Lush Essentials

Aloha Bloggerinos,

This weekend I went to Milton Keynes on a Bridesmaid Dress mission (ever tried finding dresses that suit a dark skinned/dark hair size 6 13 year old and a blonde haired/pale skinned size 12, 25 year old? It's a bugger I tell ya!) and decided to kill 2 birds with 1 stone (poor birds) and stock up on the necessities.

I often pop into Lush on lunchbreaks or with friends not only because I like and use the products but because I find it a pleasurable experience to wander around the attractive displays and touch shower jellys, sniff bath ballistic and try moisturiser. I had to admit, that most of the things I buy from there are on impulse and are because I like the smell, luxuries if you will. However, I do have a select few items that I buy over and over and simply luurrrvvvvvveee. *Ahhh Jeez, now I have Love Shack in my head. Grrr*

The first and favourite Lush item is Dream Cream. (Please excuse Lush Website pictures, my camera is downstairs, I'm upstairs, my legs fell off etc etc).
This moisturiser practically makes my skin swoon. I use it on my legs, arms, face, neck, everywhere! It has a unique light scent that is so light that even the Fiance uses it on his face (shhh don't tell his friends) and quenches my dry, thirsty skin all day. It has a medium-thick consistency and soaks in quickly without leaving a greasy residue. A big pot retails for £9.99 ish (don't quote me on it) and last me about 3 months- good value, non?

My second essential is a hair conditioner that is by far superior to the many others that I have sampled.
American Cream is a thick and (quel surprise) creamy conditioner that leaves me hair super soft and smelling divine! I shan't go into reviewing this as I have reviewed it before when I was kindly sent a bottle from the lovely Becky at Lush (I'm still excited by all those freebies). I have since bought 2 more 500g bottles for £12.25. I think this is expensive but I am prepared to splash out a bit for such a good product.

My third and final re-purchase is the Flosty Gritter Bubble Bar, which for me, is a bath time must have.

I love love love the sweet smell of this and they way it makes the bath water hot pink and sparkly- who doesn't want a pink bath?! I only ever use about a quarter of this at a time and find this is more than enough. Of all the bath things I have tried from Lush, and this is an obscene amount, I like this best :)
Each one retails for £3.30, so if you use it like I do, it is less than a pound per bath.

I must say, I find that I don't really have baths in the summer (yeah, yeah, I do shower, I don't stink!) but with Autumn on it's way, lalalala. Can I also, just say, Autumn is my most happy season. Yay Autumn!

I do also have a couple of Christmas Limited edition Lush items that I am chomping at the bit to get my greedy little mitts on, but I shall do a post on those another day, let's not Lush overdose eh?

Do you like any of these products or have any Lush must-haves?

Toodlepip!
