A Lush Haul.


Nothing beats a Lush stock-up at this time of year, now we have a warmer flat with a better bath I’m all about soaking in the tub for hours on end. Sometimes I have to talk myself out of having another bath (normal behaviour there, Kate) but Lush goodies and dark, cold evenings totally make it acceptable.

I’m all about beachy hair, so I picked up a couple of hair products to keep my locks all tousled and effortless – the first being Lush BIG Shampoo (£12.25), my second tub of the stuff because I’m pretty much obsessed. I know this is the reason I have to dye my hair constantly, but I just love it – it makes my hair so bouncy and full of life, with a touch of texture, a bit of tousled wave and a lovely glossy finish. It takes a bit of getting used to at first, because you are rubbing handfuls of salt in to your hair but that passes and regular shampoo starts to feel odd. Yup.
I also got myself the Lush Sea Spray Hair Mist (£9.95), a beachy salt spray for achieving Blake Lively hair. I’m yet to try this but I’ll keep you in the loop, because who DOESN’T want beach hair in the midsts of winter?


I also got my standard block of The Comforter Bubble Bar (£4.75), I can make one of these bars last four months which is actually something I’d put on my CV if I had a need for one. I just finished my last bar and baths haven’t been the same without it – this smells delicious, makes the bath pink and creates an unnecessary amount of bubbles. Divine!
Another bath time thing I gone done did pick up is the Lush Snow Angel Bath Melt (£3.75), a purchase I’ll probably regret when I have glitter in places where glitter doesn’t belong. Too cute to pass up though.

Finally, I skipped my usual Olive Branch shower gel and went for the Rose Jam (£4.75) number; I adore the Rose Jam scent so this was a must! Ohhh boy, just one huff and I was hooked. I’ll try really hard not to eat this but I can’t promise anything, folks. I’m not even a big rose fan, but this is like the Beyonce of roses fragrances. Seriously.

Are you planning a Lush haul?

    I love a good Lush haul! I’ve just stocked up on some of my favourites again and got a few extra treats too. I like the sound of the salt shampoo and sea spray – that could be next on my list for things to try 🙂 x

  • Francesca Picano

    Omg, once I save up enough money I’m going to buy some Christmas products nearer to the festive season, and have a massive haul then! 🙂

  • I wasn’t planning a lush haul, but I am now! The comforter is my go to bar of choice. I need me some snow fairy in my life too.

  • Shelley

    I love the smell of Sea Spray! x

    Oh I love Lush hauls! Is Rose Jam a seasonal one? I remember it last year and it was amazing! xxx

  • Your photos are always so good! I need to invest in something which will give me a white background haha. The big shampoo, does it dry your hair out? I love the tousled beachy look but it means I have to wash my hair every day because it is completely unstylable! xx

  • Valerie

    Nice haul! I also have the comforter bubble bar! It smells so good <3

    Sea Spray is great – not too sticky, it doesn’t make your hair feel too dirty like some other salt sprays and it totally works for that beachy look. Plus, whenever you spray it, it feels like being on holiday!

  • Love the sound of these – I need to visit Lush soon!

    I love viewing Lush Hauls…though I try to try something new every time I’m in there, I still like to see what other people are getting! I don’t do major hauling at Lush, but I do like to treat myself to something new: Body Butters forever!

  • Great selection of Lush goodies – I love the sound of the bubble bar 🙂 Fantastic photos as usual – serious photo envy going on in my corner 🙂 xx

  • I never think to go into Lush, I must make it my mission – I quite like the sounds of that shampoo and shower gel!

  • Lys

    Lush is one of my favourite stores to shop! I love The Comforter, I can’t wait to try some of their Halloween and Christmas products too

  • Vivian Yuen

    The bubble bar is my favourite!!!

    LIVE . IN .LOVE ✞


  • Oh I have The Brightside bubble bar and I was thinking about getting the one you have too 😉 they have such a great scent! And my skin feels so soft after a bath 🙂
    I have been loving your vlogs, you’re a natural xx

  • I looove the Big shampoo! It gives my hair so much volume, but sadly I can’t use it too often as it totally dries out my hair. I guess that’s the price you pay for awesome volume!

  • I love Lush, and I can’t wait to get my hands on some of the Christmas products! I’ve always wanted to try their hair products, too, so maybe the Big shampoo will be my next Lush purchase.

  • Some of these products sound amazing! Thanks Kate! Lilly xx http://alittlelilly.blogspot.nl/

  • Oh I can only imagine what your room must smell like. I’m surprised I almost never see you talking about their skincare? Lovely picks though, you can never go wrong with the christmas collection!

  • Katie Males

    I really want to try the Rose Jam shower gel. Sounds amazing! Haven’t been to lush in ages!! x


  • Ah, I love the Sea Spray! A great pick 🙂

  • Emily Knott

    I have been pondering on the lush website. The temptation is too much!


