Mini Lush Haul

I went shopping at the Mall of America this past weekend to buy some last minute necessities for Mexico, and I always have to stop in the Lush Store to pick up some bath products for my daughter and myself.

Lush Haul

Frozen Bath Bomb – $8.95

Description of the bath bomb: shimmering blue bath bomb filled with neroli from Tunisia and precious rose oil from Turkey

Unicorn Horn Bubble Bar– $7.95

Description of this bubble bar: Lavender, ylang ylang and neroli


You’ve Been Mangoed Luxury Bath Melt– $6.45 I picked up two of these and gave one away as a gift.

This bath melt is loaded with nutritious mango and avocado butters to condition and moisturize the skin. The fruity fragrance comes from skin toning lemon and lime essential oils.


Tea Tree Water Toner– $10.95

This tony is for oily, acne-prone dull or tired skin.  Filled with cleansing tea tree, juniper berry and grapefruit waters keep skin looking fresh and balance skin tone.

Ulta and Skincare Haul

I have recently been on a mission to find the perfect skin care regiment for my skin.  I have always suffered with sensitive, oily, acne-prone skin.  I have never had “perfect skin” unless you count when I would tan every day…but with years of sun damage, I have finally chosen to take care of my skin, focus on quality ingredients and prevent further damage and aging.  Here’s my latest haul from mostly Ulta and Sephora. I am also going to Mexico next month and I needed to find some products that will protect my skin when I am soaking up the hot Mexican sun.
