Hi my lovelies. After heading to the gym on Saturday I popped into the Lush Store with an urge to splurge. I am a massive Lushie. My skin is very sensitive to a lot of chemicals and preservatives, so Lush is often my go to for skincare. The only things I haven't been able to use are their facial moisturisers, which contain parabens, and some strongly scented products.
Dream Cream is a product that I have used previously and I was in the mood to treat myself to a nice body cream. The parabens act as a preservative for the more natural ingredients. As a result I can't use this cream on my face, however it is fine for the less sensitive skin on my body. It's quite a heavy moisturiser that takes a while to sink in so I would recommend using it at night. That's when I prefer to use it anyway as I find the calming scent helps me nod off. It isn't the cheapest body lotion around at $29.95 for 240g, but if you're looking for a nice treat then I highly recommend it.

If you're wanting to give one of these masks a try, pop into a store and they'll recommend one based on your skin's needs. These can to be kept in the fridge for up to two weeks, although you can freeze them to get a longer shelf life. They retail for $16.95 for 75g or free if you return 5 empty Lush containers to a store.
I also picked up a couple of bath bombs whilst I was there. With uni being so stressful at the moment it's always nice to take some time out for a soak in the tub. I picked out Twilight (top) and Phoenix Rising (bottom). Twilight is my favourite Lush bath ballistic. I find the scent sends me straight off to sleep. Phoenix Rising is my mum's favourite and I thought I'd pick one up for her as she isn't often in the city. Make sure you check out our Instagram as I'm sure to post a picture of my pretty bath water once I have a chance to use it. Both of these retail for $5.95 and it's possible to get multiple uses out of them. Personally having a bath is a luxury for me so I usually go all out and chuck the whole thing in.
That's my little haul done. I was feeling very inspired to blog about my Lush experience as shopping in there is always a pleasure. The assistants are super friendly and I love buying off them because you can tell they genuinely love what they're selling.
