That Lovely Lush...
On Thursday I attended an invitation only event at the new Lush in Joondalup. This was very exciting for me because I absolutely love the Lush products and what they stand for: freshness of ingredients, environmentally friendly packaging, ethical buying and their strict stance on animal testing. Firstly I was treated to a gorgeous pampering on my arms using the Ocean salt Cleanser which smells like coconuts and vodka, the exfoliating and softening effects can still be felt days after the treatment. Then Dirty Springwash Showergel gave my arm a refreshed and cooling feeling, finishing off with a light sprinkle of the First Snow Sparkling Dust leaving me with the scent of Orange oil and a beautiful shimmer.
My little pamper, this is the Ocean Salt Cleanser
I got a few products and samples so I will tell you about them, in no particular order (because they are all amazing!)
Ocean Salt Cleanser: I used this on my face tonight and I love the gentle scrub on my skin, it doesn't feel abrasive and it has a lovely creamy base when water is added. Did I mention that it smells fantastic too?
First Snow Sparkling Dust: This dust leaves A gorgeous white iridescent effect when lightly applied. I plan to use this on my collarbone and cheekbones when I go out to a special occasion.
Celebrate Body Lotion: This is a newbie to me. It smells the same as the First Snow Sparkling Dust so I think it would be great to layer so that the scent lasts all day (or night). A little heavier than a lotion but not quiet as thick as a body butter but is wonderfully moisturising just the same.
R&B Hair Moisturiser: Another newbie to me but I was told this is a cult favourite. Supposed to be softening to the hair and rebalance the scalp. I'm eager to give this a try and see what all the fuss is about, Ill be sure to let you know what I think.
Fair Trade Foot Lotion: This lotion is so cooling it makes my feet feel like they have been sitting in the fridge. Perfect for cooling off hot and bothered feet in Summer. And it's PINK!
Hsuan Wen Hua Hair Moisturiser: Wow! I used this as soon as I returned from the event and I may have to go back and purchase some. It made my hair feel so clean, so soft and so not frizzy. This is a pre-wash treatment, slap it on your hair, wait 20 mins then shampoo and condition like normal. I felt a significant difference on shine to my hair and I love it. Highly recommended.
Ro's Argan Body Conditioner: The lady who helped me practically threw this at me and said I have GOT to try this. I am very glad she did. I am a bit obsessive about hydrating my skin, I simply MUST moisturise or my skin feels dry and itchy all day. I used this tonight and I love how I can use this body conditioner in the shower, wait a minute , rinse it off and that's it. So wonderfully convenient. I love the 'just rose' smell to it as well because I love anything floral.
Sea Spray Hair Mist: Sea Spray seems to be the only hair product I use other than shampoo and conditioner. I think I just like the idea of having that beautiful beach tousled hair without actually getting sand all over me. I still have a tiny bit of salt spray left to use from another brand but I am really looking forward to trying this.
Lovely Jubblies Breast Cream: I bought a full size of this because after sampling it a year ago it has been on my wish list for a while. I love the unique scent of rose, lemongrass and ylang ylang that this buttery cream has. This cream is meant to tighten and firm the skin in the chest area which is perfect for me because I have been breast feeing for approximately 18 months now and I need to start looking after that area now.
Gorgeous Facial Moisturiser: Another item that has been on my wishlist for a couple of years and I have finally got it! I sampled this a while ago and my skin looks glowing afterwards. This moisturiser is amazing! It smells incredible, is as light as a feather and a little goes a long way. I feel like I have walked out of a day spa every time I use this. It was worth the wait!
It Started With A Kiss Lip Tint: I wore this today and I really like how I can apply the colour in a subtle tint or layer it on to make it look a lot brighter. This is kind of like a rosy pink with a slight shimmery finish. This creamy tint smells like red apples and white chocolate. This is something I will use quickly and want to repurchase.
The Olive Branch Shower Gel: I love this shower gel, it has quiet an earthy scent but its not overpowering. I have been using this type of gel for a few months so I am glad that I got a top up because I am not ready to change yet.
Atomic Toothy Tabs: If you have been reading my blog for a while you would know how much I enjoy the toothy tabs. It's so nice to use a toothpaste that is not full of chemicals and doesn't test on animals. Atomic is my husbands favourite flavour, I also love the floral flavour of Chou Chou- I Love You Toothy Tabs.
Tiny Hands: This is a solid hand moisturiser. I just rub it between my hands and the buttery bar melts a layer onto my skin. Because it is so thick it takes a few minutes to properly soak into my skin, so I use this straight before I go to bed. And of course this smells really nice, "pleasant' is the best way I can describe the combination of Vanilla, Chamomile and Marigold in this deeply moisturising bar.
Rose Jam Bubbleroon Bubble Bar: This bubble bar smells like a candy musk stick to me. It's Kind of sweet, kind of floral but very, very pink. I actually get more enjoyment using the bubble bars in my daughters bath and watching her play in the bubbles, than sitting in the bath myself. So I hope she likes the smell too.
Blue Skies and Fluffy White Clouds Bubble Bar: I think this bubble bar looks so cool. It's a combination of light blue and white swirled into a round bar. I thought this smelt very soothing and I like to keep a bath bar similar to this when bub has had a fussy day and I want to give her a relaxing bath.
Dream Steam Steam Tabs: Oh.My. Goodness. I am so excited to try this, but I really want to wait until I get a Lush mask from handing in my 5 empty pots and do a proper pamper facial. I'm supposed to pop a bit into hot water and then hover my face over the steam, this will open my pores and clean all that dirt and oil out of my skin.
Shampoo Bar Tin: I am alternating between two of the Lush shampoo bars and they are getting kind of gross where I am storing them in my bathroom cupboard. I bought these tins so I can keep them in tip top condition.
So that's the massive amount of Lush that I have been so lucky to try, I hope you have enjoyed reading this! Is there any particular Lush Product you would like me to review in more detail even a product that's not here ?
