Lush Haul

I've been a Lushie for a while, but I had never gone into a Lush store until yesterday.

It was quite the experience and now I know what I should get online from the UK site. I advise you to not ever buy anything from the Lush USA site, it's way overpriced in comparison to the UK site due to the currency exchange.

Case in point-

This is what I got yesterday.

This totaled 33.86.

I got -

1 .36lb slab of Demon in the Dark soap-13.61 dollars
1 .23lb slab of Karma soap- 8.69 dollars
1 3.3 oz bottle of Yummy Yummy Yummy shower gel- 8.95 dollars

This totaled 33.98 dollars.

I did lots of calculations to figure this out. 28 grams to an ounce, 16 ounces in a lb etc etc

USA versus UK price per gram (since they do it by grams)

Demon in the Dark- 7 cents a gram/4 cents a gram
Karma -8 cents a gram/5 cents a gram

The difference sounds small in terms of individual gram but it's about a 40% difference overall most of the products.

To be fair, there are some differences in ingredients for some of the products, but you can always look it up. As far as I know, UK Ocean Salt is different from USA Ocean Salt, ditto for Coalface.

From now on, I will order from the UK site minus for the fresh face masks. The masks are sold on the UK site but would probably go bad by the time it got to me here in California.

Shipping by the way is about the same as for the USA site, but so much faster! I would recommend you go to a Lush shop to figure out the scents and decide on what you do or do not like. To be honest, I didn't like most of the scents there, they were a bit too sweet smelling for me so I know what to order now!

I'll be reviewing the Lush things soon enough :)
