Midnight Massage Bar x2 – jasmine and vanilla, from Christmas 2012.
From Dusk To Dawn Massage Bar (another in stash at Boyfriend’s) – wild orange and bitter lemon, from Valentine’s 2013.
Skincare (and a bit of haircare)!
9 to 5 cleanser – ylang ylang and orchid creamy cleanser. So soft smelling and feels great on your skin.
Eau Roma toner – lavender and rose water, essentially. Very refreshing, and great at catching the last few bits of make up (I use this on a cotton pad if I smudge eyeliner or lipstick while applying make up in the morning).
R&B hair moisturiser – jasmine scented hair tamer. This stuff is great – smoothes my curls and waves with no crunchiness or stickiness!
Brazened Honey face mask – honey and herbs in an exfoliating fresh face mask. The smell is not quite to my taste, but it has a great effect on dull skin.
Catastrophe Cosmetic face mask – magic blueberry face mask. So soothing and wonderful for dry or sore skin.
Flowers Barrow – heady, blowsy flowers and earth on a high summer’s day. Makes me feel mystical and not just a little bit nostalgic.
Lust – Wow, jasmine. Jasmine overload. Very raw and powerful – not an everyday perfume, but perfect for moments when you want all the confidence you can get. Light hand required!
Vanillary – Soft, comforting vanilla, like flour on your nose and a tray of just-baked biscuits.
Tuca Tuca – My latest addition, thanks to lovely Miranda! Dreamy, childlike violets – beautiful combined with Vanillary for a sweet, innocent scent, or with Flowers Barrow for a dangerous, magical Avalon feel.
(Just realised I forgot to include my tiny vial of B Scent, which is soooo good. Lemon and fennel and something that goes magic on my skin.)
Samples of Enzymion moisturiser and Jackie Oates pigment. I’m trying these as a replacement for foundation (with built in SPF 30), and while I’m very very impressed with the colour match, they don’t leave me with the matte finish I prefer.
Flying Fox Shower Gel – Lust-scented shower gel, again with a hell of a jasmine kick. Incredible for PMT days and as a general mood booster.
Dirty Shower Gel – Minty, herby loveliness, but not quite a replacement for my beloved Ice Blue. Delicious in its own right, though!
Rub Rub Rub Shower Scrub – This has the same scent as Sakura bath bombs used to have, mimosa and orange blossom, plus it’s bright blue, my favourite colour for drinks and beauty products! A really gorgeous sea salt scrub – and you can vary the roughness by the amount of water you use.
Ro’s Argan Body Conditioner – Oh yum. This is moisturiser you use in the shower, and rinse off. So, so very good. It smells like Rose Jam bubbleroon, and is basically delicious. Leaves me with such soft skin!
So White bath bomb x3 (the ones in bubblewrap) – appley scented excellence from Christmas 2012. I had one left in the stash, but Boyfriend magically produced two more for my birthday!
Space Girl bath bomb x2 – more Boyfriend-y birthday presents! These smell like Parma Violets, and are absolutely chock-full of glitter, turning the bath into a purple galaxy.
5/6ths of a Brightside bubble bar (in the plastic bag) – from Easter 2013, this is a bright and gorgeous orangey bubble bar (it has the same scent as Sun perfume). It’s a big one, and a crumbly one!
Sex Bomb bath bomb – a birthday present from my lovely friend Hannah. Jasmine, clary sage and ylang ylang make for a very relaxing, lovely scent.
Pop in the Bath bubble bar – sweet and floral and citrussy. The perfect spring bath.
Amandopondo bubble bar (above that) – this smells like turkish delight! Rose and lemon makes for my favourite relaxing bath.
Cinders bath bomb (left of Amandopondo) – Cinnamon-y wonderfulness from Christmas 2012. This was actually a Christmas present from Boyfriend, but I’m trying to save it, I don’t want it to be gone!
Rose Queen bath bomb (below that) – does what it says on the tin. Beautiful pink rose-scented water (another present from Hannah, yay!).
White North Pole soap (below that!) – surprisingly soft, comforting mint – again no replacement for Ice Blue, but really wintery mint.
Honey I Washed the Kids soap – everyone’s favourite honey soap. So creamy, so beautiful-smelling. An immediate repurchase every time.
Sultana of Soap soap (peeking out above HIWTK) – I find it so hard to pinpoint the smell of this – the Lush site says nougat, but I just get ‘sweet’ as a concept from this!
And lastly, my beloved Ice Blue stock. I have about this much again at home, but this is what I have with me. So minty and perfect, and the most beautiful blue!
Tempted? Addicted? I want to see all your Lush posts!
