Hauling Time!!!

Hello Lovelies,

Well it has been a little while, so I felt I was due for a little Lush/ Make up Haul! I think I mentioned that I changed my hair colour recently and what’s the point of having a new colour if you can’t use it as an excuse to buy new products to try? Exactly, no point! Also it was my birthday recently so I had a little extra moolah to burn.

So here is what I bought:

Daddy – O Shampoo

RRP: $12.50/100g, $22.95/250g, $32.95/500g

Lush’s purple shampoo used to keep the brassiness out of Blonde or Grey hair. Using Violets and Lemons for shine. It smells a little heady and very sweet. It reminds me of lollies, but not in a bad way and I don’t find it too over powering. It is very purple and I am interested to see how it stands up to the salon purple shampoo I have. Or is my hairdresser can tell the difference….

Blousey Shampoo

RRP:$25.95/240g.

I will admit that the first few times I tried this I didn’t like it. I mean I liked the smell. It smells amazing, but it didn’t win me over. I decided to give it another go since my hair is a little more fragile at the moment and so far I am actually really liking the results. It is made from bananas and is quite thick in consistency, but I find I don’t need to use much.

Turkish Delight Shower Smoothie

RRP:$32.95/200g

Happy Birthday to Me! Yes this was a birthday present to myself as I have been wanting to purchase it for awhile. Beautiful Rose scent!!!

King of Skin  

RRP: $12.95/95g

Another one of Lush’s products I have been wanting to try for a little while. Since spring is now here, it’s a good time to get my skin into  top shape for summer! King of Skin is a solid Body Butter that you apply to wet skin.

 Catastrophe Cosmetic Fresh Face Mask

RRP: $16.95/75g

Love Love Love this!! My face has been feeling a bit yuck so I picked this up to fix it. Works a treat. If you haven’t tried this, run don’t walk to your nearest Lush store!!

SAMPLE : H’Suan Wen Hua Hair Treatment

RRP: $19.95/225g

Another product I have been wanting to try. I just used this today and I can honestly say that it feels AMAZING. I can’t say the scent is my favourite ever, but since you put this in first then shampoo your hair it doesn’t really matter. Come payday I will definitely be adding this to more hair care routine. Leaves the hair so lovely and soft. I wish I had longer hair just so I could enjoy the results more.

 

I also went  to Mecca Maxima to pick up some new products.

Smashbox Camera Ready CC Cream

RRP: $52

I am in need of a new BB/CC Cream and this was the one recommend to me by the girl at Mecca Maxima. I find it hard to match my skin tone as I am pale, but not pasty. I also can’t be bothered to mix foundations etc. This is a good match and looks dewy on the skin. I’ll see how I go and whether I will repurchase. So far so good though.

 

20140915_121231

NARS Larder than Life long-wear eyeliner in VIVA APPIA.

My first NARS purchase! Which I am a bit exited about. I haven’t had the chance to wear it yet, it is a nice bronzy rose gold colour. A little fancy for work. A nice colour all the same. Not too out there, but a bit more interesting than just brown or black.

 

That’s all from me today! Let me know if you have tried any of these product’s and what you thought or if there are any in particular you would like me to review. Have an amazing day!!

 

 

 

Xx.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lush I Love Juicy Shampoo Review

20140624_144812[1]

Hello Lovelies 🙂

I actually got this as a sample first and I was quite impressed with it. I have tried a few Lush Shampoos and the only other I liked was Cynthia Sylvia Stout. Not that the others were bad products, it was more that the scent was too over powering for me.

“Enough raw energy to power a small city” – Lush

I Love Juicy is a very cleansing shampoo. It has pineapple, mango, kiwi and papaya in it. I tend to have more oily hair so for me this was really good. I felt I could go longer between washes than I can with other shampoos. It smells kind of pineapple/tropically but it isn’t an overpowering scent to me. It is much cleaner than say Godiva or the 50% Honey one. However if your hair leans more towards being dry, then I would probably pass on this one.

It foams up nicely, like a normal shampoo, but I find if a add just a little water after I have added it to my hair it foams up much better as well. My hair definitely feels nice and clean after I use it without feeling dry.

Having said that I would probably still alternate with the Cynthia Sylvia Stout. Mostly because I just love the smell of Cynthia Sylvia Stout and I Love Juicy is, like I said, much more cleansing so I probably don’t need to use it every time I wash my hair.

