The Windsor Lush is at Devonshire Mall. However, there is a Lush opening this week (or so I hear) at Somerset Collection in Troy!

Unfortunately, I didn't get to the shops in time for the Free-for-all promotions. Which gifts did you get, Jill1228?

I am such a Lush junkie! I shop at the store on Decatur St. in the French Quarter whenever I can. I also get stuff from the website that I can't find in the store, so I'm well covered as far as Lush is concerned.

My favorite scent of theirs is Karma. I have a bar of Karma soap and a jar of Karma Kream. Wonderful stuff, that.

I have a jar of the Dream Cream, but that's not as nice-smelling, imho.

I've gotta try the Aromacreme. I have a cake of Fuwari and about half a cake of the Teo deodorant bars. While they cover up the BO, they don't protect as well against the perspiration. And, living in a humid climate, I tend to sweat. A lot.

Yeah, the stench is a tad overpowering, isn't it?

I managed to get in on the Free-For-All when I went in shopping today. I managed to snag a Chirpy Christmas box set and (because the last two remaining CCs were gone in the minute between me picking up my first one and my purchase being rung up) Yule Dude box set. My brother wasn't all that upset. He said he plans on giving half to his gf, but he'll keep the parts he actually thinks he'd use, which I think means only the aftershave, but hey...free!

Here is the haul from yesterday
Purchases and free gifts
http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y13...ictures041.jpg

One of my dear friends in Vancouver told me they had MASS amounts 17 Cherry Tree Lane soap at the Robson Street location in downtown Vancouver. Since she works in downtown she got me da hookup. I needed some since it was going bye bye (I can't believe they discontinued it)


She got me hella amounts of 17 CTL soap and 2 Jingle Spells bath bombs

The gifts she got me were:
Chirpy Christmas and the Christmas Special

She also got some stuff for herself and asked me if she could have the Blue Skies gel in one of the gifts. Uh hello girl--like you have to ask! So she is snagging it. She also got a Score Four for herself (Lemony Flutter, Dream Cream, Ocean Salt and Imperialis)

Now just gotta wait for her to ship it down here for me

Now for the nearest Lush Anon meeting

Bumping this thread because I recently discovered Lush thanks to some friends and now love it. What I don't love, however, is the bright yellow ring that it leaves around my tub.

When I initially read the title of this thread I thought Being a Lush=Being a drunk.

It's the alcoholic in me I guess. Sorry.

haha... ME TOO.

But, I really do LOVE LUSH.

My favorite: Honey I Washed the Kids soap and Mr. Butterball. It's just SO expensive.

I had that problem too... so I asked one of the girls that worked at my local Lush... She said it was probably because I didn't wash my tub enough... So i started washing more and it's fine now.

But the thing is that you need to wash it right away or else it stains!!

I tried to PM you in case it was embarrassing that but your PM box is full.

Oh thanks. I scrubbed it and it looks better now, but still visible. I got some kind of honey thing. Won't be using that again. I didn't have that problem with butterball. I love that one.

I got a free BB Seaweed mask when I was buying bath bombs and I tried it today. Love it. You have to keep it refrigerated though and I'm not sure how long its shelf life is.

Thanks! OK..since I live out in Ohio and there are no cool stores such as Lush, I need advice then on what to buy. My skin is a little on the complex side which is why I have tried so many products. You name it I have probably tried it. My skin isn't acne prone per say but blackheads/whitehead prone. If I use too strong of a product though my skins gets really dry and flaky easily. I know some of you seem to know this product very well and might know what would work on my skin. Since I do not have a store around and would be ordering from the Internet, I wanted some advice from those who have used the products before. I feel salespeople can be pushy and obviously not always honest when they are trying to sell the product. (I know this is odd..but I am desperate to find products that work..)
