My Recent Lush Haul! / My thoughts on them (reviews)

Recently I went to Singapore again for when I get the chance to be in that land, of course I wouldn't want to miss the chance to drop by the one and only Lush store in South East Asia to stock up my Lushies! hehe.. Plus, my sister did ask me to purchase some products for her.. She loved Lush as well!! (I bet, any "normal" girl would! hehe)

So... What did I purchased?? Let's have a look! ^__^

Anyway, I did purchased quite a do expect a bit of a lengthy post in here as I go through one by one product that I have purchased, and did a bit of explaining/reviewing on them for your reading pleasure and more understanding about the products, for those who haven't try them yet! ^____^

Ok here goes!! (I'm excited already just by writing thisss! haha - So can you imagine just how overwhelmed I am, every time I enter the Lush store? haha ;p  *forgive me for being so lame!*  )

This is Ocean Salt!  - A cleansing lime, coconut and sea salt scrub. 

Ocean Salt is like taking your face on a trip to the seaside for an invigorating splash in the water, then cleansing and refreshing it with lemon, grapefruit and lime juices.  

Fresh avocado moisturizes and softens the skin, while violet leaf absolute calms and nurtures. Use this on oily skin every day and use it to refresh dry skin once a week.  

Suitable for all skin types: Ocean Salt is most beneficial for combination to oily skin. This is Lush most exfoliating cleanser as Ocean Salt contains a combination of coarse and fine sea salt. 

For an invigorating scrub: Salt and citrus oils can cause irritation for sensitive skin types. So if you’re quite sensitive, we suggest using a gentler product.

I personally love love loveeee this scrub! It smells great..I love the citrus smell! And it made my skin sooo soft after usage! I really felt a difference after using this scrub! And my face felt so unbelievably soft and squeaky clean!! However, the big rock salts did hurt my face a bit..sobss - It's a pretty abrasive scrub, as the salt granules are quite big, so you have to rub gently and be careful around your acne and definitely needs a moisturizer after! I can't get enough of using it, it's so nice to use this scrub! Love it!!  

See how it is made here!

The Full of Grace face serum!

We believe that everyone should have a Full of Grace as part of their skin care routine. Our solid moisturizing serum is packed full of hydrating tropical butters, calming chamomile and antioxidant mushroom extract to keep your skin in fantastic condition, all year round. 

Easily absorbed by the skin, Full of Grace creates a soothing treatment for the face. This preservative-free bar is a staple product; it’s the kind of treatment you should give your skin to maintain its elasticity, moisture and glow 

This serum is gentle enough for sensitive skin because our serum bar is suited to just about everyone! Massage Full of Grace into the skin before using a Fresh Face Mask to boost its effects. We use Portobello mushrooms in Full of Grace for their plentiful vitamins and antioxidant properties!

This serum is just beautiful! It really calms and soothes! Makes my skin so soft and takes away most of the redness I suffer as a result of acne that I have. tskk. And I have read somewhere, that this serum can also keep the eczema at bay! How awesome!

I don't really like the smell though.. But it's still fine! =/

This is Grease Lightning pimple treatment gel!!

Grease Lightning dries up spots and makes them disappear, not quite at the speed of light, but pretty quickly. We all quickly dab on a bit of transparent gel at the first feeling of impending spottiness. You can feel the toning witch hazel working at once. 

It’s for people with seriously bad skin, too; we make it with really beautiful natural ingredients so you can use it all the time. A bacterial-killing thyme, rosemary and tea tree infusion helps to cleanse the microbes that cause spots. Aloe vera, grape juice and lavender soothe your skin to help prevent spots forming. Use it day and night for better skin.

Oh my God. This product is really reallllllyyyy effective pimple treatment! It's great for those pimple that is inside your skin..and still so shy to come out! haha. You knoww..those pimples that don't come to a head and lingers in size and redness?! Ughhh. I hate them. I have a lot of those last time. (I still have it sometimes. tskkk). This kind of pimple means, there's a pus beneath the skin, and it usually won't come to a head until you get to it by using a needle to pop it! But using this product could make the head come out by itself eventually! That's why I loved it!!!

