Since my last post I’ve been extremely busy with exams and qualifying as a Journalist!! It has been a while but I promise you have my full attention now and the blog posts will be at least once a week!
Starting off this August it is of course a mini Lush haul! Previous readers will know that Lush cosmetics is one of my favourite brands and not just because of the sweet smelling bath bombs but also what they represent. They make their opinions known on the fox hunt ban and are now currently supporting the England hen harriers.
The american cream conditioner smells like a vanilla milkshake blended with warm popcorn and as well as leaving my locks feeling soft it has tamed my curls during this humid weather period.
Seanik a must have for me in my bathroom, I have tried to many shampoo bars but this is the one that always has been running back. My old faithful. I have previously wrote a more detailed description of Seanik and how well it works so have a read if you want to know more!
I bought two bath bombs during this haul but got so excited when I got home I couldn’t resist using the Dragons Egg one. The second I bought was twilight a purple bath bomb with a cute star print! When it fizzles into the water a mix of purple and pink colours swirl around the water leaving you feeling like you are in a magical mermaid cave! There isn’t much of a smell and it doesn’t have any benefits to your skin. However there is a definitely a feel good factor which is good enough for me on a Friday night!
The lovely girls at Victoria Station Lush saw me glimpsing at the “Big” conditioner and watched me linger over it deciding if I should brave the price and try it out. They could clearly see that I was struggling to make the BIG decision and generously gave me a sample and boy I’m so glad they did! Not only was ‘big’ a big disappointment, but it left my hair feeling dry and bristly and clumped together in the strands. It was hard to break down into a smooth consistency and did really condition my hair at all. The jelly textured cube isn’t ideal for thick curly hair like mine and would benefit on thin hair that needs more fullness.
Herbalism is a facial exfoliator made from nettle, rosemary and almonds. It smells earthy and has a paste texture which makes is perfect for applying to the skin. It is not too gritty and and did in fact get rid of the spots on the forehead! I had to remember not to use it too often because thats when my skin started to get irritated again!
Today Lush released their new summer collection! So no doubt I will reviewing another lush haul next week!!
Keep your eyes peeled!
