You all know I’m a huge Lushie – I hardly keep it a secret.
My bathroom is overrun by black pots and bottles of my favourite goodies, as well as my little stash of bathbombs and bubble bars, and despite this, I’m still always wanting to buy more.
One of the best things for me about trying new Lush products, is having a play around with them and finding different or more unusual ways to use them in my daily routine, and I’ve got a few to share with you today!
Use Rub Rub Rub as a shampoo/conditioner
Crazy as it sounds, I swear by using this shower scrub in my hair. I probably do it at least once every two weeks, and while it seems totally weird to get that rough, salty concoction into your locks, it does such a good job of giving your hair a good deep clean. I use it either after shampooing, or as a stand-alone hair washing product!
Put shower jelly into a loofah
While I adore so many of the shower jellies, I can find them a nuisance to use without dropping them on the floor and losing half of it down the drain. Instead of slipping around, grab yourself a little chunk, stick it into a loofah and use the friction from that to work it up into a good froth of body washing goodness! Refresher is my fave to do this with!
Fairy Dust as sparkly dry shampoo
Lush’s own dry shampoo, No Drought, doesn’t do all that much for my hair, but I do keep my bottle of Fairy Dust dusting powder in my handbag for emergency dry shampooing needs. I find it does a better job of covering any greasy looking roots, and its got glitter in it, need I say more? I’m also super curious to try this with other dusting powders!
Spray your pillow with Breath of Fresh Air
My favourite toner also works great as a relaxing pillow spray. Its seaside scent makes me feel like I’m drifting off to sleep after a day on a beautiful beach!
Reuse little black pots for travel sized toiletries
While I’m collecting up my little black pots, and haven’t quite got enough for that free face mask, I use the smaller ones to decant my big bottle of shampoo into to put in my gym wash bag or take on holiday with me
