I placed a Lush order a couple of weeks ago, and decided to showcase what I bought in a haul. Hauls are so retro in the blogging world, and I personally really like to read a good haul post, but hardly anyone does them any more. For those that also love a good haul, and a Lush Christmas haul in particular, I bought ten different products.
I personally find Lush to be a little overwhelming, especially their website as they have such an extensive product range. Then you have all of their seasonal ranges, the naked ranges, and just a lot of products in general. I tried to get a mix of products as part of my Lush haul with both limited edition and permanent products too.
Kicking off with the Shower Bombs. What is a Lush Shower Bomb I hear you ask? Well essentially, it’s a bath bomb that you can use whilst you’re in the shower. I love a good relaxing bath, but equally I really enjoy a nice shower, so I thought it’d be good to give them a try.
Everyone raves about the Lush Bath Bombs and Bubble Bars, and never really mention the Shower Bombs. I’m not entirely sure why, and didn’t know if they’d be any good or would literally be money down the (shower) drain. I didn’t even know what a shower bomb is? It’s essentially a bath bomb in that it’s a solid piece of powder, which crumbles just like a bath bomb and instead of dropping it in your bath, you hold it under running water.
The running shower water helps the shower bomb to effervesce, and you then use the fizzing shower bomb to massage into your skin like you would with a solid soap. You only get one use from a shower bomb, and they do fizz quite quickly, so you can’t wait around once it’s wet. It’s easy to massage over the skin, and it leaves a thick lather of foam over the skin. Just like a bath bomb, the Lush Shower Bombs are strongly scented and contain essential oils, leaving your whole bathroom smelling amazing post-shower.
I bought five of the shower bombs on offer;
- Sugar Plum Shower Bomb
- Sleepy Shower Bomb
- Not Sleepy Shower Bomb
- Rudolph Nose Shower Bomb
- Comfort Zone Shower Bomb
My favourite would have to be Comfort Zone as it smells exactly like Lovehearts sweets. They are really nice to use, especially if you only have a shower, and feel like you miss out on bath bombs.
I then purchased two Lush Shower Jellies as I’ve never tried them. I got Twilight as the description sounded fab, as well as Conga as the vanilla and raspberry fragrance instantly won me over.
They’re very strange, in that they’re solid, wobbly jellies which fall out of the pot, and you hold it underwater and then massage the jelly into the skin. They are very slippery to hold, but they’re fun and different to your average shower gel.
Talking about shower gel, I got two more to try. I got the Lush American Cream Shower Gel as it’s raved about so much, and the Lush Honey I Washed The Kids Shower Gel which is honey scented. I’m still on the fence with Lush shower gels as they don’t lather as effectively as I’d like, but I’ll keep trying other shower gels in the hope of finding the perfect LUSH Shower Gel.
Lastly I got something a little different. I chose the LUSH Body Conditioner in Snow Fairy, as the Snow Fairy fragrance is delicious, but the scent doesn’t linger. Hopefully this body conditioner will work wonders – I’ll keep you posted
