I went to Lush twice this week and picked up some stuff that I've never used before. They still had some of their Christmas stuff but I mostly bought full priced items. I would probably never pay Lush prices for any other brand of bath and hair stuff but for some reason when I go to Lush... all my common sense goes out the window. I mean.. who really needs 9 blocks of soap?...
I'm most excited about the I Love Juicy shampoo that I picked up. It has mango, pineapple, kiwi fruit and papaya in it but it kind of reminds me of orange juice.. I love orange juice so much that I'd wash my hair with it if I could :P This was $20.50 for a 250mL bottle. I think the 100mL bottles look kind of pathetic and the 500mL ones are too big! (but way better value for money). I wish they came in a 300 or 350mL bottle.

"All new life affirming shampoo for more shine than you thought possible"
Loosely paraphrasing the Lush description: 50% of Big is seas salt which is used for shine, softness and big endowments (huh? Can someone please explain what big endowments means?). It gives limp hair more volume, the seaweed infusion softens hair and the fresh lime juice makes your hair shiny.
I picked it up on my second visit and it was $25.95 for a 330g tub.
|Soap bars and Sparkle|
The green ones are Noubar Soap. It's inspired by nougat and has chopped peanuts, walnuts and almonds in it. For some reason, I thought that it had pistachios in it so I bought 3... They were $3.48/100g
The two long ones on the right and the one right in the middle are Mr Punch. I believe that this is a fruit punch inspired soap. It was originally $59/kg but I got it for half price. The promotional pictures on their US website look way better than the real thing!

The soap in the top left hand corner and at the bottom of the middle row are The Godmother. Lush describes the scent as being similar to the "best selling Snow Fairy shower gel". This is $6.50/100g.
I also got Sparkle which is from the Toothy Tab range. They're basically chewable solid toothpaste tabs. These were $2.20/box.
And lastly, I picked up the Buffy body butter. This is an exfoliating scrub with rice, almonds and beans in it. After using this in the shower, you don't need to moisturise afterwards :) This would be amazing in winter when it's freezing cold and I can't be bothered to moisturise as all I want to do is run and jump in bed :P I thought that it was really expensive at $15.95/block. Each block weighs 90g.
I also got the Lush body butter tin to go with it so that Buffy won't melt in the shower when I'm not using it. The tins retail for $5.95 each but I'm going to try and find something cheaper for my soaps :)
What other Lush stuff should I try? I want to get a good conditioner for dry hair.