Anyway, this product brings down pimple size significantly overnight and it doesn't dry out the skin at all like some other pimple treatment gel/cream would! So I highly recommend this! - Although, this product did actually make my face has a lot of pimple coming out right now, as a result of me using this product all over my face TOO MUCH, instead of just on MY SPOTS!! haha  - Because since the product is great for making the pimple that is inside your skin to come out, so most of the potential zit/soon-to-be pimple on my face that I don't even know they're inside there, are all coming out now! isssh. So sad.. Can't wait for all of them to go away now..then I'll have a super clean face..with no pus living beneath my skin! hehe

Oh ya.. I found the pump is a bit difficult to use though.. cuz it's dispensing way too much product for a spots-only treatment - That is the reason why I always use the extra product that I've pumped, on the other parts/rest of my skin....(and now, they're becoming a little zit, waiting to die/dry. Pffft =___=' )

Conclusion is: I love it.. But won't use it on the other part of my skin that doesn't seem like a pimple anymore! So it won't make the soon-to-be pimple on my face that I-don't-even-know-that-they're-there, coming out so fast when it's not their time yet! hahaha. ;p

I'm definitely a fan, and would repurchase!

The Tea Tree Water toner!

Suffering from spots, blackheads or excess oil? Don’t fret! And most importantly, don’t use a toner laden with skin irritating alcohol. Blemish-prone skin if often more sensitive than we like to give it credit for. 

Treating breakouts with alcohol can actually further the problem! Our suggestion? Gently, but effectively, treat your skin with Tea Tree Water. The antiseptic tea tree oil clears out blemish causing bacteria, while grapefruit and juniper water balance oil production. Spritz your face with Tea Tree Water throughout the day to refresh and keep oil under control. 

Tea tree that T-zone: Particularly effective for oily, combination or blemish-prone skin. Refresh tired skin: Spray this toner on after cleansing to retain that ‘freshly washed’ feeling. Effective against blemishes: Antibacterial and antifungal tea tree helps banish imperfections

It's the Fresh Face Mask: Brazened Honey

This is a mask that contains a powerhouse of effective ingredients! Brazened Honey was inspired by traditional Indian ayurvedic principles, which put emphasis on balance as the foundation to health. Helen combined fresh free-range eggs and honey to soften, with astringent lime oil, antiseptic rosemary and exfoliating ground almonds. Kaolin reaches deep down into pores to pull out dirt and impurities, leaving your skin noticeably brighter and fresher. 

Our deepest cleansing mask, Brazened Honey is the perfect way to revive sluggish or congested skin. It banishes dirt and excess oil, and ideal for those with combination to oily skin, or those who want a deep cleansing mask. Brazened Honey is very stimulating, so if you’re quite sensitive, we recommend navigating towards Catastrophe Cosmetic or Oatifix instead! Deep clean for your skin: We use ginger root extract in Brazened Honey to help the body eliminate toxins from the skin.

This is my favourite mask among the 4 masks that I have purchased from Lush. I use this twice a week and will continue to use it. It goes on nice and you only need to leave it for 5-10 min. When you wash it off, it leaves your skin feeling so smooth, soft and clean! I hate the smell though..hehe.  But I love the tightening effect it gives while using this mask. You can view here to watch how this mask is made!

The Oatifix fresh face mask! - For dry/sensitive skin

Few things are more soothing than a big bowl of banana porridge, all sweet and squishy. Did you know the same is true for your skin? Sensitive, dry or irritated faces love Oatifix for its calming oats, softening mashed banana and ground almonds to slough away flaky skin. 

Keep in mind that dry skin doesn’t just occur in the winter! The sun can be equally harsh, as UV rays penetrate the dermis and heat can leave you feeling tight and dry. Treat your face to our most moisturizing mask all year round, and follow up with a spritz of Breath of Fresh Air toner for seriously soothed skin. 

Oatifix is just right for super sensitive, dry or irritated faces. It calms skincare catastrophes because oats are naturally anti-histemic, meaning they calm and soothe reactions or redness. And we’ve gone bananas! We use freshly mashed bananas in Oatifix to soften and moisturize dry skin.

Mmmm! This smells so good, that I just wanted to eat it up - although I hate banana! haha.. Anyway, This is a moisturizing and balancing mask.. I use this whenever I have dry skin. You can view here to watch how it is made!

This is the Cosmetic Warrior fresh face mask! - for oily/combination/acne-prone skin

Spots! Oily areas! Blackheads! The frustration of having breakout prone skin can incite aggressive, ‘industrial’ type cleaning. Unfortunately, breakout prone skin is often very sensitive, so using harsh cleansers can actually make the problem worse. Don’t over attack your skin; lead it firmly down the path to salvation with Cosmetic Warrior

Cosmetic Warrior is kind to problem-laden faces thanks to moisturizing egg whites and honey, which smooth and tighten the pores. Antiseptic garlic and tea tree oil effectively clean and disinfect spots for a fresh, clear face. 

