Lush Oxford Street Haul

Way back on the 26th August I managed to visit the holy grail shop for any lush fan’s which is Lush Oxford street a 3-floor store which sells just pure Lush. Which as I am sure you know because you’re on my blog is a kind of heaven to me. The store opened way back in April 2015 and it has taken me this long to visit. I was down in London for the challenge cup and found myself in a bar about 15 minutes walk away from the store so I had to pop quickly and due to the fact that I had to carry it so I only picked up the ones which were exclusive to the store.

Cherry Blossom reusable bubble bar is one of those items which I managed to pick up Cherries are one of my favourite scents however, it is not something which Lush do a lot of for some reason I don’t actually know why. This is not a scent which reminds me of cherries too much it reminds me more of cherry bakewells and the cherry boiled sweets. This for sure is going to be one which I would love to come to normal stores because for sure this is one which I would be repurchasing I have not actually tried it out yet but it is one which I will be using in the near future. 
Big Calm Jelly bath bomb is one of the first jelly bath bombs which Lush have done one is meant to help you sleep which at the moment is something which I am not having a problem with because I am so tired all of the time. The reason it is designed to send you to sleep is due to the tonka and chamomile I think this is one I purchase for when I have a lot of deadlines and need myself to be sent to sleep. I know these are not exclusive just to Oxford street there is around 10 stores nationwide which have them in. Unfortunately for me, my local one which has them is Leeds so if I do end up loving it I am going to have to purchase online. I think this is my favourite of the jelly ones which I picked up. 
Dark arts Jelly bath bomb which has now changed its name to I think secret arts is this lovely black bath bomb I am surprised it took lush this long to do something which turned you bath black because we all know Lush like to be a little bit different when it comes to their products. This bath bomb is cinnamon, orange and almond which gives it a very spicy cinnamon with a hint of orange scent. This is one which I have not used yet because I thought I would save it for the winter when the weather turns as this is one which I think would suit that time of year more than when I purchased it. I am unsure how much I am going to love this because it could be like bathing in a bath of tar but this is sure going to be an experience. I may do a post about my experience when I have used this and do a review on the product. 
One Eskimo is a bubble bar which I picked up out of session but there was no way I could leave it as it shares it’s scent with Christingle which is a very menthol/ mint body lotion. This is a bubble bar which is going to be part of the Christmas line if I am not mistaken. This has a hint of grapefruit, spearmint and peppermint. I feel like this is going to be one which is great should my muscles be sure because mint really seems to help me or if you have bad sunburn this may be a product which you want to try. This for sure is going to be one which I am going to be stocking up on in the coming months. As I think if this is part of the Christmas range it will be coming to all stores. 
Fidget spinners are something which was a huge trend this summer and of course Lush had to jump on the bandwagon and make their own fidget spinner bubble bar. This is one which I had to pick up because of the fact that I love anything novel and this is of course citrus so there was no way that I was not going to be picking this one up. I can not actually say what oils are in this because I can not find it online so I am sorry for this. This is a product which produces a ton of bubbles so is one which Jess adores as well. I do seem to think that you purchase this in all stores now throughout the UK. 

Green coconut is another jelly bath bomb which does not sound a combination which most people would think of this bath bomb does not smell overly of the usual coconut smell which we have got used to with Lush instead it is almost a curry smell which I get when I have a whiff of this product. I know that this is something which could put a lot of people off because they may not almost like the thai green curry scent that this product is. However, to me, it not a spicy as a curry would be and have as many in it. This is going to be one which is going to be very interesting as I do not know how I feel about sharing my bath with green slime it may be an experience which I am not going to love. I think I will have to report my findings on this very soon. 
Green windmill is another one which I picked up purely because of the design I am a sucker for anything I guess you could say gimmicky. The scent on this is a really nice as well which is always a bonus it is a very fizzy kind of citrus smell with almost a hint of ginger I know it sounds like the stranges combination of product well scent ever but I promise you that it is one of the nicest that I have smelt from Lush and so different to anything which I have ever tried before. I am gutted I dropped mine which means some bits have come off but I am sure it is still going to make pretty bubbles in the bath. 
Guardians of the forest bath bomb is another one which I knew before I headed into the store is one which I needed because of the fact that it is the closest which we have to Lord of misrule all year long which is one of my favourite scents of the year. It is a very earthy scent which has a lot of Cyrpuss oil, rosewood and moss oil which means that it really smells of the forest as the name suggests. There is nothing better than the this when it is in the spring which is one of my favourite times to visit the forest.  This for sure is one which I would be purchasing more if I lived closer to oxford street I might have to purchase this one online because I know it is going to be a firm favourite. 
This is a product which I purchased because of the fact that one of the lovely members of staff used this product and demonstrated it on my arm. I have to say that my arm has never felt so smooth using this showder. This is a product which smells like lemon cheesecake which of course is something which just makes me want a product as well as the fact that it is a product which allows delicate but effective scrubbing. So it removes the dead skin cells before making the skin soft due to the fact that it has cornflour in the ingredients. It is a product which I am going to have to store in a black pot due to the fact that it comes in a cardboard box which is not going to be great for storing in the shower. This for sure is going to be awake me up product which I am looking forward to using in the colder darker mornings. 
Marmalade is the final jelly bath bomb which I picked up I thought that it was going to be a scent which is similar the famous condiment so I thought it was going to be a very juicy orange kind of smell. However, this is not the case at all to me it is a hell of a lot of powdery scents which is not something which I am a huge fan of. This for sure is not my favourite and I do not think it is one which I am going to be using for a long time because I have more which I love in my collection. I might even let Jess try instead and take photos that way because I am sure she would love jelly in her bath. I actually almost regret purchasing this one. 
The final item which I purchased was this plum rain body spray which of course is the same scent as the shower gel. This is one which I love because if you have ready my review of the shower gel you will knoe how I like the fact that this is a different scent to others which I have in my collection it is a fruity and fresh scent. This is going to be perfect for spraying on when I am going to university in a morning, The scent on this lasts for a fair amount of hours I know this is going to be one which I am going to get a hell of a lot of use out of.

