LUSH Haul + Review

image.jpg

I make a trip to lush typically once a month to stock up on bath bombs, purchase a few favorites, and grab some samples. I love trying out their latest products because they are always changing things up and I often find new favorites. 

After loving each product I purchased I thought I would share my thoughts, feelings, opinions, etc...

LUSH HAUL + MINI REVIEW

DreamWash is one of those products I have been interested in purchasing for a while but never really had a use for it. I just didn't understand the difference between a shower smoothie vs a shower gel and I couldnt justify making a purchase. After months of smelling this product and loving it but putting it back on the shelf I finally bought it! 

The Aloe Vera is what got me this time around. With summer finally here and me spending more time out in the sunshine my skin needs that extra TLC. 

This super soft shower smoothie is loaded with rad ingredients. In addition to Aloe Vera, its got Lavender, Tea Tree, Calamine, Chamomile, and my personal favorite...Rose! 

As you can imagine it smells like heaven. Its also super smooth and literally feels like you are putting chocolate mouse all over your skin. 

Thus far I am loving it! A little tip if you purchase this beauty. Let it sit on your body for a few minutes after you lather yourself up. I treat it like a body treatment. Your skin feels so much better and you really get all the benefits if you give it a little extra time to work its magic.

Ok...I know I get a little over zealous when it comes to Lush in general and I OFTEN deem ALL of their products as my favorites. But...this one is definitely a favorite! Best face exfoliant I have honestly ever used. And can we take a second to acknowledge the bad ass name for this one. It does not get cooler than Smugglers Soul. 

I love a lot of their face scrubs but this one is top notch for me. I love that the scrub itself is super fine. It feels more like sand then chunky pieces of almonds (no offense Lush). 

Sandalwood, Argan Oil, and Shea Butter make for such a simple delicious smell. I love it!

Doing some research online I also discovered that they have this baby in a moisturizer as well as a shampoo! Check it out > Moisturizer & Shampoo Bar

Lush is great about samples, if you want to try something ask! With my purchase of DreamWash I passed on a shower gel this round. So instead I asked for a sample of Outback Mate

This one smells super yummy with Lemongrass, Peppermint, and Eucalyptus. Its minty and beachy making you feel happy and clean! 

BATH BOMBS

I go above and beyond to make my Self Love Sunday bath nights magical. As far as candles, music, herbs, intentions, and energy go - its the bath bombs that really make it what it is. 

Bath bombs are really where my Lush addiction started. I have tried them all! Heres what I bought for the month of July!

TWILIGHT - This one is a staple. A very favorite that holds a special place in my heart. It swirls around your bath turning the water into a pink, purple, and blue night sky with little bits of sparkle. It smells of Lavender and Tonka (which I have recently learned is that secret ingredient I am obsessed with). 

This super gentle slow release bath bomb smells totally magical. Its got a warmth to it that makes you feel totally loved by the universe itself. The Lavender relaxes you, the Tonka is incredibly intriguing, and its got a hint of Ylang Ylang for a little bit of sexy.

HONEY BEE - This one is one of my grounding bath bombs. In addition to the obvious honey smell its super earthy! I like to mix herbs with this one for a little extra Gaia Goddess in my life. 

Orange, Honey, Tofee, Bergamot and Moroccan Rhassoul Mud is what makes this extra special. Its also got a hint of Aloe Vera so expect some silky soft skin!

YOGA BOMB - We started off on the wrong foot but now im obsessed. The Yoga Bomb is a super grounding and uplifting bath bomb. Your bath looks like a sunset and smells like a field of oranges and incense. 

I am glad I gave it a second chance after our first encounter because bath night with this one is a groovy journey you dont want to miss out on!

SEX BOMB - This is one of their most popular bath bombs and for good reason. In my book this is the ultimate Self Love bath bomb. Definitely a favorite and definitely one I purchase every time I go. 

This is a sexy bath bomb with all the aphrodisiacs loaded into it! Jasmine, Clary Sage, and Ylang Ylang. You feel relaxed and loved while your senses dance around making a very romantic bath night. 

I also love this one for that special time of the month. Clary Sage is the key to shitty periods! 


And thats my latest purchase! Until next time my sweets...

Much love,

My Favorite Mascara

image.jpg

When I first heard about Benefits "They're Real" Mascara I didn't think much of it. I just figured it was another product to test out and add to my collection of mascara that had piled up over the years. 

Since the day I started wearing makeup mascara was my favorite. Even though it was clumpy and would dry up fast, I just thought that was the way it was, and we learned to deal with it. I loved the way it framed my eyes and made everything more intense. 

I remember my mom applying mascara and watching her method. The mascara would clump on her lashes and to get rid of it she would take a needle to each lash to seperate. She would wipe off the mascara bits on some toilet paper and start again. 

Eyelash brushes made sense but even to this day I don't think I've ever used mine. Maybe I'm doing it wrong but it doesn't seem to make much of a difference.  

I have gone back and forth trying different products never with much hope, but when I tried out "They're Real" by Benefit I realized that a great mascara does exist and it really is the greatest! 

I have mentioned it in just about every YouTube video, and for a reason. I don't get this excited about a single makeup product.   

I love "They're Real" mascara by Benefit! It doesn't clump, flake, stain, or dry out fast. It lasts all day looking fresh but isn't impossible to take off at the end of the day. I notice my lashes look fuller, longer, curled, and polished. They don't look like spider legs and they don't look fake as hell. They look real and they look good. 

This is definitely one of my staple products and I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a great mascara! The proof is in the pudding, check it out and share your thoughts!  

Much love!
