My LUSH Haul.


My very first haul of 2016 basically had to be from LUSH.
Using vouchers I received for Christmas (thanks, mum!) I picked up a few goodies I'd had my eye on for a while, as well as a few heat of the moment purchases that turned out to be fantastic little finds, and welcome additions to my supply.


I've never bothered with shaving creams because I'm lazy. I just use the shower gel I bought in there with me, but this is wonderful, and about 40x better than using a shower gel. It coats the area with a smooth, creamy layer that allows the razor to glide over the skin with ease, giving a smoother, closer shave. The soothing oils reduce irritation and redness caused by shaving and the moisturizing properties leave my skin feeling soft and smooth straight after use. 


This is too lovely on my dry and sensitive skin! It smells lovely - like breakfast and is incredibly moisturizing without breaking me out. Although slightly difficult to apply, it's soothing, nourishing, calming and leaves my face feeling super soft. The short shelf life is a shame but it gives me an excuse to pamper myself more often!

I finally took the plunge and picked up a 100g tub of Angels on Bare Skin, and it naturally, was the first thing I trialed. I must say, I was impressed. Sure, it's messy to use (as are most LUSH products) but a little mess is well worth the result, because when your beauty-ignorant boyfriend notices a difference in the smoothness of your skin, you know you're on to a winner. I don't feel it's as cleansing as a regular face wash so I use it after my normal nightly routine, but the exfoliating pieces do a wonderful job of gently scrubbing the skin clean of anything my first cleanse may have missed and it feels absolutely heavenly on my dry, sensitive skin! I've always felt dry and tight after a facial cleanse but this is the first and only product I've found that has not given me that sensation. Instead, my skin feels so smooth, soft and healthy.


This has the same blackcurrant scent as Sweetie Pie (mentioned below), only more subtle. I've used it once already and should get at least three more baths out of the one bar. It turns the water a lovely pinkish purple and creates the creamiest bubbles.

I got to try this bad boy at the Bloggers United meet I attended last year, so I know exactly what I'm in for when I do use it. It starts off a creamy white and fizzes to a glorious orange froth with golden glitter and has a subtle yet lovely fruity citrus scent.


Sweetie Pie Shower Jelly
I'm not going to lie, the concept of a shower jelly makes me squirm a little uncomfortably inside, but guys..the smell of this stuff. My God. It's like blackcurrant fruit pastilles and I can't even. Plus it's sparkly, how could I not? Just a small spoonful of this stuff lathers so luxuriously with a shower puff and apparently doubles as a shampoo of sorts. I could deal with my hair smelling like this all day. Could definitely deal.

I've raved about this shower gel about ninety-zillion times, most recently here, so we all know how I feel about this baby but as my bottle was almost finished, I couldn't help but pick up the 250mL offering. You just can't beat that fresh, citrus grapefruit scent in the morning, guys. Trust.

I shouldn't really include this because it was a free sample, BUT I just couldn't leave it out. The honey/toffee scent is so damn delicious and it's sooo much gentler on the skin than regular soap.


I'd say this particular haul was a raging success (good start to the year, I say). I am 100% happy with every single thing I picked up, which is a rare feat for me. I can see almost everything becoming products I repurchase over and over again.

  1. I love the Comforter bubble ball. Really all their bubble balls are my fave. I need to try to oatfix mask. I tried a different mask, but I didn't love it. My skin is very dry too.

  10. Mann, I feel your pain! LUSH has only somewhat recently been available to me in Australia. It seemed like everyone in the States were posting about this magical LUSH place and I was left out of the club aha. x
