Lush: Newbie Addition 

I discoverd lush when I moved back to the city three years ago (I was living under a rock!) my first ever lush purchases were Twilight,Space Girl Bath Bombs (discontinued), Cotton Candy Lip Scrub and Mask of Magnaminty (one of my favorites). As a lush newbie I would run a bath and submerg one whole bath bomb each use, I mean after all isn’t that how it works? Subconsciously I always felt like I wasted a whole bath bomb worth to fill my apartments tiny bathtub. It wasn’t until my fiancé (he’s more financially conscious then I am) mentioned “you use those bath bombs so frequently, why don’t you break them into pieces and use them little at a time?” To which I thought “ugh typical man doesn’t know the true indulgence of a relaxing bath” But I decided to hear him out, he is a reasonable man, majority of the time. 😆  In this case I was stoked to run and tell him he was actually right, breaking apart the lush bath bombs not only lasted longer but it turns out just a few tiny pieces was all I needed to fill the tiny bath tub.  

Upon discovery of a lush bath bomb “hack” I went to Instagram and looked up every lush hashtag possible #lushaddicts#lush#lushbathbombs and within the thousand hashtags related to lush there was a hashtag titled “lushcocktail” and beyond my creativity I saw tons of images of lush fanatics making there own concoction of lush bath bombs,shower gels, lush bubble bars and everything you can think of! All of which were beautiful and colorful. As a lush newbie I wasn’t aware of the creative freedom to personalize your bath experience by pairing other lush products with one another. As a lush newbie I also learned that Self-Preservative face masks don’t need to be refrigerated, Oops! 

​What was your first or favorite Lush purchase?
