Lush Retro: Bath, body, and Bare Naked Lady

This week has been the busiest week I've had in a long time, but I'll stop making excuses for why I haven't posted anything in over a week. You don't really care. But maybe you do? Hopefully you do. 
(Psst, I got my car back!)

But onto the Lush goodies.

I recently made a purchase for some Retro products from the Lush website, because I'd been dying to try some of the items we can't get in the store. Mainly like all of it. 

So I picked up a few things to start out small. Canadian Maple Soap was the first thing I wanted to try, because do you really need a reason?
While I like the smell of it, it was not what I was expecting. It's earthier than I expected, less sweet. I guess I'm just used to Mrs. Butterworth's instead of real maple syrup.

The next this is this pretty little thing - All That Jas bath bomb. If you love the smell of Silky Underwear, then you should get this. It's literally Silky Underwear in a bath bomb. I haven't used it yet, so I don't know what it looks like or what it smells like in the bath, but in its dry form it's lovely.

I know what you're thinking. "Bare Naked Lady? Isn't Silky Underwear cheeky enough?" No, it isn't. We're a British company, nothing is cheeky enough. Not even the lickable massage bars.
But what makes this dusting powder so lovely is not only the rose absolute, but also the sparkles (!) and calamine powder. The calamine powder is soothing, smells wonderful and refreshing, and makes your skin feel so powdery soft that I cannot imagine going to Sasquatch without this stuff. Sparkles are always appropriate for music festivals, and anything that can soothe burns, soften the skin, and smell like a sexy older women is good in my book.
There was one final product that I did purchase - the Tuca Tuca solid perfume, but I hated it so I gave it to my manager because she was the only one who liked it. If you like violet leaf and vetivert, try it out, but it was way too much violet for me. I was expecting more sandalwood, but NOPE. 

What retro products have you tried? Which ones are you dying to try? My next purchase will have to include the Tramp shower gel (once I get rid of some of this damn soap I have) the Shnuggle body butter, and maybe a piece of Waylander Rhassoul soap. But that won't be for awhile. I have way too much soap to use up. 

I'll be back this week I promise. No more 7 day stints of posting nothing. But I am still consistently uploading to my YouTube channel, where I just recently reached 10,000 subscribers. So you can always catch me there on Mondays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.

  1. I really love the Retro line of products, but I've got to say that my favorite is still the Uluru bath bomb. Fox in the Flowers was great too when I used it with a Green bubbleroon, but I think Rose Queen won my heart in the end. I'm trying so hard just to focus on using the bath stuff I have, but now you've got me daydreaming about getting more. Maybe come April. <3
