LUSH Starter Kit

8 Feb

Hello everyone! So I have a guide for you today. This is for those who are new to LUSH products with some advice, product recommendation and a general review of the products. I’m thinking about doing this sort of guide for other stores/brands such as Bath & Body Works, Maybelline and the list goes on. But today the focus is on LUSH.

About LUSH: So LUSH is a cosmetics store that offers bath, body, and skincare products that are fresh and handmade. Big claims for a company but they have followed through and are very ethical in their business practices.

The Products: LUSH is well-known for their soaps, bath bombs and bubble melts basically luxury in a bath. But have expanded their product line to shower gels, body moisturizers, massage bars, hair care, and lip care. I don’t take baths (my mom forbids it thinking that it wastes water) so this sort of limits my selection from LUSH. But out of all the products I’ve tried I love and once I get my own bath tub I would love to try their bath bombs and bubble melts.

Soaps: LUSH has many different kinds of soaps but since I love citrusy/fruity scents I’ve only picked out a few of my favourties which were the wintertime soaps. My favourites include Honey I Washed the Kids (even though it’s not fruity I still like it) and is one of LUSH’s top-selling soaps, Snowglobe only available during the wintertime and I stock up on it because it’s very refreshing; Bohemian another fresh lemon smelling soap, and Miranda which is a fruity soap with kiwis. All their soaps are bright colorful and work nicely into a lather.

Advice: You can tell the salesperson helping you how much of the soap that you want and they will cut up the price amount for you. You don’t have to spend more than you want to. (if the salesperson is very good at cutting soaps than they will be a range of  being a $1.00 over or under)

Massage Bar: My favourite out of them all is Each Peach (and two’s a pair!) due to the citrusy fresh scent. They have various other scents of vanilla, chocolate floral ones, and even glitter massage bars for those nights out. These last for an extremely long time and is one of my favourite body bars to use in the wintertime.

Advice: If you purchase two massage bars you can get a free tin to hold them in.

Facial Skincare: I have purchased a few of their face skincare because of the lack of extensive items used in their products. I have reviewed one of their products before which was Grease Lightening the review here.
The fresh face masks are most popular but don’t last long (about 6 weeks) before you have to chuck them. I have no space for these (since they have to be kept in the refridgerator) so I’ve never purchased one. The only mask that doesn’t have the quick expiry date is the Mask of Magniminty and it smells… very minty.

It is a great mask for those with oily skin and my skin loves it. Here’s a scary photo.

They also have cleansers which are pretty cool but some must be kept in the refridgerator.

For toners you got two choices a traditional liquid toner or have a spa-like experience with toner tabs. I like toner tabs as they feel really luxurious though my neck gets a little tired after using them. All you have to do for the toner tabs is to drop one in hot water and allow the steam in the water to have extra properties adding moisture, controlling oil, or just destressing your face. It’s a lot of fun and even though you might not get extra benefits it still feels extremely nice.

Tea Tree Toner Tab(Tea Tree Toner Tab buy HERE)

Advice: You can purchase a set of 7 toner tabs for $9.95CDN (a $3.70CDN saving!) only for the $1.95CDN line not the $2.95CDN line.

So all these products I would totally recommend to those starting off with LUSH you don’t have to go out right now and buy everything I mentioned in this post what is most important is knowing your preferences for scents and just picking up what you like. Hopefully I’ve made this post informative for those new to LUSH and I apologize for it being so long… there’s just so much products available at LUSH!

More Goodies

23 Dec

Hello everyone! More goodies today. I went to Lush yesterday and thought that I would show you what I got from there. I used to be a LUSH junkie but stopped because it got a bit expensive… kinda how my obsession with Bath & Body Works is waning right now… Anyways, I also go my order from Geek Chic Cosmetics in and reviews+swatches will be coming in the next few days.

From Geek Chic Cosmetics:

Eyeshadows from left to right are Don’t Blink (Timey Wimey/Doctor Who), Newb (Single Player), Ambassador (Big Damn Heroes/Firefly that didn’t happen).

And Lush goodies!

This includes an Each Peach massage bar, Mask of Magniminty, Angel’s Delight soap, 9 to 5 cleanser, small Tea Tree toner, and some toner tabs (which include Dream Steam, Token to the Gods x4, Vitamin C, Tea Tree x2, and Moon&Sun).

I can’t wait to start using these products and testing them out.

Spring is here!

18 Feb

I took a bunch of photos today… well I don’t know if it’s considered a lot but it a lot to me?? Either way here they are…

The stairs that I had to climb this morning… x8 = 94 stairs (yes that is exact) and a common sight that we all know and see everywhere. Anyone want to guess?

     

Yes. there were dandelions on the ground… taped… darn we can’t get rid of them so easily.

Since it’s spring what is spring preparation without a little Spring cleaning? So in order for me to do that I ended up going to get some organizational items and ended up with so much more.

 So the stuff that I bought as you can tell is a panda garbage can, razors, soap from Rocky Mountain Soap Company, Clay mask from Botanics, a kid-proof lighter, Oh Henry!, 2 pepperoni sticks, EOS shaving lotion, organizational holders, Got2B Guardian Angel Heat Protectorant, Botanics Skin Brightening Cleanser, and a PC Blue Menu Blueberry and Acai Smoothie. Yup, lots of stuff. I’m going to do a review on the Smoothie later when I drink it with the rest of my family. ^_^

That is basically it for today… going to do a bunch more work mainly Chemistry and watching Youtube videos but yeah, until next time.

Trespassors stop!

4 Feb

Been through plenty of places on campus today… lots of stairs and walking… very active today. The first few things that I did today was attend a job fair so that I can score myself a summer job. I want to work a lot this summer to get the finances to go to Korea next summer. ^_^ I’ll do my best to get to that goal! Lots of interesting jobs out there.

Classes were interesting as usual and in the end I ended up looking at homework right after. Got a bunch of nutrition done, re-learning about the digestive system and how food gets digested. That and I have decided to get some soaps from the Rocky Mountain Soap Company. I love their Lip butter which is a great moisterizer and I have decided on four soaps. They are the Citrus Soother Soap, Avocado Facial Soap, Grapefruits Soap, and the Green Tea and Cucumber soap. Here’s a photo of one of the soaps.

 I hope that they are very cleansing and smell nice. ^_^ Glad that they are a lot cheaper than LUSH soaps. Two thumbs up for that only $4.99 while LUSH is like $10+ per soap.

I stayed behind and watched the film Toxic Trespass and it was an eye-opener! Made me feel like I was really sucking in so many environmental factors such as mercury and even pesticides. From 1 million tonnes of toxins in the air 10 years ago to over 400 million tonnes of toxins in the air now. O.O!!! SHOCKING!!!

Other then that… I will end today’s post with photos of art on campus.

      

I hope that everyone had an interesting day as well. ^_^
