Obviously, I had to go to Lush to get some bath bombs to try out the tub (and the bath bombs, which I haven't used before because I always have been scared of sitting in the tubs in my previous apartments, even once scrubbed). I got 2 -- the geo phyzz ($7.15), which is composed of sea salts that dissolve slowly in the tub and soften the skin; and the avobath ($5.80), which I have heard turns tub water a lovely avocado green color. As you may have guessed, I used the geo phyzz last night and am saving the avobath for later. Of course, both are vegan.
While at Lush, I browsed their new holiday collection. At 47 days away, as I commented to my salesperson, it is way too early to be thinking about Christmas, etc. She assured me that Lush will be having a black friday sale complete with a DJ, and I assured her I will be there to get my free face something (I forget exactly what) with purchase of a holiday gift set. Until then, my favorite of Lush's vegan holiday items are:
Let Them Eat Cake lip balm (pictured right). A vegan lip balm with the tastes of orange and lemons, currants and sultanas, vanilla and sherry. Clearly top of the list. $6.95.
Satsumo Santa bath bomb (pictured left). Get cosy in the bath with the Santa man? I find this a bit odd, but it features a refreshing citrus fruit blend with manadarin oil, bergamot oil and orange blossom absolute. Sounds yummy to me. $5.95.
Best Wishes gift set (pictured below). Features four holiday bath bombs, all vegan: Satsumo Santa, of course, Mr. Butterball, filled with bits of cocoa butter, So White, and L'il Lush Pud. $19.95 -- the perfect price for a holiday gift.
