So in just a couple of days I’ll be on my way and IN London! I’m still super excited and have already been thinking about what I have my eye on to buy from the Lush Oxford Street store. I’ll only be visiting once (MAYBE twice if we can) and as me and my boyfriend will be wanting to walk around other places and do other things I don’t want to be in there forever. Plus if I budget, I can save money as I don’t want to spend a fortune in there.
So I am trying to not spend more than £30, as I’m quite poor and would like to spend my other money at Hyper Japan, as well as other places in London.
I’ve scouted the internet for as much information as I can get about all of the range as although I want to go and discover products, I want to at least go in with some incline of what I want.
So here are ten products I really have my eye on, I know I won’t be buying all of them due to money, but I would like at least half of them. The ones that are in bold are the ones I REALLY want.
- Big Bang Bubble Bar.
This doesn’t just look pretty (and remind me of something from the Christmas range) but it also sounds really delicious and up my street! It’s supposedly a zesty bubble bar which contains grapefruit, lemon, and tangerine. One blog online stated that it smells of sweet lemons, like sweeties which sounds delicious. The perfect bath product to use when you need a pick you up! If these DO smell like that, then I can see me picking up two of these.
- Lava Lamp Bath Bomb.
This one has always attracted my attention since pictures of it first started to emerge onto the internet. I’ve always had a fascination with Lava Lamp’s since I was a kid, so I was intrigued too as it why it was called this. Thank God for YouTube! When this is placed into the bath, the purple bath oil parts of the bath bomb react alongside the orange of the bath bomb and create the effect of a lava lamp. Cool huh? BUT onto the scent! I’ve heard that this one is orange, orange, orange! I love the scent of oranges, they’re just so refreshing and wake you up, which would be perfect for summer mornings and evenings. I’m going to see how I feel about this when I get to giving it a sniff.
- Supertramp Bubble Bar.
I LOVED Tramp Shower Gel so when they discontinued it, I was absolutely gutted. I had only recently gotten into it and then Lush took it away, so I was pretty sad. What makes matters worse is that Lush do bring this out once in a while through the Kitchen, but they sell it at a jokey price. A price I’m NOT willing to pay. However, now they have brought out a bubble bar in the same scent… At a reasonable price… I can deal with that. If it still smells the same as the shower gel did back in the day then I’ll definitely pick up one, MAYBE two of these. However if it doesn’t and disappoints… No buying from me.
- Lime Pastille Bath Oil.
As the name suggests, this is going to smell of yummy lime pastilles! Well I hope so anyway. The bath oils are a new addition to the Lush family, although I think they’re out to replace the bath melts… Which I kinda hope not. I have a few reasons for this. 1. I think for the size £2.00 is a lot for ONE of these bath oils. 2. I’ve heard that they aren’t as good as they’re sounding. Either way, I will give these the benefit of the doubt and MAYBE give one or two a go. I love the smell of lime, and lime pastilles were always my favourite as a kid, so I can’t resist the temptation of giving this a sniff. Even if I do like it, I’ll only be buying one as like I said, £2.00 is a lot for what you get!
- Cherry Blossom Reusable Bubble Bar.
This is definitely something at the top of my Lush wish list! I didn’t think much of it when I first heard about it, but when I heard elsewhere that this smells just like Happy Blooming bath melt and shower jelly, I knew I had to have it! Another product from Lush that I adored and then as soon as I finished one and went to buy another, discontinued. I swear Lush doesn’t like the products that I LOVE. So if this is accurate and it smells the same, I can see me buying more than one for sure.
- Razzle Dazzle Bath Oil.
Out of the three bath oils I’m talking about on this blog post, I like the sound of this one the most. Described as being like raspberry ripple with lime, it sounds so delicious that I may end up eating it! If this one smells really good I could maybe see myself picking up two… But once again due to the price and how these aren’t meant to be that great, I may JUST get one to give myself a little taste.
- Key Lime Pie Lip Balm.
I don’t need anymore lip balms… BUT I may need this one… I’ve already mentioned how I love lime, and I especially love key lime pie. Damn yummy stuff. I’ve used one of the Lush lip balms before and it was really good. I would use this around the house, and if I pick it up whilst I’m away in London, I’ll probably use it whilst around London too. I would like this, but I will have to see how I feel about it. I have my eye on the Passionfruit Lip Balm too, but I’ll need to see which is better.
- Pink Flamingo Reusable Bubble Bar.
This just looks so cute, doesn’t it? I think that’s one thing everyone is loving about it right now too. It supposedly smells similar to The Comforter too, and on a sweeter side, which is perfect for me. I won’t want to use this due to how nice it looks though! I would bold this… But I don’t wanna pick up TOO much… If I do pick one up though, I’d only buy one.
- Orange Blossom Bath Oil.
Apparently this one is quite a strong bath oil, which sounds yummy! Anything blossom related I usually like, and once again with the orange scents, I’m swaying toward it. I doubt I’ll pick this up though, due to the same reasons as the other two bath oils. I’m not as keen on this one as the other two… So I probably won’t even pick this up.
- Milky Bar Bubble Bar.
This is one of the products that I’ve been rather excited about. It looks so awesome in the shape of a bottle, but it also sounds delicious too! I think it shares the same scent as the soap with the same name, which is like warm milk and Milky Bar’s. Something I really like due to how comforting they smell. If these are as good as they sound, I can see me buying two.
So that is my wish list on the way to being poor! I might not even buy as much as I probably said I would… Lush lasts me ages and to be honest if I really like stuff enough, I’ll probably end up taking a day trip down to London with one of my friends (hi Sophi!) to pick up a few more bits and pieces.
Have you been to the Oxford Street store yet? If so what did you pick up? If you haven’t been yet what are you eying up? Let me know your answers in the comments!
Until next time all, take care and I’ll be posting before I leave for London.
