The second part of my haul! Start here if you missed yesterday’s post. But for now, on to Lush!
I popped into Lush on Sunday morning to say goodbye just before I moved out, and of course to stock up on lovely things to put in my bath! I love my bath. At home we have a big, deep bath, with a big, deep hot water tank (unlike at Boyfriend’s, where there’s only ever enough hot water for half a bath, and you have to run up and down stairs with multiple kettles to get it chest-deep). This definitely requires Lush products!
So I gathered a few bits, and was even tempted into perfume and make up, which are enormous weaknesses of mine (you bad influences, you).
Firstly, I made a beeline for Phoenix Rising bath bomb, a deep purple and gold cinnamon-y spice-y wonderful bath bomb which never fails to relax me. In the spirit of relaxation, I went straight for Dreamtime bath melt, to add a silky lavender-camomile hit to any bath bomb (I’m thinking maybe Sex Bomb?), and in the spirit of getting some get-up-and-go back once I’m done relaxing, I also picked up a Dorothy bubble bar, which I’ve never had before. This is a fun and colourful floral, with ylang ylang and orange flower, and it just smells like energy!
I also wanted to pick up Bubbly lipstick, because I’ve really been loving wearing Decisive, and this pretty gold-tinged pink really impressed me when I tried it on in the shop. I think I might have a slightly old one, since it’s a little clumpy around the top, but I’ve mixed it up and it seems fine. I’m actually sad I didn’t pick this earlier and wear it through spring!
And then finally, just I was headed to the till, someone pointed out that I didn’t actually own Sikkim Girls perfume, which for someone like me who loves jasmine and frangipani, was a little bit odd. After trying it on my skin for the zillionth time, I decided to take the plunge and get it, and I’m glad I did. This is a lovely floral, nothing at all like the jasmine-punch that is Lust, but something complex and exotic. I really like it on my skin.
