Mini shopping trip

I went on a mini shopping spree in Lush on Thursday.  I don’t often go to Lush as my local one is 40 minutes drive away and so not particularly handy although I love it.

The main thing I wanted to get was their Eyes Right mascara.  It comes in the most odd packaging but I guess that is the best way they can make it to make it recyclable?  My first try with it I was a bit irritated, the wand is very odd to use as it is very short and stubby.  I found it caused me to get bits of mascara on my eyelid as I tried to put it on.

My second use of it was a little more successful and I guess I will gradually get used to the stumpy wand.  It left a nice colour on my lashes and 2 coats seemed to be enough to make it look good.  I wanted to try it as I do sometimes get stingy eyes when using other mascaras and felt this one would be good as its supposed to be very gentle and only 1 preservative in it.  Pleased to report my eyes felt fine with it on all day.

I also purchased Herbalisim which I have used before and I always notice a positive effect on my skin when I use it.  In the past I have always had fairly bad skin, however at the moment my skin is looking the best it ever has in my adult life (I am putting it down to the weekly facials in class) and I am hoping using Herbalisim again will bring it as close to perfect looking as I can expect to get.

For my daughter I bought a bath wand which she adores and it creates a lovely pink bubbly bath – what girl wouldn’t love it?

My final item was a Jumping Juniper Shampoo bar.  It smells lovely and lathers quite easily.  My hair felt very clean after using it and I am only sorry I didn’t buy a conditioner to try at the same time.

I did pop into The Body Shop as well, I wanted to check their brushes out and to see their foundation range.  They did have a mineral one that matched my skin colour well but I decided I will wait until I have used  all that I have in the house up first.  I found some Lilly Lolo samples today that I will need to use up as well as my current Max Factor one which i want to get away from.
Overall it was a nice shopping day with a few good bits picked up and new purchases planned all with the ethics that I want to bring into my life.
