Lush Lovelies

On a recent trip to Belfast I purchased some goodies in Lush. I waited until I was in Belfast to buy these as it is much cheaper to buy them there than in Dublin.

The first item I bought was the 'Angels on Bare Skin' cleanser. This contains very few ingredients mainly  rose and lavender oils plus ground almonds to provide gentle exfoliation. This product leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth and never irritates my skin. Plus the smell is amazing. I think this product is suitable for all skin types (mine is combination/sensitive) so if you are looking for a lovely cleanser to leave your skin silky smooth I would recommend giving this a try. The consistency is unusual but you soon get used it is and the tub lasts for ages.

I also bought the big blue bath ballistic with  lemon, lavender and seaweed. This was a pleasure to use and definately my favourite ballistic of all that I have tried so far. It turned my water a lovely shade of blue, the smell was really nice and it only downside was that there were lots of little bits of seaweed left in the bottom of the bath afterwards that I had to clean up. However this would not turn me off and I will definately repurchase this one again as a special treat.

The second bath product I bought was the Karma bubble bar. I had wanted to try this for ages and am definately glad I got to try it. This contains orange and other spices and the smell is lovely. Like all Lush bath bombs it creates fantastic bubbles but is not as big as other bath bombs and I only got 2 uses out of this one. I am not sure I will buy it again as there are other bubble bars I prefer.

Keeping with the citrussy theme the final product I bought was the lemslip soap. I absoutley adore the smell of this soap. It is so lemony and such a happy soap.
Overall I was delighted with my Lush purchases and am looking forward to buying some items from their Christmas line soon.

I actually forgot about the lush cleanser I tried before and I really liked it! My skin has become very sensitive and I like the sounds of this one, lavender and rise are two of my favorite scents! Next time I'm up north I'll pop in and get some! X
