Shower Gels and Scrub
I have been showing a lot of love to my Lush shower gels this month. I have a lot of different ones from different brands, as I like to rotate them but these two were used a lot. Happy Hippy is a fresh grapefruit with a not very overpowering scent, so could be used not only in the mornings. Glögg is a spicy and warm fragrance which always cheers me up!
As for the scrub – Clarins Smoothing Body Scrub was my choice recently, as it is a gentle exfoliator which makes the skin smooth and allows creams and oils to absorb better.
My skin is extremely dry and flaky at the moment so I am using a lot of different oils on it. I love taking a long and relaxing bath with some oils, for example with this Lavera Organic Wild Rose Bath Oil. It isRead More
I really love zesty citrus body products, bath and shower gels, body creams etc.
This is why I had to get Happy Hippy Shower Gel by Lush. They describe it as a ”fresh grapefruit breakfast in a bottle.”
First of all I love the yellow colour of this gel, it makes me think of sunshine and lemons! Although, it is not actually lemons (in it), it’s grapefruits. And to be more precise pink grapefruit juice, grapefruit water and grapefruit essential oil. Sounds cool, right?
And it actually is a great pair for my Body Shop Grapefruit body butter. Not to mention that I love grapefruit juice for breakfast!

For those of you who don’t know, Lush launched their makeup range not a long time ago.
I was near Lush the other day so decided to check out their lipsticks as I’ve heard very good things about them. And, wow, they did not disappoint!
I don’t own one yet but I did swatch almost all the shades on my hand in store and did put one on my lips (Lush provide disposable applicators) which I had on for the whole evening.
These are very pigmented, long-lasting and non-drying. I also love the fact that they can be used as blushers, too.
I left Lush with Charm on my lips which survived pizza and drinks with friends. I actually had to get back and get one for my friend as I knew she’d like it. The one you can see on the photo is hers now, it is Charm.
Here are just some random swatches of Lush’s makeup. I would definitelyRead More

I haven’t been to LUSH in some time so I’ve decided to go and get something as a part of my Birthday treat. I’ve picked up one Christmas set with a big discount (obviously) and Rub Rub Rub.
I haven’t tried the Northern Lights soap yet but I’ve used other products several times already and want to share my opinion.
Rub Rub Rub
I personally really loved this scrub as it is such a multi-purpose product. You can use it as a scrub on a dry body, mixed with water as a scrubbing shower gel for a more gentle effect or as… shampoo!
Although it does say that you can use it on your hair I don’t think I would ever do it unless a recommendation from a friend. And, wow, I was actually really impressed with the results. Made the boyfriend use it, too, and he loved the effect as well.
Actually when I’ve asked a lady at LUSH for her favourite product – she pointed at Rub Rub Rub. And it is lovely. Leaves the body soft and clean when used as a scrub and leaves the hair shiny and light when used as a shampoo.
The only minus is that it won’t last you for a very long time. I am through half of the bottle in less than a month. I will definitely re-purchase this product at some point.
