Hi lovelies! About a week ago I attended a group inter­view for a casual posi­tion at Lush over the Christ­mas period. Can I just say: As well as hav­ing first-rate prod­ucts, the staff are absolutely delight­ful and the whole atmos­phere of their work­ing envi­ron­ment is fun, play­ful and really inti­mate and customer-focused. Inter­view aside, at the end of the night each of the appli­cants includ­ing me were gifted with a lit­tle goodie-bag of sam­ples and a Lush cat­a­logue (so thought­ful!). Let’s have a look at what I received…
First Up: The Char­ity Pot Body Cream! I was super excited to get this one because I’ve been mean­ing to pur­chase a full-sized pot for ages and my last sam­ple pot has noth­ing left but a delicious-smelling residue on the sides. I am absolutely in love with Char­ity Pot, it’s like a relax­ing hol­i­day on my skin (mm, hol­i­days). I’m gonna say it’s rem­i­nis­cent of a sun­screen smell — which is a lot bet­ter than it sounds and really lends to that hol­i­day feel­ing! You can use this any­where on your skin or hands like a lotion and it leaves your skin feel­ing soft as feath­ers and smelling amaz­ing. Can’t wait to get my hands on a full-sized jar, it’s $32.50 for 240g (buy it here) and it’ll last for ages.

Next, Grass Shower Gel. I was a lit­tle skep­ti­cal of the smell at first because it seemed a bit strong in the pot but it’s amaz­ing once it’s on your body! I loaded up my loofah with this and found that it really wasn’t nec­es­sary as it lath­ers up really nicely and a lit­tle goes a long way. It’s so refresh­ing and smells just like a fresh lawn! It gave me a good scrub­bing with­out dry­ing my skin out and I’m seri­ously con­sid­er­ing blow­ing more of my money on a full sized bot­tle, which, by the way is only $9.95 for 100g and is avail­able here.

Now I haven’t actu­ally had the chance to try the Cyn­thia Sylvia Stout Sham­poo. I’ve heard some pretty excel­lent things about the solid sham­poos at Lush and I’m sure the liq­uids are equally amaz­ing, but I’m a lit­tle wor­ried about mix­ing this scent with other prod­ucts. The smell is fab­u­lous, like scotch and some­thing. It’s not really like any­thing else I can think of, it’s really unique and deli­cious. My prob­lem is that I con­di­tion my hair every time and I wouldn’t want to wreck this great smell by slop­ping my non-handmade, non-natural, non-amazing crap on top of it. Cyn­thia Sylvia Stout is $32.95 for a 500g bot­tle and you can get it here.

Lastly we have the Figs and Leaves Soap, and I love it. The smell is great and like every other soap at Lush it cleans and mois­turises and really looks after your skin — it’s even got lit­tle seed bits for exfo­li­a­tion. I’m noto­ri­ously bad at describ­ing smells I’m not famil­iar with but the Lush web­site describes it as ‘flo­ral, with an under­tone of east­ern exoti­cism.’ It’s $6.95 for 100g and well worth it in my opin­ion. Get it here!

I rarely have a bad word to say about Lush prod­ucts but I still want you to keep in mind that I’m com­pletely unbi­ased and all my glow­ing reviews are hard-earned. So have you tried any of these Lush prod­ucts? Would you rec­om­mend I buy full sizes? Let me know!