Lush Halloween 2017 Haul

How has the time come around already for Lush to have released the Halloween collection this year it was late coming into stories it only launched last week, however, you have been able to get your hands on a lot of the products should you have ordered online. I have only picked up a few of the items this year as I picked some of them up previously when I visited Oxford street in August I promise I will share that haul with you in a couple of weeks time. I will apologise for the state of some of the bath bombs they fell off my pram on the way home and smashed which was not great. I know you can see ghost fairy in the main picture, however, I have since lost this product so I can tell you what it is like as I can not remember from when I purchased in store.

The first item which I knew I had to have was the monster’s ball bath bomb because it shares it’s scent with my favourite or one of my favouorite scents which is calacas. This makes such beautiful coloured water which is amazing for someone like me because it is purple and this is one of y favouote colours combined with the citrus smell which calacas has. This is one wish could be around all year long because of the fact I adore it that much. The reason this smells so amazing is due to it having the main ingredient of lime oil which always makes my mood increase and makes me feel uplifted it also has a ton of cocoa butter in which makes your skin feel soft which is something I am always needing at this time of year. For sure this is going to be one which I am going to be picking up more of before the end of the season.

Pumpkin bath bomb is not one which I picked up last year I do not think because of the fact that I was not a huge fan, however, this year I decided that I was going to give it a try. This is not one which I think smells of pumpkins not that I know what one smells like instead, I think it feels very much  vanilla and spicy scent which makes sense when I look at the main ingredient of this bath bomb which is citrus which I can not smell however, it does have vanilla so this might be a reason. This for sure I can imagine is going to make a very bright orange colour in the water and I have a feeling should I not like this Jess is going to love it and get used of the water. This is not one which I think I am going to purchase a lot of before it disappears.

Sparkly pumpkin bubble bar is one which has visited us for a fair number of years now, however, because of the fact that I am not a huge fan of the glitter it is the first time that I have ever purchased this. On dry sniff of this product it smells like it a cinnamon/ spicy product mixed with one which is a little bit fruity which is amazing as for me because I really love the spicy products which usually come out later in the year as part of the Christmas range and as you know I adore my fruity scents. I am sure this is going to be one which I am going to wonder why I have not picked up in the past I might have to try this before this product goes. I think the water is not going to be the prettiest but for sure it is one which I am going to enjoy trying.

Pink pumpkin is new this year and when I saw it online for some reason I thought it was going to share the scent with snow fairy, however, this is something which I was incorrect with instead it shares it scent more with rose jam however, it is not as strong as rose jam because of the fact it has jasmine in it which stops been too overpowering. This is something I can find occurs with rose jam often. I think this product is going to be one which is very relaxing and going to help me de-stress which is something I need to do a lot at the moment with the stress of third-year university. 

Lord of misrule shower creme is one of my favourite shower gels this is going to have to be repurchased a couple of times so I have enough of this to last me all year. It is a very strange scent to explain so I will recommend if you can pop into a lush store to have a sniff of this product I would. It is black pepper and patchouli with a hint of vanilla which gives it such a strange but beautiful scent. This is a thick shower creme which keeps your skin so soft and it does last for a long time which is something I love as this is one of my favourite scents and I look forward to every Halloween when this product comes out.  

