Mall Time + LUSH

 Hey guys!!!!!! Sorry I have not posted in a little while. I started fall semester this week and yesterday was my birthday!!! Wooooooooh! 21 now! But this post is a actually about last week. 

There used to be a LUSH in Town Center mall that is like 5 minutes away from my school. But they closed it about a month ago. I guess it stops my pattern of just "stopping in" when I do not have to go to work after class. Now though I have to drive to Perimeter mall closer to Atlanta.

It was the week before school so my friend Alyssa and I decided that we would go to the mall and shop before we have to start. It was a great way to relieve the stress of starting class and trying to get in the classes that we need. For some reason at my school it is crazy hard to get the exact classes that you need. 
 We both got mugs from Anthropology that have our initials on them. Then I got a belt and a pair of earrings from Forever 21. Then we went to LUSH!!!!!
 I am obsessed with the Ocean Salt scrub. I have gotten samples from the LUSH that was at Town Center. Finally I broke down and bought the tub. It is totally worth the $20. My skin loves this stuff.

 This is what the inside of the tub looks like. It is very chunky. I tend to use this in the shower because it will go everywhere. I would not suggest using this everyday. Especially if you have very delicate skin. I think I kind of overwhelmed my skin a little bit and have cut back to using it every other day or every two days. I was trying to think of a way to describe this but I think that the description on the LUSH website explains it pretty well. 

"Back in 2005, our inventors had come up with a number of fantastic cleansers but there was one category they had yet to conquer: The scrub! A sea salt scrub! With that, they whipped up (our now enormously popular) Ocean Salt. Washing with Ocean Salt is like taking your face on a trip to the seaside for an invigorating splash in the water. We mix in fresh avocado and coconut to hydrate thirsty skin, while the antibacterial effects of lime and vodka is ideal for blocked pores, blackheads or blemishes. The minerals in sea salt soften as it scrubs away dirt and blockages."
Then I got the Brazened Honey fresh mask to try. You do have to keep this one refrigerated. It is the first time that I have tried a fresh mask. They are only $6.95 so I thought I would give it a try. I will say that it looks kind of gross in the tub. It is supposed to be a brightening mask and clear congested skin. Now I am not a 100%  sure it brightened by my skin did feel better after the mask. While you have the mask on though it kind of makes you look like a monster/creature because it is a pale yellow and when it dries it gets all crumbly looking.

I hope everyone has a great first day of classes!



  1. happy birthday my dear!! we're both august birthdays :) you're a year older than i am though -- i totally wish i was 21!
    i can't believe you've never tried any of lush's fresh face masks! you're going to love them -- especially brazened honey. it's my FAVORITE! i'm really bummed because i'm all out of brazened honey, and the nearest Lush is 5 and a half hours away :( ahhh that's the bummer thing about being back at college -- i'm so much farther from the mall of america!!


  2. Thank you!!!!!!! I am pretty excited, I'm the last of my friends to turn 21. So they have all been able to go out to places that I can't. Now I can!

    I do not know why I never tried them. I was researching before we went to the mall and I was like I'm going to get one of these.

    5 Hours! That really stinks! I thought having to drive 45 minutes was bad. At least they sell somethings online!
