A little LUSH haul


          It's a like a candy store. When I walk into a LUSH, I can't help but succumb to its bright colors, fragrant scents, and general charm. If you can believe it, I can easily browse a Sephora and walk out with nothing. That's a piece of cake. LUSH, however, is a weakness of mine. I went in to get a bar of shampoo and walked out with a couple extra things. The things is, I don't even feel bad about it. They're products are cruelty free and environmentally conscious, and work for me. I don't have  difficulty using things down to the last drop. Without further ado, here's my little LUSH haul.


           I picked up LUSH Seanik bar shampoo (reviewed here). This is my fourth repurchase, at least, and that's not counting the ones I bought for my mom. I've never had a shampoo that suds up, clarifies, and decongests my scalp as well as this. I've noticed decreased hair fallout since I've been using this. Who doesn't like thicker hair? LUSH Mask of Magnaminty (reviewed here) is one of my favorite masks. After running out of my last tub, I figured I would try some more cost effective mud masks. From that experience, I realized that I missed Mask of Magnaminty. This time, I got the smaller sized tub. I only apply a thin layer of mask and this tub should be last through the four month expiration date, even with frequent use. My final item is LUSH No Drought dry shampoo. There's no doubt that I'm excited about No Drought. I prefer dry shampoo in powder form (as opposed to aerosol) and this is great so far. It works in well and has a really nice natural citrus scent. I have a feeling that this is going to be yet another staple for me.

          Finally, if you're familiar with LUSH products, you might know that they put stickers with the likeness of person who made you product (see below). I've always thought this was fun and made each product more personal. LUSH is also really good about providing the expiration dates of each product, which is important since each has fresh ingredients mixed in. To be honest, I don't take the expiration dates to be hard and fast rules. I think they're 'safe' dates and if you store the products well (like in the fridge for Mask of Magnaminty), you'll be good for a while longer.



         I've started digging into each of these three products already. With two staple products and one will-be-staple product, you can say I'm a happy LUSHie. While there, I asked for samples of LUSH R+B hair cream, LUSH Veganese conditioner, and LUSH Ultrablam. I'm looking forward to testing them out too! Thanks for reading! Have you hauled from LUSH recently? What are your favorite LUSH products?


Love, Dovey.

  1. I go to LUSH so often, the staff actually recognise me...whoops! No Drought is literally the best dry shampoo I've used - yeah, it can be messy but the results are AMAZING and I've been using it regularly for two months and it's still basically full! :) xxx

  2. I am into Lush lately as well, I feel like I need some nice scents in my bathroom D: my favourite products are: godiva solid shampoo (it smells gorgeous)and yuzu and cocoa bubble bar. I have to try the lush dry shampoo as well, hope this one will be better than the other dry shampoos I've tried *sigh*

  3. I just got the No Drought dry shampoo as well! I like it so far but I often forget to use it on second day hair!

    I REALLY REALLY like the smell of the Honey I Washed the Kids soap - I've been saving it for special occasions but mmmm, so delicious.

    I also like their bar shampoo a lot! It's good I don't have a Lush near - I'd be there all the time!

    1. Hi Annick, great minds think alike :) Oh my gosh, Honey I washed the kids smells so good! I have the It's Raining Men body wash which is supposed to smell similar.

  6. I'm using NEW! shampoo bar and I love it so much! I never want to go back to commercial shampoos again! I'm not a huge fan of LUSH because I think they are overrated (they are far from being as natural as they claim to be, for example) but I'm pretty happy with this purchase.

    I was also recently given a sample of No Drought and can you believe I haven't even used it LOL? Glad you like it though, although I tend to prefer aerosols (less messy... for me!)

    1. Hi GABY, I've tried New before--- it's refreshing :) You should definitely break out the No Drought shampoo, if only for the pretty citrus scent!

  7. No Drought sounds amazing, I have only used aerosol dry shampoos so far but this one seems like a great idea. I have my eye on a few of the face masks, I had a sample of Brazened Honey which I liked, but I think I am going to see what the Lushettes recommend to me when I pop in there during the week. I just received a sample of their Lust soap in a beauty sub box and I am so happy, I love Lust in solid perfume form so this should be good!

    1. Hi Emma, I haven't tried any of the fresh face masks yet, but brazened honey does sounds wonderful to me too! How lucky to get lust soap in a beauty sub. I would love that!

  8. I'm the opposite of you and get so overwhelmed at LUSH that I tend to walk out empty handed more often than not! I love reading about LUSH products on blogs though. Arms me better for the next LUSH walk-in. :)

    Everything you showed us here sounds so great. I love the look of the Seanik Bar. :)