Suffering from blackheads or blemishes? Cosmetic Warrior is the mask for you. Gentle, yet effective: Cosmetic Warrior’s ingredients defeat offending parties without irritation. Warm, spicy and fresh: We use tea tree oil in Cosmetic Warrior to keep the skin blemish-free.

This mask visibly reduces redness or inflammation from breakouts. It has a weird smell though. Garlic + tea tree, which kinda bothers me a bit when applying it for the first few minutes. But after 5 minutes or so, I kinda get used to the smell already,'s ok I guess? But the only problem that I don't like with the Fresh Face Mask from Lush is that, they expire quite fast, so you need to make sure to use them all up before their expiration date! By the way, you can view the video here to watch how this Cosmetic Warrior mask is made!

This is The Greeench powder deodorant!

Made with naturally effective herbs and powders, The Greeench is a wonder powder and one of the best deodorants Lush has ever made, waging wars against offensive underarms around the world. 

Thyme, rosemary and tea tree are the triad of super powerful, effective herbs that make it so fantastically effective at deodorizing, whiff defeating, and smelling beautiful. Micro fine powders of magnesium trisilicate and sodium bicarbonate keep your pits dry and comfortable, free from discomfort and moisture. Whew! That’s a powerful combination. Are you ready to put it to the test? 

Go Greeench: Our lean, green deodorizing machine for urban warriors and forest nymphs. Goes anywhere and everywhere: The Greeench can be used on armpits, backs, feet and anywhere that needs herbal assistance. Odors beware: We use tea tree in to combat bacteria and microbes that cause unpleasant odors.

I should have added this in my deodorants/combating sweat marks post last time! hehe. This product is a great alternative to roll-on or spray deodorant. It smells strongly herbal when applying, and I personally quite like it. This was for my sister, but I tried it a bit...and I love it! Will definitely purchase for myself the next time I pop into the Lush store! ;)

This is a solid deodorant bar called Aromaco

If you’re used to using a roll-on deodorant and want to make the leap to a natural alternative, Aromaco is an easy transition. We thought about all of the most effective ingredients for a deodorant and packed them all into this rather magnificent bar. We’ve put in astringent witch hazel, added in absorbent sodium bicarbonate (otherwise known as baking soda), to absorb excess moisture and smells, and fragrant patchouli oil into our creamy cake to keep you fresh, naturally. You’re left with softened, dry and tremendously pleasant smelling pits. 

A simple but effective solution for armpit control. Feeling fresh, witch hazel infusion helps to eliminate microbes and odor-causing bacteria leaving you fresh and clean. Triple threat: The chamomile vinegar tightens the pores, acts as an antibacterial agent, and soothes the skin!

Oh I loved this!!! I did not have a body odor at all when using thissss! It's such a great product..and I should have bought this earlier so I can feature it in my sweat stain post that I blogged about the other day! hehe.. This is a very effective deodorant for me. This deodorant is not miraculous cuz it did not stop me sweating (it is not an anti-perspirant product) but it strongly neutralises the odors. So it's great enough for me!  No wonder it is the best selling Lush solid deodorant bar, because it really is a great product! The product includes thyme and rosemary which smell really strong when you put the deodorant on, (I kinda like the scent! But for some reason, most people don't?) but this smell would disappear while the deodorant does its work. The only downside about this deodorant is that it doesn't come in a handy packaging. So this makes it not so practical! Especially when getting ready in the morning, where you gotta wash your hands again after applying this deodorant before applying your skin care/make up or do your hair or something... =/

I recommend you to use this product as your last step when getting ready in the morning..if you're so lazy to go to the bathroom and wash your self/hands again..hehe. And also, I recommend you to cut it into smaller pieces and put it in a cute small you can bring it for traveling or put in your handbag in case you need to "top up" your underarm area with some deodorant in the middle of the day! (although I think you won't be needing one unless you're a skunk who stings so bad. hehe ;p )

I will most likely buy this again!

This is a breast cream called Lovely Jubblies

Take care of your finest features with Mother Nature’s finest ingredients. Inspiring men and women alike, our rather brilliant breast cream is packed full of tightening meadowsweet infusion and firming tiger lily petals to help fight the forces of gravity. We add heaps of beeswax and organic oils of almond and avocado to soften your melons and keep them supple, (and to make it even harder to keep your fans at bay!)  Smooth a generous amount over your d├ęcolletage area and leave your cleavage smelling like a fresh floral bouquet of orange blossom, rose, jasmine and ylang ylang. 

