I’m sure we’re all aware of what happens when we go to Lush: we have a plan to get 2 products tops, and then we unsurprisingly end up walking to the cash register with that and more. I only meant to get my hands on a few of their Easter releases (I swear!), but I couldn’t help treating myself to some of their permanent collection as well.
Let’s start with the item I’m most excited about! A lot of reviews said this smelled very woody and kind of like how it smells after it rains, and I can’t agree more. It’s really fitting for the name! Here’s a fun fact: the scent after it rains is called petrichor. It actually comes from an oil that some plants secrete during dry periods, which gets absorbed by soil and rocks. So when it rains, that’s what we’re smelling!
I’ve been more conscious of packaging, so I wanted to try more shampoo bars from Lush. Both the shampoos I’m currently using (Lush Godiva and Bumble&Bumble Surf Foam Wash Shampoo) are pretty heavy on my hair, so I went for Wash Behind Your Ears, which is more clarifying. I’ve used it once so far and it leaves my hair feeling squeaky clean. The ears dissolve in water, and the tail is actually a little pom pom, how cute!
I actually thought this bath bomb was part of the Easter collection, but… it’s not haha. Either way, this smells like how you’d imagine spring to smell like, and I can’t wait to use it!
You all know I love Buffy, but I wanted to try Scrubee for the longest time. Both of these are in-shower exfoliants and moisturizers, and I wanted to see how they compared. I’m a creature of habit so I usually don’t deviate from what works for me, but Scrubee sold out really quickly when it first came out for Mother’s Day. People loved Scrubee so much that they wanted it to stay for good. Lush made it happen, and I wanted to know what it was all about!
I talked about this in the Lush Winter Garden set, and got a small tub this time around. My number one is still Sympathy for the Skin (reviewed here) – I actually wanted to get that one bath bomb (melt?) that went towards trans rights, but it (un-, for me)fortunately sold out. So I went for this as a second choice, where all proceeds go to small grassroots organizations that work with human rights, animal welfare, and environmental conservation. Again, it’s not my favorite scent, but it works really well for dry areas. And it just feels good knowing that my purchase benefits an organization for things I stand for!
