I’ve had products from lush in the past, such as when the store first opened in my town yeeears ago, and for Christmas and such. But for years and year, the initial hit of scent gave me a headache and set my allergies off.
I stayed away for years, and now, looking back, I feel like I’ve missed out on A LOT! I slowly got over the sneezing fits, and after watching multiple Lush hauls on Youtube, I really wanted to try somethings out for myself.
I first started with a Christmas present of my boyfriend, as that was Superbalm (for his dry scalp). I went into the store, intending to look around… and that’s when terror struck – I don’t know anything about ANYTHING! What is this for? What does this do? It this any good for my skin type? Will this work on my hair? So I grabbed the tin and ran.
I tried to return many times before. I wanted bath bombs, soaps, face masks and every type of “bar” you could think of! But I didn’t want to ask an assistant, and everything I’d researched online had escaped me!
So I put off my Lush haul and carried on researching and watching endless hauls to curb my craving.
This was all until a couple of weeks ago when my best friend, Lucy came back from travelling having lost all her cosmetics and needed to replace them. This was my time. “She knows everything about Lush,” I thought, “She can tell me.”
So we talked about a few things, what I’d seen, what I was interested in getting, getting her opinion. And BOOM! as soon as I walked in the shop, all we’d talked about had already left my head. The endless choice is just so overwhelming – and I just can’t afford to buy the whole shop.
So I went to a lovely sales assistant (I didn’t catch her name) and she gave me a few tips on items that would suit me. I told her about my skin type and what I wanted from a product and what type of product I wanted. And these are what I ended up with!
Out of a number of products she suggested would be best for me, I chose to buy the Full of Grace facial serum. If you’ve seen my Everyday skincare routine, you’ll know I have dry skin, so I love to keep it hydrated. One of the main ways I do this is at night. The Full of Grace serum is a solid bar which you can either warm up in your hands or directly on your face.
The next product is something my best friend pointed out and suggested I try, and that is the Dream Steam toner tab. If you’ve never used one of these before, all you do is pop it in a bowl full of hot water, put your face over the bowl and drape a towel over your head and let the steam get deep into your pores.