For a pert pair: Packed full of cold-pressed organic oils and fresh flower infusions to tighten and firm the skin, improve skin tone and elasticity. Tiger lilies have astringent properties and are traditionally used to tighten the skin, making them perfect for firming up wobbly bits. Fresh Rose infusion is soothing and gently tones the delicate skin of your d├ęcolletage area, leaving it with a fresh, floral fragrance.

I don't know much about this. you can ask my sister about this, as this was hers. I remember that she did mention that this cream is great! She felt the effect instantly or something like that... Not too sure! hehe (Maybe you could write your review in the comment box, Ah-Long? hehe)

The Karma Kream body butters

Smooth on our signature scent in a skin soothing kream. Our orange flower and patchouli oil body lotion packs good Karma into one Kreamy pot. We created our Karma Kream to capture our best-selling signature perfume in a calming body lotion so Karma fans and converts can layer good Karma from head to toe. 
Smooth it all over your body for unbelievable spicy, citrusy fragrance and skin-soothing kindness that will repay itself twofold. It’s a rich, almond oil based cream with blended with the finest Fair Trade cocoa butter to soften and balance dry skin while orange oil helps to brighten your skin tone. 

Good Karma: Perfect for those who want to nourish dry skin and layer themselves in another layer of Karma
Light and lovely: The almond oil makes it lighter than some of our other body moisturizers and the signature Karma fragrance settles onto the skin for the rest of the day. 
Soothing and calming: Lavendin oil is used in our Karma range, from soap to fragrance and hair care. It helps to soothe the skin and promote a calmer mood.

This is the first lotion that I've tried from Lush and I was skeptical at first whether or not to purchase this during my third and fourth time visiting the Lush store, because of the price (it's quite expensive).  So I only tried this cream on my hand (during my fourth visit), but later, finding myself regretting for not buying it bcuz it smells so goood! I love the scent verrrry much!! It's unlike any other perfume or lotion I've tried before. The scent is unique! It smells like a combination of citrus and incense. So the next time I went to the Lush store, which was the fifth time by the way, this was the first thing that I took from their rack! hihi.. And now, I'm using it every other night before bed..  Initially, I probably wouldn't have thought of repurchasing this cream due to the price  but now,  I am seriously addicted to the scent! haha

The Tiny Hands solid hand cream

Small in size but big in impact, Tiny Hands is our fantastically softening, smoothing hand cream in a bar. Creamy cocoa and shea butter, soothing argan oil and aloe vera improve your skin’s elasticity while smoothing and softening dry, cracked hands. The comforting scent of sweet vanilla and marigold will make you feel instantly better but for the ultimate remedy for sore palms, smooth the moisturizing bar across your hands after a day of working hard. Even better? Apply before bed and wake up to a new grip on life. 

Two thumbs up: Give yourself a hand with our solid solution for hand care. A little goes a long way to give you smoother, softer mitts. Soft and supple; Argan oil increases the amount of nutrients and oxygen in the skin cell, improving elasticity.

This is my new hand cream! It's on my office desk now! It's so cute looking, and I love how moisturizing it is..and made my hands super soft!

The solid massage bar called Wiccy Magic Muscles - great for sore muscles

Tension-relieving spice massage bar, Wiccy Magic Muscles is the spicy, tingly muscle-soothing massage bar for sorting out aching muscles. The first time you use one of these, it feels very strange, as if a heater has been turned on inside the part of your body you just massaged. The Aduki beans are like firm fingertips working to relieve muscle pain and tension. They help to stimulate areas where circulation is slow. Peppermint and cinnamon spice oils work together as a powerful tag team to soothe aches and pains, alternately warm and cool to release tension caused by exertion. 

 A real strain: Inspiring runners and non-runners around the world to pull a muscle. 
Feeling kneady? Use the side buttered with aduki beans for an extra stimulating experience. 
Some like it hot: Cinnamon leaf oil is a brownish-yellow oil, which has a warm, rich and spicy aroma.

I love this product! I am addicted to the smell of cinnamon and I have sore legs and dry skin around my legs area, so using this is such a brilliant idea!  The cinnamon is stimulating. The moisture lingers all day and the soreness reacts to the heat.

