Home Pampering – My Lush Haul

Taking time out to pamper yourself can feel like an indulgence but it shouldn’t be a luxury, it’s really important to look after yourself.  Are you due some home pampering?

Lush is one of my favourite stores – the intermingling gorgeous scents permeate the air, welcoming me in to choose the beauty products that make me feel pampered. I try to enter with a budget in mind and not succumb too much to the enticing range of products available. Today, I’m sharing with you my recent Lush haul.

Cup O’ Coffee – face and body mask

I adore the refreshing aroma of coffee and this mask certainly smells wonderfully fragrant. The Kaolin deeply cleanses impurities from the pores and ground coffee acts as a gentle scrub to buff away dryness and reveal the glowing skin beneath.  I applied it to my face and neck, relaxed for 15 minutes and rinsed with warm water, massaging the scrubbing coffee grounds away.  My skin felt super soft and invigorated.  This is now my favourite Lush product.  At £6.75 for 150ml it will last a few months, so it’s good value for money too.

Golden Handshake – hot hand mask

This promised a decadent soak for my dry hands. It coats hands in pampering warmth with a creamy argan and avocado oil mask.  You don’t need to use the whole hand mask at once, I cut it into thirds, then I boiled hot water and added enough to a bowl (large enough to fit both of my hands in comfortably) to cover the third of the hand mask; I stirred it with a spoon, allowing the treatment to develop and thicken. I made sure the mixture cooled down a little before I plunged my hands into its dreamy, creamy lotion and soaked for around 15 minutes. Oh wow! My hands definitely felt soft and hydrated. I love this product, especially as it is £2.95!

Bubblegum Lip Scrub

This bubblegum lip scrub smells like candy floss. I really like that it gently exfoliated and nourished my dry lips. I can’t stop licking my lips, it tastes good too! It is definitely worth £5.25.

I love my little Lush haul. What’s your favourite pampering product?

Keep smiling 🙂

  1. Lush is one of my favourite shops too! The hand mask sounds really good I’ll have to make sure I get one next time I’m there. My favourite pampering thing are their bath melts, they smell fab and are so moisturising

    A while ago, this Bubble Gum Scrub was my favorite but I guess I need to go back and purchase another one as my lips tend to get dry with this crazy weather in London.

    I love Lush products! Our nearest Lush store is miles away though that is probably a good thing! That lip scrub sounds amazing.

  9. That hand mask looks incredible value – You are right about the scent of Lush being an assault on our senses. Love it.

    I have the bubblegum lip scrub as well. I’m not too sure that it does much but it tastes nice 🙂 The coffee scrub looks amazing, I could practically smell it by looking at it, I am definitely buying tomorrow when we go in to town X

  11. Just wondering if any of you have become allergic to beauty products ? I’m so afraid to put anything on my skin these days in case of a full body rash flaring up. If you have become allergic to products, what ones have you found you can use without it causing a rash ? Thanks x
