Lush Bargains

On boxing day the beauty world seemed to go a little crazy and my twitter feed was being blown up by people expressing their frustration at not being able to get onto the Lush website when the 50% off sale went live. It makes me wonder the kind of chaos that would happen in Lush stores if there was ever some kind of apocalypse..... would people be beating down their opponents for a bath bomb?

Lush Haul, cinders,

I did at first try and get onto the site to see if I could nab myself a bargain, however I don't have the perseverance to sit and wait in a queue on a website so I abandoned ship. I went into a store on the 28th of December and was shocked to see how bare the store was by this point. The shelves were empty and where there are normally lots of gift boxes lining the top shelves around the whole store, now was just bare walls! Lush had been stripped of all it's goodies and I felt like a vulture picking at the remains of what was left.

I did manage to get a couple of things though, so all was not lost.

Golden Wonder, Michelle Louise Love

Golden Wonder bath bomb, it smells fresh because of the lime oil and it's covered in beautiful gold lustre which comes off all over your fingers every time you touch it.

Cinders bath bomb, Michelle Louise Love

Cinders bath bombs, I love this one and buy it every year so would be very sad if they stopped making it. It says it smells like hot fruit punch, but personally I think that the cinnamon comes through the strongest with a little bit of an orange undertone. The popping candy on top is like the cherry on the cake.

Snow Angel bath melt

Snow Angel bath melt is so adorable and pretty with it's lashings of glitter, it smells amazing as well due to its main component being cocoa butter. I'm really looking forward to using this little beauty as I haven't tried a bath melt before. They are supposed to be really good for moisturising your skin, we shall see.

Melting Marshmallow Moment

This one wasn't part of the sale because it's available all year round but I've had my eye on this for a while. Melting marshmallow moment is a bath oil made up of lots of cocoa butter, almond oil, shea butter and coconut oil. It should bathe your skin in moisture and it smells like bubblegum. Whenever Lush describe something as smelling like candyfloss I never think that's what the smell is like. I smell bubblegum, that retro sickly sweet fragrance that I love so much.

So I'm set up for a fair few baths, which is a good thing as I have vowed to have at least one bath per week in 2016 as part of my aim of looking after myself and taking more time to really relax.
