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,

ORGANIZED CHAOS

Over the years i've collected little trinkets and treasures. I have so many little loves it can be hard to have them all out on display at once. However I like to change my surroundings often, which means switching out my gadgets and gizmos every few months or so. In a perfect world I would have them all out on display without my house looking like a gift shop. 

The other day I found this rad shelf online that I fell in love with. It got my artistic wheels turning a little which was nice since ive been on the uninspired band wagon lately. 

After a lot of help from Josh, a few trips to Lowes, and a very defiant wall anchor we finally got it up on the wall. All details below. 

On the top left of the shelf I have some flower power going on, along with a book of inspiring quotes from "Children of the Inner Light". Ive got a couple little buddhas, some sage, my geode, and candle. The little block is rad, its got different quotes on each side. I always keep it on the serenity prayer side because its one of my very favorite quotes. The two little tiny stones my dear friend Renae gave me once upon a time. 

Moving down a little I have a few different stones. First one is (I think) is Green Cobra Jasper, its one of the most unique stones I have. I cant find exactly what it is and I wish when I bought it I would have written it down. The closest thing I can find is the Green Cobra Jasper. Next is Amethyst, and Adventurine. Both gorgeous. 

Along the middle of the shelf I have layer of polaroid photos, because who doesnt love polaroid pics? 

On the right top side of the shelf I have candles, incense, a really dark green and red stone that I don't know the name of (again I should have noted what it is when I got it), and a few of my favorite plant holders. Moving down to the middle shelf I have some Carnelian and a variety of little gemstones in a shot glass. I plan on turning these each into necklaces but for now figured I would keep them on the shelf.

Bottom shelf i've got Amethyst and Quartz Crystal next to a photo of Josh and I. The caption reads "all you need is love". Ive got my Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 Instant Polaroid Camera along with some pens in a kerr jar, and some Aveeno hand lotion for when my hands need some lovin. 

Below the shelf on the table I keep my purses. This little area is basically a dumping ground for jackets, bags, bills, money, notes, etc... We keep all of our bills that need to be paid in a box and as the week goes on we add to it, then at the end of the week we pay bills, organize, and file away everything that needs to be filed. 

The table cloth is a scarf that I rarely wear because its so big. I thought it looked adorable with everything else going on in this area so I added it to the fold up table below the shelf. 

Its all a bunch of organized chaos, but its a great way to keep everything I love out on display without my entire house being covered. 

Much love!
