I’ve been meaning to do a haul post for months now, but as I kept adding to it, I didn’t know where to start! So here’s what I got.
The Body Shop Haul
Satsuma Shower Gel
Way back in early July, the Body Shop had a tonne of sales on which I took advantage of. The first thing I got is this huge 750ml bottle of Satsuma Shower Gel. It’s one of my favourite scents that the Body Shop do as it’s so refreshing.
With the sales on and by using a discount code, I got this bottle for around £4. I haven’t started to use it yet, but it should last me ages.
Passion Fruit Shower Gel
As I loved the Body Shop’s Passion Fruit Body Butter so much, I knew I had to give these shower gels a try. I’ve used one so far and it’s just as lovely as the Body Butter. It’s sweet without being sickly and the smell stays long after washing.
Papaya and Early-Harvest Raspberry Shower Gels
The last of the shower gels from the Body Shop! I decided to buy two shower gels I’ve never tried before as they were on offer and again these smell amazing. The Raspberry products are often mentioned by other bloggers, so it’s about time I tried something from the range.
Papaya Body Butter
Despite not needing another Body Butter, I again decided to take advantage of the sales and buy a scent I’ve never tried before.
This was a bit of an impulse purchase as I browsed in store one day. As I’d never tried a Facial Massager, I wanted to see if this would help my moisturisers sink into my skin better and improve my circulation. So far I haven’t noticed any difference when I’ve used this, but I’ll persevere to see if I see results.
The Lush Haul
Creamy Candy Bubble Bar
An oldie but a goldie. This Creamy Candy Bubble Bar has long been one of my favourites, as it has a gorgeously sweet scent and makes my bath pink and bubbly.
Mmmelting Marshmallow Moment Bath Melt
I’ve always bypassed this bath melt as it’s teeny tiny, but as I’ve already tried most of Lush’s other products, I decided to give this a go.
It smells similar to the Creamy Candy Bar I mentioned above, but I found this product disappointing. It has almost no scent once it’s in the bath and added no bubbles or colour.
Cloak of Invisibility Bath Oil
This is an online and flagship store exclusive, so I picked this up when I was in the Oxford Street store. Again it’s a tiny product, but it made more of an impact on my bath than the Marshmallow Moment Bath Melt did.
Not only could I smell notes of Jasmine and Rosewood once I got into the bath, but the oils in this product made my skin feel nourished. That said the overall scent wasn’t my favourite, so I wouldn’t hurry to buy this again.
Sweetie Pie Shower Jelly
I ordered this online from the Lush Kitchen as it was my favourite Shower Jelly before it was discontinued. It smells of blackcurrant and cherries and reminds me of the Comforter Bubble Bar.
Refresher Shower Jelly
My favourite Shower Jelly from Lush’s current range is this one. It has an uplifting scent of lemon, so I picked up a small pot of this.
Candy Floss Showder
This is another item I picked up in the Oxford Street store. It’s a two in one product that can be used as a body wash and as a scrub. The overall scent is a mix of the Candy Bubble Bar and the popular Snow Fairy scent.
Mint Julips Lip Scrub
Lush’s Lip Scrubs are my favourites, so I can’t believe I’ve never tried this one before. It has a delectable mint-choc chip scent, that smells good enough to eat.
Catastrophe Cosmetic Fresh Face Mask
I’ve tried face masks from Lush in the past and found they didn’t make much difference to my skin, however, this mask is amazing! It’s super gentle, as well as being amazing at clearing and brightening skin.
Smuggler’s Soul Facial Scrub
This is another item I ordered from the Lush Kitchen. It was initially released for Father’s Day and I bought it as I read it’s a gentle scrub. So far from using it, I have to agree. It’s creamy in texture and the particles are as small as grains of sand, so it’s not a harsh or abrasive scrub.
L’Oreal Sexy Balm in As If!
Despite the slightly dodgy name, I’ve been using this and love it. It’s not as dry as a lipstick or as glossy as a lipgloss, but it’s really comfortable to wear. The rosy colour of this is also flattering.
L’Oreal Infallible Fixing Mist
I’d been on the hunt for this Fixing Mist for quite some time, as it was never in any stores near me. So far I’ve found this disappointing as my makeup doesn’t seem to last any longer when I spray this on top, if anything it seems to wear off quicker! I’ll keep using this spray to see if my opinion changes.
Real Techniques 2 Miracle Mini Eraser Sponges
I always use Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge, so I was pretty excited when I saw these mini ones for the under eye area. I’ll do a review once I’ve tried them out.
Zoella Sweet Inspirations Sugar Dip Scented Bath Salt Granules
I mentioned in a recent post that I love Zoella’s Sweet Inspirations range and in particular these Bath Salts. They have a sweet almond and macaroon scent and I use these in my bath most days.
The Boots Haul
Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara
I’ve heard so much about this mascara and how amazing it is, so I finally picked it up!
Lanolips Lemonaid Lip Treatment and Peach 101 Ointment
I’ve mentioned in quite a few posts that Lanolips Lemonaid Lip Treatment is my favourite lip balm. Not only does it smell great, but it contains lemon oil to exfoliate and smooth lips.
I got the Peach 101 Ointment free when I bought the Lemonaid lip balm and it also smells fantastic. It’s so thick and nourishing, it can be used on lips, cuticles and dry patches of skin.
Soap & Glory Sugar Crush Shower Jellies
Since these Shower Jellies came out a few months back, I’ve been obsessed with them. Sugar Crush has a lime and kiwi scent and the product is such a fun, easy to use jelly texture.
Soap & Glory Smoothie Star Scrub
When I ordered the Shower Jellies online, Soap & Glory had some offers on, so I added this to my basket to try. I haven’t used this body scrub yet, but it smells amazing, just like maple syrup.
Soap & Glory Sugar Crush Scrub
I also added this scrub to my basket, as I’ve never tried it before. It has the same gorgeous lime and kiwi scent as the Shower Jellies mentioned above.
Starburst Pina Colada Candle
I got this when I was on holiday in Caister last month. I spent a while trying to win this in an arcade with no luck, when one of the staff handed me one for free! It has such a fresh pineapple scent, I’ve been burning this daily.
John Lewis Mason Jar
I love drinking refreshing lemonade and other cold drinks in the summer from a Mason Jar, so I picked this one up.
That’s the first part of my Shopping Haul complete. Let me know what bits you love.
