It’s Been a While Lush

Guess who made a sneaky Lush purchase online and then got super excited when it finally arrived after stalking the postman for about a week…….If you guessed me then you would be absolutely correct! *smiles excitedly bc new smellies & Lush goodness*

After quite a while browsing their huge range, I picked out 4 products that I thought I would really like and so far I’m not disappointed! I got a “Unicorn Horn” which is from their Valentine’s Day collection, a “Dragon’s Egg” bath bomb, their “Celestial facial” moisturiser and also “Tangled” which is a hot oil hair treatment specifically for knotted, frizzy hair which admittedly I have been struggling with lately.

Unicorn Horn (£4.25) – As you can see from the picture this is a very colourful one, attractive to the eyes but also to the nose with its sweet lavender smell. According to the website this bubble bar has Neroli oil in it which is known to increase serotonin levels in the brain leaving us feeling much more relaxed and cheery after a long soak 🙂

Dragon’s Egg (£3.50) – Being honest, I picked this bath bomb purely because of the name. It sounded pretty awesome and after using it today I can say I loved it! It has quite a sweet lemon-y smell which reminded me of those hard boiled lemon sweets you can get and was pleasantly surprised to find out that this somewhat bland looking bath bomb had an orange centre, much like a real egg, leaving my bath a golden orange colour with lots of bubbles!

Tangled (£6.50) – I really can’t wait to try this one out. This product stood out to me when browsing online because I have very tangled hair at the moment and I just can’t seem to get rid of it! I can imagine it will be hard to get this oil out of my hair afterwards but I am excited to try it.

Celestial (£12.95) – Pictured below is my favourite of the products I bought, the Celestial moisturiser. It smells heavenly and feels so smooth and silky on my face without being oily. I love it!

I hope you have enjoyed this little Lush post as much as I have enjoyed receiving these products! What would you personally recommend from their collection? Let me know what you think 🙂

Haul Post #1

Guess who decided to mix Christmas shopping for my mom and friends with buying some new make up products for myself, *hint hint* it was me.

With Christmas fast approaching (15 days to go now! The excitement!) it made me realize just how unprepared I was present – wise for my friends and family. I also realised I had run out of some make up products, mainly foundation, concealer & primer. So essentially I had lost my face (a bit like in that episode of Doctor Who where the TVs stole the peoples’ faces… although maybe not quite as dramatic). So I decided to order a few things from boots.ie and etsy.com!

Here are some of the things I bought:

Having wanted some Real Techniques brushes for a long time now I kinda went crazy buying them. I got the Duo Fibre set (the white ones), the Eye Starter Set (the purple ones) and a foundation brush (the gold one).

Benefit’s “How to Look the Best at Everything” complexion kit which includes sample sizes of their primer, foundation, 2 shades of concealer and a face powder. There’s 3 different sets to choose from to suit different skin tones and I went for the lightest one. I also picked a sample size of their “Bad Gal” mascara which was €6.50 as I reckoned it’d go a long way and didn’t want to spend €23 on the full sized product!

Here’s the start of what I’m getting my mom for Christmas. Really hoping she doesn’t stumble across my blog or there goes the element of surprise! Both of the shows – Mary Poppins and Lord Of The Dance I will be attending with her and I’m v excited, especially for Mary Poppins! I can’t wait!

The last thing I received in the post yesterday I cannot show to you guys yet because it is a surprise for someone. But I can tell you that I got it on Etsy.com. More details about this mystery gift will be revealed probably after Christmas.

I’m really excited to use these products/brushes and to wrap those gifts for my mom and give them to her on Christmas day! Let me know in the comments if you’ve got any of these items and what you think.
