After my spending ban ended last month I indulged in some shopping and on my rounds of Leeds' city centre I stepped into Lush. I've always liked Lush's products but something happened to me on that fateful day... I walked into the shop and everything started to appeal to me. One of the most helpful shop assistants I've ever come across guided me from product to product and I left with a handful of treats (as shown in my Lush Haul post) but craving a whole bunch more. Now, I'm not really in a position to just go out and buy all the items I'm going to be mentioning today but I do hope to try them all out eventually and naturally when I do I'll review them for on here for you guys. Some of the products I'll be mentioning I've been lusting after for a long time and others have only recently been brought to my attention but as far as I'm concerned all of these things are downright gorgeous!
Hopefully this post with help you if you're looking for Lush products to try or maybe even if you need some Christmas gift inspiration (Lush products make wonderful gifts).

Top row: Whipstick Lip Balm, Dream Cream Body Lotion, Yuzu and Cocoa Bubble Bar.
Bottom row: Snowcake Soap, Hair Doctor Hair and Scalp Mask, Honey Bee Bath Bomb.
Whipstick Lip Balm £5.75
I've had a love affair with Lush's Honey Trap Lip Balm all year long but next year I think Whipstick might be the lip balm I replace it with. Whipstick has a chocolatey-orange scent and like Honey Trap it is really lovely and nourishing.
Dream Cream Body Lotion £11.25 (240g)
I've heard about this a few times on Evelyn's blog (the first beauty blog I ever started reading and one I still check daily) and I can't believe I haven't tried it yet! It sounds wonderful for dry skin and I regularly suffer from dry skin, and also from eczema flare ups, so from the sounds of it this is the perfect product for me.
Yuzu and Cocoa Bubble Bar £3.25
Oh hold me! The scent, the scent ladies and gentlemen is just scrumptiolicious (it deserves a word all of its own). This is a bubble bar so you'd crumble this up under running water and the result would be mountains of delicately scented bubbles that would fill your bath. There is nothing I'd like more than to have one of these to hand on a cold winter night and sink down into a warm bath.
Snowcake Soap £3.25 (100g)
Almond lovers, beware! Your heart might just be stolen by this soap. This is a Christmas Limited Edition product and it smells truly and thoroughly of almonds. It's warming, lathers like a dream and scents whatever room it is left sitting in. I'm definitely going to treat myself to some of this before the winters out.
Hair Doctor Hair and Scalp Mask £6.95 (95g)
I've let my hair go a little bit too long without a hair cut so in the mean time, whilst it's not on top form, I like to help it along a bit with hair masks. This hair and scalp mask sounds perfect for me and for anyone who's hair isn't quite looking as 'happy' as they'd like it to be!
Honey Bee Bath Bomb £3.25
This one of Lush's Bath Bombs - these don't produce bubbles like the bubble bars but they do scent and colour your bathwater. Honey Bee has a very gentle honey scent that will work for honey obsessives and for those who don't love overwhelmingly sweet scents. I find it delicate but moreish and I can't wait to give it a whirl.
Top Row: No Drought Dry Shampoo, Randy Butter, Buffy Body Scrub, Let the Good Times Roll Cleanser
Bottom Row: American Cream Hair Conditioner, Oatifix Fresh Face Mask
No Drought Dry Shampoo £6.75 (115g)
I've heard a lot of people declare their love for this dry shampoo and as a regular user of the stuff myself, I'm very keen to get in on a good thing! I haven't tried it, smelt it or any of that jazz for myself, but word on the street is that this stuff rocks.
Randy Butter Buttercream £5.20 (100g)
This is only available online (unless you live near the Poole store) so again this is a product I know very little about. All I know is that from the description on the website it sounds like something fun. It's described as boozy, Christmassy - full of brandy and cinnamon. Who doesn't want to smell like a Christmas pudding?
Buffy Body Scrub £6.25 (90g)
I always find that it's easier to keep my skin soft and hydrated when I exfoliate. The Buffy Body Scrub (apart from having an awesome name) seems as though it will offer a thorough exfoliation without being too harsh on the skin. It's also full of cocoa and shea butter so it will hopefully also inject a bit of moisture back into my skin as you use it.
Let the Good Times Roll Cleanser £6.35 (100g)
I've been really enjoying the Lush Buche de Noel cleanser and I'd like to try another one out when I finish it up. Let the Good Times Roll smells really nice, sweet but not overpowering, and the consistency seems as though it will lend itself well to cleansing. But if I'm totally honest, the name was what won me over.
American Cream Hair Conditioner £4.50 (100g)
This was recommended to me on twitter not long ago and it sounds great! I have fine hair but it does get dry and I spend a lot of time trying to keep it looking and feeling lush (no pun intended..). With my trusty Kerestase conditioner almost at an end this seems like a perfect replacement.
Oatifix Fresh Face Mask £5.95 (75g)
This is the only product on my wishlist that I've already tried. It smells amazing, oat-y and sweet and not too unlike the porridge soap which is one of my favourites. It's for dry skin but although I have combination skin the wind has been playing havoc with the dry areas of my face. Usually my oily t-zone is what I worry about most but now dry patches are my worst enemy! I need a pot of this in my life again, it works wonders.
You've now seen my extortionately long Lush wish list - I really hope I can give some of these products a try over the upcoming months! What Lush products are you lusting after? Or is there anything that isn't on my list that you would recommend?
