LUSH Wishlist | Beauty

Now, although my last LUSH haul was a bit of a let-down overall, I'd really like to give them another chance, and so I've put together this wishlist, focusing on more "fun" and visually inviting products rather than substituting lovely fragrances for hopeful spot-banishing products with pieces of smelly garlic in them (which didn't really work, anyway!).
My plan is this: depending on how many beauty products/toiletries I receive for Christmas (if there are loads then I'll wait till I've used up a few items), I will place an order for all or some of the below products! Please do comment with your recommendations and thoughts of any of these (or other) LUSH products you have tried yourself!

1. Ocean Salt Coconut & Lime Facial Scrub, £7.25/120g
Not the most "fun" looking/sounding product, but something drew me to this product. I don't plan on using this as a facial scrub, but a body scrub, yes. With fine sea salt to scrub and cleanse, chopped limes (soaked in vodka!), fresh grapefruit and lime essential oil for the "zingyness". This anti-septic scrub claims to remove dead skin, tighten and soften the skin.
2. Dreamwash Sensitive Skin Shower Smoothie, £9.75/250g
This luxurious shower smoothie is made with cooling calamine and soothing aloe vera and is designed specifically for sensitive skin. This should calm the mind and leave your skin super-soft!
3. Fair Trade Foot Lotion with Mint & Arnica, £9.25/225g
I haven't currently got any specific foot products, so this one caught my eye with it's cooling and stimulating peppermint and spearmint, arnica to ease bruising and swelling, and cocoa butter and almond oil to soften the skin and help prevent cracking. This would be very welcome at the moment as we are very busy at work so we're on our feet all night!
4. Cupcake Chocolate & Mint Fresh Face Mask, £5.95/75g
Can you guess what made this product stand out to me? The chocolate, of course! This minty chocolate cupcake face mask sounds and looks so indulgent and best of all - no calories! Haha. This mask claims to soften, tone and moisturise your skin. With linseed, mint, cocoa butter and rhassoul mud.
5. The Comforter Bubble Bar, £4.50/each
I love fruity scents and this berrylicious bubble bar sounds right up my street! I know LUSH are well-known for their bath bombs, but I like bubbles with my bath, so I'd love to try out their bubble bars to see how well they perform! Bubbles are a very important part of bathing, you know! This bubble bar features blackcurrant and bergamot oil for a warming, comforting and reassuring bathing experience!
6. Snow Fairy Shower Gel, £10.95/500g
There's not a lot I can say about this pink beauty, is there?! This product is very well-publicised and is a no.1 Christmas best-seller. I have never tried this product and so I'm hoping I'll still be able to purchase it after Christmas! This also sounds perfect for me as I love sweet scents. This shower gel's feature ingredient is synthetic musk for it's lovely fragrance. I can't wait to try this to see if it lives up to all the hype (I'm sure it will!)!
7. Candy Mountain Bubble Bar, £2.65/each
This bubble bar looks really fun! The feature ingredient in this product is vanilla and I love vanilla! With a sweet shop fragrance, this bubble bar is sure to liven up anyone's bath-time!


  1. I really want to try snow fairy + the bubble bar does look so much fun!
    Lovely wishlist, I hope if you do try some of these you find them much better than the last!

    I can't wait to try both of them; both sound really indulgent which is just perfect this time of year! xxx

    It looks lovely and I bet it smells gorgeous. I think creamy shower products like the shower smoothies are much nicer than shower gels; they just seem more luxurious! xxx