This is a repurchase product for me. I really liked how my hair felt and how it stayed clean longer. I also like the fact that Lush’s products are handmade and natural. I feel that type of product is just better for me hair all round.

Hope you are having an amazing day 🙂

 

Xx.

 

 

 

 

Lush Haul and Review

IMG_2447[1]

I have to admit I actually bought these awhile ago. Before Easter, hence the White Rabbit bubble bar. I wanted to wait until I had used the products and I am in a very Lush mood this weekend, so here it is.

20140511_214047[1] Cynthia Sylvia Stout Shampoo

“This shampoo is drunk on success! Stout, cognac and lemons make this a supremely conditioning  shampoo to give weight and shine” – Lush

I love this shampoo. LOVE it. It’s my favourite shampoo that I have tried so far and one of my favourite Lush products. It smells AMAZING! Yes it does have stout (beer) in it, but beer is actually quite good for your hair. I bought this for my husband originally, but I’ve kind of stolen it because I liked it so much (Well Ok we share it). My hair feels soft, clean and doesn’t get to oily between washes. The shampoo lathers up really nicely and you don’t need to use a lot. It’s been nearly 2 months? since I bought it. Both my husband & I use it and we still have a fait bit left (My husband washes his hair daily & me every other day or so). The smell though! Smells like ginger beer and lemons! Which I love. I am defiantly getting the largest bottle available next time!!

RRP: $12.95/100g, $22.95/250g, $32.95/500g.

20140511_214031[1] Dirty Springwash Shower Gel

“Like a dip in a mountain spring, with spearmint & menthol to your skin feel cool in a hot shower. Don’t be dirty – get fresh with this tingly and extremely minty body & hair gel.”       – Lush.

I bought this for my man, though I’ve read a lot of reviews from girls who love it too. I can  understand why. It smells just like spearmint lollies! Yum. Hubby does quite like this one. It does give you a cool tingly feeling when you use it, though not heaps according to him. This is part of the Gorilla Perfume range at Lush so you can layer up the scent. I would repurchase this one.

RRP: $7.95/100g, $14.95/250g, $26.50/500g.

Dirty Shaving Cream

“A superb shaving cream with oatmilk to cool and calm, safflower oil to moisturize and honey to soothe.” – Lush

Oh yeah, I share this one too. Again a fresh spearmint lollies smell. It is a very nice product to use. I use it on my legs and even with a crappy disposable razor – Zero irritation. Only nice smooth skin. I was really impressed. As with most Lush products you don’t need to use a lot, which is great because I don’t feel like I’m clogging up my razor with foam and not actually getting rid of the hair (if you know what I mean). I’m keen to try out the Prince shaving cream as well. A nice option for sensitive skin, male or female.

RRP: $9.95/100g,19.95/225g

The White Rabbit Bubble Bar

This was a limited edition for Easter and I just couldn’t help myself. So cute. Not my favourite bubble bar though. I thought it smelt nice, sweet kinda mashmallowy… (my husband said it reminded him of medicine. Weird). I used up the whole thing in one bath but you could cut it into two if you wanted. It made the bath a pretty pale pink colour and had small flowers into which floated in the water. The bubbles didn’t last as long as other bubble bars that I have used, like the Comforter & Brightside Bubble bars. Which I found a little disappointing.  My skin didn’t feel as soft/smooth as when I used the Inhale/Exhale bath bomb either. Not sure I would get this again if they bring it out next year.

RRP: *Limited Edition* $5.95.

IMG_2522[1] Toner Tabs

Dream Steam (top left) & T Tree (bottom right):

I love using these just before I use a face mask. The T tree one is good for oily skin and helps to cleanse skin. Dream Steam is for dry skin. You but them in a bowl of hot water and the put your face over it and cover your head with a towel. It’s relaxing and defiantly adds a bit of extra pampering for the DIY facial. You can also store the left over water in the fridge (about a week) and use as a toner. I have heard of people putting them in the bottom of their shower too. I haven’t tried that yet! Not everyone will like these, but I would recommend giving them a try.

RRP: $2.50 each.

SAMPLE:

Dream Cream Body Lotion:  I wish there had been more of this. It was a nice creamy body lotion and not overly scented. My skin did feel nice and smooth after using it. It is good for sensitive skin due to the oatmilk used in the product. I did like this, I’m not sure if I love it. I would like to try the Charity Pot Lotion as well and see how that compares.

RRP: $29.95/240g

That’s all from this Lushie today 🙂 I hope you had an amazing weekend and Happy Mother’s Day to all the Mums out there!
