Get Lush all over your Body!

It's been a while.  I don't live near a Lush store, so I only get to stock up on some goodies about twice a year! During a business trip to Atlantic City, I stopped by Lush to get a peek at everything and treat myself.

If you are unfamiliar with Lush, it's a company that creates bath products and fragrances, using only vegetarian ingredients - fresh and organic fruits and vegetables, and essential oils.  However, some of their products do contain synthetics - Lush considers them to be "safe".  Whatever that means...

Lush does not test on animals or commission animal testing, nor do they purchase ingredients from companies that test on animals.  The products are handmade using little to no preservatives.

Now, on to the show...

First up, the Twilight Bath Ballistic. It's been out a while, but as I mentioned, I don't get to visit Lush very often. The SA demonstrated this in the store, and I was mesmerized as it swirled, turning blue and started frothing up, filling the air with a sweet vanilla fragrance. I had to have it!

Twilight for a sweet, creamy vanilla scent. 
This is my all time favorite, it's the Honey Bee Bath Bomb!

This is my favorite of all Lush products - with a sweet, caramel scent.
MMM, the rough texture of this Lush Bath Melt sucked me right in!  It does look like a big Marshmellow - good enough to eat!

Apparently there is a Marshmallow Herb?!  Who knew?
I love the combination of marshmallow and cocoa butter!

I might just regret this next purchase, but I simply couldn't resist the slightly citrus scent and dazzling glitter! The downside is, after my bath I'm going to look like a disco ball from 1977, and so is my bathtub!

Sunnyside Bubble Bar, a'la tangerine and mandarin oil.
Some soapy samples!
I love their catalog - it's like a newspaper, but that makes for uneasy reading in the bathtub!

I would never advise anyone to purchase Lush unless you have had a chance to sniff each melt, bomb, soap, etc. in person.  Some of the scents can be overwhelming, and some of the most popular Lush products as seen on YouTube just didn't do it for me.

I haven't used any of these products yet, because at the time of this posting, I have only been back home one day!  So, I'll update this and post some reviews as I use up everything.
