Lush: Haul,mini review,New easter + Mothers day items!

It's that time again my lovelies!
I had another lush trip last week, and thought id share with you what I gots myself :)
My best mate steph came up to stay with me for 4 days, we had such a great time!
Thursday we went to Leeds to have a good old spend up.
We went to tkmaxx, Lush and primark.
Three shops isn't alot but we spent so long in each one, after an hour in lush and 2 hours in primark, (my god what are we like??) we had to go home as it was so late
haha :')
In Lush..
The ladies gave us a little arm and hand massage where I tried out some new products including ocean salt, and ultra bland (which I so want)
also the very expensive gorgeous cream that was designed for Princess Diana herself.
the lady gave me a sneaky sample to take home too, so let me know if you'd like a review, i haven't seen any around the beauty bloggers community.
All the products I bought are first time purchases so I'm excited to see how I get on with them.
This is what I bought:
1. Happy Blooming
2. Mmm Melting Marshmallow Moment
3. Space Girl
4. A sample of Vanilla in the mist soap.- steph asked the lady for this as she wants me to try it, big sample huh?
5. Bubble gum sugar lip scrub
6. Angels on bare skin sample- Ive used this, and my gosh its AMAZING!
I also bought two vitamin C toner tabs + A face mask which il mention later.

A Mini Review on the Bubble Gum Lip scrub

Wow this is love. Steph let me try hers before buying this, and immediately i fell in love with it, it smells de-lish, and tastes it too!
My lips feel so soft thanks to this baby, its such a genius idea, I mean who would have thought to put sugar on your lips?
I wipe the excess sugar after scrubbing as I don't want to look like I've just eaten a very sugary cake or something.
Altho its very pink, (not editing either) it doesn't leave your lips pink, in fact theres no colour what so ever, which is a good thing.
Ive heard some people say that there lip scrub lasts 3 months? well all the ones in the shop last a its worth the money, I can see this lasting a long time.

Okay so to the face mask I bought..
This is a sad story a very sad story..
..and I'm sure if stephs reading this shes laughing to herself (meanie) lol
as she was there..

Me and steph were getting excited to going out, I decided to have little pampering session,
I used the vitamin c toner tab, then applied this face mask. as the lady in the shop said the tab opens your pours and helps the face mask to work better.
So I did so.. and I actually loved this face mask!! it smelt de-lish!
the best I had tried by lush, cupcake and oatafix made me gag! >.< class="blsp-spelling-corrected" id="SPELLING_ERROR_29">that's
I was thinking to myself, I can see me re purchasing this and its just Devinne.
I washed it off after 10 minutes, no problems what so ever, my face felt re freshed. Great!
That night I went to put my make up on for the night out, I applied my body shop vitamin E moisturiser as I always do before applying foundation, I applied a dab to my cheeks,chin nose and forehead as usual.
rubbed it in...
My face started to turn red..and started to sting..ouch..
I went upstairs to wash my face with cold water, as I thought i was just hot.
came back down stairs to the mirror and make up, I still looked red but thought hey whatever, and applied some foundation...then my face felt like it was on fire, it was really burning. Steph looked at me and she knew something was up..
I looked like soo red. it was awful, it felt and looked like i had been under the sun for 10 hours and really sun burnt, my face was soo painful.
I had an allergic reaction..but i was confused because I always use the body shop moisturiser, its actually my favorite.
then i looked in the mirror,
and noticed that everything was red except around my eyes, and then it hit me that's how i applied the face mask.
It could have been the mixture of the face mask and vitamin e cream, or could have been the mixture of the cream face mask and toner tab.
I am so scared to use any of them again, as I've never had an allergic reaction before.
it scared me a little, I had to sit with sudocrem on my face all night just to calm it down.
it worked thank god, but i had to cancel going out! :(
The next night i was so scared to put anything on my face..
i tried a baby wipe and even that stung me.
the only thing I've tried since then is angels on bare skin..which thankfully was okay.
I'm no longer using a lush face mask, just in case. I'm so sad tho as i thought they wer great.
I hope I haven't scared you into buying them, as it may have just been a one of for me!

Anyway this is what it looks breaks my heart that i cant use it again! lol..

What a lovely review :D
Now I'm thinking of buying the Bubble gum sugar lip scrub myself when I'm living in the UK :) My lips need something that actually works!
Such a shame you got an allergic reaction to the face mask though :( it's always hard to find out what you were allergic to aswell ;\
Hope you can find a new face mask that you're not allergic to, but works just as well tho :)
Love reading these reviews!!

Michelle said...

I love the lip scrubs, I'm currently using the Sweet Lips one, vanilla and chocolate ;D

Its such a shame to hear about the allergic reaction :( I use the Catastrophe Cosmetic facemask as well, the others don't smell too pretty haha!

And yaaay for Space Girl, I love that product!

hannahbabeyxo said...

I cant wait to try the new easter stuff! Aw im sorry you had such a bad reaction bless you! XO

Monika said...

The easter stuff looks so cute, can't wait to get my hands on some.
Awh gosh what a Catastrophe you had with your face mask (sorry haha I'm lame) that really sucks though maybe you skin was extra sensitive to the mask because your pores were open or something.
Look forward to the reviews! x
