I’m a bit obsessed with Lush. Have been since 2003, when my eldest sister posted me a bunch of Lush body glitter melts when she was studying at Oxford. New Zealand didn’t have Lush back then, but now my local mall has a store and it is one of my favourite places there. The scents wafting out draw me like a seductive (invisible) mist. Or something. I want to keep track of which ones I’ve tried and loved, so here are my Lush Favourites.
Let’s start with bath stuff, which is probably my most favourite category. Floating Island bath melt – (pictured above, right) makes my skin feel soft and smooth, and I only use half per bath! Avobath bath bomb – a lemongrass scented delight. Butterball bath bomb – this smells delish, but the best part is the cocoa butter bits in it melt into the water and leave my skin so freaking soft. Honeybee bath bomb – (pictured above, left) might just be my most-loved of the bunch, caramel scented and kinda divine. The Dragon’s Egg bath bomb is a fun one, and smells so, so good. I just like all the bits, and ohmygosh, yes! Rose Queen bath bomb – I love rose so very much and this makes the water a gorgeous pink with actual flower petals in it. Sex Bomb bath bomb – another fresh scented one, gorgeous colours, and the flower in the center is super fun to play with. Blue Skies and Fluffy White Clouds bubble bar – (pictured above, center) I love a good bubble bath and this bar is fantastic. I only need to use about a quarter per bath.
For the shower, I like the Snowman shower jelly, which is not a permanent product and was released last year for Christmas. I hope it will be back because it smells amazing. Apparently it shares its scent with Carrot Soap, which I’m not sure we get here in New Zealand, and the Celebrate Body Lotion (not currently listed in the NZ website).
When it comes to face products, I do love a good mask. Cupcake fresh face mask – a chocolatey, cakey scented one for oily and teenage skin. Cosmetic Warrior fresh face mask – the one for when I have irritated, spotty skin. Bubblegum lip scrub – fruity bubblegum scent and flavour. Latte lip tint – a nice bronze tint with coffee and vanilla scent and flavour.
For the rest, I like Lemony Flutter Cuticle Butter, a lemon scented rich butter for cuticles (I use it all over my hands).
Clearly I have a thing for bath bombs! I must branch out and try other things, so do let me know what you love so I can get ideas. 🙂
