Boy howdy am I behind on my Lush hauls. I showed you my in-store purchase a little while ago, but I also made two online purchases. This one is the first.
I pretty much had to pick up two small bottles of Lord of Misrule. Still loving this scent. The 3.3 ounce bottles are the smallest size (well, in general) and run $9.95 each, these were BOGO. Smells just as good as always.
Golden Wonder held two items. An ultra tiny (2 ounce) shower gel in Bubbly and a Golden Wonder bath bomb.
I can't get over these "new" gift sized shower gels. Boo. Totally boo. And $15.95 for what basically amounts to a sample of a scent and one bath bomb seems like insanity. Cut the price in half and I feel like I am getting a tiny deal. At $7 or so, I am paying for the bath bomb at full price and getting a generous free sample of shower gel. Ok, enough ranting. Obviously I still bought it. The scent of Golden Wonder (Celebration and Bubbly too) reminds me of a fancy Tang. I don't mind the powdered orange scent too much. But I do love the results of the Golden Wonder bath bomb in the tub. It is a shimmery aqua mermaid delight. And pretty much any shower gel I use as bubble bath, sometimes the occasional shampoo or body wash.
Sweet Christmas came with three items: Twilight shower gel, Shooting Star bar soap and Snow Fairy lotion for $27.95 each, but BOGO during Boxing Day.
Thank the heavens the Twilight was a regular small and not a "gift" size. But really. Twilight is the only reason I bought this box. I was hoping to nab some The Night Before Christmas boxes because it came with Sleepy lotion, which is Twilight scented, but they were out. I am not a huge fan of Snow Fairy but I knew I could give them to friends. The bar soap is ok. Really bright and citrusy. I have used one bar and gifted the other. I tend to find Lush bar soap drying. Except Yog Nog and a few others. Why is Lush no longer releasing Twilight as a stand alone shower gel?? They would sell so much of it. Boggles my noggin'.
If I had my druthers I would just buy the shower gels and cream and bath bombs I wanted separately. But sadly, everything goes so fast that I don't ever catch them and have to go the gift box route. But hey. It allows for sharing. And sharing is caring.
Do you enjoy the Lush gift boxes? Is it just me or are they way overpriced at full retail? And what is up with the gift sized shower gels now?? I have a feeling we will be seeing more of these tinier sizes in the gift boxes in the future. And if you are interested in the Bubbly shower gel there are still some for sale on the website as of last night.
