My First Mini Lush Haul | Herbalism Cleanser + Bath Bombs

Lush bath bombs (Twilight, Intergalatic, Sex Bomb, and Avobath) and Herbalism Cleanser

After hearing so many great things about Lush and their fresh handmade beauty products, I finally caved and made my first order!

I decided to start small and pick up just a few products.  Number one on my list of things to try were their bath bombs…

Lush Bath Bombs

After watching countless Youtube demos of these fizzy little guys spinning and creating beautifully colored patterns in peoples’ tubs (cause that’s the kind of thing I do before I go to bed…), I finally picked out a few that not only looked pretty, but also contained fragrances that I love (such as vetivert, lemongrass).  Here’s what I picked up:

  • Intergalatic – Peppermint, grapefruit, vetivert, and cedarwood (earthy, grounding scent)
  • Twilight –  Benzoin resinoid, tonka absolute, ylang ylang and lavender (very sweet, comforting scent)
  • Sex Bomb – Jasmine, ylang ylang and clary sage (very floral, feminine scent)
  • Avobath – Lemongrass and bergamot (citrus-y, energizing scent)

Right off the bat, I was really impressed by the scent throw in these Lush bath bombs!  They must use highly concentrated essential oils when they make these babies.  After the bath bombs arrived in the mail, I had them sitting in my home office, and not even 24 hours later, the room was filled with a wonderful mix of their fragrances.

As for the bathing experience – also amazing!  Here’s a little peek at the Twilight bath bomb.  It’s the first one I tried out (I couldn’t resist its sweet, warm inviting scent!).  The water’s color, after it had finished spewing out swirls of pinks and blues, settled to a beautiful night-sky purple tone with fine glitter that mimicked sparkling starlight.

Second to the bath bombs, I was also on the market for an exfoliating skin/body care product, and had narrowed down my picks to Ocean Salt and Herbalism.  I’d read so many good things about Ocean Salt on other blogs, but ultimately, I thought it might be just a bit too rough on my skin.  It’s just a personal preference, but I like to use even, finer particles when it comes to exfoliating. I’ve also read that rougher, uneven grainy particles like sea salt could irritate sensitive skin, and even tear at your pores. Herbalism however, looked like a much gentler yet effective scrub/cleanser, so I ultimately decided to go with that one.

Herbalism Face & Body Cleanser



Herbalism is an interesting little cleanser.  It has a unique part earthly, part herb-y scent that’s not too overpowering.  I actually quite enjoy it!


The consistency of this cleanser is probably the strangest I’ve ever tried.  Straight out of the container, it comes out as a slightly moist solid.  Once you mix it in your palm with water to create a paste, about half (or maybe a little less) of the scrub turns into a liquid or ‘cleansing milk’ as Lush calls it, while the remaining solid pieces make up the exfoliating part (consisting of rice bran and ground almonds).  It leaves my skin so soft and smooth!

Overall, I’m very pleased with my first order at Lush, and already have a shopping cart stocked with products I’d like to try next!

Have you tried Lush products?  What are your favorites?

    • Thank you! 🙂 I hope you get to try Intergalactic! It smells sooo good and looks amazing in the tub!!

  • Lush is my life. I’m addicted to their shampoo bars–I have frizzy, dry, curly hair and they make it soft for the first time in my life!

    • I keep hearing good things about their shampoo bars – maybe I’ll have to try them out (I have rather dry and frizzy hair as well)…Any recommendations? 🙂

      • LOVE their lemon one. Its clarifying, so it’s a good one to start with to clean all of the sulfates and other chemicals as well as product build-up out of your hair 🙂
        Definitely try it! They’re small but last forever.

        • Thanks, I’ll definitely check that one out!
