Recent Purchase: Lush Online

lushpurchases1

This post is kind of a mix of first impressions, a recent purchases haul kind of post and some mini reviews as I bought a mix of new things to me and old favourites. I’m going to go into more detail with a couple of them in the future when I’ve tried them out some more. Two of them are from the Lush Kitchen which means they’re limited edition, the one is online only but the other is available in Lush Oxford Street store if you live near there.

In this order I bought the Olive Branch shower gel in the 250g size, the Self Preserving Dream Cream and a 250g chunk of Dream Wash from the permanent line as well as the Comforter Shower Jelly and the Perspective lipstick which is the one from the Oxford Street store. There is a version of Perspective available on the website, it’s in the original Emotional Brilliance glass bottle style packaging, but this is the more solid stick lipstick style, I’m not sure how they compare but just to know this exact product isn’t available online any more.

June and July Favourites: Two for One


I realised, when working out what to include in this post, that I didn’t actually do one of these for June so this is going to be a bit of a two months in one. Also, it turns out that most things work on the new Windows 10 but edge does not like WordPress and my camera is not registering on there so this post is coming from my iPad including photos so may not be the best quality

I don’t know how many of you are in the UK and how many will have watched Robot Wars when it was first on, or on any of the repeats, but I love that show. As the new series has just started a lot of June and July I was watching the original series to get ready and I was surprised at how early I was watching it originally, it seems I started at series 2 with the original airing. So far I’m liking the new series though I do miss the rhymes from Craig Charles in the later series. Also some of my favourites aren’t in the new one but it was to be expected, I wonder how the original robots would have survived against the new ones.

Boxing Day Sales: Lush

Processed with Moldiv

Another post with some things I got in the Boxing Day sales, this time from Lush. I spent a while on the website on Boxing Day itself and it kept crashing, it was so hard to use I gave up on getting anything, I don’t know why they can’t get that fixed as it happens every year. The next day the sets I wanted were still available at half price so I ended up getting four of the Christmas sets. Unfortunately almost everything I’m posting about is no longer available but they may be in some of the remaining sets, a few are permanent products or have another product in the same scent.

I normally get one of the bigger hat box sets in the sale but as none of us were going into the nearest city with one for a while I thought I’d buy something online. Three of the sets I have were in reusable boxes or tins, I find that I get quite a bit of use out of the boxes and it adds value to the set if I get one of them rather than one that’s wrapped like a normal present. The two sets, Merry Christmas and Snow Fairy’s Castle, that come in a box with a lid are both designs that could be used all year round, there’s boing too Christmassy on them. I’ll be keeping the metal ball that Winter Garden comes in and the paper and ribbons used in Home For Christmas are so nice I’m keeping them to use next year. I did buy the sets for the contents not the containers, I had planned on buying some snow fairy, rose jam and a golden wonder in the sale but they weren’t there when I finally managed to make an order so I went for the sets.
