Haul: Lush Korea December 2015
This was a small haul, but I'm super excited for it because everything I bought is a new to me product from Lush.
Oooh, what a pretty bag! Oh, you wanted to see the contents?
A smaller bag! YAAAY! I just wanted to show how the products were packaged by the employees after I bought it. Let's get on to the real goods! I'll include the Lush website's product description followed by my own little blurb about it and the price I paid in Won/approximate USD value. The value of Won varies heavily from day to day so sometimes I can get a little more out of my money than others.
This soft and pink bubble bar heavily reminds me of Snow Fairy. It could be the same scent. I wouldn't know, because I don't have any Snow Fairy from Lush on hand to compare. I'm hoping to be able to split this into three or four pieces, or three or four uses. I do know that I loved the scent enough to pick up another one when we went back to Lush a few days ago!
This is a giant bubble bar, thus its hefty price tag. I always strayed away from these giant bars because I wasn't sure if they were worth it. Michael pushed me to try more new to me products while we were in the store, so I figured why not? Now that I have a little experience with these bars and my own tub I can say a little goes a long way in terms of bubbles. Score!
Holy moly this was a rather expensive bar. I would've put this back if Michael hadn't insisted on it. It's about the same size as the Comforter, but instead of being a nice and dreamy sleepytime mix this really pumps you up for the day. I used this alongside the Yuzu and Cocoa bubbleroon for a bath and it really... I dunno... brightened my day? Woke me up? I used about 1/8th of this bar in my tub and it created bubbles. Bubble mountain covered in bubbles.
This was another expensive product, only it did not come in the massive size Comforter and Brightside came in. This is actually the smallest bath product I've gotten from lush, and it's one of the most expensive. I went ahead and gave it a try, and I did feel a little more silky after my bath, but I'm not sure it's worth the money. That didn't stop me from picking up a different scent a few days ago... <_<
I used this for a bright and cheery bathtime experience and it was a very vibrant scent. Perfect for those midday baths when you still want/need to get some work done afterwards. I used about 1/6 of the bath bomb for that, and I would probably use a little more next time for a heavier effect.
I recognized this as soon as I saw it. I've seen too many YouTube Lush hauls not to know what this is. The product was a bit older and according to its sticker past it's Fresh By date (which is different from its expiration date, which apparently these have none) but I wanted it nonetheless. I've never tried Lush's other holiday goodies besides I've only ever bought from Lush at their Boxing Day sale. I'll be sure to share how this one performs once I try it.
This is a very sparkly bubble bar. The scent ranges between something that might be pumpkin and baby powder. Hmmmm.
This is a cute little bubble bar that has a faint smell of strawberries and... again, Candy Mountain/Snow Fairy. Maybe I just have that scent heavily on my mind or maybe Lush is recycling scents (not that they don't do that anyways) but I want my candy mountain bubble bar, darnit!
This bubble bar definitely has some more softness to it than other bars, but I don't use enough per use to have a lasting effect on my skin beyond what I'm already used to. This was still a fun bar to use!
Thus concludes my small first Korean Lush haul. I think my favorite of the bunch here is Creamy Candy, and I'm wishing I had picked up more bath bombs to use. My bubble bar to bath bomb ratio is completely off.
Which of these products do you think you would like the most?
