I literally screamed (with joy) when I saw that familiar LUSH logo when I saw Te Awa's opening adds. The Awa is the new shopping area that is being built at Te Rapa. Phase 1 dah siap, opening day was last thurs, so dia iklan la dalam paper. One of of the shop is LUSH!!!
I got addicted to LUSH on my uni days kat Aberdeen. Some of their products are utterly weird, but they smell divine! If you're not familiar with their stuff, going to their shop for the first time can be very overwhelming..sensory overload..
The first ever stuff that I bought was a bar of karma soap. Boy, I was pleasantly shock when I took it home. My whole bathroom smelt nice when I had the shower. Karma is a bit hit and miss though, either you like it or you don't
I even managed to get my dear hubby to use some of their soaps, to my surprise he still remember middle earth :) Sadly LUSH don't make them anymore :(
When we were moving to NZ, I knew they are a few branches in NZ, but not in Hamilton, so I always order online or visited they store when I was in Adeilade and Sydney. Normally kalau order online, will order conditioner to last me a few months at least. Last sekali order just before christmas last yr, so lama dah la jugak..
I have many favourites..
Skinny dip is one of my favourite item from LUSH esp in winter. Initially they make it in shower gel form, then change it to shower cream BUT now..as I have found out today, they have discotinued it altogether!!! Huwaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa....Kalau kat UK, at least you sometimes can special order discontinued items through their forum, if they get enough orders, they'll whipp out a batch untuk sapa2 yg order..tapi kat sini mana nak cariii..huhuhu..sedihnya la..punya lama tunggu LUSH mai Hamilton ni..
Tadi beli figs and leaves, floating island and demon in the dark for dear hubby, ni dia yg nak...x boleh beli banyak2 la..mahal :(((
He said I should locum so I could buy LUSH..LOL
My bathroom now has that familiar LUSH smell again :)
