Lush has gone all out with cheek for Valentine’s Day 2019 and the new Eve’s Cherry Lip Scrub is no exception. Lush lip scrubs are a fun experience if you’ve never tried them. The Lip Scrub comes in a 0.8 oz glass jar that’s packed to the brim and the cost for Eve’s Cherry is $7.95.
Eve’s Cherry is dark pinkish red and to me the flavor is full on cherry. However, if you hate cherry cough syrup you might want to try another flavor. Next on my list is Chocolate!
I love the formula of this one too. It has jojoba and shea butter which does condition my lips. I use a tiny bit, rub it in then lick off. I personally love the taste!
These jars last a long time too, a little goes a long way!
Lush is a bit on the pricey side and I admit to blowing my beauty budget in one trip but is it really possible to enjoy Lush on a budget? I say it is and here’s how.
Don’t use the whole thing! – I never use an entire Bubble Bar or Bath Bomb in one shot. The bubble bars cut up very easily and I get 7-10 uses out of the large ones like Brightside. I’ve also been known to hack apart a bath bomb. It’s a little more effort to break these up but it can be done. The Bath Bombs are pricey at $6.95 to $12.95 each so getting a few soaks out of one is worth it.
Set a budget before you walk into Lush. – Walking into Lush is an amusement park for your senses and it’s so easy to just haphazardly start throwing things into that cute Lush basket but it can add up fast so keep a metal tally of how much you’re spending and stick to your predetermined number.
Check the expiration date and buy the correct size. – Lush has a ton of amazing facial cleansers but most of my favorites expire in 3-4 months and you don’t want to end up throwing out excess expired product. For example I buy the 3.5 oz tub of Dark Angels for $14.95 and that lasts me about 3 months because I only use it 1-2 times per week and a little goes a long way. Also keep in mind that the Lush Fresh Masks only last 2 weeks so those are good to share with a friend.
Share with a friend. – Another way to save money is to share with a friend. It’s super easy to chop up the Lush glycerine soap. I cut them up for my guest bath but you could get 4 of your friends together and each buy one bar. Then just quarter the bar and everyone gets to try four different varieties.
Shop the Lush Boxing Day sale. – Every year on December 26th Lush has a 50% off and Buy 1, Get 1 sale on Boxing day for their holiday collection both online and in stores. This is a great time to stock up and save a ton of money. Even the gift boxes are on sale.
Try a shampoo bar. – I get 40 to 50 washes out of a Lush Shampoo Bar. The bars run $9.95 to $12.95 which comes out to about .20 per shampoo which I think is worth it.
Get samples. – When you go to a Lush store not only do you get to try everything you can even take home sample pots. I get 3 to 5 samples every time I go to Lush. I love trying the hair products before I buy. Each pot gives you 3-5 uses.
Turn in your black pots. – This is a great deal. “Bring back 5 empty, clean black LUSH pots to your local shop for recycling and we’ll give you a Fresh Face Mask, FREE!”
The bottom line is…don’t be intimidated by what you’ve heard about Lush. While they are known for being pricey on some products you can really get a nice stash for just $25 and don’t forget the samples.
The Lush Valentine’s Day 2019 collection is pretty amazing and even has an homage to Madonna with the Open Your Heart Bubble Bra. This unique bubbleroon depicts Madonna’s iconic bullet bra and even adds some plastic-free golden luster!
The bubbles on this one are amazing and the scent is divine with lemon, Sandalwood, Cardamom and it also smells like a pear!
And the Murumuru Butter center is super for dry winter skin!
The Lush Snowflake Bubble Spinner has orange, lemon and a slight bit of patchouli to give it some holiday spice. The Snowflake Spinner creates a nice fluffy pile of bubbles when it runs under the facet. You can hold the spinner by the wooden peg to make it twirl! This one a tiny bit of glitter too.
The Lush Wow Box is the ultimate Lush gift! If you’re a Lush fanatic like me then the Wow gift box is probably on your Christmas wish list. The 2018 Lush Wow Box has 46 products and costs. $389.95. I have reviewed many of the products in this box so you can see what you’re getting.
Lush Christmas 2018 has arrived and I am so excited about the Lush Festive Friends Fun. The Christmas fun has Red, Green, Gold, Silver, White, Blue, Pink and Black. The scents are Lemon, lime and orange.
I have been waiting for a new Fun combination and while I miss Snow Fairy this is a nice one! I love that it comes in the big roll. Fun can be used as soap, shampoo and bubble bath!
