My father texted me and told me that he was in Lush and asked if I wanted anything and well, you always need something when you go in there… right?
My dad is not the kind of bloke you would expect to love Lush Cosmetics, he does a lot of building work and is very ‘stereotypically manly’ but he, funnily enough, adores Snow Fairy and having the occasional bath bomb in his bath. So luckily for me, he is always in there as there isn’t one near where I live.
As he offered, I asked him to grab me a Popcorn Lip Scrub as mine was mega old and all dried up. The lil tub made of glass is £5.50 and one of the cheapest lip scrubs on the market. Peculiarly it removes all the dry skin which then seems to just disappear and the revolting dead skin is nowhere to be seen. Also, it abnormally doesn’t leave my lips sore like the other lip scrubs I have tested out.
The second thing on my list was a shaving cream I have wanted to try for donkey’s years, Ambrosia. It has got honey, oils and cocoa butter in it to help your razor blade glide while protecting your skin underneath. So hopefully it does just that. I’ll post a review once I have used it a couple of times. I decided to get the smallest size available priced at £4.95 because there is no point spending a tenner on it if I don’t like it. If you’re trying out something for the first time from Lush, or anywhere for that matter, I always recommend getting the smallest size and therefore usually the cheapest to see whether you like it before taking out a loan to help finance your beauty spending.
The last thing I asked my father to get me was the Valentine’s Day special bath bomb, Lover Lamp. I didn’t take it out to photograph because then I’ll have to use it soon and I like to keep my bath bombs in the little bags until I use them (I’m a rare kind of doesn’t display them I know). The bath bomb is £4.25 and is described on Lush’s website as an amorous organic cocoa butter that you should embrace to melt your heart and soften your skin. The reviews said it had a chocolate orange scent so naturally, I wanted it.
I also asked my dad to pick me up the sea salt shampoo called Big, which the website told me would make me feel like a mermaid. It’s a volumising shampoo made with seaweed and sea salt – I’ve used it once and it smells absolute shit. However, my hair felt even thicker and was more voluminous afterwards so we’ll see what I think of it when it comes down to when I write up my review.
My dad saw the shower gel It’s Raining Men and thought of me because he knows I like anything sweet scented. Its main ingredient is honey and dear god does it smell good.
