Lush haul

I realised a few days ago that over the last couple of weeks I've accumulated several Lush products and samples, so I thought I'd do a haul posts to show you what I'll be trying out. 




























A couple of weeks ago, despite waking up a bit poorly that morning due to starting some new medication, I headed over to Nottingham to meet up with some other bloggers.  We had a lovely meal in Zizzi's and a good chat and then the others all headed off into the town for some shopping but I unfortunately headed home due to not feeling so good.  We were all given a goody bag and one of the lovely things I found tucked in mine was a bag with a few samples from Lush.  I think I've included the correct samples here but there is a small chance I've got some of the little pot samples mixed up. 

I was very happy to see a nice sized chunk of Honey I washed the kids.  I did have some of this several years ago and I know it's lovely.  I haven't opened this yet but if I remember correctly it looks like a creme caramel desert (I love them!) and I believe smells like toffee or honey or something similar.  Next up there was a small sample of Happy hippy shower gel.  I've tried a couple of Lush shower gels before but not this one.  This is grapefruit scented so I would imagine this would make for a zesty invigorating shower.  Lastly, this one doesn't have a sticker on the top but if I remember correctly the little bag it was in said Ultrabland, which as you can see from the top photo I also have a full size of.  



























As you'll know if you've read my recent posts, or if you follow me on Twitter, last week I headed up to Meadowhall in Sheffield for a bloggers breakfast which included a trip to Lush for a little bit of VIP treatment.  We made our own face masks, but this isn't included in the picture as I forgot to take it out of the fridge, which is where you're supposed to store their face masks.

Lush very kindly let us take away a cleanser and toner each and I opted for Tea tree water toner and Ultrabland cleanser.  


























I'm sure I mentioned this on my blog recently (although I can't work out which post it might have been on) but I was a mystery shopper for Lush and unfortunately this year they made the decision to stop the scheme.  As a thank you to all the mystery shoppers they credited our mail order accounts with a final £25 (we used to get £30 for each mystery shop).
I only actually ordered two products, but because of some kind of problem somewhere along the way I've ended up with a few extras.  After really liking my Emotional Brilliance lipstick in Believe I decided to order another one in Bubbly.  After using it a couple of times previously I also decided to order Aqua Marina cleanser.  

I placed the order on a Friday and then went away for a week from the following Wednesday. When I got back my order still hadn't arrived so I contacted Lush to tell them it had gone missing.  They were great and arranged for another order to be sent out to me by next day courier.  When I got home from nipping out my order was waiting for me but when I opened it all that was in there was the lipstick and a sample of Herbalism cleanser.  So I contacted them again saying the order had arrived but my cleanser was missing.

Then later on that afternoon there was a knock at the door which was a courier with my full order including an additional full size It's raining men shower gel (to say sorry for the missing order) and a sample of Carrot soap.  It turned out that what had happened was there was an issue with one of the ingredients for the lipstick and my first order had been sent in two parts.  The first part containing the cleanser has obviously gone missing in the post and the second part containing the lipstick took 7 working days to arrive and just happened to arrive the same day as my complete replacement order.  

Lush kindly told me to keep the part of my original order that did actually arrive so I now have two liquid lipsticks in the same shade.  I'm not sure what to do with the spare one yet but might hold a Twitter giveaway for it.  

I probably won't review the samples (except maybe the soaps) as there's not really enough product there, but reviews of the full size products will follow in the future.

Are you a fan of Lush?

  3. Everytime my dad comes to visit me, he always says something along the lines of "There was a time when you wouldn't walk past a Lush without going in!" but in recent years I haven't really checked them out. I love the looks of the little Emotional Brilliance range though :) xxx
