LUSH Rub Rub Rub salt scrub, Celestial moisturizer, Charity Pot body lotion, and Yellow Submarine bath bomb

LUSH Celestial facial moisturizer ($26.95 for 1.5 oz.), Charity Pot hand & body lotion ($7.95 for 1.7 oz.), and Rub Rub Rub shower scrub ($22.95 for 11.6 oz.)

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.

I’ve recently moved to a new city and am currently looking for a new job, so theoretically I shouldn’t be shopping. I’ve continued to grab things here and there, though, and so recently I’ve been doing monthly purchase roundups because I tend to end up with a decent pile of new things to share. I’ve bought goodies from Lush, Sephora, Harmons, The Yeon, and CVS and will share some first impressions and swatches.

Since this past fall, I have been using henna in my hair in the form of Lush’s pre-mixed Caca Rouge and have really enjoyed the results. When I was in Morocco this spring I decided to buy some pure henna powder to take back with me and experiment with, and I recently dipped in for the first time. This required me to mix up some kind of recipe, and so I wanted to share what I did, what the results were, and how it compares to my previous experience with Caca Rouge.

This is a mask I’ve repurchased a couple of times over the last year or two, and as I’m revisiting it now I’ll say a few words about it. For some reason I’ve previously neglected to do so! Catastrophe Cosmetic is a gentle and calming mask formulated to cleanse and sooth skin, and I find that it’s a particularly good choice for the colder months of the year.
