Mini Lush Haul + Samples!

I went to Lush (among other places) with some friends recently and I had two things I had in mind to buy: Let the Good Times Roll and a solid shampoo (not sure which). I went in, grabbed Let the Good Times Roll, talked to nice sales lady about conditioners, got a sample of Retread, grabbed Seanik, and another sales person gave me a sample of Ocean Salt (upon request).

I purchased the Let the Good Times Roll 3.5 oz tub for $12.95. Because I only bought this recently, I will make a proper review on how this facial cleanser works out. I have tried it twice and lemme tell ya, it smells HEAVENLY. Even if it doesn't work (it's still too early to tell), I will continue using it because it makes my hair smell like Garrett Popcorn!

Let the Good Times Roll
With maize flour, polenta and a popcorn topping, the ingredients listing makes this fresh facial cleanser look more like a festive snack! We combine these ingredients to give you a very soft scrub, leaving your skin bright, clean and smooth. It is gentle enough to use on your entire body, and has a dash of cinnamon powder to warm up winter skin- from the Lush website.

The next thing I purchased was Seanik, a solid shampoo. Now, not many are familiar on solid shampoos and neither was I. After reading several reviews on Lush solid shampoos and watching countless of videos, I knew I had to buy one. It was $11.95. Now, it may sound expensive (it's around the same size as the picture below) but it is supposed to last you from somewhere to three months to an entire year depending on your hair length, how often you use it, and how well your store it. I have yet to use it, but I will review it once I believe I've gotten a good idea of how the product holds up to my regular shampoo (Aussie Moist).
The thing that drew me to it was that it smelled just like Rub Rub Rub! I love that scrub (which I bought for my mom for her birthday) because it smells so fresh, ocean-y, and slightly sweet!

Soften tangled locks and add oceans of shine with this mineral-rich, sea salt volumizing shampoo. Like a trip to a blue lagoon, Seanik is made with the best ingredients from the sea; softening Irish moss seaweed, and Japanese nori seaweed to make your hair soft as silk from root to tips, and sea salt to give body and volume to hair that’s fallen flat. One seriously sexy shampoo, we added lemon oil for extra shine, and the exotic far eastern fragrance of sensual mimosa and jasmine oils to bathe you in the heady scent of tropical flora all day long- taken from the Lush website.

Now to the samples... last time I went to Lush I got a sample of Angels on Bare Skin. This time around I got a sample of Retread (a conditioner) and Ocean Salt (a face and body salt scrub). If you've never been to Lush, all you have to do is ask for a sample of something you've been wanting to try.

Retread is a thick conditioner for dry, frizzy, and damaged hair. At the store I put some on my hand and it was very thick- thicker than any conditioner I've tried. The price made me take a few steps back. $29.95 for something that won't last me very long (I'm a conditioner addict)? I'm not very sure I wanted it... so I asked for a sample. I will review it once I've used the small sample. BTW- it smells gross. It reminds me of a certain Mexican candy (can't think of the name) gone HORRIBLY wrong. Ick!

Retread is our super-smoothing conditioning cream that gives sad hair its shine and bounce back. Use it when your hair is feeling absolutely wrecked. Our richest conditioner makes your hair look better, but more importantly, it feeds your hair the nutrients it needs. We use a blend of fresh natural ingredients starting with our seaweed and lanolin base, with added soya milk for extra protein. Then we blend in olive, jojoba and avocado oils to give a truly deep condition. Together all these ingredients add up to a nutritious heavy weight conditioner. Put a plentiful helping on your hair and let it go about its work- taken from the Lush website.

Next I got a sample of Ocean Salt. It is a sea salt scrub for your face and body and is Lush's best selling product. It's pretty expensive, so I didn't want to purchase it before I tried it. It smells great!

Ocean Salt
Back in 2005, our inventors had come up with a number of fantastic cleansers but there was one category they had yet to conquer: The scrub! A sea salt scrub! With that, they whipped up (our now enormously popular) Ocean Salt. Washing with Ocean Salt is like taking your face on a trip to the seaside for an invigorating splash in the water. We mix in fresh avocado and coconut to hydrate thirsty skin, while the antibacterial effects of lime and vodka is ideal for blocked pores, blackheads or blemishes. The minerals in sea salt soften as it scrubs away dirt and blockages- taken from the Lush Website.

Well, that's all! I'll make reviews when I feel like I've used these products enough! I also bought other things which aren't Beauty related. I think I'll make a post later on today of it (none of the products are for me, they are Christmas presents).
