Mini Lush Haul: Lord of Misrule, Rose Jam Body Wash, and Celebrate Lotion

So a few weeks ago, I went to California to visit family. While out and about, my sister and I ventured into Lush to buy a few things. Now that it's fall, I enjoy taking relaxing baths and showers and Lush helps make my bath super relaxing!

The first item I picked up was the Lord of Misrule bath bomb. It smells amazing! The scent has patchouli in it. It's a limited edition Halloween bath bomb so hurry up and grab it before it is gone! Spoiler Alert: In the bath, the bomb starts out making a green slime and then fades creating a tub filled with a purple red center. It's like bathing in wine! Spoiler Over I loved the bomb so much I wanted to stay in the tub forever. In fact this has become my second favorite bomb (Big Blue is the first). The scent lasted during the one and a half hours I was in the tub. My boyfriend said he could smell the scent in his bedroom and down the hall midway into the following day so this bomb has a pretty strong/long-lasting scent. Next time I visit my local store I am going to buy a million. :P

The next thing I picked up was the Rose Jam Body Wash that is a limited edition Christmas product. It smells just like their Rose Jam Bubbleroon (bubble bath). I loved the Rose Jam bubbleroon scent...just not the bubbleroon (that is a story for another day). I was glad that with the wash I would get to keep the scent and not the other stuff. If you decide to try the product as a shampoo, it makes your hair silky soft and the smell lasts in your hair for 16 hrs. I timed it, people. Yes, I'm crazy. On my body, Rose Jam made my skin smell really good and feel really soft. However, the smell doesn't last long after the shower. Additionally, I got lots of lather from this wash when using it with my personal mini loofah. Please, don't buy this product. I bought the tiniest bottle at the store (for $10.95), and I really want to stock up on it. And if you buy it there will be none for me :(

My final selection was Celebrate body lotion. I picked it up because it has a wonderful citrus-y smell. It's a bit pricy for lotion at $29.95 for 7.7 oz of product, but Lush makes good quality products with ingredients that I trust so I don't mind the price as much. Plus, the lotions last FOREVER!!! I'll be passing this one on to my grandchildren someday! :P It shares its scent with the Golden Wonders Bath Bomb. I, personally, have not tried this bomb, but it is sitting in my stash after another recent Lush run. This lotion's scent lasts at least four hours and it is very creamy and moisturizing (Anna would agree, she tried a bit during our after shopping drinks/dinner). I do want to warn people who are sensitive to citrus oils/fruits before they decide to purchase this, however. I have a minor sensitivity to citrus and get rashes with prolonged exposure. I would have used this product all October long except that after a week of exclusively using this lotion, my skin started to feel a bit itchy. Now I just use it once before I go out/want a nice scent on me during the day.
