My first Lush haul - Am I a proper blogger now?

lush haul

I bet you're all sick of seeing Lush hauls by now aren't you? Wellll here's another one to add to the ever growing pile. (Title's a joke by the way, I love Lush as much as the next person).

I'm a fan of Lush but I don't often go in and purchase anything because A) I find the staff a little bit too smiley and helpful (God I'm such a grinch) and B) Jody always starts complaing about the smell after being in store a millisecond so I can't have a proper browse without him moaning.

I wouldn't normally order online because I despise paying delivery charges but this month I'm trying to save money so I'm avoiding shops - My reasoning is that if I pay the £3.95 delivery charge it's probably saved me £50 because I won't be popping into Primark or Topshop afterwards...That makes sense doesn't it? Sort of?

Anyways, here's what I bought.

lush lover lamp bath bomb

'Lover Lamp' bath bomb - £4.25
Ingredients - Cocoa Butter, Vanilla Absolute, Brazillian Orange Oil

I actually wanted to buy this last year but as I'd only been back in the country a few weeks I couldn't really afford to be splurging on fancy bath bombs. At £4.25 it isn't exactly cheap and I won't lie, I felt a little bit sick paying for it but I'm glad I bought it because it smells heavenly. I haven't used it yet as I feel that as it was so expensive it should be saved for a special occasion (i.e. when Jody goes out for the night and I can have a bath in peace and read a book).

lush the kiss lip scrub

'The Kiss' lip scrub - £5.75
Ingredients - Sicillian Mandarin Oil, Cocoa Butter, Fine Sea Salt

I'm constantly chewing on my lip and this nasty little habit has left my lips feeling a little bit gross so I decided it was time to invest in some of Lush's lip scrub. The little hearts on top are a little bit annoying and I wouldn't advise that you eat them as they are rancid but I do really like the scrub itself. It's really sweet and sugary but unlike the bubblegum one it isn't sickly so you'll probably find yourself using a touch more than necessary. The scrub really does the job and I can't wait to see some real results after a bit more use.

lush butterball bath bomb

'Butterball' bath bomb - £2.75
Ingredients - Cocoa Butter, Ylang Ylang Oil

This is actually a repurchase as I first received a butterball in my sister's baby shower gift bag last year and fell in love with it. It's a really non offensive, gentle scent and the cocoa butter leaves your skin feeling super soft. At £2.75 it's one of Lush's cheaper, smaller offerings but don't be fooled by it's size as it's really good.

lush elbow grease

'Elbow Grease' moisturising bar - £5.95
Ingredients - Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, Cupuacu, Orange Flower Absolute, Ylang Ylang Oil

Jody and I have both recently been tattooed and after reading some glowing reviews of the Elbow Grease bar I decided to invest in it. I've kept it in the wrapper and just apply it to my tattoo like you would a roll on deodorant and I can really tell the difference before and after using it. It'll be interesting to see what it looks like after continuous use over time.

Lush products are lovely but they're definitely more of a payday treat but now that I've made one order I'm a bit worried that I've opened Pandora's box and I'm gunna be buying stuff left, right and centre but oh well. Do you have any recommendations for me?
