Several weeks ago in March, Kalmo (Cambo Soup) came to visit me! As some of you may know, Kalmo and I used to live in the same town where we both went to school, and we had hung out a couple times last fall. But last winter, she moved to southern California, and we haven't seen each other since, until last month, when she told me that she was coming back to the Bay Area for a visit.
We were both really excited to see each other, and talked nonstop while fiance drove us to San Jose for some girls time and shopping. As soon as she saw me, she handed me a wedding book to help plan my wedding :) Thank you so much sweetie!
Before we got to the mall, we also stopped by David's Bridal for my first ever wedding gown try-out. It was an interesting experience, even though I didn't end up picking the two styles I had tried on that day, but I had a lot of fun.
I stopped by LUSH to pick up some of their Valentine's bath products.
Lush Love Soap -- It's shaped like a heart and covered full of red glitters, and is scented like Sex Bomb Bath Bomb.
The Ex Factor Bath Bomb -- It looks like a gingerbread man with a cute little pink heart on his chest, how adorable! It smells like Lush Butterball.
Magic Mushroom Bubble Bar -- This is my favorite out of the three. It looks like a really cute pink mushroom. The red cap is scented like Yummy Yummy, and the bottom white part is Vinallary scented. My bath with this bubble bar was truly a fun experience, it smells so yummy, and made my bath water pink :)
Lastly, a Sex Bomb. The little pink flower inside is so pretty!
I also picked up some LUSH fresh masks to try out. I was always really afraid to buy these masks as they only have about 3 weeks before they expire, since they are made with all fresh ingredients. I don't always remember to do mask every day, and sometimes I even go weeks without doing one. So I didn't want to buy these fresh masks and waste them. However, Kay and Catherine informed me that the unused portions of the masks could be frozen and thawed again when ready to use. As soon as I got home, I froze two of the masks, and two weeks later when I defrosted them again to use, they were fresh as new :) I am glad that I now know this trick, especially since I don't live near a LUSH store, so if I go, I'd have to stock up on my goodies.
The three masks I picked up are:
Catastrophie Cosmetic -- this is my favorite out of the three. It has a very smooth texture, very easy to apply, and smells like blueberry = so yum!
Cosmetic Warrior -- works wonderfully for blemishes and oily skin, BUT has such a strong garlic smell that made me hate it. There are also garlic pieces in this mask, make sure you don't smear one right next to your nose! If you have super sensitive nose, and dislike garlic, don't try this one at home. haha
Cupcake -- hmm chocolate cupcake batter in a tub, is exactly what it looks/smells like. This is also a yummy one to use!
A cool thing I found out about LUSH fresh masks -- if you bring back 5 clean black LUSH pots back to the store, you would receive a free fresh mask! What a great incentive to encourage people to not toss the plastic containers, but to bring back to the store so they can be properly recycled.
I've finished all 3 masks by now, and will do a more detailed review on them soon!
Have you tried any LUSH fresh masks? Which ones do you like or recommend for me to try next?
