Did you know that my waxy bloggy friends are evil enablers? This time is was Lush they twisted my arm and shoved my face into. I've had a Lush fascination for years. Actually, I think the fascination is more with the people who love Lush. The prices are so ungodly high in this cheap person's eyes. Yet there are so many people who just love and swear by Lush products. I don't know that I'll ever get to the point of being a regular Lush shopper, but maybe I can learn to treat myself once in a while. Since I had some Christmas money to spend, why not start teaching myself that now?
This was the first, and smallest, of three orders I placed recently.
So let's take a look at what I got from the US website.
This is the Mmmelting Marshmallow Moment luxury bath melt. The website says it's part bath melt, part bath bomb. I can't really find any scent description, but to me it smells something like strawberry bubble gum. (3.5 oz., $7.95)
I got a Butterball bath bomb because it seemed simple and safe for a Lush noob like me. It has a light vanilla scent. (3.1 oz., $4.95)
This is the Creamy Candy bubble bar. The website says it smells like vanilla and cotton candy. It's not as sweet as the other two products, and there seems to be a faint almost rubbery scent to it. I hope it doesn't smell like rubber in the tub. (3.5 oz., $7.60)
I also received this free .6 oz. sample of Sandstone soap. The site says it is a 'Brazilian cocktail soap for cleansing, exfoliating, and toning.' It is very soft and has a very perky scent. Citrus, perhaps? Almost zesty or effervescent? It's very bright and energizing, whatever it is.
That's my little noobie haul. I chose one of each of the three big bath products (a melt, a bomb, and a bubble bar) to see if I prefer any more than others. Now I just have to make myself USE the dang things! I've had a few Lush products in the past and always ended up giving them away because I just never get around to using them. I'm not a bath soaker. I'm a shower and get going in the morning girl. Our bathroom is tiny, our tub is small, and just not an inviting place to lounge around in luxury. It's going to take some effort on my part to hopefully change this attitude.
So tell me, all you Lush experts, how much of these bad boys am I supposed to use at a time. I've heard many people say they chop these things up. We have hard water, if that matters. And like I said, our tub is small. Any advice is appreciated! lol
What are some of your Lush must-haves?
