If you read my “About Me” section, then you know that I also plan on writing blogs about cosmetics. Well, this is going to be my first post about cosmetics! I just recently made my first purchase from Lush.
If you’re not familiar with Lush, I’ll give you a little bit of information. They do fresh, handmade cosmetics. They even invent their own products & fragrances. They make them fresh, by hand, & use little or no preservatives, little packaging, & they only use vegetarian ingredients. They fight animal testing, which is wonderful. Being from a small town in Louisiana, we unfortunately don’t have one of their stores, but I was able to order from their website. Being that it was my first time ordering, I wasn’t too sure what I should order so I based a lot of my purchase on the reviews that the website offers. I ordered a face mask, a bath bomb, a bubble bar, & a steam tab. They also sent me a complimentary hand soap, which I think was very sweet of them.
First of all, I was pleasantly surprised with the way everything smelled. Sometimes it’s hard to make choices online when there’s no way of knowing how something will smell. Luckily, everything smelled wonderful. I’ll start by talking about the bath bomb that I purchased. I chose the “butterball”, & it was definitely an excellent choice.
Not only does it smell fantastic, but it’s also ridiculously moisturizing. It’s so moisturizing that I didn’t even have to put lotion on once I got out of the tub, which was nice. The fizzing that takes place when it’s dropped in the water is pretty fun to watch as well lol. The smell is so great that our bathroom ended up smelling like it for the rest of the night, & so did my skin. This is definitely going on my “to be re-purchased” list!
The next thing I purchased was the “Sunny Side” bubble bar! Omgsh, y’all. This one was great. I mean, look at it!
It’s so sparkly & fun. It also smells A-MAZING. You can’t help but smile when using this bubble bar. I LOVE citrus smells, & this one is orange, tangerine, & lemon so this one was right up my alley. The bubbles were, of course, awesome. I’ve never gotten that amount of bubbles when using other products. Also, I only used half of it. So I could about imagine how awesome the bubbles would be if you used the whole thing. Not only does it smell great & give you awesome bubbles, but listen to this…. It gives you sparkly gold water!! That’s right. How fun is that?! I will say that I DID have to clean the tub really quick when I was done, because some of the gold was left. It came off super easy though so it shouldn’t be a problem.
Next is the steam tab that I purchased. I decided to purchase this, because I was getting over a pretty serious cold at the time.
I thought, what better way to feel better than a tea tree oil tab that releases steam into my shower? Not only that, but it’s suppose to help calm & clear your skin. I actually ended up not using it in the shower. I filled the sink up with warm water, & put my face over the sink once I dropped it in. This was the only product that just didn’t work for me. I’m not sure if I did it wrong, or if I just got a dud, but I didn’t get any steam. It smelled good, but that was about it.
& finally, the face mask that I ordered.
This mask was actually recommended to me by several people, which is why I decided to purchase it. First off, I was blown away by how amazing it smells. It smells very minty, of course. Lush’s website indicates that it’s technically a facial wash, but the majority of people use it as a face mask. A friend of mine suggested that I keep it in the fridge, because it would feel even more refreshing on my face if I kept it in there. Boy, was she right. It was almost overpowering, but not quite. The feeling of it on my skin was definitely intense. It felt so luxurious & refreshing. My skin felt AMAZING when I was done. I don’t think my skin has ever felt so soft. This is going to be repurchased by me over & over again. Also, I ordered the smallest size so that I could try it out before I spent too much money. The smaller size is still a great purchase, because it doesn’t take much, so it’ll last me a while.
I hope that this post helps you if you were interested in making a purchase at Lush! I’m sure I don’t need to tell you, but just in case – All of these products were purchased with my own money. Lush didn’t influence this post in any way. I’m sure my blog is too new for them to really care about asking me to post things in their favor lol. So, all in all, I had an amazing experience with my first purchase from Lush. If you decide to make a purchase from them, I hope you have as awesome an experience as me!
