In the last six months I have become obsessed with Lush. After repeatedly walking past the store in our local mall and being intimidated by the interesting layout, I bravely ventured in. I was confronted by farmer's market-style displays that featured fresh face masks and piles of bath bombs. After several trips to three different Lush stores (including one in Paris), I have finally learned how to navigate the stacks and find things I like.
One of the bath bombs I have had my eye on for a while is the Honey Bee. The colors and scent seemed so subtle that I imagined it would be a soothing touch of honey in the tub. It was a bit of a let down, though, as the scent was barely there and it left a weird brown residue in my bathtub.
I couldn't find this next item on the website so I don't think they're selling it in this form anymore, but there is a similar gift set here. I received this as a present on my birthday and it consists of a shower jelly and a soap wrapped in a patterned fabric handkerchief.
The Sweetie Pie Shower Jelly smelled amazing when I first opened it, a light fruity scent, but the consistency had me perplexed. I wasn't quite sure how to use this product as it is one solid piece with a thick gel feel. After consulting Google, I discovered the best method was to scoop a piece out of the tub with my fingers and rub it into a loofa until it produced suds. I enjoyed this and look forward to trying it again soon now that I know how. Yes, there were several failed attempts to use it without the loofa at first, which resulted in awkward fumbling and general wastefulness.
