What A Lush!


I've been keeping my distance from Lush for a while now. I always knew they had good stuff, but I didn't know how kick butt their stuff really was, since I merely tip toed among the products so not as to form a longing. Well, thanks to a lushie who recently gave me a catalog, I read about some of the products and was overcome by this strong desire to pick up a couple of things. When I went to the store, this giddy elation came over me, and I had to stop myself and put a few things back on the shelf. I mainly went there for bath bombs, the "Mask of Magnaminty" and the bath bubble slices. I came out with a whole lot more than that! I bought so much that I qualified for a free goody bag. Trying out the products was so surprising for me. I mean, I always tried their facial soaps (Fresh Pharmacy, Coal Face) and liked them, but their body creams and shampoos are out of this world.

This one shampoo called "Big Shampoo" is just a fully loaded sensory experience. It has real sea salt in it, and when you scoop some and put it in your hands, you don't really want to put it in your hair. But the sea salt melts away and scrub your scalp, and the lather is just crazy-good! It washes away to a squeaky clean, so I wouldn't use it too often, but it's hard to resist the urge. It also relaxes any waves or curls you might have. Good to use when you want to feel weightless. And Dream cream is just awesome. I have yet to try the natural deodorants they have. I am so looking forward to using my bath bombs and bubble slices and also trying my Cynthia Stout shampoo which is supposedly really really good....

That's it, I am now officially hooked!

As a Lush enabler, I must say Dream Cream is one of my favorite products ever...wish I could soak in it! I find myself buying things from Lush not because of its benefits (though they are plenty), but for the smell. I follow my nose! So many aromatherapy options. Can't wait for the Tea and Sympathy Bath Ballistic to arrive - I love combining my passions!

Yum!
