I think we all know that bloggers rave about Lush. Rosie, Hannah, Beth... I'm looking at you guys! Honestly, I cannot go on a blog anymore without a "Ohmigod, I love the Lush shower gel!" or an "You have to go try this bath bomb from Lush!". I considered it totally cool to be the only blogger ever who hasn't really heard of Lush. But as of yesterday, I am never looking back!
So here's the story: My family was in the city for Chinese new year (that reminds me, happy Chinese new year everyone!) and we were wandering down Swanston st. I remembered a while back that Hannah had told me that there was a Lush on that particular street, and since I was pretty bored, I decided to go check it out. The store itself was amazing; it smelt delicious and the set up design was so pretty and quirky. I loved the look of the honey bee bath bomb and the comforter shower gel, (and about everything else in the store) but I had just spent all my cash on an op shop spending spree. I was heartbroken! Unfortunately, my mum wasn't willing to buy me anything either. But she vaguely mentioned that my aunt had given her a box of Lush bath bombs last year, and they were still in the house somewhere.
Finally, after hours worth of searching, I found the box that she was talking about. There were three bath bombs in there - the snowball, which at some point I will get to reviewing, another one that smelt beautifully of jasmine and another that was very citrus y. I decided to try the snowball, as I thought it had the best smell.
And I loved it! As soon as I started crumbling the bath bomb underneath the tap, the room filled with a delicious smell of cinnamon and some sort of dark, fruity smell; it smelt a bit like plum pudding to me. The water turned the most beautiful shade of mint, with little yellow flowers as well. I probably put too much in, but anyway. The bath was so moisturizing; it had kind of become syrupy like which was wonderful for my exhausted body. High school is a serious drain on my energy!
So thanks, guys, for raving about Lush! I am in love with the place, and cannot wait to go back there. See you soon!
