Lush Haul.

I've finally gotten round to doing it, a Lush haul! I've wanted to do one of these since I decided I wanted to write a blog, and I've finally found the time to go to a Lush store and buy some stuff to write about - and use, obviously. I only got four items, otherwise I would have gotten too carried away and quite frankly, a little bit skint. So, this time I was sensible.

From left to right - Northern Lights, Dragon's Egg, Baked Alaska and Star Light, Star Bright.

Above are the items that I brought this time round. It was so hard to choose, as the Lush stores always smell so good and there's so much on display, and it's all just so damn tempting. It's also so hard to not re-purchase something you've tried and loved before, but I did manage to grab some new stuff this time. The only one shown above that I've used before is the Dragon's Egg and it's my absolute favourite.

I picked the Northern Lights for £3.50 as it's quite pretty to look at, with all the purple and the little white dots over it gives it the impression that there's stars all over the bath bomb. It's meant to turn the water like a purple colour and then more bright green-blue as it gets towards the center, which sounds exciting. I love the fact that this bath bomb is dedicated more towards Bonfire Night, which is one of the reasons why I wanted to grab this little gem, as it's one of my favourite times of the year. It's got quite a sweet and floral smell to it, but it's not overpowering, which is quite nice, it's more of a subtle smell compared to some of the other products. I can't wait to see what this one is like.

I love, love, love the Dragon's Egg. It's my all-time favourite from Lush, and it costs £3.35. It looks pretty simple and doesn't really look like anything special. The picture doesn't do it justice, as sometimes there are pale coloured splodges showing through the white, but the one I grabbed this time round was pretty much white all over. It has popping candy inside and when it's fizzing away, it releases these multicoloured soapy scales, which is amazing. It also leaves the bath a glimmering molten gold colour, which I adore. The scent of this bath bomb is to die for, as it smells to me like a cross between citrus and sherbet. I would happily rub this all over me and smell like it all day, every day, if I could. I can't recommend this one enough, as I buy it every time I go to Lush, and I probably always will. I love it.

I had this adorable little piece of soap cut for me to try by one of the very helpful employees. I didn't actually intend on buying this particular soap, as I was looking at another one and had the other one in mind when I went in there. But being the socially awkward person that I am, I panicked when the woman asked if I wanted any cutting, and I just blurted out "yes please, that colourful one!" and this is the one that I got without thinking. So clearly it's nice enough to look at for me to impulsively buy and blurt out about. It's the Baked Alaska soap, which I had cut to approximately 115g, which cost around £3.17 I think. You can have the soaps cut to different pieces, depending on how much you want to have or how much you want to pay. This one caught my eye because of the different colours in the soap, and I just think it's awesome how the colours are all there. It's very nice on the eye. It also smells divine, with a citrus smell, which is one of my personal favourites. I prefer smells like this compared to really flowery smells, as I'm not much of a girly-girl and I prefer smells with a little bit of a kick to it, like this soap. I haven't used it yet, but I'll be sure to write something once I have.

As you can probably guess by looking at it, this one attracted me because it's just so glittery. It gets everywhere. I'm starting to think it's just a block of compact glitter, because it just seems to be spreading, but never wearing off the bath melt. This one is called Star Light, Star Bright which costs £3.50. It's a bath melt, which you're supposed to either crumble into the water under the tap, or you can let a bit of it melt away in the water whilst you're in the bath (or all of it, if you want). It smells pretty good, with a citrus-and-Christmas scent of lime oil and ginger, which is quite pleasant as it isn't too strong and it's very nice to get a whiff of. I look forward to seeing what this does in the bath, as it's meant to turn the water a shade of turquoise and turn the water shimmery, so I shall review this properly once I have used it. The only thing about this that worries me, is that I'm already called a vampire just by the paleness of my skin, and I'm pretty sure if I used this in my bath, I'd come out looking like an extra addition to the Cullen family. Who knows, I'll let you know if the Twilight franchise accepts me as one of their own once I've used this.

Have you tried any of the above products? If so, let me know what you thought to them in the comments below!
