|LUSH Jungle Conditioner, Karma Komba Shampoo bar, Sugar Scrub|
I'm running out of my LUSH Jungle solid conditioner, and was thinking of investing in a new liquid version, because the solid probably lasts me 1-2 mo. for $6. For some reason, I thought liquid would be a better deal. However a LUSH sales associate (who, btw are usually quite pleasant and more than eager to talk about products) convinced me to go with Jungle again. I was surprised to hear that Jungle is actually their strongest conditioner, on par with Retread. No wonder it worked so well on my wavy hair. And compared to $25 for Retread or other liquid conditioners, a $6 Jungle is a go!
I was feeling extra grubby after camping and in need of major exfoliation and cleanliness so I decided to check out Rub Rub Rub (below) which is a body wash/ exfoliater that smells like beautiful mimosa (the same scent as Sakura bath bomb) and exfoliates with salt. A different SA (if you stay long enough, all the SA's will eventually talk to you if you let them), gave me an exfoliation treatment on my arms, comparing Rub Rub Rub (below) with Sugar Scrub. She taught me a tip: you can mix sugar scrub with Happy Hippy (or another shower gel) to give a similar effect to Rub Rub Rub. Both were nice, but I went with Rub Rub Rub since I don't have to mix anything. However, I did get both shower gels and a sugar scrub in my GWP so I'll be sure to try them out as well.

Happy Hippy is a grapefruit/citrus scented shower gel that I've wanted forever (but didn't want to shell out for). Flying Fox is a jasmine and honey scented shower gel that I've also been curious about. I'm so glad I got both as gifts, since they're both products I'm excited about. I just tried Flying Fox this morning, and it smelled gorgeous. It's more of a sexy scent (vs fresh for Happy Hippy). Also, a little goes a long way. Some shower gels don't bubble well and you end up using too much, however even a little does the trick. This is good if I ever decide to purchase in the future. But for now, I can't wait to wake up to Flying Fox tomorrow morning.!

Oh my, it's quite late now--- I blogging always takes longer than I intend. I was planning on posting simple haul pictures, but that never happens =P. I hope you enjoyed my LUSH haul! The gift with purchase was more generous than I expected, so it's worth a peek if you have an event near you. I don't think the stores heavily advertise in-store; I found out through email subscription. and be sure to tell me your LUSH favorites, so I can check them out =)
