|my very well packaged LUSH UK order!
a little post to tell you all that LUSH UK had new and exciting retro products out! Well, today my doorbell rang and guess what? My international LUSH order had made its way across the pond to me. I love how fast the LUSH UK shipping is. I love how well they package everything for international travel. I love the products. I love the prices! I just LOVE LUSH UK!
Whitewash Shower Smoothie (retro/LE) (which is now sold out!)
Deep Sleep Shower Jelly (retro/LE)
2 x Lemony Flutter cuticle butter (which is also available in North America and is not a retro product)
Heavenly Bodies buttercream (retro/LE)
Milko soap (retro/LE)
Sonic Death Monkey shower gel (retro) (also available in NA retro)
and they included a sample vial of Dirty perfume and a sample pot of Freeze shower gel (both of which I already own actually! but samples are always welcome and appreciated)
|my LUSH UK haul!
Whitewash smells amazing! Very citrusy. It is made with tons of aloe vera and China clay to be used as a soothing, softening and cleansing soap. I cannot wait to use this!
Sonic Death Monkey was thrown in as a 'just because'. I love trying LUSH Retro shower gels. This one is supposed to smell of chocolate, coffee, limes and hemp! I missed the whole 'hemp' part when I ordered it and as soon as I took a sniff, the hemp was majorly evident! I've heard great things about this shower gel from other LUSHies but this one might not be for me. I may decant some and see if I like it in the shower.
Milko soap was purchased because I love LUSH's creamy soaps. It is supposed to smell like lemon ice cream (yum??) but to me it smells exactly like LUSH's Christmas soap Snowcake. I have tons of Snowcake stocked up, so I sniffed one and then the other, and they do smell similar although Snowcake has a stronger scent. Either way, I like the scent of Milko and will use it up no problem!
Deep Sleep shower jelly was much anticipated by all the LUSH community. It is very lavender and chamomile based, and smells a lot like Dream Cream. Overall, I prefer the scent of Sweetie Pie and Iced Wine shower jellies over this one, but I took a gamble on it.
Lemony Flutter is one of my staple LUSH products that I cannot be without. I picked up one for me, and one for a friend who has chronically dry hands. It is lemony fresh, and it is deeply moisturizing. I love the texture, the scent and the effectiveness of this product. It is a must-have!
Lastly, Heavenly Bodies buttercream. I was so excited to try a butter cream because they've been discontinued by LUSH for years. Buttercreams are made for extra sensitive skin as a non-lathering, deeply moisturizing soap. It is supposed to smell of oranges and chocolate, but I got a heavy whiff of rhassoul mud when I sniffed mine, which I am not a fan of. Hopefully that scent disappears in the shower!
Overall, I am quite pleased with my LUSH UK order! I have had nothing but top notch experiences with the LUSH UK and I will continue to buy from them. Check them out for yourself- many of their products are considerably cheaper than the North American LUSH.
