Mini LUSH Haul!

So one of the perks of going to school in a different city than where you’re from is that you can go to stores that your hometown doesn’t haveA My mall at home doesn’t have LUSH but the mall close to my school does. So expectedly, I freak out pretty much every time I go to LUSH here. Haha I was also really excited yesterday because I remembered that some of their holiday items had come out! Here is what all I got! 🙂

Secret Santa- $9.95

This set includes a 2.5 oz Snowcake Soap and a 3.1 oz Li’l LUSH Pud Bath Bomb. The Snowcake Soap is described as “smells like delicious almond icing off of your Christmas cake: feels like almond mousse on your skin. The Bath Bomb is described as “looking like a pudding, smells like a pudding, fizzes like a spicy Bath Bomb.” These are all full sized products and smell super good! 🙂 This would be the perfect, inexpensive gift for anyone!

Satsumo Santa Bath Bomb- $5.95
On the site the description said this has a “zippy scent of mandarin oil and inspires merriment in the midst of dark, winter months.” To me it smells like the candy Smarties but I’m excited to use it!

Check out the video below to see how a bath bomb works!

I’m Loving Soap Scrubs!!

I am now returning home after being in Charleston, SC for a weekend! I stayed in the Isle of Palms Wild Dunes Resort and it was so nice! The scenery was amazing and everything was super peaceful and relaxing! The beach house I stayed in had an amazing bath soap that was made with oatmeal to be used as a soap scrub! Using it was like taking a shower with a back scratcher; it felt soooo good. haha I’m not sure where you could get it because it is a hotel brand, but it was called Destination Oatmeal Bath Bar. However, I did find it on this site: http://www.gilchristsoames.com/view_product/1842/537/Destination_Earth_Jet_Settrade%3B_Travel_Pack and it comes in a package with other shower products for $10! Now I am obsessed with finding another soap scrub that will compare to the one from the resort. Here is what I’ve found so far!

Soap Scrubs from Lush! (The descriptions are from the website.)

Porridge Soap Lush $6.95- 3.5oz

Ideal for sensitive skin; irresistible to everyone else. Oats are soothing for the skin, while orange juice is refreshing. Rise and shine with some delicious porridge. When the oats mix with hot water, they create a calming milk that softens your entire body. The oatmeal also exfoliates your skin and scrubs the dirt away.

   
Sugar Babe- Soft-centered Sugar Babe $4.95- 3.5oz

Sugar Babe is a gentle alternative to the intensity of Sugar Scrub. It’s scented with perfume made from ylang flowers and mimosa blossom, so that we can all smell sensational, too.When applied topically, coconut oil can reduce the symptoms associated with psoriasis and eczema, as it gives a natural balance to the skin.
