I went shopping in Exeter a couple of days ago and popped into Lush, we don't have a Lush in my home town, so it is nice to go into a shop and smell everything in person rather than go off blog reviews and videos. Here is what I bought:
Snow Fairy shower gel, Cup Cake face mask, Pow Wow sugar lip scrub and the sales assistant popped in a sample of Northern Lights soap.
First up is the Cup Cake face mask, these are fresh so I put this straight into the fridge when I got home. I used this for the first time last night and it felt so good putting it on having taken it out of the fridge, very cooling and refreshing. I am surprised as a little of this mask goes a long way and covered my whole face and neck. It smells of chocolate but not in a sickly sweet way which I like. After ten mins I washed this off and my skin was soft, this is the first fresh mask I have tried from them, so as long as I can use this before it expires I would buy this again.
Next I tried their new sugar lip scrub which is part of their Christmas products which are new for 2011. This one is called Pow Wow and it contains popping candy. I have used their lip scrubs before and even though they cost £4.75, my last pot lasted such a long time. I know this product is glorified sugar, but I like it, it helps my lips feel smooth and it gets rid of any dead/flakey skin. I tend to use the scrubs at night and slather on lip balm before bed.
Unfortunately, I couldn't feel any of the popping candy on my lips, but the scent is wonderfully fresh and zesty, reminds me of lemon and lime sweets.
I had to get the famous Snow Fairy shower gel, I got the biggest bottle 500g which costs £9.95. By far, this is the most I have ever spent on one shower gel, but the bottle is big and will (hopefully) last me a while. I love the smell of the gel, this one is sickly sweet and might be too much for some, this one reminds me of those pink shrimp sweets. I love the blue/purple glittery bits on the gel, these don't transfer to the skin, but hey it makes the gel look pretty in the bottle. I have only ever used this as a shower gel, but I think I will try it as a shampoo too.
The sales assistant also gave me a sample of Northern Lights soap which I haven't tried yet.
Also special carrier bags for the festive season
