This post is the next long-awaited instalment of my product empties series, where I chat about products I’ve used up and give a short verdict for if I’ll repurchase or not. I’ve chosen to do these posts quarterly, because I am naturally horrendous at committing to emptying products I’ve opened and monthly posts wouldn’t be interesting with one or two empties…
We are now well into March (urgh), and unless you’ve been living in hibernation you would have seen the Easter themed products, chocolates and decorations in stores recently in the lead up to the Easter season. Which means, it’s time to prepare yourself for another limited edition range from LUSH!
If you’ve watched my Instagram stories or keep up to date with my feed, you’ll know I am slightly obsessed with candles and bath bombs. They are pretty much my two favourite things in this world – besides tea! There is just something so warm and comforting about a candle that radiates an aroma you love, and we all know how fun and relaxing a bath bomb can be.
I find coordinated gift sets some of the cutest gifts going around, so when I found that Bellabox released their ‘Bellobox’ subscription service a few years ago for men to go along with the female ‘Bellabox’ counterpart I instantly became interested.
The season of love is upon us! And with it, comes a very special time for LUSH to spread the love with one of their best limited edition collections! To celebrate the release of their 2017 limited edition Valentine’s Day collection which is online NOW and in stores on the 26th January, I’ll be sharing with you some of the items you can purchase for some special time with your loved one (or yourself, just sayin’).
If you’re any sort of LUSH fan, you’re going to want to read this.
Introducing Oh Deer Sugar, a non-edible bakery that specialises in handcrafting completely vegan bath and body goods that look and smell like your favourite foods. They are an incredibly ethically minded store that sources high quality ingredients without hurting the environment, and NONE of their ingredients are tested on animals. It’s a relatively small company run by two (quite impressive) women who hand-make these goodies right here in Adelaide! They run both a physical store in the City, and an online store which you can find here.
Generally, I’m pretty horrible with committing to finishing products I’ve opened, because I get too excited about things I buy or receive that I just want to open up and try everything I own! However recently, I’ve really challenged myself to completely use up products I have opened, and to only open another product when I need to. Of course, this isn’t true for EVERYTHING. It’s pretty much impossible to only use up one product in category, and being a beauty blogger I do receive quite a few products for editorial consideration so I have a responsibility to open and use up products to create my content – but I’m trying to as best I can. It’s what people called ‘shopping your stash’ or ‘shopping your beauty cupboard’. It’s money saving – because you don’t throw out products that go old because you don’t use them up – and it’s also a more economical way to live.
