Haul | LUSH Wishlist Picks #1
For two reasons, I have been drawn to LUSH products recently. One, going cruelty free means I can't always pop into the drugstore down the street to get hair and body products. Two, there is a good-sized and clean tub in my new apartment. I spent a lot of time going through the LUSH website one evening and started compiling a list of products I wanted to try out. I finally popped into the store last weekend to purchase the top three things on my list.
I have enjoyed using the LUSH Rub Rub Rub Shower Scrub in the past, but this time I decided to try something new and pick up the LUSH Rub Rub Rub Shower Scrub Bar. The floral and citrus blend in this product is just so relaxing and uplifting, I just can't get over how good it smells! I like that it is just gritty enough for proper exfoliation without being too harsh. I haven't decided on whether I prefer the bar or the original liquid form in a tub yet, but I will report back with more details soon.
I use to primarily use drugstore shampoos and conditioners with the occasional Bumble & Bumble samples which, by the way, were not drastically different in performance from the drugstore offerings. I had always been interested in LUSH hair care products, but never gave them a try because of the price tag. Now that I'm going cruelty-free though, what better excuse is there to justify paying more than $5 for shampoo and conditioner? With fine hair on a slightly oilier than average scalp, the LUSH I Love Juicy shampoo sounded perfect. The acids in the fruits (pineapple, mango, and kiwi) help to control oil production and the sea salt helps to volumize limp hair. I decided to pair it with LUSH Veganese, a super light conditioner for fine hair. It contains essential oils like lavender, rosemary, and lemon to help fight oil but keep the natural shine. When checking out, the gal helping me said this is her favourite shampoo and conditioner combo, and her hair looked great. I'm still working on my current drugstore products but I can't wait to give these a whirl.
There are still plenty more products I'm looking to purchase so if you're a LUSH fan, keep your eyes out for these hauls. I'm also excited to bring more reviews of LUSH products onto the blog.
Don't forget to send me some product recommendations as well, as I'd love to add them to my wishlist!