Would definitely buy this again! You can view the video here to watch how this massage bar is made!

Oh, now I've two solid Massage Bars on my beauty table. Yeay! ^__^

The Big shampoo! - It's a bodybuilding shampoo for big hair and loads of shine 

Give limp hair more volume than you thought possible with seaweed infusion to soften hair, and fresh citrus juices for incredible shine. Made with over 50% sea salt, BIG is our most effective shampoo for hair in need of a boost to turn it into sexy, bouncing hair. Full of minerals, sea salt de-greases hair, removing dead skin cells and dirt, without stripping natural oils. The lift comes from debris being lifted from the roots of the hair for major oomph. Plus, we’ve mixed in extra virgin coconut oil, and avocado butter for added softness. Your hair will be bouncing back to life. 

Suitable for all hair types, but especially for limp locks. Once you go BIG you never go back. 
Shine on: Fresh lime juice delivers instant shine and leaves your hair feeling extra clean. 
One of your five a day: Full of vitamins, minerals and trace elements, Tooth Wracked Seaweed strengthens damaged hair.

This is definitely the best clarifying shampoo I have ever tried and it does miraculous things to my hair. My hair looked pretty and felt pretty! It smells lovely too! At first, I didn't think I needed another current shampoo is fine with me, but because of the nice scent..and also, because this is quite a different shampoo from all the shampoos that I have - with it's bits and chunks of salts in it, so I thought I'd give it a go. And I'm hooked! The texture is funny though - unlike the usual shampoos' texture (because of the big chunks of salts in it!), but it smells gorgeously amazing of coconut oil and citrusy lemony scent, and I love it! I usually take a small amount and add plenty of water to lather it in my hand, and I'll make sure my hair is very wet to begin swirling. This lathers so well, and I feel fabulous while doing so! haha. After it is dry, my hair is light, and looking somewhat voluminous!  However, I wouldn't use it everyday unless you've got very oily hair cuz if you use it too often, it will dry out your hair, and making it kinda static. I only use this 2-3 times a week. - Yes, this tub is quite expensive, but you only really gonna need a small bit at each shampoo...and I think my Big shampoo will last for quite awhile. :)

This is the Veganese hair conditioner 

Vegans and fine haired folks around the world rejoice! Veganese is our lightest, conditioner that takes hair without volume and makes it go va-va-VOOM! The majority of Lush products are vegan, but making a vegan conditioner without lanolin took us a few years to perfect. It was worth the wait. We use agar seaweed gel as a natural hair softener instead of lanolin, and blend in generous helpings of lemon oil to create the perfect vegan conditioner to leave you with tons of gloss and shine. We also added in the scalp soothing effects of lavender and rosemary to keep you sorted on top. 

 Our lightest conditioner is suited for fine, limp hair and conditions without weighing it down. 
Light and lanolin-free: Seaweed gel acts as the softening agent in place of lanolin 
Soothing for sore tops: Lavender infusion creates a soothing liquid that gently cares for scalps.

Oh, I loved how this Veganese smelled and how it left my hair smelling delightful! This is such a great lightweight conditioner that makes my hair shiny and glossy!  And it really did its job by leaving my hair feeling so soft and moisturized. I'm sooo going vegan after this! LOL ;p

This is a scalp treatment bar called Snake Oil - for relieving sore, irritated scalps

Dandruff, dry scalps and sore, irritated heads will soon be a thing of the past. If you’re suffering give your scalp a good run down with Snake Oil. Melt it into your fingertips and massage it right into your scalp. Lavender, tea tree and peppermint essential oils kill offensive dandruff-causing microbes and soothe burning and redness. The cocoa butter base softens and moisturizes the scalp to reduce that terrible itchy feeling. Leave the powerful essential oils to do their work for twenty minutes or so, and then wash it off with Soak and Float shampoo. Use it regularly until you're fixed. 

Scalp shedding like a snake?: Our blend of softening natural butters banish flaky bits. 
Smells like: Cade oil may smell like a camp fire, but nothing beats the effectiveness of this antimicrobial oil for treating dandruff. 
Loving lavender: Extracted from the flower of the plant the oil is antimicrobial and soothing for a variety of skin and scalp conditions

Ok, first things first... I HATE the smell! This bar has a really strong smell, very herbal and medicinal, and it can be unpleasant if you're the kind that is sensitive to smells. - I think the real snake smells better than this! hahah.. But then again, the product worked!!! And I love it, so it doesn't matter if it's stinks! This bar does help me a lot with my itchy and flaky, dandruff scalp! This is what I would use now in a flakey scalp crisis! I'd leave it overnight after massaging it on my hair, and then the next morning, I would wash it  using my Lush's bar shampoo called Ultimate Shine. This two products gives me amazing result!! I have shiny, bouncy and healthy hair! No more flaky scalp! Thanks Lush!!

