Lush Halloween Mini Haul With a Couple of Extras

This is another post that was meant to be done a couple of weeks ago but I’m hoping that these products are all still available on the website, I’m pretty sure some might be in shops after Halloween.

I have a bit of a weakness for Lush Halloween products, though I would love it if they brought back Ghost shower gel and buy so many bottles I do still check out some of the products each year. This time I may have bought more than I meant to as I got a bit carried away seeing them actually in store. I wasn’t too bad though!

Fortune Cookie Soap Box: A Pirate’s Life For Me

FCSpiratesheader

Last Thursday the summer Soap Box from Fortune Cookie Soap arrived so I’ve had some time to play around with most of the products to see how they work. Fortune Cookie Soap are an American company that make bath and body products and, once every few months so each season, they release a main collection and you can see inscribe to their Soap Box so they send out a box full of said please and two full sized products, one in each of the upcoming scents.

Most seasons they tend to stay pretty much within the trends for that season but they also have a second theme and this one is one I love and am excited about as it’s Pirates of the Caribbean inspired with the name A Pirate’s Life for Me. You get six sample sizes and two full sized products. The ‘samples’ though are a pretty good size and you get multiple uses out if most of them,things like bath bombs and melts are one off but most have enough for multiple uses.

First Impressions: Happy Place Cosmetics Solid Brush Cleanser, Bath Dusts and Lip Scrub

Today’s review is on a few of the products from a company that I found on Instagram; Happy Place Cosmetics. I think we all have those companies we find on Instagram, the ones with the pretty products that pop up in the search when we’re scrolling. Normally they seem to be either too expensive or from America with postage and packaging that doubles the cost of the order but Happy Place Cosmetics are based in the U.K. and do a range of skin care, bath and body products as well as quite a wide range of solid brush cleansers. I do like trying indie brands and the fact they’re in the U.K. and cruelty free meant I had to at least look at them, then a few things may have ended up in my basket. Though, to be honest, I was rather restrained with this order, I could have ordered a lot more.

It was the solid brush cleansers that first caught my eye and when they had a restock of all the scents they have ever done and it included Gummy Bear I had to make an order. Unfortunately I managed to miss out on the half price offer, damn my indecisiveness, so I only got the one when I could have got two but I added a couple of bath dusts (broken up bath bombs) and a lip scrub and made an order. I may already have a second one planned, this company could turn into an expensive find.
