If you have spent more than ten minutes in the beauty corner of YouTube you’ve likely seen a Lush haul where people gush about the wonders of this place. If you’re like us, you’ve been DYING to find out if it was really worth it. Until recently, we didn’t have a Lush anywhere we regularly shopped, but that has changed. So, for my (Megan’s) birthday I picked out a few things. And then I had to wait a million years for the weather to change because I don’t take hot baths when it’s 90 degrees outside. Fortunately, cold nights are here and it’s bath time.
I bought the following:
So, here’s the deal. In the store they told me that the Bubble Bars can be broken into pieces and used for more than one bath, but that the bath bombs are single use. But! I had heard otherwise about the bombs and tossing a six dollar bath bomb into a single bath seemed a bit ridiculous.
I got five or six uses out of the bubble bar and I was easily able to cut my first bath bomb into four pieces. (I haven’t worked through all of them yet.) I think for maximum color and/or bubble payout you’ll want to use more, but I wasn’t disappointed in my frugal bath and they smelled HEAVENLY. The thing I like most about everything I bought is the scent. My bathroom smells good for a while post-bath and I can smell them every time I open my bathroom cabinet. These definitely pass the sniff test for me. That said, my kids couldn’t even stand being in the store for more than a minute as they found the smells pretty overwhelming, so consider that while you shop.
Would I re-buy these? Yes, definitely. I think I like the bubble bars more than the bath bombs, but it could be just that I loved the scent of the Sparkly Pumpkin so much. It’s still available, and the scent wasn’t screaming pumpkin spice at me at all, so I definitely think it’s something you could enjoy well past Thanksgiving. Fair warning, your bath will sport a trace of superfine glitter post-soak.
For me, LUSH is always about the smell, and therefore it’s not something I would ever buy online. Half of the fun is shoving your nose into a million bath bombs, and it’s just not the same reading a description online. Of course, if you don’t have a local LUSH, forget everything I just said.
Lush carries a ton of stuff, and some of it is pretty pricey (I’m looking at you, Shower Smoothie.) I’m intrigued by so many of their things, namely the shower jellies and shampoo bars, so I’ll definitely try one of those next time I’m in the store.
Tell us, have you shopped in Lush? Are you a fan? Is there somewhere else we need to look for amazing smelling baths? Talk to me like I’m a Chandler Bing level bath newbie here.
