You either love it or you hate it.
My local lush either has people running towards delish smelling soapy goodies or full pelt running away down the hill.
I choose to LOVE it. Which also comes in very handy for my family and friends as they can always be sure on a safe present bet. You can never go wrong with a glitter bug soap for a girl who loves anything that sparkles!
So after what seems like a life time ago (its not even been a month), xmas 10's lush haul of goodieness!
Whenever Iver been into lush in the past, I usually spend ages milling about, sniffing and touching all the goodies and then just sticking to my usual favourite; the pink comforter bubble bar and a sugar plum fairy shower gel on the side. But the beauty with Christmas and birthdays is that people don't necessarily know my staple purchases so I end up with wonderful gift sets with new things to try :)
My lovely sister came up trumps this time, with a gift set that was simply to die!
I cant remember the exact name of the set but it was wrapped in beautiful blue and purple paper, full of products I had never tried before, always a bonus!
So out of these beauties, my number 1 has to be 'The Olive Branch.'
- I love anything that's green. This Oily shower gel, with olives bergamot and mandarin juice, at first kinda grossed me out. It needed a good shake to separate the oil from the other mixtures. But the minute it hit my skin, OMG the most refreshing shower gel ever. Defiantly going to be a hit for the summer. Plus I'm a sucker for a cute slogan on products 'a reassuring shower gel to hold you in its arms and keep you safe' n'awwwww.
- The Soaps: I'm not really 'a soap person' I'm one for shower jelly's and bubble baths but with all these to try, I thought id give it ago. The one that i rate the most has to be 'honey i shrunk the kids' for its smell alone. Go into lush and see for yourself!
- and finally 'fair trade foot lotion' for your little piggies. Looks like strawberry angel delight at a glance with a minty fragrance. Have been using this for about 2 weeks now and my feet are lovely and soft; no hard skin in sight. However I was dragged along to one of those horrific 'fish feet spa' days with my nan: review to follow.... which could have helped on the hard skin front.
Oh and one more thing, after a recommendation from a very well known 'all that glitters' i had to try out the lush lip scrubs. Bubblegum flavour of course.
