Boxing day lush haul!!

So I headed down to Lush and took advantage of the 'spend £20 and get any gift set free' offer. The shop was very quiet when I got there at about 10:30 according to the staff it was absolute chaos from the minute they opened. Apparently they had fairytale sets, Christmas eve sets and legends sets which people were really excited about getting for free. Only problem there is that the legends gift set was brought out after 1st October and wasn't technically a Christmas gift so it wasn't included in the offer.

I did buy two more sexy boy massage bars and I need to stock up on these before they disappear I'm kind of in love with them. I also got a honey bee bath ballistic, I've never tried this one before, it's got a very light sweet fragrance and is supposed to be soothing. I haven't used any of the products I've bought yet so I can't comment on whether they deliver on their promises.

The next thing I bought was the floating island bath melt which has a sweet but woody scent which is hard to describe. This melt is supposed to be particularly soothing and moisturising and I'm quite excited to use it- is that sad?

Next up is the comforter bubble bar which when I smelled last time I went to lush I absolutely hated. This time round I adore it and have spent at least half an hour today sniffing it like a freak - weird. This is a pretty big product for the price and I think this particular piece could be split into three baths worth. Value for money yey.

There is an offer for a free tins when you buy two massage or shampoo bars and because I bought two sexy boy bars I got a free tin which doesn't actually fit them in. I'm sure I'll find some use for it.

So because I spent over £20 I got to pick out a gift set for free yey for free stuff!! I'd been thinking about buying the vanillary perfume but I couldn't justify spending £25 on a pefume that I had no idea how long it would last, if I would get annoyed by the intensity of the vanilla scent. I decided after much deliberation to get the vanilla scoop set which has the full size perfume inside, a vanilla fountain bath ballistic, a 250g vanilla dee-lite lotion and a full size vanilla dusting powder. I'm beyond impressed with this offer and I love all the products in the gift set and I'm seriously tempted to go back and buy some more things I've been lusting after for a while just to get another free set!!

There was one issue with my lush haul, when I looked at my receipt about an hour later I saw that the sa had put through two satsumo santas when I clearly hadn't bought any. I went back to lush and spoke to the sa and they were very cool about it and refunded the amount straight away. Then we hit a snag, the refund took my total under £20 hmm what to do. I didn't particularly want any other products that day so I asked the sa what he would recommend and he suggested a tea tree toner tab. Problem solved!! He also said that because he had messed up he felt bad and gave me a lil lush pud :) . I've got to say I love the staff at my local store and the customer service I receive every time I go there impresses me massively.

When I get round to using these products I will post a few reviews rounding up the best and worst of the bunch. I actually have alot of reviews of lush products that will be popping up soon because December was the month I went lush crazy!!

Anyhoo I'd really appreciate your feedback on what your favourite products from lush are, pop them in the comments and I'll investigate (that's code for buying more stuff!!)
