It's a rumour that somebody posted on the AU/NZ Lush forums that they read on the international forums.
I hope they're wrong!!!

Anywho, I'm excited, Lush VIP night tonight!

We'll know soon enough! I had a whiff of Tuca Tuca again yesterday and was quite disgusted. Did not like the smell one bit! It's a shame Strawberry Feels is on the list, I bought one yesterday, it smells sooooo good! I should really get Mange Too as well, it smells so divine. It's a shame about Sakura, because it's so beautiful. I made my own one yesterday :(

Yes, but who cares what everyone else says? I don't like the smell of it, but you do! We have different noses, that's all!

It might smell different on, I guess. Just like Lust solid smells a bit llike pot pourri (I dislike sandalwood), but when on, it smells really gentle and fresh floral.

I really liked Tuca Tuca when I sniffed it in store - but when I put it on I hated it! It just didn't smell right on me. Shame as I love Bathos and was hoping it would be like that.

I love Tuca Tuca :) It definitely smells better on, as do all of the fragrances. Spraying them into the air or on a smelling stick really doesn't give you a true idea of how it smells.

You lucky lady, getting the think pink box! :D

I've cracked out the snow fairy early this year, and also gløgg. I wonder what Christmas goodies we'll get this year...

Hey, sort've a random request, and hopefully this is allowed, but is anybody in the US interested in a barely used pot of Herbalism and a bottle of Grease Lightning? I bought them about a month ago and they're both making me break out. I obviously can't return them at this point but was hoping to maybe get $20 or so if anyone wants them. Or, ideally, if someone lives close by a Lush and could maybe pick me up an alternate product instead? I live in South Dakota and so have always had to order online. Send me a PM if you might be interested!

Can anyone recommend a Lush product for me? In the winter my skin gets extremely dry. I used to use the Aveeno body lotion with collodial (sp?) oatmeal in it, which left my skin moisturized and soft but not greasy. Then, I recently found out they are not 100% free of animal testing. (Bastards!) So, I need an intense moisturizer and maybe a very gentle cleanser for in the shower? Thanks in advance!

I'd suggest going to a store & seeing someone in there instead.....or at least waiting for one of our resident managers to reply to you.

It really is worth going into the store. They've got an indention of a booth set up in Macy's at one of my malls and it was like a nice quiet little area. Anywho, I have eczema, told one of the girls this and they gave me a few teeny tiny sample tubs to try for in the shower and afterwards for softening and moisturizing my skin. SO worth going to the store!

I recommend Dream Cream. It is oat milk based and has other really soothing ingredients. It comes across as light and runny, but it is very strong in moisturisation. It's probably the vegan friendly alternative to Aveeno as I've heard of it working really well on eczema.
As for a shower gel/soap, can't go past Honey I Washed The Kids. It's very moisturising and great for sensitive skin (they do market it to families, and as the name suggests, it's also kid friendly). They are bringing back It's Raining Men shower gel (which is essentially HIWTK in SG form).
Also, in winter, avoid having really stupid hot showers as it kills your skin, a lot and keep a bowl of water near each heater in your house to prevent it getting bone dry :)

Received my LUSH package in the mail last week. Atm I am absolutely LOVING the Angels on Bare Skin facial cleanser. It's doing wonders for my dry/combo skin. Not 100% sure what I think of the other stuff just yet. So far, my dry skin is happy though. Thanks for the advice, ladies. :D

AOBS is the best cleanser I've ever used IMO.
Next best is Ultrabland (as a make up remover).

I don't very often come into this thread because it makes me want to buy so much stuff :O
Just now, I was mourning the end of my Comforter bubble bar when I noticed a phantom Lush bag in my bathroom. In there I had 2 bath bombs (rose queen), Seanik solid shampoo and a shower sugar scrub. I must have purchased these when I got some of Lush's violet shampoo, I got that violet shampoo LAST DECEMBER. I am happy now.

I asked for Lush gift packs for christmas. I hope I wont be disappointed.