This beautiful cat is called bewitched bubble bar this I am sure is going to bring one of the most amazing black water and everyone has to love black baths. On dry sniff this smells like blackberry which is a bath bomb which they have got rid of this year mixed with the comforter which is my favourite bubble bar. This is not a floral scent or too much of citrus this is a sweet scent which is a change in this collection this year. This for sure is going to be one which I need to check in the water and see if I like it before possibly purchasing some more of it. 



The final item which I picked up from the range was a lip tint in black rose. I will admit I don’t know if I ever have tried a lip tint from lush however, I had seen swatches of this and new I had to try it this it comes black in the tube and into a berry kind of pink which is one of my favourite colours to wear at this time of year. I will say it is pretty sheer which means that it is one which I could get away with wearing when I hardly have a lot of make up on and it would not look out of place which is always good. For sure I can see myself getting a lot of wear out of this little beauty.

Have you picked up anything from this range yet of so what did you get? If not what do you have your eye on?

Lush New Releases Haul

Recently I visited Lush which is not a rare occurrence for because I usually visit the store at least once a week, however, I have not been in that much since Joe left because I have had to purchase everything for Jess and I did not want to bankrupt myself as well as try and use some of the stash I have at the moment because the Halloween/ Christmas range are launched.

They have just discontinued some of my favourites in their annual summer cult which annoyed me a lot because it means that I had to stock up and while I was in stores I noticed that they had some new products out which as a Lushie I knew I had to purchase. A couple of the items which I purchased have been available in Oxford Street for a number of weeks now but as you know I live in the North around 2 1/2 hours by train away from London.

The first bath bomb which I picked up is cheer up buttercup which is the small yellow circle bath bomb at the top of the picture. This bath bomb is like sunshine which is going to be great because it brings a touch of summer and sunshine which we are all going to need soon because we are fastly approaching the autumn months. This bath bomb for sure smells like Lemon it just smells like pure Lemon and almost like lemon sherbet if you have ever used the refresher shower jelly it is almost like that.

Yellow Submarine is one which I am sure which you have to sing the Beatles actual song when you hear of this bath bomb and its name. This is one of my favourite bath bombs of the whole regular line collection at the moment I think because of the fact that it smells of orange and lemongrass it does have coconut in it as well which means this bath bomb does smell tropical I guess it makes me think of actual summer and holidays for some reason I think of cocktails on the beach when I smell this scent.

Rocket Science is one of the cheapest bath bomb which is priced only at £2.95 however, do not make the price make you think that it is going to be a poor bath bomb at all. I think it is going to be one which you will want to pick up as well. It has bergamot oil and lemon oil which is a couple of scents which you know I like if you have read my blog before. I would say this is one which does make a pretty show in the bath so it could be one to use with the children and it is very cheap as well compared to some of the other products lush do.

As you know if you have seen that Lush has made Jelly Facemasks and of course I could not go in and not pick them up because of the fact that they are different and I love things which are a little bit strange but sometimes these are the best kind of products. I picked up 1000 millhelens this is a very apple scented mask which has witch hazel to soothe and relieve irritated skin, green tea to detox and purify the pores, and kaolin clay to remove unwanted grease and dirt. This is something which I need because at the moment my skin is terrible and it is breaking out to the high heavens if I could hide at the moment I would. 

The other jelly mask which I purchased was the was just to clarify is designed to brighten you skin and it also super rejuvenated and clean the skin which of course is something which I need while my skin is like this horrible and broken out The reason why you get these amazing results is due to the fact that there is enzymic papaya which is great for brightening, bamboo stems which exfoliate, grapefruit and bergamot which helps lift the mood as well as the fresh orange juice which is meant to help perk you up. The jelly facemasks are actually only £6.95 and I can imagine that they are going to last a while if I am honest I think I will get more use out of them that they fresh ones. 

A final couple of items were body spray which who does not want to smell like Lush all of the time if they can. I picked up twilight which of course helps me sleep but it also makes me relaxed which is really good because I can struggle to calm down and because I know I am going to get more stressed with uni this year I think this is one which I had to pick up because the scent does last all day and who doesn’t love that the reason it keeps you relaxed is because it has lavender and tonka in as the main ingredient. This for sure is going to be one which I wear when I am at uni as well as when I just want to chill out this whole body spray only cost £20 which make sound expensive but the scent does last all day long and I think the bottle is going to last a fair while. 

The other body spray which I picked up was Dirty which I know what you are thinking that sounds strange why would you want a body spray which is called dirty well I will tell you it is actually a mint scented product which is something that I adore because I do like nice fresh scents, however, the reason why I purchased this one was due to the fact that the Joe was using this shower gel just before he left and then this me and then this means when I am missing him it can spray this it does mean that I think that he is there and it means that I do not have to steal his hoodie because I am that annoying girlfriend who loves stealing the hoodies.

Have you tried any of the new releases in Lush?
