BEAUTY | The Lushness of Lush

I hope you like the new name! I thought it was time to move on from Dorky, Fizzy and Quirky Stuff and finally have an understandable, sensible and shorter name. The quirkiness is still there alright!

I am developing a fetish for an animal-testing-fighting, fresh, ethical, handmade, wonderfully scenting bath brand...
Yes, you guessed correctly; it's Lush!

But what is so lush about Lush? Let's dip into the mystery by analysing the only Lush products I own! Yippee!

And at that moment I longed for the ability to smell pictures on computers.

I without a doubt felt giving as I handed in not just one, but two, of these goodness filled lotions for 2 euro ( I think ) several months ago, with that cash (except taxes) being sent to organisations of environmental conservation, animal welfare and human rights. 2 euro hopefully made a difference... Nonetheless, these tiny samples are florally and sweetly moisturising, with a hint of rosewood. Like most lotions it takes centuries to dry, but it's worth it as it's aroma screams SPRING to my nose.

The description of this jelly is pretty luring for Junior or Leaving Cert students, I must say.
Whoosh, with a name that not only sounds like the whizz of deadlines, but depicts ideally the swiftness of the slippery formula as it splats to the shower floor, has been around in the household for quite a while. That worries me as it said 'Best Used Fresh' and I don't remember what the Use By date says. Despite it's likelihood of being old, it's zingy, rejuvenating fragrance of the sea was uplifting when I scooped a bit out in the shower recently. It really will be handy for exam season, so I hope it will be all right if I break the Use By rules. Whoosh is too refreshing and lovely to bin!

Hello other sea themed product! Breath of fresh air or sea breeze may not be the right definition for this spray. I think I should be hired for renaming Lush Products; introducing the 'Spit of Fresh Air' or 'Sea Splash'! The toner is invigorating, startling (I suppose if you spray it directly to your face) and calming. Although it is recommended just as a pick me up or a cool down, I use it as a quick toner at night; it's too wonderfully skin benefiting to limit to just those tasks.

My first ever Lush bath bomb was more pleasant to smell before use than when it was dissolved in the bath. Not that it didn't give off a nice aura when it tinted the water, it was that I could hardly smell it. Maybe I did it wrong; should I have not done the whole bath bomb at one time, or not wait until I had a Snapchat story up of the bomb fizzling in the water to hop in? Perhaps my nose just malfunctioned in the tub...

Anyway, the scent when I could smell it was sweet, sugary sweet, and was fun to watch as it crackled with popping candy in the water. My skin felt quite soft afterwards and I was more relaxed following my bath. My favourite thing about having Space Girl was that it left an aromatic fragrance in my bedroom for a day or two, as well as when it was in my room unused.

Ultimately, Lush is pretty lush!

I'd love if you could leave your recommendations from Lush in the comments - next time I'm going to the shop I will
surely splurge!
