Sweetie Pie Shower Jelly

I decided to take a break from reviewing facial moisturizers! I just have one more left, Skin Drink! That will probably be my next post though. Today I wanted to venture to a LUSH shower jelly. Not gel everyone, a JELLY! Here are two pictures of my Sweetie Pie Shower Jelly clear pot:

IMG_4163IMG_4164

 

TEXTURE: This shower jelly feels exactly like a jelly. It is very slippery, smooth and is a solid. I love the idea of this jelly since it is pretty unique and I have never seen any other beauty company create anything like it! I purchased the large 8.5 oz. pot and I have had it FOREVER!

AROMA: The reason why I bought such a large size of this jelly was for the smell. It is one of my all time favorite LUSH aromas! It smells very very sweet with a hint of cherries. For some reason, it reminds me of my childhood! I must of had a lip gloss that smelled similar to this!

USE: So many of you might be thinking how one would use this in a shower. Personally, I take out a decent chunk of the jelly and then blend it in my wash cloth. My sister uses it a completely different way. She takes the entire jelly out of the pot and then just spreads that on her body. I think I am way to chicken to do that afraid I will loose some of the product!  I have also heard of people putting this jelly in the freezer and then using it to cool off in the summer time! I will for sure need to check that out this summer.

INGREDIENTS: The fresh ingredients in this jelly are cherry infusion, coconut infusion, cassis absolute, cypress oil and a lot more! The cherry and coconut smells are definitely the strongest.

FUN FACT: The shower jellies were introduced for LUSH’s 10th Anniversary in 2005. They have had a bunch around different times. The three available online right now are Whoosh, Sweetie Pie and a retro one, Party On. I have also seen some limited edition, retro ones come out around Halloween (I think one is called Ghost?). I found a great LUSH blog post that talks about this which you can find here.

Have you tried any of the LUSH shower jellies yet?! How do you use them?!

LUSH Coolaulin Conditioner Review

Hello all! So today I wanted to review something that I used in my shower last night and fell in love with!!! It is the LUSH Retro Coolaulin conditioner. I had mixed feelings about trying this product but was so excited that it was basically advertised as a coconut conditioner!

Here are images of my product:

IMG_4676IMG_4677

 

Positives:

  • Great smell – If you are a fan of coconut or LUSH’s Coconut deodorant, you would love this conditioner because it smells exactly like those! That was a major positive aspect of the product because it made your shower smell like a palm tree and your hair also smells great for a while!
  • Great results – I also loved how clean this conditioner made my hair. When I woke up this morning my hair was so clean and perfectly, naturally curled! It also still has a hint of coconut smell in it!

Negatives:

  • Too tangly – The only really negative about this conditioner is that it made my hair extremely ratted when I got out of the shower. I even sprayed de-tangler on my and it was a painful 5 minutes to brush out!

Overall, I really really enjoyed this hair product from LUSH. It is a great tropical conditioner for naturally wavy hair. My only main comment and concern is that the conditioner is a bit watery and it was hard to brush out my hair after use. I highly suggest this LUSH Retro product for anyone who wants to venture beyond all the popular LUSH store products! Let me know if you have tried any Retro products from LUSH and how you like them!

The Medicine Cabinet Storage

Hello all! I hope everyone is getting off on a good start to the week. For me, I only have a week of school left! How exciting! Then I get to shop, shop and shop more for Christmas presents.

I have been meaning to show my LUSH face products in my medicine cabinet:

These are all the LUSH goodies in my face collection:

  • Let The Good Times Roll facial cleanser
  • Angles on Bare Skin facial cleanser
  • Coal Face facial cleanser
  • Ultraband facial cleanser
  • Celestial facial moustirizer
  • Skin Shangri La moustirizer
  • Ultrabalm
  • Mint Julep lip scrub
  • Gorgeous facial moustirizer sample
  • Full of Grace
  • Breath of Fresh Air toner
  • Eyes Right eye cream
  • Grease Lighting spot treatment
  • 9 to 5 facial cleanser
  • Sparkle toothy tabs
  • Lemon Flutter cuticle cream sample

I never realized how much that is! I switch the products I use daily. For instance, if I am in the mood for something sweet I use Let The Good Times Roll and Gorgeous (which I finally splurged on in my last haul). Angles on Bare Skin is also a great everyday cleanser. I highly suggest it. Also, if you have never tried any LUSH moisturizers, they are seriously phenomenal. This LUSH section is the bottom shelf in my medicine cabinet.

