It’s been a while since I’ve talked about Lush, and it’s because it had actually been a while since I walked into a store and bought something. After paying a visit this summer, I ended up with some pretty classic stuff, all of which I’d never actually purchased before. I got a pot of the Rub Rub Rub salt scrub ($22.95 for 11.6 oz.), Celestial facial moisturizer for sensitive skin ($26.95 for 1.5 oz.), Charity Pot hand and body lotion ($7.95 for 1.7 oz.), and a Yellow Submarine bath bomb ($5.95) And, they’ve all been really great for my dryish, sensitive skin over the past few months.
Happy 2015! I wanted to take a moment and talk about some of my favorite products I’ve been using over the past year. I’m starting with makeup picks and then moving on to skincare and body care, and I like the exercise of narrowing a list down to ten – it really makes me focus on the things I was most excited to experience for the first time and continue to reach for on a daily basis.
Yesterday I made a run to Whole Foods because I wanted to try a new deodorant and picked up a few more things while I was there. I’m still trying to get my bearings in Whole Foods’ personal care section, but I found a few things that I’m excited about. Would you like to take a peek?
I’m so excited to tell you about these bath bombs that I’ve been trying recently! I’m not a regular Whole Foods shopper and only recently started taking a look at their bath, body and beauty products, but the last time I was there I spotted this display of bath bombs from Level Naturals for $1.99 each. They had a wide variety of scents available, and I decided to start out by trying three of them: Jasmine Rose, Forest and Mud Bomb.
I happened to walk by my nearby Lush store yesterday and saw that they’re offering a buy one, get one free deal for their holiday products. I took the opportunity to grab a couple of their bath offerings, which are products from Lush I don’t generally indulge in (I take frequent baths, so I try to use cheaper bath products on a day to day basis). I can’t find any info about an end date for the sale, so I’m assuming it just lasts as long as it takes for them to sell out of their stock. You can check out what your local store has left, or browse the selection online. The selection online is very different from what my store was offering, so you can perhaps check in more than one place if there’s something in particular you’re interested in.
On my last walk though Bed Bath and Beyond, I passed a new display of bath bombs in a handful of different scents by a company called Beau Bain. I take frequent baths for soothing achy muscles, but bath bombs and melts seem more like a luxury item since they’ll only get me through one or, at best, two baths and carry a pretty high cost per use. I was pretty excited to see the price tag on these, though! They’re only $2.79 each, so I had to take one home to see if they could potentially replace more expensive options.
