Lush Haul - December 2015

I love a good bath and body haul... Lush, to be exact.

You know when you walk into Target and that bullseye hypnotizes you? You lose control. Frantically buying everything in sight. You're a power house. I get that with Lush.

It's not that I lose all self control. I just tend to buy more than I should because I know I won't revisit for another 5 or 6 months due to location. Sooo I stock up! It was a danger zone in there but I'm very excited at what I purchased. Some were gifts and some were for my personal use. Let's go!

How gorgeous is this Karma Bubble Bar? I don't even want to use it. I just want to display it in my bathroom. Directions say to run under water while drawing bath - more water pressure = more bubbles. This bar smells like a mix of orange and middle eastern spices. So yummy!

Look at that glitter. So. pretty.

Moving on...

Rose Jam Bubbleroom - this bubble bar looks just like a French macaron! The main ingredient in this bar is rose oil, giving it it's sweet, decadent scent. Rose is great for soothing sensitive skin and giving back moisturize wherever you might have a dry patch. Perfect for the wintery months ahead!

How pretty are these white stars? These Stardust bath bombs are made with Fair Trade vanilla extract  and smell SO GOOD. I also love that their sparkles are made with biodegradable materials and not plastic. I gifted these to my boyfriend's two cousins - I hope they love it!

I actually purchased this Creamy Candy Bubble Bar a few months back. I've been saving it have been swooning over the scent since I purchased it. I love the vanilla scent it gives off during a crumbling in the bath. With a cold this week I decided to draw a bath to relieve some congestion and oh boy my skin felt so soft I completely forgot to use lotion.

I can definitely smell why this is a best-seller. Let the Good Times Roll is my first-ever shower scrub. The scent is heavy, like caramel-butter popcorn and smells so so so delicious. I have to restrain myself from trying to nibble a piece whenever I use it. How cute is the jar!?

This Honey Bee Bath Bomb is definitely my favorite pick of this haul. If it wasn't obvious from my blog theme I love anything having to do with bees, honey, flowers, etc. The scent is wonderful, it definitely smells like more of a luxurious product. One of my favorite things about Lush is that item looks a bit different. This bath bomb gets its brown coloring from Moroccan Rhassoul mud - gently cleansing and softening the skin.

Big Blue is definitely not something I would have initially reached for. I'm not particularly a fan of scents that give hint to the oceanside but I decided to try something new. I've also seen images on their Instagram page of this bath bomb in use and the color is amazing in the tub. One of the main ingredients is Arame Seaweed, softening skin when wet.

I hope you found this review helpful, let me know if you've tried any of these and if you'll be picking up your own products too!

Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir Mascara - Influenster Review

My favorite packages come in little black boxes...

Today I'm sharing another product review that was sent over from Influenster. If you have not been on Influenster here is my profile page. I've reviewed many products before and they just seem to get better and better every month. Although these products were sent to me, all opinions are my own.

So a quick overview on my lashes: I have very long lashes, but not that many. Pretty sparse actually. Whenever I use mascara I tend to get that spider-leg look. 

When I first used this mascara I noticed the hourglass shape with dozens of tiny little fibers on the bristle. I knew right away this would provide amazing volume - and I was right! Each fiber coats my lashes evenly so I'm not left with the spider legs look. 

My lashes also tend to droop downward and I noticed they're stayed curled throughout the whole day - another win!!

This product is a great gift for the holidays, and maybe a graduation or birthday present as well.
