Autumn Lush Haul

This blog post is coming earlier in my plan than expected, again mostly due to awful November lighting meaning I couldn't get decent photos that reflected the colour of my make-up looks - here's hoping for a brighter next weekend! 

I was determined, after a month of bookish posts, that this week would be something different - so here's my Autumn Lush Haul.

I visited London at the start of October, and I had to visit Lush Oxford Street! I picked up a couple of things that are exclusive to the Oxford Street store - although I believe the entire range is available online.

1) T for Toes. I hate not wearing socks with shoes, or wearing just nylon tights and shoes, so I picked up some of this foot powder to keep my feet feeling fresh all day. I think it works relatively well, but it is a bit messy!

2) Light Pink Colour Supplement. I was surprised this colour was the one that best matched my skin tone as I have fairly yellow/orange undertones. This colour complements my skin tone really well, though, and it's a nice, light, alternative to foundation. You're supposed to mix this with moisturiser before applying it, but I actually prefer wearing it overtop of my moisturiser (not allowing the moisturiser to skin in too much before applying the product). The effectiveness of this product really relies on the moisturiser you use, but I've found it settles in to my skin perfectly.

3) Flowering Tea Bath Dunk. I wanted to get this tea-bag bubble bar ever since I heard about it. I haven't tried it out yet, but it had a very strong floral smell (there are dried flowers inside the 'bag') and a silver lustre on the outside. I'm hoping to get three or so uses out of it - I just need to make time for the bath!

I also picked up a couple of other things throughout the month.

4) Rehab Shampoo. I sent my parents into Lush to pick up the Jumping Juniper shampoo bar (it's my favourite) but they were all out. A very lovely lady who works there gave them three sample pots of Rehab because it has similar properties to Jumping Juniper. I had always been skeptical of buying Lush liquid shampoo because spending over £10 on 250ml of product seems a little bonkers to me. However, after these three tiny (and I mean tiny) tubs lasted me three weeks, with excellent results, I thought I'd take the plunge. The smell of this product is beautiful - rosemary and mint are two of my favourite scents and they are mixed beautifully in this product. I LOVE IT.

5) Coal Face. This is a facial soap. I've been wanting to try it for a while now, and finally picked it up this month. I'm still undecided about it at the moment, and I definitely prefer my coconut oil cleanser for the evenings (I've actually changed brands and am currently adoring the Vita Coco oil). However I'm going to start subbing this in for my morning shower, so I'll keep you posted!

6) T'eo Deodorant. I'm actually going to do a cruelty free comparisons soon with this deodorant featured, so I won't go into too much detail. I will say that I love the smell of this product, it keeps me smelling clean all day, although it is a bit scratchy on freshly shaved pits.

Have you tried any of these products? What do you think of them?

    The meaning of this is that you literally burn fat by consuming Coconut Fats (also coconut milk, coconut cream and coconut oil).
