Impulse buy: Lush


Recently when I went to London, I found myself waiting for the train at Liverpool Street for 10 minutes. Rather than get on the train, I decided to quickly run in to Lush and see how much I could get in such a short amount of time. I ended up spending £10 exactly on two products – both ones I’d never tried before but heard good things from bloggers and friends.


Brightside; bubble bar (£4.50)
What Lush say:
Hop in the bath with one of these uplifting bubble bars. Sicilian mandarin, bergamot oil and tangerine essential oils to help you look on the bright side of life. Its jazzy bright colour will create magnificent orange bath water and the sunny citrus fragrance is sure to leave you jolly and refreshed.
What I say:
There is no bath better than a Lush bath and I absolutely love their bubble bars. I’ve only used this one once and I already think it’s my favourite – the colour and fragrance are so summery! Even though they cost £4.50, they last for ages as you cut off a little piece every bath time – it’s such an effective product. The orange smell isn’t artificial, like you get with some fruit-fragrance products and my bath actually reminded me of a Seville orange grove – lush indeed! It even leaves my skin soft.


Bubblegum; lip scrub (£5.50)
What Lush say:
Prep your lips with a buff and polish. Let the exfoliating caster sugar and softening jojoba oil scrub away dead skin and infuse moisture to rejuvenate your smile. Bubblegum lip scrub won’t leave any greasy residue, just a sweet candy taste that you’ll enjoy licking off.
What I say:
I love this product for the smell alone. The only way I can describe it is like Snow Fairy, sickly sweet like candy floss. This makes eating the sugar (’cos let’s face it, that’s all it is) from the pot very tempting. The texture is a bit like damp sand, a little strange but you soon get used to it – and you only need a small amount, I literally brush my finger along the top. I know it’s grim, as you’re technically removing dirt and dead skin, but I can’t help but lick it the excess off my lips. This product stays in my work bag, I can’t get enough of it; it’s the perfect base for lipstick or lacquer as well.
What are your favourite Lush products?
