBLEDON!!! Hurrahhh!! I thought I would make this day even brighter by writing one of my favourite posts, a Lush haul. After popping into Lush for a little *ahem browse*, I picked up a few old favourites and a couple of new purchases.

First in my basket is the Rose Jam Bubble Bar, a repeat purchase. This bar has a heavenly rose scent, identical to the Ro's Argan Body Conditioner (another repeat purchase!). To use you split the bar in two (for twice the use), and crumble it under warm, running water to produce bountiful bubbles! This turn the water a milky, baby pink and doesn't stain the bath! This contains geranium oil to balance the skin, and coconut oil and shea butter to leave your skin soft and smooth.

I also bought another bubble bar, The Comforter, which is a blackcurrant scented bright pink bar. This product is a bit of a Lush cult buy, I have heard about it on numerous blogs so decided I had to give it a go. It is double the size of a normal bubble bar, meaning you can get a double the baths out of it. The blackcurrant scent is slightly too overpowering for me, but I'm still looking forward to trying it out and having lots of bubble filled baths.

Next up is Twilight, which holds the title of my favourite bathtime Lush product. It has a lovely lavender scent,  which soothes my body and mind and always makes me feel ready for bed. Lush describe it as a "gentle, reassuring hug for the bath to transform you from worn out to warm and fuzzy"  and I think this is the perfect description. This is visually stunning, starting out with a pink and white foam, exploding out into a sunburst, before you reach the blue, glittery surprise in the middle.

I also bought another bath bomb, Tisty Tosty, which is a heart shaped delight that contains seven rosebuds. Again the overriding scent is rose, but there are also hints of geranium and jasmine. This is a very simple bubble bar, that has no colour, no fizz and the scent is subtle. This is the perfect product to use when you just want something easy and hassle free to throw in the bath and the rosebuds are a really cute touch.

Moving on to shower products, I bought the Sweetie Pie Shower Jelly. I have tried their other jelly before, Whoosh, and loved it so wanted to give this one a go. This products lives up to its name and is seriously sweet. It has a strong cherry scent and also contains coconut, vanilla, fresh strawberries and carrageen seaweed which softens the skin. These are multi-purpose products and you can use them on the body, hair and scalp, which makes them a great holiday purchase. It also contains glitter which apparently leaves a subtle hint of shimmer on the skin, perfect for summer.

On the recommendation of the shop attendant, who on a side-note are always in a delight in Lush, I got the Sultana of Soaps. So called due to the dried sultanas, cranberries and apricots it contains. I have quite dry skin on my body and this creamy, moisturising soap is supposed to be great for dry patches. The moisturising properties are from the olibanum oil, rapeseed oil and coconut oil in the soap.

Finally I bought the No Drought Dry Shampoo. I am an avid user of dry shampoos, as I don't like to wash my hair every day, and am always keen to try new ones out.  I have never used a dry shampoo in powder format before, but after a little play I think I have mastered it. You can either puff this directly onto your hair or into your hands and then work through. I like to puff this directly into my hair, then run my fingers through to spread it out before brushing through the remainder of the product. Usually I don't like the scents of dry shampoos, but this has a lovely, fresh grapefruit and lime scent. With festival season coming up I think this is a must-have purchase.
