Shopping

A small Lush haul

We went to Amsterdam recently and decided to pop into Lush for a few items. Now Lush is a an indulgence for us. We go maybe once a season to stock up on limited edition items which we now have a surplus of. It’s not that we busy so much at once, it’s that the product lasts for a long time. We mostly buy soaps and once once in a great while a bath product.

I’ve used this shampoo for years and it’s done really wonderful things for my hair. I’ve got oily roots and even though I wash it every three days, I always feel like it gets oily way too quickly. Especially when I use shampoo and conditioner combos, the residue is just too much for me to handle. Big is made of sea salt and citrus juice so it’s a strong cleanser for my oily hair. I’ve used lemon juice in the past to clean and cleanse oil from my finger nails and it works like a charm. Big is no different. All I have to do is wash my hair with it and my natural curls work in harmony with the volume boosting formula. It never weighs down my hair and this is probably the third or fourth time I’ve repurchased. It’s hard to remember since I end up using it for six to seven months at a time.

I’ve been dying to buy one of the Lush perfumes and I’ve finally decided on Dirty. It’s so hard to describe it in simple terms. It’s fresh, soft yet spicy, comforting and yet bold. I adore the scent of sandalwood as well, and was excited to see it in the product list. I spritz on a little bit in the morning and the scent is with me all day. Since I’ve been working from home and there’s no AC here, the summer heat makes me nice and sweaty but this body spray covers all that grossness right up. I sampled this scent and thought about it for two weeks before I took the plunge and I’ve been glad I did!

Since I saw that tea tree is good for blemish prone skin, I’ve invested in a few products but never this one by Lush. It also contains grapefruit and juniper water so the tea tree smell isn’t too strong. Not that I minded  the scent previously but this makes me feel more refreshed in the mornings and before bed. Also far so good, my skin is reacting nicely and there’s so much more product in this bottle compared to the other brand I was using. I’ve read that skin takes about a month to refresh itself so I’m waiting to see what the results are. I’m hoping for clearer skin that’s not so oily!

The next time we journey out to Lush will probably be in the fall for those delicious Halloween/autumn treats they stock. Sander was obsessed with Fireside so we ended up going back and getting more. I can’t wait to replenish our supply of Lord of Misrule, that’s our current favorite body wash and we’ve been using it since mid-October.
