Thoughts you have in LUSH

May 28, 2016

I can’t see it but I can smell it. Nose, guide me to heaven.

Okay. I have to stay focused this time. I’m just going to get the essentials: a cleanser, a scrub…and maybe like one bath bomb. But that’s it.

OOOOH they have the new Father’s Day collection out. I mean, it’s limited edition so I should deffo go and look. For Dad, obviously.

It’s like a pyramid but made out of bath bombs. Who needs Egypt when you can get to Kingston on the 72 bus?

For £3.95 this better be Instagrammable. #I’mPoorButMyBathIsPretty. 

Oh god. bath bomb powder up my nose. When I say ‘Lush is my drug’ this is not what I mean. 

Right, so 5 bath bombs. Okay. Okay. It’s all good. Let’s find the cleanser, pay and run.

Dammit. I left my five pots at home. No free facemask for me then. 

“Excuse me. Can I have a sample of…erm…every facemask?”

Why is she suddenly talking about in-shower body moisturisers? How did this happen?
Wow. I want all of the in-shower moisturisers. Gimme. 

Never have I heard the term “scent family” before.

I’m still mourning Snow Fairy, though. So, yes, I will buy everything in that scent family.

Everything I learnt in maths has been leading up to trying to figure out how much I save by getting the industrial sized bottles of shower gel.

Do I want to smell like a fairy who lives in a candyfloss castle (The Comforter) or a sexy Italian man (The Olive Branch)? Both. Definitely both. 

I mean, I would buy the soaps but that would involve telling someone how much I want to have cut from that gigantic block. I have no concept of grams so…nope.

LUSH: The masters of turning liquid to solid. SOLID TOOTHPASTE FOR GOD’S SAKE.

This is getting out of hand. How did I end up with something called ‘Oral Pleasure’ in my basket?

Let’s just pay. I’m guessing it should come to about £30 or something.

She’s very smiley.

£76.83? Pardon?

Well, I guess I won’t eat for a week. Eh, who needs food when you have bubble bars?

Just look straight ahead as you leave the shop, Bethany. Don’t even think about it.

Shit. I forgot the cleanser.

    love this post, I literally went into Lush one time and bought a medium sized shower gel thinking oh it'll be like £9 at most, it'll be a treat. It was £16 and I was too embarrassed to say I didn't want it anymore so now have been using the smallest amounts of it! 😛 xxlots of love, Jane http://www.marbleandrose.blogspot.co.uk

    Haha I have definitely been there. Except most of my experience in Lush is just thinking "please don't come up to me please don't come up to me". They're so full on and I know all the products I like already haha.
