Free Sample Friday: LUSH Ocean Salt

Hey all!

I am loving this series…and I hope you all are too! This week we will be talking about the lovely LUSH product; Ocean Salt body scrub.

LUSH.001

I adore LUSH. Let’s start with that basic fact. And I have a strong feeling that the majority of you all do too.

That being said, this little joy is an exfoliating scrub that is perfect for the summer season. Its formulated with ingredients such as sea salt (I know, gasp!), mango butter, coconut oil, and organic lime extracted in vodka.

WHAT EVEN IS THAT?!

I have no idea. But I love it.

It smells amazing, It makes my skin so soft. It is perfect to use before self tanning, shaving, or just to have those super soft legs we all adore.

Are you convinced now? Read more about this treat here!Β Let me know if you all have any LUSH goodies you swear by!

Would I purchase a full-size? Done and done.

LUSH Spring Haul

*Sigh*

I love LUSH. I love LUSH so incredibly much. So upon my recent vacation I corralled my extended family into the car and dragged us to the nearest LUSH location.

Everyone and their dog has been posting pictures of the adorable new spring-shaped goodies. And me, being easily coerced into purchasing anything remotely cute…had to have them.

Bunch of Carrots: my first absolute pick of the LUSH spring haul…this delightful citrus-scented cutie is basically perfect. It’s a reusable bubble bar, comes in a bunch of three, and smells fresh and like oranges. I cannot wait to use them!

Lemony Butter Cuticle Butter: I tested this out the last time I was in LUSH and was so impressed by how soft it made the skin around my nails. I don’t know about you, but I tend to get tons of hang nails. This thick butter is so rich and is able to moisturize even the roughest hands.

Fluffy Egg: this hot pink bath bomb is formulated in one of LUSH’s signature scents- cotton candy. It is sweet, fruity, and rich all at once.

RED Fun: The best way I can describe this is play dough made out of soap. The concept is that this bar of soap can be molded into various shapes- perfect for young children….or young adults πŸ™‚ Also, it smells like mandarin….amazing.

Each Peach (and Two’s a Pair): This is one of LUSH’s signature massage bars. It is a moisturizing lotion bar, scented of citrus (of course…my fave). If you have not tried LUSH’s massage bars yet I would highly recommend it. They are perfect for after you get out of the bath to re-hydrate your skin.

Overall, this LUSH trip was a complete success and I have completely enjoyed each and every product. If you can, I would recommend trying any you can!

Hello hello!

brb, I’ll be in the bath.

OK, now I smell delightful and am ready to share with you all my favorite picks from the…..

LUSH Christmas collection:

The Melting Snowman: A luxurious bath melt reminding us all of hot toddy drinks, cinnamon, and clove

Cinders: Cinnamon and crackling fires will bring fall to a close with this bath bomb!

Magic Wand Bubble Bar: Cotton candy scented! YAY! And reusable? And on a fairy wand? *sigh*

Father Christmas: I literally cannot wait to test this puppy out- with the snow fairy scent this bath bomb promises red and green Christmas waters!

So White: For a quick morning refresher – this bath bomb is bright and apple scented

Butterbear: A take on the classic LUSH butterball scent with a touch of vanilla

Snow Angel: So, this goodie is apparently half bath bomb and half bath melt…what?! And marzipan scented?

I love Christmas.

Also cookies, I love cookies.

Lush Haul

Hello Lovelies!

I have been obsessed with Lush for the last few months, and finally had a chance to go to one of their stores over spring break. Needless to say I went slightly crazy.

But it was my first time at the store, and I had SOOOOO many products I wanted to try! But after much shopping, sniffing, and product testing, I settled on a few items I couldn’t leave the store without. First, I must say that I am a HUGE bath fan. Like I would take a bath over a shower any day….and this fact may have influenced my purchases…..

Luxury Bath Melt in You’ve Been Mangoed

IMG_4636

Initially I only bought one of these but had to drive back and purchase another because they are SO AMAZING. With the most incredible citrus scent, this bath melt is so moisturizing and leaves my skin feeling like absolute silk. I tend to use these to prevent razor burn or if my skin is feeling dry or itchy.

Bath Bomb in Butterball

IMG_4646

Another item I purchased two of, this bath bomb is simple and luxurious. Scented like vanilla and cocoa butter, I popped it in the bath and enjoyed a peaceful and calming bath. This bath bomb left my skin so soft and I felt very moisturized afterwards as well.

Bath Bomb in Honey Bee

IMG_4645

A caramel and honey scented bathbomb, I cannot wait to use this. It is quite large as well, and is formulated with aloe. I plan to use this when my skin is feeling particularly dry as the aloe should work to soothe, or maybe to soothe my skin after a nice day in the sun!

Bath Bomb in Avobath

IMG_4637

During my second excursion of the day to Lush, I spied this delicious product. An exciting green color and made with lemongrass and avocado….holey moley I’ll take ten please. I’m also really hoping it dyes the bathtub green, because that would be really sweet.

Bath Bomb in Space Girl

IMG_4644

Okay, I had to get one with sparkles! This was my fun purchase, less for soothing purposes, more for uplifting! The scent of this spaceship shaped product is sweet blackcurrent…and it’s supposed to turn the bathwater purple. Score.

Alrighty folks, that concludes my first ever Lush haul! I had so much fun with all the products and can’t wait to make a second trip and try out more! Leave me your recommendations below of your favorite Lush goodies!