I also think it is cool to show what beauty products I have above my LUSH stash:

For the bottom shelf I have all of my contact stuff (contacts, contact case, contact solution, etc.). Also on this shelf are my teeth whitening tools, cotton swabs and lotion wipes (I am still contemplating whether I like these).

I also have a few Victoria Secret lotions (one is a self tanner in the smell Love Spell and the other is just a normal lotion). I also have a Pacifica self tanning lotion in Coconut Pearl. I also have some Neutrogena body oil, St. Ives exfoliating whips, Pssst! dry shampoo, Clean and Clear morning burst facial cleanser, H2O toner and Neutrogena toner.

I use all of these products weekly. But normally, the LUSH shelf is the most used!

Tata for now! Let me know if y’all enjoy these types of posts.

LUSH Coconut Review

In the Drawer of LUSH post, I raved on and on about the Coconut deodorant that I reach for almost everyday. 

Here is the product:

IMG_3785

 

This bottle is the 2.3 oz. deodorant. Some of you might question a power/dusting like form of deodorant, but it works the same as solid deodorant and even better in some cases. For example, this deodorant does not leave marks on your clothing, etc. 

IMG_3786

 

Here is the product description right from the bottle. In this picture, it is closer and therefore easier to tell that the product is just a white powder. But as the name gives it away this is one “coconutty deodorizer!” I love the smell of sweet coconuts so this is a perfect smell to have on my body all day! 

According to LUSH, they put many different coconut extracts in this products. It is also a good product to use for stinky feet! (i have never used Coconut for that before).

I just wanted to finish by saying thank you to this compounder, Drew!! I really enjoy using this product! I am sure there are a lot of other LUSHie’s out there who also love this product! 

Samples On Samples

For those of you who have never been to a LUSH store or ordered products online, they give you many many samples! Sometimes you can pick the sample while other times they already have pre-made samples. Today, I will show two examples of samples that I got from some of my latest LUSH hauls! 

Example #1: These samples were actually given to me. I did not pick the products to try. Since the marker wore off, two of the samples were Happy Happy Joy Joy conditioner and one sample was Its Raining Men shower gel.

  • I actually am a huge fan of the conditioner and have one of the 16.9 oz. bottles. I highly suggest Happy Happy Joy Joy to anyone who is a fan of floral aromas.
  • For Its Raining Men, I have never tried it! I did enjoy the shower gel but it was a little to sweet for me. If you are a lover of LUSH’s Honey I Wash The Kids Soap, then this is the perfect shower gel for you!

Example #2: For these samples, I told them what I wanted to try out.

  • As you can tell, the first product I tried was Whoosh shower jelly. I loved it! I have a big pot of the Sweetie Pie shower jelly but I think my next purchase will have to be Whoosh! It is very minty and fresh. I have heard that it is great to freeze and use in the shower over the summer.
  • The other sample is Curly Wurly hair shampoo. I am a huge fan of the smell and texture of the shampoo (coconut lover right here) but, it was not for me. I felt like it did not do the job to clean my hair. Also, I think this product was made for people with really curly or frizzy hair.
  • The final sample is Turkish Delight shower smoothie. I actually really enjoyed using this shower smoothie and would recommend it to anyone. But be warned… it is a more expensive shower smoothie from LUSH.

Let me know what samples you have been trying and which ones you would recommend for my next LUSH purchase! 

 

In The Nude Bath Trio

With the start of the dry and cold winter air, I decided to celebrate the beginning of this season with a special bath trio! Recently I purchased the Retro, In The Nude bath melt because according to LUSH, it is used “for dry, sore or irritated skin.” I have an obsession with bath melts and thought that this one would be very beneficial for the winter months.

Here is the link to In The Nude: http://www.lushusa.com/In-The-Nude/02160,en_US,pd.html#q=In%2520The%2520Nude&start=1

Besides In The Nude, the trio was:

  1.  In The Nude bath melt
  2. Lavender bath confetti
  3. Tulip bubble stick

IMG_3689

I purchased the lavender confetti at a store in Rhinebeck, NY called Merriweathers. If you are not from the NY area, I am sure that you would not have a problem at all finding confetti online.

The other product I used in the bath was the Tulip bubble bar on a stick from the LUSH Easter collection. LUSH is not selling this product anymore but they have the Magic Wand bubble bar stick in their Christmas collection, which I am sure is the same. For this product, you put it under the faucet and then all of the bubbles start to form as the tub fills up.

I really enjoyed this bath trio. The water was extra hydrating and soothing from the In The Nude bath melt. The Tulip bubble stick also added all of the bubbles and added the smell one of my favorite LUH products, Yuzu and Cocoa bubble bar. Finally, the bath confetti added a bit of fun and made the tub look pretty.
