Where my money went

Lush & The Body Shop

As you can see on the image, that’s were my money went. I just had to go to The Body Shop to smell on their new Sweet Lemon products. So of course, the Sweet Lemon Whip Body Lotion had to be bought! While I was there I decided to join their club, so I got a discount, a sample of the Aloe Soothing Day Cream (it doesn’t smell good at all, it’s like a combination of exhaust gas and car oil!), a sample of the LOVE ETC fragrance, a free makeup consulting and a “buy 3 pay for 2″ deal. Not sure if it was the smartest thing to do since I hardly buy anything at TBS. Oh well.

I also got a package from Lush in the mail. I only have a tiny piece left of my all time favorite face cleanser Baby Face, so I ordered a new one. I also got Mask of Magnaminty cleansing mask, it smells lovely! (I’ve already tried it and I really like it!) At last I got a free sample of the Therapy massage bar. I’ve read that it’s really great for very dry skin, I’m looking forward to try it out!

Annoying

My white H&M boots that I totally love!

Things that bothers me today

  • I’ve been waiting for the Sweet Japanese Girl cleanser to be re-stocked at Lush for weeks. Today I emailed them to ask when that would happen. Their reply was that it expired and that they won’t sell it in the future. It sucks! I wanted to try it out! (It was nice of them to give me tips about what I could use instead; Ocean Salt and Ultra Bland.)
  • The snow, the cold. I’m sick of it.
  • My car doesn’t work. My parents came to pick it up earlier tonight. We had to push it and then run with it before it started. I was hoping to drive to the book sale tomorrow but I guess it was a sign that I should walk instead.
  • Companies that emails me about a link exchange. They are offering a link on their resources page (that’s not accessible on their front page, or even linked or mentioned anywhere on their site)  while I should place their link in my sidebar. Come on! I’m not that stupid! Fucktards! I hope that no one falls for their “amazing offer”.
  • Google Buzz. Need I say anymore? There should be an option to disable it!

More from Lush

It is time for another review post from my last Lush haul!

From the left:

  1. Ice Blue
  2. Honey I washed the Kids
  3. Herbalism (the green thing)
  4. Schampoo Bar Tin
  5. Aromaco Deo (sample)

Reviews

  1. Ice Blue: This is my absolute favorite so far! Gosh this smells so darn good! I don’t think I could live without it! I also love the color of it. Both the smell and the color reminds me of a soap my grandmother used to have when I was young. I use Ice Blue in the shower. 5/5
  2. Honey I washed the Kids
  3. : It smells good, but not as good as Ice Blue, so I only use it when I wash my hands, but it is lovely since you really can feel how clean you get with this soap! But when I look at it, I always get cravings for chocolate since it looks like nougat. That’s a bad thing! 4/5.

  4. Herbalism: This one really stinks in the beginning! When I got it I realized that I wouldn’t be able to use the whole thing within 3 months so I sold half of it. Herbalism is a sludgy green face cleansing paste. I don’t use it everyday since it dries out my skin but if you guys have oily skin, I think this one would be really good for you. I haven’t noticed any changes in my skin after using this, since I don’t use it everyday I believe, but I still feel refreshed after using it, and it is fun to get a green muddy face when using it! 3/5.
  5. Schampoo Bar Tin: There is not much to say about a jar, but it is perfect for my Baby Face cleanser.
  6. Aromaco Deo: When ordering I got this deodorant sample for free. I found it hard to use since you can’t really feel how much you put on. When I tried it I think I got too much under my arms. Sure it was a good smell but it was way too strong for me. Even if I washed myself twice the smell didn’t go away and it dried out my skin a little bit. I didn’t feel like using it again. 1/5.

I hope everyone had a great Easter!

Baby Face and Skin Drink

lush

Last week I went with Maia to the nearest mall to do some shopping. Among the things I bought I got these from Lush (fresh handmade cosmetics – all natural ingredients), and I just have to review them:

- Baby Face: Natural butter bar for conveniently effective cleansing.
- Skin Drink: Rich moisturizer to refresh and rehydrate dry, parched skin.

I was amazed by the Baby Face cleanser (it melts when it comes in contact with your skin)! This is the first cleanser I have tried that doesn’t leave my face like a super dry tense desert. I use it everyday as a make-up remover. The smell is quite nice as well, fresh and clean.
Points: 5/5

I was a bit skeptic when I tried the Skin Drink moisturizer for the first time. I didn’t really like the smell of it, it doesn’t smell really bad but not good either. It takes a while for it to sink in since it is very rich and thick, but my face really needs it so I mainly use it as a night cream. But it does the job really well! It leaves soft and smooth skin. The only thing that bothers me is the smell, but you learn to live with it. You have to think about that it is all natural!
Points: 4/5

It was my first time trying out products from Lush but I got a really good impact so I’m definetly going to try out some of their other products in the future.
