Lush Empties

Friday, 24 February 2017

I am extremely good at hoarding all of my empty products but I’m dreadful at getting round to writing posts on them. There’s a whole drawer full of empty bottles waiting to be photographed and recycled but, so long as I don’t open the drawer, I forget all about them. It’s reached the stage where I’m breaking my empty products down into 2 categories: Lush and non-Lush. There are a lot of Lush empties lying around but, to avoid gushing about every single product and sounding like an overly sponsored moo, I’ve picked some I love and some I hate to show off in this post. It’s all about balance people!

Best Lush products

Lush Ice Blue: This was an impulse purchase after I noticed it was available in the Lush Kitchen. Any shampoo that’s blue and minty belongs on my head! Ice Blue smells like mint and hardware stores when you’re applying it to your hair which I resented but it left behind an amazing, subtle mint scent once rinsed. If this was a permanent product, my bank account would be in serious danger.

Christingle: Why is this only a Christmas product? It is one of the best moisturisers I’ve ever used. Christingle is really a body conditioner but I always forget to use it in such a way because who actually remembers to rub blue gunk on themselves while in the shower? This did such an amazing job as a moisturiser but a warning to all the females in the world, if you get this in the wrong place, it burns like hell!

Best Lush products

Pot O’Gold: Who keeps letting me buy Lush shower jellies? I can’t stand them but I keep buying them because I think they’re a good idea. I didn’t really like Pot O’Gold, the smell just wasn’t really my thing and the majority of it went down the shower drain without actually washing me beforehand.

The Comforter: – The Comforter is the best bubble bar Lush has ever created (I am willing to fight anyone who disagrees) so to have it in shower cream form makes me so happy on so many levels. I used to be a Dirty Springwash kind of girl but now I’m all about this gorgeous blackcurrant scent.

Best Lush products

Dirty: This wasn’t used by me but I’m going to keep going on about it because every male should use it for shaving. My fiancĂ© loves Dirty and I like how his face smells after he’s used it. Everyone should get to smell a man’s face after they’ve used Dirty (don’t smell a stranger’s face though as that weirds people out).

Don’t Rain on my Parade: – Why oh why did I buy this? Some people love it, some people hate and I fall into the “this makes me want to throw up” category. The description checks the right boxes for me but the actual product, well, let’s not even go there.

There are a lot more empty Lush products lying around (I’ve built a rather impressive tower out of them) but at the risk of this turning into an essay on Lush products, I think I’ll stop at 6. Now please excuse me while I resist the urge to buy far too many things from Lush while simultaneously campaigning for Christingle to be added to the permanent collection.
