LUSH Haul from Melbourne

These are the only things that I got from my Melbourne trip. When I first knew that I was going to visit Melbourne, I knew that I had to get something from LUSH. I even visited all 3 LUSH stores in Melbourne, yeah I'm crazy like that. The first time I stepped into the LUSH store, I felt like a little girl in a candy shop. I finally know why everyone loves LUSH, it's really addicting! I wanted to sniff all the stuffs and try them one by one, but of course I didn't :p. I only got a few stuffs to try and even my parents got a couple of soaps too, I'd enabled them :D.

LUSH haul!

It's the best scent ever! The sweet honey and toffee scent is really addicting and I couldn't stop smelling it. Even though I haven't tried the soap yet but I know that I'm going to love it!

It has a very refreshing citrus-y scent which I really love. The scent is so strong that it's overpowering other soaps' scents. Like HIWTK soap, I haven't had a chance to try this but it's going to be a love!

I've read some reviews for this soap that it's great for exfoliating and for dry skin, and I got it as I have really dry skin on my arms and legs area. It has a really sweet scent and I really like it. Will have to try it soon to see if it really works.

After reading some reviews about how good LUSH solid shampoos are, I decided to get one. The SA recommended this solid shampoo to me when I told her I have oily hair. I've been using this shampoo ever since I got it and I really like it! It cleans my hair really well, keeps my scalp oil-free and it also gives my hair shine! It lathers up super well with just a few swipes which really impressed me. Jumping Juniper smells really good, it has a citrus-y scent but the scent doesn't last long on me. Bottom line,  I'll definitely try more of LUSH solid shampoos!

It's the best selling cleanser from LUSH and I knew I had to get one to try. At first I thought the lavender scent was a bit too strong (I never really like lavender scent) but after a few uses, I got over the scent. After using this cleanser, my skin feels really clean and soft and I love that it also works as a gentle exfoliator. The only downside is probably that it doesn't help to control the excessive sebum secretion.

I have very oily and acne prone skin, I told the SA about my skin type and she recommended Coalface to me. As I've heard good reviews for this cleanser, I decided to try it. I've tried it and I'm sold. It cleans my skin really well and this cleanser is the only cleanser that keep my skin staying matte and oil-free for a longer time. The only thing that I don't like from this cleanser is the scent, I can't really describe it but it's definitely not a pleasant scent for me. I've tried using this soap by lathering it between my hands but it didn't work. Then I tried to use a face net which I learned from Kay of Cosmeddicted on this post, and it works really great! By using this method, it's not messy at all like what people's complained about.

Just rubbed a little bit of the soap on the face net.

And it lathers really well! Definitely love this product!

That's it for this post. Till next time!

Nice haul! :]
I purchased the porridge soap some time ago and still haven't used it yet! Hmm..I guess it'll be great for now since my skin is very dry lol
Please tell us about Honey I washed the kids soap! I was thinking about getting that one also :D

I love using a face net! It makes cleansing so much easier. Except I'd rather have the kind you have and the one Kay has b/c mine (which is like a net/baggy with 3 balls) is harder get the foam out >__<

I always know when I'm walking in the direction of lush stores because I can always smell it way before I arrive! :3
I want to try their shampoo haha :P

RicAdeMus said...

That must be a great store. I can't think of a store I would want to visit 3 diferent locations while traveling. Maybe a cool electronics store.

That will sound silly, but many Lush products look like cheese to me--they make me hungry. =)

I hope you're having a nice weekend. The weather is beautiful here, so I'm headed outside.

sssdawna said...

i hated the honey soap (and the other soap i tried) so i steer clear of their bar soaps.

i love angels on bare skin and use it throughout the week! : )

thanks for telling us about the shampoo bar because i've been eyeing them for awhile...

wow that does lather well, i had no idea!

have you tried their hair conditioners?

i love their bath bombs, bubble bars, and the face lotion "imperialis"...i wish there was a lush by me!

Denysia said...

I love Honey I washed the kids soap! I have it too!

And coalface cleanser is the best ever! YAY! :)

Shop N' Chomp said...

The coalface one seems interesting, i might have to try that out soon :P

Blovet Beauty said...

Lush makes heavenly soaps and u bought almost all my favourite ones. Do try sultana and rocksar if u have the chance - smells amazing too

ashura said...

Great stuff! I am most interested in the face soap, because the foam seems so fluffy! Does it make your face feel tight since it seems to control oil well?

slowbrogal said...

I want all ur Lush Dina!! Haha..I got a porridge soup and it melted..only last me 1month++..

MKL said...

That porridge soap looks like a candy I once tried. :)

Calia Yang said...

Fruity Lashes said...

oh yay great haul. i really liked to sniff around in lush stores but i'm not buying any lush products anymore. they're a little too harsh for me.

Kalmo said...

Hi Dina!

What a lovely skin care haul, so many goodies. I love the scent of the honey soap too. Your camera takes really good quality pictures btw! Your review has me wanting to try solid shampoo as well. LUSH is such a cute store.

Jennifer said...

Thanks Dina! do you own a red gloss?

MEOW said...

hey! oil control on the silky bb cream is pretty good!! i only have to blot my face around lunch time during work! and the bb cream actually stays on my face when im blotting.

Imo said...

AMAZING! i love coal face but im going to try it with a net too to get super lucious bubbles like that!

mookxi.com said...

Haha, I live in Melbourne and I've never once bought anything there for myself ! I bought some sea salt shampoo for my friend for her birthday because she was complaining that her her was so flat and apparently it helps ! The store assistant gave me two samples of face masks and I didn't like it so never went back but maybe I should try again sometime ! Great review !

Karen said...

omg Dina, I'm totally drooling while scrolling through your pics right now.. when I see the images right away I remember the scents of the LUSH store :)'' please do some reviews on these... you're making me crave some soap haha

Nic Nic said...

i used to use face net too! they foam up the prods so well :) thanks for the review!

izumi said...

WOW that really foams up really well! nice haul ^0^

Dizzy said...

nice haul!

Natalie Nguyen said...

Okay.. I think I might be missing out or something. I'm guessing others would say how fortunate it is for me to have all these Lush stores around me, but to this date, I have not even bought a single Lush item D= The horror!
