LUSH Oxford St. Revealed

Yes, it is true! I went to LUSH Oxford St. in London and basked in all its glory – a three floor LUSH filled with over 200 exclusive products and about 100 employees! I was speechless (no wonder I am having a tough time writing this post). My mother played photographer, while I journeyed around from station to station identifying all the exclusive goods! New face masks, hand creams, bath bombs, lotions, soaps, makeup, lip balm, and more… It was hard not to purchase them all! I went in thinking I would walk away with 5 products, instead, 14!!!

A Woodlands, TX LUSH Haul

How was everyones Easter?! I wanted to start off the week with a haul!!! This has been a long awaited post since I went to this store in March. I was visiting all of my friends and boyfriend in Houston for Spring Break! A LUSH just opened in the past year in Market Street which is in The Woodlands (one of the many suburbs of Houston). I went with my friend Allie to explore this new store!

Ever since I started this blog, my objective has been to review every LUSH product that is around yearly (everything that you can get in the store). I have tried almost all of the products… but some I have not! So this haul consists of repurchases and new purchases! I will specify below:

 

  • Turkish Delight Shower Smoothie: this is actually a new purchase for me. I have always wanted to try this product but I end of giving up when I see the price ($34.95). I did not do that this time though! I just could not pass up the rose smell and my addiction for Shower Smoothies from LUSH has grown significantly!
  • Lip Service Lip Balm: this is also a new purchase. I recently finished my Honey Trap lip balm and needed another balm for my desk! I decided to go with this one since it is the LUSH original lip product!
  • Karma Bubble Bar: this is also a new purchase. Over my time of blogging about LUSH, I have become more and more obsessed with the Karma aroma. They make Karma lotion, soap, perfume, and this bubble bar!
  • Sex Bomb Bath Bomb: this is a repurchase, of course! I decided to get this bath bomb again since I have not yet reviewed it and have not taken a bath with this product in a long time!
  • Mask of Magnaminty Face Mask: this is also a repurchase. My first Mask of Magnaminty was the larger pot (which took me quite a while to use up). One bummer about this product is that it only lasts about three months. So this time, I decided to go for the smaller pot! This is a classic face mask!
  • Avobath Bath Bomb: this is actually a new purchase. I have heard so much about this bath bomb from other LUSH bloggers. So, I decided it was time for me to try it and review!
  • You Snap The Whip Body Butter: this is a repurchase. I am in LOVE with this LUSH body butter. It smells exactly like the Sweetie Pie shower jelly and exfoliates very well. I will be reviewing this product ASAP!
  • Vanilla Delite Body Lotion: this is a new purchase. I heard a lot about this body lotion over the holidays. So, I decided I should check it out! I also have become more and more obsessed with body lotions from LUSH because they work wonders for your skin!
  • Cynthia Sylvia Stout Shampoo: this is a new purchase. I have tried every other LUSH liquid shampoo and this was the only one left! I like it so far… I have been using it quite much in the shower! I really enjoy getting LUSH products in the smallest size so I can try a bunch at once! It is perfect for product reviews!

This was a pretty fantastic haul if you ask me! I really enjoyed meeting that sales associates in this store. They were very very sweet! Also on this shopping excursion, I stopped in one of my favorite clothing stores called Madewell. I learned in this store that LUSH and Madewell were partnering up for an evening to party! I wish I could have attended that night! Check out the Facebook post I found about this event:

NYC LUSH Haul

So since I am feeling a bit down today, I thought that it was time for a wonderful haul post! I went shopping at the LUSH in Herald Square, NYC about two weeks ago. I got a bunch of goodies! Some I have used and some I am still waiting to use!

Here is the haul:

  • Blackberry bath bomb – I have not tried this bath ballistic in a while. It was actually one of the first bath bombs created by Cosmetics-To-Go that branched over to LUSH! It is a classic blackberry scent (which I adore) with a hidden message in the center! I cannot wait to review this bath bomb.
  • Porridge soap – I have never ever tried this soap! The sales lady helping me talked me into it! It does smell great and looks like it even has an exfoliating texture. I got a brand new slice from the huge bar!
  • Decisive lip color – I also went for a new lipstick in the Emotional Brilliance line. As you can tell in the picture, this one is super red but has a great shimmer to it! Surprisingly, I have been wearing it a bit!
  • Vanillary perfume – I had to purchase this… the smell is so comforting and perfect for the cold winter months! This is only my second LUSH perfume. Someday, I want to try all of them! Cannot wait to review this spray. I got it in the .3 oz since (spray stick).
  • Jungle solid conditioner – I just finished the Big solid conditioner in the shower yesterday! I wanted to repurchase it but decided to try Jungle first! I have not used it yet but looking forward to how it works!
  • T’eo solid deodorant – This is another new product for me! I have only tried the Coconut deodorant from LUSH (which I love). I like how this one is in a solid bar form which is super super easy to use (especially under the arms). I use this deodorant before I go to bed and love it! The scent is super fresh.
  • Sample time! – Cynthia Sylvia Stout shampoo is the sample I picked! This is the only liquid shampoo from LUSH that I have not tried… I already used it and was not sure I loved the smell or noticed anything special with my hair! But I might try it out again for sure.

I had a great experience shopping at the adorable LUSH store in Herald Square. This is my go-to LUSH store in NYC because it is super, super close to Penn Station! Only one block away I think… I loved this trip so much I took some pictures of the store and the lovely sales lady who was helping me. Let me know if you have ever shopped at this LUSH location in the heart of NYC:

Woodlands, Texas LUSH Haul

Hello all!!! Sorry I did not post yesterday, I was in New Jersey visiting a fiend from school. So to make up for it, I will post a mini LUSH haul from my trip to Houston, TX this past holiday.

Here is what I got:

  • LUSH Life Woodlands tote – I LOVE this bag!!!! I have never seen a LUSH tote like this one before. It says, “Living the LUSH LIfe! Woodlands.” The store I went to was a brand new addition to Market Street (a upper class shopping center in Woodlands, TX). The bag also has a few of their staple products on it Dream Cream, Happy Hippy, some soap, fresh fruit and the Big Blue signature bath bomb!
  • Happy Hippy shower gel – I just realized that I purchased the shower gel on the tote! Surprisingly, I have not yet tried Happy Hippy shower gel… But the smell is phenomenal! It has a great citrus scent. Very fresh and phenomenal for the shower! Review will be up soon!
  • Believe lipstick – I could not pass up this beautiful, electric pink shade! I tried it on in the store and was with my boyfriend who loved, loved it! This is my third lip stick purchase from the Emotional Brilliance line! I am planning on reviewing them all very soon!

Here is a picture of the store: (Sorry this one was taken late at night!) – You can see the bright LUSH letters! They were almost blinding!

This was a very small mini haul, but a good one! All the products I got are great and the tote is just phenomenal!!!! The Woodlands is almost my home town so that is my new home town LUSH Store! I have already lugged around the tote shopping! I actually just went to LUSH again and purchased more products (surprise) to share with y’all very soon! Where is your hometown store located?