The solid shampoo bar called Ultimate Shine - for hair that shine and shimmers

Our beautiful, glamorous solid shampoo does exactly what it says; it gives you gloriously softened locks with Ultimate Shine. How do we do that? It’s simple; each gently cleansing bar is filled with exotic essential oils to promote a happy scalp and shiny hair. Fragrant ylang ylang makes dull hair gleam once again; to boost your shine even more we add in golden glitter for a subtle shimmer. Floral violet leaf decongests, and gets things moving on your scalp again and toning elemi oil cares for your scalp and calms nerves. Wash away and be left with gorgeous, shining tresses. 

Shine on: Ultimate Shine makes your hair super glossy without the need for a conditioner. 
Beautiful and effective: Our violet-infused bar cares for your scalp, keeping it clean and oil-free. 
Double duty: Aromatherapists use uplifting ylang ylang to treat stress and depression but it is also effective for balancing the scalp and hair.

This is my most favourite of all the Lush shampoos. This doesn't dry out my hair at all! And it says there that it contains violet leaf to decongest the scalp and it really seems to work!!! No flakeyness whatsoever!! I really liked this. It made my hair really shiny and it smells good too! Just like their other solid shampoos, the only bad thing about buying this kind of shampoo is that you have to buy that little tin containers to store it in because without it, the soap doesn't last as long. Oh, and I also find that this shampoo adds a little volume to my hair too, which is always a good thing!


The R&B hair treatment - revive and balance misbehaving hair

Enjoy some of our smooth R & B hair stylings to control your frizzy, flyaway hair. An instant best-seller, our easy-to-use “hair finisher” uses softening ingredients of organic avocado butter, oatmeal, olive oil, extra virgin coconut oil, jojoba oil and candelilla wax because they are extremely effective for conditioning the hair and scalp. Three of our UK shop managers came up with R & B to revive and balance their wayward follicles. It works well with African American or curly hair because it conditions with a lot of moisture. And once you smell the seductive orange blossom and jasmine fragrance, your hair will truly get its groove back. 

 Dry no more: Supremely moisturizing ingredients make this an ideal solution for dry hair. 
Vegan music: Cupuacu butter softens hair and retains moisture, a fantastic vegan alternative to lanolin. 
Work out for out-of-condition hair: Our bay leaf infusion is stimulating, toning and works wonders on dry hair.

Haven't tried this. It's my sister's. But definitely going to buy one because it smells soooooo beautiful and the texture just seem like a really good hair treatment product!

This is a Sweetie Pie shower jelly

Our sweetest shower jelly is also our best-seller! Between the fruity fragrance, the iridescent glitter that leaves a sparkle on your skin, and the seaweed base that leaves your skin softened and refreshed, it’s irresistible. And while we know our blackcurrant and sour cherry wobbler smells good enough to eat, we recommend you curb your cravings and hop in the shower and wash with Sweetie Pie instead. Smooth it all over your body (and your hair too!) for a sweet yet sophisticated cleansing experience. 

Mineral-rich carrageenan extract is the seaweed that gives our jellies their jiggle. Some like it sweet: If you’re a fan of sweet, fruity fragrances you’ll fall in love with Sweetie Pie. Studies suggest that sour cherries are anti-inflammatory and antioxidant!

I love the smell of Sweetie Pie. I also love the texture and the look of it too - the deep purple with magical glittery purple sparkles. The sparkles are so pretty to look at, and the good thing is that they don't stick around on you once your bath/shower is over. I think it's cute and the little wobbly thing is fun! ;)

This is It's Raining Men shower gel - honey and lotus flower gel for hair and body

 Check out the weather report, it looks like rain today! Get absolutely soaking wet and lather up armed with one of the finest shower gels you can buy. Our honey hand and body soap became such a huge customer favorite that we just had to create a soothing honey shower gel with the same scent. It smells like toffee-fudge, with refreshing sweet orange and bergamot oils to give it a little extra sweetness. In case of stormy weather ahead we made It's Raining Men with lotus flowers to soothe your ravaged bodies and oodles of moisturizing, cleansing honey.  

