LUSH Haul - July 2015 (Part 2)

Hi Peeps! So I went to Lush again on 12th July 2015.
This time round, I'm going to make sure I get that Body Lotion! Ha ha...
Did I get any in the end? Read on to find out...

 Ultrablast Toothy Tabs
Verdict: Didn't like it. I guess I'm used to my standard toothpaste which is from Sensodyne.
Says this on Lush's website:
Sparkle Toothy Tab is a dose of sweet vanilla flavor with a hint of Sicilian lemon and grapefruit, and makes for a very effective palate cleanser. Crunch up Sparkle between your chompers and brush, brush, brush for refreshing foam with a hint of spice, thanks to stimulating black pepper oil. You’ll be left with a smile so brilliant and squeaky clean, your dentist won’t believe their eyes.

Tea Tree Toner Tab
I've yet to use this. I intend to use this to steam my face. Thereafter, put on the Mask of Magnaminty on my face to draw out the impurities.

Ro's Argan Body Conditioner
Remember I said previously that I hate the waxy feel of this product? This product & I, we have a love-hate relationship. In the end, I got it as I want the smoothness of my skin w/o having to do it on a daily basis. Hence, I ditched the idea of getting a Body Lotion and got a Body Conditioner instead! Now, I'll just have to train myself to get used to the waxy feel... =(

Enzymion
I got this as I applied it on Sunday morning and found it to be really light and easily absorbed into my face. 3 hours later, hardly any oil on my face. Love it! Hence, I got a small tub of it.

Honey Trap
Turns out to be one of Lush's bestseller. Sweet Wild Orange Oil, Vanilla Absolute, Honey, Peppermint Oil, just to name a few ingredients. Lightly scented.
Says this on Lush's website:
Our product inventors worked hard in the labs, experimenting with all sorts of different flavors before they landed on this seductive honey lip balm. Honey Trap is filled with toning sweet orange and cooling peppermint to soothe dry, chapped lips. Rich honey moisturizes and melted white chocolate is part of that delectable flavor. After all that chocolate tasting and kissing we did in the name of innovation, we think Honey Trap can certainly be considered our most delicious lip balm to date. It's a hard life we have here at LUSH.

None of Your Beeswax
For Vegans. Not scented.
Now you might ask why I need TWO lip balm. Well, for days when I do not put on lipstick, I'll go for Honey Trap. For days when I do put on lipstick, I'll go for None of Your Beeswax! ^^
Says this on Lush's website:
You may not realize it, but our vegan customers can appreciate how difficult it is to find lip products made without beeswax or honey. We invented this lip balm for them! A light, citrus blend that leaves your lips beautifully soft, None of Your Beeswax tastes of lemon, mandarin and vanilla. If that wasn’t fantastic enough, we add extra virgin coconut oil, murumuru butter and carnauba wax (as an alternative to beeswax) to keep your lips soft and supple. It's so delicious that all the non-vegans have been using it, too.

Volcano Foot Mask
Bought this eon years back. Can't remember if I liked it. Got it again!
Says this on Lush's website:
To avoid eruptions of noxious fumes, and for the softest soles imaginable - slather on our thick kaolin and pumice Volcano foot mask to draw out deep down dirt and slough off rough skin. We raided the produce bin and added fresh papaya and lemon juices to cleanse, as well as tomatoes, potatoes and anti-fungal essential oils to deodorize against odor and foot gremlins. After putting up your feet for ten minutes, massage off using the pumice blend to scrub off dead skin cells and you’ll be left with soft, lovely and smell-free feet.

Fair Trade Foot Lotion
Gave it a whiff, I'm sold!
Verdict: I've been using it faithfully every night before going to bed. I noticed that the cracks on my soles are less obvious. Even J said it's softer when I asked him to take a look!
Says this on Lush's website:
Put your feet up and treat them fairly with our pinkest, perkiest, and mintiest foot lotion. Our restorative cream for feet is made with mega moisturizing organic Fair Trade cocoa butter. An added double dose of revitalizing spearmint and peppermint makes sore feet feel cool and helps to relieve aches and pains after being stuck in shoes. Plus, we’ve added soothing arnica and marigold herbs to take away the weariness and get your feet ready for another run in the rat race. Treat your feet fairly and slather on generously at the end of a long day.

Lullaby Shampoo Bar
I asked the SA for a shampoo which I can use twice daily and she got me this! She said it's meant for kids so that's how gentle it is. I gave it a whiff and I'm sold AGAIN! I did get a tin for storage.
Verdict: I wash my hair twice a day on a daily basis. I usually use my Nioxin Shampoo in the mornings and Lullaby Shampoo in the nights. I noticed that Lullaby gives my hair a very clean feel.
Says this on Lush's website:
A calming combination of chamomile, ground almonds and oat milk to gently soothe your scalp. Let the Tunisian sourced neroli oil raise your spirits - it's proven to aid the release of serotonin (the happy hormone). Lavender oil helps to relax and balance, making this bar ideal for children two years and up! 

Sweetie Pie Jelly
Got this just cos it smells nice with cherries
Verdict: Smells wonderful. I used some to wash my undergarments! Love how wobbly it is...
Says this on Lush's website:
Our sweetest shower jelly is also our best-seller! Between the fruity fragrance, the iridescent glitter that leaves a sparkle on your skin, and the seaweed base that leaves your skin softened and refreshed, it’s irresistible. And while we know our blackcurrant and sour cherry wobbler smells good enough to eat, we recommend you curb your cravings and hop in the shower and wash with Sweetie Pie instead. Smooth it all over your body (and your hair too!) for a sweet yet sophisticated cleansing experience.

And of course, I got to have some soap in my bag...

Parsley Porridge
Sandalwood Oil, Thyme Oil, Tea Tree Oil, Fresh Parsley, just to name a few ingredients.
Says this on Lush's website:
For a super squeaky clean, hop in the shower and lather up with Parsley Porridge soap. It’s power-packed with dirt-busting ingredients like fresh parsley, finely ground oatmeal, thyme, tea tree oil and aloe gel. Suitable for your whole body, its creamy lather gently exfoliates to help remove dead skin, while keeping it soothed and cool. This nourishing green machine will keep spotty or disturbed skin cleansed and clear. Use it in the shower or leave it by the kitchen sink for a blast of herbal refreshment.

Honey I Washed the Kids
Funny name. Bought this mainly for its honey. ^^
Says this on Lush's website:
Honey I Washed the Kids is one of our best-selling soaps because it’s simply irresistible. People who fully intended to walk past a LUSH shop find themselves unable to resist its sweet caramel fragrance. You’ll inhale, drool, pick up a big chunk and immediately want to wash yourself all over with it. It’s so gentle, buttery and scrumptious you’ll have a hard time keeping it to yourself. The honey water and aloe are so softening and moisturizing, you can use our toffee-scented sensation on the whole family.

Sandstone
Got this as I love lemon scent and I asked the SA which one I can get other than Bohemian!
Says this on Lush's website:
The exfoliating citrus and sandy one. On the glorious beaches of Rio de Janeiro, stunning Brazilian babes, and their mothers, mix up tanning oil with the fine sand and scrub their backsides to make them as smooth as silk. Sandstone soap has a layer of sand and the seductive scent of a caipirinha cocktail. 

Got a sample of Roots which is a hair treatment and Big which is a shampoo which gives your hair volume. Watched quite a few YouTube videos on Roots and can't wait to give it a go!

Total damage? Close to 300 bucks!

Don't like to read it? Watch it then!
