Huge Lush Haul

A picture of Lush products including Lush Bath Bombs, Lush Bubble Bars, Lush Dry Shampoo and Lush Body Conditioners
I have been going more than a little Lush crazy recently, grabbing pampering bubble baths whenever I can and indulging in my box of Lush bath treats to the point where I really needed to make an order to replace some of the products I had used up (and try some new ones, too!). 

There's a few regulars that always make their way into my basket when making a Lush order; Avobath, Butterball and Twilight Bath Bombs. Avobath Bath Bomb (£3.35) has a really reviving scent of Lemongrass and Bergamot Oils, with Avocado and Olive Oil which work to tackle dry skin. Butterball Bath Bomb (£2.65) is one of the smallest bath bombs on offer from Lush and is an absolute favourite of mine when I want super soft happy skin. It's perfect for dry, sensitive or sore and irritated skin, with a formula that works to replenish and pamper skin. With Cocoa Butter pieces that melt into your bath, alongside the soothing scent of Ylang Ylang, this is definitely a must-try bath bomb from Lush! Twilight Bath Bomb (£3.35) is a perfect bed-time bath bomb, with a soothing scent of Lavender, Benzoin and Tonka Bean. Plus, I love the way this turns your bath into a gorgeous purple dream!

If you're a fan of Lush or follow any Lush accounts on Twitter, you'll know that there's a few products being discontinued. You can see all the products before discontinued here. Unfortunately quite a few of my favourites are included in quite a big selection of products which will soon be no longer available to buy, but there was also one product which I had wanted to try for a while and decided now was the time, before it was gone for good. Dorothy Bubble Bar is a product which has always caught my eye in store, and if I'm honest I have no idea why I waited until it was discontinued to buy it. With a very pretty and fun design of blue skies and a colourful rainbow, it promises to create blue water and bubbles with the exotic floral scent of Ylang Ylang, sweet Figs and uplifting Orange Oil. Did you manage to try Dorothy Bubble Bar before it was discontinued?

When gearing up to write this post and getting all the right info from the www.lush.co.uk website, I noticed that the Bubble Bar section has actually had a revamp - so a few of the products I've picked up now look slightly different! (Although I think that's a good excuse for me to make another order very, very soon...) One of the products which now looks different is Pop in the Bath (£3.25) which I have to admit, I think the revamp looks prettier! Another one I have always been drawn to in-store but never tried before, Lush promise Pop in the Bath is the perfect pick-me-up. With a bright and zesty fragrance with a beautiful blend of Bergamot, Lemon and Mandarin Citrus Oils, it almost smells like lemon drizzle cake - yum!

I managed to snap up May Day Bath Bomb just before it sold out, a campaign product which was created to support both badgers and cattle in the fight against bovine TB; you can find out more here. With a strong, heady yet refreshing scent of Fennel Oil and antiseptic Rosewood Oil, it's a scent I can't wait to envelope myself in. I love Lush campaigns and think they support some really fantastic causes in some fantastic, fun and innovative ways - they recently created a gold and glitter covered soap to highlight the lunacy of anti-gay laws around the world, which I shared in this post.

Like many Lush fans, there are a few scents, both individual and ones akin to lots of different products in-store, that I am besotted with. Nothing will ever beat my love for Tramp Shower Gel, which I am still devastated was discontinued and I always keep an eager eye on the Lush Kitchen to see if the original Tramp Shower Gel will make a come back (please Lush Kitchen!). Another scent I am unashamedly obsessed with is Rose Jam, which is a scent that features in 4 Lush products; the Rose Jam Shower Gel, Rose Jam Bubbleroon, Pearl Massage Bar and Ro's Argan Body Conditioner

Ro's Argan Body Conditioner has been on my wishlist forever, but at £16.50 it's not the cheapest product on offer. My partner decided to treat me to this one for my birthday back in July - which was a very pleasant surprise and as you can imagine, left me over the moon! A pretty famous Lush product, it's been packed with delicious butters and oils to leave your skin hydrated, softened and beautifully scented, with nourishing Argan Oil, Vitamin E and essential fatty acids, alongside Brazil Nut and Almond Oils, Cocoa, Shea and Cupuacu Butters, and a sweet rose scent. You can check out my review of the Rose Jam Shower Gel here, and my thoughts on Pearl Massage Bar here.

You may have noticed a theme with Lush Bubble Bars - I am a big fan and love the way that you can get several uses out of one bubble bar, crumbling just a little at a time for a bath full of bubbles. I picked up three scents from the Bubbleroon range with my order; Rose Jam Bubbleroon, Yuzu and Cocoa Bubbleroon (£3.75) and The Green Bubbleroon (£3.75). I've tried The Green before, but this is my first time trying the Rose Jam version (which I can't seem to find on the website - I hope it's not been discontinued too?!) and Yuzu Cocoa. Rose Jam obviously has the same scent as Ro's Argan and the other Rose Jam products available from Lush, whereas Yuzu Cocoa has a comforting sweet scent that's almost like cake and chocolate in one. It contains moisturising Coconut Oil, Shea Butter and Citrus Oils and actually smells a lot nicer in person than I expected. The Green is one of my favourite scents from Lush and smells like freshly mown grass with Bergamot and Coconut Oil - this one is very refreshing and perfect after a long day.

Last but not least and a purchase I wasn't really sure about, but have so far been pretty impressed by, is No Drought Dry Shampoo (£3.95). Because I have naturally dark hair, I struggle when it comes to dry shampoos to find ones that won't leave me looking as if I'm going grey. Instead of a spray format like most dry shampoos on the beauty scene, Lush have created an extremely fine powder with oil-absorbing Grapefruit and Lime which refresh hair whilst leaving a subtle and reviving scent. You can expect a full review on this very soon!

Have you picked up anything from Lush recently? Are there any products you think I should try next time I make a Lush order?

  8. Karma is my absolute favourite, all of the range. It's a shame Flying Fox is being discontinued. I'm a huge fan of the solid shampoos, if you like the Rose Jam smell Jason And The Argan Oil is amazing.

  13. I can't understand why they would diss-continue their dry shampoo :o( I'm so glad their Yellow Colour Supplement foundation is still available as it's the only one I've ever found that matches my skin tone. What foundation do you use hon?
