One more post for you today because I was so inspired by my visit to the “other” Lush (I usually go to the store in Palladium but today I went to the place where you pick up online orders). I had such a good experience. Normally when I go to the Lush store there are loads of people there and it can be a bit overwhelming, this on the other hand is such a quite, peaceful place. Also, and here I have to say a little bit of critique on the Lush store, I have never EVER gotten any Lush samples from the Lush store, even though I purchase LOADS of items anytime I go there and have been a very good customer. Anyways, when you place an online order, you can choose two samples and I also wrote a note asking for two additional samples as I really wanted to try out two other items. The lady there was so nice and was genuinely surprised I had never gotten samples with my purchases before (this makes me want to boycott the store because they should be nicer to their returning customers). Now on to the good stuff.
If, like one of my friends who is currently visiting the States or my cousin who also doesn’t have a tub where she lives, you don’t have a tub, you can still enjoy (some) Lush products! I usually love (and write about) the bath products the most, but Lush has a big variety of soaps and shower gels and face masks and lotions and massage bars that you can still enjoy and pamper yourself with without having a tub. I’ve decided to share my experience with some of the products from my collection and today it will be soaps:

I’ve been Lushing most days in order to keep myself sane. I’ve mostly been going through my Christmas sale items (I personally think their holiday items are the best anyways and in the post Christmas sales they tend to be half off, which is just amazing, so yeah) but I’ve also tried out a few that are constantly in the Lush stock. So let’s review, shall we?

I apologize in advance for this being a Lush post but it has been a crazy week and the only thing keeping me sane (besides my rabbit) is the luxury of taking a lush bath every day.
Because I’ve tried out a couple more products, I thought I’d share my thoughts on how those products were. Let’s start with my new absolute FAVORITE PRODUCT EVER!! Seriously, it’s THAT good. The item in question is the Lush bubble bar Holly Golightly:
The top photo, with me in the bath and all those bubbles? Yup, thanks to Holly Golightly. This is such a great product. The smell is amazing and super festive, I love the name, it turns your bath into a lovely green color and the amount of bubbles is just insane!! I used a fourth of the bubble bar each time and I’ve already used each piece. I’m kind of sad it’s not a permanent item because I cannot wait to repurchase (I have two more in my stash but I never want to run out, so I’ll have to use them strategically.)

I wish we could just skip the rest of winter and move along to Spring 😒 because though I don’t mind cold weather at the mountains, I HATE winter in the city. I’m a winter sufferer too: my sleeping patterns are all over the place, I’m constantly too cold/too hot, and my skin gets super dry.
Especially my lips! I have to use lip balms literally all the time. Although I love lipstick I don’t tend to use any during winter. But here are some products that I use instead:

Hair Care can be real pain. Especially if you have LONG hair. I have long relatively thick hair which is VERY dry hair. If I don’t use conditioner then I can’t even comb through it. Besides normal conditioner I also use leave-in conditioner to try to get my hair to be slightly more manageable. I thought I’d share some of my current favorite products of my weekly hair care. (Yeah, it may seem a bit gross but my hair only requires washing once a week. )
(I may have one too many hair products! And even if I don’t use something I find it very difficult to throw it away like some of those super old hair sprays you can see in this picture. Ops.)
My hair routine is really simple: once a week I wash my hair with shampoo (I wash it twice, -shampoo-rinse-repeat-, once to make it clean and once to keep it that way. Ha, I don’t know if that really helps but that’s how I usually do it, unless I’m in a rush and then I just wash once), then I use conditioner and rinse it out. Then I towel dry my hair and apply leave-in conditioner. I usually then comb my hair and then I either leave it alone to air-dry or I fan it dry. If I don’t comb my hair when it’s wet (I know, it’s not really good for the hair but it’s necessary) , then I basically won’t be able to comb it ever! Anyways, here are some of my favorite products:

One of my favorite Christmas presents that I received was a Lush gift box from M. And it totally kick started (or well, renewed) my Lush addiction. I ADORE Lush. I’m 100% behind supporting the fight against animal cruelty, plus their products are amazing. I’ve decided to review the products from this gift box, at least the ones I have tried out so far…
