Lush Haul

I LOVE Lush so much , so whenever i get the chance to go i am extremely excited. I only used to get bubble bars and soap from there because i was nervous about any other product. This time around i broke out of the comfort zone completely to try new things!I will start with the The Comforter Bubble Bar this is $10.95, so it is a bit pricey however its huge ! I can usually get 4 Baths out of it so its worth it to me.Also, this turns your bath water a purpley pink color!This product is Vegan (along with many other products by Lush). The ingredients are "Sodium Bicarbonate , Cream of Tartar (Tartaric acid) , Sodium Laureth Sulfate , Lauryl Betaine , Fragrance , Titanium Dioxide ,Cocamide DEA , Bergamot Oil (Citrus bergamia) , Cassis Absolute (Ribes nigrum) , Cypress Oil (Cupressus sempervirens) ,*Limonene , *Linalool , D&C Red No. 27 Aluminium Lake , D&C Red No. 33 ". Next is Yuzu & Cocoa Bubbleroon Bubble bar $6.25.This breaks into two pieces , as you can see. I love this one , it smells just like coconuts and vanilla mmmm. The featured ingredient is grapefruit, but i don't really smell that at all. Cool tip : The more you can squish a bubble bar the fresher it is!!Also, The ingredients are "Sodium Bicarbonate , Cream of Tartar (Potassium bitartrate) ,Sodium Laureth Sulfate , Extra Virgin Coconut Oil (Cocos nucifera)Lauryl Betaine , Shea Butter (Butyrospermum parkii) , Perfume ,Cocoa Absolute (Theobroma cacao) , Tonka Absolute (Dipteryx odorata) , Grapefruit Juice (Citrus paradisi) , Bergamot Oil (Citrus Aurantium bergamia) , Cocamide DEA , PEG-6 Caprylic / Capric Glycerides & PEG60 Almond Glycerides , *Coumarin , *Limonene ,*Linalool , Titanium Dioxide , FD&C Orange No. 
4."Next i got MMM Melting Marshmallow Moment Bath Melt $7.95, I split this into four pieces. The scent is so sweet and sugary and makes the bath water very rich ,which i love. I don't smell marshmallow to much , its more of just a sweet scent to me , but Nick does smell the marshmallow. It all depends what you smell from person to person.This gives the water a nice soft pink color too. The ingredients are "Sodium Bicarbonate , Citric Acid , Cocoa Butter (Theobroma cacao) , Laureth 4 , Almond Oil (Prunus dulcis) , Water (Aqua) ,Chamomile Powder (Anthemis nobilis) , Marshmallow Powder (Althaea officinalis) , Marigold Powder (Calendula officinalis) ,Synthetic Musk , Benzyl Benzoate , Fragrance , Propylene Glycol ,D&C Red No. 33 , FD&C Red No. 4 , FD&C Red No. 27" Then I ventured into bath bombs, i got Twilight Bath Bomb $6.25 This thing is massive and i have not tried it yet. I have tried breaking it into two pieces but it just crumbles, so i am saving it for a day where i take a long bath so i don't waste it. This smells so amazing and sweet, but if you don't like sweets that much this is definitely not for you because its a sweet that is almost ever powering. This also turns your water pink and blue !! The ingredients are "Sodium Bicarbonate , Citric Acid , Cream of Tartar (Tartaric acid) ,Sodium Laureth Sulfate , Lavender Oil (Lavandula augustifolia) ,Benzoin Resinoid (Styrax tonkinensis pierre) , Tonka Absolute (Dipteryx odorata) , Ylang Ylang Oil (Cananga odorata) , Lauryl Betaine , Cocamide DEA , *Coumarin , *Linalool , Fragrance ,Propylene Glycol , FD&C Red No. 4 , D&C Red No. 33 , D&C Red No. 27 , FD&C Blue No. 1 , Iridescent Glitter (Polyethylene terephthalate and Acrylates copolymer)" Next is something i have never gotten before, it is The Hair Doctor Hair Treatment $15.95 now this stuff is amazing !!!! It is a
scalp treatment that you leave in your hair and rinse out. It has to be refrigerated and only lasts 3 weeks in the tub it comes in ( because of natural ingredients and no preservatives). This has peppermint in it so it makes your scalp feel cold and refreshed! The founder of Lush actually went to school to study hair and the scalp, so he knows what he is doing. It smells amazing , its great for all hair types, great on flakey scalps, and leaves your hair feeling amazing ! The ingredients are "Water (Aqua) , Irish Moss Powder (Chondrus crispus) , Fullers Earth , Cetearyl Alcohol , Coconut Oil (Cocos nucifera) , Jojoba Oil (Simmondsia chinensis) , Almond Oil (Prunus dulcis) ,Peppermint Oil (Mentha piperita) , Soya Lecithin , Glycerine ,Lanolin , Cetrimide , Benzyl Alcohol , Propylene Glycol , Glycerl Stearate & Peg - 100 Stearate , *Eugenol , *Limonene , *LinaloolPerfume , Methylparaben , Propylparaben" Last i just got a sample of Big Shampoo $26.95.Lush is great with samples , so if you want to try something out just ask them! Everyone raves about this product , so i got it to try because i though what could be so amazing about it, but honestly it is hands down the best shampoo i have ever used in my life!!! It leaves your hair ridiculously soft and shiny due to the salt and seaweed. The smell is a hit or miss with everyone , i actually like the smell a lot but many people hate it. Best part about it is that it leaves flat hair volumized without any other products or blow drying ! I am going to go back and get the full size soon, it is a little expensive but your don't use it everyday, and when you do you don't use that much. The ingredients are" Sea Salt (Sodium Chloride) , Sodium Laureth Sulfate , Fresh Organic Lemon Infusion (Citrus limonum) , Fresh Sea Water (Aqua) , Bladderwrack Seaweed Infusion (Fucus gardneri) ,Cocamide DEA , Lauryl Betaine , Fresh Organic Lime Juice (Citrus aurantifolia) , Extra Virgin Coconut Oil (Cocos nucifera) , Neroli Oil (Citrus amara) , Mandarin Oil (Citrus nobilis) , Vanilla Absolute (Vanilla planifolia) , Orange Flower Absolute (Citrus Aurantium amara) , *Limonene , Methyl Ionone ,"

Overall , i really love Lush , they are natural , the ingredients are either fresh or safe synthetics, they are against animal cruelty and not only are the against it , they are fighting it ! They used recycled plastic for their packaging and all of their paper around the soap and the bag they give you to take home can be used for compost.Visit their website for more info ( i linked the products) LOVE, LOVE, LOVE. I hope you have a great day !!