Sweet on sensitive skin: Incredibly soothing and moisturizing, honey is ideal for dry, sensitive skin. 
Stormy weather ahead: It’s raining more than cats and dogs with our floral honey shower gel. 
Flowers bring honey showers: Half a kilogram of honey contains the essence of approximately two million flowers.

This product is absolutely gorgeous. It smelled divine!! - a really rich honey/toffee/caramel scent! Sounds sweet, no? Well it lathers up really easily too, and is incredibly moisturising - my skin feels silky smooth when I get out of the shower, which is so nice when I don't feel like applying moisturizer! The scent lingers very subtly on my skin, but it is awesomer when used for hair, I think?  All in all, this is a lovely, indulgent shower gel that makes taking a shower an wonderfully aromatic experience!!

These two are the bar soaps. They're called Porridge and Sultana of Soap

Left: Porridge - Scrubby soap for sensitive skin
Start your day right with a generous helping of Porridge soap. Ideal for sensitive skin; it’s irresistible to everyone else, even bears. A nutritious breakfast bar; we fill each one with oats to gently exfoliate and cleanse. As the oats mix with hot water, they create calming milk that soothes and softens your entire body. Organic orange juice is full of nutritious vitamin C, ideal for refreshing and brightening your skin, and keeping it clear. Oh, and did we mention the delicious caramel scent? All in all, this soap is just right. 

Bear-y good: Break into the bathroom, not a stranger’s house for an irresistible wash with a molasses-scented soap. 
OJ for a fresh start: Freshly squeezed, organic orange juice refreshes the skin and keeps it clear and spot-free with citric acid. 
Full meal deal: Oatmeal adds exfoliating texture to scrub dirt away, and calms skin with oat milk.

Right: Sultana of Soap - Lusciously fruity, supremely creamy soap. 
Revel in Sultana’s majesty, and have a wash with the royalty of soaps. It looks like a fancy Italian dessert; a giant nougat cake topped with succulent currants and apricots. Smooth a slice of our soft decadent soap all over your body for a creamy lather and the most dazzling bergamot and olibanum scent. Your skin will be delighted and you’ll be left softer and smelling like a fancy candy shop with a touch of fruity sweetness. If you weren’t invited to the wedding, at least you can brush shoulders with royalty in the shower. 

Get fruity: Apricots are rich in beta-carotene, a powerful antioxidant, minerals and potassium. 
Italian orange: Bergamot comes from southern Italy and we love it’s light, fruity, and floral fragrance. 
Olibanum: Very similar to and often confused with frankincense, olibanum has a gorgeous orange notes to its scent and it creates beautiful incense.

Haven't tried these two soap bars yet. Will definitely let you know when I've used them!

This is the body scrub + body butter that is called Buffy 

This is the original slayer tough on rough bottoms. Massage our Buffy body butter all over your wet skin in the bath or shower to make you softer and smooth to the touch, paying special attention to your backside. We add ground rice, almonds and beans to Buffy to act as exfoliants; the rough textures eliminate lumps and bumps and sloughs away dry skin cells to reveal brighter, fresher looking skin. Rinse off the exfoliating bits and pat yourself dry. There's no need for body lotion after a Buffy slaying session, because the cocoa and shea butters keep your skin beautifully smooth, moisturized and soft to the touch.  

For your buffing pleasure: Our best-selling body butter is so popular we make in two sizes. 
Rough stuff: Slay your bum, thighs, legs and anywhere you want to smooth. 
Smooth like butter: Shea butter is moisturizing, emollient and incredibly softening on skin.

I have tried their Aqua Mirabilis last time, and was SO in love with it that I just had to try their other range of body butter scrubs. So I purchased this Buffy! The Aqua Mirabilis smells soooo good, and made my skin so beautifully soft!! So I guess this Buffy is kind of do the same job like Aqua Mirabilis did to my skin - it softens and exfoliates the skin and also leaving skin super soft!  Anyway, Buffy is a "heavier" version of Aqua Mirabilis as the scrub is much harder/harsher on the skin.. So I guess it's good for exfoliating really really rough and tough skin! (The SA told me that this stuff is good especially for bottoms and thighs, where they're the tougher skin on the body..while Aqua Mirabilis is great for the other parts of the body).

Oh, I can't wait to try this out! Anyway, you can view the video on how this Buffy is made here!

