LUSH Rub Rub Rub Body Scrub~*

Hey Everyone,

A while ago I was lucky enough to attend a Bloggers United x LUSH 2nd birthday bash! While there we got to watch some face scrubs be made, and as always learn more about the fabulous company that is LUSH. At the end of the night we were lucky enough to pick one full size product. I decided on getting the biggest size of Rub Rub Rub because I had used it before and was missing it in my life.

Rub Rub Rub is a scrub that is advertised to be used both in and out of the shower, so I will talk about both uses separately.

Out of the shower: I found that I did not enjoy using Rub Rub Rub on dry skin, the product obviously does not last as long or go as far on dry skin. Getting the product to move around on my leg was harder then I thought it would be. Sometimes it would cling to drier patches. I felt as well that my skin didn’t feel as nice afterwards, that it had not scrubbed my skin as well as it could have.

In the shower: I LOVE using this in the shower, as it spreads a lot easier on my skin and because I am already wet, the product goes further, which is important considering how expensive LUSH products can get. I also enjoy the fact that Rub Rub Rub can be used by itself as a soap, as the product smells amazing and suds up as soap normally does.

Overall I really enjoying using this scrub as it is not super abrasive. That being said, some of my friends can’t use this because it is still too strong for them, so if you are thinking of trying this maybe still get the smaller size first. I don’t use this all that often, only when I am shaving my legs (which is maybe once a week/ when my partner visits). If you are not a fan of strong smells you might not enjoy this smell, as it does smell strongly of the sea, which is something that I don’t mind. The best thing for me is that I can use a small amount and it moves easily on my skin and I can get everywhere that I want to. Because the product is finer, I find it easier to scrub parts where I am more inclined to get in grown hairs.

My own biggest issue with this is the packaging, which is a jar, because even right now there is product in the seal and I find that it is hard to get out because I don’t want to get the inside of the jar wet.

Otherwise this is one of my favourites and I am so glad that I get to have this huge jar to work through!

What are some of your favourite body scrubs?

LUSH Soaps – A new experiment

Hey Everyone,

I want to start off first by saying this by no means was my own idea! I came across this, like all great ideas, while browsing the internet. But I loved it so much that I had to do it myself and I thought I would share the idea with you as well!

Personally, I know there I times where I feel like I am just blasting through my LUSH soaps, which honestly discourages me from purchasing them, as they can get expensive. The idea I came across was the cut the blocks into smaller pieces, which hopefully means I can get more uses out of the block. But also means I can change the scent regularly, which I think is a nice bonus. Whether the soaps do last longer or not I will let you know down the track, as I have currently listened these soaps in my Buying and Finishing Products 2017 spread, but I am going to mark down the date I cut these as I plan to use them right away!

Cutting up the blocks was a lot easier then I expected, but that could be because it was a warm day, and the red soap in particular, cut like butter (which was actually a little scary, considering I was using a butchers knife). I don’t have a specific knife in mind to recommend, but I would suggest using an older one that maybe doesn’t get as much love in the kitchen. I know its soap and you can just wash it off, but it still just seems weird to me to use the same knife that you would then cook with!

I cut up all my pieces in various shapes and sizes, some pieces were determined by how big the original piece was. Others are because I got mildly carried away and cut them small. I will be interested to see how long a piece lasts at this size. But I am excited as the idea of working through all these soaps.

If you are curious the soaps I cut up are:
Respect Your Elders
Figs & Leaves
Bohemian
(Don’t know the name of the last one, but it looked like a UK Post box)

I would love to see how you store your soaps! I am a mild collector and would love to see how you store yours!

LUSH Rundle Mall

Hey Everyone,

It’s been a week since the new store opened and I was given the chance to go in a night early and have a little look around. I want to start off this post by just saying how thankful I am to being invited to this event. This was my first offical PR event and I was lucky to go with my best friends. So thank you so much LUSH!

When we first walked into the store, we were greeted by some lovely ladies who gave us a gift card to spend and directed us to this lovely table. This was totally unexpected but appreciated! There were two drinks to pick from, and both were based on the LUSH products,  Shoot for the Starts and Bubbly. I chose the Bubbly drink, as I just enjoyed the look of it more, of course, it was delicious!

Here is a bit of an over view of the store, as you can see it is SOOOOO much bigger then the last one, which is so refreshing. One of my favourite features is the fact that there is a ramp as well as stairs to the second floor. I have friends who now can enjoy the store where they could not before because of its awkward size. Excellent touch LUSH and I am sure it’ll get a lot of use in the Christmas rush.

Once we had all made our way in, we were given the chance to wonder around the store and catch up with friends. Because my little group was first through the door, we moved straight to the back of the store to make sure that there was enough room for everyone to get in. My little group ended up at the hair care area and it was amazing. After a demo of the products (where my hair was often used because it was down, no complaints) I now know other products that I need in my life. One that I really want is Queen Bee because we put this in my hair and it felt amazing! Plus it has no packaging which is always good.

Next we moved onto one of my favourite parts of the night, well for me anyway. MAKING OUR OWN BATH BOMB. OMG, dream come true! We all got the chance to make our own Shoot For the Stars Bath bomb, and can I just say, they are a lot harder to make then I thought. Trying to get the stars to stay on the outside and looking pretty takes some practice. The ladies in charge of the station were so lovely and explained what the process was, there is a bath bomb at LUSH that takes 4 days to make because of its complexity! It was good to hear too that in the LUSH factory the staff make it a challenge to see how many someone can make in a day.

Once everyone had the chance to settle in and take some initial photos, we were officially greeted and welcomed to the new store! It is crazy to hear that little Adelaide now has the BIGGEST store in Australia, and the first store out of England to have a party area! Adelaide has been recognised as a state that supports LUSH and so it was amazing that we have been granted such a title. One thing I didn’t realise about LUSH was how they farmed their ingredients, growing up in a farming family I understand the importance of keeping the land healthy and happy. LUSH feels the same way, so they go out of their way to make sure the land they get their ingredients from is healthy, and that the towns and people are also looked after.

After this lovely speech, we were given free reign of the store and was allowed to shop to our hearts content! I went around talking to staff asking about products, and of course, talking about the size of the new store. I learnt that the staff size in Adelaide also tripled, so good news all around!

This is the party area I mentioned above, for the night it was taken over by smoothy making booth! You could jump on a bike, pedal away and BOOM you have a delicious drink that you mildly made yourself. There was even chocolate that you could sprinkle over the drink which made it even better (one staff member mentioned how she had been put in charge of cutting the chocolate).

These were the beautiful people I spent most of my night with, and it was so good to catch up with them! Going from left to right, I’ll link everyone in these photos!

I am so thankful that I can go to events with these beautiful ladies! They always make the night enjoyable and we always just end up taking funny photos and giving each other lists of things that we need in our life.

And one final thank you to Promote SA for being there for us Adelaide Bloggers! Without you we wouldn’t be having these amazing events!

At the end of the night, these were the items I picked up, I also have a knot scarf, but it is not in this photo. I have always wanted one of the scarfs, so why not! I plan to do reviews on all these products, but if there is something you want to see first, please leave me a comment below. Please note all of these products were bought with the gift card that I was provided with at the start of the night.
