A Lush Haul


Because I sure do love to pamper myself sometimes...

A couple of weeks ago I walked into my nearest Lush with the aim of coming away with a few bath products to tide me over during the last of Auckland's cold weather. I picked out a gift box (just for me) with a variety of bubble bars (this one in fact) and one delicious smelling soap I couldn't resist. Now here's the lowdown on the products I bought & whether I think they're worth picking up.

Karma Bubble Bar
Fun fact for you... this was the first Lush product I tried I'm pretty sure. It was either this or a melting marshmallow bath product that I'm not even sure is available anymore. I don't remember much about my first impressions trying this product, but perhaps it was true love at first bubble bar. I love the Lush bubble bars more than the bath bombs because they last so much more and save you your hard earned moolah. Karma is an orange scented spicy number which is described as refreshing and uplifting. Not my favourite smelling Lush product by any means, but I wouldn't say no to one.

Milky Bath Bubble Bar
This white and silver coloured bubble bar is freshly scented with a creamy edge, one I'd never tried before. Apparently this product has real skimmed milk included in its ingredients list, which is interesting. I guess my milk bath dreams have come true without knowing. Actually no, I've never had any milk bath dreams at all. Although it claims to be softening and creamy, it just leaves you smelling very clean. I'm afraid you'll probably need a nourishing body scrub or oil to pair with this one. This is a pretty lacklustre offering, really.


The Comforter Bubble Bar
We're in safe territory here, because The Comforter is hands down my favourite bubble bar for its delicious addictive scent and its pink bath water changing abilities. Usually this product is a little bigger when you buy it separately, but as this was in a gift box it's more of a mini size. I do tend to ration my bubble bars though, so no problems here. I can't remember how many of these I have bought since my Lush addiction began in about Year 12 (that would be three years ago), so that's as good a sign as you're going to get, that this one stellar bath treat.

Honey I Washed The Kids Soap
I've loved the scent this soap has since I bought the shower gel version a couple years ago. I challenge you to give this caramel and honey scented soap just one sniff because you'll usually find me bent over it like a lil' honey bee. Actually, that doesn't really make sense does it? Regardless, I basically want to eat this soap and I'm so glad I picked it up. This will last absolutely ages so luckily I should be smelling delightful for quite some time. I don't usually go for the soaps in Lush because they're not always the most moisturising, but you can't beat a good scent when you find one.

Granny Takes a Dip Bubble Bar
If you happen to not like bubble bars, this probably hasn't been a very good post for you. This colourful concoction consists of a few different scents - ginger, pepper and lemon - overall giving off a very spicy and herbal fragrance that I don't think will be to everyone's taste. My first impression of this is that it's quite a bit harder than the other bubble bars in this bunch, definitely not creamy. I don't particularly like the scent of this but it doesn't really linger. Alas, I wouldn't run out to repurchase this one but in terms of bubbles it makes the same amount as practically any Lush bubble bar out there so it will definitely be used up in swift timing.


Do you like Lush products or are you a bit over the hype?

  2. I love Lush! There isn't any around me thought so I have to order online, which can be pricey with shipping. Every now and then I will treat myself to a Lush order. ♥

  4. Oh my goodness it's been forever since I last went to Lush! Well, I visited the massive 3 floor one on Oxford St while in London...it was a DREAM!

    All these are such good picks! Sometimes you need reminding that such a simple thing as Lush can brighten your mood ten-fold.

    By the way, I have serious candle envy right now. I can only imagine how incredible it smells!

    1. Oh my god, I'm so envious of you going to Lush Oxford St! I'm going to have to go there in January when I'm in London. And yes, the coffee candle - it does sound amazing and smells pretty good too. I love coffee scented things. x

  5. Lovely haul! I've only tried a few Lush products but I really like their bubble bars. I actually tried Milky Bath one. It was nice. I'm definitely going to try more Lush products :)

  6. I think what we have learnt here is, stick to the OG Comforter haha. I love Honey I Washed The Kids too, such a delicious, comforting scent.

    1. Haha yeah. I know the scent is amazing!

  7. ahh I do love Lush bath products (although I so agree about bubble bars being better than bath bombs - it's annoying using up an entire product in just one bath!) The comforter is one of my faves too :)

    1. Yes I know - I never know a right time to use a bath bomb cos I'm like 'money down the drain!'

      Delete
  8. I feel like I'm over the whole bath bomb hype but I still love loads of their other products, especially their lip scrub! I also like the sound of the Comforter bubble bar and it will be perfect to try out as the days get colder here in the UK :)

    1. I'm a bit over the bath bomb hype too, although I wouldn't say no to a whole box of ones for free or something. Just too expensive.. and the comforter is the perfect thing to get :)

  9. Never over the LUSH hype. I rely on them to keep my skin pretty haha. I rarely buy bath bombs because I don't have a bathtub, but when I go to my parents' house I commandeer their bathtub and use them haha. I definitely want to try out the Milky Bath one! You got me craving some LUSH products now...