This is the Pop In The Bath bubble bar

Evoke happy thoughts with bergamot and cirus bubbles. Everyone’s favorite nanny, a certain Mary Poppins, who blew in on the East wind and landed at 17 Cherry Tree Lane, was the original inspiration for our Pop In the Bath bubble bar. If you’re in need of sorting out a chaotic day we suggest you take a calming bergamot, lemon and mandarin bubble bath. The scent of Mediterranean mandarin groves and orange blossoms breeze past you as you lay back in the bubbles, perfect for dreaming of summertime no matter the season. Pop in the Bath has the same fragrance as our Olive Branch shower gel.  Orange blossom absolute comes from the blossoms of the bitter orange tree - the same tree that gives us neroli and mandarin oil is a delightfully uplifting citrus oil from the mandarin fruit.

You can see how it is beautifully made here!

This is a bath bomb that is called as Tisty Tosty

It is an enchanting, rose-scented spell for lovers. If your love life is stalled, you need a touch of magic. Based on a spell used to stir the passions, Tisty Tosty is our love potion made with the scent of precious rose and orris root. The flower of love, rose perfume is said to ease tension and give people happy, positive feelings (just like falling in love). It’s also good for dry or rough skin so you can improve your skin as well as your love life in just one bath. Already in love? Invite them into your clutches and a warm bath. Originally created for Valentine’s Day, we fell in love and have kept it ever since. Romantic rose and sexy jasmine weave a spell on your heart’s desire..and orris is one of the most expensive perfumery materials in the world; you can buy that.

This is the Big Blue bath bomb

Swim your private ocean in a relaxing seaweed soak. Take a dip into the deep blue sea of our Big Blue Bath Bomb for an inspiring getaway to the seashore. Lavender is instantly relaxing on the body and mind, and lemon oil helps to keep you afloat. For a truly authentic experience we’ve added in some of nature’s finest ingredients – sea salt and seaweed. Packed with minerals, salt helps the body rid itself of toxins, while seaweed softens and soothes your skin. Just lay back and sail away to shores of uncluttered thoughts, softer skin and warm, blue seas. 

This is for days when you need a relaxing escape from the world. It is filled with the finest, nutritious ingredients from the sea. When the seaweed soaks in the hot water, it becomes skin softening and soothing!

I bought this because it contains real seaweed in it and I read and saw good reviews on Youtube and that this is really a relaxing bath bomb and making the skin soft and supple. Oh, I can't wait to use it and enjoy my bath time while listening to Michael Buble's songs and lighting a vanilla/cinnamony candles! Mmmmm! ^__^

This is the Sunnyside bubble bar

This is a ray of shimmering sunshine with festive tangerine oil. If you've had a day full of disappointment, pop one of these sparkly bubble bars into your bath. As you crumble it under the running water, you'll start to feel immediately better. You just can't help but smile when you see the shimmery golden waters it creates. Maybe it's because citrus fruits only grow in warm, sunny places that their scents make us feel like smiling again. Sunny Side's orange, tangerine and lemon help reverse the troubles of the day, however badly it started. It'll turn your life Sunny Side up. 

 This is your dose of Vitamin D: Our sparkly golden bar with uplifting citrus to bring you sunshine. Feel the sun break through the clouds when you use this golden, luxurious bath. We use edible lustre used in baking to create a deep, swirling shimmer in the water!

Pretty sparkles and glitters! Turns your tub into a golden water! View how it is made here! ^__^

Okay, that's all my Lush haul for now... These are my reviews on those items I have purchased. I hope I have helped you guys making a decision whether or not to purchase some of those stuff that I mentioned, the next time you pop into the Lush store! ^___^ I mentioned in my previous Lush post, I stored my Lush bubble bars and bath bombs in a plastic food wrap, and put them in a clear glass bowl for now...

....but it's kind of over-flowing now, since I've purchased quite a few of them. hihi. ;p 
These are just for temporary use because my bathroom now is quite small and I don't have a proper storing space for bath products at the moment. But they will have their own drawer, later on when I get the new, bigger bathroom.

And over here are all my Lush shampoo and bath products that I have..

I call this little space in my bathroom, a mini Lush Bar where I store all my bath related products from Lush in here! hehe ;)

Can't wait to have this kind of Lush Cocktail Bath where I mix every essential product inside my warm tub!! hihi ^___^

Hope you have a great weekend and a nice soapy relaxing bath!!! Happy Lushing!! Take care and I will talk to you soon! ^__^

Lush Lover.