  • Nemat

    I love the look and smell for Lush products but I had such a bad reaction to a face scrub years ago and I’ve been scared to try their products again. The bubble bar looks lush (excuse the pun haha)


  • Im in love with the comforter!!! Quite fancy giving the rose jam a try though xx

  • Arielle Yeap

    Please do let me know how the sea spray goes, I’ve been wondering if I should get it for so long, but never took the leap. Reading reviews, a lot of curly haired girls say good things about it but i have straight hair that needs more volume, like you! <3

  • I just bought Yog Nog as we don’t have a great bath for bath bombs, and it smells like Christmas! Perfect hand and body soap, fab so sensitive hands like mine!

  • Aww Kate your photos are just so lovely! I’ve been wanting to try the Sea Spray. Let us know what you think of it 🙂

  • I’ve seen so many lush hauls recently. It’s absolutely killing me. I have to go and stock up! The Snow Angel looks edible!

  • Maisie

    I want to try the comforter but just haven’t got round to buy it. I have also wanted to try their hair care so will definitly next time I’m in there!


  • Sam

    I’ve never tried any of the Lush hair products but I really want to!
    I just bought a load of their Christmas range last week though and am currently in bath heaven! Still been loving my old favourites though like the comforter (I too can make mine last a good few months!)

  • i remember smelling that rose jam shower gel last year and falling in love with it but never ended up buying it, i might have to treat myself this year before it goes

    lots of sparkle

  • I just started on my second tub of BIG too! Love it!

  • Catrin

    I really need to try Big! If there was a lush near me I’d be a pauper!


  • Rose Jam is seriously my favorite thing in the world! I plan on stocking up once it hits stateside! xx

  • Jade

    I wish I had picked the Rose Jam up when I was in there last. Might have to go back!


  • The photos are so beautiful! The comforter is my all-time favourite LUSH product!! <3


  • Margery Ho

    I love that bubble bar! x


  • I am planning on buying as much of the new Lush stuff as possible, it’s all so festive! That bubble bar smells heavenly too. 🙂 Love your blog and Youtube channel! x


  • beautybyalicee

    These products look fab, I am yet to make a trip to my Lush but I’m super excited to do so!

    alice xo | beautybyalicee

  • I think a trip to Lush is definitely on the cards for me now!


  • Nice haul! I love the Rose Jam bubble bar so, I can’t wait to try the shower gel. All their Christmas bits smell and look so cute and fun!


  • How do you store your bubble bars when you’re not using them? And how much do you use for each bath? That’s only thing that stops me buying them – storage! 🙂


  • Rose Jam is the best thing to come out of Lush. I’m addicted to it.

  • I always think I’ve tried all the Lush stuff I wanted to try, but everytime I visit a friend who works at Lush in the store, she always shows me something I haven’t tried yet and then of course I cave again.. sigh.


  • Kate Fellows

    Ahh I love Lush! Really want to try the Sea Salt Hair mist x


  • Allison

    Rose jam smells so unbelievably good I can’t even handle it.

  • I went to Lush today but sadly I do not have a bathtub so I can’t get of the bath products. I’m really liking the Bubble Balls and stuff though *sad face* but I’ve gotten myself a Toner Water! Yay!


  • Rachel

    I LOVE the BIG shampoo, I’ve been using it for years and it gives my fine, long hair life. My hair dresser wants me to stop using it since salt dries out your hair and I already bleach it every 8 weeks, but I only use it a twice a week or so and it makes my hair SO clean and I love how it makes my hair smell until I wash it again. I also use the BIG solid conditioner which I like but I have to use a bit of a liquid conditioner or I won’t be able to brush my hair after showering because it’s not super moisturizing. I also love the exfoliating/moisturizing shower bars they sell, especially the black one. I think it’s called I snap the whip or something. It makes your skin SO soft and smells amazing.

  • Andrea Collante

    I just recently got their d’fluff shaving soap with some bath bombs and I’m in scent heaven ! Lovely purchases that you’ve got there, I would love to try their BIG shampoo considering how good they are 🙂


  • I literally just went yesterday – no Christmas stock in New Zealand shops yet though sadly. I have the Salt Spray – it’s fantastic! x

  • I’m not massively into Lush because I haven’t tried many products, definitely need to go in and have a good sniff around and pick up a few things!

  • Thanks for the recommendations…I’m planning to take a trip to Lush this week!


  • The Comforter is my favourite Lush product! I might have to pop by my local Lush tomorrow and have a gander!

  • Oh my, big is my all time fave shampoo from lush, it leaves my hair so nice smelling and looking! And the comforter is amazing as it bubbles up and can last for 4 baths!

    Mmmm I need to buy the Big shampoo now! I always had beachy waves naturally BUT I cut my hair (I was really in need of change) and now I don’t have waves anymore! (well, I can kind of create them, but they’re not MY waves, the ones that were all my friends’ hair envy). I LOVE my short hair (well, it’s actually a bob, not so short, but I used to have reaaaaaaaaally loooooooooong hair) and I don’t regret it at all, but I want my waves back! I don’t know how your hair is, but mine is really strong and I have plenty so it weights down quickly, do you think it will work?

  • Parisian Koala

    Oh yes, lush haul it’s a paradise haul !

  • i definitely need to hear more about the salt spray!
