Lush Goodies arrived today :)

Hey girlies,

I was so excited to come home today and see that my Lush package was delivered today.. I am so excited and it came just in time because tomorrow is the day i leave for a lovely getaway to the USA and Hawaii... ahhh heaven ! I mostly placed my order for the skin products because my skin has been playing up on me lately, it feels so congested and its dry in certain spots and its just not how it should be and usually is, so i thought that maybe organic is the way to go so i found myself drawn to the lush online store..

So heres what i found on my front door step this afternoon..

Ultrabland cleanser: "With an almond oil oil-base, this cream cleanser takes off make-up and leaves your skin nourished. It’s gentle, but the deeply cleansing oils reach down and remove stubborn dirt and makeup. Rose, beeswax and honey soothe and moisturise the skin. Cleanse each night, then remove with a warm cloth and your skin will feel soft and smooth without any scrubbing at all. It’s Ultra Bland and ultra effective"

Breath Of Fresh Air toner: "Softening toner to soothe and revitalise the skin. Breath of Fresh Air is one of our seaside products, inspired by the Dorset beach coastline. You don’t have to live by the sea to appreciate it; all you have to do is get up in the morning! Sea water is full of mineral salts. Breath of Fresh Air makes your skin feel extra fresh and healthy because we add soothing aloe vera gel, rejuvenating rosemary and calming rose. Use it after cleansing, or refresh yourself at any time of day"

I forgot to take a photo of this one !
Skin Drink moisturiser: "Rich moisturiser to refresh and rehydrate parched skin. This is our rich, thick cream to turn rough, dry skin into soft, supple skin for as long as you continue to use it. A delicious blend of sesame, almond and evening primrose oils to moisturise, organic avocado to soften and nourish and calming rose oil, all mixed up in soothing aloe vera. This is an impressive, rehydrating cream. Give thirsty skin the drink it needs"

Dream Cream Moisturiser: "Incredibly soothing body lotion for troubled skin. Dream Cream is Lush’s best-selling product because it makes sore skin feel good again. Chamomile and lavender calm irritations, reduce redness and banish blotches. We also use oat milk, too, which has traditionally been used on troubled skin for centuries. It contains everything nature makes for soothing your skin"

Charity Pot Moisturiser: I wanted this but i got 4 small samples instead so i can pack them in my travel makeup case so i can always have one handy whether it be hands or dry skin on my face.
"Our hand and body lotion is made with skin-softening cocoa butter and almond oil to make your skin feel lovely, and it has a scent you’ll want to sniff all day long. Every penny that you pay for it - excluding the GST, will go into our Lush Charity Pot Fund, which is then given to the various organisations we support. Each pot has a label on it telling you a little story about one of the charities, good causes, and hand-picked groups that we have supported"

Lip Service lipblam: "Our original super-softener. We've been making Lip Service for almost a decade and it is still hugely popular because it works so well at making lips, heels, toes, cuticles and elbows soft. It has a magical mixture of effective oils and butters, plus tangerine oil for tone and a bit of taste. For cracked, rough lips always choose this one first; once you've sorted yourself out you can move on to the others"

Jasmin & Henna Fluff-ease: "Smoothing and softening the fluffiest locks. Ease your fluff with our supremely calming, jasmine-scented, pre-wash conditioner. Almond oil is smoothing and the blend of essential oils will de-tangle hair that's become troublesome and difficult. If you suffer from tangled and frizzy hair, this one's especially for you"

They also sent me three free samples which was exciting:

Honey i washed the kids soap: "The irresistible toffee and honey soap. Once you've sniffed it, you've got to have it. On paper, it's difficult to portray the full effect of this honeycomb and toffee scented soap. People who fully intended to walk past a Lush shop find themselves unable to resist its tempting fragrance. They inhale, drool, pick up a big chunk and join the queue for the till. It's hard not to buzz about this one"

Sandstone soap: "The exfoliating citrus and sandy one. On the glorious beaches of Rio de Janeiro, stunning Brazilian babes, and their mothers, mix up tanning oil with the fine sand and scrub their backsides to make them as smooth as silk. Sandstone soap has a layer of sand and the seductive scent of a caipirinha cocktail"

Q10 Toner Tab: "They developed the skin soothing Q10 for men, specifically for after shaving, for the modern chap who likes to take care of his skin. Women can use it too, all over after shaving, waxing, sugaring or anything else that makes your skin sore. Another of the inspirations was a request from our Japanese team, who loved the idea of using co-enzyme Q10 in skincare. Q10 is sometimes called a vitamin, but technically it’s not; it’s an anti-oxidant. The medical evidence says that Q10 supplements have been shown to increase sperm mobility!  In each tab we’ve got aloe vera that rehydrates when it hits the water, to help soothe your shaved skin and keep redness under control. We add lavender from the perfume fields of southern France and soothing sandalwood; they calm your mind as well as your skin, to help you avoid shaving cuts"
