LUSH Oxford St. Haul

It is official! I’ve tried ALL of my Oxford St. goodies! This calls for another exclusive LUSH re-stock.

It is bittersweet to see some classic LUSH products (Grass Shower Gel, Phoenix Rising Bath Bomb, and You Snap The Whip Body Butter- full list) retiring. On the bright side, Oxford goodies will FINALLY be available in North America to replace these cult classics. Any ideas to what the new products will be??

Anyways… time to get back on track with this haul. I am surprised I did not by the entire store, especially the 200 limited edition, exclusive products (take a peak inside LUSH Oxford Street in my earlier post). Promising myself to only purchase unknown goods, I ended up with 14 products: 8 featured in this blog, and 6 more in the next!

  • Rub Rub Rub Solid Body Scrub – A three star product! Very course, with little moisture. Check out my earlier review for details!
  • Layer Cake Soap – A piece of heaven (for all fruit lovers). I am a sucker for anything fruit scented! Each layer in this soap consists of a different fruit juice, think lemon, lime, blueberry, strawberry, cranberry, and orange! Definitely a product to get, since it not only smells delicious, but also lathers well.
  • Milky Bubble Bar – You cannot beat a fresh scent! Ironically, I am not a huge milk drinker, but this Bubble Bar is a favorite: fresh scent, milky bubbles, + silver glitter. What more do you need?
  • Karma Bubble Bar – A famous LUSH scent in bubble form. Although, I believe LUSH has a Karma Bubble Bar now, but it is not as extravagant as this one! A mountain of Karma goodness complied of lemongrass, orange, and patchouli sounds.
  • Sugar Daddy-O Solid Conditioner – As a blonde, I am a major fan of the dark violet Daddy-O shampoo that spruces up any tired locks. Thus, this product was a must! Easy application, same scent, and no package waste – a shower essential for any blonde.
  • Intergalactic Bath Bomb – A fresh scent with a pop of color! I could not pass up this vibrant blue bomb with hints of neon. This Bath Bomb will create the perfect”OMG” moment for any LUSHie!!
  • The Experimenter Bath Bomb -Heptagon, rainbow swirl. A bath bomb filled with color, and more color! Nothing like it currently at LUSH Cosmetics. P.S. – this was the product showcased in The Experimenter video.
  • Wash That Man Right Out Of My Hair Shower Gel – A strong Olive Branch! I fell in love the second I smelt this glorious, rich product. Keeping the same idea behind Olive Branch Shower Gel – this product is infused with various oils that make for a luxurious wash.
  • Lord Of Misrule Shower Gel – Cult favorite scent! Like the above product, I am also in LOVE with this shower gel! I use it only for rare occasions, since I need some to partner with a Lord of Misrule Bath Bomb (when I find one)!

Must Try Bath: Lord of Misrule

The LUSH bath bomb, Lord of Misrule has been out for quite a while now! I believe they first showcased in October for the Halloween collection and then have stayed up until now. I do not believe you can order them anymore on the LUSH USA website. Although, a lot of the LUSH store locations around North America still have them in stock for a short period of time! Lord of Misrule is a MUST try LUSH bath! It honestly is one of my favorite bath bombs.

AROMA: The smell of this bath bomb is phenomenal because it is spicy, sweet, and earthly at once! I love love love the earthy spicy scent. I believe the patchouli in the product makes this mysterious, dark scent! The aroma is also pretty powerful… you can smell it on your skin even when you get out of the bath!

BATH WATER: Lord of Misrule turns your bath water a deep purple (like above). A lot of people say it is like you are bathing in wine! I have to agree… the water is so rich in color and aroma it is a definite treat! Surprisingly, this green bath bomb has an intense center that has purple powder in it! Also, the bubbles in my bath above are not from this bath bomb because I added some bubble bath to the water! I just love my bubbles!

INSPIRATION: This bath bomb is based off of the ruler for the Pagan Feast of Fools. Like I said above, the green layer covers the wine colored center which has popping candies in it that pop and fizz throughout your bath! You can actually hear these candies popping to… it is very similar to eating pop rocks! By the way, you cannot physically feel the pop rocks popping, therefore, it does not hurt! You just can hear them!

LIMITED EDITION: My introduction for this post also talked about how this product first appeared in the LUSH Halloween collection and has been available since. Recently though, LUSH USA just took them off line. Although, many of the LUSH store locations still have a few left! Go stock up (I recently bought five of them at the LUSH on Lexington Ave., NYC)!

INGREDIENTS: This bath bomb has many ingredients that make it truly unique! These are the fair trade vanilla absolute, cream of tartar, popping candy, black pepper oil, patchouli oil, gardenia extract and so much more!

If you have tried Lord of Misrule, share your experience with me! Hopefully, LUSH sees how positive the feedback is for this product and they bring it back permanently!

 

Mohegan Sun LUSH Haul

How many of you bloggers have ever been to the Mohegan Sun Casino in Connecticut?! Well it is a completely different world there. I went with my mom to a Luke Bryan concert there and had a BLAST! I even went shopping at LUSH after the concert… we walked out of the venue at 11:35 right to the LUSH entrance… and it was OPEN! I was baffled! Shopping at LUSH at midnight?! It was a dream come true. I dragged my mom into the store and got these goodies:

  • Chocolate Whipstick lip balm – this stuff is AMAZING. Definitely one of my favorite LUSH products. Review to come very soon!
  • Skin Drink moisturizer – I have been looking for this product forever… they are always sold out in NYC. Excited to try this on my dry face!
  • Perspective lip stick – this is a great color. I have been wearing it daily since I purchased it! This liquid lip stick is a part of the Emotional Brilliance line.
  • Figs and Leaves soap – my goal is to try all of the year round LUSH soaps. I have not yet tried this one yet but it smells great!
  • Dragon’s Egg bath bomb – I have not purchased this bath bomb in a while! Really excited to do a review on this one!
  • Lord of Misrule bath bomb – this is an all time favorite of mine… I got this around Halloween and loved it so much I had to repurchase! Will definitely be doing a review on this before they are sold out! Remember, this bath bomb is only limited edition!
  • SMAPLE – Handy Gurugu hand cream – I am not a big hand cream person so I decided to sample this one before I buy the large pot if I like it!

So this was an awesome way to end an already great concert and day! I love LUSH and anytime I see one I have to go in and meet the sales associates and talk LUSH! Here is the beautiful store in the middle of the bustling casino with my mom in front and the lovely ladies who helped me out (sorry if the pictures are a bit blurry – my camera lens was dirty!):

And… for those of you who are Luke Bryan fans… he threw a phenomenal concert! One of the best I have ever ever seen! Check him out! He really knew how to get a crowd excited:
