My First Ever Lush Haul

I imagine you reading that title with a puzzled look on your face. It’s true, I can’t use anything too harsh in the bath as I have quite sensitive skin. But, after reading somewhere about the advantages to one particular shampoo I was intrigued. So off I stroll to Lush and these are my buys, yes I said buys. I got totally sucked in by the Lush smell (pun intended). Also picked up a copy of the Lush Times which I caught my boyfriend reading! lol

BIG Shampoo

This is incredible! I use this Shampoo once a week and usually at the weekend when I have more time to dry my hair properly. The first time I used it I think I used too much lol I was nearly lost in bubbles! My hair was super shiny and felt so soft and clean to touch. The second time, I used a little less product and put my hair in big velcro rollers for added volume, it looked amazing, if I do say so myself.

Lush Website Quote

“Sea salt shampoo for shine, softness and big endowments. This pot of oceanic goodness is 50% sea salt to give limp hair the volume it deserves, with seaweed infusion to soften hair and citrus juices for shine. After using Big, your hair will be bouncing back to life.”

Bubblegum Lip Scrub

As I was paying for BIG I noticed this cute little pink pot of ‘stuff’, so picked it up and gave it a whiff and OMG! - heaven. The Lush assistant said to try it on my lips then lick it off, well that had me hooked, a lip scrub that you can eat. YUM! It’s a lovely girly pink colour and is now a firm fixture in my handbag.

“Our fabulous lip scrubs are here to keep your kissers sweet. This one will make your lips smell like our best-selling Snow Fairy shower gel. Bubblegum is made with exfoliating castor sugar and our delicious vegan flavour to gently scrub away rough skin, keeping your lips smooth and kissably soft. Simply rub it over your lips when they're feeling the need for some sugar”
Sugar Scrub

Now this product was a bit of an impulse buy, as I walked in Lush my eyes caught the word ‘cellulite’ so after speaking to the assistant I also purchased one of these. I have to say it is one of my favourite products along with BIG. I have quite rough skin on my thighs and back of my upper arms and this sugar scrub works a treat. It left my skin feeling ever so smooth and I could have got away without moisturising but did moisturise because leaving a bit out would have been just weird really. ;o)

“Our Sugar Scrub is hard, but a bit of a sweetie. Its no nonsense stance stimulates activity and tackles cellulite with fennel and ginger. Skin calming lavender has a balancing effect. Get yourself wet in the shower or bath, but don't let the bar get under the running water or it'll be lost before it can prove itself. Scrub, scrub, scrub and rinse away. It doesn't waste any time getting down to business”

I have nearly used all the Sugar scrub and I’m pretty sure my other half has had a sneaky go at it too, I don’t mind though, if it means I get to visit Lush again. I am definitely converted!

Long Live Lush!!
Is BIG one of your lush products?


  1. What gorgeous things! I usually just head straight for the bubble bars, but I think I will try that Big Shampoo now! xxx

  2. Yeah do, you'll love it. Let me know how you get on sweets x x

  3. Great Page :)



  4. Hahha I have also caught my boyfriend peeking at my lush times.. I've never had a lush "haul" either, just a few tiny things but I can never get myself to the city to do any real shopping there :( really need to change that soon, everything you got looks amazing esp the shampoo! x

  5. OoOoOo... Nice haul :) that lip scrub looks totally yummy... I'm a teensy bit obsessed with lip balms/conditioners etc so will have to give it a try. Lush do a really gorgeous shampoo bar thingies that are just like mini bars of soap and they're all absolutely heavenly!

  6. Ariel - my boyfriend confessed to using my sugar scrub too! lol If you buy BIG let me know how you get on.

    All Made Up - As I was paying for my bits in Lush my eye caught something that looked like a cheesy thing - lol. It was a bar of soap I forget the name now but it smelt like honey and she said it was Lush's best seller. Might have a go on that next. x

  7. All the lush stuff looks cool. I really like the design of your blog. very nice.


  8. Nancy - Thank you hun, was a bit nervous about setting a blog up but happy now that I did!
