Lush Review

Here I am with yet another Lush review. My addiction has reached an unhealthy extreme and I fear that it’s not going to come to a halt any time soon. So bear with me. Or don’t. I’m sure there are plenty of other fun things to do that don’t include reading about bath products.

One day after lunching with my friend during her lunch hour (so gross having friends that work) I convinced her to go to Lush with me. It wasn’t too difficult talking her into it. The conversation went something like this:

Me: What are you going to do now?

Friend: Go back to work.

Me: Oh yeah I forgot about that.

Friend: What are you going to do?

Me: Probably go to Lush.

Friend: It’s just around the corner, right? I’ll come with you.

While I was there I picked up some necessary items. One of them was a tiny bottle of hair conditioner called American Cream. How could I not buy something with the word “American” in it? I am an American girl after all. Tom Petty told me so.

I purchased the smallest bottle of this stuff because I wasn’t sure if I would like it. I’d heard good things, but you can never be totally sure about hair products since everyone’s hair behaves differently. The bottles range in sizes of 100ml, 250ml, and 500ml. 28-American-Cream-resized

Lush claims that this is their medium strength conditioner (so basically it doesn’t help hair that is in dire need of nourishment or nasty scalp build up) that works on all normal hair types. It claims to have a strawberry and vanilla milkshake scent which I can kind of smell, but it also has sage mixed in and that causes it to smell a bit smoky. It’s a very interesting scent that actually lasts in my hair for a long time. I love that! Not sure if I’m going to buy the big size when my regular conditioner runs out though…

I also acquired a bath bomb called Butterball. I had been wanting to try this one foreverrrr. Butterball is smaller in size compared to a lot of other bath bombs that Lush offers. It’s not a super exciting color (white) and it doesn’t have glitter or Poprocks in it, but it has tons of cocoa butter and ylang ylang oil that floats out into your bath, enveloping you in a creamy dreamsicle. 31hXlOPylOL

The only downside to this bath bomb is that, because it’s so packed with oils and butters, your hair will become extremely greased up if it submerges itself in your creamy bath. I would suggest you keep your hair up for this one!

And lastly the little Rose Jam Bubbleroon. I got this in a Lush gift box that I bought for myself a while ago and it came with many other rosy smelling items. I was really confused as to what a Bubbleroon was. But the saleswoman told me that Bubbleroons are the same as their Bubble Bars which are essentially bubble bath in solid form. You use them by crumbling them under the bath water and in turn they make big, frothy bubbles.tumblr_m7bd6iPLZl1qc9nrx

The Bubbleroons not only do that, but in the middle (like a French macaroon) they have coconut oil that acts as “icing” to hold the two halves together. It gives you a really luxurious, bubbly time with the relaxing scent of rose and coconut fusing together. There are other Bubbleroon scents, but this is the only one I’ve tried.

Have you tried any fun, new beauty products?
